You know what's neat to look at? The sparks that fly out of the back of your computer power supply.

edit: You know what's neater? Having a new power supply that works and was cheap--and knowing for sure none of your other computer shit was damaged during the supernova!
"You haven't told me what I'm looking for."
"Anything that might be of interest to Slitscan. Which is to say, anything that might be of interest to Slitscan's audience. Which is best visualized as a vicious, lazy, profoundly ignorant, perpetually hungry organism craving the warm god-flesh of the anointed. Personally I like to imagine something the size of a baby hippo, the color of a week-old boiled potato, that lives by itself, in the dark, in a double-wide on the outskirts of Topeka. It's covered with eyes and it sweats constantly. The sweat runs into those eyes and makes them sting. It has no mouth, Laney, no genitals, and can only express its mute extremes of murderous rage and infantile desire by changing the channels on a universal remote. Or by voting in presidential elections."

Isao, you back yet?

Sorry for the delay. I got back late (Tuesday), spent Wednesday catching up at work and then got caught in the Hanna scare over the last two days.

I'll be back on my normal schedule as of today less'n Ike makes a break for the Carolinas.

Well, I'm going to be in Australia soon. Should have intermittent access for the next few days, but otherwise, unknown. So, NPC duties for my characters in the interim.

I've been caught up in some pretty intense weather. Electricity has been off since Tuesday, and this is first chance I've had to access the internet since then. I don't really know when power will be back, but that's what's going on. In the meantime, Idran can control Rosalyn if he wants.

Working 10-hour shifts for the next few days, standing for just about the whole time, and judging by yesterday I'm not going to be in any condition to do anything when I get home. So, I probably won't be posting before Tuesday.

Just giving notice that I'm in Ohio for the next two weeks, so my GMing will probably be somewhat slow. Posting as a player shouldn't be affected any, though.

I'll be heading out tomorrow (the 26th) and getting back sometime on the 1st of August. Zant shouldn't be hard to NPC. DH group, we'll kick off again when I return.

We're getting rid of our land line apparently, so I suppose it looks like I'll be gone until I get my internet back. At least somebody happened to mention this while I was around before it actually went off. Though they had expected it to be off before then...

To DH people:

I told Alex that I'd be back last Thursday at best. Turns out the project's even worse than I thought.

Friday, however, I will return.

A little bit belated, but I'm running a full system sweep of my computer, installing Windows 7.0 and moving stuff around. And sleeping.

So I'm going to be a bit preoccupied for a while, and this does require much of my attention, sorry.

Bad notice:

Finals coming up, and my home computer's internet connection is currently AWOL. This is bad news for Supervillainy at the moment.

Hopefully this will be resolved quickly. (Well, the finals are OK, it's the internet that's a bigger deal.)

Edit: Boy I feel stupid. It was fixed much more quickly than I anticipated.

Unfortunately it seems that not everyone's got the memo that I'm heading for Boston and PAX for the weekend.

Well, I am, and I won't be back until Monday. Late on Monday. :|

Sorry.

I'll take control of Vipsanius and he'll forget how to use simple tools like stairs and doorknobs and unless you can come up with a convincing way for him to relearn these secrets it's curtains for him!

Edit: He also forgot curtains.

Tomorrow I'm going to get laser eye-surgery... or is it laser-eye surgery?

Anyway, according to reliable sources, looking at a computer monitor will be painful and exhausting. I will do my best to keep up to date with posts, but there is a very likely chance I will be squirming around in my bed, groaning.

Going to be more or less gone Wednesday the 11th through Tuesday the 17th. I may have internet intermittently, but I can't promise anything. I'll be visiting relatives in various parts of Oregon.

Also, sorry I've been kind of MIA since I got back from Otakon. Work has been calling me in every day and I've been wiped from trying to do what they want done this time of the year, moving furniture and rearranging rooms and such.

Sorry guys I'll be gone for a bit.

Personal issues.
"That's not interactive, there's no back-and-forth with the other player and how much fun is it to watch someone incredibly good at moving their eyes? And then whichever Seeker gets lucky swoops in and grabs the Snitch and makes everyone else's work moot. It's like someone took a real game and grafted on this pointless extra position just so that you could be the Most Important Player without needing to really get involved or learn the rest of it. Who was the first Seeker, the King's idiot son who wanted to play Quidditch but couldn't understand the rules?" Actually, now that Harry thought about it, that seemed like a surprisingly good hypothesis. Put him on a broomstick and tell him to catch the shiny thing...

Hey folks. I caught the flu recently and wasn't well enough to use the computer. I've only just gotten kind of better and realised it's been days since I was online. I'm back now though! So I guess this isn't an Absence Announcement so much as a return announcement. :nyoron:

The computer is going on vacation with my family, though I am staying at home for work related reasons. The computer is going with the family so my mother can take her monday online class while she's out. I won't actually be without a computer so much as I won't have as much access as normal, so I won't post as often most likely. I will try to post to everything at least once tonight though. Thanks for understanding folks!
