The forum continues to grow
I haven't written anything in this section for ages. There is a reason for that.
BlueHarvest.net's Forum is so busy
these days it's stealing all the time I used to spend on updating the site. It's
growing faster than Jabba the Hutt at an all-you-can-eat buffet table and its
members are always happy to welcome newcomers.
As for future updates of the rest of the site... well... who knows? I have tons
of Prequels material I could add. But with my webspace depleted it will
have to wait until I can find some more.
As ever I hope you enjoy what's here. Why not stop by the
Forum and have a look-see? You won't
find a friendlier place anywhere on the web. :-)

Today is a day that I've been waiting for for almost 3 years.
The BlueHarvest.net BBS is finally shedding its old skin and moving
into a brand spanking new system witch will greatly improve its speed
and has all the latest features.
For those of you who have visited the forum lately you have most likely
been frustrated by long load times and that was the main reason for
switching to a new system.
In this process we'll be saying good bye to a couple of dear old friends...
The Stars/ranking system works differently in this new system
Your login now also works as your nickname
Signatures, as well as avatars, change everywhere at once when you update it
Maybe I'll be able to get around this in the future but even if it proves to
be impossible... prepare to fall in love with these new spiffy features instead:
A better Private Messaging system
More comprehensive Profiles
My assistant (helps you keep track of new posts etc)
Head on over to the new forum and have a look!
The new address is: http://forum.blueharvest.net
Your login and password are the same as before. (As your login name and nickname now are one
and the same, please PM me if you want to change your name.)
Please be aware that the forum has been opened in a half finished state. Some old codes
in signatures, odd buttons, missing smiles and other beauty flaws like that are being
worked on later the week. In the mean time: "Sorry about the mess." - Han Solo ;-)
I hope you will enjoy the improved speed and new features. See you around the forum!

Good news! After a year's absence - the BlueHarvest.net video archive
back up and running. Thanks to the very generous contribution of one Lol
McBride I now have the space needed to host the vast archive once more.
400 MB of Star Wars fun, including the web's only complete copy of the
Star Wars Holiday Special, Star Wars trailers, fan movies, cut scenes from
the original trilogy, Star Wars related commercials and tv shows, audition
footage, spoofs, behind the scenes and "making of" documentaries, music
videos and more.
(Keep your fingers crossed that the archive will be able to stay up this
As some of you have noticed - there has been a severe lack of updates of
BlueHarvest.net in the last few months. I'd like to thank to those of you
who have mailed me their encouragement during this time. You provided me
with the kick in the rear end that I needed and your enthusiasm is the
reason I'm doing this, so thanks. ;-)
Bored with your old screensavers?
Can't find any good Star Wars screensavers?
Never fear! BlueHarvest.net has the answer.
First up is the "Star Wars Stick Figure Animation Screensaver"
Remember those quirky little animations on the main page? Here's
all of them collected together in a screensaver that will
have you in stitches.
Second we have the "Star Wars Two Generations Screensaver"
A tribute to two generations of creative minds behind the
greatest movies ever made... Can you spot the similarities between
the new and the old? ;-)
Get them in the downloads section!
Bad news folks...
I'm very sad to announce that after 6 years I've been forced to shut down the
BlueHarvest.net video archive. Without a new sponsor that can handle these
large and popular files I'm afraid that the archive will stay down. Please
let me know if you or your company would be willing to help. Just mail me for
more details. Thanks!
On a brighter note: The postoffice has been updated with
the "Duel of the Fates" song, a nice postcard with Wedge and "May the force be with you"
cards in Bulgarian and Thai. Enjoy!
It's time for another BlueHarvest.net update!
With the holidays rapidly approaching I thought it would be a good idea to remind you
of a few features that you may have missed.
1. You can download the entire Star Wars Holiday Special in the video archive.
2. You can send free holiday e-cards to friends and family in the post-office.
New this season is 3 tracks from the CD "Christmas In The Stars" by and with Meco,
Threepio and R2D2! The songs are "Christmas in the Stars", "Bells, bells, bells"
and "Sleigh ride". Download them from the sound archive and have a good giggle.
If you want to know more about the CD the songs come from and how to get it I have
included a link below.
For more laughs I'd like to encourage everyone who hasn't already seen the
web-documentary "R2D2 - Beneath the dome" to pay starwars.com a visit. See what
happens with people with resources produce a spoof!
That's it for now. Enjoy and until the next time... have fun!

Sad news Star Wars fans...
I got a letter today from LucasFilm which ordered
me to remove the Episode II trailers from the
site. (And here I thought BlueHarvest.net was
too small for them to notice. :-( )
At least some of you managed to download the
trailers in the few days they were up. :-/
For those of you who missed it: You can still get
the "Breathe" teaser trailer from the official
site, it's linked from the
prequels video archive.

Last but not least I would like to thank those visitors who have
donated pictures, sounds and movie clips to my archives. Your contributions
are sincerely appreciated by myself aswell as my visitors.

"When shooting (Jedi) in the United States we called the film Blue Harvest. Camera Slates, invoices, hotel
reservations, call sheets, production reports, and crew hats and T-shirts all read Blue Harvest.
So when a visitor would ask, 'what are you shooting' and we said 'Blue Harvest,' they went on their way.
Can you imagine what would have happened if we had said, 'We're shooting the next film in the Star Wars trilogy'?"
