Babies Day

Folks, tomorrow June 14th is Babies Day. We’re asking all you Hazzardites with some spare change to be a hero on Babies Day and make a donation, whatever you can afford, to the March of Dimes. The March of Dimes is an organization leading the fight to save babies from the problems of prematurity, birth defects, and low birthweight. They provide research, community outreach, and education in many communities to help give babies a fighting chance. They rely on donations from folks like you to accomplish their mission. They will get matching funds for the first $250,000 donated tomorrow from corporate sponsors. Their goal is to raise $1 million. So please, donate whatever you can tomorrow. Just click the March of Dimes links or banners above to donate. Thanks!
In technical news…
Well, the move didn’t happen last night. The uploads to the new server kept failing. The good news, however, is that I was able to patch the forums. They are available now and will be until the weekend when I attempt the move again.
Thanks for your patience.

Server Update

Time for Plan C! I had trouble downloading the database and files for the website yesterday, so the move will take longer than anticipated. I was, however, able to finally download the forum patch yesterday. Yay! I will attempt to download the files and database from the site again tonight. If that does not go well, I’ll postpone the move until the weekend and just patch the forums. If this patch goes like any other patch I’ve done, things might be wonky for a bit. So, if the forums aren’t acting right, please don’t post while I try to fix things. I will still be moving the site in order to address the gallery and other technical issues. Whether that will be tonight or this weekend remains to be seen. Regardless of when the move is, the forums will be down again during the move. Continue to watch this space for news of what’s going on. I’ll try to keep you all as informed as possible. Thanks for your patience.
Stay tuned!

Musical Servers

Folks, HazzardNet is moving servers again. It has come to light that folks can’t upload pictures to the gallery. After investigating, it appears that some imaging software we need on the server isn’t there. On talking to tech support, they won’t load it for me. So, it’s back to our previous web host so we can get the gallery running again for uploads of all those great DukesFest photos you took.
Please excuse our mess in the meantime.

Message Boards Down

The message boards are currently down. We received a notice that a patch was available for the software, but have been unable to download it. To prevent security holes in the site, we are leaving the forums down until they can be patched, which will hopefully be tonight or tomorrow. Your understanding is appreciated.
We also received a notice that other software this site runs on has a security hole that has caused many sites running it to be hacked. I believe the code I added to the software last night has closed the security hole, but I will be transitioning away from the use of that software on this site, as it is no longer supported by the developer. Hopefully, the transition will be seemless and there will be no downtime.
Again, sorry for any inconvenience.

Back From DukesFest 2006

We’re back from DukesFest. Stay tuned for a full report and pictures and video!
It’s short notice, but I thought I’d mention that James Best will be appearing at the Lanier Speedway in Braselton, GA on June 10th for Dukes of Hazzard Night there. You can find more information at:


As noted below, two thirds of the HNet staff is currently in Nashville gearing up for DUKESFEST! Meanwhile, us poor unfortuante saps that are left behind must make do. LOL. BUT I’m looking to host a chat Saturday night here at the HNet Chat Room (come on in via the Forums) starting at 8pm! So stop on by and we’ll have ourselves some fun despite ourselves!

Just a few things I wanted to report on:

Dukes Post a Strong Showing in Poll!!

The Dukes of Hazzard made the poll for May at #18!! And for the month of May, listed not the top ten, but the top twenty-five shows for the month! Awesome job y’all!

Now we’re into June! Let’s see if we can beat the #18 slot!

Dukes of Hazzard Prequel??!?!

The Internet Movie Database reported recently that there’s a Dukes Prequel in the works and that Kristin Cavallari of Laguna Beach fame is slated to play Daisy Duke. Other rumblings have been floating around the internet, many of which have been found and shared in our forums. This prequel apparently is a straight to DVD release. Based on the rumours and tidbits our forums members have found it sounds like it’s going to be a straight to the trash bin type film.

HNet Forums Big Screen Dukes Movie Topic


John Schneider will be starring in 42nd Street at the Pittsburg Civic Light Opera, running from July 4th through the 16th!

Back in April, John was Wellington, New Zealand for the Armageddon Pulp Culture Expo. New Zealand’s TVOne did an interview with him. Check out the video here:

One final note, our Fanfiction section has been updated for June!


HazzardNet Gang at DukesFest

Hey y’all, two thirds of the HazzardNet staff will be at DukesFest this weekend. Hope to see some of the HazzardNet regulars there. If you wanna post some of your pictures of DukesFest on HazzardNet, contact us through the contact page and we’ll reply with an email address you can send ’em to. For the time bein’, the gallery page is out of order, but we’ll fix it when we get back.
Nashville, here we come!

CMT Top 20 Country Comedies

This is a little late, but we’ve been busy getting ready for DukesFest.
Did any of you see the CMT special Top 20 Country Comedies? Well, I was delighted to see that Dukes of Hazzard came in fourth. However, that delight was shortlived, as they neglected to even mention the people who gave the show such great comedy, Sorrell Booke and Jimmie Best. Jimmie and Sorrell’s chemistry together and comedic timing brought smiles to the faces of fans every week. Sometimes they were over the top. Sometimes they were more subtle. But some of the best comedic moments in the show were bound to involve them. How CMT could overlook that is beyond me.
If any of you saw the special and noticed the same omission I did, I urge you to write to CMT and voice your displeasure with this oversight. Since the show is over and done with, there’s not much they can do now to right this. However, they can always produce more specials that feature the Dukes cast. I, for one, would like to see a special about comedy duos that perhaps could feature Jimmie and Sorrell. If you have your own ideas, please write CMT and let them know. Keep it nice, folks. We Dukes fans have a reputation to uphold 🙂

Upgrading the Chatroom

We’re in the process of integrating upgraded chatrooms into the forums. The chatroom has moved from its regular spot to here. Once we’re done, you’ll be able to access the chatrooms right from the forums. You’ll even be able to see if fellow Dukes of Hazzard fans are in the chatroom without even entering them. Cool, eh? If you do check out the new chatrooms, please drop us a line and let us know what you think!
For those of you voting at, the chatroom would be a great place to coordinate our efforts. *hint hint* We’re making good progress, but we have a long way to go. So get over to and vote for the Dukes of Hazzard!

Yet Another Voting Update

Dukes of Hazzard is in 17th place and holding at the TeaVee vote. Those of you who haven’t voted yet, get over there and vote positive for Dukes of Hazzard every 5 minutes! Let’s make Dukes #1!
