Gimme a day or two. I gotta get to bed. In the meantime, hop over to the spiffy new forums and chat away!

(though I do feel obliged to mention -- the favicon that has been gone for the past 3 months for whatever reason is now back. hooray!)

Return from the Dead

Still here. Just sayin'.

(No really. I swear more will happen now that I'm back from Japan.)

Donations are still much appreciated.

New Webhost

09/28/09, 11:06 a.m.

The site is no longer running under Freehostia but Justhost, as of last week. I've bought a two year plan, and Justhost has unlimited hosting space... which means, expect those downloads to come up soon!! I also happen to be in Taiwan now and will soon be in Japan, which means progress on the site will slow drastically, but I might be able to glean more news and updates while I'm in Japan, so stay posted. :)

The new hosting plan, unfortunately, cost me quite a bit of pocket money ($71, to be exact) and while I'm more than happy to contribute (and do admit I went for the cheapest plan I could get), any donations towards the maintenance of the site would also be greatly appreciated.

Breaking News!!

09/08/09, 3:45 p.m.

Our much beloved publisher Kodansha, which as we all know serializes Piano no Mori, has decided to terminate all licenses with American publisher Tokyopop! This news was first broken just over a week ago on MangaBlog, where Tokyopop’s full statement was divulged. None of the current projects will be allowed to continue, and while it looks like Dark Horse will be picking up/reprinting much of the CLAMP and Del Rey has claimed a few titles, the rest will be out of print for now. Deb Aoki has a list on her blog detailing the unfinished titles, also compiled over at Precocious Curmudgeon.

I'm not dead!

I've been away for a while, but rest assured I have not forgotten about this site! All the bits and pieces of content are coming together... painfully... slowly... (but coming together nonetheless!). Like Kai, unfortunately, I play the piano, and I have been preoccupied with that as well as other various aspects of my life. But the site shall not be neglected.

On the flip side, if anyone is interested in helping to look up information and/or generate content, by all means, drop me an email!

Still working on it

07/30/09, 9:04 p.m.

Hello all. I am back from Europe, and will get back to work on this site as soon as possible. :)

And the chickens fly the coop

07/05/09, 6:35 p.m.

So (webmaster speaking here) I'm actually leaving for Europe in another... 9 hours or so. Not leaving leaving per se, but I'm boarding the first car then that will take me to the right bus that will take me to the right airport that will take me to the right plane, etc etc, point being that nine hours from now I will be thoroughly vanished. For two weeks.

Point being that, as a webmaster, I really shouldn't've started this site a day before my departure, because who knows if I'll remember to pick up on this project when I return.

Point being that, as a human being, I really shouldn't've spent the past 5-6 hours building this website instead of packing.

Love all around. See you all in two weeks, if I remember to come back! (I may also be on an additional trip to Italy, so if I'm not back immediately following the 20th, sit tight a little while and wait 'til August. And if I'm still not back then, you can probably give up.)

All right!

07/05/09, 5:01 p.m.

The site is officially up and running! woooooooooooot.
