The Here And Now
morgandawn
This is an journal for and by adults dealing with sexual and political as well as personal issues. If you are under the age of 18, please get the appropriate consent before proceeding.

Fan:
I am a multi-media fan, love sci-fi and fantasy and have been involved in reading and writing fan fiction for the past 12 years. I am in my 40s (to give you a rough age and experience range). My fan fiction can be found here. Fiction with adult ratings or adult subject matter will be labeled and cut-tagged. Please read responsibly. My fan vids can be found in streaming format here

Person:
My other interest is a rare genetic condition called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) that I have been diagnosed with.   I also ask that you take time to read this before posting or commenting about EDS.  Please note that comments on typos, grammar and formatting will be deleted. LJ formatting problems may or may not be able to be fixed - do not feel offended if I am unable to respond to your request. Hopefully after reading about EDS, you will understand why it is difficult to type and participate online.

WARNING: If you a
re looking for more info about EDS please header over to the volunteer EDS Alert blog here. This is a private journal and EDS is not the main topic of discussion. Please do not give out the link to my private journal (unless you are interested in fannish things, vidding or disussions about slash and sexuality). If you're only interested in EDS, I tag my EDS posts here.

LJ Info:
I really don't have a friending policy. In fact I am somewhat haphazard about it. If you are adding me to your journal reading list and want to be added back, it does help to drop me a note who you are and what are your interests. I have extensive filters and try to keep up with people that way. My blog contains a wide range of topics: personal, political, financial, legal. fannish, and medical. I can be silly and serious. cranky and goofy -often in the same post. I have a very twisted sense of humor - if you think something is funny, more likely than not I am intending it to be funny. And sometimes I am intending it to be so even when you don't think it is funny. My humor requires a great deal of ....humour. And last if you are reading this journal or if you've asked to be added to my friends list to read locked posts - you are agreeing to this. Read it. And then if you want to be added to my friends list, drop me a comment with some info on who you are, what topics you are interested in and that you've read and agreed to the things I need in order for me to feel comfortable inviting you into the more private areas of my 'home.' However, if I do not add you to my reading list, please do not take it personally. I also use tracking notifications in lieu of 'friending' to follow specific posts on other people's journals.

In the year 2525
If man is still alive
If woman can survive
They may find.....

Are we there yet? And where are the flying cars?
PS. Nothing posted on my blog or in any of my comments is legal advice. From time to time this journal will provide background on legal issues; it does not provide legal advice. Legal advice is tailored to the facts of your particular situation. If you need legal advice, consult an attorney.

Update: April 15, 2013: The bulk of the fanzine information has been moved to Fanlore, the fan run wiki. You can access Fanlore's home page here.
_____________________________________
If you're looking for a list of fanzines by fandom, this is what I have so far:

Place of Honor:  Starsky & Hutch. Pepper has compiled the most amazing and complete fanzine listing. Mahvelous. Go here

1. Alphabetical listing
A-Team - list here (last updated in 1997) and here
Beauty & the Beast here and here
Buffy and Angel
Blake's 7  - Judith has an extensive list here
Dr Who - partial lists available here and here and here
Due South -Ray Vecchio Fanzines and  Ray Kowalski Fanzines
Inspector Morse here
The Magnificent 7 here
The Man From U.N.C.L.E - slash fanzines here, gen and slash fanzines here
The Professionals -The Hatstand  and Palely Loitering (with their own LJ here)
Quantum Leap - old list, needs updating
Rat Patrol - Excel spreadsheet here
Real Ghostbusters - here (defunct, last updated 2002). A more current list is here
Robin of Sherwood here
Seaquest here and here
The Sentinel - Loft Library -Slash Zines and Gen Zines
Smallville here
Shadow Chasers here (old archive)
Sherlock Holmes here
Stargate SG1 - old list here
Starsky & Hutch - Pepper's Amazing List With Every Possible Combination Except Pepperoni
Star Trek   - K/S Slash Zines and Star Trek Zinedex (gen/het/slash). An index of stories published in fanzines by title and author can be downloaded from the KirkSpockCentral mailing list (membership required).
Star Wars - Star Wars Collector's Bible (older list archived here)
Supernatural - here
Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea here
Xena/Hercules - partial list here

2. Multi-Fandom Lists

Ming's Fanzine Archives (Star Trek, Star Wars & other Fandoms - click on the pdfs for the list)
Fandom Wikis - FanLore and Fan History

3. What To Do With That Aging Fanzine Collection?  If you don't  want to sell your fanzines on eBay or at a convention, the  Fan Culture Preservation Project  will help fans find homes for their fanzine collections - either at the University of Iowa or  via fellow fans.  More here and  here.

