Winding Down Old Website - in the with new

posted Sep 6, 2020, 3:33 PM by Nicholas Diak

My old google website is coming to an end. In a year it is supposed to transition to some other Google production, but it has become time for me to get an actual website to do writing at. I have a new website setup at - it's a work in progress as I migrate the main pages here over to there. I am not posting anything news there quite yet, as I don't consider the website really "live" - so news is still going here for the time being.

A few things to get caught up on:

Recorded new episode of HP Lovecast Podcast - it is on Gou Tanabe's adaptation of At the Mountains of Madness. It can be listened to here:

On the Scholars from the Edge of Time podcast we did an interview with Dan Rabarts. That can listened to here:

Also, I'm experiencing some website issues, specifically with the domain name. I'm currently working behind the scenes to make a new website using Wordpress, and I probably messed something up while having a domain pointing here or there.
