The dark is generous, and it is patient, and it always wins—but in the heart of its strength lies weakness: one lone candle is enough to hold it back.

Love is more than a candle.

Love can ignite the stars.

Don't you think Bush looks tired?

The really nifty music from the first Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire trailer? That I've been trying to figure out where it's from for months?

Turns out it's actually from the movie (which is a surprise, since trailers rarely include music from the movie proper).

If you'll excuse me, I'll be keeping track 3 on repeat for a while. :D

Damn.

Why didn't anybody remind me that NaNo started today? *glares at [livejournal.com profile] paranoidangel_*

*ahem*

Progess: 0/50,000

I am a bloody idiot.

15 hours—admittedly off and on—trying to figure out why the results from a checkbox in an HTML page wasn't being sent to the server like it should.

I forget to mark in the page that it was something that needed to be sent.

I am a bloody idiot.

Okay, now, I understand why would would release novelizations of movies, or of TV episodes, that won't be available on DVD for a while. Especially when you have said novelization come out near the related work, and it's likely to include significant extras. That makes sense.

What doesn't make sense is releasing a novelization for a two-year-old miniseries, already available on DVD, and long enough that I don't think there's any significant room for expansion.

Let's just say I'm not overly excited about the BSG novel line at the moment.... :-/

Have finished …Half-Blood Prince. Am irked to see that J.K. Rowling hasn't gained a sense of pacing yet. <_<

First time. Had fun.

Highlights: First and foremost, meeting everyone in person. (They aren't as crazy as they are online—they're worse.) Being surprised that Bob Greenberger and Richard White recognized my name—I bitch enough that it's no surprise the others did. ;) (Aside: Dark Legacy really needs to be bumped up my "to be read" list. But then, so does The Last World War, which I've owned since it came out but still haven't read. I'd say I'm sorry... except Dayton probably doesn't give a shit, especially since he has my money. :p) Seeing a Jaffa inspecting a pink R2 unit. Everything not below.

Lowlights: being forced out of the bar after, oh, fifteen minutes. Smoke and me mix even less than I thought. I'm not sure if I coincidentally got sick, or if my general nasal issues Sunday/today were an allergic reaction. Do appreciate Tammy's trying to make me more welcome, though. Also, not staying in the con hotel. That's being rectified, though, once the website's allowing reservations for next year.

Things I wish I'd done: had stuff for people to sign at Meet the Pros; felt somewhat awkward without it. ("I read the books, but I don't have any.") Actually staying in the bar, though it's better that I didn't. Heckling Keith on the SCE panel. (Almost did, then realized that it could've been awkward if true.)

All in all, a good experience. :)

Yay! I have RAM! Yippee!

*ahem* Now I'm up to 1.5 GB, from 512 MB. And World of Warcraft is actually playable under Windows, even in Lagforge—err, Ironforge. I shudder to think of what heights of performance it'll reach under Linux.

Best $70 I spent in a while. :D

My computer savviness is greater than 97% of all people in the world! How do you compare? Click here to find out!

I think it's the fact that I admitted to using Windows that kept me from hitting 100%....

"For I am a Jedi, like my father before me."

Says the kid who blew up a Death Star. The only completed, fully-staffed one, as opposed to the still-under-construction one Wedge and Lando blew, and the skeletal prototype Wedge blew in the Jedi Academy trilogy, both of which would've had few (very few, only a couple dozen in the latter case) crewmembers aboard, and likely none of the auxillaries (read: stormies and pilots).

I wonder who's killed more people, father or son? Even if you include droids on daddy's behalf?

Grr...

I only just found out that the artists for what're probably my first and third favorite sets of cover art (New Earth/Challenger and Kristine Kathryn Rusch's Retrieval Artist series) are not only the same person, but the person who did the art for another set which ranks pretty highly ([livejournal.com profile] karentraviss's Wess'har Wars series), Greg Bridges.

D'oh.

And looking through his site, there's another piece that I recognized, too. Makes me wonder how much more of his work is among my favorites. :p

I realize that I never actually talk about anything personal here, unlike others. Dunno why.

(Actually, that's a lie twice over. I don't like to talk about myself—I mainly got a LiveJournal in order to comment and have a Friends page—and even if I did my life is rather static since I don't like to even consider upsetting the status quo. C'est ma vie.)

Snurched from Terri Osborne: I am Winter. )

I didn't actually read the description before posting. But... that's pretty damn accurate. :-/

David Mack, courtest of www.stellarcross.org
You are David Mack, AKA The Angel of Death. You are
the author of such works as Star Trek: SCE:
Wildfire and probably other things as well,
though I can't be sure because your website is
not accessible at the moment. You should look
into getting some more bandwidth for that thing
with your sweet, sweet Harbinger money. Your
picture above comes from your interview with
www.stellarcross.org.


Are you Dayton Ward or David Mack?

"Across the Stars" is a beautiful piece of music. But it's not doing a damn thing to keep me awake.

I really need to sleep more than four hours a night. :-/

Snurched from David H.: What D&D Class are you? )Not what I expected; I would've figured myself more for a druid or magic user. I wonder if it was the "no God" stuff that did me in.
