24-Dec-1999

Consolidated the Newest Rant and Rant Archive into one button entitled Rants.

01-Dec-1999

Added another band to the Other Bands page.

15-Sep-1999

Added Rant #14: Rotterdam, Holland, 10th September 1999.
By the way, due to several factors including a new job, I haven't had much time to work on the page lately or even keep up with all the email. Sorry. Hopefully things will improve.

01-Jul-1999

The Maiden trivia contest is over, and the results are posted to Rant #10: Iron Maiden Contest Results. Also added some interesting photos to the "other pictures" section of The X Factor.

29-Jun-1999

Updated the lyrics to "Roll Over Vic Vella" so that they pretty much match the Iron Maiden version of the song. Also added my interpretation of the spoken dialogue at the beginning of the song.

27-Jun-1999

Added the ticket to the introduction page. You'd better get yours before they're all gone!

13-Jun-1999

Upgraded the Ed Hunter unlocker to level 5.

09-Jun-1999

Added Rant #9: Iron Maiden Contest. It's a contest that was inspired by the official one for the re-releases, but maybe the questions on this one are a bit harder.

05-Jun-1999

Added an unlocker for Ed Hunter that gives immediate access to levels 2 and 3.

03-Apr-1999

Added the Man On The Edge picture disc.

19-Mar-1999

Added an interesting quote to the "Still Life" commentary from Tolkien's Lord Of The Rings that seems to eerily match the subject of the song.

15-Mar-1999

Added Bruce to the Other Bands page.

14-Mar-1999

Removed the About The Ratings page because it didn't really say anything that wasn't already obvious. Replaced it with the Other Bands page, which briefly describes a few of my favourite non-Maiden bands.
