This journal is now minions-only. *cough* Did I say minions? No. No. No. That's not what I meant at all.
I meant Friends. Friends-Only. Yep, that was it. F-R-I-E-N-D-S. Friends-Only.( Read more...Collapse )
PS: My fanfic entries are public so if that's what you want to read, no friending is needed. Also, I do know the date is wrong for this post - its on purpose. I haven't figured out how to make a banner appear first on the page without it.
Apparently, I have two very similar tags - which one should prevail? Since I'm totally annoyed at the moment (per my last post) creating this poll is an attempt to lift the mood....
Frustrations & Rants
Hmmmm....or perhaps something else? Feel free to make suggestions via comments.
I'm trying to understand some of these tools especially seeing as I'm the one in my group at work who is supposed to be knowledgable on Social Media tools and Twitter is one I'm not using....till today. I saw it in mhalachaiswords
and was inspired to finally create an account. So, as ZephyrRS, can I friend you there or do whatever is it one needs to do in order to link accounts? Please, anyone reading this?
That way, you can help to inspire that lightbulb moment when I "get" the tools usefulness.
Thanks, in advance.
PS. I made this post public but am screening comments so if you want to share your twitter contact with me but not random folks, its protected. thx!
Elfquest, the movie...it is finally actually happening after years and years of lobbying and failed attempts by Wendy and Richard Pini.
Don't know the series? Its totally worth reading the original series from beginning to end...and, guess what -- its mostly online!!!! That's right. EQ was one of the first publishers to decide to put some of its original art in brilliant four color on-line. Nothing beets my original signed copy collections, but this is a great way to read up on one of the first successful independent graphic novels published. Visit the FREE EQ On-line Gallery - 20+ years of art now on-line"
As an aside, I'm also partial to the Short Story Collection Books: The Blood of Ten Chiefs.
On a final note...fingers crossed that WB will actually do EQ justice. And...what will they decide to rate it. This is one series that could easily be translated to film anywhere along the spectrum of G to NC-17. My gut is they will go with PG. However, I would not be surprised if they pushed it to PG-13.
I was thinking about the cost of a penny
while driving into work today and couldn't help but wonder -- why don't they just convert to more paper? Make a 1/2 dollar and 1/4 dollar paper bill that is smaller in size than the regular dollar?
I'm just asking....
I've had computer hell for the past two weeks....its been horrid. ( hear me rant....Collapse )
Anyhow, if you've emailed me anything important over the last several days....please resend. See, I've been working off of loaners and webmail and am seriously behind. About 300+ on gmail. I was focused on keeping abreast of work. Sorry!
If anyone has time to play with a photo of M from his first viola concert -- I'd appreciate any offers of help and will email it to you. BEcause of where he was sitting I was only able to get one decent pic and even that is both grainy and he has white eyes -- not red.
The basic red-eye removed won't help because of the resolution caused by the distance and lighting of a concert in a gymnasium. I don't mind the resolution so much but I'd love to get rid of the ghostly eyes.
Anyhow, if anyone is fabulous at photoshop and willing to lend a hand, I'd appreciate it but don't feel obligated!
Web places I went, articles I read today...just felt like sharing.
Interesting group..was checking something out for a project.
Brazil as new Tech VC locationhttp://alwayson.goingon.com/permalink/post/27216
Article sent to me by a co-worked who is currently at a meeting in Hong Kong with one of our volunteers who is heavily involved in Tech in Brazil.
Been a member for a while -- trying to figure out the value of Plaxo Pulse after getting my "updates this week email"
-- because I used to get a "updates this week" email from LinkedIn similar to the Plaxo Pulse one and now I don't....why? Gave up after 5 minutes because I had work to do.
Viola on Wikihttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viola
OK, not actually for work really, but visited during the work day. My eldest had his first orchestra concert last night. I was pleasantly surprised! The 3rd grade kids did well, but the 4th and 5th grade orchestras really surprised me. I'll probably write more and post pictures soon in a flist-only post about it -- he was so cute in his shirt and tie! Meanwhile, one of my work buddies wanted to know the real difference between the violin and the viola. I began to describe it and cut myself off with a, "Let's just wiki it..."Where I checked the news today...
