E - Friends - I've added a new person to the list, from Europe. (2 December 2006)

E - Friends - I've added a new person to the list. (13 November 2006)

Site - I've finished tweaking a few pages so that the look of this site is pretty much consistent throughout. (10 November 2006)

Articles: (1995) - I've added a very short news item from Q magazine, late 1995. (6 November 2006)

Site - A lot of changes!!

(26 October 2006)

E - Friends - I've added a new person to the list, from the UK. (16 October 2006)

My Writings About Richey And MSP - This is the third and last subdomain that I've redone to eliminate the frames. Again, I've made the pages look at much like they were before as I could.
I've also removed the link to the Toronto Sun newspaper's review of the concert I saw in 1999, since it's no longer online, and made a few other very small changes to several pages in the subdomain. (14 October 2006)

Site - Okay, this is the last time I change the left and right page margins, (I hope)! I've increased them, yet again. (11 October 2006)

Articles - This is the second subdomain that I've redone to eliminate the frames. I've made the pages look as much like they were before as I could. (11 October 2006)

Pictures - I've redone this subdomain to eliminate the frames, (they're no longer considered good web design). The pages look almost the same as they did before, however. (10 October 2006)

E - Friends - I've changed the way the pages look. Now, they're more like how they used to look before I went to PHP pages for E - Friends. (8 October 2006)

Site - I've put the left and right page margins back to how they were before I changed them in January. (8 October 2006)

Banners - Since I've changed the font for the title of this site, I've remade the two banners, using the new font. (7 October 2006)

Home - I've changed the font for the title of this site. The font from The Holy Bible album seemed like a good idea 5½ years ago, when I started using it, but not anymore. (6 October 2006)

Games: Word Game - I've decided against having my answer on the same page. So, I've changed it back to how it used to be, with my answer being on a separate page. (3 October 2006)

E - Friends - I've added a new person to the list, from the UK. (3 October 2006)

Front and Home pages - The biggest change to this site in several years! I've eliminated what used to be the first page, and put most of what had been on it - the site's title, the quote and the link to the richeymail email service - onto what used to be the second page. (1 October 2006)

A Richey Edwards Quiz - I've made a few small changes in how the answers are displayed. (30 September 2006)

Games: Word Game - I've put my answer on the same page as the instructions, but, it's not immediately visible. (30 September 2006)

Legal - This was formally called, "Disclaimers And Privacy Statement", but I've changed the name. I've also removed it from the Home page, and added it to the Site Pages section of the nav menu/contents page. (29 September 2006)

FAQ, Games, "Richey Is Dead" and Sounds - I've changed the navigation around these mini-sections, so that it's the same for all of them. I've also changed the pages in the "Richey Is Dead" mini-section a bit. (29 September 2006)

The Richey Edwards Web Ring - I've decided it was time to delete the web ring. It's been such a headache for me that it didn't seem worth keeping. There have only been three sites on it - this one, and two others - for awhile now, anyway. I've added one of the sites from the ring to the "My Favourite MSP Pages/Sites" page, (the other site was already on the page). (20 September 2006)

E - Friends - I've added a new person to the list, from Europe. (10 September 2006)

Sounds - I've added "Milton Keynes - 19 September 1993 (MSP Supporting Bon Jovi)". The songs are in separate mp3 files. You can download them or listen to them from here. (8 September 2006)

Richey's Favourite Books - I've fixed a few more mistakes in this list that somehow slipped through the last time I was fixing this. There shouldn't be any more mistakes, but if you find any, I'd really appreciate it if you told me! (6 September 2006)

Videos - The "Vanishing of Richey Manic" video has been removed from YouTube, so I've removed the link to it. (1 September 2006)

My Writings About Richey And MSP: London Carling Hammersmith Apollo - 18 April 2005 - I've added a picture of the design on the t-shirt I bought at that concert. (25 August 2006)

E - Friends - I've added a new person to the list, on the "Other (Rest Of The World)" pages. It's another person I'm not so sure about, though. (23 August 2006)

Other Things - I've added a link to an online petition to save the London Astoria, the site of Richey's last shows with the Manics in 1994, and many other concerts. The Astoria has been sold, and there are plans to replace it with shops, flats and offices in time for the 2012 Olympics. (20 August 2006)

My Favourite MSP Pages/Sites - This was formally called, "Links To Related Sites", but I've changed the name to better reflect what it's turned into. I also removed the links to sites for publications which have featured the Manics. (11 August 2006)

