Welcome to the echoverse! Greetings and salutations, fruitcake. My name is echo (with a lowercase e) and I'm the chick behind all of this nonsense. Nonsense = various domains, sites and other endevours listed here. I suppose that makes this a site collective — how trendy of me! Unless collectives are no longer trendy! If that's the case, how old school of me! Note: all links open in a new window. Second Note: This list is not yet complete. I have a tendency to procrastinate. Note the third: I've updated this page! Happy 2009, my dears!
echo (with a lowercase e) — the echoverse: all about e - This is my personal domain: no hosting, just all about me and my universe (as the title suggests). The domain aims to be "fully and actively echocentric" at all times, though I must admit the TLD isn't as as active as it should be. Every now and then I use my poor excuse of a PHP journal script to publish some thoughts. Feel like reading some craziness? I'm happy to oblige! Just don't blame me if you get lost over there; it's kind of linkless (and fancy free!) while I continue working on it. Date Opened: November 2004.
echoing: the network - Wonderful inmates populate the madhouse known as echoing.org. This was my first domain and I intend to keep it around forever, if possible. I originally wanted to register echoes.org, but the fantastic NPR radio programme, ECHOES, had already set up shop. So I chose echoing.org as it is (still) descriptive of my character. Though mainly a hosting domain, I still take pride in the creation and maintenance of my baby, even if said maintenance isn't regularly performed. ;) Date Opened: September 2000.
6:42 echoes - I love echoing.org, but I was still after an "echoes" domain name. I was fortunate enough to acquire (and keep) echoes.nu. Hopefully this one will be around forever, too. Providing space for talented people makes me happy, therefore I've turned this into a hosting domain as well. Date Opened: November 2000.
echoic; ping! - Currently my little playground for experiments in PHP scripting. For a very long time, echoic.org has been "the epitome of procrastination". I originally obtained it from one of those free domain name companies (Namezero, maybe?) that were around back then. Liking the name so much, I went ahead and paid for the registration. Having two other domains already, I wasn't quite sure what to do with it. As a result, I used it to offer free e-mail accounts through everyone.net. That's now a thing of the past. In the near future, I will use it to offer paid hosting accounts - finally the domain has purpose! Date Opened: November 2000.
dot org: the ring - Dot Org is a webring that was developed and designed to connect well-maintained personal domains (which have the TLD .org, of course). Code checks happen as frequently as possible to ensure the ability to navigate the ring with ease and minimal interruptions. Date Opened: August 2001.
.nu waves webring - .Nu Waves is a webring that was developed and designed to connect well-maintained personal domains and hosted sites (which have the TLD .nu, of course). Code checks happen as frequently as possible to ensure the ability to navigate the ring with ease and minimal interruptions. Date Opened: January 2007.
hype!! - They are everywhere! What are they? Site directories. I decided to manage one to assuage my guilty concience. I can be so flighty at times that I don't keep links updated. Come on in here and list your site. Why not? Date Opened: October 2005.
swarm: the vs.hive fanlisting - The vs.hive Fanlisting is part of the "official" fanlistings for all sorts of things (http://thefanlistings.org). This one happens to be for Dee's PHP/MySQL script, vs.hive. Are you a fan of the script? Then join the fanlisting! Date Opened: November 2008.
can you feel a little love? the exciter fanlisting - The EXCITER Fanlisting is part of the "official" fanlistings for all sorts of things (http://thefanlistings.org).

come with me... the singles 86>98 fanlisting - The fanlisting for THE SINGLES 86>98 is part of the "official" fanlistings for all sorts of things (http://thefanlistings.org).

lovelorn nymph: the official echo namelisting - The Echo Namelisting is part of the "official" namelistings for names (http://thenamelistings.org). Is Echo your name? Know somebody with the name?

like a sneeze - This is a little haiku project. I originally started it sometime in 2004, but sort of abandoned it except for the occasional post. Because of that, the opeing date has been changed. Presently "like a sneeze" is in limbo while I catch up with other stuff. There is still some layout tweaking to be done, and the right script to be found, but I'll get to it... Once I get it back on its feet, visitor submissions are not only welcome, they are also encouraged! Date Opened: July 2005.
thank you, dad - This is the permanent address for the little "thank you" devoted to my Father. Date Opened: December 2005.
transmissions from the blue cell - This is what I use to post thoughts, ideas, random nonsense and sometimes coded messages to myself. It all happens when I am unable to get out of bed, so I use the wonders of technology to spew my craziness in yet another spot. Date Opened: January 2005.
scatterbrain: collected echoes - This particular area grabs the RSS feeds from many of the online journals I have, provided said journal has one. I have yet to do something interesting with the layout, plus the title and URL aren't set in stone. It's another work in progress. Scattered. Maybe I should call it scattered because I am! I suppose we'll see... Date Opened: January 2007.
i adore... - Trendy, again. Yes, I've finally decided that the 2 fanlistings I belonged to were out of place at echoing.org. After all, that is a hosting domain and echoverse.org is the me domain. Hence the gathering of fanlistings I've joined in its own place. (People call them "fanlistings collectives".) See echo hop on the bandwagon; watch how I go through every category at official fanlisting sites and sign up! Date Opened: September 2005.
inquire within: ask me ask me ask me - Just a small spot for anyone to pose me some questions. I'll answer whatever you ask, no matter how bizarre or mundane it is. Go ahead and query my brain. [This site is a merging of two former question areas: pry on echoverse & the fuq on echoing] Date Opened: September 2006.
love, echoing.org - just a little space to house links to people and places I dig. Date Opened: March 2006.
eon ; e - on - echoverse - Talking, talking... Sometimes you just have to "call it in." This area of the echoverse picks up where my (no longer) paid livejournal left off, phone-posting-wise. It's reserved for voice recordings, at least in theory. There could be text accompaniment as well, depending on the situation. If you feel like hearing me (and/or other persons within my universe) talking, you can find nonsensical recordings here. Date Opened: July 2006.
