January 2012

  • 1.18.12 We joined in the online protest today against SOPA and PIPA by turning our website black.

  • 3.23.11 We changed the background of our site, Art.Net today so that it's a bit lighter. Hopefully this makes viewing the text on the site pages somewhat easier. The concept behind the background is that it is stone... so that our entries are virtually "written in stone".

These networks can be great tools for artists who are trying to connect with others in the art world.

  • 7.15.09 David O'Connell, a painter, has just joined Art.Net. Please check out his studio where you can see his art.

June 2009

  • 6.8.09 Added an Alphabetical Index to the Galleries Link Page to help in navigation.

  • 6.6.09 Today is Art.Net's 15th year Anniversary of being in existance. We got our domain on this day in 1994 and have been active ever since, helping artists come online to the Internet and the WWWeb. It's been a good 15 years so far!

  • 6.1.09 Due to the overwhelming response to our featured "Link of the Month", we have decided to change to a featured "Link of the Week" which can be seen on our Links to Other Sites page here on Art.Net.

May 2009

  • 5.8.09 We are updating the Links to Other Sites section of Art.Net. Old links to sites that no longer exist, are being removed. Site URL's that have changed are being updated. New link requests are also being processed and folks are welcome to submit their link requests to our site.

April 2009
  • 4.28.09 Art.Net is back online after having recovered from a power supply hardware failure. Our server was down fromMonday afternoon (4.27.09) til early Tuesday evening (4.28.09). This is the first hardware failure we have had since the new server has been in place (since January 2007). We replaced the power supply with a new one (Antec 430 watt Model EA-430 D) and all is well. The server suffered no other hardware or software problems.

  • 4.23.09 While it seems like little has happened here on Art.Net in the past years, many artists continue to update their spaces. So this site is still very much alive. Link requests are also being processed and folks are welcome to submit their link requests to our site.

    And finally, new artists are still being accepted and are in the process of creating their studio spaces here on our site. Once they are ready, we will link their spaces into the site pages so that visitors can view their art. If artists are interested in joining Art.Net, please check out our Artist Submissions page.

October 2007
  • 10.25.07 Updating the site pages.... While it seems like little has happened here on Art.Net in the past months, many artists continue to update their spaces. So this site is still very much alive. Link requests are also being processed and folks are welcome to submit their link requests to our site. We are also researching soclai networking sites (like twitter.com, tribe.net, and facebook.com) to learn more about the new Web 2.0 technologies that we hope to someday include here on Art.Net.

    And finally, new artists are still being accepted and are in the process of creating their studio spaces here on our site. Once they are ready, we will link their spaces into the site pages so that visitors can view their art. If artists are interested in joining Art.Net, please check out our Artist Submissions page.

February 2007
  • 2.14.07 Some of the artists here on Art.Net have created a show for this Valentines Day. It's called "The Art of Love". We hope you enjoy it.

  • 2.8.07 We have been updating the Links Section of our site today, adding links submissions that have been submitted to Art.Net. Most are in the artists' studios section. If you know of a site that you would like to see listed here on Art.Net, please submit it via our Links Submission Form. Links are free though we encourage folks to make a dontaion to help support our work here on Art.Net. Spam submissions are just ignored and will not be added to our site.

January 2007
  • 1.31.07 We have installed Mailman which is a GNU Free Software Mailing List Manager here on Art.Net, We are currently converting the mailing lists here on our site to use this new service. The nice thing about this software is that it enables us to have private mailing lists here. Since they are private, we will not have to worry about spam on the lists.

  • 1.22.07 Web Access Logging and Report Generations have been re-enabled here on Art.Net. So member artists will start receiving their nightly access reports (which are sent out just after midnight). These reports give details on which sites accessed artists' spaces as well as what files were accessed. If member artists are not receiving their reports, please send a note to webmasters@art.net and we will look into the matter.

  • 1.21.07 We now have the forms function working here on Art.Net. We had to port the software so that it would run on our new server. This means that we are now once again accepting link submissions and artist submissions to join our site. Please note that spammers submissions are ignored. So spammers can type all they want but the entries will just be deleted and not added to Art.Net.

  • 1.18.07 Since we upgraded to the new Apache webserver, image maps are no longer processed using a cgi-bin program. Instead, they are performed by a built in module within the apache server. This makes for faster processing. Because of this change, the way an image map is called within a webpage and the format of the image map config file have changed. See Using Image Maps under the Art.Net help pages to learn how to use the new image map format. The Art.Net site buttons are really an image map and all have been converted to the new format so that they now work again.

