Hollywood Gala Draws Unprecedented Celebrity Interest
Posted by Chris on 12 August 1999, 22:17 GMT

WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA - To celebrate the opening of its redesigned Web site, the ticalc.org project hosted a glamorous, star-studded gala on Sunset Boulevard Wednesday evening, attracting the patronage of such high-profile stars as George Clooney and Nicole Kidman.

The invitation-only event easily filled the interior of Spago's West Hollywood restaurant, as ticalc.org staff members, convened from as far away as Sweden, rubbed elbows with famous actors and Hollywood persona.

Sean Penn and Steve Guttenberg were reportedly turned away at the door; for those lucky celebrities who made the cut, however, an unforgettable evening awaited. Among the more notable attendees who gathered to get an early glimpse at the improved site were Paul Reubens (better known as "Pee Wee" Herman), Cameron Diaz, Jack Nicholson, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Steve Allen, Michael Stipe, Helen Hunt, Matthew McConaughey, and David Spade.

Leonardo DiCaprio was quoted as saying, "Screw partying, I'm going to a Web site for calculators tonight."

Spike Lee could be seen anxiously reloading the site in his web browser, brow glistening as he eagerly awaited the reincarnation of ticalc.org. He called it one of his "joints," but failed to elaborate.

Gary Coleman took a rare respite from assaulting "hos" to get a look at the new site's compelling features.

All told, the event will surely be classified as one of the year's best, topping even Charlie Sheen's March bash at the Cat and Fiddle.

Rumors ticalc.org staff member Nick Disabato departed with "Ally McBeal" star Calista Flockhart were unconfirmed at press time.

I agree... this new format is powerful, but I don't really like the colors :)

I love the new format...Just, how about making the whole site gray, or the whole site white? When I read the comments and such, it makes it difficult to focus, for some reason. The contrast is pretty, but kind of tough on the eyes. A border around the comments should be enough.

I'd been complaining about the colors for a while. They got rid of yellow, and I stopped. You'll get used to the colors in no time at all. :)

I dont know about you guys, but I think this site is a LOT better than the old site was.

Actually, is there a way to set the colors? It does have soemthing about customizing the front page in the Preferences section...

Well, I believe that when I came here I was at the wrong site. I never knew about this change! I think that this was needed because ticalc wasnt one of the more higher quality sites around but now it looks to me like it has takin a big change.

LOL - i thought i was at the wrong site as well. I was on here this morning (it's night now) and didn't hear anything about this change-over.

Congrats, ti-calc.org staff - looks much classier, IMO!

There's no preference to customize the colors. We'll see what we can do about a different scheme.

If anybody has comments about something OTHER than colors, we'd like to hear those, too. :P

Ticalc.org has changed the layout a few times. The same old thing would be boring. Every time it seems to get more and more professional looking however. This overhaul is a big step.

So this would be "fake news," eh? Well a little humor is in order :)

Anyway, the site looks much better. (e.g. No blue space off to the right.) And there is now something called registration. Still no HTML tags enabled; well I can live w/o those ;)

Certainly is a popular layout these days...

Two thumbs up! I really like the new layout!

However, could this just be a kneejerk reaction to Dim-TI's redesign? Even if it is, it still is a huge improvement over the old design.

No, actually we redid the entire site because the blue on the right side gave my monitor irrevocable burn-in. Now everything looks yellow.......er. :)

--blue.
