In the event of an actual emergency...
I think one of the reasons I've been blank lately is the fact that I feel a bit stifled because of my bandwidth concerns. Looking at my stats, if February had a normal number of days, I would probably go over my limit. I'm working with my host to form some sort of plan that doesn't involve me shelling out another 20-50 dollars a month but once May comes around I'm not sure what's going to happen. I've tried making a few changes in things like adding no robots tags to the category and monthly archive pages. That way, someone coming here on a search doesn't load a whole graphics-laden-bandwidth-sucking page to find out that the extent of the info I have on the Superbowl Trailer is that I thought it "fucking rocked".
Anyhoo, I'm working on a backup plan. Last summer when the site went down? I wigged. It was like taking away my crack. I won't go there again.
No sir. *twitch*
A while back I registered krix.org so there's that. And yesterday I went ahead and registered keanublog.com. As of now, they are both just forwarded here.
But if something should happen and this site really goes down, remember those two names and I assure you something will emerge at one of them.
It's also possible that that once the renewal for keanuvision.com comes up next November, I will reduce it to a static wallpaper site and then split in two (kind of like Station) and make use of both of the new domains.
I have no idea.

Have you thought about moving the hosting for the site? I've been working with a host that does decent unlimited bandwidth hosting for darn cheap. I think I'm paying about $40/year to have my site hosted. It's less if you don't need all the stuff to support MT. I'll mail you the details if you are interested.
krix.org sounds like a lovely place for you to do more personal writing.
no emergencies allowed! but I shall remember ; )
Well, I don't really want to abandon my host. Aside from just outgrowing the place, I'm pretty happy with it. Plus she's a friend and I just can't bail like that.
Also, I'm on dial-up, and I don't know if I'm up to rebuilding.
I'm not making any changes at all until November unless it becomes necessary.
Which I hope it won't.
I'm still waffling on making a personal site/blog at krix.org.
My life is pretty dull. And the stuff that isn't, I don't know how I feel about putting it out there.
AAH! The thought of this site being shut down sends *shivers* down my spine... I love it so much, it's a little heaven, I feel so at home here. A while ago I believe Keanuette suggested that you added a paypal button for donations. This could be an option, you know, it doesn't turn your site into a pay-site, but it does give people the opportunity to help you out! I certainly would, this is one of the very few sites that I would actually pay for -a few dollars for a few laughs sounds like a good deal to me :-)
As for the personal blog, that's entirely up to you, obviously. But I kinda like the 'air of mystery' thing. Follow Reeves footsteps and remain elusive...
Krix: this might be my fault. I'll quit linking to your site and you might notice the spikes in traffic go away. sorry if it is my fault. your site rocks!
NO! Don't stop linking, LOL.
I luv legit traffic.
