October 22, 2002
Received approval by thefanlistings.org to make this fanlisting. Was overjoyed. Decided on the name "Live and Learn" after viewing a list of MacGyver episode titles.

October 23 - November 6, 2002
Worked on the layout, content, etc.

Added the finishing touches and opened the site. Linked to it from my other sites and notified the fanlistings that it's up.

A milestone: the fanlist reached 50 members!

The new layout for the site is *finally* posted. That's right - no more frames. I plan to update the fan list tomorrow evening; until then, please excuse any broken links that you find.

September 13, 2003
I've had a new layout ready for a while, but I was waiting to post it. Finally I did - I really like it, and I hope you all do as well. Please let me know if it looks weird in your browser or if you find broken links. Thanks!
