my new blog thing

The type of thing I used to post here will probably now go on a wordpress blog I make somewhere instead, like this one: http://www.subversion.onceuponaninternet.com/

Updates probably not super-regularly, but, lo, wordpress haveth RSS by default.  A winner is you.

Now, I must leave, before the Russians come in their fur hats and vodka-induced frenzy and rip out my testicles to wear as jewelery.

I keep this account open to check friendy page things

As good an excuse as any

This thing with LJ deleting nambla accounts or whatevs is vaguely distressing.  If they're going to be going about doing massive keyword-based content moderation, I'm going to be going about moving my affairs elsewhere.  Anyway, gives me an excuse to backup all the crap I have on here which I've been meaning to do anyway.  Though F*CKING ANNOYINGLY I have to do it one-month-at-a-time, and even worse there is no way to export comments.  Also probably a good opportunity to set up my google reader stuff.  Though I guess LJ doesn't do rss feeds?  Guess I'll keep my account for tracking everyone who still posts stuff on here.

Anyway, if, like me, you don't actually use friend-locking / private entries, but you want to flee LJ, I recommend getting an account on Blogger or Wordpress.

I'll post another thing when I decide what to do with this facet of my public intarwub presence, if anything.  This LJ has already mostly been eclipsed by ZoD and GLWP.

There is another bright-side: now I can be like, GUYS I AM DELETING MY LIVEJOURNAL

A particular brand of madness

This is how you know I'm an engineer.  Today I purchased and unpacked a 10,000 BTU "portable" (i.e. not a window unit) air conditioner.  It had several pieces and a bag of screws.  It did not come with assembly instructions.  My first thought after not finding instructions was, "Muahaha.  This will make it INTERESTING!"

I'm in a bizarrely good mood for some reason.

Vicious Delicious

which is the new Infected Mushroom album that came out a month or two ago, is made out of pwnage.  I'd forgotten that I got it, and I noticed it tonight.  If you like  Psychedelic Electronica, definitely check this out.  My ears are orgasming with pleasure.

Comparative Self-esteem

Youtube is almost as good as a dive bar.

I am apparently entirely unable to conceal how nervous I get at job interviews.  Or in general.  I remember when I tried to donate blood a few years back I freaked the nurse out because I kept fidgeting and she thought I was going to faint.  This isn't a huge deal, but I'm considering practicing some mental controls to make me look  more relaxed.  I usually look more nervous than I actually am, due to my tendency to keep moving all the time (shoe-tapping, finger flexing, etc).

In my dreams last night, among other things, people had a habit of spontaneously breaking down (mentally and physically) into component parts.  They would often later reappear constructed out of whatever parts and memories were laying around.  Sometimes people merged; sometimes they forked.  It was sort of like if Salvadore Dali had decided to write a post-singularity science fiction novel.

Oh there was also a big climactic battle that kept wanting to turn into Helm's Deep.  Eventually the Wizard (Merlin in this case) just flew back a bit and killed every one of his enemies at once with a single thought.

I've realized I frequently speak out loud the messages I am sending people when conversing online, as I submit them.

(16:57:54) FoolishSeth: pennies aren't money
(16:58:01) FoolishSeth: that means any money I get from that machine is free
(16:58:25) FoolishSeth: That means if I buy ice cream with it it's free ice cream.
(16:58:30) Post042: ...yes
(16:58:35) FoolishSeth: sweet
(16:59:03) FoolishSeth: So I just found out they're giving out free ice cream down the street; brb
