Apologies for the mess, got the builders in!
Update 10th Nov 2013 (onwards):
Decided between other projects to finally revamp this place. Might take a while for everything, so please bear with me for a bit if you are a regular. If you are new, well, hey there! Umm, find a seat without concrete dust on it, I’ll get you a coffee in a sec…that’s if I can find the kettle in all this mess.
If you are curious how much I’ve got to do: despite not being prolific on here in for the past decade, a file search just gave me over 3,500 individual pages to convert over, and while a number are barely a few lines and need purging other, like the [ walkthrough to Wizardry VII ] run to a table heavy, 25+ page printout. Another of the ‘pages’ was nearly 90 A4 pages long before I broke it up. Might take a few days, eh! Well, months, possibly up to a year, there really are thousands of pages to work on!
Run by a (retired) computer expert, Ackadia is a family friendly site offering help and articles on web design, computers, general interest, education, RPGs and PC games. It’s been here for over 15 years since I started it in 1998 and in another 15 years, Ackadia should still be around for you!
There’s a saying I’ve always liked :
If you don’t ask, you don’t get.
I’m here to help if you need it, whether it’s asking me to get a move on restoring a section I’ve removed, giving you balanced advice on tech matters or anything else I cover here (or pointing you in the right direction if I can’t), or just dropping a line or reply via comments, Twitter or Facebook or the contact page.

As it’s a fresh start, I’ve replaced the shared server with a mid range VPS from Hostgator. I was disappointed that this option doesn’t include Fantastico, but it’s no great hardship to buy a licence and install it from the WHM panel. Did have a problem with .php sites not loading, but an hour of live chat with support traced it to permission issues and he normalized them. As you can see, I am up and running again. The blog and gallery need customizing and re-populating. but I’ll get on with that over the weekend.
(Needless to say they got put in, more less, and are being updated again now)
