We've Gone Cloud!

BigCloset has Officially completed it's Cloud-Transition!

This isn't a fully virtualized cloud for BigCloset, but more of a hybrid-cloud setup where we still have multiple physical database servers that are clustered together for replication and performance needs while the front ends, the bits that compile the data from the database and make the pages you know to be "TopShelf", are fully virtualized with Scalability, Stability, and Redundancy in mind.

Stuff Is Broken...

I know most of you are going to look at the site and be like "No shit Sherlock", but trust me when I tell you that you have no F'ing clue how broken shit is.

What we have now, is probably what you will see for the next couple days. My days are taken up by something else, but don't think I'm not putting my whole into getting BigCloset back up and operational, I am.

I did a lot of sleeping yesterday because after 38 hours or so, you need to sleep...

I will get shit straightened out, I promise but please bear with me while I do so.


Merry Christmas to US!

Merry Christmas Everyone! Presents are here!

Well let me clarify, our 4 new servers are here!

I will be dragging a friend with me to do heavy lifting, but the servers are headed to the Datacenter in Bridgewater, NJ tomorrow.

Over the next several days I will work on imaging them and spinning up a database backup, and then transferring load to the new MySQL Cluster. After that I will work on building the new front-end cluster and move that live, and in the process I will be re-configuring the existing servers for Tertiary services.

Contests and Other Features


Since everyone else seems to be throwing updates about themselves and their writing thought some may appreciate it if I did the same.

Circumstances in real life that brought about the short story, "The Changeling," really put my muse into a tailspin. I could not concentrate on any of my ongoing stories for the longest time and I refused to begin any new story until I had those complete.

Spring has, er bounced

Yep, its officially Spring here in the northern hemisphere, days are longer than nights, the temperatures are rising - well maybe and the land has shaken off winters cloak, except for the left over snow drifts and last nights frost of course.

By happy coincidence - I think, todays Gaby chapter, Awkward Feeling, has a somewhat wintry element!

when a story flops

Even the very best authors probably have at least one story in their collection that just ... isnt as good. Something between imagining the story and writing it down some factor gets left out, or something that doesnt scan gets added in, and it just ... flops.

So what does an author do?

Well, hopefully, learn from it.

So, as I am in that place with my last story, I'm hoping for some constructive criticism in the hopes that I might get better the next time.

"Attraction" 2017

I know there are folk on this site from all over the world, and I am happy to know you all.

Recently I watched a great Sci Fi Movie called "Attraction" made in 2017. I think it is Russian, and the CGI and all the stuff was great, in fact outstanding. If you get a chance to see it, you won't regret it.

I want to see it again, perhaps even purchase it.


A little blathering on about writing, stories, anxiety, depression and other joys...

This morning I was listening to an old song, Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here." And it made me want to post today. Not sure why, but it definitely made me think about posting something here today. Several weeks ago, I asked Erin to re-publish my stories. My old laptop's hard drive failed and took everything I'd written and posted here, and a lot of other material as well.

Chapter 58
The dance competition. Chief Peshlakai.

Last night had been our final barbecue for this trip. It had been fun, but we couldn’t talk with Dee because Ajie and I were with Mr. and Mrs. Fairbrother. And Dee was dancing tomorrow, and the Fairbrothers were some of the judges. We’d also had a pleasant talk with the Fairbrothers and learned why they were so interested in two spirit people. They’re one son was one.

Naainish had also had an interesting talk with us. More with Ajie than with me.

Right now my grandmother, aunt, Ajie and I were getting ready to drive to Taos for the dance competition. And we had to bring back dah díníilghaazh (frybread) for my uncle.

The Awakening

Part Two – Resurrection

Mike meets Vanessa, the mysterious person who's email address and phone number he found secreted away. He is shocked to learn of his secret past, forgotten because of his amnesia. Vanessa reintroduces Mike to his alterego Michele, who emerges like a beautiful butterfly from her cocoon.

Part Four – The Whore

Michele feels like a bird in gilded cage but surrounded by opulence and being forced to enjoy her captivity, she wonders how reluctant she really is to enjoy the pleasures forced upon her.

Thank you all so very much!


My first ever attempt at putting something out on Amazon continues to surprise me. With the wonderful community here, and some very special people who helped to push me forward, I thought that I would share a milestone.

A Rose in the Cracks has, just a few moments ago, logged a quarter million pages read in their Kindle Unlimited subscription service and their Kindle Owners Lending Library, which are both outside of actual book sales.

Last gasp of winter

Well I suppose it is technically still winter until Wednesday so this weekends snow shouldn't be such a surprise but even so, 15cm (6") of the white stuff is as much as any of the winter's previous deposits and despite the warnings plenty of peeps have been caught out - again!

I did get to ride yesterday but arrived home encased in ice and snow - the bike too was looking like it'd been to the Arctic rather than Sherwood Forest! But hey ho, Spring is in the air.

writing update

I just wanted to give everybody an update on where I am with my stories:

"Pathfinder": New story being worked on, going slowly, but hasnt stopped yet.

"E-Girl: the Gift" : might have a new chapter, but its coming to a halt.

"Branded": Totally stuck, actually hoping somebody might have a suggestion.

"The secret of MYTH": coming close to totally stuck.

and "By the rivers of Babylon": current chapter is grinding towards a point where I might have a new chapter, but not sure what happens after that.

The seduction: part 4

after Lauren.jpg

Chapter ten: Surprise!

It was actually almost six pm when Maureen returned after more than a solid eleven hours of hard work. She was exhausted. She opened the front door, dropped her bag and walked tiredly to the lounge, where she heard three girls talking. In her tired state she didn’t realise one of them was Steph. She looked in and saw a new French girl with Madeline and Bhavana, wondering where Stefan might be. Then the new girl turned around and her heart almost stopped. Stephanie! The girl she had been dreaming of constantly for the last 24 hours! Maureen immediately burst into tears.

Part One – The Woman In The Mirror

I am often criticized for writing the same story over and over (caught with consequences/reluctance) so here is a different story from me. Michael has amnesia and can't remember who the 'woman in the mirror is'. It will come as no surprise when he finds out, but it's a fun ride along the way.

Arabian Nights Chapter 03

Arabian Nights
Michele Nylons

Chapter Three – Deflowered

Transvestite captive is led to her fate by the beautiful black woman, Sarina. Michele is deflowered by her captors but cannot hide her own enjoyment of being taken like a woman for the first time.

The seduction: part 3

Chapter seven: dancing the night away.

After the desert Bhavana and Madelaine announced, that they all were going dancing now, an announcement that almost sent Stefan into a new panic. Usually those venues were incredibly crowded and more often than not quite rowdy. Madelaine noticed immediately that he was getting uncomfortable and gently took Stefan’s hand saying that Maureen didn’t know the venue, but that Bhavana and her were members at the Candyfloss, a members only night club for the LGBT community.

Puzzled and confused. Re: Like A Candle In The Wind story.

I just finished re-reading an older story by Lisa Sartori, Like A Candle In The Wind, and I am somewhat disheartened by the lack of kudos and comments.

Could it be that because it is such an older story and those who read it before haven't bothered to re-read it? Lisa has updated it quite a bit and there is a different ending.

It's such a wonderful story that SHOULD speak to the fantasies and dreams of a lot of us, and it's so well written with great characters and a solid, engaging plot, and it makes me wonder.
