Begging…

Dear Firefox, You are a sucky ass browser. Sincerely, A disastified user who just lost all their bookmarks thanks to an automatic update I didn't authorize on the settings but happened anyway. (Again!) *sigh* Dear Flist, Got some links you'd like to share with me related to science fiction, science, computers, technology, space, engineering, television, BSG, Farscape, SG-1, SGA, Dresden Files, Doctor Who, vidding, artwork, graphics, Fanfic archives, Fandom forums, the Gimp, Photoshop, web design, music, and anything else you think I'd be interested in? *sad puppy eyes* Do it for Jake! *points to icon* You know you wanna. :-)...

Yang and Yin

Yang Most of the security updates at ThirdsphereNet are done, but the Forums are down as we figure out the glitch the security updates caused there. Yin I already have a job interview scheduled for Friday. Funny how things work out huh? Life's a flow, flow, flow.

Yin and Yang

Yin I was informed today that I and three others are being laid off due to a slowdown in available projects. So basically the four newest employees were released. So friday is the last day there. Kind of bummed about it, but not really upset. Just opens up other opportunities. Yang I went ahead and jumped the gun on updating ThirdsphereNet again. This time was just adding the new default scheme, XTC-Black from SevenofNine and Jae_9,  I intend to use until I finish working on the Thirdsphere-Alpha theme. I'll also continue the security updates and patching tomorrow evening since everything...

More thoughts on BSG “Crossroads, Pt2”

Well I'm home sick and bored so... The TAFT Cylons So apparently RDM is saying that Tyrol, Anders, Foster, and Tigh are in fact four of the final five Cylons. For the most part I wouldn't mind this supposed twist if it made any sense. Perhaps Mr. Moore will come up with an reasonable explanation in season 4, but for me it had better be sooner than later. Season 3 has erased my patience with half-assed stories, mischaracterizations, meandering plot threads that come out of no where, and retcon in BSG. In otherwords I tired of feeling like I am...

Warning: Spoilers! Battlestar Galactica 3.20 Crossroads, Pt 2 Plot: The trial of Gaius Baltar comes to a head. Viewing Comments (In no particular order): Hey! Where's my thumping drum intro. I miss the thumping drum intro.Adama ordering Roslin out of bed. Heh. "Butterfingers!" Heh.Um. Seelix already knows about avionics. Loved the actresses expression conveying that point.Racetrack!Gaeta, Gaeta, Gaeta, my poor, disillusioned, spiteful little vengeance monger you. Cottle! Doc! Yay!I guess they caught the cancer earlier enough for Roslin to go on Diloxin this time around. Liked Lee quoting Grandpa Adama. Tory and Anders. Huh. OK. Seelix is not a happy...

Taming the Beast

I finally updated the Thirdsphere image archive with another fifty or so icons and bits of artwork, including adding a BSG wallpaper I did sometime back July of 2006 titled Taming the Beast. The image may be viewed here. I also changed the skin to something easier on the eyes. More updates there in the coming days.

Jacked Up In the Desert: The Phoenix Lights

A new edition to Jacked Up In the Desert. (I think it's been over a year since I wrote a JUID entry here or at my other blogs.) Subject: The Phoenix Lights I find myself getting extremely annoyed that the myth of the "Phoenix Lights" being UFOs still persists ten years after the so called "event". It find it incomprehensible that people who were actually living on Phoenix at the time of the hub-bub don't remember the military personel admitting the "Lights" were in fact helicopters. Heck the "Lights" were flying in a common formation seen often around here at...
