It's a bitter-sweet day for the Future Love Paradise. Since the web site was conceived
in 1994, it has grown from humble beginnings. Starting out from its HTML1.0 origins of
grey backgrounds and everything left-aligned, living on the Yale University account
of fellow Seal fan Ari Edelson, the site has bloomed. Thanks to the help of other
fans from around the globe, the Future Love Paradise has developed into a huge site
containing almost everything a Seal fan could hope to discover.
It has even undergone a couple of face lifts, the last being the addition of a better
navigation system and the 'Fly Like An Eagle' welcome page it currently boasts.
With the release of Seal's new album almost upon us, I decided it was time FLP was
have been laid out, and much of the site has been converted. However, one things is set to
scupper the success the new look FLP - namely, your enthusiasm for Seal.
The web space FLP occupies is part of my standard dial-up account. As you might expect
from such a service, there are limitations. Thanks to the success of the FLP web site,
my bandwidth limit has been breached massively in the last 7 days, no doubt due to the
increasing interest in the new album. The has meant that Future Love Paradise
has been temporarily moved to the 'Resource Limited' server - basically, the response
time has increased and data transfer speeds have dropped hugely.
This limitation will put something of a damper on the launch of the new look FLP, but
please bear with me. I have put into action some contingency plans, hence the restructuring
of the news page, and hopefully the site will return to it former speed by next month.
Thanks for your ongoing support, your emails are always gratefully received - even if
I don't manage to reply to them all.
One day I'll be able to afford that dedicated server.
Love & Life,
