  • Added Mistress Daria's Dungeon to the Links page.
  • Reorganized the What's New archives for 1998, 1999, and 2000.
  • Something that's been long overdue: "Featured Authors" are now called "Recommended Authors," which is a less "loaded" (and more accurate) term for them.
  • Added Mike Yamiolkoski to the list of Recommended Authors.

August 2002
Aug 23 I had intended this update to be a lot bigger; unfortunately, I simply ran out of time to finish before leaving for my vacation. For that, I am truly sorry. But, fear not: I will be returning for the Labor Day weekend, where I'll have lots of time to add all the stuff I've received over the past week (as well as the stuff I know I'll get while I'm gone). It's good stuff, too!

And so, it's off to Lost Wages I go... hopefully, my wallet won't be too much lighter when I return! <grin>

July 2002
Jul 31 There's more fanfic on the way. I wanted to add it tonight, but unfortunately I left the updated copy of my fanfic database at work. :-( Good news is, I should be able to get them online within the next week (possibly sooner).
Jul 26 I have more fanfic to add, but I figured I'd get an update out to you guys before the weekend. Rest assured, authors, I haven't forgotten you.
Jul 18 Note to those sending me fanfic: if you don't provide a description, your story is going to be listed with "(no description available)". Same goes for an e-mail address: if you don't tell me to include it, it won't be. No offense, guys, but my time is very limited and this site takes a lot of work to maintain, and I don't have time to do your work for you.
Jul 3 Bacner, MFC, Ben Breeck: yours were the only fanfic that I did not have time to post. Profound apologies! I will attempt to have them online before the week is out (Friday night, preferably).

June 2002
Jun 24 There's more fanfic on the way, but I wanted to get this update out right now due to the release of fanfics from veteran authors Kara Wild and Canadibrit, who've posted long-awaited new chapters to their respective series. Enjoy! (Another update should [hopefully] be online this weekend.)
Jun 9 This update features a special treat: legendary fanfic author Invisigoth Gypsy's entire series of stories, including her now-classic "The Disney World Story." For easier reading, all stories have been converted to HTML, and the seven-part "Disney World Story" has been merged into a single seven-chapter story. Enjoy!
Jun 5 I've received some new fanfic that still needs to be posted. That will happen this weekend; I wanted to get the exciting news about the IICY DVD release and Daria's debut on The N to you first. This weekend, I promise!
  • Added a new fan fiction topic, Alternate History, showcasing stories that depict the characters in timelines that are different than the one depicted in the show. Some characters are missing or changed, other events may or may not have happened... you get the idea.
  • Added to News: info about the upcoming release of IICY on DVD.
  • Added to News: info about Daria in second-run syndication on Nickelodeon's sister channel The N.

May 2002
May 10 o/` Today is my birthday... I'm gonna have a good time... o/`

April 2002
Apr 17 Yep, it's another long-delayed update, just in time for some relief from those nasty taxes. (Apologies for the huge delay between updates; life kinda got in the way again.)

March 2002
Mar 3 HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DARIA! It was on this date in 1997 that the first episode, "Esteemsters" (#101), premiered, beginning a five-year celebration of angst, irony, and sarcasm.

And just another reminder: PLEASE DO NOT SEND FANFICS TO ME AS A DOC FILE! The last thing I need on my computer is a virus that's piggy-backed itself onto an unsuspecting Word document, thanks to Microsoft's marvelous security features (sarcasm alert!). Only plain text, HTML, or a URL to your story is acceptable. Microsoft Word has had the ability to save documents as TXT or HTML ever since Word 95 (see below), so please use it!
