Changes + Maybe Deleting Sites

Update…

March 31, 2019I’ve decided to let crystalfires.net expire on May 11, 2019 and delete the site when it does. Things I’ll keep will be transferred to my creative site https://www.so-obsessed.com. https://gallery.crystalfires.net will not be preserved, all the screencaps there will be unavailable once the domain has expired so if there’s anything there you want, get it now!

I’m also leaning towards deleting https://www.vampirediaries.info, https://www.xenacentral.net and https://www.star-trek.info soon, but haven’t made a final decision yet. If there’s anything there you want, get it now!

 

I feeling strongly again like I want to reduce my sites… really, really want to have fewer of them right now again… I’ve been feeling like this on and off for the past several years, which has lead to me deleting many of my sites. In an effort not to make hasty decisions right now, there’s going to be a few changes around here:

In an effort to lessen my work load I’m going to stop posting screencaps updates from my other sites here, effective immediately. To clean things up, I’ve removed the old screencaps posts.

In the future, I’ll only post an update about the screencaps uploaded to https://gallery.crystalfires.net here, and if I’m planning on posting whole season/series, I might make that announcement once it’s complete. So check out https://gallery.crystalfires.net and my other individual sites if you want to know the updates.

I might not post all screencaps updates to my Dreamwidth. I will propably post them to my Tumblr, but no promises. So basically, bookmark the site URLs you’re interested in and check out those sites when you want to know if there’s been any updates.

Also be aware that I’m really feeling like deleting https://gallery.crystalfires.net so if there’s anything uploaded there you want, get it ASAP. I’m not promising it’ll stay up. The domain crystalfires.net will expire on May 11 – I may or may not renew it. If I don’t, things I’ll keep will be transferred to my creative site https://www.so-obsessed.com

Other sites in the danger zone: https://www.vampirediaries.info, https://www.xenacentral.net, https://www.star-trek.info and maybe https://www.zahn-mcclarnon.net I love all these sites would be sad to lose them, but like I said I’m strongly feeling like I want to reduce the number of sites I’m responsible for. And TVD, Xena and Star Trek sites are huge each, so they take up a lot of my mental energy due to having to worry about them due to sheer size.

Going In For A Procedure – Delay Fixing Possible Site Problems

Today’s been awful, had a terrible migraine that didn’t want to go away and I’m still worried that it might come back during the night or tomorrow. I’m worried because I’m going to have a routine colonoscopy again on Wednesday (first time in 4 years!), and I need to do the fun fun fun! “empty the bowels” prep tomorrow. Which means drinking about 4,5-6 litres of liquids which I think I won’t be able to do, or at least, won’t be able to keep down if the stupid migraine is on :/

This colonoscopy is just to see what’s going on because my symptoms have been stable the past several years and I haven’t needed to have one done because bloodwork also looked good. Bloodwork still looks good, but due to increased chance of colon cancer with Crohn’s Disease patients, colonoscopies need to be done at regular intervals even when symptoms or bloodwork don’t necessarily warrant it.

The prep and the colonoscopy itself usually wipes me out, so I won’t be online much (or at all) tomorrow and Wednesday. If there are any problems with the sites, I’ll get on it ASAP but propably not before Thursday.

Updating DNS

Some of my sites were using outdated name servers and DNS stopped resolving today. I’ve updated them and the sites will start resolving again as soon as the updated DNS propagates everywhere. Shouldn’t take more than 24 hours, max.

Slow Server

I’m sorry for the slowness of several of my sites recently. It’s due to the server being busy because of so many busy sites. My host will be adding two new servers, and will move many sites from the current server to the new ones to ease server load. This should make all sites faster again. They’ll be working on this the next several days, including the weekend.

I don’t know yet whether my sites will be moved or not. I’ll let you know once I know. Some sites, such the Xena and The Vampire Diaries sites, the gallery is so slow when I try to add picsย  that it’s next to impossible to do it until it’s working better. So no updates at least on those particularly slow galleries until the server load eases.
