O My minions and followers! As you may have noticed over the last
few months, the Lair has been closed to all. Fear not! I
have awakened from my long slumber to address your lack, and more.
the Lair has suited My purposes for many years, I find that I have the
need to shed My old skin and rise anew. It is a time of change,
and I think you will find those changes to your liking... Hear Me, and rejoice!
Lair has changed very little since 1996. The old design was
relatively difficult to navigate compared to the state-of-the-art.
The new site will have a more elegant style that will make the
treasures within easier to find. And be less grating to Me
personally, of course!
- Public content will be searchable.
- Minions will be able to register themselves through email. Followers will have somewhat more limited access to new features, but they need not wait upon My approval.
- Discussion pits will return. Minions and Followers will be able to discuss those topics I deem worthy.
- Chat will also return to the Lair, for both Minions and Followers.
- Minions will again be granted webmail privileges.
- Minions may share files with other Minions.
- Minions may create public and private photo galleries.
- Minions may 'opt-in' to various mailing lists. They may 'opt-out' at any time they choose.

- My writings will be made available via a new Web Book page. Minions will be able to comment.
