  • 27 September 2006: Site moved to DreamHost; software upgraded to 1.7.1. Clean reinstall, see current events for more.
  • 22 June 2006: Several things: Software upgrade to 1.6.7. Also, links here should no longer point to /index.php. They will still work, but automatically redirect to /wiki. Also, the logo has been briefly removed, pending the design of a new one. Please mail me if you would like to do that. :)
  • 8 May 2006: Using the mod_rewrite module, the page now uses a "/wiki/" root directory, like Wikipedia. Old links and bookmarks won't break, but internal links now use the new path.
  • 4 May 2006: A new skin, using a blue, light-on-dark color scheme, is in the works. Try it out by switching it on in your preferences page (it will be default once the glitches are fixed, but I'm aiming for flexibility, so you can opt out). Also, MediaWiki 1.6.5 is out, but it's not quite worth the trouble.
  • 20 April 2006: The software was upgraded to version 1.6.3. This is a major upgrade, so be sure to tell me if you see anything broken. Also, the first item in this list is removed. In the future, the announcements are truncated to 6 items.
  • January 20th: I am about to upgrade the Wiki software from version 1.5.3 to 1.5.6 which was released yesterday. Naturally, I will back it up first, but still, I hope there aren't any problems.
  • The site was moved on December 5th, 2005, to the new domain encyclopedia.ermarian.net. At the same time, the MediaWiki software was upgraded from 1.4.7 to 1.5.3. Images should once again be enabled. I hope.
  • A site move is imminent, both to put a stop to the chronic downtimes and to finally gain image functionality again. I am checking out various hosting offers. The new domain will be ermarian.net
  • The wiki was restored without permanent damage on November 8th, 2005. However, images are now altogether disabled. An update to Version 1.5 of the wiki is imminent.
  • The wiki software got corrupted around September 16th, 2005
