The Eye of the Great Reread Reborn

In which I take a break from rambling about metadata to rambling about something I don’t have to think so hard about while I wait for my head to stop killing me. So I did a blog search just now, and was a little surprised that I’ve never really talked about Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series, considering that, not only have I been reading it for fourteen years now, coming up on fifteen by the time Book 12 comes out, it was and remains a pretty big influence on the way I look at world creation, fantasy, and what have you. I recently started rereading the books – I needed something to read on work breaks, and in any […]

On Current Political Discussion

In which I am going to continue refraining from actual political discussion on this blog, because I still feel slightly nauseous about things said in 2004, and in any case we have Samson’s blog for that. This blog is for discussion of our alien overlords, and perhaps also rabbits and squirrels, who may or may not be the same as the forementioned alien overlords. They are very clever. That having been said, via Sarah, this bit from the archives was true in its time, just as it’s true today. And in other news, Colin Powell has endorsed Barack Obama for president. I encourage you to spend the fifteen minutes of your time to watch the videos I linked. Not because […]

Under A Blue Sky

An approximate conversation from today: Sarah: OMG, fall! Pretty colors! Me: Yes. Sarah: We should go climb West Rock! Me: My back hurts. Sarah: But we’ve been talking about it for two years! Also, it looks amazing out! Me: There’s that, I suppose. So after a brief trip to UPS, which is a rant in itself, we paused to admire the view on the local streets, and see that picture of North up there, which is, oh, approximately 50 feet from my house, we headed up to West Rock. And then we froliced in the woods. There were squirrels. Instead of talking about it, which would be superfluous, I will show you pictures. Most of them can be clicked for […]

When Cliff Racers Ruled the Internet

Apparently, we have learned this evening, this image or images like it, are responsible for something like 17 GB of bandwidth usage on this site. Moreover, if you believe Google, that single image has been linked to on a fair number of gaming forums, not to mention 4chan of all places. Crazy. Via Googling my site URL, this, which is whatever it is. See about halfway down the page. The internets. They are watching you.

Via Megatokyo, my computer upgrading experience this weekend: Remember, kids – when connecting your new IDE drive, you must have one slave, and one master. IDE does not believe in democracy, and doing things such as, say, accidentally leaving the jumper on your new drive set to master and putting it in the slave position ends…badly. Which is a long way of saying I forgot to set jumpers correctly, and Windows completely failed to see my drive. But I fixed that, and now I have a DVD burner. Ho ho ho. Yes, I realize that I’m about 5 years behind the times here. However, to make up for that, I now have a shiny new external hard drive. A ONE […]
