Site Revision History
Bedno.com has been available electronically since well before the web! The email newsletter has been continuously published for more than twenty years! The following is some detailed site revision history.
- Bedno.com version 11.1
- Homepage and main navigation simplified.
- Emailed newsletter suspended.
- After 1111 weekly newsletters (more than 20 years), Andrew is suspending the emailed version. Andrew may continue to update the online calendars (especially the Year's Best Events guide), but consumer changes and growth of other outlets have left the emailing so underused as to not merit the several additional hours labor it requires to compose. Users are urged to replace it by bookmarking Bedno.com/fun
