Wi Fi problems, site issues and lessons learned

So generally Toy Fair coverage goes very smoothly for me.  This year, not so much.

From Grand Central Station removing their free Wi-Fi access, to page load increases screwing up my page formatting, things were a little wonky this year.  Rest assured, this will not be a trend.  I’ve already talked to my webhost about increasing resources there, and I’ve got a second battery on order for the Droid, so next time around, even if I can’t find Wi-Fi I can at least use the tether (I couldn’t this year until I’d let the phone charge for about an hour).

So, hopefully you’ve enjoyed the coverage, I apologize for the slight bumps in the road this year…things will be better next year when I’m covering in celebration of Renegades Season 2, the 30th Anniversary, and the the returning global phenomenon of G.I. Joe.  :shifty:

Seriously, thanks to everyone for continuing to check the page.  All of the coverage can be found here, and the SuperPage is right here.

Yo Joe!

  • I’ve loved the coverage you’ve provided. As a returning member to the GI Joe collector fold, I am incredibly excited by what Hasbro is doing with the series. Thanks for the coverage and the incredible amount of photos!

  • You don’t need to apologize for spending your time and money to get news and photos to us. Thanks for covering the event!

  • I want to re-iterate the thanks for the coverage. Since it will be weeks and months before most of us get to see this stuff, a few hours won’t make a big difference in the grand scheme. I know it normally takes me a few days to sift through all the stuff I want to see on the various sites.

    Thanks again for all your hard work,

    (PS if anybody complains, let us know and we will bring the wrath of the collecting community down on them.)

  • You’ve done another solid job on covering this stuff just as you’ve done before. Thanks for doing such a fine job of showing us what will make many of us broke in 2011!

    Big thanks for all the trouble you went to. It was great to not have to hunt all over the place for toy fare pictures and info this year.
