A very Merry Christmas to one and all!

December 23rd, 2011
Hi people! As we reach the end of 2011 rather quick nowadays, I'd like to thank you all for being faithful visitors to 'The World of Urusei Yatsura's Lum'. I was planning for some new goodies for upcoming week but due to a unsuspected HD crash on my development machine, I'm afraid I have to postpone this update to the end of January 2012. I'm very sorry for this but don't be afraid: nothing has been lost on the new goodies (they were on the local network) but first, I have to fix my machine to get things going.

In the meantime I'd like to which you a very happy Christmas, Quanza, Veliz Navidad or whatever you may call these holidays.

Today, I extended the hosting for another 6 months at my Hosting-provider. Due to the change of contract I've to extend it each 6 months to heep 'The World of Urusei yatsura's Lum' online. It's not a big deal. I'll receive every 5th month a reminder to pay for the next lease of 6 months.

I'm currently checking for a faster package within the same company which will give the site an enourmerous speed boost and extra webspace to extend the website a bit (read: a lot) more.

We'll see what will happen in the next 6 months. In the meantime: Enjoy!

Some sad news has been received: Cata has left the forums and has requested to drop the moderator-rights for her account. Too bad, because she's a good and honest moderator. I have no new plans (yet) to look for a new moderator.

Of course I hope she will visit us from time to time but it's sad to see someone leaving who has done so much good to the boards...

As we all know, AnimEigo lost it's NA license for Urusei Yatsura * Lum. Due to this, the complete UY gallery has been removed from their site too. Thanks to AtaruLumFan I got my hand on this complete gallery which contains 532 images. Some are quite old and some are rather 'newish'. I decided to create a new gallery and uploaded the complete AnimEigo UY Gallery here. These precious pictures will never be lost in the digital trashbin \(^_^)/. The new gallery can be found here. Enjoy!
