Books

Tuesday

As certain as I am that I should be trying to socialize, meet new people, usw. I suspect after this evening (in particular) that these are not necessarily the right people (certainly not for me right now). I'll go back in a month or so and see how it goes.

Or maybe they should've used the ducttape, instead of just presenting it as a threat. After all:

  1. I need to learn to shut up.

  2. I need to learn to be quiet and listen.

  3. I am not (as yet) capable of doing this (shutting me the fsck up) myself.


http://adric.net, and thereby email, are now working again. Time to unsubscribe, resubscribe, etc. Comment emails have been trickling in backwards all afternoon. (Thanks techaholic).

And once more I found myself having to defend Abuse policies and the Team itself, in meatspace. I wish I could help, and I know that arguing isn't it. Refer to the part above where I need to shut up.

And (Parallelism or poor writing? you decide) And I'm at home, fully awake, at 0100. I could go chase MUCK links, or login and try some softcode. I'd need to pick a manual for that first..

I thought about logging into Furry, and read up on it a bit. I need to stay clear of there until I have a character (not an acct, mind you. The docs say how to get an account/login. They have nothing to say about what sort of whatsit to be on there, etc) Or maybe a linked path will reveal itself after I post this, as I catch up on email and LJ, and such.

Indeed, even as I shuffled windows around, it was revealed that I have Chapter 18 of BrokenSaints queued up. (Is there not already a comm for it?)
That and the instructions here for converting a remote machine to Debian are quite interesting, if not really shocking. The closest trick to evil hackery is rpm -i basedebs.rpm. And then you run debootstrap. Hardly shocking, but cool.
