Friends for Al Skalicky

Al for 28

We’ve set up a new website for the Friends for Al Skalicky. We’re also working with them on their social media platform. Al Skalicky is a former Agriculture teacher from Bolivar Missouri. He’s running for the Missouri State Senate District 28 seat left open by Mike Parsons.

He has a lot of good ideas for the state, and we’re proud to be working with him to get his voice out there.

Deck of Many Things

Over on our Open Source site, we’ve released a new piece of Open Source Software – The Deck of Many Things.

New Privacy Feature

Qiwi Trails Hosting is now upgrading their domain service feature to include automatic Domain Privacy. ICANN requires certain information about the person/organization registering a domain be made public. From now on, all of our domains will be registered via proxy to protect your user information. (You can choose to opt out of this during sign up if you would like.) We hope that this will give our users some peace of mind when choosing to register their domains with us.

Thank you.

Farewell to Furnarchy

In 2009, Furnarchy’s old website, Heroin Puppy, went offline. I contacted a guy with the online moniker of “Cluracan”, and after a bit of discussion, he handed over all of the source files he had for Furnarchy, DreamNova, and his developer’s site. Since then, Eric and I have been working on keeping Furnarchy running with the latest changes to the Furcadia client.

In that time, we have seen DEP take some of the best parts of Furnarchy and put them into the client. For a myriad of reasons, not the least of which includes the current environment of Furcadia, we have decided to end our work on Furnarchy.

This is not necessarily the end of Furnarchy, however. We released the source for Furnarchy to GitHub. Any intrepid young developer with an interest in maintaining Furnarchy can go there and retrieve the source. This website will be here, with the Dev Documents, for a while longer – another year, at least. The Forums will be set to “read only” at the end of April.

I want to personally thank everyone who helped us with Furnarchy, but there are too many names to mention. So, I’ll just try to remember everyone, and if I get it wrong, you can yell at me in-game, or on the forums: Manivo, Amfortas, Salias, l33tson, Bahamut, Lothus, Tape, Gerolkae, Koolpin, zSpon, 93705, Ceus, Shaun Dreclin, xPi, Blizz, Nijumi, Kragamore, Joantha, Doctor Zoidberg, and the Wisdom Tree pals we can never forget. (Especially Crucified. I know he loved me so much it hurt his insides.)

And, of course, Cluracan.

It was a wild ride, and I appreciate the learning experience that Furnarchy brought. It will be missed.
