Ms. Thraam, Webmeistress for the Choronzon project, has finally pulled her ass out of her head – much to the relief of CHORONZON.
O involvers and involvees, from the inner-circle Resonants thereof, all the way down to the merely half-curious or even completely accidental passer-by: she says to thee: Hold on, wouldja, for just a wee bit longer, por favor?
Having waited this damned long for something to happen in the way of even a single update to the Choronzon project site for half a decade, you would have seen it, over that time, continue to remain frozen as it appeared in the autumn of 2006: exactly as it had looked when her “uncommon outlaw marriage” went south, as though this had somehow taken all her ability to recognise HTML and CSS, and operate visisofts and audiosofts, “southward” along with it…
Will you please be just a teeny bit more patient, since you’ve already waited THIS long? Just hold on during the actual process of pulling the look, content, linkage-methodology and device readiness up to speed with the surrounding internet?
CHORONZON and his paramour, and other Partners-in-Creation, can now release a relieved sigh that Ms. Thraam has not died, or remained in walking-wounded condition, and can rejoice that not only will this site return to activity, it will be greater activity than before, owing to better mental state, easier to use software…and to that OTHER big change?
That would be that instead of being just one site, it’s going to be three, now: CHORONZON, after all, does have that thing about triplicity. Ergo, two newly-added domains will now form the Choronzonic Triunity – as soon as they become what they’re supposed to be.
There are still questions to be answered and changes to be made that Der Webmeistress doesn’t know jack about yet, but it’s about time the courage struck strongly enough to tear down completely, and rebuild on flat foundation, what WAS here before.
Essentially, the vault, museum, collection of writings and art by Project members and outsiders alike will reside at the choronzon.info domain, while choronzon.net will be the ground upon which to build a public forum – a true DisLodge at last, along with collaboration software. And this, the .org node, will be the blog, the tunnels to finished workings, and the place where a giant xenodimensional fungoid-looking thing casts its pods into your ear-buds. Yes, there’s access to BlogCast here, so finally a “Radio Free Choronzon” can exist…being that it is, after all, “free” of anything to do with a “radio”…and is instead connected to slabs and bigboxes and whatever hardware you’ll be using in ten years.
We’ll be looking to bring the Project to the ever more mobile net, and have “slab-friendly” versions automatically come up if you’re accessing these links using a slab – whether it be a simple browser on a mobile phone with net capabilities, or an Apple or Google-based ‘smart phone’, or an iPad…whatever the capacity and speed, they’re all slabs. And if you don’t already have one by now–chances are you will soon. So this is important.
It’s hoped that all of this Changing and Arranging won’t force us to relinquish the arty appearance the last site had. Ms. Thraam has an unswerving disgust for the LOOK of most so-called Web 2.0 sites, but it cannot be ignored any longer that the things they do need to be done here or CHORONZON will be lost in an ever-more-crowded web.
He’s not having any of that.
