This is Jenni speaking to you from the not-so-distant
Ooooh... Yeah, I know it'd be more impressive if I was speaking
from the future but there's only so much a girl can do.
when she's on hiatus. So anyway, here I am writing this on the
day of August and you probly won't get it til sometime in
like to thank Andrew, my sister, my dog, Colleen, and anyone else who
wrote for JABB during my hiatus. I'll leave it up to you all
who was legit and who wasn't. :-)
I thought now would be a good time to do a proper issue about
web site. Sorta a tutorial. Cause it's occurred to me that
in all the
years we've had a web site, I've said precious little about it in the
newsletter. So that's what you'll find below. Anyhow, I may
returning next newsletter from hiatus. Or not. Really who
when I'm writing this three months ahead of time? May be
really exciting will have happened with John's career! That'd be
nice. Ah well, I'm sure you've heard enough of my (by now) 3
chit-chat. Onto the newsletter!
(Ambivalence- Jenni's puter with
out whom this site wouldn't be here)
How To Find Your Way Around the
"So this is what Jenni did with
her spare time for 6 years...
The first thing I suppose a person would need to know is
JABB is located. After several years of shuffling around free
web-hosting services, Jenni finally shelled out a few bucks and bought
a domain name and webspace. The result was onthisside.net, a
to Andrew's popular quote from the episode "Random Acts". "I
you to know there's nothing to be afraid of. On one side, there is
life. And on the other...there is life, too." To the best of my
recollection it was Sara who came up with it. Anyhow, regardless
from whence it came the address for JABB is:
So you click on the bucket and are bombarded by a series of
links. It's those I plan to tell a bit about here. The top
pretty self-explanatory. That's an archive of all the
usually try to update those at least every two months. Whether
kept up with that during hiatus, not sure. Also in that section
which was what we launched JABB with. It was because we got so
amused feedback from those 12 lil items that JABB continues to this
day. You can also access our guestbook
from that page. I love getting new messages there though it
doesn't happen very often!
Next comes the "Our Other Stuff" section which I felt
some explanation. First you'll see a lavendar button that will
you to our store.
I make the bracelets and drool buckets and angels found there so
you're looking for an original gift for yourself or that special
Androoler on your Christmas list... just lemme know. Occasionally
special promotions there so check back!
Below that are our "Green Pages".
Think of that as a sort of resume for the group. The template
free with our domain name package and I couldn't resist making an
actual professional looking page (complete with animated intro!).
Anyhow, that's just a brief look at what we do, who we are, etc.
There's also a second guestbook there which, at the time of writing
this, has been signed by exactly one person... me. LOL
Next comes our FAQ which is
just some questions we often get. Then our Odds and Ends
which, as you might guess, is where random stuff that doesn't fit on
other pages goes. Disclaimers
and Credits is where we thank people and try not to get sued.
is a recent addition and tells a lil about real JABB members and a few
of the key fictional characters. If you'd like an "About Me" page
please contact me as I'm feeling a lil goofy being the only real person
with a page!
Next comes our lil subsection of useful stuff. Probly
only thing I need to explain there is the Encyclopedia.
Yes it is exactly what it sounds like. I went through every
newsletter and picked out themes and recurring items and made an
encyclopedia. By going there you can find all the newsletters
reference, say, Andrew's leather jacket or all newsletters having to do
with winter holidays. In short, if you want to know something
JABB and don't wanna just come right out and ask check there
Also that's where the bulk of our snapshots are thanks to Jess!
Now, supposing you're just utterly bored. Beyond just
what we've done in the past, JABB also has stuff *you* can do. Contest
Rules and Info is a must if you plan to participate in any future
is a collection of contests that have long since expired. But you
still have fun with the trivia, scavenger hunts, and episode
And if you're still bored, you can click on over to Dye Scouts
where you can earn badges and a place on JABB's web space for
completing various tasks!
To see what your fellow JABBers have all ready done, you can
through our next section. Poems and
links to works members have either written themselves or pre-existent
works that reminds them of Andrew, John, or fandom life. For a
behind-the-scenes (and crazed) look at JABB you can check out my Author's Cut
and see all the stuff that never quite made it into a newsletter!
There you can read about sappy chihuahua love affairs, read way more
about fringe JABB characters than you probly want to know, and find
JenniAnn somehow mustering the strength to physically move
Methinks the Senate may want to question her about steroid use...
think of it as a blend between the cut scenes section and the
commentary of JABB if it were a DVD. Also, if you have a
home page and
want our members to know about it, consider our JABB Members
Finally we come to evidence of the depth our appreciation for
Blonde One will go... You can click through pages and pages of
renderings of Dyeland.
See Adam's island overrun by turkeys! Ponder what it must be like
Andrew to live a mere two doors away from JenniAnn. There you can
examine the origins of the names of places in Dyeland, the official
flowers of each city, and the completely useless laws! Ponder the
wisdom of a people who don't find it important to have, say, a mechanic
but can't do with out their Renaissance Faire grounds! LOL
Ever feel the urge to just spray paint "I love Andrew" in big
letters on the wall of that building just around the corner?
curb that sort of hooliganism, JABB has it's own Graffiti Wall!
Email me to leave a message there!
Well, I think that about does it. I hope this has
you to be a bit more aware of what JABB has to offer! Or may be
just made you a lil bit more leery of giving your address to someone
who once thought singing a lovelorn song from "Camelot" with Sidney's
dad from "Alias" would be a cool thing to do. :-)
