Trek Caps

Star Trek: Picard & Site Future

I’ve gotten a few quetions whether I’ll be capping Star Trek: Picard when it’s released. The answer is yes… but that answer is contingent on whether or not I shut down this site.

For the past few years I’ve been wanting to reduce the number of sites I have, and have deleted more than half of them. But I haven’t been able to make a desicion about this one so far – I’m as big a Star Trek fan as ever, and this is one of my most dearest sites. But just capping TOS in full was my original plan, and then TNG because it came out in HD. This is one of the huge sites I have left, and I’m not enjoying/having problems extending the mental energy it takes to keep (especiallybig) sites going because the next server disaster is always just around the corner. Recovering from those can take months.  I have several chronic illnesses and I’m a spoonie and this makes it all even harder. I’ve had times in the last few years I’ve just wanted to wipe this site out of existence and be done with it, but I didn’t because I also kind of hate that thought and know 100% I’d regret it soon after. But I still kinda want to do it all the time. And I’m still hoping for DS9 and VOY in HD on Bluray, and already right now want to cap them in HD, so I’d likely just end-up restarting the site had I deleted it and then those two come on.

Also part of my consideration is Jeri Ryan who is my favorite actress, for whom I have a fansite as well (along with this one, these two sites are my oldest sites now! I started both in 1997.) and who will be appearing on Star Trek: Picard. I’ll be capping her in any case, and I suspect I’ll want to cap the full eps because of that.

So there’s a lot of waffling about going on about the site’s future, and has been for a while.

Slow Server

I’m sorry for the slowness of several of my sites recently. It’s due to the server being busy because of so many busy sites. My host will be adding two new servers, and will move many sites from the current server to the new ones to ease server load. This should make all sites faster again. They’ll be working on this the next several days, including the weekend.

I don’t know yet whether my sites will be moved or not. I’ll let you know once I know. Some sites, such the Xena and The Vampire Diaries sites, the gallery is so slow when I try to add pics  that it’s next to impossible to do it until it’s working better. So no updates at least on those particularly slow galleries until the server load eases.

Downtime + New Tumblr

Liteseed stopped and it failed to restart, a manual restart was required. It happened during my host’s night, so that’s why the downtime.

Also, I needed to switch out  the site’s Tumblr account to a sideblog of my personal Tumblr account to make maintaining it easier. So if you followed the site’s Tumblr please follow again! The new URL is: https://startrekcentral.tumblr.com

Sorry for the hassle!
