Well I know where I will be staying! This feels so homely and safe!
A good book and a good coffee, what more can anyone want? xx

Ohhh...now there is a note on the home page too:

Please Note! This site is currently migrating from one server to another. Apologies for any downtime. All issues should be resolved in the next few days. 02/09/08


Well...they maybe can just stick their epiphanies!

If they were just changing servers, a bit of communication wouldn't have gone astray! So now they might find themselves with an almost inactive forum.

If it comes back alive, then I'd like to troll through and paste stuff from some old posts as well. The ones I have in mind would be a few of my replies to members' reviews and responses to some of the threads involving questions and research or preferences for a certain era.

I'm sure after that possible trolling expedition, I'll quit the site and come on home to our lovely new Historical Fiction Online or HFO. I'm with everyone else, safe and sound here.

An old proverb comes to mind: Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.

The old forum is up again, so I just went and fetched my review of Rakossy. As to all the other threads, posting a comment without the context of discussion would be a little odd. Besides, it's fun to talk about all this stuff again!
I also posted an invite to lost members with the new address.

Thanks for the heads-up. I hate it when my message boards disappear without warning.

There's no way I'm going back and leaving this board, we're all here :) . I'm seriously tempted to delete any reviews I've posted, if I'm allowed to.

I've hopefully just deleted The Needle in the Blood from the reviews forum.
I hit the edit button and cleared the screen the saved. Got a message saying I couldn't delete because of wordage so I just wrote 'edited and deleted' in the body of the e-mail and then came out (cus I's supposed to be working!)
Les proz e les vassals
Souvent entre piez de chevals
Kar ja li coard n’I chasront

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

I'm definately staying here as well. Besides, it seems like with the creation of the new forum, things have been re-energized. I haven't had a chance to post much since the new site came up (been out of town), but I'm very excited about our new "community".
