What's New?

The Ken Preston Logo

This page is just to let you know about any updates or changes to the site the webmaster has made. Have fun!

September 6, 2003 Since the last update, I've added some video clips to the video gallery. Also, because of a lot of spamming to the guest book, I installed a new guest book program that doesn't post any entries until the webmaster checks them out first. Sorry for the inconvenience, but it was better than having all that garbage in the guestbook! If you have any problems with it, or any glitches in the site's navigation (like if it takes you to the old guest book or a nonexistent page), please let me (the webmaster) or Ken know. :-)
April 7 , 2003 Added a new video segment on guide wraps! Click here to check it out!
February 9, 2003 Added a video segment on how to apply epoxy finish to thread wraps (guides, decorative wraps, etc. - the video uses guides as an example). Click here to go to the video gallery!
January 16, 2003 Put in a new section on bamboo rods! Ken has a lot of things he still wants to add to this section, but this should get you started. Enjoy!
November 28, 2002 Quite a few updates were made since the last posting here. First off, please check out the draft video clip on buying a custom rod, and let me know what you think! Also, please be sure to check out the new place in the Workshop for articles submitted by other rodbuilders to share their tips and techniques. There are also some updates in the links and customer reviews sections. Enjoy!
October 28, 2002 Updated several sections of the Workshop.
September 24, 2002 Checked all the links and got rid of any that weren't functioning, and added a bunch more!
April 21, 2002

Added a page containing a short video of some of Ken's rods in action on the Chesapeake Bay – click here to see them! I also added a page that's the start of a photo gallery of Ken's rods in action - click here!

March 5, 2002 More and more links (in all the sections) were added today. Note that new links go to the top of the page. A lot of new photos will be coming soon, as well!
January 27, 2002 After a long hiatus, added a number of new links and a new "step" in the Workshop on fancy thread work to show what happens when you cut the wrong thread! Also fixed a very vexing problem in the form handler for new rod orders that was allowing folks to send orders in without verifying that their names and e-mail addresses were filled in before submission!
July 25, 2001 Added a link to Reelfishy.Com
June 3, 2001 Updated the e-mail forwarding address information for the New Rod Order Form.
May 19, 2001 Put the new guest book on line. The original one, which happened to be based on MS FrontPage, didn't work so well, and I've taken the entries from it and put it into an archive file. Hopefully the new one (which is PERL based) will work a lot better. Please give it a try!
May 18 , 2001 Today the new version of the site finally went on-line! If anybody encounters any problems or has suggestions to make things better, please contact the webmaster. Thanks!
