Re: Shunting me off

This site is still shunting me off to the page that says I have made too many attempts to sign in and need to answer a question. We are talking once in three days or so. I find that it does that any time I log in on an incognito window. Most likely requires cookies, and incognito-mode won't store c...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 34

I actually used contests and joni. She responded to both messages and then informed me that she strongly prefers we correspond using one or the other as both go to her. Another lesson learned. Yeah, I sent my sub to both emails one quarter, and my story somehow got entered twice. I got an early R a...

How *NOT* to Handle Rejection

Some of you know that a few friends and I started a little magazine ( http://empyreome.com ) recently. Things have been great, but our site has already been attacked numerous times. About a month ago, someone broke in and injected malicious code into some pages. I was able to detect the attack early...

Re: Grinder Restored from Back-UP....

I also appreciate their free service. Having run several online services in my long history of various activities, this is a bit of a mess, though. Not being critical. Just observing. We've all (at least I have) failed to backup critical data numerous times.

Re: Empyreome Magazine

Thanks for the update. wotf007 I may well have some stories to submit to you by December. I've only got three finished at the moment, one's awaiting a verdict here, one I *should* hear back on by the 15th, and one is probably going to be in limbo for ages. Thanks, Peony. We'll look forward to them....

We are all aspiring authors with a few credits to our names, so we decided to become part of the conversation about what constitutes good fiction. And since I've been a professional w...
