Man, I have this weird inability to avoid reading posts about the OTW as they fly through [livejournal.com profile] metafandom and such, and I am so sick of "blah blah blah the womens are oppressing me" wank and "blah blah blah we're being outed to TPTB" wank.

Why can't we have some good Slashdot-style wank over what license we're going to be using for the archive? I mean, we should get some GPLv3 haters, of course, and some rabid BSDers involved. Plus, we could invite FSF groupies to the party. They're always a riot.

Oooooh, how about a long MySQL vs. ProtegreSQL flamewar? I love those.

Seriously, people. I need a change of pace here. You all should get on this right away.


Aaaaaaaaaaaaanyway, I am finding Flickr's The Commons project ridiculously cool. Lookit all the gorgeous pictures! I know that it seems like a sort of half-assed attempt at crowd-sourcing by the Library of Congress, but seriously, I think it's awesome.


I also have this desire to talk about myself my fic. So, poll! It's approval voting, so choose as many or as few as you like.

i.

So, it's my turn at [livejournal.com profile] ficcommentary, feel free to vote.


ii.

Nightvision got a makeover. Check it out.


iii.

I rather enjoyed my Thanksgiving. Yay. Ate lots of food, bought a hat and scarf on Black Friday, did lots of walking. Good times, good times.


iv.

I also watched inordinately large amounts of America's Next Top Model and Project Runway. DON'T JUDGE ME. YOU DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT TO JUDGE ME.


v.

In honor of "shippers don't like females of any kind in their slash stories", let's make more stupid generalizations!

Ooh, let me start. Het writers suck, because they write heteronormative crap! And they're all teenybopper shippers anyway.


vi.

Woohoo! Razor tonight!


v.

Also, Joe Flanigan on his hair. Seriously.

The Investments professor had her husband give the lecture, which was vaguely amusing. As was the fact that he tried to scare us away with some Statistics, but, in my case, completely failed because it was nowhere near as bad as the Statistics that we went over in Econometrics.

Anyway, I live in a program house with a lot of nerds, so this amused me a lot.

And on a related note, a photomeme, stolen from a few different people:

Comment with something you want me to take a photo of, and I will.

Have at it.

I saw Superman Returns again in a nearby drive-in with [livejournal.com profile] dryadinthewood last night, and a few of the things that were bothering me about it bothered me much less. Namely Lex Luthor and Lois Lane. Other things that were bothering me, still bothered me. Namely, the pacing.

But I still love it lots.

(Though not as much as Batman Begins, but that's just me.)

I will probably ramble about them both again some other time.

At the moment, I'm kind of working on this odd Clark gen piece that I don't think anyone will read.

I also managed to get XGL/Compiz working with GNOME. (They're shiny Mac-like window/desktop effects, for the uninformed.) I am digging it muchly. It seems to have a tendency to crash however, so I'm looking for solutions for that. Also, it sometimes likes my right Alt key, sometimes it doesn't.

I am really digging on Writely, which is this online word processor thing. There's this nifty collaboration feature as well that I haven't been able to test. If this works out, it could make betaing so much easier on a lot of counts, as well as really cool thing for people who collaborate on fics. It is also useful for those moments when I get really bored in lab or during TA hours, I bet.

I am also doing something for [livejournal.com profile] fst, a "car chases and fight scenes" mix. I have it all put together at the moment, and while it may change in the future, I am still quite happy with it.

Rar. Bad mood. I know I lost points for some stupid shit on my test. And that's just the ones I know I screwed up. Fuck. Rar. OMG. May go see a student-written play tonight with [livejournal.com profile] stars_inthe_sky, we'll see. Am contemplating watching the Office and getting Chinese food. I miss eating lots and lots of take-out.

I realized that if I do [livejournal.com profile] yuletide, I'll have to get it done really early, because I will most likely be away in Hong Kong and Shanghai with my parents and other assorted relatives for that entire last week of December. I will have to remember that. Unfortunately, that means I'll miss squeeing over any fic I may receive. 'Tis sad.
