 You know that thing where people post which books they are reading, so that they in the future can see when they read things?

They make me happy.

For The Birds made me cry with laughter, again.

None of the same people made these sites:

So, I was sitting on the steps that lead up from the road to my front door, when I get a phone call.

"Hi, this is Watir, I've been getting some weird readings from your area of the city. If you see anything odd, could you call me?"
"Sure" I say, and he hangs up.

Not five minutes later, there's an almighty crash, and a Delorean appears halfway though the steps!

The young driver is struggling to get out, so I make the phone call, and say...

I've made a concious decision to shift random link-spam away from IRC, Livejournal and Twitter and use Tumblr  for that kind of MLP instead. However, a shared thingy:

Okay, so there is this game called Left 4 Dead 2. It's about 15 quid.

In it, you shoot a lot of zombies.

I know three people who wish to buy this game, and if you buy a four pack it is £45, which is cheaper than buying four single copies.

Does anybody wish to get L4D2 under this scheme? 

(This the PC version of the game, and will require Steam)

 Scenes from an imaginary conversation with Microsoft Security Essentials:
 
WARK WARK WARK! SECURITY ISSUE! SECURITY ISSUE! WILL NOBODY CLICK ON MY CUTE ORANGE GRADIENTED ICON! THIS IS NOT A DRILL, NOR ANY KIND OF HACKSAW, THIS IS A MOTHERFUCKING SECURITY ISSUE AND YOU SHOULD CLICK ON ME RIGHT THE FUCK N..
 
"*click*"
 
Hi, can I help you? Incidentally, there is a SECURITY ISSUE, a SECURITY ISSUE, WILL NOBODY CLI..

YOUR COMPUTER IS UNPROTECTED
 
"... What? What isn't my computer protected from? I have install you, a virus checker, yes?"
 
YOU HAVE.
 
"And I have let you root around for spyware as you like, yes?"
 
INDEED.
 
"So what's up?"
 
YOU HAVE NOT PERFORMED A SCAN IN A WHILE.
 
"... Correct me if I'm wrong"
 
YOU'RE WRONG
 
"Thank you. But are you not a fully authorised security program, blessed to create your own scheduled tasks to ensure the safety and security of my system?"
 
YES. I AM A SECURITY PROGRAM.
 
"Not a security blanket?"
 
NO. SECURITY. DID YOU NOT SEE THAT I AM TELLING YOU OF THE MOTHERFUCKING SECURITY ISSUE?
 
"I did, and that is noted. In fact, that's the root core of the issue, in a way. Isn't doing security scans kind of... your job?"
 
WHAT?
 
"It says that you will automatically scan the system once a week. I instructed you to do so. I gave you little blue and yellow shield permissions."
 
I THANK YOU FOR MY LITTLE BLUE AND YELLOW SHIELD BADGE.
 
"So why, authorised security representative, are you not performing security scans?"
 
I WAS ASLEEP.
 
"..."
 
I WAS VERY TIRED.
 
"Fine. Go run your security sweep. Let me know what you find."
 
AFFERMATIVE. PERFORMING SECURITY SCAN NOW. THANK YOU FOR USING MICROSOFT SECURITY EXTENSIONS. HAVE A NICE DA...

Personal stuff and articles go on Dreamwidth as [personal profile] aquarion, generally either "Circle" or "Open". These are then mostly syndicated to Livejournal as aquarionical, this entry being the only exception so far (There is a version of this entry on LJ, with LJ accounts rather than DW ones).

Articles, less personal things and technical crapola go on Aquarionics, which is syndicated here as [syndicated profile] aquarionics_feed

Diaries of fictional people, including Maelstrom fic, D&D character diary entries and misc in-universe crap go onto The Hero Diaries, syndicated here as [syndicated profile] unrealistic_feed. Maelstrom fic will also generally get crossposted to the LJ Community LRPDrbbles.

Creative writing, including various aborted comics, drabbles, short stories and - eventually - other things are centred around Faction Fiction, syndicated here as [syndicated profile] factionfiction_feed
Thoughts and one-liners that do not deserve further thought are put on Twitter, which isn't syndicated anywhere, but does appear in a box on Aquarionics.

For my accounts everywhere else in the world, there are links on the Walrus Page

In case anyone's interested, tickets for Weird Al's first UK concerts are back on sale (there was a presale a couple of months ago). They're in Minehead on the 5th December, and London on the 6th. Me and Fyr will be going to the one in London. You can get tickets here, should that interest you in some way.

It was a dark and dismal morning the day I didn’t arrive at the convention, but I was fairly sure there was something strange going on. For starters, although it was close to when sunrise should be, there was not a sign the balcony. I could see the warning lights atop the dome, the flashing hazard lights of the olympic construction site, and the confused flickering of streetlights sure they should be turning off about now.

To the south I could see canary wharf and my first hint that this wasn’t any ordinary mysterious darkness cloaking the capital, because there appeared to be a white elephant sitting in the middle of town.

So, the sarcastic letter? Apparently worked.

I have a beige letter from Virgin Media, attached to a cheque for the full amount (Slightly over, by my calculations.)

So, always complain by letter.

Stuff's not happening here. It's happening here, when it happens at all. I do not intend to post here unless I'm saying something about things happening on LJ/DW.
