Question Re: Author Lazuli.Kat 
4th-Jan-2011 05:04 pm
Okay, I feel like a total dork, but ... someone sent me a message regarding this issue, and um ... my computer burped and I lost it.  If you read this added note, could you please resend the message, so I can reply?  Thank you.

:::wanders off muttering about computers and inept operators, namely herself:::

Since she writes Spander, I thought it might be okay to ask this here.  Does anyone know if her fiction is hosted anywhere other than her website, which is btopenworld?  For some reason, my computers (yes, both the desktop and laptop) suddenly refuse to access that website, and I've had a hankering for her stories Repossession, Hunger, and Manifestation for a month or more.

So, if anyone knows another place I might find those stories (and any others by her) I'd greatly appreciate it.  Even just an email addy where I can write her would be, as Xander would say, of the good.

Thanks, everyone.

She's also archived at The Spander Files:

As far as I know Laz's stories are only on her website. Any other sites like Spanderfiles just link through to the website and don't actually host the stories.

Looking on The Attic, the email address for site feedback is

Good luck, hon!

LOL ... you're talking to possibly the most computer illiterate, technology challenged person around. *g*

Honestly, I tried doing what you suggested, but couldn't figure out how. After about an hour looking through 'options' I finally gave a mental scream and quit.

But I do thank you for the suggestion. I suppose I could call my isp tech guy and pick his brains for a solution. :)

can you not go thru http://excessant.com/ which is the Tales from the Attic site? I thought btopenworld was a backup site for it. I could be wrong but you could try it.

sorry forget the above post. don't know what I'm talking about.

Found her at The Spander Files, at least I think that it's the same author...


...feel free to ignore if it's not the right author.

Right author, but the stories aren't archived at Spander Files. They just link to her site, which neither of my computers will access. Hm, maybe it's my isp that's the issue? Could they have made some changes that are affecting this? Yeah, I know - grasping at straws. :)

Could be an issue with the computer not liking the site. Did get a 404 on the first story I clicked but on the second got this site (which is the one you've already mentioned being the one the computer won't load) http://lazuli.kat.users.btopenworld.com/welcome.htm

Well it took me the story and I clicked to the welcome page. Not sure what could causing the issue the computer not accessing the site. Did someone suggest adding the site to the safe list on your computer...or it could have been the browser. I dunno, I'm pretty much a techno idiot. It's a good day when I remember how to burn a disk from iTunes. Sorry couldn't be of more use.

Hi I think that was me I have those three stories saved to my hard drive and was wondering if you would like me to email them to you?

I thank you for the offer, but it's now unnecessary. Finally found a site I can access! Yay! :D
7th-Jan-2011 01:31 am (UTC) - Mirror site...
...as the main one is often more trouble than it's worth!


Zips of the stories can be found here:

Thank you!! This worked, although it didn't at first. I was seriously contemplating tossing my 'puter out the window. Then I decided perhaps running my antivirus, antimalware, etc, and running disk clean and shutting the puter down for a bit might be a better solution.

After that, excessant came up no trouble, and I happily downloaded the zip files, which I promptly saved to pdf files, just cuz I like it better that way.

Although the other site still won't come up ... but at least I can now read the three stories I love, with no problems. Whenever I wish, even. :D
