Bunny Says Ficlets.com is Fine

I was sick in bed, and just kind of paying attention to e-mail as it came in on my pants mac. I’d had a fever for days and digestive problems I wouldn’t wish on Satan himself.

And then, panic started rolling in, through e-mail, through twitter, through blog posts, through facebook… all about the fate of one little domain… ficlets.com. I would have gotten worried too, but I couldn’t keep my “tank full” or even get the gauge to go above E so I let it sit.

But, Bunny told me I had to say something because people were freaking out over a small thing – our domain name. I told Bunny he should say something, as I was too busy admiring the tile. So, excuse me, here’s what Bunny has to say, “Don’t worry, gentle ficleteer, for ficlets.com is renewed for another year. It was set to auto-renew anyway, and would have, on the appointed day. There are threats that ficlets faces (they abound in many places). When the Bunny knows more, or Kevin is better, one of us will let you know, maybe in a letter.”

    We did have the dark ages, but it is all good now. So cool, the bunny is so cute! =D Good to hear from ya.

  • from wytherwings:

    yay! It’s Kevin!! It’s so great to hear from you!! Yah, we did have a dark age… but I was gone for most of it.
    oh by the way, have you heard of nerdfighters? Sorry, that’s random and off-topic. I’m just wondering.

  • from Music-Hearted:

    Great to hear from you! And I’m glad to hear that we have more time with Ficlets.

  • from g2 (la pianista irlandesa):

    Woo! My mind is at ease, especially hearing the relieving news from someone who knows what he’s talking about. does a happy dance (cute bunny, by the way!)

  • from OrangeOreos:

    Well, that’s a relief. Thanks for the news, Kevin and Bunny.

  • from THX 0477:

    Hilarious way of getting the news out. But I suppose we’re all screwed if the rabbit dies.

  • from Kevin Lawver:

    Thankfully, spokesbunnies are a dime a dozen. So, if Bunny dies, Bunny 2 will hop right in and take over. You probably won’t even notice.

  • from Jenunique:

    I see I picked the right day to check in. :) Internet “exploder” 8 and I are not friends (and on the verge of becoming enemies), so I am trying my best to get chummy with the new Google browser, (which seems to agree with Ficlets.com much better than IE8 .) Anyway, great to see you are still looking out for us, even though you seem to have a bad bug, and unfortunately it is that time of year. Feel better soon!

  • from SaveTheUnicorns:

    Hey! I really liked your story! It would make my day if you read my ficlet, titled “Residing Dreams.” It has many chapters, and it is coming along quite nicely. One tag for it is residing dreams. So just type that into the search box and all of my stories will come up. Don’t forget to leave a comment! I hope you enjoy my story as I have enjoyed yours. Happy Ficleting! TTFN .

  • from uselessness:

    I haven’t done any ficleteering in a long time. I hope the sense of community I once felt here comes back soon. I miss this place! Thanks for the post, Kevin.

  • from Mask By The Moon:

    Oh, fun way of saying everything’s fine. =hugs Kev and pets bunny= thanks for saying it!

  • from Tad Winslow:

    I’m strangely compelled to sequel this and continue the story in some very odd ways… maybe if I’m up 2 it. Glad to be back on ficlets and thanks for the note Kevin

  • from N555champ /\and/\ X-Ninja :

    I just ate a live human.

  • from black dog 724:

    uh, is it a bad sign that the bunny bears a striking resemblance to a certain killer death rabbit? i mean, it is bearing good news and all, but still…that rabbits dynomite

  • from Rae Belkcit (LoA):

    What is a pants mac?

  • from It's Melia:

    Don’t suppose there’s anyone that can be contacted to fix the openid login issue that’s buggering people’s attempts to login is there? Glad the domain is safe and all, but I wish someone would take this place over to fix stuff and carry on improving it.

  • from ALRO613 ♪ LoA ♫:

    ehhehe… i stand vindicated.
    I never panicked for a second.

  • from chakatreatmentson!(LoA):

    I didn’t even know domains expired…also where does one acquire a ‘pants mac’...the guy at best buy looked at me funny when I asked…