What I like about the Fan Culture Project is that the University will pay for shipping and loading of the zines.  I have several friends whose health has declined, don't want to sell their collection, but want to find their fanzines a good home.

Other places to buy/sell your fanzines: the Zinelist Announcements List, its sister discussion mailing list  Zinelist or the SlashSwap mailing list. You can offer your fanzines on LJ at Fandom Swap.     Jim and Melody Rondeau will also agent your fanzines online and at conventions for a small commission. As a last resort head over to eBay but beware you may be charged 2-3x more than you would buying from fannish sources.

For new zines/in print zines only:  The Zine listing communities - one here on Dreamwidth and the mirror here on LJ. Melody Clark has started MediaFen, a fanzine listing blog. The RSS feed for LJ users is here. The direct blog link is here.

If you're trying to track down a fanzine producer whose website has moved or gone away, try using the Wayback Machine.  Ex:  The Zine Zone (last updated in 2003) is archived here.

4. Any other lists? Drop a note. And feel free to link here, as I'll update it.

Looking for Fanzine lists:
Star Trek - gen/het
Buffy/Angel - some zines listed on Fanlore
Highlander - some zines listed on Fanlore
Farscape
Firefly
Supernatural
X-Files - some zines listed on Fanlore

5. Wanna Know How Your Ancestors Produced Their Fan Fiction?
Read "Fandom Before Computers"

Fiction with adult ratings or adult subject matter will be labeled as adult.  My writing involves adult themes that focus on  controversial subject matters and often contains both violence and/or sex, including character deaths and non-consensual acts.  Please read responsibly.

Most of my fan fiction was written years ago and has been previously published in fanzines. The posting date in this journal or any other site does not represent the actual publication date.

 A quick real life update. We're having to replace all the water pipes and fixtures in our home in the next few weeks . In addition our HVAC system of 20 years suddenly crashed and we're scrambling to find someone to install new heating and air conditioning. System. right now the earliest we can find someone to come out is six weeks. . Did I mention the car reached its hundred thousand mile checkup and needed major repairs?
 
My long-winded way of saying I don't think I'll be focusing on much else for the next  6 weeks.

 The  co-founder and moderator of the of the first Han/Luke slash archive Elusive Lover is contacting Open Doors in the hopes they will migrate her now dead archive to AO3.  The site went down in 2009 when the tech person maintaining it drifted away, but Cara is still around and most of the stories are archived on the Internet Archive. It is small  so if a manual migration is necessary, it should be easy.   In any event, the ownership of the original domain name is now back in fandom hands (pointing to the WayBack Machine for now) so you can peruse it here: http://elusivelover.com/ [A Dreamwidth post with comment count unavailable comments | Post or read on Dreamwidth| How to use OpenID]

From “ Lettercol · Where No Fan Has Gone Before “

“Lettercol is a section of the Spockanalia fanzine dedicated to displaying letters sent into the fanzine by readers. 

This is one of the most significant ways in which fanzines influenced early modern fandom culture. Letter sections of fanzines were commonplace and not only shared information, but also shared the thoughts of readers, many of which were many miles apart. Due to the existence of letter sections, and the writings of avid fans, fanzines were the pre-internet forum of fandom, allowing fans to share thoughts and engage in discourse. Fanzines allowed fans to stay connected to Star Trek, and to each other, even over great distances.

This being siad, however, these two examples of early Lettercol both focus on letters sent to Spockanalia by high-profile readers. The Spockanalia #1Lettercol features a single letter, from Leonard Nimoy (Spock’s actor) wishing the editors well in their fanzine endeavors. Lettercol in Spockanalia #2 is much the same flavor, but multiplied. There are letters from Gene Roddenberry, Star Trek writer Dorothy Fontana, James Doohan (Scotty’s actor), Walter Koenig (Chekov’s actor), and even two in-character letters from Dr. McCoy (written by his actor DeForest Kelley), and a rebuttal from Mr. Spock (written of course by Leonard Nimoy). “

Need help testing out another transcription service for the fandom oral history interviews. The system is Temi, video below.