  • 1.18.07 James Copeland, a painter, has joined Art.Net and shares some of his works via his studio here on Art.Net. Please join us in welcoming James to our site by visiting his studio here on Art.Net.

  • 1.14.07 We just installed a new FTP server so artists should now be able to connect to their spaces via ftp. If you have any problems connecting, please let us know via webmaster@art.net. Thanks!

  • 1.12.07 We have been working hard on elimating the spam that Art.Net receives. At this time it looks like 96.1% of all the email received is being tagged as spam and rejected. If you are trying to send us email and your email is being rejected, you can send a note to the postmaster@art.net via liletheartist@yahoo.com. Hopefully we can then help resolve the email rejection issues. We are using several DNSBL's and have created our own black list of spammers who are not caught by the black list databases (DNSBLs). So there is a chance we might have some false positives (email tagged as spam when it isn't spam)..

  • 1.11.07 Good news to report on the spam fighting front here at Art.Net. We are now using dnsbl's which are spammer blacklist databases and this has helped to cut down the amount of spam our site receives. We are currently rejecting up to 87% of the incoming mail as it has been tagged as spam. If you are trying to send email to someone at Art.Net and can't get your email through, please send a note to postmaster@art.net. We are also using our own blacklist compiled from spam that gets past the dnsbls. This is a private list so if spam is received from a user or site, that user or site gets tagged. It is a relief to finally get the spam problem under control here at Art.Net. Artists who have requested to have their email disabled here might want to have it enabled now. Just send a note to postmaster@art.net to let us know.

  • 1.11.07 For artists who would like to use ftp to access their accounts, we now offer access via ftp using psftp. This is a secure form of ftp. To use it you need to download the application called psftp. If you have any problems, please send a note to support@art.net.

  • 1.9.07 Since we now have a backup of Art.Net, artists accounts have been re-enabled and artists should be able to access their spaces here on our site again. If ftp does not work, please use our File Manager. If you can't access your account, please send a note to memberships@art.net and we will assist artists in getting access again to their spaces here on Art.Net.

  • 1.8.07 We have been updating our sendmail this evening to try and decrease the amount of spam that Art.Net receives. Thank goodness for the DNSBL's... They are really helping to make a difference! Member artists of our site should hopefully notice a big decrease in the amount of spam coming to them via Art.Net.

  • 1.8.07 We moved the new server into the rackmount case today and it's now sitting in a new location at our co-lo. Access via the Internet may actually be faster now. Downtime was from 2:30ish pm to 4:00ish pm PST.

  • 1.5.07 We got the mail functions working this evening here on Art.Net so artists should start receiving their email again. We linked the sendmail to use spamhaus.org so that we can filter out alot of the spam that our site receives. So far, it looks like at least 1 in every 5 emails received is spam. Email sent to us from faked art.net accounts will no longer be accepted as well.

  • 1.4.07 Art.Net's entrance page has been restored as of 1:35pm PST. This effectively opens our site's virtual front door to the Internet once again. Please note that not all site functions are working at this time so you may encounter some errors and strange effects until the upgrade / restore has been fully integrated into the new Art.Net server.

  • 1.3.07 Because of the disk failures and old architecture, Art.Net was upgraded to a new machine today and came back online to the Internet at around 7:30pm today. Apart from the new hardware (which includes a really fast CPU, 2x400 gig disks and 1 gig of ram), Art.Net is also running a new operating system (moving from NetBSD to FreeBSD). Apache was also upgraded to the latest version available. The Art.Net website is being restored from the most recent version of the website that existed when the system went down so no data loss occurred. There is a transition period to integrate the old data with the new server so some things are not working (like sendmail, ftp, web forms, searches, imagemaps and login access for members). We are hoping to have these site functions available as soon as possible.

December 2006
  • 12.29.06 Art.Net suffered another disk failure on this day. Since the new machine has been aquired for Art.Net, preparations were made to do a complete site upgrade. Until this upgrade happens, Art.Net will remain down and unaccessable.

November 2006
  • 11.30.06 Art.Net suffered a disk failure on this day. The site was restored from a backup disk and brought back online. Because of this failure, preparation was made to aquire a new computer system to serve as the Art.Net webserver.

