It’s up!

January 24, 2008

Dust and is up and running. We’re still getting everything set up and moved in, but it’s operational. I’ve got a to-do list posted on the page for me to tackle as it goes by, but as far as having a running database and operational message board goes it’s finally there. Head on over to Dust and Ashes now to get a look, and register! I’d love to be able to talk with you guys there if you’d so like.

Dust and Ashes is a message board/community for Orthodox Christians, Catechumens, and inquirers. We have forums to fit every poster’s needs, and if we don’t, tell us and we’ll see about getting it put up for you. For my tech readers it’s hosted by iPower and running on the vBulletin message board system. If you’ve never posted on a message board before, here is a great link to explain things a little more.

I hope to have a website implemented to go along with the message board too, where I’ll provide links to other sites, add some affiliates, host sites of the month, things of that nature. You would be able to purchase some advertising space and get your site featured on Dust and Ashes to increase your traffic, whether it’s a blog, message board, or Orthodox website. I’ll be featuring an online webstore too, based on Cafepress, to get a little merchandise up for those who would be interested.

Dust and Ashes is still a grassroots effort. We’re getting advertised based on links and word of mouth from people who are interested in helping. If you would like to link Dust and Ashes from your site or blog, I would highly appreciate anything you could do to help. Reply here, or email me at for more info on that.

Feedback and suggestions are most welcome. I look forward to seeing you guys on the new message board.

    You need a spiffy logo for the top of the page. This image would also serve as a good banner ad.

    I’m looking forward to seeing more of this. But you may have noticed that the comments are are very hard to see at all!

    I started His Life and Works tonight. I’m on Chapter Two now. I had a lot of studying to do so I didn’t get as much reading done as I would’ve liked. I wish we were reading this in sync, but oh well. I’m going to try and make some modifications to my blog and get that running nicely, but we’ll see how things pan out. Adios.

    I commented using an old username of mine, so ignore that. I didn’t even know I still had that account, so I went ahead and deleted it.

  5. I tried going to and it wouldn’t pull up. It said there was some type of error.

    It’s going to be back up before too long, I’m contacting my providers corporate offices to get their services terminated. I’ve absolutely had it with their servers, in the short time I’ve had it it’s been down over 10 times. I’ll be moving it over soon. Check back in. 🙂
