I've been using my host http://crystalunreal.com as my :

- portfolio and little UT tribute website
- File hosting.

14 September the domain will be no more. Due several reasons I have to let go of it. :cry:

So if you are seeking uploads of me, please report broken links. This can be images, maps, articles, pdfs..... ehhhh anything!
In the meantime, my uploads can be found here , my dropbox folder :

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/0l3mendxuztz ... 3lIXa?dl=0

It is empty thus far but as time progresses I will try to fill it to max. If it doesn't work or you can't access files let me know.
My signature will carry the link too.

Thought you all should know. :agree1:

Carry on.

Yes sure.

I started the domain back in the days with Chris (Christopher) to begin the CU project. We progressed well, but it was to much for work the 2 of us. Some time later we ended up in certain fights and arguing so I shut it down.(Damage control)
We ended up separate ways. I was still using as UT tribute website and portfolio. I tried to reboot it for the last time in a different way, but that didn't last long too. Too much work, less time to spend.

So the domain and it's original purpose is way to expensive for me now to hold up in the air, and the host's prices are risen out of the sky for me. It was cheap very years ago, but not anymore.
As you can imagine, I'm choosing a different option for now.
Also is concerning my future times. I may go back to school to get a complete retraining as a professional gardener, which duration is approximately 3 years. The boss is paying :D .
So it will be 4 days work, 1 day school. You get what I mean.
When economic stats rise I may get a new domain or something else as aproject.

So basicly, costs , work + school, and no use for it at the moment. It's sad, but the right thing to do now.


We'll see the future as open roadways. No idea where it leads. :wink:

You should at least keep the domain (not the webspace).
For example, I pay around 4€ each year for the domain http://www.papercoffee.de .

For both http://www.katran-online.com, http://www.katran-online.de together, I pay 29,76€ a year. But as I said it's just the domain no web-space ...both addresses are frame forwarding.

If you want to save files from the site before it goes, it will be useful to use the Web Archive so they are all captured.
http://web.archive.org/web/20180806162909/http://crystalunreal.com/
Often people only capture the pages and don't pull the files through.
