Several sites have been showing up with a 502 gateway error since sometime yesterday:

I’ve notified my host.

I’m also personally experiencing internet connection problems at home – my cable modem refuses to connect since day before yesterday, and I haven’t been able to get through to the ISP yet on the phone. I’m currently using my smart phone’s connection which is by a different provider, but it’s upstream is much slower so re-uploading a single zip takes like 4 hours instead of 20 minutes :/

All these problems are frustrating me :/

Screencaps I made all have the prefix ariane179254_ until about April 21, 2017. Starting today, the prefix is extant_ So if a screencap is named something like ariane179254_TeenWolf_1x07_NightSchool_0068.jpg or extant_TeenWolf_1x07_NightSchool_0068.jpg I made it.

Marta, my co-web at my Rachel Weisz fansite has adopted the site 😀 It’s propably the most complete RW site currently online and I’d have hated to shut it down after all the work gone into it but I also didn’t want to have it anymore. Marta’s been staff there for about 5 years now and she’s done an awesome job, much more than I have for several years now. I’m very happy to turn the site over to her completely 🙂

I’m still on a little bit of on the fence with The Vampire Diaries fansite – I’m not really into the last couple of seasons, season 8 is rather boring but on the other hand there’s only I think 6 episodes left and then the entire series is over, and I still really want to cap season 2 and maybe also re-cap season 3 from Bluray. So I figure I’ll keep it for now. Otherwise I think I’ve reached an acceptable balance – I just couldn’t bring myself to shut down ALL my fansites/screencaps sites or even to adopt them out because they are just too dear to me. But I shut down/adopted out most of them, and it will free up so much of my time that it should help whole lot. For now. That’s not to say it won’t happen in the (near) future, because I really kind of want to shut them all down but for now, there are few that I can’t.

My Sites page has a current listing of all my sites, social media, deviantart etc. accounts.

Here’s the current run down of what’s happening with my sites…

Sites offered for adoption; waiting for reply:

 

Sites adopted out:

  • http://www.oded-fehr.net (adopted by the forum co-mod; I’ll stay on for a while to train her and help with the transition because she’s not familiar with running websites)

I’ll be closing down my fansites/screenapping sites. I’m not sure which ones yet – I kinda want to close down all of them, really.

Reasons I won’t go into here, and also because they’re taking much of my energy (I’m a spoonie and have been for a few years now) and I feel like I want to try and use what energy I have for more creative pursuits such as writing fanfic and making fanart and non-Internet related creative stuff. Fansites are like a work obligation – I know people want and expect updates often and regularly and I feel like I must do that first before anything else or I’ll feel quilty – but then I don’t have any energy left for creative things. I still love doing fansites but I miss being able to do creative things terribly, and that dissatisfaction is bugging me. I kind of want the feeling of not having obligations to update and monitor sites – even if there’s nothing to update with, there’s always the change that the server will blow up or database problems or hacking or whatever. So while most of the time everything goes smoothy and doesn’t require action, it’s always in the back of my mind that anything and everything could blow up any minute. I can’t remember what not-worrying-about-that feels like.

The ISP switch didn’t go as planned 😥 Contacted my new ISP today and heard that propably next week it’ll be activated. So I’ll be mostly offline for several days – the mobile phone’s Internet is really only good on the phone’s and the tablet – on the laptop it craps out. Can’t even read text sites on the laptop. So everything is on hold until I get a working ADSL connection again.

Think I’ll look at this as a vacation…

The following sites have been moved:

I also think my ISP is having some internet connectivity/cache issues – http://www.fans-planet.com & one of my sites that has been transferred there + other sites hosted by them have been unconnectable for me since sometime Tuesday night. Downforeveryone… says they’re up and so do the people I asked to check. In addition, some of my sites still on FSO keep working OK for me (instead of being offline since Monday like they should) and when I check downforeveryone… it says they are down. So I’m thinking my ISP is having issues. BUT – to add to the confusion, apparently some sites including some of mine on FSO really are still working (both for me, downforeveryone…, other people and also apparently Gertie told somebody that some servers take longer to shut down than others? I don’t know).

So the end result? I’m really confused!

The server hosting http://www.viva-bianca.net is currently down – my host is aware of the problem and is working on it.  FIXED!

 

 

I’m going in for my third colonoscopy on Wednesday. Which means that tomorrow, I get to do the fun fun fun empty-and-clean-out-my-bowels-by-drinking-litres-of-a-foul-tasting-medical-concoction-and-have-a-diarrhea-for-the-entire-bloody-evening-and-allthroughhopefully-only-half-the-night- thing that is required so that they can see what’s what. That fun fun fun thing, non-eating (can’t eat until the colonoscopy is done) and the colonoscopy totally wear me out, totally wear me out so that I don’t like to keep my computer on as much as I normally do once I start the fun fun fun thing, and I won’t see the error etc. notices as speedily as I normally do if there are anyso I won’t be updating my sites for the next couple of days, maybe this week at all.

If there’s a server problem or disaster or something, I’ll get to it as fast as I can but propably not until Thursday afternoon/evening my time (GTM+2).
