X-Siting - First she assaulted her enemies. Then she
invaded our living rooms. Now Xena: Warrior Princess has taken up
residence on the Internet. Just plug the name of Xena into a web search
and a flood of web-sites will scroll before you - proof that Lucy
Lawless is quickly becoming a cultural icon. Since there seem to be
hundreds of Xena-Oriented websites to choose from, we've decided to make
your search a little easier by compiling a list of some of the more
resourceful Xena Sites.
http://www.xenite.simplenet.com (AUSXIP before getting a doman)
This excellent Xena: Warrior Princess information page is packed with
easy-to-read episode, character and actor guides. The site also boasts
sound files, episode clips, a graphics gallery and fan fiction, in
addition to a cool section where transcripts to Xena articles from
newspapers, talk shows and mags have been compiled.
15 December 1996:
In the time of ancient warlords, kings and defective VCR
programming...a site was born..well sorta <g>
Our tale, dear reader, goes back in the dim 1990's...actually 1996, on a hot and humid Saturday
Sydney night in the dying days of 1996. December 14, 1996 to be exact. I sat down to make sure that I would tape a show for a friend who missed the first episode of a show called "Xena: Warrior Princess".
Frankly I wasn't going to give her a tape with Australia's Funniest Home Videos on it since she really had her heart set on this show.
intention was to sit for a minute, make sure the VCR was taping what it was supposed to be taping and move on to more important things...alas fate had other ideas and thus I began
this insane journey of creating a site dedicated to Xena: Warrior Princess, Lucy Lawless and Renee O'Connor. The site was called The Australian Xena Information Page at
That site were born December 15,
1996 when everything I did to get the idea out of my head failed and so in the true and trusted method of giving in to my ideas, I created the site.
Originally the site were located under one address on the 5 mb space allocated to me by my ISP. I did a Bill Gates and said the immortal words...I don't think I'll need
more than 5 mb. You can stop laughing now :)
