Welcome to BlueHarvest.net!
So... you liked the site and you now want to know who's behind it, eh? :-)
My name is Sofia and I'm a Star Wars crazed fan from Sweden.
"Blue Harvest" is my Internet-handle/nickname. Back in '95 when I started to chat in Star Wars chatrooms I used
Blue Harvest as my name and that's how it started. (I drew the cartoon to the top-right of the screen
to be my cyberspace alter-ego.)
The name "Blue Harvest" is actually a reference to a code-name given to "Return of the Jedi" while filming it.
To fool over-zealous fans and reporters, and keep them off the set; the crew was given T-shirts and baseballcaps
with "Blue Harvest" printed on them. If anyone asked; they were instructed to say they were filming a movie called
"Blue Harvest - Horror beyond imagination".
BlueHarvest.net first came on-line in Febuary '96 under the name "A Hitch Hiker's Guide to Star Wars".
By May '98 the site had grown out of it's old server and moved into a new one. At the same time I
changed its name to "BlueHarvest.net" as I registered that domain for the site.
I made this "about-page" to clear up a few things:
1. I'm female. (Not male which everybody seems to automatically assume since it's a sci-fi site.)
2. Swedish, not American.
3. And finally: there's just one person working on the site.
There! Now that we've got that out of the way I'd like to take the opportunity to thank a few
fantasic people who have been extra nice and contributed to this site.
