    You WIll Need To Reset Your Password!!!

    We just moved hosts on this system, and this has caused a few updates. One is the way we encode and store the encoded passwords.

    Your old passwords will NOT work. You will need to reset your password. This is normal. Just click on reset password from the log in screen. Should be smooth as silk to do...

    Sorry for the hassle.

    Other Side Of Maleficent

    I have been looking forward to Maleficent with equal amounts of anticipation and dread. On one hand, she is easily my favorite Disney villain, so cold and so pure, and I want desperately to see more of her and her back-story. On the other hand, she is easily my favorite Disney villain, and I would hate to see her parodied, taken lightly or ultimately destroyed in a film that does not understand this great character. The good news is that this film almost gets it right; but that is also the bad news.

    Disney To Feast In France

    The follow up to Disney’s 2013 Academy Award Winning short Paperman has been announced, and it will premiere at France’s Annecy International Animated Film Festival. Titled The Feast, the short looks to be based on the same stylized CG techniques used on last years Paperman, a more natural and hand-drawn look to computer animation.

    Renegades of Animation: Pat Sullivan

    Pat Sullivan became famous worldwide for his creation of Felix the Cat. What most animation histories gloss over is Sullivan’s checkered past and longtime standing as a wildcat renegade. He didn’t follow the rules. And he made damn sure to fully protect his intellectual properties.

    As you probably noticed, we had a slight outage for the last day. We had a hard drive fail, and it took me a bit of time to restart they system with new hardware.

    Things should be back up to speed, and not data was lost (I think!)

    Thanks again for all who let me know!

    New System

    The moving to a new server might explain my password issue. The PW wouldn't work and had to reset it. All seems to be back to normal.

    Same here; my old super-secure password consistently failed the login procedure. Fortunately, the lost password protocol issued me a new one, and here I am, good to go.

    Oh, and while I'm at it: what happened to the Donate button? I'm overdue to pony up loot to keep the BCDb running, and you'll need funding for the new server. This is your fifth, I think? Or sixth?

    Does everyone have access to the "Free For All" forum in the After Hours Lounge? I've been getting an Error message (see my post in the Moderator Forum).
