Long DescriptionIn 1998, the American Film Institute undertook to determine, by vote of 1,500 of America's movie professionals, filmmakers, historians, critics, agents, actors, executives, and the like, bona fide film people all, the 100 Greatest American Films of All Time. That is, by commemorating the last century, which encapsulates the entire history of American narrative film (not really a century, beginning in the teens, and extending through the end of 1997 for voting purposes---you do the math), the AFI attempted to establish a definitive list of the top 100 by a popular vote of the industry. The result was aired on CBS in June 1998, in this 145-minute TV special. Top-loaded as it is with sentimental favorites, the list serves best as a celebration of American film, with short clips of favorite moments from the films, annotated by filmmakers as august as Martin Scorsese and Sidney Lumet, among many, many others. Learn what makes Dustin Hoffman or Burt Reynolds weep, if you must. But as a list of the "greatest" American films of all time, the list is greatly lacking---no Buster Keaton, no Lubitsch, scant silents... these are a few of the objections a knowledgeable filmgoer might make. Better to use this program to whet one's appetite for more films, to re-view past favorites, and explore those of others, to argue with it for its omissions and slights. That's if one can get past the constant reminders of our hosts, Jodi Foster, Richard Gere, and Sally Field, that what we are seeing are THE GREATEST AMERICAN FILMS OF ALL TIME. --Jim Gay

Although we have had a couple days lately when we have been down for maintenance, looking back over the last couple years we can say that we have been available 99.5% of the time and that isn't too bad at all.

With the latest outage, we struggled to replace damaged equipment and bring the new boxes online as quickly as possible. We now think that we have everything up and running but we will keep monitoring for little things that may have gotten missed.

We feel so bad when ever the system is off line for more than a few minutes or for any unexpected events. But to put thinks into prespective, we looked back over the past 2 years and found that we have been off line completely for less than 100 hours with the longest period being this last outage when we ended up doing a full rebuild on our main server box.

With all things considered we think we are doing pretty good for a small company managing multiple web sites as well as our regular day-to-day business.

We will continue to improve and make efforts to reduce future down time. Even at 99.5% up time, there is room for improvement.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
