    With the new Doctor Who spin-off series, Torchwood just a few months away from premiering on the BBC, what better time to add a new Topic for article postings and Forum category dedicated to the new series. Although we have been covering Torchwood since it's first announcement in October 2005, the new sectioins on our site will allow visitors to navigate to areas of interest concerning the new series more easily now.

    After a long hard week of re-installing software, moving everything over from the previous server to the new server, overcoming various glitches and snags, we are finally back up and running on our new server!

    But there still may be bugs... The site has gone public without any real world testing... So there may be problems that will sprout up.

    More updated info on the situation coming soon. Check this article for updates soon.

    UPDATE - The Forums are not working. I need to work on this... Sorry folks.

    It is discouraging since the Forums did appear to be all back and functioning until they were actually tested... Hopefully we can get them working again and have them available for all soon.

    UPDATE: (15 July - 12:25 AM EDT) - I believe the Forums are now working once again! Yeah! But please report any problems you may encounter that were not there prior to the move to our new server. Thanks.

    We are pleased to present the first Doctor Who: Podshock Screensaver. It was graciously created by Paul McClernan and is available for the Mac OS X (Tiger 10.4) platform. We invite any Windows programmers out there to write one for Windows XP, but at the moment, we have this one to offer only available for Mac OS 10.4.

    A tremendous thanks to Paul for putting the time and effort to make this possible and available to our listeners and members. Paul is currently working on Doctor Who Icon Sets which will be available for both Mac and Windows.

    We have launched a new Media Gallery on our site. There are only a couple albums available now with a few images in each currently, but in the coming weeks we will be expanding it.

    Many of the albums will allow you to upload your own images to it. So if you have something you would like to share you may. Submissions will be queued for moderation.

    There's also a feature to order prints with the integration of online photo printing through Shutterfly (print availability will vary depending on the resolution of the original image. This is just a patch-through service, we don't receive any commission on it).

    More albums will be added soon. Including a TARDIS album (photos of TARDIS' spotted on Earth), an art gallery, and more. If you have a suggestion or idea for an album, please let us know.

    It was 42 years ago that a mysterious alien with two hearts, traveling in time and space in what looks like a police box first appeared on television.

    Everyone here at the Gallifreyan Embassy would like to wish all the best to our listeners, readers, and members on this historic anniversary and for the holiday season. Cheers to the BBC and Russell T Davies and everyone involved in the current series for continuing the legend and ensuring it's future for possibly another 42 years and beyond...

    If you have tried to visit our site this week and encountered problems... such as slow downs or finding the site was down all together (perhaps you received a MySQL error message), we do apologize. There have been some ongoing problems with our hosting server which are being addressed, but they are out of our immediate control. Hopefully we will get past these issues quickly and put this behind us. Until then, we ask you to please bear with us and once again we do apologize for any inconvenience.

    Embassy NewsLast month marked the 20th anniversary of the Gallifreyan Embassy. I may have founded it and ran it for the first few years, but it wouldn't have continued on if it wasn't for the hard work of several people...

    Special thanks to all those that kept the club going even when the times seemed very bleak. Hats off to Beth, Genie, Lois, Rosanne, and everyone else that continued the regular meetings, continued printing the newsletters, continued to represent the club at conventions (i.e. I-CON), and so forth.
