|Long Description||A Hollywood studio executive with a shaky moral compass (The Shawshank Redemption s Tim Robbins) finds himself caught up in a criminal situation that would fit right into one of his movie projects, in this biting industry satire from Robert Altman (Short Cuts). Mixing elements of film noir with sly insider comedy, The Player, based on a novel by Michael Tolkin, functions as both a nifty stylish murder story and a commentary on its own making, and it is stocked with a heroic supporting cast (Peter Gallagher, Whoopi Goldberg, Greta Scacchi, Dean Stockwell, Fred Ward) and a lineup of star cameos that make for an astonishing Hollywood who s who. This complexly woven grand entertainment (which kicks off with one of American cinema s most audacious and acclaimed opening shots) was the film that marked Altman s triumphant commercial comeback in the early 1990s. DVD SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES - New 4K digital restoration - Audio commentary from 1992 featuring director Robert Altman, writer Michael Tolkin, and cinematographer Jean Lépine - Interview with Altman from 1992 - New interviews with Tolkin and production designer Stephen Altman - Cannes Film Festival press conference from 1992 with cast and crew - The Player at LACMA, a short documentary about the shooting of the film s fund-raiser scene - Map to the Stars, a gallery dedicated to the cameo appearances in the film - Deleted scenes and outtakes - The film s opening shot, with alternate commentaries by Altman, Lépine, and Tolkin - Trailers - More - PLUS: An essay by author Sam Wasson|

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.