I received then lost this link...so I'm putting it here for the future..
Dasja Dolan Photographs. Dasja is the wife of a first cousin once removed who lives in Portland, Oregon (USA). I've only ever met Dasja once at the Bat Mitzvah of another cousine in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (USA) last July. Lovely women. She is responsible for the one of the few decent photos of me that I've managed to obtain. For those on AIM or LinkedIn with me -- that photo/icon is thanks to her.http://dasjadolan.smugmug.com/gallery/4177478_XPe5G#244087569
Was home today taking care of KB while she is recovering from surgery and got to watch the live streaming noon preview of tonights BSG ep. It was excellent...even if Kara is off her rocker. Watch it -- 10 pm EST or 12 midnight. Enjoy. ;-)
Not sure if this will work, but I'm posting this BSG clip via http://www.scifi.com/widgets/
Click on the image to make it work!
If it does work...nifty. Shiny SciFi and BSG for braving cool web stuffs.
I won't be able to listen to this in real time, but I thought I should share for those who might be interested.

Woo Hoo!!! Eight days of meetings completed and I actually do have an evening free in Vancouver. I've already done the major sights on snippets of free time that I managed to catch --
- sat on the sea wall
- wandered the waterfront
- visited the vag
- ambled through the aquarium
- gorged on food in gastown
- robbed blind on the price of gifts for the kids on Robson
So....I have one evening left. Ignoring the fact that I'm exhausted and should probably go work out, should I:
(1) Order room service and slowly pack so I'm not stressed in the morning (car service pick-up at 9:00 am)
(2) Go to the bookstore and check out Canadian authors....adding fun but weight to the suitcase
(3) Shop more
(4) Eat out again
(5) see a 6:30 showing of HP5 (or just wait till I get back home with the kids)
(6) something else
, if you are reading this and have a better local idea, please call or text me!
Another snippet highlight from yesterday - I spent part of the conference cocktail party chatting merrily with the guy whose day job is to drive one of the Mars Land Rover for JPL. He is here because he is the volunteer chair for the Robotics & Automation Societies Conference and is learning how to run a better conference.
Yes, I am such a geek because it seriously was a highlight.
Heyla all -- anyone on my lists in the Detroit/Lansing Area of Michigan?
I'll be there at the end of the month with a bit of free time...
Morning/afternoon: July 30
Afternoon/Evening: August 2
So I've been on seriously limited (non-work time) internet access for almost a month now but that has all turned around as of yesterday now that our new computer arrived! Woo Hoo!!
On that note, in my email inbox I found this very cool deal ONLY THIS WEEK from Barnes&Noble
Buy one TV DVD Box set and get one free.
How's that for a nifty cool after holiday sale? Seriously, the SciFi
sets that are part of the deal include Firefly, Buffy, Stargate, Supernatural, Alias, Charmed and others. Unfortunately BSG is not included.
Not that I can really afford any of it post holidays...but still its worth considering using the evil credit card.
Anyhow, I hope you can take advantage...not to mention the buying power of DVD-on-TV box sets.
I am SUCH a geek.
LJ....I'm so far behind and its all RL related. I put off all fanfic for NaNoWriMo and failed utterly at that as well. *sigh*
OTOH, I did get two chapters done on my novel so may be that's enough to get me started.
Bottom line is that I've had so little computer play time, I'm really behind in flist reading. I mean REALLY behind. So it I missed something really important -- I'm so sorry!
I have LOADS of family photos to post at some point. If you don't want to wait and want some smiling kids to cheer up your day, email me and I'll send you the link to the snapfish albums.
Now, thanks to a post from cousin avicado
a while back, I've snagged the ( 50 most significant SciFi books...supposedly.Collapse )
