Drones are being experimented-with as a police tool.

I popped in as I heard the uproar from way over here. People say it's fuzzy and no improvement. I have to agree. It's less... in keeping and more intrusive, but only by a handful of degrees.

Update: TS fixed it.

Wow, Safeway delivered my things. And didn't get lost. I had ordered things I can't buy as:
  1. They are too heavy
  2. They are breakable
  3. GrossOut doesn't have them
  4. I can't make it down that aisle

I was heavy into the kale, okra, lima beans, pickles. I mostly bought non-fridge stuff as I just binned everything in there, which was sad. I bought yoghurt, grapefruit juice, and eggs. I bought coffee and milk. For some unknown reason they delivered two boxes of Eggos, which I hadn't ordered.

Raglan's influence travels far.

A woman plans to marry a partially
demolished building in Seattle on Sunday.

"Yes, I'm in love with a 107 year old building!," writes Aivaz on the wedding invite page on Facebook.

Aivaz writes that her relationship with the building began when she and a group of around 200 occupied the warehouse claiming it as a community space.

"The warehouse is slated to be demolished in a week to make way for luxury apartments whose destiny is to disintegrate our unique creative culture and render our neighborhood even more unaffordable. Why couldn't we have had a community artspace and museum there instead?" writes Aivaz.

Currently my house would pass muster if you had an old pair of spectacles on and a diminished sense of smell! Wewt! Moving on up!

Had no intarwebz for 10 hours or so,; it was either magically restored or restored by one of the 45452343524 modem/router resets I did. I usually just let it come back in its own time (it's mostly power-related) but I know Steven Down Below likes me to thrash it when it misbehaves so I am a harsher miastress.

Lucy wrote a poem in her sleep:

let your smile be your umbrella - my birthday version!

let your smile be your umbrella
let your grimace be your shoe
let your smirk be your sombrero
and you'll find a love that's true

let your frown be your long underwear
and your sneer your pocketbook
let your grin be your ballet shoe ribbon
then you'll know you're off the hook!

'Really? How interesting!'

Ages ago when I last saw the neuro to try my best to get the CCSVI treatment, I mentioned to her that often at about oh, say 2 or 3am I can wiggle my righthand fingers, which Frank says has to do with the meridian active at that time of day. She said, 'Really? How interesting!' or something. I could tell she believed me but had never heard such a thing before.

Last night at a much earlier hour - possibly before midnight - I suddenly had much greater use of my right hand and my right leg, which hasn't often been part of the 3am upsurge. It's always just enough to keep me going though this life seems pretty stupid to me.

I get much, much worse if I'm cold or too warm.

I was thinking about reincarnation, which has always seemed a fanciful conceit to me, and that it definitely would need two parts. An early part would have the move-from-incarnation-to-different-incarnation aspect, but later rebirth would be in the same form to give you leave to attempt other paths within the same lifetime. Maybe it's all tied to the multiverse theory. Anyway, I truthfully don't feel the individual spirit survives although it would seem to be a nice idea from this viewpoint of little understanding; I think there's an ecstatic joining as energy separated unnaturally by a physical body is once again able to meld with the universal (or multiversal). This body has no more significance tha an old gym slip, and is as thankfully cast off.

Me: I bet you've seen a lot of strange purchases as everyone gets impulse buys* and comfort food.
Checker: Exactly.
Me: Does the store have a generator?
Checker: No. We lost power Saturday at [time] and it was out until [time]. Then it went out at around 10 last night and didn't come on until after 3 this morning!

That last outage is the same as my last outage, meaning the problem must've been upstream. By itself it wasn't a huge thing but for me, topping a five powerless day ordeal it was a nasty thing.

* Tim's Cascade Potato Chips - not sure why I bought them. It was like they were a cruise ship captain and my cart was a lifeboat: they just fell in.

I bought spinach, romaine, steak (I'm starved for red meat), Triscuits, milk, sliced toast bread of unremarkable variety, plain German biscuits, yoghurt, gorgonzola, brie... Tim's Cascade Potato Chips...

Power has just come back on...


Tuesday at 10:48
I was sorting laundry as this is the first time I've felt I might actually be strong enough to go up and down the stairs multiple times when the power went out again. *cries* I finished sorting, then lit a gas burner and moved the candles closer. I put on a coat.

Come back soon! I was not even used to having power, completely, and God knows have not yet managed to fix the damage that was done last time.

