I'm not doing any work on anything so long as 1.) I'm hot and/or miserable;
2.) I have trouble breathing; and/or, 3. I haven't had enough sleep
or good quality sleep. Period. That's all tehre is too it. that includes
web-researching any projects I'm working on.
I THINK I have fixed what was wrong with the VamPersonals
not showing up (just a blank, white page and later, a generic list
of dating links from Hostmonster, my webhost). For some reason, somehow,
the Nameservers (NS) got changed from the ones pointing to DatingOpinions
back to Hostmonster's NS. It should be a day or two before the info
propagates, but they should be back soon.
I have been giving Sanguinarius an overhaul and editing/tweaking
a number of pages, as well as the template/layout itself, and the
organization of information on the Site Map (this page). I've deleted
a number of old, out-of-date, or disused pages that were just taking
up space. I got rid of the RealVamp.zzn.com email addresses I used
to offer, since the service was no longer available.
Also, I overhauled and updated Sangi's
Corner (my personal page) and added a LOT of information to "About
Sangi" so now you can see what a nut I really am! >;D (I'm
"mostly harmless", though.
I also folded the Sanguinarius/Sanguinarium
FAQs into my regular FAQs section and added Real
Vampire Community Animal Welfare Awareness to my site. And Dreamland
Gallery: Curiosity Shoppe is finally back online. I have earned
my sleep, and now I'm going to go claim it. Happy surfing!
One more thing: older Announcements
will be deleted as newer ones are added; they are not intended to
be permanent parts of this page, and I don't want this section to
become too long and it is.
If my declining web presence is noticeable these days, it is due to
declining health on my part. For the past several years, I've had
a chronic pain in my stomach and abdomen/intestines, protracted nausea
and vomiting. I've spent so many times in excruciating pain in the
Emergency Room and hospital that they won't treat me anymore for chronic
pain. I've got a GI doctor --when I can get in to see him -- and I
am slowly learning how to manage my condition and stay out of the
hospital (since they won't treat me, anyway; at least, not for the
As for building and working on Sanguinarius.org
at the mad pace I maintained for the first ten years (dedicated to
Sarah Winchester, of course!), I don't know when I will be able to
go at that pace again. You may have noticed that I've been gradually
"slimming down" Sanguinarius to a more manageable level.
I got rid of the Community Calendar (the community didn't use it and
I didn't have time to maintain it); the Real Vampire Directory is
now once more a page of Recommended Links (it was powered by an old,
outdated CGI script and was massive victim to spambots).
I'm toying with the idea of removing
all or most of the advertising onsite because it's not bringing in
any money; existing advertisers will still have their ads displayed
on my site until the time expires. I may go back to displaying community
sites, as I used to a long time ago, before I got it in my head I
could pay the bills with advertising.
The meat of the site will stay: I recently
upgraded and re-added all the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) into
the new database. The VCMB (though it's on it's own domain) will stay.
#Sanguinarius IRC Channel (chat room) on dal.net will stay, though
I may upgrade the web chat interface on the #Sanguinarius Homepage;
it's very old and outdated. I'm still on the lookout for articles,
tips, advice, pointers, personal experiences and more to grow the
Vampire Guide, Tips & Advice, Good Vampires Do, Problems Vampires
Have, the Parents' section and others.
I'm toying with the idea of holding
a website contest to redesign Sanguinarius.org; I'm using an HTML
editor from 1997. The only caveat: the site must be editable and maintainable
by me (front end and backend), and have space for all the information
and sections (which may get merged or redesigned, so long as the info
can still be accessed).
Updated the Good Vampires Do section
with the Vampire Court of Austin's "Vampires For Charity"
and the next couple upcoming events which help sponsor it.

Responses from the Vampire
View the archived responses from "What Do YOU Think Vampires
Are Like?", a mini-questionnaire from the days Sanguinarius:
The Vampire Support Page was hosted on AOL. When the site moved,
it was no longer able to run off AOL's guestbook script.
Reading, movies and documentaries that won't nauseate you. Yeh. I
could list my entire collection, but that's not what this page is
here for. Real vampire, nonfiction, and realistic fiction titles.
A listing of recommended links and sites pertaining to real vampires
and the vampire community, donors, otherkin and therianthropes, the
Vampyre lifestyle, and community members' shopping sites and businesses.

are best decribed as. Short, one-question poll, only takes a moment

the vampiric community & issues, vampires in the media and pop-culture,
etc.; discouraged are role-playing & rpg-discussions (unless it's
relevant to the topic of conversation) -- there are other groups which
are far more appropriate for that sort of thing.
