Hermetic Press fan forum

Postby Tom Stone » December 5th, 2011, 10:40 am

Secretly, for the last few days, I have put together a Hermetic Press fan-forum behind Stephen Minch's back.

In an hour or so, I will present it to him as a surprise. :)

If you own any book from Hermetic Press, and have anything to say about it, feel free to post your thoughts at: http://hermeticforum.com/index.php
(I'm still in the process of adding the books, so if your favorite book isn't there yet, it will turn up eventually.)

Yes, it makes it easier to brainstorm and talk about details.

Frank, Evan..
The web host have had some serious problems with the email servers since Monday. That has delayed the sending of the activation email.

However, I just found that I can activate accounts through the administrative backend, and I've just done that.
You can log in now.

great idea, great site, though the high-security password is a bit much

I know. But there are only 24 hours in a day, and I'd prefer to spend as little time as possible on removing spam from robots that have entered due to weak passwords.

I see; I actually wasn't even aware that passwords had relevance other than as to overheated concerns about "privacy." And in any event, the site looks great, and stands as a reminder of the astonishing array of landmark books that Minch has done. Great idea, and if it's less likely to be infiltrated by boasts about having married a rich guy, pitches for athletic apparel, or the weird messages that seem to dominate the Genii Forum occasionally, so much the better.
