Much to my complete shock, I just got an access code for this! I had validated my OpenId over there and I came up in their random draw. I am in_interval over there as well and am in the process of trying to get set up. Any and all advice is very welcome.

There's a really odd bug in delicious.com. I am anal about tagging my bookmarks, and I was very unhappy to discover that I had 217 bookmarks and apparently only 216 had a fandom tag. I say apparently, because after doing a search, I found the errant story. And it does have tags - all three of the ones I generally put on a bookmark.

The story in question is Chemistry Of by [livejournal.com profile] averaird. If I go to it by using any of its three tags, it's there no problem. If I click on one of the tag bundle names, it mysteriously disappears from the list.

Sigh. It's probably not worth reporting - I just wanted to put it out there in case any of you ran across the same problem.

(Yes, I balance my checkbook down to the penny too.)

ETA: Huh, adding more bookmarks made the problem go away. Probably should have tried that in the first place.

I love visiting family over the holidays, but being internetless makes it far too hard to catch up with Yuletide. I've barely started reading and the reveal is in two days.

I followed [livejournal.com profile] svmadelyn's excellent advice to sort by longest work first, but I had to go and check out the Merlin fics first. Yay for serendipity that this fandom was eligible this year. 23 fics. Wow.


And one absolutely terrific one that has been recced everywhere:
That Shall Achieve The Sword - A variation of "Arthur finds out" (which I can never have enough of anyway) but with wonderful Arthur POV (which is much rarer).


Queen of the Cats‏ - Young Sam! And Vetinari! And a long plotty story that's a great follow-up to Lords and Ladies.

The Uninvited Guest‏ - More Susan in any form is a treat, but this is a fabulous look at Baby Susan. Great stuff.

Galaxy Quest

The Show Must Go On‏ - So much fun. A terrific take on Mirror, Mirror with good scenes for everyone in the ensemble.


Zen and the art of Maserati maintenance, or Five Times Charlie Crews' thoughts turned to love‏ - Nice look at the inside of Charlie's head during interactions with the other characters. I particularly like how this author handles the characters I don't like all that much (Tidwell and Connie) and just a great scene with Reese.

Pushing Daisies

hoping's very fears‏ - Great case story with lovely Ned characterization. I like Ned more here than I do on the show sometimes.

My hard drive started making pathetic bleeping noises at me (groaning under the weight of all the files I refused to delete) and so I finally installed my DVD writer internal drive. Which made it possible to not only back up my AVI files, but for me to learn how to convert them to ISO files.

So I've spent the last month converting. I've found that it's a heck of a lot easier to get people to watch a show if all they have to do is pop a DVD into the player too. But what made the point even more was Nodame Cantabile ).

And my hard drive is now much happier with me.

I have never participated in an auction before. I opened my PayPal account this week. That was a completely unanticipated experience - I am so high on the adrenaline that it is hard to sit down.

I might have won something! *Sits by mailbox*

ETA: OMG, YAY! It looks like I did!

I kept seeing this show recommended for people who liked Kurosagi. So I gave it a shot.

Briefly, I loved it.


Liar Game )

Next, maybe the first season of Trick or Galileo (more puzzle dramas). Or Jotei (Matsuda's summer season drama). I've been asked when I'll run out of stuff to watch. Not as long as every drama I like adds three more to the list.

Well, I had good intentions. I really meant to try to post more but then

I got sucked into Korean and Japanese dramas )

I have accounts on insanejournal, greatestjournal, and journalfen as in_interval but what this has mostly meant is that I now check friendslists on four accounts rather than one. I am mostly staying here. The communities I follow are here, half my friendslist is here, and it's not like I need to worry about the whole posting issue with as little as I actually post.

I used [livejournal.com profile] icarusancalion's very helpful guide to migrating my friendslist but I will keep checking to see if I missed anyone. I don't want to lose any of you.

I post so darned little as it is that I feel guilty about doing a meme, but I loved my results for this one:

My Harry Potter Spoiler of Doom is:
Harry Potter is killed by Mrs Peacock in the conservatory, with the lead piping
Get your Harry Potter Spoiler of Doom

I set up a goodreads account (as in_interval). I think I might actually be able to keep up with this one. Attempting to catalog my library is just asking for failure but I can handle a list of stuff I read as I go along. Particularly since I am reading so darned slowly these days, sigh. And I love seeing what other people are reading.

I think gardening is a nice word to suck people into what is actually hard manual labor. I'm wondering if I'll ever not be sore. And yeah, I could have actually paid attention to the non-grass part of the yard at some point during the last 15 years, but still.

Okay. Back to it.

Gunman kills at least 22 at Virginia Tech

Absolutely horrible and I can't get a grip on it at all. Parents in my neighborhood have kids there - my kids have friends there. Who could do such a thing?

My Surfacing zines just arrived!  And rationality just left.  I'm not sure I want to start reading because once I start, I will be closer to the time I finish.  So I am just looking at the covers for now and feeling like an idiot.

I need advice.

I read two stories this morning that both had obvious typos in them. Both had had a beta editor. (Neither was by anyone on my friendslist.) My thought on pointing out typos had been that it was like spinach in the teeth: the author might appreciate being told, but would rather be told in private.

But if neither of these authors have heard from me before, would they want me sending e-mail pointing out a typo? Also, one of the stories is from last June. How late is too late to point something out? I don't want to offend anyone.

I am a lurker by nature and created this journal to follow other people's creativity. I'm not sure I'll ever have very much to say here.
