Sector Disk's Gopher has been updated! My buildGopher script isn't automatic so Gopher wasn't yet updated to show that sectors are free now ^^;. Also more URLs have been converted into Gopher URLs!

Ooof apparently my Atlanta-based Vultr servers are down. This means Sector Disk and my e-mail server are both down for now.

I finally got a new battery for my old UPS, so the Sector Disk/Computer Club server should now stay up during power blinks! Hooray!

Also sorry for not being active lately (and also not saying anything)! I started working a few months ago as a PC Tech in the IT department of my old school district and have been running two clubs with events and meetings nearly every week and trying to finish up my degree. It's been a lot, but I've been working toward improving my mental health and also trying to bring some stability to my financial situation. I'm getting there! More phlogs and posts and COMmunications will come eventually :)

/Of course/ if any crazy rich person out there wants to buy Sector Disk at the original rate of $5 for all 2880 sectors (that's $14,400 plus sales tax), I will gladly personally fly and hand deliver the floppy disk and a flash drive with the VirtualBox image of Sector Disk to your house.

Just sayin ;)

After thinking about it for the past while, I've decided to make new sectors on Sector Disk free to claim and obtain. Thank you to all who bought sectors before to support the site; it quite literally would not still be up had it not been for your help. All paid sectors will be kept by their owners permanently for as long as the site exists.

To claim your sectors for free on a *real* 1.44MB floppy disk, please see the `Join` page at sectordisk.pw/.

My power and internet have been out for over 24 hours now thanks to Zeta! No damage otherwise thankfully. I really didn't expect a Cat3 to hit and knock me offline for so long. I've barely got cell signal, so I'm clawing at kilobits to be on Mastodon right now lol.

On the bright side, this is a great chance to see Sector Disk's beautiful maintenance page that kicks in when the Vultr server can't make contact with the real one ;)

OK. Technology restored to working order and audio seeming to work. I’ll do a test run of The Resistance during Open Mic (3rd time Lucky). Thank the powers of lessons learned for backups.
