Let's seal up this vault, eh?

 Hello and thank you for visiting!

As you can see if you're an actual person and not a spammer twit, this place hasn't been updated in a LONG while.  I've neglected it wholly.. and the spammers are the main ones who figured that out.

So, let's just shut this place down, shall we?  Yes. Yes, we shall.

I'm going to just say a quick "thank you" to everyone who supported the site as it was for a long while during the early heyday of massively multiplayer online (role playing) games.  Back when Everquest, Asheron's Call and Ultima Online were the main players (yeah, there were TONS of text MUDs and other multiplayer games out at the time, but I was honestly not drawn in by them... for me it was Asheron's Call that done pulled me in.)

The site's been around for a long while, but I just need to shut the door to the hacking and spamming traffic so I can focus on other stuff.  If I revive this site, it needs to be re-built, so the best thing to do with this version is to just lock it up.  I'm going to shut it down as "live" site and archive it into old-school flat files, so bye-bye spammers!  Won't be anything for you to screw around with anymore. Ha!  I... win?

Anyway, thanks again for hopping in.   I'm going to put all the articles I wrote into a giant stream of words, simply sorted by date posted, starting with this post and going back to the beginning (of this version, anyway.  There were others before it, but not sure if their posts made it in here or not... it was a long while ago, Sonny. Get off my lawn! *ahem*... sorry.)

Follow this giant link to unlock the key to archival adventures and see what the heck I was writing about, oh-so-many years ago...

Thank you again for visiting and maybe stop by down the road. Maybe we'll do something interesting someday.





System Upgrades Afoot

 It's been quiet around here lately, as we've been preparing some big changes to both the hardware and software behind  I've been swamped with all the work that needs to be done, so posting has been suffering horribly.

Soon, we'll get back up and posting regularly again --- maybe with some new "faces" around here, too!

(Oh, that reminds me:  you want to write for us?  Apply here for a currently-volunteer position -- volunteer until you show you're committed and then we'll see about appropriate compensation:  Send us info about you and links to writing samples.)

Theme Re-re-re-do

 Again, the theme is changed.  I know it's annoying at times... to me too, trust me.  I'm just not able to spend a lot of time on the theme with all the other stuff going on with the site's rapidly-expanding back end system.

For now, you'll be seeing (as of this writing), a pretty happy, bright theme that is a stark contrast to the previously-stark, bleak theme.  However, I'm really not as happy with such brightness in the long run.  However, this theme's structure just provides too much great functionality to avoid.  I'll use it to get the hang of this theming system (yeah, I know, "blah, blah, blah, techie crap, blah") and then spiff up the colors and such to something I like more.

Thanks for visiting and I apologize for any visual pain I'm causing you while things are in flux.  (Overall, this current theme is pretty, IMO, so I'm sure it's not too bad for you.)

Bring more friends!  More content coming soon.  Promise.

More Site Updating -- Yay.

 I've been slow on updates again lately.  I'm doing another round of big back-end updates to make it easier for me to post stuff.  Hopefully I'm nearing the end of this work so I can get back to posting content instead of fumbling through PHP & CSS code!

Thanks for dropping by -- please do so again soon.  I'll get the content flowing again soon, I promise! 

My Other Site Has Games To Play

[update: A bug in the site had the games & their thumbnails not displaying! Ack! So yeah, if you visited before, you couldn't play any games unless you had an account... sheesh. Sorry 'bout that! You can play now, though, so get to it!!]

In case you're wondering why I haven't been updating lately (this time), I thought I'd show you why. I've been working on my network of sites -- getting them updated and converted and pumped-upified -- and I finally have something to show for it!

Granted, this is nothing pretty to see right now as a whole, so I don't need any flames about that. I've got some help on the way to work on the purty bits. Even so, the main point is that I've added over 6,600 free Flash games for folks to play on another site of mine, Online Game Hounds. Woot!

I know the site's not pretty.. didn't we just go over that?? I think that we did.

Well, I know that's not really technically "massively multiplayer" news... however, I'd argue that the collection of games is "massive" and there will be "multiple players" playing it, often at the same time -- that means the site as a whole is "massively multiplayer", eh?? That too much of a stretch for ya? Eh?

Go have some fun, would you? I hope you enjoy it.


The Thing That Will Be, part xi.2

I'm a slouch and I know it. I've been busy with work and my wife birthed our baby, so that's been nuts, to say the least. I know I haven't posted here in a long while, but that's got to change or you'll all start throwing foul things in my general direction.

... I don't want that.

However, I'm still short on time in general. I'll do my best to throw down some posts more regularly. Yes, I know I've said that before. "Whatevah, whatevah! I'll do what I want!" (No, that quote is not relevant, but it's in my head anyway.)

Thanks for visiting. I'll go drum up some stuff for you to read.




Server outage

Server was down for almost a day... sux0rz!  Should be working okay now.  (Just in case you're curious if you've been wondering if the site got shut down over the past day. :)