My Writings About Richey And MSP: My Manic Street Preachers Things - I've added something that I actually got awhile ago. I also rearranged a few things. (11 August 2006)

FAQ - I've added a new question to the "Events On This Site" category. (4 August 2006)

E - Friends - I've added six new people to the list. I'm not so sure about these people, but I've decided to add them, anyway. They're all on the "Other (Rest Of The World)" pages. I've used the date they originally wrote to me, as the "Date Added" - between November 2004 through August 2005. (30 July 2006)

E - Friends - I fixed a small glitch in the listings. At first, only the first 225 characters of someone's comments were displayed. Now, the whole thing can be shown. (22 July 2006)

E - Friends - Big changes!! I learned just enough MySQL and PHP to be able to re-do the whole section! The listings are now arranged so that the most recently added is first, I separated the Canadian listing from the ones in the US, and I changed the appearance of the pages. (21 July 2006)

Sounds - I've made the same change in the appearance of the pages for the Barcelona, Paris, and London Astoria concerts. (18 July 2006)

Answer To The Word Game and Polls - I've made a change in the appearance of these pages. (18 July 2006)

E - Friends - I've removed three of the people on this list. I tried to email them, but the email addresses I had for them are no longer valid. (17 July 2006)

Sounds - Oops!! I've just been told that the last song, "You Love Us", was missing from "Paris - November 22, 1994 (MSP Supporting Suede)". I don't know how I left that out. Anyway, it's there now! (14 July 2006)

E - Friends - I've added a new person to the list, from the UK. (28 June 2006)

Links To Related Sites - I've added links to two sites. One is a great site about Nicky Wire, (I should have added a link to it long ago). The other link is to another personal account of Richey, from 1998. I can't say definitely who wrote it, but, it seems suspiciously similar to "Anna's View", and what I know about Anna that she didn't put in that. (16 June 2006)

Site - I've upgraded every page on this site from HTML 4.01 to XHTML 1.0! This upgrade shouldn't be noticeable to anyone.
I've also corrected some minor mistakes I discovered on various pages. (14 June 2006)

My Writings About Richey And MSP: What I Think Happened To Richey - Because of some more stupid, immature cowards who have visited this site, (and didn't have the guts to confront me with their complaints about what they thought they read in this - they posted them elsewhere on the web), I have removed three sentences from this writing - sentences which, admittedly, didn't reflect my thoughts anyway, so perhaps they never should have been in this in the first place. (The sentences were two that made up what was the entire second paragraph, and one from what is now the third paragraph.) The rest of this writing is the same as it's always been.
I am so sick and tired of people who don't know how to read intelligently!!!
For the record, let me say here that I never made the allegations about Richey that I've been accused of making. I was simply passing on the speculations/opinions of other people.
Sadly, there are some people who don't understand the difference between allegation and speculation/opinion, and between what I say and what I say other people say. Some people also can't, or won't, think for themselves, and so, they expect me to spoon-feed them answers. But, sometimes, it isn't possible for me to do that, as was the case with the material that I've removed. (11 June 2006)

Games: Meet Manic Street Preachers - I was able to fix this, (it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be), so it's back! I've also changed the navigation for the section. (8 June 2006)

Games: Meet Manic Street Preachers - Oops! I've discovered that there's a problem with this game that I can't fix, so I've removed it for now. (I'm afraid the problem has always been there, but no one told me about it. I thought I checked the game before I put it on this site. Apparently, I hadn't.) I hope to have it available again soon. (7 June 2006)

E - Friends - I've added a new person to the list, from the UK. (15 May 2006)

E - Friends - Another change. I've decided to put all the people from Ireland in with the rest of Europe.
Also, I've added a new person to the list, from the UK. (10 May 2006)

E - Friends - Changes! I've moved the listings around a bit, so that there are 12 on each page, (there had been only 11 on the second page). I've made it so that you can search for an e - friend by location, as well as looking at the whole list. And, I've added a new person to the list who I should have added a few weeks ago. (5 May 2006)

E - Friends - I've done some things to all the listings that will, hopefully, stop the email addresses from being picked up from the pages by "spambots". I'm sorry I didn't do anything earlier. (27 April 2006)

FAQ - I've added a new question to the "Other Things" category. (23 April 2006)

Home - I've decided to delete the RSS feed for this site. It turned out to be too much of a hassle for me. I don't think many people were using it, anyway. I apologise to anyone who found it useful. (21 April 2006)

E - Friends - I've added a new person to the list. (21 April 2006)

