I was up at 5:30 this morning writing down a dream that I had so that I can turn it into a story.

I blame this on murnkay. I'm sure I caught the writing disease from him, and not any of the many other authors I know.

I haven't forgotten my promise to post pictures. I either need to get the ones Joel took or I need to grab the ones I took using Amy's camera and upload them, and I haven't done either yet.

Interim update: three windows shattered, five more with frames broken so they'll have to be replaced even though the glass survived, lots of windowscreens trashed, a window air conditioner trashed, skylights trashed, roof will have to be replaced. We have a $4000 hail deductible on the house. We'll have to figure out whether we want to try to pay the incremental cost of any upgrades we could do as long as we have to replace a bunch of stuff.

The Taurus is totaled, though we'll be buying it back since it's just cosmetic damage. We'll be getting around $4000 for it net, so that pretty much covers our deductible on the house. The Honda took approximately $7500 in damage. The trailer hasn't been evaluated yet but I suspect it's totaled as well.

So we had a close encounter with a tornado a couple of hours ago. Shattered windows but no injuries other than the hailstone that hit Bill in the ear and the little glass shard I stuck myself with cleaning up a bit.

Still no power, posting from my phone. Should have some impressive photos in the morning...

You know, I usually like kynn, but I do acknowledge there are occasionally times where she gets pretty damn strident.

The irony of the tone argument being used against her (particularly nastily) on a time when she was actually being pretty damn reasonable is not lost on me.

(I want a mood icon that captures "frustrated and angry and disappointed and sadly unsurprised and...")

So for a game I'm playing, I need a phrase in Japanese (or, frankly, in bad wannabe Japanese). I'm wanting an overly-polite "Excuse me, Secretkeeper, please hear our prayers," sort of statement. The obvious bits are something like "Gomen nasai Secretkeeper-sama, ?? ?? kudasai," but I'm not sure what the ?? ?? should be.

This is an spell invocation for a cleric of Hello Kitty, so weeabooness is totally in-character, if that matters any.

ETA: Looks like I had anonymous and OpenID comments turned off. Whups. I think it's fixed now.

ETA2: Here's what I have so far, in romaji: Gomennasai Secretkeeper-sama watashitachi no inori o kikite kudasai

Oh dear.

I found a tutorial on how to get a minimal C++-based kernel up and running on x86.

Last night I installed Bochs and a GCC cross-compiler and got my minimal C++ kernel to boot.

I've wanted to write a hybrid C++/Python OS for a while, and played around with OSKit at one point, but never went anywhere.

Now I have to get enough minimally up and running that I can use things like STL. And, more importantly, a Python interpreter and Boost.

Oh, dear.

Why do I read transfeminist writings? It just ends up pissing me off. Especially when it's good.

Your result for The Kink Spectrum Analysis Test...

Ultraviolet (350 nm)

Holy spectrum! You have a lot of different kinks, and you definitely like to play on both sides of the fence. This versatility may make it hard to find a partner that doesn't bore you, however. For maximum pleasure, look for a partner who is Ultraviolet as well, or maybe Blue. Greens and Reds are probably too vanilla for you.

Detailed results cut to spare those who really don't want to know...Collapse )

ETA: I know, I know, this is a huge surprise to everyone who knows me. *grin*

Just testing the crossposter. Nothing to see here, these are not the posts you're looking for, move along.

So I am really, really trying to keep from getting my hopes up.

And I am failing utterly.
