Goodbye WORLD OF HAMMER GLAMOUR

All good things must come to an end and I have now transferred the entire old World of Hammer Glamour website over to my harddrive. It was a doodle thanks to the HTTrack Website Copier that saved me the hassle of having to store every individual page one by one.

I haven't really done anything with that website since 2007. It only cost $5.95 per month to host but over the years it added up to a ridiculous amount that I'd rather have in my pockets than in Topcities'. I also can't say that I got a lot of contacts through it lately so no point in keeping it around any further.

No idea how long the site will remain in cyberspace once my subscription has been cancelled. If you're ripping you'll miss the info, don't worry as I have already started transferring some of it over. Just check on the Hammer Glamour Site Update tag in this blog.

I will gradually transfer all the rest over as well.... or at least whatever I may still deem noteworthy.

While transferring the data I noticed a couple of items that I had even forgotten I had previously published. Correction: That I had even forgotten I ever had!

Top of the list are scans of The Munro Mystique. Prior to the current Fanclub magazine this was the first fanzine dedicated to Caroline Munro. There were at least 4 issues published in and around 1981. It was initially called Caroline Munro Newsletter. Thanks to Ken Chin from my Caroline Munro Yahoo group I got scans for most issues and had them available for readers of the website. Over the next hour or two I will now repost them on this blog. Enjoy!
