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.

Downtime And Broken Links

Sorry for the downtime and all the broken links! My host’s data center made a mistake while installing a new server and re-installed the current one instead, wiping out all sites on it, and then there was a script or  user error when my host tried to restore from backups which lead to loss of most recent backups. Looks like we lost about 3,5 months worth of updates + plus maybe older uploads too, randomly (at least that’s what happened on my other sites) 🙁 I can restore (hopefully) everything from my personal backups, but I have to check a lot of things ro it’ll take a lot of work and time so please be patient with me.

TOS, TNG and DSC galleries are still down, and my host is working on that. The other sections are up and working, but I’ll have to do a deeper check on them too to see if any files are missing or whether they are actually all there. So a lot of things left to restore, but I’m on it!
