AUSXIP LUCY LAWLESS ~
The Australian Xena Information Page (AUSXIP) Lucy Lawless Files is a fan run, non-profit web site devoted to the career of Lucille Frances Lawless (aka Lucy Lawless). It has no affiliations with Lucy Lawless, Rob Tapert
or her agency.
AUSXIP was born in December
1996 after I sat down to watch a new show called Xena Warrior
Princess. I was instantly captivated by a dark haired woman
called Lucy Lawless. I became a fan and the more one learns
about Lucy, the more you will find that it's easy being a fan of
this talented woman. This site is my way of showing appreciation
for Lucy and a way to chronicle her career. I do not post any
private information about Lucy or her family nor about her
children. I truly believe Lucy's private life is just that -

The show Xena Warrior Princess has changed my
life completely and all for the good. I've met so many wonderful
people because of this show; people that have touched my life in
ways never imagined. I've met Lucy and became an even bigger fan
(is that possible?). I've made life long friendships, opened new
doors for my creative endeavours and had one hell of a ride.
All because one balmy Summer night I sat down to record a new
show for a friend. There are moments in your life when you know
you've reached a turning point. I didn't know it at the time but
looking back, I can clearly see it. This isn't just about a tv
show; the planets were aligned and thankfully my VCR skills were
terrible so I found this show and I discovered Lucy Lawless.
Life is funny that way. Just when you least expect something to
occur, it usually does.
This site is a labour of love.
When something gives you joy, you just don't want it to ever
Brief History of the site:
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 :)
To my utter amazement, I found that 5 mb wasn't enough so in April 1997 I move the site to simplenet
where it found fertile soil and flourished. That address was http://www.xenite.simplenet.com
July 1999 the site changed to it's domain name: www.ausxip.com
Simplenet/Yahoo got a little tight with their size restrictions so ausxip had to move again. This time it
took up residence on hostingshop servers with a huge 10 gb hard drive (no one remind me about the 5 mb okay?).
I found that I needed to separate
my general Xena site from the two offshoot sites for Lucy & Renee. Funnily enough Renee's section was done first and July 1997 saw Renee's section come into being.
I persisted with having Lucy's section still merged with Ausxip because to me Lucy was Xena and Xena was Lucy. It wasn't until I realised that I was adding articles/news/images that had
nothing to do with Xena and all to do with Lucy's other creative endeavours did I split the two up and formed the Lawless Files in 1998. That new section was located at
In 8 April 2003 I decided the two sites needed to get out of the ausxip.com nest and get their own domain names so
www.lucylawless.net was born.
Alas it seemed that the 10 gb was fast going to be too little to house ausxip, The Lawless Files and The Roc File so I packed up and moved to a new suburb where the houses
were bigger, the air smelt fresher and the bandwidth was a monster :) The sites are now on a dedicated server and a little more than 5 mb in space <vbg>
And thus ends our brief history lesson.
I hope you enjoy your stay on AUSXIP Lucy
Lawless - it's crammed with articles, pictures and multimedia so
expect to stay a couple of hours :)
It's about Lucy Lawless, wife, mother, actress,
singer, charity worker and one heck of a decent person.