It automatically transcribes the audio and then you use their web browser to proofread. Since the video below,  they have added more editing tools, like highlighting questionable text for later review and a search and replace.




Here is a live example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myOb2A9iMuQ

 Since I have had no luck recruiting more transcribers for the Media Fandom Oral History Project, we thought we'd give automatic transcription a try.  I need people willing to test the service..it does a raw initial transcript, which you would then have to proofread (and edit...it cannot handle most fandom vocabulary and  needs help from time to time to identify speakers.)

PM me at morgandawn @ gmail.com

PS. The services we're testing are Sonix and Happy Scribe [A Dreamwidth post with comment count unavailable comments | Post or read on Dreamwidth| How to use OpenID]

Visualizing Star Trek Fandom Through Letters · Where No Fan Has Gone Before:

“This spatial study is an attempt to demonstrate how Star Trek fanzines connected the fandom. The dataset used is derived from fanletters sent in to two Star Trek fanzines: Spockanalia (issues #1-5) and T-Negative (issues #1-20). The purpose of this study is to emphasize how fanzines helped create a highly connected fandom in the pre-internet era, and also to form a body of primary source documents for further scholrly inquiry.

Despite fanzines predating the Trekkies, it was within Star Trek fandom that the concept of a fanzine really thrived and gained traction beyond the insular science fiction fandom of the time. In a time before the internet and social media, fanzines allowed for the sharing of art and ideas across countries, oceans, and timezones. Thanks to fanzines, fans could share ideas across a far wider range than telephones or letters could handle.

Of even greater importance is fanzines were not simply regular publications containing art, stories, and articles; they were also a means of communication between fans on a large scale. Through fanzines fans could engage with other fans on more than a 1:1 ratio and over long distances. Any fan that read the fanzines, or sent in articles and stories effectively participated in interactions with other fans, but it is through the fanletters that fans most directly engaged with other members of the fandom.”

Last time this happened, it was because one person has set a "do not index" on their story and it blocked the entire website




I used the AO3 support link to let them know. 

Their response

"
Thank you for contacting us regarding the Wayback Machine archiving being blocked. Unfortunately, the issue is not a simple one to resolve. Individual Archive of Our Own users have the right to request that their own works be removed from the Internet Archive. It is likely that the Internet Archive receives enough requests to do so that they have blocked the robots.txt for archiveofourown.org as a whole rather than allow or disallow specific page links. While we are discussing possible approaches to this issue internally, it is not a simple fix, and will require input from our Legal team volunteers as well as our systems and coding volunteers to come up with a solution. Even then, if the Internet Archive chooses to block our site as a whole rather than distinguish between individual work page requests, there may be nothing we can do to change their policy.
 
We note that on your linked Dreamwidth page you encourage other users to send us Support requests regarding this issue because it would "help". Please understand that additional reports about this issue will do nothing to hasten a solution and are not helpful. Additional reports will only create more work for our very small and understaffed volunteer Support team, and for that reason we'd request that you not encourage a wave of reports for this already-known issue."

 I suggested that they post this as part of their FAQ or somewhere prominently so that this doesn't get repeatedly reported by other people. Is there a known  issue section? 
 

But it would help if other people checked it out and let them know? Last time it took them months to get the Wayback Machine to restore AO3 to the Internet Archive.
 
 
2. Grab a URL from a non adult/explicit story and run it through the "Save Page Now"

Capture a web page as it appears now for use as a trusted citation in the future.

 One of our longstanding volunteers has had to bow out of The Media Fandom Oral History Project.   During her years, she transcribed dozens of interviews with early women of fandom. So we're looking for a few more fans interested  in transcribing audio interviews. They run around 1 hr each and you can  work at your own pace. More info on the project here:
 
If interested  email me at morgandawn @ gmail.com

WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR FANZINES BEFORE (AND AFTER) YOU DIE!
This may be of help to both publishers and owners of fanzines.

