Featured Friday: G.R. Holton's Science Fiction Site
Topic: Featured Friday

Like Science Fiction? Why not support a fellow Angelfirian by buying his books on Kindle, Nook, PDF, or Paperback or read his screenplay! G.R. Holton has a love of science fiction and uses writing as a form of therapy.


Not only has G.R. written science fiction books (e.g. Deep Screams & Soleri), but he has also written up a screenplay which you can read a synopsis of on his website, and he has also acted in "12 Angry Men" as Juror #5! Don't just take our word for it - you can read plenty of book reviews of G.R's books on his website as well to help you make the right choice of which book to read first! G.R. Holton has even created the book design for Cameron's A to Z of which all royalties go to Habitat for Humanity. 


Support G.R. Holton if you love Sci-Fi or if you just appreciate an outstanding person such as himself! Visit his site at GRHolton.com.

Featured Friday: Mymsin Japanese Shiba Inu
Topic: Featured Friday

I love Shiba Inus but I have heard that they can be hard to raise or live with. Shiba Inus are beautiful dogs which originate from Japan that have strong personalities. On http://www.mymsinshibas.co.uk you can read all about the webmaster's history with Shibas as well as great tips for living with and caring for Shibas.



You can also find out some interesting facts about Shibas in the "What If?" section. For example, did you know that Shibas are highly in tune with you when you're pregnant and may even know before you do!? Weird! And then of course, the best part of the website, looking at the many, many pictures of the Shibas! Have fun!

Update: FTP Outage and Denial of Service Attack
Topic: Angelfire News
My name is Chris, and I'm the general manager for Angelfire and Tripod. As some of you are aware, FTP is currently unavailable. I wanted to explain what's happened, why, and what we're doing next.
Angelfire was hit by denial of service attack early yesterday morning. Thanks to security measures we have in place, no member accounts were violated, and no Angelfire sites were harmed. However, the force of the attack did cause us to take certain parts of Angelfire offline, including FTP, which was the main focus of the attack.
We've been working through the night, and will continue working today, to restore full service to everyone. Thank you for your patience as we restore service, and for your patronage. 
As soon as we have an ETA on restoring full service, we will let you know.
Chris Cummings
General Manager

Featured Friday: SouthSide Boxers
Topic: Featured Friday

What's a better holiday treat than puppies? This week's featured site is a small kennel out of Mystic, Iowa and they have boxer puppies galore. You can tell from how the owners of SouthSide Boxers speak about caring for their Boxers and the puppies that they care deeply about the health and well-being of the dogs - the puppies are even raised right in their own living room so that they have an easy transition into a new home.


Possibly the best part of the website? The album full of puppies of course! You can flip through pictures of the two female boxers (Regina & Gracie), the male boxer (Cholo), and the many, many puppies. In the holiday spirit? Some of the pups had a holiday photo shoot which is a must-see.





To see all of the puppies and possibly get an adoption of your own underway, visit southsideboxers.org!

Featured Site: Karissa Harvey
Topic: Featured Friday

This week's featured site (although a little late!) is a stunning website - both design-wise and due to the beautiful artwork that artist and webmaster Karissa Harvey has created.


Karissa Harvey presents her solo artwork as well as her CV and a way to contact her right on her site. Her collection of work, "Sunbathers," is not only well crafted but has an interesting backstory about how she reimagined photographs that her grandfather took of sunbathers into large-scale full-color portraits. 


Take a look at Karissa's site and flip through the paintings and read the whole story about the sunbathers. Also, keep checking in because if we're lucky, maybe she'll add more artwork soon! 


Check it out at karissaharvey.com!

Featured Friday: Locksmiths in West Midlands
Topic: Featured Friday

"If you are trying to find a locksmith in the West Midlands, you have reached the right place" reads the first line of midlandlocks.angelfire.com. If you are looking for a nicely designed business website, you have also come to the right place.


If you aren't in the area and can't benefit from Wolverhampton Locksmiths' services, you can still admire and take a few tips from their website. The site has an easy to follow flow of information with the most useful information right on the front page (services and pricing). You will also notice their excellent use of keywords so that they are sure to boost their website's SEO.


The website is clean and simple, emphasizing what needs to be known and showcases the great work that the locksmiths do. The uniform size of the images makes them helpful to the overall design of the website and doesn't distract the visitor. 


All in all, midlandlocks.angelfire.com is a great website whether you want to visit it to find a locksmith or to copy their design techniques!
