    Why not?

    Have you seen the photo synth work that was done, and the detail that you get? Could that be done with any other technology? The answer is a resounding ‘No!’…

    It’s a cool site! I am just jealous that they couldn’t have done that for the previous Stargate shows.

    Awww, come on MGM!
    Bad enough us UK folks can’t watch trailers, without you additionally blocking your entire website.

    Yeah, even we cannuks can’t browse to that site. Way to go MGM, alienate more visitors to your gate (pardon the puns)

    It would be good if people OUTSIDE the US could actually visit it too. You know, these series do not just air in America. They really go from one disaster to another lately.

    You CAN view the site from outside the US. DNS takes 24-48 hours to propagate throughout the world. I am from Australia, and all my friends can see the site fine today.

    I will just say in MGM’s defense the reason that we cannot view episodes outside the US (I am in the UK) is because of copyright laws between countries…not their fault..same reason we can’t get certain things from Amazon.US.

    As to the new site…WOW!…there is so much to see…still looking..

    Not sure why they updated the DNS for all that, surely it’s just a different set of files! No matter, it’s all working now, which is good.
    It’s a shame that that horrible Microsoft garbage means that “Wonderfully Pasted together!” images become a bizarre mismash of horrible pixels, usually just becoming the odd dot on a black background.
    That program’s horrible!
    Much better if you click the “3D to 2D” gallery button on the bottom right of it, and then just plain look at the pictures!

    It’s a completely new server environment, in a new location, so we had to update the IP address.

    I feel sorry for all the non-US folks except the Brits. Now you know how we non-Brits feel when we try to look at the Beeb’s Doctor Who site.
