Branson Trip Deposit
Submitted by REmig on Friday, September 24, 2004 - 7:02am

October 8th is the deadline for your trip deposit for Branson.  Branson is a performance opportunity on two different theatre stages and hopefully we will spread a terrific image of Merrillville High School.  The trip really is a wonderful opportunity for everyone.

Mid-week updates: choir chalkboard, calendar
Submitted by TDobes on Wednesday, September 8, 2004 - 11:56pm

Just a quick note about two more new things that we added this week...

We recently added the "choir chalkboard" which is basically a log (or "blog," if you'd prefer) for Mr. Emig very similar to this one I'm using. The goal here is to replace the old page we had set up, which was very seldom updated. We'll see if he actually updates this one... feel free to bug him about it. Wink!

There seems to be a great deal of confusion over when events are happening this year. As usual, there have been several thousand changes to the calendar since the parenting calendar and student calendars were printed. Therefore, I've posted a calendar here on the web page. For now, it's just a table listing the dates and events... eventually, I hope to turn it into an actual interactive event calendar. We had one of these on the old site, but I'd like to set one up here such that folks other than me can maintain it. (Whether they actually will or not remains to be seen. Laugh )

Anyway, that's all for today. More later this week... maybe.

Contest Concert 2004 Update
Submitted by TDobes on Monday, September 6, 2004 - 10:35pm

Today I finished putting the audio online from part 1. I still need to capture photos for both the 1st and 2nd part before the concerts are officially "finished."

Tomorrow, I've got a lot to do, so I don't expect to have any time for the web page... and Wednesday looks busy as well. Look for the next update on Thursday or Friday, most likely. In the meantime, enjoy the audio... that's what it's all about, after all.

Contest Concerts from 2004
Submitted by TDobes on Monday, September 6, 2004 - 12:13am

For a while, I'm going to concentrate my choir efforts on putting concerts online. I've been sorely neglecting this job for the past few years... I spent a bit of time and put together a table of the present status of all concerts. As you can see, there is much work to be done. Today I made some progress on both part 1 and 2 of the 2004 Contest concert. Music from part 2 is now online, although captions and photos are still missing. I hope to finish the music from part 1 tomorrow. (and hopefully at least get started on the photos from both parts)

It took from roughly noon till midnight (minus a 2-hour break for dinner) to finish and set up the music from part 2. That's 10 hours, for those keeping track at home. I think I'm beginning to remember why I was so lazy about getting this done in the first place. *grumble*

Anyway... stay tuned... hopefully more progress soon.

Major Update: Drupal
Submitted by TDobes on Saturday, September 4, 2004 - 9:01pm

Uhmmmmmm... What's going on here? What happened to my web site? (obligatory Homestar quote)

The primary choir web site has recently undergone a significant behind-the-scenes update. We've switched from the old version of phpwebsite we've been running since early 2003 to a new (not even released yet) version of Drupal. As I've been putting a bit of effort into improving Drupal lately, it was only a matter of time before I finally took the plunge and made the changeover. ...read more...

MerrillvilleChoir.com Development Log
Submitted by TDobes on Saturday, September 4, 2004 - 8:43pm

You are currently viewing Tom's MerrillvilleChoir.com development blog. As I have been making a lot of changes to the site lately, I decided it might be beneficial to everyone if I posted about the changes as I made them. If you're looking for my personal blog, it's on a separate site entirely.

Look at Tom's ToDo list for MerrillvilleChoir.com (includes the status of putting concerts online)
