Perhaps it’s time to move on, dear readers. While I was housekeeping in the form of visiting my various e-mailboxes, I found that two of my earliest and therefore most well-known (at the time) email addresses owned by Yahoo and AOL, have been extinguished. Sure I only visit them a few times a year but alas, it seems I have left them too long unattended.

There goes my address book that was like gold to me, there goes the long and sexy chats I had with … neveryoumind, there goes all sorts of special thoughts and emails that I was saving – from friends who have left and friends who have stayed, among so many other memories. But most sad of all, I have lost my stories, my drafts, feedback, criticisms, praise and the kind words from women who wrote to me from everywhere.  I’m sorry I’ve lost you all.

Why don’t Yahoo or AOL offer reinstatement? Surely they can what with the terabytes of storage they offer for free these days. Why didn’t they email my back-up address to warn of the pending shutdown? Perhaps they did and it went to Spam. In the end, the cut was swift, shocking and clean. The loss is irrepairable.

So my darlings, if you were ever waiting to hear from me at lavliq@y****.com or evecho@n*******.net (now aol.com), please wave hell0 to me at the other place while I’m still there. If you want the new addy, leave me a comment. Otherwise, know that I missed you and that we were torn apart by the powers that could.

Evecho’s newsy bits

News, updates and links from the lesbian and publishing ‘verse that interest me, my current projects, keeping up with authors and sharing musings on middle-class life, gourmet adventures and comparisons between East/West perspectives. My opinions will likely be linearly logical and gayly bent, as they tend to be.
