Summer-glau.com. Fan site. A website barely alive. Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the technology. We have the capability to make the world’s best fan site. Summer-glau.com will be that website. Better than it was before. Better. Stronger. Faster (If these words conjure up memories of you running round the playground in slow motion, it’s odds on you’re a child of the 1970's).
Unfortunately, that means starting a website from scratch. New content will be added as it comes and old content will be added as time permits. On a more positive side, the switch means moving to a high-performance VPS server, enhanced security, a new CMS (bye, bye ucoz and hello Wordpress) and a new performance optimized layout designed to follow the trends of today’s modern web, resulting in improved website speed and ultimately a better user experience.
You might say, why so much effort and money (approximately six million dollar, hehe) to build a new website given that Summer Glau has practically retired from acting? What can I say, I love the bond that we have created with fans over the years, especially on social media.
A huge thank you to my good friend James Ellison (hehe) for taking care of the technical parts, and for the sound advices. I could not have done it so quickly and so efficiently without him. Final details remain to be worked out but the site should be up and running by the end of the week. I shall then post a news, from the new site this time, to announce the lauch of the new summer-glau.com.
Hope to see you there!

Thanks, I learned a lot too. The thing is, the Internet has changed since this site was launched and fandom activity takes place mostly on social media now. Not to mention the fact that Summer has basically retired from acting to raise her two little kids.
