Made this today 🙂
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!
Just a friendly reminder that Xena Central will shut down on February 28th when the domain expires – so there’s only about 1,5 weeks left to download everything you want off the site!
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.
I’m closing my Xena site https://www.xenacentral.net down when the domain expires on February 28, 2020.

Getting errors all of a sudden when trying to add pics to the Star Trek DS9 gallery… I’m working to fix it! The gallery might have to go offline for a bit.
I’ve made the decision – I will close https://www.thevampirediaries.info on July 10, 2019 when the domain expires. See the previous post for reasons why.
I’m giving blanket permission to upload the stuff at https://www.thevampirediaries.info to other sites, on the condition that you credit Ariane of so-obsessed.com as the source.
Details for reasons why are in a previous post:
EDIT – this is fixed!
Some sites are experiences 500 Internal Server Error:
My host posted on Twitter that there was a short downtime not 30 minutes ago, and that the server didn’t recover/restart automatically. I’m going to wait a bit and see if the issue is fixed; if not, I’ll open a support ticket. I’ll update this post when everything’s working again.
I might be closing my The Vampire Diaries site when the domain expires on July 10, 2019. I’m seriously leaning in that direction.
It’s a big site, takes up a lot of my mental energy due to having to worry about it due to sheer size – and I do know already that if there’s another server and/or host disaster in which I might lose some/all content, or have to transfer my sites to yet another host… I no longer have the will or the energy to do all that work yet again with this particular site.
I haven’t yet made the final decision. I still like having this site (even if I don’t love it anymore) so it’s a hard one to make. I also kind of hate the thought of closing the site down so soon after completing the gallery 🙁 So I’m also considering the option of renewing the domain for one more year and then closing down in a year if I still feel like that.
Anyway, that what’s going on with me. Wanted to give you a heads-up just in case I end up not renewing, so you’d have as much time as possible to download everything you from here.
I’d also be open to adoption – if you want to adopt my TVD site, I’d be happy to give it to you along with the domain name. Just get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll talk.
