Highlights of 1999:

February 17: OVC, USA – Unfortunately, the entire Coven Organization site vanishes once more on or about February 17th (“the stiffs who hosted the domain took offense at The Coven’s PG-rated Vampire Erotica section and removed the domain from their server”). Sanguinarius.org vanishes with it; fortunately, it is mirrored on Tripod, but without the resources such as The Real Vampire Directory and the Vampire Community Calendar. The Coven site was back up again a few days later, but it prompts Sanguinarius to seriously consider acquiring a domain of her own. (Article)

October 28-December 12: OVC, USA – The Coven site vanishes again. According to Raphael Osiris, the Coven Org’s founder, “The Coven lost access to it’s server because of an overly-cautious hosting providor concerned about our type of ‘content’ and traffic. … We have purchased our own server hardware and high-speed data access line to our headquarters and are no longer at the mercy of said hosting providors.” (Article)
