Hosting & Downtime

Apologies for the recent downtime (a few hours… okay, all day, March 20th). This site is currently hosted on a DreamHost VPS which, along with a huge chunk of their network, went dark due to the ironic interruption of their uninterruptible power supply. All the gritty details and play-by-play on the DreamHost status site. Our plan […]

Cities in the Sky: Revealing lost chapters in Science Fiction History

Crowd funding is an amazing concept and phenomenon because it puts the financial viability of a project into the hands of people who care.

Bookish Resolutions

This past weekend, I was desperately reading books (finishing 5 in total) to bring myself up to my 2012 goal of reading 100 books. I was so determined to reach my goal that I visited a local bookstore and read a children’s book. I’ve been told I read fast like a freak, but this was […]

The Tech Behind GeekyLibrary

Typically self-congratulatory blog posts about all the cool visual things that will make you–the reader–better off accompany website launches such as this one. One of my colleagues may yet write that post. I am not. I am writing a blog post about all the cool stuff that you don’t necessarily see. Or the stuff that […]

Geeky Pancakes