October 2006
  • 10.24.06 Updated Art.Net's Free Speech page. There is case that is currently in the courts which is challenging the "Child Online Protection Act" (COPA) law which was passed in 1998. In the case, ACLU v. Gonzales, the ACLU is working to get a judgement that would disable the enforcement of COPA. The trial started on Monday, October 23, 2006 and is being held at the United States District Court House for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, located at 601 Market Street in Philadelphia, PA.

September 2006
  • 9.6.06 As the webmaster of Art.Net, I spend alot of time viewing sites that are submitted to our site for linkage. I also view works on many sites that are submitted by artists requesting to join Art.Net. And I have noticed that many art sites actually censor the artists' art and posts made on their sites. Some sites even claim ownership of all art posted on their sites.

    I am honored to say that artists here on Art.Net are not censored in any way... All that is requested is that artists show their art in a non-commercial way. Artists also retain all ownership rights to their art that is posted here on Art.Net. Censorship is an ugly beast and I feel, just causes confusion and frustration. More talk is better than less is solving issues. So I just want to assure all artists that you will not be censored here. To join, please see our join information page.

  • 9.5.06 Added more sites to our Artists' Help Section of Art.Net. We have some new artists who have joined our site who are new at writing HTML so hopefully this resource for HTM teaching sites will help.

August 2006

June 2006

  • 6.12.06 We have started a new section in our Art.Net Link Pages. Since we have so many links to other offsite artist studios here on Art.Net, we felt that it was time to start an "Artist Studio Link of the Month ". Each month (starting June 2006) we will feature an artist's studio space that we link to. Most of the studio links that we have listed have been submitted by the artists themselves. If you are an artist and would like us to link to your space, please feel to submit a link.

May 2006

  • 5.29.06 In Memory... The Celebration of Memorial Day, 2006 here on Art.Net.

  • 5.19.06 Fixed the guestbook for Art.Net so folks can start signing it again. We were getting spammed something aweful via this form so we moved it to a new location. Hopefully that will hold off the spammers. In the meantime, if you are a visitor and real person, please feel free to sign. We would love to hear your comments about your visit to Art.Net.

  • 5.19.06 Added a new studio section for Film & Motion Media artists here on our home site, Art.Net.

  • 5.18.06 We have lightened the grey marble background of the Art.Net site pages just a shade. We received a concern from an artist viewing our site who felt that it was hard to read the text on the site pages because of the darkness of the image. Hopefully this helps!
    Thanks to member artist Kiyotei for the editing of the image. The original image was created by Lile from paper stock in 1996. This created the previous background for our site. For those linking to bg.jpg, you can still access it via bgo.jpg.

  • 5.18.06 We have added a general copyright notice at the bottom of the entrance page of Art.Net. While each artist determines how their work is shared and what copyrights they want to keep, it might be wise to place a Copyright Notice ( © ) on the site as a whole. Please let us know if you have any thoughts on this... just email a note to webmasters@art.net.

  • 5.17.06 We have updated the artists resources link section so that types of resources are grouped together in alphabetical order. Hopefully this will help artists to find what they are looking for.

  • 5.14.06 It's Mothers' Day now and some of the artists here on Art.Net are sharing art that is related to this holiday. Please see Lile's studio to see an example...

  • 5.12.06 We have added two new sections to the Art.Net Online Art References link pages. There is a new art blog section and a wiki section.

  • 5.10.06 We are continuing to add new link requests in our Links Section here on Art.Net. If you have a site you would like us to link to, please submit your link request and if appropriate, we will add your site to Art.Net.

  • 5.2.06 Activated the Current Art Happenings section here on Art.Net. Please submit your art happening via our Current Art Happenings submission form.

April 2006

  • 4.29.06 Intalled a new sendmail program which should help to cut down on the amount of spam received at Art.Net.

  • 4.23.06 Posted Action Alert on Art.Net entrance page to help get the word out about Moveon.Org's petition to prevent Internet Censorship by US Congress.

  • 4.3.06 The good news is that after much discussion and after all the votes were cast in the Wikipedia.Org community, it was decided that the Art.Net article would be kept! This is a big win for all artists! And it is also a big win in the quest of Free Speech for all on the Internet and WWWeb!

March 2006

June 2005

  • 6.26.05 We have created a new space here on Art.Net for Private Art Collections. This space is for people who have private art collections that they would like to share. I have found there is wonderful art that exists in such collections but remains unseen as it is only viewable in private homes and offices. Hopefully this space will enable public viewing of such private works. If you are interested in showing your art collections in a non-commercial way, please contact us via pac@art.net.
