... That's it!

I'm having a major case of restless fingers, so I might actually do something 'round here. I feel like continuing my stories and giving this 'ere site an overhaul. Just because. *shrugs* Yeah, I'm feeling lonely. *glares at ghosts of Rose, heather and everyone else*

So, laterz!

Announcing major site overhaul

*wipes dust off vestholm.webs* Okay, while I'm likely the only person visiting every now and then I'm feeling particularly settlersy after replaying the game, so I'm going to update and overhaul this here website. Just so you know.


Peace!

Yay! The Duck's new computar!

I finally scrambled up enough monies to buy that sweet sweet thing! :D

Granted, shovelling around several hundreds of Gigabytes of stuffs isn't fun, but it's all worth it and I should soon be able to resume everything I was forced to put on hold until I'd have a computer that doesn't require a complete re-install every couple of days.

*does celebratory ducky dance and hands out free cookies to everyone, then affectionately pets super silent and powerful 'Sharkoon' that looks all content and ready for some serious work while old computer falls apart next to it*

Also, I miss Outlook Express as horrible as it is. 0_o

Windows Live Mail, really? And what's up with the Desktop shortcut? I needs to move my left hand to press keys now? But I'm lazy! *shakes fist*


Anyway, now that I'll hopefully be back to business, here's what needs to be done:


  1. Overhaul this website to make it more appealing now that we get the odd new member every few months. Even if no one visits here anymore. *glares at Rose and heatherek*
  2. Overhaul this website. Yes, really. Needs easier to access character profiles and fanon (I cringe at that word) timeline.
  3. WRITE! :D Still no laptop but hey, it won't feel like such a waste on a working computer, I hope.

My stuffs is back!

Yeah, not like you haven't already noticed. NA is up in its original but de-engmushed version, ER currently only sports the first two chapters for rewriting and updating reasons, and A Song of Ice and Fire is being relaunched. At least I now know where to find backups or my stories in case my computer decides to kill my harddrives again.... ;-)

Alas Poor Wiki

Webs is taking down the wiki app on the first of September, in two days time, which shall be met with much rejoicing as that EasyEdit thing was a pain. :) Until I have time to find some sort of alternative, if you want any of the material from the wiki, comment here or pop me a line. I've got the whole thing backed up, although it was a rush job and it doesn't look pretty. *shudders*

EDIT (14-09-11): Well, that was pointless. Wiki's still up, apparently. Since it might go down any day, however, I've created a subforum as a replacement, as per Rockerduck's suggestion. Feel free to move any information over there; I'll try and do some when I have more time. 

Not that anyone pays attention to these updates, but ...

Heather's put up chapters two and three of Time Heals, which are definitely worth a read, and Rocki's put up an updated version of Folly of Flight:D

Yes, it's up. Yes, I wrote it in less than twenty-four hours. Yes, I have a cold. Nothing else could motivate that kind of productivity.
