All the way back in May I had mentioned that I
was working on programming for our own fan pages and said that I had planned
to have the new section operational by the end of May. Well, as it turns
out, adding info on actors and actresses is a bitch, and looking at over
1600 old articles to see if they relate takes hours. Therefore, it has now
taken just about all summer to polish up the code and insert the starting
24 actors / actresses into the database. Sure, 24 isn't that large of a
number, but let me see you try to do it.
Sean Bean is one of the first in fanpages
CanMag Star Database
All of the fan pages will be listed in the 'Star
Database' section of our website. Yes, I know that this section doesn't
exist yet, but expect it to pop up by this Sunday [only a couple more people
and bugs left]. Hopefully these fan pages will allow users to quickly look
up various people in the entertainment business that have been mentioned
within our articles. So what names should you expect? Check out a few of
the names below:
Some of the names you can expect to see will be
Alan Rickman, Christian Bale, Sean Bean, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Jessica
Alba, Kate Beckinsale, Johnny Depp, Seann William Scott, Vince Vaughn and
more. If you don't see your favorite actror or actress listed, toss us a
line [*cough* email] and suggest some names that we should insert into the
database. I am hoping CanMag.Com to have over 50 completed profiles by Thanksgiving.
Once the 'Star Database' is done I can move on to the 'Ultimate CanMag Search
Engine', a program that will allow you to find trailers, clips, reviews,
and articles by punching in a single word. By the time that is done, school
will have started again and we will be back to cranking out articles.
Sorry for the limited articles today, I have a meeting down in San Diego than going to spend a little time at the beach.
Stay tuned for updates.