Me 'n' Skyrim

So I was plopped down on a tumbril with some varied bound prisoners, and then we stopped in a village and the guards were just about to chop off my head when a big dragon flew down and made everyone upset. I ran off, but with one hand I had to move forward, then move the mouse to aim, then run into a wall, then aim, then... and so on ad infinitum. I was wandering around looking at things and admiring the big dragon as it fought the rubbery-looking soldiers but a big-mouth kept bellowing at me and telling me to leave. 'Oh, shut up, I thought. YOU'D BETTER GET OUT WHILE YOU CAN! 'Oh, for crying out loud.'

I went to a tower and got kitted up with some leathery duds and a sword in each hand as well as a few other things (maybe that was further along, though). A nervous fellow beckoned me over and over ('Just a MINUTE. Sheesh.') so I set off with him in my signature personal running style of *go forward* then hit the wall *track sideways* go forward *hit the wall* and so forth. Slow. We killed some dudes, ran through a dundgeon-y place where I picked up some things, then fought some giant spiders and ran past a big... oh, perhaps it was a bear, I misremember. We come out on the road and he says we'd better split up (Fine, Rubberman.) I end up running after him for a while then... let's see... I found a tavern and paid for a room but couldn't find it and logged off, sweat-drenched and exhausted (not really). Then I didn't play for a few weeks so next time I had forgotten how to sheath my weapons, which was a bit embarrassing.

So I left the tavern and ran around killing wolves and swimming and trying to catch salmon and kill elk. Next place I remember was a hosteler's, and at first a feeble-minded lad let me steal everything then said 300 times, 'You'd better GO,' until a soldier came in and killed me. Second time it was a cranky crone in charge, and she had an itchy trigger-finger. The third time it was the hosteler, and he had a ridiculously inflated idea of the worth of his horses. I couldn't stop acting hostile and hit a helpful STEAL THIS action tag by accident, whereupon he whipped out a big axe and killed me AGAIN. Next time I just stole his horse :-D and zigzagged off, dodging wolves. I fetched up at a labyrinthine ruin and cantered around a circular thing and thought, 'I'll just whip out that far gateway...' but we went directly off a cliff and felllllllllll to the bottom and had our brains dashed out. Oh, too bad!

The next time I hied off deliberately in another direction. I saw crabs, elk, a fox, hare, and so on. I ran into some grotty men who shot arrows at me. I ended up running up a long flight of steps and... *tries to remember* uh, fell off after clambering around on some big stones and had my brains dashed out (I'd kilt the horse prior to the staircase).

Next time I rode off on the horse in another 'nother direction, and saw a mastodon. And wolves, elk, blah-blah-blah. I chased around somebody-or-other's homestead, then saw a dead or injured dude at a crossroads where meanies attacked me, wolves, elk, blah-blah-blah.

That's about it, so far. *muscle-beach animation*


It's obvious that the desired female physique of modern times is influenced to a very great degree by the fact that human beings, now, experience things visually. In former times people lived much of their lives - especially their connubially-focused hours - in the dim half-light or dark. Given that fact, their experiences were tactile and a rail-thin body with its boniness contained an unwelcome reminder of illness, poverty, and death. Far more desireable was a softness and fullnesss.


So... the Republican runners are despicable. Newt Gingrich is a vile, vile excuse for a human being, Romney is part of some weird non-Christian religious cult, Ron Paul is a nutcase, Santorum is another vile excuse, etc., etc.

An outburst from the sun late Sunday night is bathing Earth in the most powerful solar-radiation storm in six years.

The radiation storm is the first act of an event that will crescendo Tuesday, when the brunt of the outburst – called a coronal-mass ejection – arrives at Earth. It could trigger a disturbance of Earth's magnetic field, leading to voltage swings in long-distance power transmission lines as well as the appearance of the northern lights as far south as New York.

The current radiation storm – rated an S3, or strong, on a scale of 1 to 5 – could damage satellite hardware and present an increased risk of radiation exposure to passengers flying at high altitudes across polar routes, say space-weather specialists. These risks, however, are expected to be manageable.


E Emailing Yesterday








My power just came on! I'm glad yours is on - I was very worried about you. It was so cold! My power was out for days and days. The house isn't warm yet.


My phone is not working. Are you warm? Are you ok?




Note to Enjah:

Hey, the awesome freeze-dried foods you sent saved me! I had potato leek soup, Allegheny noodles, and camp omelet (which should be called camp scramble as on a scale of omeletism 1-over 9000 it ranks ZERO). Also the led lights you sent were headlights. Thank you.

Is Idey ok? Bammy has had storms...


The town clock in the market square
Stands waiting for the hour
When its hands they both turn backwards
And on meeting will devour
Both themselves and also any fool
Who dares to tell the time
And the sun and moon will shatter
And the signposts cease to sign

Oh yes.

