Thank You



Thank You Everyone!

It seems that the spam program works and comments are once again easier to use!!

*there’s a few glitches but between programs/apps and updates there may always be a few glitches – you’ve got to love technology*

I appreciate everyone taking the moment to comment it was great to see so many followers of Sylum.

So now that I know y’all can comment – I’ll be looking for more comments on up coming posts. *cackles*

Testing: Please Reply to this Post



We’re always trying to find the best ways to keep the blog safe yet keep it easily accessible to everyone else.

The spam program we were using, the designers decided not to support it anymore.  Though it had worked great it also made commenting more difficult.

Tried another – we won’t even go there.

The one we’re trying now could possible work to keep the spam out yet not annoy everyone else in the process – this is a good thing!

*crosses fingers*

I’m asking for those who do read and comment on the blog to do a favor for me.

First – clear your cookies/caches etc… this will get rid of previous versions of the blog and make it clean so to speak.

Second – reply to this post. I’ve added back the reply via twitter, facebook, wordpress or email. (I’m not sure where it had gone but hey it’s back!)

If you are one of those who was able to keep their registration – sign in that way and reply.   You use twitter and follow the link from twitter – reply using that.  If you don’t have twitter but do have facebook – try it with that.  You’re a wordpress user – please comment via wordpress.  If you don’t have any – please use the email.

We’re trying to see what catches in the spam what doesn’t.  I’ll be answering each comment to see what’s going through and what isn’t.  Though be patient with us this may take a while.  If you don’t get an answer and never see your comment within 24 hours – email us at (

Third – cross your fingers, send good thoughts, light a candle and send a prayer to St. Isidore of Seville Patron Saint of Computers.

In Memoriam: Robin Williams


In Memoriam


It’s been a week since the news that we lost Robin Williams.

It’s taken me the past week just to process the loss for myself, let alone figure out the best way to pay tribute a man who touched so many lives.

It’s hard to find anyone who hasn’t been touched in some way by his movies/tv shows, his kind soul, or his infectious laugh.  I’m from a generation that can remember Mork & Mindy.



His movies made you laugh.

Mrs. Doubtfire.

 The moment I hear.

‘Good Morning Vietnam’

I hear Robin Williams.


He earned an Academy Award for Good Will Hunting and encouraged two young men to take on Hollywood.



And lets not forget this guy….



Generations of kids learned how to be a ‘Friend like Me’ through Robin Williams.

He was re-introduced to new generations as Theodore Roosevelt in the Night at the Museum Series.  The series reminded me how much he made me laugh.



Even a week after hearing the news I still get tears in my eyes.

But Robin was about laughter!

Sylum has always given tribute to those who have inspired us.

So in Sylum style – lefts ups a glass of cider.

To Robin. Thanks for the laughter. For the tears.  You’ve been an inspiration. A humanitarian.  And you will be missed.



A Robin Williams character will be introduced in Sylum.

He’s inspired so many and will be immortalized for all.

Sylum Wiki: Update



To let everyone in on, what has been the Administrators worst nightmare.

The wiki has crashed and burned.

The Administrators were found weeping under their desks.

So after long hours of *headdesking* *wailing* and *OMG* *WTF* *REALLY?!!*  We came up with a solution.

The wiki is being re-built in a new location, on a more stable platform.

What does this mean to everyone else?

The wiki that you currently can view is out of date.

You can access it, and about 85% will be accurate enough to get the information you need.

Note: If you have questions where the wiki doesn’t match the Sylum story – leave your question at the Q&A Section of the blog.

The new improved wiki will be revealed when we start posting the 10th Anniversary of Clan War.

Seven Days of Summer: Day 7 – Fic by Bj Jones


Title: The Return of Lary

Author: Bj Jones

Rating: FRAO

Summary: Larry returns at the most inopportune time…


Title: CSI: Anthology - Interlude: Caesars

Author: Bj Jones

Rating: FRAO

Summary: This is a series of stories of how Nick & Warrick deal with being CSIs working in Vegas.

Author’s Note: This series of stories takes place through CSI seasons 1 – 4.  Some episodes have been changed to fit Sylum perimeters.  Also there are Sylum storyline changes that will be showcased in the 10th Anniversary of Clan War and re-work of Annihilation.

2nd Author’s Note: The episode title will be used as reference.  I would suggest a re-watch of Old School CSI, to get the references, as the episode is not re-written it’s only there as a base of what’s going in and around that moment.
