End of an era – eFiction Up For Adoption

It’s happened what I’ve been low key worried about for years – the current developers of eFiction have put the whole project and website up for adoption. If someone doesn’t take over the whole project, the entire project will be gone forever starting New Year.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed somebody takes it over but I’m not counting on it – all the other fanfic archive software projects have died 🙁 except for AO3.

Good thing I started the process over moving my two Oded Fehr fanfic archives over to AO3 at the start of this year, even though it’s been delayed by COVID-19. Guess I should contact them about it to see when I can start importing stories.

Xena Site About To Shutdown

Xenacentral.net domain will expire sometime on Friday – that’s day after tomorrow! Can’t believe it. I’m both feeling a kind of terror, as well as terribly excited! Terror because I’ve had the site for something like 16 years, I think, in one form of another. I love the series as much as ever, and still follow Lucy Lawless’s career so whenever I see her in something new, I get the urge to watch some Xena again, and when I do that I want the site to exist. The cons just started to outweigh the pros.

I wonder if there’ll ever be a Xena release in HD, on Bluray.  I will cap it from Bluray if there ever is one. I very much wish there will be!

Host Trouble??

So, appears my host is having some sort of problems. Their client area(s) have been showing a database error and a maintenance error at least for about a week now, meaning I can’t pay my February bill. Also haven’t gotten the e-mail that there is February bill waiting to be paid, or the usual reminders before the due date (today). So. The other hostees have the same problems. I don’t know what’s going on, and they aren’t communicating. I DM’d them on Twitter a couple of days ago, but no reply.

If my sites disappear/go offline/whatever unexpectedly, it’ll probably be related to this. I hope I won’t need to find a new host because honestly, I’m not sure I’d resurrect any other sites than this one (https://www.so-obsessed.com) and Jeri Ryan. Fingers crossed!!!!

If the worst happens and my sites disappear and I need to find a new host, I’ll be posting status updates to my DW https://intothisshadow.dreamwidth.org and my Tumblr https://intothisshadow.tumblr.com as well as my Pillowfort https://www.pillowfort.social/intothisshadow Be sure to bookmark at least one of these in case you need it later. DW is probably the easiest to find the newest site news post – I can make a sticky post there which will be always the first.

My host has been having some problems recently, but nothing that affected me until now.
