You know it's raining hard when you can feel the vibrations running through the interior walls of the house...

I'm impressed with the general quality of the stuff over on fanfiction.net.  Seems much better than a few years back.  Or I've just shifted to a better quality fandom. O_o

Just cancelled my #Adobe  contract.  They sure don't make it simple, but at least I got asked the magic question (even if it was most likely asked by a bot): Why are you cancelling?

Because I have a linux machine.  And you refuse to consider porting it, so I now refuse to throw money at you.

I did promise to come back and throw money again, if they ported it, but I'm fairly certain my money is safe.

I missed the Great Google Outage.  I was watching Stardust for the first time.

Favourite bits?  The judging panel made up of dead brothers.  

Fantastic movie, I'm guessing it's not so well known because something with a bigger budget came out at the same time, which is a shame.  Really sweet story (although I'm pleased they didn't go into the same detail about the unicorn as the book did).

So... do I save my pennies and, in about eight months, go and buy a laptop preloaded with any linux distro of my choice, thereby supporting a growing market and showing my support in one of the bestest ways possible...

Or do I go and buy a Win8 machine off the shelf tomorrow for $500 less, with three times more RAM than I'd be getting otherwise, and then try and figure out 'secure boot' bollocks.

Thanks Sierra, just needed someone to back me up... I was pretty sure the decision was made in that direction :)

The cute, it's tiny.  Teeny tiny, and probably hiding under my bed.
When you hear the word “cute,” “spider” is probably not the first word that pops into your head. But photographer Thomas Shahan is out to change all that with his incredible macro photographs of doe-eyed jumping spiders. Jumping spiders are unusual in that the majority of them do not ...

Nothing quite as entertaining as the #eqnz  tag on twitter after a decent jolt.  6.3ish this arvo, and I was standing up, so didn't feel a thing.  Feel a bit rude calling for a replay though....

Today's mission: fog the house.  Dawson, the carrier, was dosed yesterday, and has been sulking in a cardboard in the backyard ever since.

The floor and furnishings are all prepped and ready - just waiting for the blankets to finish shrinking in the washing machine, then we have to go shopping for a good hour or so.

Hope the smell isn't too noxious when we return.

Story
Introduction
Wannabe geek.  Linux user newly returned from a holiday in Win7.  G+ user.  Worshipper of cats.  Well, one cat.

Interested in books and writing, science fiction and photography, although I'm an amateur fan of the whole lot.

Chronic lurker - I read everything I can find but rarely have much to add.  Currently having a go at reviving a catch-all blog on Wordpress where I ramble about all sorts of things designed to appeal to practically no one.
