Spiffy Entertainment

History of Spiffy Entertainment

Here we have a complete history of updates to this site. You could almost call it a mini blog of sorts long before there was such a thing as blogs. Every time I would make an update, add/delete a section or add/delete a page, I’d write it up here to chronicle my site’s progress. And look at that disparity in years from last update to most recent… ho-ly… yeah, that. It’s been 14 years since I’ve done ANYTHING with this site. Life has a way of turning a person upside down and all around and with all THAT going on for me over the course of that timeframe, I had no motivation or interest in web design anymore. Then I thought to myself… what if overhauled the whole thing? Maybe contribute something a little more appealing than a graveyard to cyberspace. Guess we’ll see.

  • 2001 - Present
  • 6/16/21 - Yeah, you read that right. It’s been 14 years since I’ve updated this site. So what did I do? Complete redesign from the ground up. Eliminated some sections, repurposed others and added an investing section. Added a blog too… not sure why, but I did… see how that goes. Next on the agenda… mobile compatibility… stay tuned.

    7/7/07 - Naturally I had to make an update with this kind of date. Finished and uploaded a complete redesign of the Zelda Section! Much more appealing and cleaner layout.

    4/18/07 - And after another two years, ANOTHER big change! The wrestling section is now officially finished. Since I haven't been keeping up with it in a couple years, and I've kinda lost interest, I've replaced the entire section with a new photography section! A new hobby of mine, so there'll be a good bit of unique content put in there fairly regularly.

    9/14/05 - First addition to the site in over 2 years! YOWZA! New photo manipulations added to the Graphics section.

    6/20/04 - Finally... FINALLY I've made the move over to my new domain. I know... I haven't done all that much with this place over the last year or two, but between the limitations of free hosting and running a few other sites, I kinda tossed this in the corner. But now that I'm on quality hosting, I got a lot more plans for this site (aside from getting it up to date). Having a new comp is also helping get me back into the swing of things. So all is good with SE now... no more "bandwidth exceeded" crap... the site's here to stay.

    4/30/03 - Added Wind Waker-Nintendo Gallery page to Zelda section.

    4/22/03 - Added Wind Waker-Great Sea page to Zelda section.

    4/17/03 - Added Wind Waker main page to the Zelda section.

    11/6/02 - Added World Heavyweight Champions (RAW) and WWE World Tag Team Champions (Smackdown!) to the Wrestling section.

    7/30/02 - Site re-design completed and uploaded. Enjoy!

    7/26/02 - More additions, deletions and one page change:

    • Added: Standard Smilies, Dual Smilies, Bigger Smilies and 9/00-7/02 Winners List
    • Deleted: Favorite Lines, 5.0-4.0 ratings, 3.5 ratings and 3.0 ratings
    • Changed: Downloads page into Graphics page

    7/25/02 - Spiffy Entertainment 2 has been merged with this site. There was also an addition and some deletions to the site as follows:

    • Added: Awards Index
    • Deleted: SE Midi/Lyric Page, Joke of the Week, Interaction Zone and Love/Hate Poem.

    7/24/02 - Complete re-design of entire site underway yet again.

    4/15/02 Took out the Dragon's Den page today. Running really low on web space, so I had to cut something out and that was it unfortunately. Also temporarily discontinued the joke of the week due to time constraints.

    12/28/01 Ok, I haven't made any new additions, but just wanted to point out that I am still alive and so is this site. It's been a busy year, so I didn't have much time to get much together. I've also dedicated a lot of time helping run 80sXchange. I still update things as best I can and from the e-mails I've gotten, the site's still being enjoyed (and the fact I went over my bandwith limit in about a week, says a lot for the site's popularity). Sometime late next year or early 2003 I plan on getting a domain and better hosting...stay tuned and thanks for visiting!
