|Long Description||Alden Pyle, an idealistic young American, is sent to Vietnam to promote democracy amidst the intrigue and violence of the French war with the Vietminh. His friend Fowler, a cynical foreign correspondent, looks on but soon finds it difficult to remain simply an observer. Fowler's mistress, a beautiful native girl, creates a catalyst for jealousy and competition between the men and a cultural clash resulting in bloodshed and deep misgivings. Written in 1955 prior to the Vietnam conflict, The Quiet American foreshadows the events leading up to the war. Questions surrounding the moral ambiguity of the involvement of the United States in foreign countries are as relevant today as they were fifty years ago.|

We just finished a big hardware upgrade and then a minor sofware upgrade. Now we are looking at revamping the data layout to make this site more robust and useful to everyone.
The goal is to prove more infomation about each product from various directions.
There will be improvements to connecting products to companies. We will be restoring the "Claim This Product" process that we had to shut down recently. We will be making it possible to attach more information to each product. For example nutritional information to food products.
This set of changes is going to take a lot of work to make sure we don't break anything and that we can manage the data in a reasonable way.
You probably won't see any changes for a couple months because some of these changes take a lot of planning and data conversion. But a few things will be available soon. The first thing we will tackle is the "Claim This Product" process because it is very important to give control to the product owners.
Thanks for visiting the site and partipating. Feel free to send us ideas and other comments. We love to hear from you.
