- I - and my friends - can use whatever name is most pleasing.
- We can post to a limited group if we so choose.
- We can maybe add tags to our posts, so people can more easily find my posts that they are most interested in.
- We can maybe post unsafe material, and indicate it as such.
- Rich formatting. I loves me the rich formatting.
- It needs a rich source of communities and groups for finding people with common interests.
Yeah. It does sound kind of familiar.
So - hey, LJ. How you doing? It's been a while.

I could also try logging in more often.
Got to walk around a lot, visit Chapters so the wife could get her Mr. Dressup DVD, and see several great Canadian indie bands performing together for New Year’s Eve. Folks were friendly, and the drinks flowed freely. Big thumbs up for Vancouver. It was a fun but gentle introduction to international travel.
Doctor Who had an impact on science fiction all over the globe. Heck, I knew who the Doctor was at age 13, despite not having seen a single episode. Now that the “reboot” is on to its third Doctor, I figure I might as well see what all the fuss was originally about. The main challenge will be finding all episodes, since the BBC apparently lost a few.
"It was a minor technical accomplishment"
How I did it: Most of the work was in transforming the whole-site-in-one file format I was using for WebMake to the one-file-per-page format for Webgen. I definitely like the accompanying designs, and the tags are easy to work with. I *know* I'll be fiddling with it more, and I may even migrate away from Webgen later.
Lessons & tips: Study the documentation and don't be afraid to experiment.
It took me 5 days.
It made me ambivalent
So I picked up a new book ("Sensational Knitted Socks" by Charlene Schurch), which looks to have a lot of great sock guidelines rather than a handful of one-size-fits-all-but-whoever-you-made-i

Wait a minute, this ain't twitter. Oh well. Thanks to general stress, I'm really having trouble getting tired at a reasonable time. Thanks to dermatographia (the world's most annoying minor ailment), I have lovely red itchy blotches in random patches of my skin.
What else? Job hunting. I'm pretty sure the insomnia and the frequent job hunting are related in some way. I don't know if there's a specific causation going on here, but there is definitely some correlation going on. Now I just need to figure out why the heck my best hours are from 10pm to 6 am and either fix it or get a job that embraces it. This has been an issue since I was about 10, incidentally. Definitely not what you'd call a new thing.
I wonder if my hours had any bearing on the fact that a lot of my best friends were the goth and punk kids when I was younger, despite the fact that I'm about as punk / goth as Fred Rogers. Okay, a clinically depressed Fred Rogers that smoked and drank coffee, but work with me here.
Actually, Fred Rogers was kind of a freak, now that I think of it.
And now I'm getting punchy, the precursor to tired. That's actually a good thing. I'll see about applying to a couple more jobs and go to bed.

So I'm poking around at the few gaming books I still have, and enjoy a few nostalgic giggles over Hol, the cheekily inappropriate and endearingly handmade role playing game of adventure and slaughter and stuff in a dark far future. It was mostly just silly, but I did manage to play it a few times. Man, that was fun. What I remember was fun, anyways. There may have been alcohol involved. Or just really good coffee.
After looking at the books (yes, I own the full line - both books), I did what I always do these days. I went to Google to see if I could learn more. Turns out there was more. A second edition was released in 2002, with four extra pages! I must have that. There were also rumblings of a plush wastem. I want that, too. And if I cannot buy one (because you know maybe they never gathered enough money to produce them), I will make it myself.
