Sanguinarius: The Vampire Support Page launched no later than 6 June, 1997, and possibly earlier than 14 April, 1997. It was originally titled The Home Page of Sanguinarius (how lame!); it was originally located on AOL.

October, 1997 - Sanguinarius acquired a web-based chat room.

January, 1998 (possibly earlier) - Sanguinarius founded the IRC channel #Sanguinarius on The first official log with a discussion in it was dated January 25th. Unfortunately, the floppy disk Sanguinarius had the log saved on went bad and the discussion is lost, to her knowledge.

February 25, 1998 - The Sanguinarius News & Updates Mailing List was founded on ListBot, and the first message went out to the smattering of people who'd signed up by then.

March 8, 1998 - Sanguinarius resolved to be a little more open-minded about vampyre lifestylers, and extends the focus of her website to include them. The Vampire Discussion Board moved from its InsideTheWeb location to Server.Com.

By July 3, 1998 - Sanguinarius moved her site from AOL to AOL had space limitations and the page was spread out over three different screen names; it could now be consolidated under one. By this time, Sanguinarius was mirrored on, but that domain suddenly vanished; this was temporary.

September 1, 1998 - "Bloody Minded: A Message Board for Blood Drinkers" founded on This board provided a more specific forum to address the topics and concerns of those who drink blood.

By September 4, 1998 - The old InsideTheWeb Vampire Discussion board had been converted into the Vam-Personals.

November 5, 1998 - Sanguinarius moved the Vampire-Discussion group to OneList. OneList later became Egroups and finally Yahoo! Groups.

January, 1999 - Added an interactive Calendar to the site. Plans to phase out the Tripod site in favor of the one on the Coven Organization.

February 1, 1999 - Sanguinarius News & Updates List was founded on OneList.

By February 3, 1999, Sanguinarius: The Vampire Support Page was hosted on The Coven Organization's webspace "coffins". Apparently had the Real Vampire Directory up and running by then.

February 17, 1999 - Unfortunately, the entire Coven Organization site vanished once more on or about February 17th ("the stiffs who hosted the domain took offense at The Coven's PG-rated Vampire Erotica section and removed the domain from their server"). vanished with it; fortunately, it was mirrored on Tripod, but without the resources such as The Real Vampire Directory and the Vampire Community Calendar. The Coven site was back up again a few days later, but it prompted Sanguinarius to seriously consider acquiring a domain of her own.

June 9, 1999 - domain launched with the generous help of Sangpoursang.

June 13, 1999 - Vampires-AMOK, the quad-state coven, is founded for vampires living in Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Kansas.

October 28-December 12, 1999 - The Coven site vanished again. According to Raphael Osiris, the Coven Org's founder, "The Coven lost access to it's server because of an overly-cautious hosting providor concerned about our type of 'content' and traffic. ...

Eerie America TV Series

Eerie America could very well be called The Fodor’s Travel Guidebook for The Addams Family. I read some in-depth information about the show and saw the promo, and from what I can tell, this will be an absolutely AWESOME series if they can get it off the ground. (I'm actually praying they will.) Let others know and see who can help. This is something that should happen! Let's pull together and make it so!
