July 15, 2010:

A technical issue that was preventing me to repair a broken image linkon my home page was solved, and I began the process of continuing the migration of pages to my TomCubbage.com server. I also decided to divide my work between newer post-2005 images and editing, and my imaging covering the 1955-2005 period.

December 1, 2005:

The migration of pages from Fine-Art.com to TomCubbage.com ended as my intersts shifted and I began a period of freelancing and posting images to other photography forums and figure-photo sites.

September 15, 2004:

After registering the TomCubbage.com domain name, I began migrating the some 40 Mb's of pages and images to a new server at Photogserver.net. I estimate that it will take me several weeks to get all the pages moved and the new links set and tested.

January 31, 2002:

Today I received a note from the Fine-Art.Com net administrator that the page views per month for this virtual gallery has now exceeded 100,000. I am very pleased to hear that this virtual gallery has become so popular with US and foreign viewers. In the early days I had a page counter on the home page, but took it off after the total hits reached 10,000. Over the years I have learned that the really important count is the number of e-mails I get from viewers who view the site, or particular pages, and then take the time to tell me what they think of my work. 

November 24, 2001:
