New Issue Online

Try to remember the kind of September
When life was slow and oh, so mellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
When grass was green and grain was yellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
When you were a tender and callow fellow.
Try to remember, and if you remember,
Then comment.

Aw, nuts! This is the second month in a row that I haven't managed to read all the stories before they went into limbo!

Guess I ought to get back at it . . .

You do remember that you can download the index files from the apxxxv13 folder, right?

Oh oh! Did I screw my chances to get into the secret clubhouse already? It must be a Wisconsin dialect thing. I swear! I had just dropped into the mid-western vernacular for a minute. Hey, is that you looking out at me through the slot in the door, Iain? (whispering) Is there a chute beneath my feet to which you are holding the lever? :)

Oh, chute!

You need to have access to the FTP site... (ask Doc). Within the public_html folder, there is a folder called "issues", which contains a subfolder for each issue of the zine. The subfolders are named "ap<issue number>v<volume>" and contain the shorts.html, serials.html, features.html, editorial.html, and poetry.html index files.

The process for setting up an issue consists of creating a new "apxxxvyy" folder in "issues", then building and uploading the index files. When everything is ready, Doc copies the index files into another folder which makes them the "live" versions.

Re: New Issue Online

While access to the older index files would be nice, it's not necessary for me to fulfill my duties as the flash editor. It is necessary for me to have access to the flash indexes so I can update those though (they are currently locked for me.) It would also be nice to know where the email flash@aphelion-webzine.com is being forwarded to. It is linked to my name on the contact us page. I hate to think someone might try to contact me with it only to have the email end up in a black hole. I also wish I could stick and unstick the flash contest thread in the fun and games folder myself so I didn't have to bother Nate about it. Doc, any chance you could grant one (or all) of these wishes? ;D I'd be very grateful.

You now have powers beyond those of mere mortals, including the ability to change topic types, crush spammers (should any pass the e-mail-reply gatekeeper function) and generally be as big a nuisance as I am.

Wow, I was wondering why the hair on the back of my neck was standing up and my fingers were feeling tingly all of a sudden. Can I change my pet cat Cringer into an armored mount with this power too or is it more of a Neo/Matrix type of thing? Seriously though, thank you.

Erm... Is there any way I can get the red level uprade as well? I'd love to be able to actually change the url for Flash of Aphelion to something that actually works.

Re: New Issue Online

Apologies to all the other writers. I will get to as much as I can this month. I have a ton of nasty family stuff to do that if it had been taken care of properly would only cost the others a few hours and a few stamps. But instead, i have to travel many hours and chase down some paper work so one family member I assist will continue to have insurance. Then there is school and oh yes, work, the activity that pays the bills.

I just didn't want you all to think it was a one way street here. This is a great web site and I realize with all this effort on everyone's part, feedback is necessary.

The Mighty Rob must be appeased. It'll cost you... Two chickens! BWAHAHAHAHA!

Oh great, now I'm quoting 1st Season Saturday Night Live. Like there's that many Unusual Suspects old enough to remember the days when SNL had muppets. Let's attempt to place that into a more accessible vein.

"All powers within the Forums and the APOD ultimately descend from the whims of The Webmaster. Yea verily, and Lo! even, The Webmaster hath a whim of meteoric iron. Bright it shines, and tarnish not. But forged in the fire, such becomes the Mightiest of Engines. Stronger than Tullamore Dew, yet sweeter than Southern Baptist Church Lady iced tea, such gifts challenge the morals of ye mortals. Let not these boons swell thy head, lest thy hat become too tight upon thy brow. But use these gifts with wisdom, and no foe can gainsay ye. For ye have been blessed beyond measure, unto the ends of the Internet. As it is written in the Sacred Texts 'with great power comes great responsibility.' And thus it shall ever be. Amen..."

Maybe I could just buy a round at the Mare Inebrium and drink to his health. Shipping chickens might be a little tricky. :)

Maybe I could send a "poultry" sum or is the word "paltry"...OR then again, we could have "some" paltry instead...or is that "sum" poultry.
