This is where we tell you what has changed on the site. Last month, October, was rather quiet despite it being our 11th anniversary of being online. SSL was updated on 10/21/2023 a few days ahead of expiration. And we are still with Anubian Host. They’ve had some turbulent times with moving their bare metal server. But we’re still staying with them.
Contact us via E-mail.
There were some readers that were saddened that we didn’t have a way of sending us encrypted e-mail via GPG/PGP. We don’t want to see sad readers and we get it that you don’t want your ISP reading your e-mail via SMTP. So we added it! Go check it out!
Haven’t had much for updates on this portion because the webrings have sort of stopped growing. Perhaps we’ve hit the plateau of new sites?

Alternative sites – 10/02/2023
Inside of cellar door, we placed a subcategory for “alternative sites” These are sites that live in dimensions that are in tune with the black mirror.
The admins of Cynical reached out to us via contact us on 10/01/2023 – Added them to the blog roll as they’re making an attempt to get I2P sites together. And so far, they’re site in terms of up-time has been rock solid. Still looking forward to Tor in case the admins read this.
– We also moved these out of Lainchan and into alternative sites, as they kinda stand on their own. 10/09/2023
Firefox discontinuing Theora/OGV.
We are aware that Chrome and Firefox are thinking of removing Theora (OGV) support, which will affect some of our legacy videos that we host here. Those are the video blogs where there is the option to switch to .OGV 720P for legacy computers such as notepads and Raspberry Pi’s.
Chrome stopping JXL in its tracks because fuck antitrust.
We didn’t give up on JXL. We’re not giving up on OGV either! Because there are people who legit thanked me for having something that could run on their Raspberry Pi.
Sure, it would be nice to reallocate space on our server for bigger/better things. But for now, nothing has changed.
