Thirdsphere note and randomness

Thirdsphere Update It seems the web site hosts has ThirdsphereNet back up and running, though a bit slowly. So yay for that. I think I'll wait until tomorrow or this weekend to finish the planned updates and new poll. Randomness "I am the electric Buddha." That freakin' phrase has been running around my head all day thanks to a whacked out dream last night where my cat said that line to me. O.o I have no idea where the phrase came from but hopefully it'll now go away. Legend of the Seeker fanfic note LotS fic is going well (and...

ThirdsphereNet update…sorta

Figures this would happen when I have some time to work on the website. Well, I was going to announce today that the new banner for ThirdsphereNet was now up for viewing but apparently the host provider is  having some sort of intermittent problem. Seems a number of sites are inaccessible at the moment (according the forums and an associate of mine) and have been since yesterday. I had no problem yesterday when I was fixing up the Babylon 5 section but have had problems today since the gallery and banner update. Anyway, hopefully they'll have whatever issues solved soon. ...

And she's blonde. I think the actress did a good job as the reincarnated Sister Nicci.Point: What is a Mord'Sith doing with the Sisters of the Dark in the Old World? Not being picky, just curious.Heh. Zedd and Richard fussing and practically drooling over their campsite cuisine was amusing. Gars! Sweet. The F/X for the Gars are much better this time, even...

Randomness

I love my new flat screen monitor. So much better for the eyes. I'm no longer enslaved to a CRT! Woohoo. (The CRT fried out on me, finally.) I have an urge to visit Russia and Kazakhstan again.