1. Don’t wait until you’re dead. 

2. Resell those zines you no longer need or want. If you do not want to sell them yourself, there are resellers

*Dr Beth on eBay (she will buy them for resale. She also buys bulk collections)  She will buy all and give cash upfront and pays shipping. She is good if you need to sell quickly.    https://www.facebook.com/ Doctor-Beth-Fanzine-Store-on- Ebay-1514044065508294/ https://www.facebook.com/Doctor-Beth-Fanzine-Store-on-Ebay-1514044065508294/

*Jim and Melody Rondeau (they agent - they sell your zine and take a 10% commission).  They take all the zines and pay only when the zines sell. You pay the shipping.    http://www.crossovers.net/makeitgoaway/fanzinehome.htm http://www.crossovers.net/makeitgoaway/fanzinehome.htm

*Orphan zine tables (at Escapade or Revelcon). They take 15% commission.  You ship and have to deal with leftovers after the con.   https://escapadecon.net/https://escapadecon.net/ or http://www.revelcon.com/ http://www.revelcon.com/

* Requiem Fannish Flea.  15% Commission.   You may either ship to Requiem or deal with shipping orders yourself. http://flea.ravenshadow.net/ http://flea.ravenshadow.net/

3. No market for the zines? If you want them to remain in fandom circulation, donate them to
*Escapade zine library  https://escapadecon.net/ 

*K/S Press Library (Star Trek slash) https://fanlore.org/wiki/The_K/S_Press  Contact:   kathleener at aol dot com    (Note: they also have a European branch, which accepts donations)

*Beauty and the Beast fanzine library  http://www.crystalroselendinglibrary.com/

If  there are no fandom specific libraries and/or you are  looking for a charitable donation/tax write-off, donate them to one of the 3 universities who will accept them.  Most will pay for the cost of shipping. Here is a flyer that explains. http://www.mediafire.com/folder/j66kxj8w7t87z/Fanzine_Flyer

4. Oops, You’re Dead (this really falls under “Don’t Wait Until You’re Dead)
If you have a will or a trust, spell out what you want to do with the zines. Include  multiple options (”my zines go to my friend Mary Sue. If she is no longer living or reachable, please donate them to University of X“)

If you don’t have a will or trust ….at least tell your family and friends.

5. The Fail-safe Solution.  
No matter what you choose above, tuck a note inside your zines discussing what you want to happen to them after you pass.  You can print out the fanzine flyer (see above) and stash multiple copies in among your zines. Scribble on the flyer - Please donate my zines. Thx, bye!

6. Don’t Forget The Rest….
The fandom history archives at Universities want more than just zines. Your letters, correspondence.  Fanzine flyers and convention program guides. Fan Art. Fan Vids (yes, even VCR tapes) . Filk!  If you are downsizing  now, contact morgandawn at gmail dot com. and she can help guide you on what to do with the non-fanzine materials.

7. Publishers Final Note: if you are a zine publisher and want your works to be digitally preserved, contact morgandawn at gmail dot com.  She  can put you in touch with Texas A&M University  who is scanning and archiving fanzines for their closed special collection.
https://fanlore.org/wiki/Sandy_Hereld_Memorial_Digitized_Media_Fanzine_Collection

This has been updated as of March 29, 2018 with more detailed info about the reseller options

The additions:

*Dr Beth on eBay (she will buy them for resale. She also buys bulk collections)  She will buy all and give cash upfront and pays shipping. She is good if you need to sell quickly.    https://www.facebook.com/ Doctor-Beth-Fanzine-Store-on- Ebay-1514044065508294/ https://www.facebook.com/Doctor-Beth-Fanzine-Store-on-Ebay-1514044065508294/

*Jim and Melody Rondeau (they agent - they sell your zine and take a 10% commission).  They take all the zines and pay only when the zines sell. You pay the shipping.    http://www.crossovers.net/makeitgoaway/fanzinehome.htm http://www.crossovers.net/makeitgoaway/fanzinehome.htm

*Orphan zine tables (at Escapade or Revelcon). They take 15% commission.  You ship and have to deal with leftovers after the con.   https://escapadecon.net/https://escapadecon.net/ or http://www.revelcon.com/ http://www.revelcon.com/

* Requiem Fannish Flea.  15% Commission.   You may either ship to Requiem or deal with shipping orders yourself. http://flea.ravenshadow.net/ http://flea.ravenshadow.net/

I recently bought three Stingray fanzines from Dr. Beth and can recommend her if you’re looking to buy. I’m probably gonna re-sell them eventually after reading them a bunch of times more, because it would be a shame if they gathered dust. Those are some seriously good stories in there. That kind of fic is not in style right now - gen plotfic that could double as an episode - but it has always been my favorite kind of fic, and those fanzines are a goldmine for those.

