Too bad for all my upcoming droves of fans that they will have to wait
Well, look at it this way: Fan Auio will have a huge day on Sept. 1, and for those at Dragon*Con as well, it's an even bigger weekend.
Had some issues with uploading last night, but I've updated the site for those who currently have access. Those of you with that access can already find "The Mob" available. That's the Anthology release for Sept. 1, which will go along with the other two new releases and the site launch.
Tonight, tomorrow, or Monday, depending on how the connection holds up, I should have copies of both ROTO #1 and the first full interview file from Rich for the ROTO section, so that means there will be *two* ROTO files to kick off the series, rather than just one.
Also, I have been given the final files for RON, and we'll be hosting mirrors for all three versions, all of which will be up on the site launch, which is the same day as the RON premiere.
And . . . I've gotten "The Mob" ready to go.
So we have four files ready for release on the same day as the site, and we're finalizing how the address will work. Right now, we're angling on it being like TFN Fan Films, where the site is a subsection of StarWarz.com, but also has the domain name, kind of like TFN Fan Films is actually a directory of TFN, with fanfilms.com as a pointer.
Basically, what we're waiting on now is the server switch. The Nexcess folks are ready to do so next weekend, just before site launch, and that should be a straignt 1:1 transfer of the files from the JediNet server.
Once the site launches, I have a redirect page set up to point to starwarsfanworks.com that will be put up in place of every single HTML page for the current ChronoRadio, 2S, Anthology, and Context subdirectories of StarWarz/Timeline, and I'll be updating the SWT-G's page at StarWarz/Timeline to point to the new site and to eventually get rid of the redirects, probably around January 1, to give people time to fix bookmarks and such.
9 days, boys 'n' girls.
Just updated the runtime tally.
Right now, we're looking at the following:
Requiem of the Outcast
Star Wars: The Musical
Rise of Nobility
Digital Llama Radio
Digital Llama Player's Guide
Digital Llama 2.0
All of those get added to the runtime tally, presuming they will be released as of Sept. 1. Now, I haven't calculated in ROTO #1 or the first ROTO interview because I don't have the files from Rich yet, but without those two files, we have, between FULL, CO-, and PAGE-HOSTED projects, a total opening runtime of 53:27:08 of content.
Full Hosting means hosting a page and all files.
Co-Hosting means hosting a page and either all files as mirrors or major files in conjunction with an official site.
Page-hosting means just an informative page with a link to a project's official download site.
Well, the process is beginning. We have the new Nexcess IP and DNS info setup for the starwarsfanworks.com domain, and it's slowly propagating, so Lou says he can already see the teaser at the domain again. For me, it still says the domain doesn't exist at the moment. Hopefully, that will all be through by Monday.
The files should all be unzipped on the new box soon, which will just mean some file uploading and such for me once Lou has the FTP info all set up for us.
So, still aiming at Monday.
heh, so it takes me longer than most to get around to making it to the boards.... at least i made it!
1. The profile of the month isn't me. The one with me was a placeholder until we could get it all set up and figure out how we were going to be swapping them out. The actual profile for the opening is Amy Ferrell (since, well, for visual appeal in the first profile image, you can't beat that picture of "Ames").
aw, Nafun, you are da sweeeeetest!! i'm gonna scoop you up if none of those sillie girls back home do.
A classic thread returns . . . with flirtation. Gotta love it.
