Actually, I should change my request a bit. I'm trying to build up my collection of E! fics.... any and all.... and was wondering if anyone would be willing to send me whatever stories they may have that aren't still floating around on the web or accessible via the WaybackMachine.
I actually have several stories that I only have the first part of, so I will probably be posting up here to see if anyone can complete the story for me when I find them.
Ray, I am currently in the process of cataloging all the Emergency stories I have collected. When I am finished, I will make the list available in this forum. As for Two Chickies, some of the multi-part stories in the zip files are incomplete. I have all the back-up files for the stories I posted on the site and they are available as "complete story in one file" documents.
Gentle reader, this now marks several times that you have had to make the rounds of the threads requesting copies of stories and zip files because your computer has crashed or eaten them, so a kind request of you is not too much to ask in return for all those fine folks who keep supplying you with copies and zip files...please, please, PLEASE save your copies/files that you receive to a source not on your hard drive, such as a flashdrive or CD or external hard drive. Do it the moment you get the copies/files in your email, that way if your computer crashes yet again or decides to eat your files, your Emergency! stories are safely saved to another source. And wouldn't that be so nice? Then you wouldn't have to worry about making the rounds of this story finders site once more, asking for copies of stories and zip files to replace your library. I believe other kind and gentle readers have made this exact same suggestion to you in the past, so perhaps it is wise to heed them, lest they eventually get tired of sending you items that will only be once more lost in a couple of months.
I agree. It makes a lot more sense (to me anyway) to back up the stories you have on your computer to a removable storage device (a flash drive or a CD). That way, you will have them if your computer crashes. I routinely back-up important files (including fan fiction) and have saved myself a lot of frustration and time. Backing up your files isn't that difficult and doesn't take much time. I'm willing to explain how to back up if anyone needs assistance.
All you have to do is set up the site and pay for it if it isn't free. That's it. If you are going to create a site that you want to put other's stories on, you'll need to contact each writer for permission before you can post their stuff. That's about it.
And after you buy the url, you'll need a place to house your new website. Some are free and come with conditions such as ads or limits on the size of things. Others charge a fee. My website johnnysgreenpen.com is housed at yahoo. You don't need to know html to make a website any longer. Many site hosts have gui interfaces to make the page. So there is a learning curve. If you have any other questions, you know where to find me.
