One of the greatest movies of all time was Ghostbusters. It was followed up with one of the greatest cartoons of all time, The Real Ghostbusters (one of the most successful Movie-to-TV translations EVER). The mix of comedy, horror, and weird science was white-hot in the Eighties, and still maintains a loyal fan following to this day!!!
Item 1: Just a few days ago (August 20) I attended the big gaming convention GenCon, and by far the highlight of the day was meeting some of the other members of Ghostbusters International in person for the first time. Dr. Vincent Belmont (Arcane Division, and long-time fan fic contributor, including the editing of Chronicles of Gozer), Kevin Kemarly of the Onarga Ghostbusters, Greg Justis of the Detroit Division, and what must have been Nick Schueren's entire Louisville Ghostbusters crew. As well as a couple of new fans from the Southside of Indianapolis (small world sometimes, huh? Lol) Despite not having a flight suit, I made a semi-credible showing in that illustrious company thanks to Kevin lending me a lab coat ("I'm a scientist") and a "neutron saber" (Well, okay, a Star Wars lightsaber, but close enough...)

Update--Oct 3: Read Ghostbusters International: Con-Fusion for a fan fiction take on the events of that day
Item 2: The all-new Ectozone.net. Well, okay, it's not really a new site (if you pay attention the url actually takes you to a page of Ectozone.com) but a nifty new trick I found where I can assign subdomains to the Ectozone.net domain name. I could do that with Ectozone.com, but Lycos only allows three...with GoDaddy, I can create up to one hundred. All the old urls still work, by the way, with the exception of the Digimon site (which used to be Ectozone.net). So here's the component sites of Ectozone.net for the moment...
forum.ectozone.net The Ectozone Message Board. The configuration of the boards have been changed to fit the new concept, but it's basically the one I've had up over a year now.
gbcomm.ectozone.net The Ghostbusters Omnibus Fan Fiction Center
gozer.ectozone.net The Chronicles of Gozer web site.
digimon.ectozone.net The Digimon site that noone ever visited, but it's still there just in case anyone wants to.
gb.ectozone.net Okay, I'm being a little silly with this one, because that one takes you right back here (lol)
There's one more I haven't made public yet, but will when the time is right. And there are a couple of other sites I know who might appreciate the subdomains...but nothing about that until more is set up.
