RIP Raccoon's Bookshelf

A friend of mine has finally thrown in the towel. The Raccoon's Bookshelf, a great repository of furry writing, has been shut down. The owner of the site felt it wasn't worth it to continue maintaining it.

I'm sure I'm not alone when I say this was a sad day for the furry writer's community as a whole.

Had I known this was coming, I would have taken over hosting the Bookshelf on my site, since I have tons of webspace that is not being utilized.

Goodbye Raccoon's Bookshelf; we will miss your presence.

I'm A HAM Radio Operator Now!!

Well, went to take the HAM radio exam yesterday.

Passed Technician, so I could take the General license test for free. Passed that, so I could take the Amateur Extra test for free. Passed that, with no study, so now I'm a top level HAM operator! Wow!

Once I have my call sign in ten days or so, I can talk around the world if I want to.

"Scribe" should return this Thurday with a new chapter.

CL for now,

Well, it's a sad day but all good things must end.

Epilogue 1, "First Day And Some Unexpected News"

This is not to say, no more of Torvald and Victoria, I will pen some short stories for them from time to time. It is, however, time to start on "Scribe", my latest story arc.

Happy Independence Day!

To all of my family and friends, wishing you all a Happy 4th of July!

Having served in our nations' armed forces, the 4th of July has a very special meaning for me. Our forefathers fought for our independence and I have served to continue our freedom. I am proud every time I see a soldier in uniform.

Hoping you all have a great 4th,

Another Update

Just a short-ish update;

I've been dealing with this new laptop for a bit and work has been kicking my hiney real hard. So far, it's been a 'relatively' smooth transition to Window$ 7, now that I've done some 'tweaking to the (L)user interface.

I have had a few programs not work or fail to install, but I think that was to be expected. Most depressing was the failure of my Visioneer 9420 scanner to install. It works with everything up to Vista but 7 is enough of a different animal to not accept my scanner.

On the up side, it found my networked HP ink jet with no problems. Go figure. Windows XP fought me tooth and nail to configure it. My old laptop still doesn't like that printer, taking as long as ten minutes to send a print job to the printer.

Anyway, "Redemption" Chapter 24 might be ready by this weekend but don't hold your breath. I have family coming in this week so any writing will be put on hold once they arrive. I'm sure you will all understand this stance.

So, we might buy an Epson workforce 7510 ink jet for the house. It scans 11" X 17" and prints 13" X 19". What a beast. It all hinges on finding a place for it to live other than the closet, since it will do wireless networking.

Take care all!

Pending Burnout

Hey All -

Just to let you know, just as my close friend Alaug has burned out, so have I. I cannot bring myself to write more "Redemption" at this point. Chapter 10 has languished for more than a month with no more than a few paragraphs completed.

I have another story in mind, but it does not have the Immortal Couple in it. All I can share at the moment is that it will be a post-apocalyptic tome, set in the near future and there will be humans and others.

It will be a while before you see this new story, whose working title is "Scribe". I hope you all understand that just like my friend, I can't seem to write that story anymore. I have hit not just a wall, but the side of a very tall cliff.

I'm not gone, just on hiatus.

Something To Ponder

Okay, so I received this email and felt obligated to share it with my 'net friends.

(paste)

RE: kellanmeigh.com

Please forgive the interruption. One of the members of my staff found your site, and I think it may be a good match for Sosbuzz. Sosbuzz is a moderated marketplace search engine where members look for products and services. We're experiencing exponential growth in traffic, and our members may be interested in your offering. Just a bit about us (you can read more on our site below). We're the search engine that filed the patent for the Pay-After-Confirmed-Sale model, which eliminates the entire risk in advertising, as it costs businesses nothing up-front to advertise their products and services, and get the traffic they need. In our model, businesses, even service-based businesses, get to advertise at no charge until AFTER we get them a confirmed sale. Additionally, when our members make a purchase from a seller on Sosbuzz, we donate 25% of our proceeds to the Causes that our members select. This patent-pending invoicing and search model has already started to turn traditional search advertising on its head, as it benefits all parties concerned.

For more details and to register, please visit the page below:

Do not miss the traffic we can drive to your site. I encourage you to register your site today. Please feel free to reply back with any questions you may have.

(/paste)

so, I will now post my reply.

(post)

Mr. Sosikian,

After having received your email concerning your business, I read it closely a few times before I decided to reply.

I am flattered that one of your staff had seen fit to bring my website to your attention. I will admit that Sosbuzz might actually drive traffic to my website, but . . .

As you might surmise by actually surfing my website, I do not sell a thing. Nothing. Nada. Zip. I'm not sure what your staffer saw in my site but I can tell you, it wasn't products or services for sale. I would almost suspect this person of just going to a site, maybe a bulletin board or forum and copying the links from that site to submit to you. I would doubly-so suspect that if that person worked for an SEO organization at some time.

So, being listed on Sosbuzz would actually be a waste of time for the both of us. I have nothing to sell, therefore my listing would be a dead end for you. In the meantime, your site would look bad for listing a site that obviously does not sell anything on the 'net.

I suggest you talk with the individual that suggested my site and explain to them, a site needs to sell a product or service to be of any use to your company. As far as I'm concerned that individual will cost you time and money that could be better spent elsewhere. If it were my business, I would be sending that person down the road with their last check right about now.

I own several other sites that do not sell products or services so I will be interested to see if you make the same offer to those 'webmasters'.

Good day,

Kellan

(/post)

As you can see, Mr. Sosikian probably gleaned my website from my posts on a forum. It's very obvious that he (or his alleged staffer) never visited my site. Not surprising, probably an SEO taking things to a new level.

I get the offers all the time for 'reciprocal links' where th person puts your links on a page that is not found on the website's main page, but expecting you to put their link front and center. I think this guy is just a better version of the same scam.

Hope you all got a good giggle from this.

Slainte!

What's Up With This?

Sorry about the rant but this is just something I have to do to get this off my chest.

A forum that I haunt(?), uses Cloudflare , a proxy server of sorts that supposedly protects your website and speeds up performance. Now just to clarify, i do not own, admin nor mod the board in question.

What I am fed up with is the various "Error Pages" that I see when trying to access that board. At least twice a week, I am greeted with the classic "Go Away, Not Available, Come Back Later" page. Generally that means give it up for the evening because the site isn't coming back until tomorrow. Doesn't look like Cloudflare improves things if you ask me. If anything, access to that board is worse now that Cloudflare is being used.

Anyway, sorry for the rant. It just makes it so hard to communicate with the folks that are reading my stories.

Redemption Chapter 05 and a health update

Well, here it is

"Redemption" chapter 05 

It's not the best chapter I have ever hacked out but I think it serves well for the needed story progression.

Enjoy!

By the way, I've been diagnosed with an 8 millimeter kidney stone that will have to be broken up to be able to pass it out of my system. This one's too large to pass by itself, according to the doctor that treated me in the emergency room last Friday night. The problem is, I don't know if I can work with this, since I need to take pain meds (oxycodone) every 4 hours. Well, I'll try going to work tomorrow and see how it works out. I won't be seen by the Urologist until the first of February. I know, insane, isn't it?