My Writings About Richey And MSP: My Manic Street Preachers Things - I've gotten two more goodies! (16 April 2006)

How Long Has It Been? - I've done a bit more tinkering with the appearance of this. I think it's finally exactly the way I want it! (23 March 2006)

How Long Has It Been? - I've changed this from the total number of days Richey's been gone, to the time in years, months, and days. I've wanted to make this change for awhile, but I didn't know how to do it, until now. (21 March 2006)

Articles: (2003 - 2008) - I've added "Author's Novel Idea For Richie" from the Wales on Sunday newspaper, 19 March 2006. (20 March 2006)

E - Friends - I've added a new person to the list. (19 March 2006)

How Long Has It Been? - I've made another behind-the-scenes change to this, so you shouldn't see anything different. But, I figured out a much simpler way to find the number of days Richey's been gone. It was so obvious, I'm ashamed I didn't see it earlier! (19 March 2006)

FAQ - I've updated a question in the "Richey Edwards" category. (10 March 2006)

Videos - I've added links to two videos on the official Manics web site: "From Despair To Bangkok" and "Cardiff Afterlife (a film by Patrick Jones)". (9 March 2006)

My Writings About Richey And MSP: My Reviews Of Books About Manic Street Preachers - I've added the picture of Simon Price that was originally with the interview of him. (You can get to the interview, and the picture, from my review of his book, Everything (A Book About Manic Street Preachers)). (5 March 2006)

Videos - New section! To start, I've put a link to the "Vanishing Of Richey Manic" documentary on YouTube.
And remember - there is an article about this programme, "Richey: The Endless Intrigue", from Melody Maker, 5 October 1996, in the Articles (1996 - 1998) section. (3 March 2006)

How Long Has It Been? - It took me 5½ years, and at least three attempts, but I've finally got this exactly the way I've always wanted it!!! The page should look about the same to you, though, (although it will load faster), since it's a behind-the-scenes change that I've made. (22 February 2006)

E - Friends - I've added a new person to the list. (20 February 2006)

Polls - I've finally posted the results of a poll I conducted back in 2001, "What did you do most on February 1st?" (15 February 2006)

What's New - I've added another page of old update information that I've recreated from several sources. It is no way complete, though. I really think this kind of thing is interesting - either because I'm getting old, or the historian in me is coming out! (13 February 2006)

What's New - From September 2001 to October 2002, I put out a newsletter which contained update information for this site, as well as a few other interesting things. I've added the update info from the newsletters. I think it's interesting to see how this site has evolved. (12 February 2006)

Articles: (1999 - 2001) - I've added "2 Articles About Clothes", (they're on the same page) from nme.com, 15/16 August 2001. (8 February 2006)

My Writings About Richey And MSP: My Reviews Of Books About Manic Street Preachers - I've added a picture of Jenny Watkins-Isnardi, the author of the book, In The Beginning: My Life With The Manic Street Preachers, to the bottom of the page of my review of the book. (4 February 2006)

FAQ - I've added a new question in the "Richey Edwards" category. (2 February 2006)

E - Friends - I've added a new person to the list. (1 February 2006)

About This Site - I've rewritten the old "For The Fifth Anniversary Of This Site" page, updating it, adding to it, and renaming it. The page now has site history, comments from me about the site, and many thank yous. (31 January 2006)

Sounds - I've replaced the last of the interviews with my own mp3 version of the same file. Now, you can download it, or listen to it from my site. (27 January 2006)

Articles: (1993 - 1994) - I've added an mp3 of most of an interview Richey did with a Dutch radio station, November 1994, to the written transcript of the interview. (22 January 2006)

E - Friends - I've added a new person to the list. (21 January 2006)

My Writings About Richey And MSP: My Manic Street Preachers Things - I got yet another goodie, so I've added it to the list. (19 January 2006)

Sounds - A very minor tweak - I've added information about how long each of the interview/news report mp3s are. (17 January 2006)

Philip Larkin Poetry - I've removed this page. It's another one of those things I've decided didn't really belong on this site. (14 January 2006)

Sounds - I've replaced three of the interviews/news reports, which were links to external ram files, with my own mp3 versions of the same files. Now, you can download them, or listen to them from my site. (14 January 2006)

Site - I've made a slight style change to the entire site - I've increased the left and right page margins - which should make all the pages easier to read. (12 January 2006)

My Writings About Richey And MSP: My Manic Street Preachers Things - I got another goodie, so I've added it to the list. (5 January 2006)
