Future of ShadowHime

I think I got a better idea of what I want to do with the site.

I’m still going to keep a limited IRC presence here, but its more of a front for my bots I run which I need to re-do that page anyway; and set up a CRON again… I hate CRON btw.

Anyway, the idea I’m thinking is to basically wipe everything about the now-defunct IRC Server I used to run that went absolutely nowhere. About the only mentions of IRC after the revamp will be reduced to just about the XDCC bots really for Exiled-Destiny. The purpose I’m probably going to use this blog for is to qwip about things online, what I’m doing, post my thoughts on anime and games probably; so I’ll still be around here, but not what one would think.

I’ll also be posting some information on projects I’m working on for said games too, like the one I’m working on for Moero Chronicle for instance. The Twitter account will remain, I’ll probably just change up a detail or two or something; or I may change it over to the main twitter account I use which is @TwinShadow_SH. (TwinShadow was taken, so.. yeah)

So, in short:

  • Total revamp of the blog.
  • Removal of about 90% of IRC mentions. (I’ve gotten a couple emails recently about them, which is weird..)
  • New logo.
  • Brand new theme. (I’m exploring options of premium themes, but I may stick to the current one, but actually purchase it because I LOVE it that much.. However, if I find a suitable dark theme, I’ll look at it.)
  • Among other things.

There you have it. I’ve left this blog alone for so long that its about time I did something again. Maybe make it a fun side-project because I do want to do something for this site again and be able to link to it again.

Recent Site Downtime

Apologies for the recent downtime. For some reason, something got knocked off and the blog couldn’t connect to the database. Oh well, that gave me an opportunity to change it to something much stronger since apparently.. it was stupid weak…… Yeah yeah, I know. I learned my ways now.

Anyway, site is back up and operational. Mostly as a placeholder for now until I feel like actually doing something with ShadowHime again. I don’t know what I want to do with the site or just do something entirely different from the ground up or something. I have no clue…

IRC Down

I’ve been contemplating this for a while on this, but since no one really comes into the server anymore, I may as well go ahead and shut it down. Probably permanently this time around.

Mashiro will continue as always, just the ShadowHime IRC servers are going down is all.

Mashiro 2.0 Is Here!

That’s right folks, Mashiro 2.0 is live! I need to update the packlist actually.. just /lazy.

So what does that mean for the IRC server? Well, I honestly have been pretty busy the last few days, especially with some unexpected expenses I wasn’t counting on, so I had to get those taken care of. With them out of the way, I’ll be able to focus on getting the IRC stuff transferred over. I’m also going to do some much needed updates as well, but I won’t divulge that info since its mostly just internal stuff and operator-related things. That’s the bit that will take most of my time.

I’ll make an update when I have more info available to give.

BTW, back this already: Kodomo no Jikan is coming! =P

New Server Inbound!

Alright, so honestly I did forget to make another post saying the server was back up. It was a few hours after I made my original post but basically what happened was the NIC died, as well as something potentially on the motherboard I think. Thankfully, no data was lost.

Now onto some other news. I’ll have more details at a later date, however… y’all will like it. I purchased a new server and over the next week, data migration will occur, I’ll need to reconfigure the IRC server and all that (fun stuff, so we’ll be down to just the LoliFox server temporarily), and also get the bot configured again and such. It’ll be a little time consuming, but it’ll work out in the end.

I’m going to leave out a major piece of info until after I get the server up and going with a working bot and such. Again, to transfer some odd 7.5 TB of data is going to take some time to complete.

Kodomo no Jikan is coming!

Holy crap I have a use for this tag?

Anyway, I’m not going to beat around the bush.

If y’all want Kodomo no Jikan, THEN BACK THIS DAMN PROJECT IMMEDIATELY! Like, don’t even bother finish reading this post. Just click that link, back it, however much you want, and get a legit copy when it comes. Like, I’m not kidding. Stop reading this.

You’re still reading my post aren’t you? WHY HAVEN’T YOU BACKED THE DAMN PROJECT?!?!?!?!
