As some of you know, Pan Historia is currently down. I got a message from Wyatt via the usual channels while he is in NYC. It would seem that the reason for this is that there was a fire in the building next door to where Pan’s servers are being housed. Not to worry, Pan’s servers and all of the hard work that those of you who are members there is fine. We are now just waiting to get the site brought back up as soon as we get power back online.
Thank you for your patience.
There is no time than when a woman is with child that her dreams are the most profound – and perhaps frightening as well. Since the death of my husband, I had left Versailles, but only after having to beg my leave from the Court from King Louis himself. The King said that he was very sorry to see me go, but that he completely understood my reasons for doing so. He promised to send a mutual friend to check upon my progress. That night I left Paris and travelled to my husband’s ancestral home.
I dreamt last night that it was Louis de Rouvroy, Monsieur le Duc de Saint-Simon that the King sent to the Château de Rochefort. He was certainly one of the most well spoken and elegant of King Louis gentlemen at Court. He had a frank honesty about him that shocked many, and that Louis tolerated even when the Duc criticised him roundly for his excesses and those of the Court.

isabel_giovanni has graciously given me and her FL a heads up and now I am passing it along to all on my FL as well. I have lost too many years of content due to defunct websites, changing ownerships and melted down servers. To say that I do not trust LJ’s new Russian owners is an absolute understatement, especially in light of this news.
LJ Archive by Sourceforge.net is a good way to do this. Whatever you do, just back it up. It is not my intention to cause a panic. Hell, I bought a permanent account, too. But the heartbreak of losing what you have written is indescribable. Don’t be caught out.
And not to pimp my own site, but I am going to pimp my own site because Ive busted my butt and funded the thing since 1999 as one of the owners. Pan Historia is a great online community website. There are lots of great features and it is worth a look. I am not going to do a hard sell, but honestly, we’ve been independent and ad free for these nearly ten years and I can promise you WE WILL NOT sell out to Russians or anyone else! Pride in ownership does say something.
