Lan-Ø-Lay was started as a lame hobbyist website in April 1998. The initial purpose of developing this tiny Burmese poetry site was to rehash my stressful mind when I felt so down and melancholy. In the very beginning it was hosted on yoyo then moved to 8m.com in mid 1999. As the volume of data grew it needed an account with much larger storage capacity. Hence it was transferred to 50megs.com in February 2001 then expanded to 150m.com a few months later. In the surge of Myanmar Unicode fonts and online content management systems more hosting facilities were acquired across http://lanolay.com and https://lanolay.wordpress.com.
Lan-Ø-Lay matured to ver 3.0b in October 2001. It obtained its very first own domain name http://lanolay.net in November 2001 and had a redirector – http://lanolay.endofinternet.org [February 2002]. The second domain name http://lanolay.org was acquired in September 2002 and the third one http://lanolay.com in November 2007. However those domain names were redistributed one after another. Eventually in the end of 2008 Lan-Ø-Lay disowned all its domain names and was moved to WordPress.com [LøL v4.1b].
It is archiving 550 poems, 38 short stories, 8 novellas, 14 articles and 10 essays by November 2008. Although backup processes have been carried out, 160+ archives were lost during the Geocities shutdown in October 2009. The rest of archives moved from Geocities accounts are restored here on this site as much as backups permitted.
As of August 2017, tag stats on this site became :
