|History of the sites|
Chapapanga dot org is itself shiny new, but the two primary sites, "Organized Chaos!" and Swearing to the sky, have been around quite a while.
"Organized Chaos!" was born on Geocities on May 7, 1999. It quickly moved when there was a lot of controversy about the revised Geocities TOS. Its first permanent home was on Crosswinds. Unlimited space, no banners, it seemed perfect... Until a long time later, Crosswinds accidentally deleted the whole site. Irritated to no end, the site was put back up, I believe on Angelfire. The Angelfire stint was short-lived, for Spoonybard.nu took up hosting the site. This was its second permantent home... until Spoonybard.nu suddenly died without warning. Then it went back to Angelfire. Again, it was short-lived. Filgaia.com took the site in. This was the third permanent home. This time, we left not because of sudden site death, but because of an urge to have a place where both sites could have a banner-free home. Chapapanga.org was born and the site was moved here. I thank those that gave "OC"! a home over the years.
Swearing to the Sky (born June 4, 2000), however, lived most of its life on Angelfire. It was fine until they started giving pop-ups despite choosing the "banner on top" option. After the afore-mentioned death of Spoonybard.nu and the rebirth of "OC!" on Filgaia.com, Miasma.nu, the Spoonybard.nu owner's new site, took the site in. Things were fine until the host stopped hosting. Annoyingly enough, I was switching from AOL to DSL at that time, so I didn't get the e-mail saying the host stopped hosting until late. In any event, that was when the site was put back up on the unfortunately pop-up ridden Angelfire. When the pop-ups started triggering people's anti-virus software, I decided something had to be done. Hence, chapapanga dot org was born! Since it'd be silly to host just one tiny site on such a big place, "OC!" was moved too.
And we come to lies Chapapanga dot org. Its history has yet to begin...