I’ve always wondered about copyright issues on these. Do authors still have any kind of copyright? Because if not, I can’t understand why these things aren’t being scanned and preserved online. There was a mega- fanzine archive of fantastic Star Wars fics online that died out before the prequels could rejuvenate it, and it was such a damn pity. But indont think it would happen now that the Net has grown so large.

There are several layers to the question of copyrights in connection with fanzines. The first applies to all special collections that are working on historical preservation. US law has a fluid definition of fair use that many universities and archives believe gives them latitude to digitize for preservation purposes. One example is UCLA, which undertook a project to digitize early Mexican music stored on 78 RPM records. Because these recordings were often made in pop-up studios with uncredited artists, the copyrights and ownership could never be resolved. UCLA decided that fair use allowed them to digitize , as long as they kept access to the collection limited for educational and research purposes. Fair use has allowed additional preservation projects to be undertaken across the US even when the identities and owners of the underlying copyrights are known (ex The HaithiTrust project or the Rusty Hevelin fanzine digitization project at University of Iowa). TAMU has taken the extra step of reaching out to fanzine publishers because they want this to be a fandom history project that has support from the community. When it comes to broader distribution, however, there is less consensus as to whether fair use can extend that far. As for your second question, whether the fan creators have a copyright in their works, that is a much more complex question. Putting aside the argument that fanworks are transformative works vs the underlying copyrights are still owned by the studios , if the work was published prior to 1989 without a very specifically formatted copyright notification, the fanworks may now be in the public domain. After 1989, all works are considered automatically copyrighted even if they don’t contain the notice. Complicating matters of course is that this is specific to the USA …copyright laws are much different in other countries. So you can understand why digitization with public distribution is daunting. Several fanzine publishers have digitized their publications and are posting them online. The biggest one to date is Scotpress, which is a Star Trek fanzine publisher based in Scotland.

Why Did Fans Flee LiveJournal, and Where Will They Go After Tumblr? (link to the Slate Article)

“What you’ll notice from the chart is that between 2007 and 2009, things were happening with LiveJournal that made people not like it anymore. From the chart, you’ll see that it didn’t start to precipitously dip until a couple of years after that. You can see that Tumblr and Archive of Our Own, or AO3, are both climbing around the same time. I think that those had to get popular enough, enough people moving there so that those were a place for people to move to, because when there’s nowhere for you to go, they don’t go. You can think of AO3 and Tumblr as sort of the archive side and the social side of LiveJournal, so there wasn’t a single place that people could move to, so instead you see people going to both of those places.”

WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR FANZINES BEFORE (AND AFTER) YOU DIE!
This may be of help to both publishers and owners of fanzines.

1. Don’t wait until you’re dead. 

2. Resell those zines you no longer need or want. If you do not want to sell them yourself, there are resellers

*Dr Beth on eBay (she will buy them for resale. She also buys bulk collections)  She will buy all and give cash upfront and pays shipping. She is good if you need to sell quickly.    https://www.facebook.com/ Doctor-Beth-Fanzine-Store-on- Ebay-1514044065508294/ https://www.facebook.com/Doctor-Beth-Fanzine-Store-on-Ebay-1514044065508294/

*Jim and Melody Rondeau (they agent - they sell your zine and take a 10% commission).  They take all the zines and pay only when the zines sell. You pay the shipping.    http://www.crossovers.net/makeitgoaway/fanzinehome.htm http://www.crossovers.net/makeitgoaway/fanzinehome.htm

*Orphan zine tables (at Escapade or Revelcon). They take 15% commission.  You ship and have to deal with leftovers after the con.   https://escapadecon.net/https://escapadecon.net/ or http://www.revelcon.com/ http://www.revelcon.com/

* Requiem Fannish Flea.  15% Commission.   You may either ship to Requiem or deal with shipping orders yourself. http://flea.ravenshadow.net/ http://flea.ravenshadow.net/

3. No market for the zines? If you want them to remain in fandom circulation, donate them to
*Escapade zine library  https://escapadecon.net/ 

*K/S Press Library (Star Trek slash) https://fanlore.org/wiki/The_K/S_Press  Contact:  catalenamara at yahoo dot com   (Note: they also have a European branch, which accepts donations)

