Which File Extension are You?Which is highly appropriate for someone in tech support, I think. (More appropriate would be .hlp or .chm, but I don't know if those are options).
To which race of Middle Earth do you belong?

Well, the first day of con was survived. We met up with a couple who lives in the area; DW met the wife of the couple via the needlework list she runs, but they are also gamers, and knew of some of my gaming friends.
The end of the day was the Voltaire concert. 10,000 screaming goths, it seemed like. But it was fun, though a little low-key...
We'll see how the rest of the weekend goes - it turns out that I managed to find stuff I was interested in to occupy me from 10 am to 5 pm tomorrow.
So here I am at Icon again, and I remembered the necessary to get online from the con. (Forgot almost everything else but that - including my entire laptop bag - at home, but luckily my laptop, the power adapter for it, and the necessary to connect my laptop to my phone (no EVDO card for me) came with me.
Once again, I preregistered, and once again was glad of it. Only had a 25 minute wait in line, and was able to pick up my badge. I'm currently waiting for a Dungeon Delve session to start up...
Anyone out there got advice on a place to host some images to link to from here? I don't want to use personal webspace from my ISP for a variety of reasons.
Requirements. Must be free. Must not sell my contact info or spam me (I don't care all that much about ads on the host itself.) Doesn't have to have a large amount of space.
The top 10 blog sites link over in the nave bar shows me at #6, behind skinning the frog, and in front of Life as an Air Force Wife. And I have 2 posts in the last 2 months! Is that right? Or has a databse glitched?
I know I got a couple of highly-ranked posts, but still...
Also, another thing I've noticed - my Top Articles list on the right is much different for me when I'm logged in than if I'm not. If I'm not, it draws off the articles on my front page, but if I am, it shows the all-tim...
I haven't been blogging much recently. There's a couple of reasons for that, but the main one is that I haven't been insriped to. With that in mind, I decided to do a little post on what I don't, won't, or haven't blogged on in the past year:
Firstly, my blogiversary. Feb 20th 2004 was my first post, if I remember my logs aright. I just forgot it until recently.
Personal things I haven't blogged about include myself, my family, and my firends. The main reason for this is that this blog is ...
In the spirit of James Taranto's (Of the Wall Street Journal) successful attempt to bring the word Kerfuffle back into more general use, I would like to bring the terms laconic andperipatetic back into daily use. (Definitions here andhere).
As you can see by following my word links, I'm particularly trying to attach them to one of the leading lights of blogdom (a word which I much prefer to blogosphere, myself). Can we get a google-bomb going for this?
I don't read the New York Times much any more (i'd say I don't read them at all unless someone else links to them, but I do occasionally read them via AvantGo on my handheld, without anyone linking to them). And I did come acrossthis article (login required, bugmenot has it) becauseJim Miller linked to it. But it is an interesting article nonetheless.
It tells of a small town in Alaska that currently gets their power from a diesel-fired plant, having to barge in the fuel to run it every year....
I haven't blogged for almost a month, and there's no good reason for it (other than me spending time on other things). There's been plenty of events that I would and should blog, from a close friend of mine having a baby, to the Iraqi elections. I just have been feeling a little ragged this month, and haven't carved out time to blog. I will try and get some more blogging done this month.
One thing that I think would get me to post some more is if I could log in and post from my pocket PC (see...
Via the peripatetic Instapundit comes this explanation of why SDB no longer blogs on politics. I probably wouldn't have gotten into blogging if it weren't for him (and for our host linking to one of his essays in the monthly newsletter).
He had a profound impact on me, and I wish him the best.
I forget where I saw this, but it's a definite stress-reliever
I think I saw some of these things...
More than meets the eye - indeed
