PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

In order to keep the wonderful entries from slipping to the second page, where they may be missed, I have created a web page to keep them all together. If you want, e-mail me your entry at volmel@yahoo.com just in case I miss the story here on the boards. If you find any errors, don't hesitate to point them out to me!!

Mel, you da bomb. It's so crisp and clean. One teeny-weeny itty-bitty request? Can you put links within the stories to the threads they originally appeared in? Dunno if they'd actually get used or not, but it'd be a quick way for folks to go give their comments.

Well, of course I like the site. Who doesn't like to see their name in Teal? Let me clarify though, this is not MY story contest. This was just a crazy idea that I had and it has taken off. As of now, you have done more work than I have on this thing. Thank you Mellie, for an awesome and well organized site.

Okey dokey. On the website in each entry, there is a link that corresponds to that entrants thread here on Survivor Blows. Many thanks to Dave for suggesting it and for getting me out of frame hell

I think you'll like it cause then you can comment on the person's story after you read it, if you want.

Hey all,

Mellie caught me in BA's today and asked me if I could take over the site for a little while. Her mother is very sick and she needs to go be with her. At this point, she's not really sure how long she'll be away. For those of you who pray, please send out your prayers for Mellie and her mom.

In the meantime, the site will be at the following address:
http://www14.brinkster.com/dclapper/kismet/
All of the entries Mel had up are there now, and I hope to get caught up on the rest before the end of the day.

Mellie, we'll *all* miss you most of all. Take good care of yourself and your mom.

Hey everyone. Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers. I'm just home for a day and then back to my mom. She's in ICU about 6 hours away from me, so I can't get to a computer there. Basically, a series of freak accidents happened to her. She had a routine colonoscopy in which well, her colon exploded in 2 places. She vomited in her sleep and then inhaled it, so she has sepsis (sp) and pneumonia. What makes it even harder for her is that she was weak anyway from chemo from her liver cancer. She doesn't really know anything that's happening and is in her own little world in the past, so I'm grateful for that. I'm going up there again in the morning, so I'll miss all of you.

Thanks to Dave for all he's doing with this website. Love ya lots Dave, but you know that!!!

Hey Mellie!

Just tried popping into the bar real quick before my 10:00 meeting to throw a hug your way, but the bar was empty. I'm so sorry to hear all that's happened, but pleased that she has such a devoted daughter who can be there when she needs her. You didn't mention how you're holding up, but I know you're a trooper. Keep being there for your mom and make sure to take good care of yourself, too. It's easy to forget ourselves when taking care of loved ones, so be good to yourself, okay?

We miss you tons and can't wait til you get back, hopefully with reports of a healthy mom.

Just keeping this on page one.
Is there some way this site can be added to the lobby page on OT Forum same way the BlowsVivor site was added to the BV Forum?
Just thought I'd ask.

Hope Mellie's Mom is doing okay and not wearing Mellie to a frazzle. I miss that perky volunteer. Keeping Mel and her Mom in my prayers, vigils at Intensive Care can be so tough I know, most have happy endings though.

Hey gang,

Looks like the story site was getting hit so heavily today that it's run into bandwidth issues. I had no idea what my host's bandwidth restrictions were, and I'm more than a little surprised to be butting up against 'em. I'll take a look around for other hosting solutions after I put the boys to bed tonight. There's a fair chance I'll wind up moving the Storytime site yet again, since this is the host I use for my resume and portfolio as well, and they're showing the same bandwidth error message as the story site until the problem is resolved.

Sorry for any inconvenience (and thanks, Dabo, for letting me know that it was happening).

You're welcome, Dave. Sounds like the problem is at the host's end if it's hitting all your sites, hope they get it resolved.

30. "RE: Story Competition Website"
I think I figured out the problem (I hope). I'm limited to use of 16.7 meg of bandwidth per day. Which should be plenty. Except... as part of my portfolio, I made downloads of various Mariners wallpaper available that I had built when working on their site last year. A few of the wallpapers I had available weren't available anyplace else, both featuring Ichiro. Something tells me that with the Mariners' amazing start and the hero worship of Ichiro, word has somehow gotten out as to where people could find the wallpaper. I'm hoping to get at some actual reports of what used up the wallpaper, but in the meantime, I've renamed the wallpapers featuring Ichi and removed the page linking to the wallpapers in hopes that that'll take care of it.

There's just no way the story site could have been generating 16.7 meg of traffic in one day. Each page is only about 10k, so the page views in one day would have had to have been around 1670. Not likely. The wallpapers, on the other hand, ranged up to around 200k each, which would have meant about 80-85 people downloaded one of 'em today. No more free wallpaper from me.

Hopefully, this'll resolve itself in the next day or two. If the story site is still down by Saturday, I'll try to find another solution, even if that means moving the site altogether.

Sounds like you've got things well on the way towards fixed, Dave, but what an odd problem to have crop up! Guess it was good you were in charge of the storytime site when this happened, since you have other pages similarly plagued but you might not have found out quite as soon what was going on. Karma is working for you, buddy, and that's a good thing.

Just finally jumped on this bandwagon.
(pauses to tel Mel, that ny prayers are with her. Almost lost my own mother last Jan.)

Honestly, I was intimidated at first about the whole writing thing. I am not very good at this kind of thing.... but the challenge is eating me. Feel like I should take a chance and jump in. I finally caught some time here this am, so I was reading a few of the entries. I thought I would see what others are putting out there.

Feel kind of inspired...better get my fanny in gear. Love reading these thus far. It is such a precious thing to be able to read peoples creations.

Great idea.
