Why I did this... [disclaimer]

I was thinking back on my college days, and as HTML was relatively new at the time (yet still something people just did for fun) I decided to make a Chtorran fan site around 1995.

I did not get it "fully completed," and when I became distracted over time / eventually graduated, it was deleted by the school's network staff to make room for new server space etc. after I had moved on.

Unfortunately, all the work I put into it at that point vanished when the site was deleted. Until I found it archived online recently, and saved a copy of the site as it appeared - back in 1996.

So... I still don't have the time to put all the effort into a "fan site" and - as it wouldn't be free without me jumping through a few hoops, I officially declare it R.I.P. But there's still this blog site of mine.

To keep the blog from going the way of the college-era fan site, I will have to update this as often as possible. But - without doing a full-scale re-read and finding something insightful to ponder - I guess waiting for the series to progress when the next book is published is all that can be done.
