Hello proserpine.

Sad to say I think the kt is done. Simon took it over several years ago and did a good job. He's said there's a problem with the site and he can't figure out what's wrong and nobody can get in anymore. There had only been about 6 or so regular posters so I think it was inevitable. It is very sad to see it go as it was the only place I saw a couple people.

That's too bad it's sad to see more and more of the old internet just disappearing with only the wayback machine to visit it

While there are Pern facebook pages, you can't follow a thread on a particular subject easily and it's near impossible to find past conversations. I much prefer the bulletin board format.

Ten years after Anne's death I also took my Pern website down. The joy of maintaining it had gone.


There are a few (very) active facebook groups now, a younger generation needs to carry the torch. I know some of the old regulars also visit one or more of the FB groups. I do :-)

I only come here, one other site and regular Facebook. I've never joined any group pages. The little bit I do takes up enough time.
