To my great relief, the renewals/transfers of crystalfires.net and wraithfans.com went well and in fact, has completed already according to Namecheap 😀 So no worries! Nothing’s going offline 😀
I never ever though I would say this about Sanctuary:
God this episode, 3.13 One Night, was stupid – some of the worst I’ve ever seen on any kind of screen, big or small 🙁
(Spoilers behind the cut!)
It’s that time of year again – weather turns to spring and summer, and I whine about it. It’s been very springy the last two weeks or so, weather is almost hot in the sun but still cold in the shade, and I got the flu to prove it 🙁 And as always in the spring and summer when the sun shines, the inside temperature of my appartment goes up unbearably – it’s already gone up to 27 degrees Celcius… I fucking HATE spring and summer.
Anyway, I I said I got the flu and that pushes my end of hiatus a bit – I had planned to officially come ouf of hiatus in the beginning of May, but now I’m officially pushing it at least mid-May. I’m not going to do anything except script updates (if there are any) until this stupid flu is completely over.
And the last bit of news… I renamed today my LJ account nekhbet_ariane to my original account name ariane179254 – after the first rush of excitment I never really liked the other name, and what I should’ve done when I quit LJ as personal site was delete all posts & everything on ariane179254 and just keep that name. I kept all the connections/posts/whatever between the new name and the old name, so the change should be seamless and nothing gets lost/deleted etc.
Looks like my Bluray-rom is failing 🙁 It doesn’t read most CD/DVD/Bluray discs anymore, and the ones that it does read, it takes a longer than usually and with noise 🙁
I dug up my old X-Box360 HD DVD player from storage, which thankfully still works okay so at least I’m not shit out of luck when it comes to playing/ripping CDs and DVDs. I’m only shit out of luck when it comes the Bluray discs though. Good thing I have most of my Bluray discs backed up on external hard drives, but until I can afford to buy an external Bluray player (which won’t happen until I get a job or the prices come down a lot)… it does present a problem for all new Bluray movies/tv series I might want to rent/buy/get from the library and watch in the meantime. Oh, and I won’t be burning any DVDs either, assumably. Haven’t tested that yet.
Luckily it’s only the Bluray-rom hardware. I can still watch and play with Blurays on my hard drive like normal 🙂
Why is it that they can’t make CD/DVD and now Bluray-roms that doesn’t stop working after a year or two? I’ve had problems with all the CD/DVD-roms in all my computers, resulting in me buy external ones when the one that came with the computer stopped working, and I had hoped Bluray-rom would be different. I guess not.
Netfirms, where I bought most of my domains, have finished migrating my account(s) to their new Control Panel platform today. The e-mail I got says that the domain DNS will automatically be pointed to the new platform and I don’t know what that means in my case – I don’t host any site with them, only the domains, and the DNS points to fan-sites.org where my sites are hosted. I don’t know if Netfirms is going change DNS point to their platform even when the site isn’t hosted with Netfirms, or whether the original DNS remains in effect (which frankly is bad customer service if it doesn’t). I just checked my domains on their Admin Panel, and seems the informations aren’t there at all. So I guess it’s going to take some time for all the DNS, domain privacy etc. settings to show up in the new Admin Panel.
So this is a heads-up: if my sites go offline in the next few days, don’t worry! I’ll be keeping an eye everything, and make any changes as necessary.
