I have a new camera! I need to learn how to use it! Also! Since it seems that I am incapable of writing anything at length, I thought this would be the perfect time to post photos!

So! Anything in particular you want to see?

I won't post pictures of myself, that's the only catch.

I hate my internet connection. Hate hate hate. I have lost count how many times it has fizzled out today. Even when it was working, it was pretty damn slow, but I am already too pissed off at my current service provider to upgrade to a better account. The one that I have now is not supposed to be bad. And rumour has it that the upgrade doesn't do much anyway.

Waiting for the connection to come back so that I can access web pages is bad enough, but bearable. The intermittent connection killing my SSH sessions and disconnecting me from IRC -- that is just evil. Especially getting disconnected from the SSH session. ARGH. I was doing something, damn it.

(. . . What the heck, the connection died again as I was typing this. This is why I draft everything elsewhere.)

Sigh. Let's see if we can balance this with some good news. Here we go:

  • I now have an Archive of Our Own account! If you need a reason why you should support the effort, it's this: FANDOM OWNS THE SERVERS. That has to be the most awesome thing ever. You can request for invites here.
  • I finally managed to upload the patch for bug 1886 and made a bit more progress with bug 1813 before the internet connection went nuts. Damn you internet connection!
  • Uh. Off the internet, I've managed to potter around the garden a bit and trimmed some of the wayward looking plants, so the garden looks a bit tidier. It won't last with all the rain we're having, but I can live with that.

Why are weekends so short! The other weekend projects listed in last post are definitely doomed.

askjhfldhff;;; The connection died again just before I hit post. Did I mention that I hate my internet connection. Yeah.

I do not understand why people punctuate sentences with LOL. Well, to be fair, I guess people don't understand why I end my sentences with XD either. But every other sentence? Why? It's not that there is anything particularly funny in the post.

I sound snippy. Sigh. I guess I've been feeling slightly down these days, cause undetermined. I feel vaguely distressed over a number of things (and the fact that I can't even pinpoint what it is that's troubling me troubles me even more) and then I keep thinking, why am I being silly over things I can do nothing about? And I end up getting more upset. Yeah. Someone knock me out of this stupid loop.

Today is Friday, Friday, Friday. (. . . And now it's Saturday. I take way too long to draft posts.) I have so many things I want to do I end up doing none of them.

What I keep planning to do:
  • Upload that patch for bug 1816 again. I can't even get this simple thing properly submitted. Sheesh. (This actually needs tweaks. There have been themes -- well, at least one theme; I am horribly behind in everything -- added for Negatives, so I might as well set colours for those as well.)
  • Work on bug 1813. There is progress here, I swear. (I should try non-styles things next. Try to pick up more Perl. Spend some time actually going through tutorials.)
  • Finish Dorothy Dunnett's Gemini, because otherwise I'll never go to bed on time. (Damn you, Nicholas.)
  • Write a book review, or two, or three. (I've been saying this since when, now?)
  • Finish sewing that curtain. (Yes, it is still on my floor.)
  • Replay Final Fantasy XII.
  • Write fic!

Archive of Our Own open beta starts soon! Isn't that grand!
