The New List Is Loaded

April 12, 2012

OK. That took way longer than we ever anticipated. But, for a couple of guys without computer science degrees, I’m going to say we did a decent job. The database underpinning the site has been updated with EJ’s list. In 2007, when the site was first loaded, the list contained about 29,000 records. In 2012, the list is now 97,000 records at more than 53,000 unique addresses. More changes to come on the site to bring it more up-to-date.


Why You Are Here

January 8, 2012

Hey! What happened?! Well…we’re updating The Movieland Directory site. EJ’s latest database contains over 90,000 entries. That’s three times the original list we posted in 2007. This is a relatively geeky operation, one we undertake infrequently. We’re hoping our old notes, and a few beers, will minimize the time involved.

BTW…we are looking to do more with our site. We’re looking for a developer or partner with experience in location-based, points-of-interest, smartphone development. If you are that person, or know someone, drop us a line at tonyf@movielanddirectory.com

Thanks!


TMD Redux

November 17, 2009

Well…2009 has been pretty much of a bust with respect to doing anything with the online components of the TMD brand.  LOL!  But, we never say never, and EJ has never – wait, I just said never – ceased working on his address list.  Our current online database at movielanddirectory.com contains about 29,500 records.  Sometime in the next month or so, we will be loading up EJ’s current list, which contains about 77,000 records!

More to come.

In the meantime, I read this today regarding online mapping and this in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal regarding a house for sale in what I presume to be Hollywoodland.

Ciao!

This is just fun, for for those of us who…find this stuff enjoyable.  In addition to Lisa’s site, who knew there was an associated of like-minded people called Graveyard Rabbits?!  I love it!  Just TRY not to dawdle at those two links!


THE BERN BOOK IS OUT

February 6, 2009

EJ’s biography of Paul Bern is now available. Nice review at Amazon from a loyal reader.  More to come.

Off ‘n Running Tours

November 6, 2008

We like “do it yourself”, and with The Movieland Directory – you can do it yourself.  But, if someone else MUST guide you, we think this is a good idea: Off ‘N Running Tours.