A bad time to have no heat.

Labels: ,


Well, that was an ordeal.

I lost power at about 3am last Thursday after the mighty snow storm and it just came on - meaning no heat, water, light, etc., etc. I am sadly diminished and may never fully recover. Maybe I will, though - now that things are on the path to normalcy. It has been cold - see-your-breath cold at first - 24 hours a day for days.

I thought it went out Wednesday but now I'm not sure so will say Thursday. What's one day to an eternity, anyway.

I need to clarify: what follows is two old posts from the iPod which, of course, I could write but not post at the time. They are not new, I have power now. Sorry for the confusion.

From the stupid iPod which has no staying power:
Day two with no power, heat, light, or water. I can see my breath! This is turning into an ordeal, but heigh ho, it's an adventure!

Stupid iPod will run out of juice long before it would be justified. I can see the screen in the dark which makes it useful since it's more or less dark all day. It's 8:49 am and dark ATM :p

*checks the time*
10:07 am
Come back, Little Trizzities!
The power went out at about 3am yesterday; I spent most of the day in bed but that's less of an option today as it makes my back hurt and generally does me no good whatsoever. It's well above freezing now, however I'm in an ice cave, more or less, with snow and ice all around. All day and night huge slabs of snowy ice were catapulting themselves of the roof and down three storeys to the ground, hitting the railing the way. The sound was tremendous.
OK it's 10:24. This is officially old.
I saw weak amber flashes last night (power crews at work) which made me think there'd be power today :(
I got this iPod case for its lanyard, but another style is needed as it's too thick and also makes taking pictures near impossible for me (though as I had thought the flap makes a stand useful for video, a bit). It would work better for me the other way around. Ah, well.
Typing isn't too awful on it for me, which is a miracle.
10:39 :((

I'm opposed to 99% of medication use as A) in my experience the downside is greater than the upside, B) big pharma is evil and I will not support it. I was shocked a bit last night when listening to Global chat in Glitch as many players listed their medications (antidepressants for the most part). There is a commercial out now for something or other that sounds like a Saturday Night Live skit - Take this! Side effects include [a list of horrifying maladies]. Drug companies have trained people, it seems, to accept those lists without thinking. They aren't interested in alleviating suffering, just selling products. Drugs are engineered to pass the effectiveness tests whether or not that test result is in a human's best interest i.e. osteoporosis drugs that only harden the bone's outer layer which create an unnatural rigidity in what should be a living and flexible body part.

MS damage washed away by stream of young blood

A FOUNTAIN of youthful cells reverses the damage found in diseases like multiple sclerosis, a study in mice reveals.

Nerve cells lose their electrically insulating myelin sheath as MS develops. New myelin-generating cells can be produced from stem cells, but the process loses efficiency with age.

Julia Ruckh at the University of Cambridge, and colleagues, have found a way to reverse the age-related efficiency loss. They linked the bloodstreams of young mice to old mice with myelin damage. Exposure to youthful blood reactivated stem cells in the old mice, boosting myelin generation.

White blood cells called macrophages from the young mice gathered at the sites of myelin damage. Macrophages engulf and destroy pathogens and debris, including destroyed myelin (Cell Stem Cell, DOI: 10.1016/j.stem.2011.11.019)

"We know this debris inhibits regeneration, so clearing it up is important," says team member Amy Wagers of Harvard University.

Neil Scolding at the University of Bristol, UK, who was not involved in the new work, says reactivating ageing stem cells may be a more realistic approach for treating MS than transplanting stem cells from a donor.

Aditi seems kind of screwed up atm.


Glitch housing update player questions plus stoot answers:

1. Once the new housing is introduced, what steps will current users need to take to acquire a house and what steps will new users need to take to acquire a house?

2. Will a new house consist of a template that can be extended and added to? If so, will there be one template that everyone starts with, or will there be different starting templates to choose from?

3. Will houses have an exterior that is visible from public space such that any player could pass by, see the house, drop something in front of it, or knock on the door if they wish? If so, will there be ways to customize this exterior to make something that is visually unique?

4. Will there be spaces with clusters of houses similar to the current housing quarters? If so, will there be public access to these spaces such that any player can come into them and wander around?

5. Will the new houses have a permission system that is more flexible and layered than the current permission system which allows anyone who has access to a house to take almost everything that's not locked into a cabinet?

1. Existing users will go through a tutorial/explain-y transition process to move from their old to new houses the first time they log in after we make the switch. You will get some form or "credit" for the price of your old house, translated into the new system.

New users will get a starter house as part of the initial tutorial.

