I can't feel my fingers and I can't control my accent. You know what that means...

Yes. I live. I however have taken to posting what few updates I feel like sharing to FB or T. I am still watching, here, and have no plans to delete. But updating with real content? Dunno.

 Leg: deep sebacious cyst that encircled a nerve fiber, giving me false symptoms.

Chest: dysplastic compound nevus. Basically, if I let it grew up, it'd be a melanoma, but we caught it and cut it well before that stage.

Whoever's paying attention this week? Thank you.

There's a site called spokeo.com and it's an online phone book that has pictures that anyone can view, credit score, profession, address and home value, income , # of children, profession, age and more is offered to anyone who pays for it! Remove yourself by the Privacy button on the bottom right. (ripped from the FB feeds)

 There is something wildly annoying about being as awake as I am right now and not sure what to do.

Guess it's time to fire up Bill.

Stolen unashamedly from Koinu ([livejournal.com profile] caffeinepuppy ) here

LiveJournal has started snooping on outbound clicks, sliently redirecting outbound links through "outboundlink.net." This is enabled even for paid users, and the opt-out is so hidden/out of the way that what they're doing is simply unconscionable.

Here's an example link: http://www.amazon.com/Applied-Cryptography-Protocols-Algorithms-Source/dp/0471117099/
Javascript is used to make the url in the status bar appear normal when you hover over it, until you actually click on the link. To see that it is actually being redirected for tracking, right-click on the link and copy the url, then paste it into something like notepad.

Fortunately, there is a way to opt out:
1. Open the Admin Console at http://www.livejournal.com/admin/console/
2. Execute the following command: set opt_exclude_stats 1

I also recommend adding the following to your ad-blocker:
• outboundlink.net
• l-stat.livejournal.com/js/pagestats/dRev.js
Supposedly, they pulled the offending code last night, but still. Keep in mind, this was done on *all* accounts, including paid ones.

I haven't even checked in the last month.

I may have a post. After I take a machete to the flist.

SG*U. Very very BSGy. And I'm not sure that's in a good way.

/em is deafened by the feedback!

So, um, yeah. I haven't posted in ... (I refuse to look). Let's have a run-down, then.

I am still working on my PhD. Passed my comps (or at least the committee thinks I did, so I'll take it). Still have to write the damn thing, and since I'm reworking the entire concept to a more Linguistic bent (what I wanted to do anyway), I may have to shuffle my committee some. Fun times will be had by none, let me tell you what.

I am officially living by myself now. Hey, I'm 30, it was time. ^^ Anyway, nice 2/1 apartment literally just off-campus. I'm looking forward to being able to walk to work in the fall. This summer? Not so much. But it's a lot more convenient than the previous place, as it was pretty much off in the boonies. And it's nice, having my own place, where the furniture is where I want it, and any flaws in the place are my fault, which means I'm not as neurotic about what other people are doing to my comfort zone.

Still teaching. They forget to tell you it's addictive, your first day. Still teaching in Journalism, and isn't it so much fun, what with the department becoming its own college. But when I consider the options for jobs out there...

I am still perennially single. A complete lack of knowledge of where to find a dating pool doesn't help. Or even newdifferent people to talk to. I value my current friends. A LOT. Why some of you have yet to kill me, I do not know. But my collection of friends here in Denton that I spend any great majority of time with is down to two. Twegen. Duos. This is not a good thing.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not trying to replace friends. But I'm bored. I want to meet new people, get out of the apartment, actually maybe live.

Do I have any how? Not a one. I started going to fellowship, partly cause I needed to, partly to meet people, and I value every minute of it, but I'm in sort of a gap age group. And as for putting myself online in some fashion? I just dunno. And since Denton seems to be allergic to 24-hour coffee shops now, and the only gay bar in town is kinda sorta a dive? Not really good places to meet people, let alone hang out.

Blah. Old rant. I could probably block-text search that last paragraph and find it in an earlier post. SS, DD, and I'm not talking floppies.

Glitch (n.) — “an embarrassing and ham-fisted cataloging error”, from GMSV

Do I buy it? Not completely. Is it a rational, reasonable excuse? Yes.

As a reminder to everyone drawing a W-2 from UNT, all campus addresses changed - make sure you correct this if you use tax software!

Okay, boys,

You want a reason to not smoke Marijuana? How about the boys?

Clicky for the YouTube, if you're curious. A little bit of SNES nostalgia has been resurrected. And I solemnly swear, I am not rick-rolling you - that would be here.

So my CPU video card and thermal unit on my main laptop are melting down. The corner fans aren't moving enough air either, and the video assembly sits on top of the wireless card/antenna. I'm debating pricing a new laptop, since it may will be less of a cost/hassle than trying to replace the video card/thermal assembly of a 2-3 year old Dell laptop. And maybe the wireless card too.

My desktop is still in full OS meltdown since I haven't gotten a Linux distro yet to boot it (thank you XP SP3 for completely crashing my Windows install).

My old laptop is old. And as cranky as you can make a 6ish-year-old install of XP.

Until such point that the gods of technology aren't pouring some liquid on my head, my presence online at home is as much a factor of luck as anything else. Fair warning ;;

Willing to bet this would be a fighting game you'd be all over...
