TLO HSP Restriction
Aug 06, 2014 - 9:03 PM - by Dr. Bantham
It appears that TLO is either being attacked or is simply demanding a high level of resources from the Host Service Provider and the account has been restricted. The latter case does not make sense given the current traffic trends. I have reached out to technical support but the initial warning message I received was very ominous and the account is in jeopardy of suspension. I will make every effort to resolve the issue with the HSP, but I do have a backup of the site secured in the event of a worst-case scenario. If the site should be taken down at any point, don't panic and check back periodically. I have previously invested in a new version of vBulletin, but have been putting off the migration due to the incredible effort applied in the past relative to custom modifications. If necessary, I will abandon the frills in an effort to embrace stability.

New TLO Exclusive Interview -- "Vital Realities: A Conversation with Thomas Ligotti"
Jul 23, 2014 - 4:53 PM - by Dr. Locrian
Hey there, folks. Well, thanks to the patience and labor of Tom Ligotti himself, we have a new interview to consume--and it's over 5,000 words of riveting material which covers Tom's literary revitalization via physical and emotional trauma, a look at "Metaphysica Morum" from the inside out, and Ligotti's opinion on what makes for a good (and bad) interview.

Click here to read it.

Thanks again for your time and effort, Tom!
