Squidge.org INC Financials for 2023

Attached is the financials for Squidge.org INC for our first year of existence.  Of course we didn’t start taking official donations until mid-2023, and as such our bills were paid out of pocket until Squidge could support itself so the bills aren’t expressed in full-year context.  We’ll see that next year, as long as we […]

About 24 hours from the time this post goes up, Squidge.org will undergo routine Sunday morning maintenance.  SquidgeWorld’s maintenance takes about 45 minutes start to finish, but other systems including Squidge.org, Image hosting, and others usually have about 15 minutes worth of maintenance at most.  However, Sunday, March 24th’s maintenance will take longer.  And while […]

Unplanned Downtime

If you’ve tried to access any of the Squidge sites in the last 12 hours, you would have encountered issues. That’s because a tree came down last night and took down all of the power for the neighborhood. We were down for just about 12 hours. Everything should be back up now and is processing […]

Back Up – PARTIALLY

It came as a surprise that our 10pm estimate for power being back on turned out to be 8:30am.  Everything in the system should be up with the exception of SquidgeWorld Archive.  The server took a hit, and I’m resurrecting it.  Hopefully not more than a few more hours. edit: SquidgeWorld.org is now back up […]

PNW Storms

Please be aware that those of us in the Pacific Northwest are experiencing sub-freezing temps and sleet/freezing rain.  This can lead to power outages.  And if so, would mean that Squidge.org properties (Mailserver, Image hosting, SquidgeWorld, etc.) could go down without notice.

It’s Time for SquidgeWorld’s Year in Review!

I have to say that this is probably my favorite thing about being a part of Squidge.org and all the various entities. Sure, you can see the growth of fandom spaces and how people are using them – but when it comes to the year in review, this is where you can see the real, […]