2. New houses will start with a basic template, common to everyone. But everyone can extend and upgrade it in their own way.

3. Yes. And Yes.

4. No.

5. No. That may happen in the future, house keys are not related to what we're working on now.

Miso George: you don't need to worry about moving your stuff — that will all be automatic.

Liza Throttlebottom: there will probably be some eventual limit. But, it will get geometrically more expensive to imagine more land so any hard limit will more theoretical than not.

Razzal: you will not able to able to play house-less (just like you are not currently able to play inventory-less or leg-less or energy-less now) but since the house is inside your own mind you'd have to twist yourself into an impossible-to-sustain conceptual pretzel to get to "landlocked peasants" who are "more materialist" because of being "permanently assigned" to "a chunk of real estate".

Saucelah: Group Halls will come after housing (and a few other things) and will make much more sense then.

Joe Blow: in general: to get more space/land, you'll be spending imagination; to get more stuff on the land, you'll be doing discrete project-like work, crafting or trading with other players. Hoarding stuff now will not help you very much (in the long run, having a billion cherries will only be valuable if there is demand among for a billion cherries among the other players).

Oh, I've thought about this a lot without much hope, but now Qarl has given permission for his alignment tool to be integrated into the official viewer. Please, LL, jump on this quickly.

Qarl continues to rock.


'Perhaps the biggest shift is that “imagination” is becoming a mechanic. Instead of earning experience points or currency for accomplishing tasks in Glitch, players will earn imagination, which can then be spent to upgrade a character’s skills, for example, or to purchase currency. Not only does imagination fit nicely with the overall theme of Glitch—the game is set in the minds of 11 giants—but it provides wonderful flexibility for gamers to play Glitch how they want.'



With Gratitude

I'd like to thank all the Glitchen of Ur for making my Level 60 party memorable! It was a frenetic two hours of concentrated awesomesauce, and I had a blast.

In particular I'd like to thank a few who worked behind the scenes.

Enjah, thank you, my pal, for all you do and are. You rock.

Umi, of Party of the Month Club, who took my nutty ideas in stride and crafted such a fabulous party that even she was taken by surprise - thank you! Umi was a hard-working, creative, and altogether fab party planner!

biba pants, who stepped in and stylishly juggled comestibles, thank you!

Finlay Linker of Finley's Catering Service - thank you for cooking up a storm and feeding the hungry party hurricane!

I'd like to thank bribling, whose great screenshots document the party. Thank you!

Finally, thank you Humbaba, for allowing me to borrow Ghara Gulley.

American Politics

“I appreciate all the hard work the Republican legislators are putting into the effort to make them look like extremists,” said Ray Buckley, spokesman for the Democrats. “Saves us the trouble.”

Why is the discussion always, 'Is it wrong to steal? How about if your children are starving and you steal food to give to them?' and never 'Is it wrong to accumulate masses of things you don't need? How about if someone else really is in need of those things?' I'm not making any kind of point (the two things are not opposites anyway) - I am just in a wondering frame of mind.

Netflix made a personal recommendation for me. They think I'd enjoy this film: 'Jon, who's just been diagnosed with AIDS, reluctantly opens his home to a similarly afflicted homicidal drifter named Luke.'and also one in which, 'Two young lesbian criminals kidnap a heavy-set girl in Buenos Aires.'

I'm not saying I couldn't like a film with a homicidal drifter, just that it's repellant rather than attractive, so the film would start out with a deficit.

Usually it will say something like, 'This recommendation is based on your enjoyment of Kagemusha, Annie Hall, and Good Hair' or something, but I'm not sure what the reasoning for these was.

My goal is to provide fun and prizes for all who grace the occasion with their presence. There will be emblems as door prizes, including a grand prize of 11 Cosma emblems, a massing of rainbows (my friend Enjah and I will set out a whole lot all at once for Max Chaos and Fun), a solemn Calling of the Manifold Rubes, a frenzied footrace, an Amorous Philtre-a-thon, cubie races, lots of purp, food, drink, and whatever else I'm forgetting.

Umi is my party maven, and she knows how to have fun, so join us and let's paint Ur red!

No gifts, just come to Ghara Gulley in Rasana and let the fun begin!

To enter the emblem prize drawings you MUST post in the Glitch forum thread!

Seeing as I don't know how many people will be in attendance, numbers will be assigned in the same order as the replies. If someone really wants to, they can swap numbers with another person if both parties agree. The cutoff time for entering will be at noon PST, two hours before the party starts. The numbers will be drawn by me using a random number generator (

I want to ask for thoughts about improving the world -- what do people need? How can things be organised?
