Over on the Making Light blog, between various discussions about the current Hugo situation, a subthread cropped up about would exposure to the Elder Gods be as instantly-insane-making today as when Lovecraft was writing. There's some great bits to that discussion at the link below (I linked to the comment where it started to get really good, about #960 on that page).

On a related note, does anyone have a good distance estimate, and perhaps suggested driving directions, from Arkham to Castle Rock?

I posted on LJ about my current health issues, and trip to the ER.

They don't know where it came from. It appears to be 10x7x2cm in size, which is much larger than I was expecting.

My PCP feels it's consistent with a Bakers Cyst rupturing, and that also would explain why my knee has returned to normal extents of motion (it is no longer being limited by the cyst).

My set-top box sucks. Anyone have a suggestion for something better (and relatively inexpensive)? Anyone have experience with Chromecast devices or similar?

I got a SONY BluRay player that does streaming video. We don't watch BluRay disks, but we do watch NetFlix, Amazon Instant Video, YouTube, and a couple of other services. 

My problem with the SONY box is multifold: It doesn't remember our service details; rather it fetches them from SONY's servers. When they go down, we are cut off. SONY adds new services all the time, but doesn't provide a way for me to remove them, so when I want to watch YouTube I have to scroll past lots of services I never use and don't want. I have been unable to get it to handle DLNA reliably, and can't remove old DLNA servers it has detected, but no longer exist, especially in favor of new DLNA servers on the same hardware.

I guess what I want is a small HTPC-like device that can stream what I want to stream and keeps a small amount of data locally. I don't need something with TBs of storage that can do everything, unless it's fairly cheap.

Chromecasts seem like a good option for all my needs, but Amazon doesn't play nicely with them (without workarounds). Any other similar option?

At brunch with +Eva Snyder today I told her about the documentary series on YouTube called "Every Frame a Painting". It's about various aspects of movie making and composition. I recommend it.

If you didn't date nerds you wouldn't get harassed like this. Put a question out there and you're going to get opinions :p

+Jenn C +kaaren kaaren I think you both binge-watch shows. here's some to keep in mind, and how long they'll last.
 
Time flies when you're binge-watching.

One of the graphics is below, but there are two more with other great shows, like 24, Game of Thrones, and Walking Dead at the links in our post: http://lifehacker.com/inforgraphics-show-how-long-it-takes-to-binge-watch-81-1695391121
