Busy / Looking for writer(s)

Sorry for not writing in a while -- for once, it's not due to a lack of ideas. Other things (like building this stupid little website) have kept me pretty busy lately.

In other news, the fiction project is looking for one or two new writers. If you feel like you want to participate, please contact me, but please beware:

  • You must read the entire story so far and familiarize yourself with the characters and places before you begin writing.
  • You must be imaginative. After reading the story so far, you should have a rough idea on which open thread to pick up and how the story could proceed from there.
  • You must be able to get the feeling/mood of the story and continue in a similar vein, not turn it into something completely different.
  • You must be able to write an entry at least 2-3 times per week, regularly, for the next few months.
  • You must be a person who can follow rules.

If you like the story and think you can do all this, then you're very welcome to join.

I noticed the change when accessing the new OPAC. Thought it looked a bit like your work. Has MT been the CMS for the UB site before? Or is that part of the redesign?

Horst said on August 31, 2005 06:33 PM:

Part of the site (the News page, the Exhibitions pages, and some external libraries) was already managed with MT before, but most of it was just static pages.

The OPAC is an entirely different thing on an entirely different server managed by entirely different people, even though some minor things (like using JavaScript to create self-updating links for new acquisitions) were things that I came up with and did the code for them.

So that third comment was removed. Anyways, what was that supposed to be? I found it quite spooky.

It was comment spam for some weird search site. And yes, it was spooky.
