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

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 (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?)
