Hi, all! We (by which I mean Lizzy Lemon–I’ve just been hauling crates) have been doing some spring cleaning and decorating, and we have a fresh new blog for your enjoyment. Please let us know in the forum if you run into any wet paint or torn upholstery or the like.
The past six years’ worth of posts (plus some 470 of the oldest posts) have been moved to our new home, and the rest will follow. Should you wish to look at anything still in the packing crates, go to Castrocopia.com/blog/.
Thanks so much everyone. We reached our goal in record time. Thank you to everyone who chipped in. And to those who didn’t – no worries. We all give when and where we can. Party time!
So it’s that time of year when the rent comes due… I run Copia on a private server, along with a bunch of other sites that have ended up springing up for fun from time to time. Every year, I toy with the idea of moving back to cheap hosting but I sort of enjoy that we haven’t experienced any significant downtime since we’ve been on this host, and I rather love the fun we have when the mood strikes to host another site, however insanely temporary. Not to mention all the video and other media we’ve been able to stream here. However, I can’t really afford this luxury hosting on my own and so since we’ve been here, I’ve been accepting donations – small donations, from people who have a little extra to spare. If you are struggling with your finances right now, I don’t want you to send me any money. If you have 5 or 10 bucks burning a hole in your pocket, I would certainly appreciate the support. I can always downgrade next year if the funds are running out.
Anyway, all that nonsense to point out the Donate button to the right. The upkeep here is about $500 annually and that’s all I’m looking to fulfill. Once I hit that amount, I’ll take the button down. If you have been here before, you know I will. Sorry that the timing is so crappy. I know that many of you have been contributing to many other more worthy causes lately, and pre-ordering worthy music… but I don’t make monkeys, I just train ’em.
Thanks very much in advance!
I am very happy to announce that REReader has agreed to bring her sleuthing skills to the front page and will be helping keep the blog up to date with the latest and greatest news, videos and other random tidbits. You all already know that she is a constant source of news on the forum and I’m extremely grateful to her for coming aboard.
I hope you’ll join me as I ask her for the first time: “There’s a blog?”
And now back to our regularly scheduled program, already in progress …
