We here at SaruDama have been working hard (?) to improve your web surfing experience, so here are a few site upgrades you may be interested in:
1. You now (once again) have the ability to comment on reviews and posts, so let's hear your feedback!
2. I've (finally!) converted all of our 320 plus reviews into the new database along with meta data (such as year, director, categories and tags) to each. This allows for a much faster and efficient perusal of the site. For example, you can now click on the director's name on any review to access a list of all his/her films we have reviewed on SaruDama.
3. Our movie review index has been updated and enhanced. In addition to year and director, you can now search by genre and sub-genre. I've also streamlined the search engine to speed up search results.
4. The site's own Search function is now fully operational, meaning it will search through and return matching results from ALL of SaruDama's content.
5. I've upgraded the site to MT 4.23 in the hopes of increasing the site's speed and felxibility. So far so good.
6. I will be limiting the amount of Japanese unicode in my posts. It will result in a loss of some useful info (for those of you who read Japanese) but ensures that the browsers of most/all site visitors will be able to successfully render the web pages.
7. And lastly, I've noticed that some of the pages take a little too long to load due to the size of the logo images I am using. I will be optimizing these in the near future, so hopefully you will see a quicker response time.
That's it for now. As always, thanks for your interest in the site. I hope you find it all useful.
