Server Upgrade On Friday, July 1st

My host Webhosthpython will be upgrading the server my account is on Friday (July 1, 2022) to a new, more powerful one:

There will be very minimal downtime. We will migrate all of the accounts over ourselves to the new machine. When the migration has been completed, this is where the downtime will occur and last about 5 minutes while we swap the IPs out and activate the new server while powering down the old one. The exact time this will occur unfortunately is unknown since it depends on when the migration is done.

So if you notice any of my sites being down on Friday, this is probably the reason and it’ll be back up ASAP!

I Heart Jeri Ryan (jeri-ryan.com) Merger

You may have noticed that I heart Jeri Ryan (https://www.jeri-ryan.com) now redirects here. Claudia, the owner, has closed I Heart Jeri Ryan due to a personal loss that took the joy of having the site. She has kindly offered her site’s content to me because she has some things that I don’t, and also for the time being has directed the domain here. I’ll be updating with Claudia’s stuff over the long while.

Host Trouble??

So, appears my host is having some sort of problems. Their client area(s) have been showing a database error and a maintenance error at least for about a week now, meaning I can’t pay my February bill. Also haven’t gotten the e-mail that there is February bill waiting to be paid, or the usual reminders before the due date (today). So. The other hostees have the same problems. I don’t know what’s going on, and they aren’t communicating. I DM’d them on Twitter a couple of days ago, but no reply.

If my sites disappear/go offline/whatever unexpectedly, it’ll probably be related to this. I hope I won’t need to find a new host because honestly, I’m not sure I’d resurrect any other sites than this one (https://www.so-obsessed.com) and Jeri Ryan. Fingers crossed!!!!

If the worst happens and my sites disappear and I need to find a new host, I’ll be posting status updates to my DW https://intothisshadow.dreamwidth.org and my Tumblr https://intothisshadow.tumblr.com as well as my Pillowfort https://www.pillowfort.social/intothisshadow Be sure to bookmark at least one of these in case you need it later. DW is probably the easiest to find the newest site news post – I can make a sticky post there which will be always the first.

My host has been having some problems recently, but nothing that affected me until now.

Gallery Additions + Fanfic

Added a bunch of photos from Jeri attending the official Star Trek convention and the opening night of “Falsettos” earlier this year:

Easy way to see these new additions is to browse by date.

eFiction which powered the fanfic section is really old now and isn’t being actively maintained anymore, so for security reasons I imported the two fanfics hosted there here to WordPress and deleted the eFiction installation. You can still access the fanfic by clicking on the link in the top menu.
