Wow. thamiris had some amazing friends in you folks. I've just tallied up the donations to this point, and they already total $341.

A few of you stated your preference between having any surplus from your donations go to Odysseys and Ecstasy or to the Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation, and the rest didn't specify. Alison and I were going to assume that we could put the rest toward O & E, with the understanding that, if we could not sort out how to support the Web site, the remaining money would go to the RCHF instead. We would post an update when we put the money toward either cause so that you'd all know exactly how much was going where.

Anyone who'd like may continue to contribute to the fund, with the knowledge that the money could be applied as outlined above. Please, feel free to post any personal tributes to thamiris here in the community as well, like I mentioned earlier.

On a parallel note, par_avion made a proposition in a comment to my earlier entry. If we fail in our efforts to find a way to maintain O & E, we -- everyone here -- could also use this community as a repository for the stories, essays, and other materials Thamiris had posted on her Web site. We likely wouldn't be able to duplicate the style in which they were posted, but we could at least preserve all her words from there, possibly with screenshots of how the pages originally looked. Thinking about it, I suppose, if donors were in favor, we could make this community account Permanent for that purpose as well.

Share your $0.02 on any or all of this.

I have plenty of server space at my domain, I'd be more than happy to keep O&E at no charge. I pay for it whether I use it or not!

However, the ideal situation in this case would be a redirect from the old site so various links don't go dead. Negotiating just a redirect should be easier and less expensive that keeping the entire site there.

This is a lovely project, and I'm glad that Tham's LJ style (which was my handiwork) will stay with her words.

That's a wonderful offer. Thank you.

Would a redirect require that the slashaholics site itself -- not specifically O & E, but the whole site that currently hosts that sub-site -- stay intact? I want to make sure we're prepared, if the owner wants to take down the entire current hosting site.

i'm so glad the account is already permanent. it seems a wonderful idea, to me, to apply some of the money left over to the hospital foundation. (hadn't realized i was supposed to specify.)

Is Odysseys and Ecstasy gone now? I was just trying to find the God/Lucifer slash by Tham to show a friend, and I can't get the site to come up. :(

Nope, O&E is still there and fully functional. A comm member named Tehomet bought the domain name from the previous owner who'd allotted the space for Tham's works, and Tehomet is maintaining it indefinitely for all Tham's fans to visit. The URL still seems to work for me, as does the "In Principio" link.
