Today was the launch day of this sites search engine. This site has been growing daily now, and it's getting big, so I added a search engine. You can find the search engine on the main page. It's there on the lower right beneath the guest book image. To use the engine, simply type in what you're looking for. Like "guitar tabs" for example. You type it in, and then click the search button. It's very simple to use, and is very powerful. So try that out - you might find a page here on the site that you haven't seen before. Comments and/or questions on the search engine are highly welcomed at:

So you can check out that new shiny wallpaper right now on the wallpaper page. Also today I updated the Online fan list with info, and another photo. PS> Dozens of audio/video clips are coming tomorrow.

December 24, 1999

I think today is the biggest update ever on any CTD site really. It really took 60% of the day from me. First the online fan list was updated with info on Anja Hezek with a photo, and a photo of TekMan was added to his info.
Then the biggest part. I just created 22 audio clips of all the non-album songs. They can be found in the RARE audio clip section of the clips page. The make it harder on me and easier on you the people I have each clip in BOTH RealAudio and MP3. Along with the title of each track listed there is also a few lines of info written on each of the songs. All displayed on a user friendly layout. So check out the RARE audio clip page. Very soon there will be a collection of other audio clips, along with a couple dozen video clips. Lots more to come everyone :)

December 23, 1999

Today the Misc section was updated with the newly created Artwork page, along with the start of the Fan List page. Thanks to the e-mails of 6 different people, I was told that I left out the Peter Pumpkinhead music video clip. Sure enough when I checked, it wasn't there. So today, that video clip is now on the Music Video clips page and the Song & Video List page. 7 or 8 other pages had minor updates as well (the usual maintenance to keep things running in tip top condition :) ) Happy Holidays everyone, and yes I'll be updating the site even on Christmas eve.

December 22, 1999

The Misc section got a start today. I just finished the layout of the main page of the Misc section. The parts of the Misc section will be added along the next couple days. The kalofft games info page was updated with Laura Roden winning round 3 of Guess That Word! The Song & Video List page was also updated with video clips for each of the music videos. A few other graphics were added, and I upgraded the Flash menu bar with the Misc page link. Look for parts of the Misc section tomorrow coming to life...

I'm asking fans to submit the following for that list. Send a photo of yourself, along with the answers to these questions: Age, Sex, Favorite CTD Album, Favorite CTD Song. I hope that most of you can do that. It will give all fans a chance to see each other, which is always a good thing. :-) So send that info to me by e-mail at: Thanks
