PLEASE NOTE: For some reason, many many older posts of mine now have broken links instead of images. I will be working through all my previous posts verrry slowly and fixing them eventually, but if you find a post of mine with broken graphic links that you want to read sooner, drop a comment on it and I'll bump it to the head of the queue for recoding/reuploading the graphics and let you know when it's fixed. Thank you for your patience.
LJ Support is implementing a workaround (YAY! \o/), everything should be okay now, but please do let me know if you find any broken image links and I'll look into them. :-)

Mood:annoyed annoyed

Because I've been getting so many spam comments, I've made the commenting in this mirror journal Friends Only. Feel free to PM me or visit my primary site under the same name over at LiveJournal.

ETA ...Aaaaand since I just noticed it's dropping all my filtered posts into straight 'friends-only' posts which is SO NOT COOL I CAN'T EVEN START, I will not be friending anyone back on this Journal because to go through every post and edit the filter status is... yeah. So, as a result, this journal is strictly a mirror.

Which sucks. :-P

I've always said I'd stick with Livejournal until it dies, but the limit has now been reached. So, unfortunately, over the next long while I will be transferring my primary journal activities to my Dreamwidth fractured mirror.

You're all welcome to follow me on there, but I won't be friending back (or whatever they call it) for a long while until I can figure out how to reinstate the filters on some filtered posts. Right now everything is far too exposed over there. This will be a very rocky process.

I'm also looking for:
-Clear simple instructions on how to download and backup the stuff I have in Livejournal's Scrapbook, along with its folder structuring.
-An image hosting service that's cheap/free and reliable and offers at least 2gb of space.
-Places on Dreamwidth to find fandom communities there.

I'm sure more things will crop up as this process gets underway.

If I manage to write anything during this period, it will be posted to my AO3 account I do have a semi-active tumblr that I'm currently reblogging a lot of Merlin and random things on, and very rarely posting anything myself.

Got a call and a vague yet urgent message from the property manager at quarter after 8 AM today. Spent 90 minutes fending off a panic attack trying to get hold of him to find out what was going on, because his phone line was going to the answering service until 9 am, and then he was not in the office and I had to wait for a callback.

The landlord is putting the place on the market. I need to take time off work to let a realtor in to take pictures of the place, and then more time off work to let random people wander around in it whenever they feel like it. I've been through this crap twice before and the situation pretty much triples my regular anxiety levels. I really don't need that, especially considering tax season is in more than full swing and I'm already drowning trying to keep up with the crap at work.

In short, I'm probably going to move rather than put up with this bullshit again. Somehow.

Happy freaking birthday. :-P


In other news, I see some much happier birthday greetings in my inbox! Thank you guys, I'll be reading and responding to you later tonight probably. :-)

"10 Minutes at Nubble Light House" by Hank Green of YouTube is lovely and relaxing. It's just a sunset, a lighthouse, and gentle waves.

I found this fascinating. I'd heard of most of these things before but not really how some of them worked. Good reference for writing or roleplaying things involving historical ocean travel.

An Unaltered Version Of The Original Star Wars Trilogy May Be Released This Year

OH HOLY CRAP YES PLEASE!

To my knowledge theyve never had a DVD release of the unaltered originals. I have the VHS set of the remastered but not CGI-added movies released in 1997-ish, a set which has been one major reason I have been trying to get a working VCR for the past year.

Bluray? DVD? BRING IT!! \o/

Haunting, sad, and beautiful fanvid for Doctor Who.

Subject: News Of The Nifty: "Hidden Figures" Movie coming out soon
Security: Public
Tags:movie, nasa, rec, space exploration, tumbled



This is a movie based on the lives of real women in the NASA space program in 1961. And if there was any fairness, the Johnson Space Center would be named after one of them instead of a President.

The only reason I've heard about this movie is because I'm on the NASA press release email list, and the only reason I know it's coming out so soon is because I follow Chris Hadfield on Twitter. I am stunned that I have not heard or seen anything else anywhere about this movie (although I don't get to theatres very often and don't watch enough broadcast TV to see many commercials, so maybe it is being promoted well and I just live under a rock.)

If you are interested in women in STEM, equal rights for women and for people of color, NASA history, spaceflight, math, or learning about people history should have celebrated a lot sooner and a lot louder, this is a movie you will want to see.


(Note: I will also be posting this on my Tumblr page, so those of you following me in both places will see it twice)

So I'm catching up on watching the new Doctor Who spin-off Class, and I've made a post over on tumblr about one thing, but I just have to say I am REALLY having a hard time taking the blood-sucking floral tribbles flower petals seriously. Like I'm at the part where people on the street are thrashing around getting eaten alive by mounds of flower petals and laughing so hard I can't breathe.

50 years since the first episode aired September 8th, 1966, and still boldly going where no one has gone before.

To celebrate, here are two of my favourite upbeat Star Trek fanvids. One from The Original Series and one from Reboot Era.

Through a series of dubious financial maneuvers that should still let the rent clear tomorrow as long as the bank fees don't come out first, I went to see the new Star Trek movie on cheap night tonight, since I thought it was probably leaving the theatre soon (but the showing was packed and it looked like was still playing in two theatres, so now I'm not sure.)

In case anyone's interested, I have a couple things to say about it which contain spoilers. )

(I also made a simple Trek icon *points at icon* if you want to use it, go ahead and grab it, please credit me if you do.)
