Packing up the website! Farewell, sff.net

You probably won’t notice any difference, really. But for many years, my websites (robinhobb.com and meganlindholm.com) have been hosted on Sff.net   And sadly, Sff.net is closing up shop. I want to publicly thank them for late night instant tech help. For walking me through setting up my email, not once but several times until it… Continue Reading

My TV viewing here is limited… Continue Reading
