For those who don't know, yesterday Martin J. Pollard made the announcement that Outpost Daria would close down in June.

Nothing more to say other than that site will definitely be missed and all the best to Mr. Pollard.

Aw - thanks Jeremy!

OD was, IMO, the best Daria fanfic site on the web. Martin deserves a special place in the Dariverse. OD will be sadly missed.

If nobody else has, I took advantage of his generous offer and downloaded the zipped site. Should someone need it, get in touch.

Yes, well done.

Horribly enough, I had all three of my laptops and tablets stolen, which had both of my copies of OD on them. Did anyone else get a copy?

I did, but I don't know how much of my data limit's left for sharing it. Damn. I'm pretty sure the Wayback Machine has a near-complete copy of it online, though (though I can see why you'd want an offline copy). (I remember when I was redirecting the links on the wiki, and if memory serves me, I think the few fics that weren't archived are pretty easy to find elsewhere, like the few John Lane stories that didn't make it.)

Yeah, I did. Not sure what would be a way of getting it to you, though.
