May 22, 2018: Our Chief Editor Needs our Help
Posted by JeffsFort
As most of you know, The Story lover has been the driving force behind the works of a very large percentage of our stories. Be it as head editor, continuity manager or as host. He is the glue that holds us all together. Well, today he does need our assistance. I know how badly he's been struggling to do the same level of work on some really outdated equipment. If you're able to help him out, you would be helping us all. This is what he posted on his own site. *HUGZ* Thanks for any help you can offer!
After a lot of mental deliberations, I have come to the conclusion that is time to switch from a Windows PC to a Mac PC. Since the majority of the Fort Family Admins use Macs this will allow me to use the same software that they are using. This will also allow me to avoid any of the issues associated with Windows Ten. The new Mac will give me many more years of writing and update this site.

May 21, 2018: Random News!
Posted by JeffsFort
Yup, this isn't your typical "come in and read stuff" news post. That's right! Every now and then I just like to toss out the "off the wall" stuff that people may let slide as the posting schedule succeeds in monopolizing the news feed. Not today!!!
So, I'd like to begin by reminding everyone that Friday, May 25th is the official "Towel Day" which is celebrated every year as a tribute to the author Douglas Adams by his fans. On this day, fans openly carry a towel with them, as described in Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy; to demonstrate their appreciation for the books and the author. The commemoration was first held on May 25, 2001, two weeks after Adams' death on May 11. I plan on going out and buying a brand new one this year as no one wants to be seen in public with a Tatty Towel!
I also need to remind people to mark their calendars as we have a Fort Family Favorite coming up real soon. Monday, May 28 marks the 17th anniversary of the "Shack Out Back - Random Cake Holiday" as declared by Comicality himself following a long discussion the night before in chat (and we all know what good comes from those <grin>):

That's right dammit! I said 'Random Cake Holiday'! Hehehe! Don't ask any questions, don't worry about the rhyme or reason WHY you should do it...just DO IT! We had a conversation in the chat tonight, and this lack of cake is just unforgivable. So today, Sunday, I want each and every single person reading this, to go out somewhere and find yourself a piece of cake to eat! I don't care HOW you get it, or WHAT kind of cake it is! But there are just way too many people who have gone TOO long without having a piece of cake!
You can laugh all you want! Feel silly doing it! I don't care! Whatever! Just go out, find some cake, and enjoy it for the simple fact that you CAN! And I'm not talking about some moldy old store bought sliver of cake that you can buy for a quarter at the counter of your local gas station! I mean actual CAKE! Go to a bakery, go to a neighbor's house, hit up the old lady that does volunteer work at the resource center in your area, bake your own and give half of it away to someone else who doesn't have cake, play your Cake cd on your car radio..whatever...but don't you DARE let the sun set without getting a taste of that sweet sweet cake goodness! C'mon...don't you want some CAKE??? I do!
The only time we get to have cake is at weddings, birthdays, Bar Mitzvahs, bachelor parties, and occasionally during some kinky sex fetish game with a stripper who doesn't mind getting covered in frosting. And that's just wrong! So if you needed a reason to eat cake, then here it is. It's cake day. GO! Get some! Enjoy it! Do it for the simple fact that you have absolutely NO reason to do it other than I told you so! Hehehe! Savor it!
I'm going to get mine as soon as I get up tomorrow! Believe me! Mmmm cake...
Spread the word!
So, we will be expecting to hear what cake you had in chat! It's ok to start planning now, I know I am!

Two new chapters have been posted for your reading leisure. Fantasy Faire chapter 5 and Gifts chapter 2 are both now live and waiting for you. Hope you enjoy them and don't get too mad at me for such a depressing common theme in both chapters this close to Mother's Day.