*Beauty and the Beast fanzine library  http://www.crystalroselendinglibrary.com/

If  there are no fandom specific libraries and/or you are  looking for a charitable donation/tax write-off, donate them to one of the 3 universities who will accept them.  Most will pay for the cost of shipping. Here is a flyer that explains. http://www.mediafire.com/folder/j66kxj8w7t87z/Fanzine_Flyer

4. Oops, You’re Dead (this really falls under “Don’t Wait Until You’re Dead)
If you have a will or a trust, spell out what you want to do with the zines. Include  multiple options (”my zines go to my friend Mary Sue. If she is no longer living or reachable, please donate them to University of X“)

If you don’t have a will or trust ….at least tell your family and friends.

5. The Fail-safe Solution.  
No matter what you choose above, tuck a note inside your zines discussing what you want to happen to them after you pass.  You can print out the fanzine flyer (see above) and stash multiple copies in among your zines. Scribble on the flyer - Please donate my zines. Thx, bye!

6. Don’t Forget The Rest….
The fandom history archives at Universities want more than just zines. Your letters, correspondence.  Fanzine flyers and convention program guides. Fan Art. Fan Vids (yes, even VCR tapes) . Filk!  If you are downsizing  now, contact morgandawn at gmail dot com. and she can help guide you on what to do with the non-fanzine materials.

7. Publishers Final Note: if you are a zine publisher and want your works to be digitally preserved, contact morgandawn at gmail dot com.  She  can put you in touch with Texas A&M University  who is scanning and archiving fanzines for their closed special collection.

This has been updated as of March 29, 2018 with more detailed info about the reseller options

The additions:

spockslash:

An open Tumblr letter to younger fans, from a 77-year-old TOS fangirl.....

* who has shipped Spirk since that night in 1967 that Amok Time first aired
* and helped storm NBC to keep TOS on the air for a 3rd season
* and wrote fanfic way back in the day
* and was privileged to be around for the earliest days of fandom, when Leonard used to come to your house if that’s where the fan club was meeting and sit on the sofa with you in that Spock hair cut and eat cake

All of you who are writing TOS/AOS fan fiction and creating fan art now: remember, YOU are the ones shaping the traditions of fandom. You have inherited the kingdom. Bless you for keeping it vibrant, growing, alive. In fifty years, you will be the ones who are remembered for molding it and handing it down to the future. It probably doesn’t feel like now, but you are making history.

Your current addiction to TOS and the feels you get when you contemplate the love between Jim and Spock will be with you for life. It won’t always be in the forefront; you will sometimes go years, sometimes go a decade, without Star Trek being more than a passing thought. But then something will remind you and every consuming feeling you feel right now will come rushing back, every bit as powerful and deep and strong as it is today. All there, right where you left it.

The friendships you make in fandom will be with you for life. Like all friendships, they will wax and wane as the focus of your life shifts over time, but you will always be able to pick up the thread. You will — to give you a hypothetical example — be 77 years old and discover Tumblr and get a rush of Spirk feels after a decade of not giving TOS a thought, and contact your 83-year-old fangirl friend in the nursing home, to whom you haven’t spoken in several years. You will open the conversation with, “So, Jim and Spock love each other and that just makes me so happy.” And your friend in the nursing home will sigh and say, “Yes. They do love each other. It’s such a comfort.”

That look that Jim and Spock give each other, of absolute adoration and acceptance and love? That’s real. It’s rare, but it’s real. One of my greatest joys in life is to see my son and his husband give each other looks like that. Of course I don’t know you; I don’t know your strengths and struggles or your place on the spectrum of gender or anything about your sexuality or what you look like or what your life has taught you to believe about yourself, but I do know this: YOU DESERVE TO BE LOVED AND LOOKED AT THE WAY JIM AND SPOCK LOOK AT EACH OTHER. Please don’t accept less than that in your life.

The future of our planet does not seem very hopeful at the moment. But please remember that when Gene created Star Trek, the world was in turmoil and the future seemed very bleak. Star Trek is, was, always shall be about hope. Reach for it. When TOS first aired, we hoped to see some form of a Starfleet on the horizon in our lifetimes. That vision must be passed on to you. Do it. Make the world worthy of launching the human race out into space. CREATE STARFLEET.

