Technical difficulties have paralyzed MixTweet to the extent that updates for the ongoing Twitter Role Playing have not occured for the last few days. We have notified the admins of the MixTweet site and await assistance. In the meanwhile, please look over our updated Twitter RP list in our Page at the top of this blog entitled: “Our Twitter Universe.” We have a few new pairings and quite a bit going on for the couples that are now wandering about the Point (as seen through Twitter). We are also looking into a means a writing out weekly summaries to keep you apprised of the things that happen in the Twitterverse, because even MixTweet is fast-moving and reading “backwards” is not always convenient. Those summaries could appear here or in some other form, but we are looking into the best means possible.
As it stands, Capt Jack Aubrey has all but technically proposed to Maddy Musette and Maddy has taken Jack back home to help her pack for her move onto the Surprise, as well as work out the best compromise for her continued involvement in her band. SID 6.7 has gone through a complete reboot and emerged as someone or something completely different…and its up to Ava James, psychology student and newcomer to the Point, to figure out exactly who that is. Meanwhile, she makes amends with Bud White, with whom she has rejected in the past in favor of SID and while Bud is left hopeful of their future together, he is without a lady of his own. Terry Thorne himself has gone from lonesome lad to finding the woman of his dreams in Shaina Yarborough, a widow with a ten year old daughter named Eden. He brings both to the Point to show them what life is like. Eden is invited to join a group of school kids visiting Cort’s retreat center, The Well of Hope, and he and Chloe are busy making sure everything runs smoothly. In the meanwhile, Max Skinner no sooner settles into a drink when he notices the new librarian, Laurie Drake.

We’re also wanting to direct your notice to two new links to the sidebar, just above the first picture. Actually, they are not so much new as revamped and reinstated after correcting some technical issues - A guestbook, and a gallery. We have quite a number of albums already installed, and hope to continue adding to them as the time goes on. You will have to become a registered member in order to view the pics, but once you do, you will have the ability to create your own particular album. Once you register, a notice will be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org to notify the admin for approval, and once that is done, you can view to your heart’s content!
We hope you enjoy it!

If you are breezing back in here to check on an update or perhaps read an older post, you will notice that the decor of the place has slightly…changed. This is special by the fact that we have upgraded our service with WordPress so there is more flexibility and personality to the place. After a few (spectacularly failing) attempts to outwit the programmers of WordPress, I’ve managed to keep things pretty much the same in format, only with much more pleasant (and larger) images to see (and I ain’t talking about the header.) We hope you enjoy it and find it useful!

Because of a file clean-up and rearrangment for the last update, the url address for gaslighthotel.net got slightly changed. If you note on the homepage, the file extensions read GASLIGHTHOTEL/home.html . This is now the current url, whereas before, the extension read “gateway/home.html”. I know it is annoying to have to go in and change a link; however, if you rewrite your link to the Gaslight to simply read : “www.gaslighthotel.net” - the link will automatically take you to the Home page, and the extensions aren’t necessary for your link and any future changes in the files (I dont plan any!!) will not affect your link.
I apologize for any inconvenience this causes.
