INFO RE: Submissions in Queue and Videos
To My Visitors:
You may have noticed there have been no new story, commentary, article, etc. submissions posted for 2 - 3 days on child-abuse-effects.com. I want you all to know that the website is NOT experiencing problems. All submissions continue to be in queue, awaiting my approval before they go live on the site.
However, my laptop—the computer I use to operate my website—had an all-out system crash 3 days ago. Everything on my hard drives were completely wiped out. While this "crash" in no way affects the operation of the site, I must now re-build all the page documents and templates I've utilized for creating website pages since January 18, 2009 using a back-up system. Please do not be concerned about the site; the re-building process is entirely behind the scenes and will not in any way affect the site itself. Rest assured, there are multiple back-ups in place to ensure child-abuse-effects.com continues to operate smoothly.
What this does
mean is that for the next several days, while I re-build behind the scenes, submissions in queue for stories, etc. will have to wait to go live on the site.
One other segment that will have to wait is the weekly video readings for On My Own Terms, A Memoir.
The videos I had ready to go for the next several weeks were not backed-up because I didn't have enough disk space to do so. (I have now purchased an external hard drive to back-up all future videos–lesson learned!) Last week's reading from chapter titled Mr Whitaker
will remain as the main video until I can re-tape and re-produce the video tapings that were lost in the system crash. Access to all readings previously posted can be found at weekly video readings
on this site.
I hope you will continue to submit your stories, commentaries, articles, etc. to child-abuse-effects.com. I will work diligently at re-building my documents and templates, and should be able to start posting the 9 submissions currently in queue within a few days. If you don't receive an automated notification of any new updates to the site, I suggest you go to my blog
in order to see if you may have missed any.
I thank you for your patience and understanding.Darlene Barriere