You are all creative and funny and amazing. Far more amazing than you know. Be kind to yourselves. Live long and prosper, kids.

Tags are in reference to my first bullet point. Meant as a kudos to your work, but feel free to untag yourself if you don’t want to be linked to my ramblings; I won’t be offended! (Also, this extends to a thousand other artists and writers out there who deserve kudos. tag at will.)"

The author of this October 2017 post passed away recently and if there is one blog entry that encapsulates her, it is this one.

 Fun was had! We're home. [personal profile] xlorp has come down with her predictable travel cold and so is wandering the house miserably. But we planned for it this time and she has a few vacation days to recover. Our plans to see Black Panther will be delayed.

So I'm into my second week of a tough back injury, but we're still planning on attending Escapade. I'll post my cell number under friendslock and you can always direct message me on Twitter or via email. We arrive Thursday and leave Sunday. I'll be traveling with my partner Catherine (xlorp). We won't be doing advanced meal planning (lunches or dinners), so please seek us out if you want to join us in our room eating. I'll post the room number on the voodoo message board in the convention suite.

Heads up to anyone who has their own website. Most of us have low-cost websites that are on shared servers. As you may know, Google and some  browsers are now forcing us to access websites using SSL (secured sockets layer) certificates. This secures the information being transmitted between you and the webpage. If you've ever looked at the upper left  in your browser address bar  and seen a little green sign or a lock symbol  along with "HTTPS://www...."   next to a website address, then you are accessing a website securely.
 
But if someone visits your website and their browser is set to warn against "unsecured" websites,  they will get a malicious website warning. Most fans won't proceed. But the few who do so may face yet another surprise.
 
If your visitor uses HTTPS or if they push  past the malicious website warning, they are often  redirected to someone else's website. Once that other website is in their browser cache, every single time they try to go to your website again they will be permanently redirected until they clear their cache.*
 
The reason this is happening is that many web hosts are too cheap to set up their servers properly or are using older servers. If you have a website on a shared server, and you have not paid a fee to move to a dedicated server or buy your own dedicated IP address and then paid a second fee to buy  your own security certificate, your website will be redirected to the first person on that server  who happens to have bought  a security certificate. The servers  will search alphabetically down the list  of hosted websites until they find someone with a SSL certificate and ...voila that is where you will now go.
 
For example, if your website is on a server with somebody who own website  www.aaa.com and they own  a security certificate, every single website on that server that does not have their own separate security certificate, will be redirected to www.aaa.com
 
Some web-hosts  know that Google is pushing every website and browser to use HTTPS which in turn means every website will need a security certificate. Good web-hosts are now offering free security certificates on accounts that use shared servers. Ex:  Dreamhost and LunarPages.  Bad ones, like Bluehost and Hostgator will not offer them. Or they will force you to pay 2-3x amount and upgrade to a Business Enterprise service plan. Even worse, they won't tell you it is necessary and instead leave you and your visitors to find out that your webpage is being redirected to some dude's page that starts with the Letter A. So check with your Internet host to see if they offer a  "free SSL certificate on a shared server". And move to another web-host.

Looking For Volunteer Transcriptionists & Phone Interviewers

The Media Fandom Oral History Project is in its 6th year. This  summer we were graced with a wonderful intern, Megan Genovese who was able to dedicate full time to the project. We are now looking for fans willing to transcribe the summer 2017 interviews which are 1 - 2 hrs long.  You can work at your own pace.

We are also looking for 2-3 more interviewers to help interview those fans who were not able to schedule a slot with Megan over the summer. The interviews would be conducted over the phone using a dial in conference call system.

The commitment is modest - we’re looking for someone to do 2 interviews a month over the phone. You would be responsible for contacting the fans, collecting the permission forms  and  scheduling a time to be interviewed. The interviews are 1-2 hrs long.

If interested, please email me at morgandawn @ gmail.com

Read more about the project here:  http://ift.tt/1AD9mY4

Please feel free to forward this info to anyone who is interested or link to this post.

Doyle wakes up with a hangover realizing that once again, he and Bodie have gotten drunk and had sex.  Typical Doyle, he thinks he has seduced Bodie and of course is feeling guilty.  Then Bodie  confesses how awful it makes him feel that Doyle has to get drunk in order to sleep with Bodie. Painful emoting all around.
