Here’s a summary of activity for two weeks ending May 5, 2019.
I’m procrastinating over moving the website to a new server. The blog and BBS are on their own separate better servers from the website already, but that last time I tried to move the website was a bit of a technical fiasco and didn’t end up happening. It’s such a pain to do, and so many fiddly bits. But, those performance issues are real, and a struggle that is also too real. So, I’ve got to do it. Ugh.
But, I got Postal Exchange and Publication Subscription perks out to ongoing Patrons! This time with zines and tchotchkes from Praeterlimina.
Those are, even now, winding their way to Patrons in four countries across our wide earthy globe!
By the by, as a reminder, May is the month of the anniversary of my birth. I’ll be 50 this year! Also, later this year, in September, will have been 10 years that I’ve been Librarian of Hermetic Library. Wild, and funny, both milestones will occur this year. All I want for my birthday and anniversary is a bunch more Patrons so I can keep doing all this and do more. Become a Patron so I can send you gifts for my birthday!
Lots of new pages and work on old pages on the site, which is pretty much every week, really. You can always check the front page of the site which shows the most recent changes and new pages, or check out the Recent Changes special page for a full list.
Want to join me on this blog and create new art or writing for Hermetic Library? Pitch your Idea.
