Summary for the week ending Jan 1, 2017

Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending January 1st, 2017.

Well, I did it. Shortly after last week’s summary where I wondered about moving the development site into production, I did just that. The new site is up! I’ve been working on getting the most egregious snafus fixed, and so forth, but there it is all shiny and new. Be sure to check it out!

Also, you know, if you want to help with the site, get in touch and let me know what you’re interested in doing. There’s still plenty to work on getting some stupid import cruft removed. And, I’m still figuring out how to do some of the old pages that had special formatting on them work on the new site.

Last night I also started migrating the pages from Hermeneuticon site into the new main site. So, you’ll now find that Hermeneuticon wiki, Metadata, Concordance, and Serapeion projects are all on the main site. Eventually, I expect I’ll redirect everything from Hermeneuticon site toward the main site. The only thing that’s not now included on the main site is the Aleister Crowley Reference Desk … and, I’m not sure what to do about that yet.

There’s also lots of topical collections and subject matter that the library doesn’t yet cover. I mean, really, why isn’t there a section on Chaos Magick, TOPY, Discordianism, and so on? Just not enough time in the day to cover everything, I suppose. But, there’s lots of opportunity for someone to help out by creating new sections! (And, there’s already a few brand new sections that I was working on at the speculative site which are now up. I’ll probably post about each over the next week so you’ll see those in the next summary!)

So, again, if you or someone you know is interested in helping with the site, especially if you’re familiar with wiki syntax or, even better, Dokuwiki specifically, let me know!

Oh, and, one more thing! There’s a new album available over on CD Baby: The Hermetic Library Anthology Album – Magick, Music and Ritual 12 by Various Artists! Consider heading on over and writing a review for the album there, if you’d like to help people find it and get an idea how awesome it is. Huzzah!

In closing this week’s summary, I’m compelled to ask: if Hermetic Library isn’t worth $1/mo, why are you reading this? Become a Patron and help the library!
