  1. Autocorrupt: Making the world a more interesting place since the nineties.
  2. If the return of last names dream ever comes true. I wonder if we'll be able to change the first name at the same time.
  3. There's a lot of neat stuff out there. Every year worry about that line which, if crossed, begins to frighten the little ones a bit too much. There were Halloweens past where I sometimes felt a little disappointed when my kids were too scared to approach a particular house. But I did my best to avoid feelings of reproach. Everybody has their own way of celebrating the holiday, and I still enjoy it.
  4. I have a mesh house by a well known builder. All of its parts, doors and windows are a single linked object. The doors use the method of llTargetOmega() to make them appear to smoothly rotate, then setting the open or closed rotation after an appropriate delay. Because a door mesh was only actually rotated to the open position when that process completed, I was unable to walk through that doorway until it had. I wanted better realism. While the house is modifiable, the scripts in the doors (and windows) are not. I replaced them with a version using the aforementioned method, adding to the beginning and end of the door state change processes, respectively, llSetLinkPrimitiveParamsFast(LINK_THIS, [PRIM_PHYSICS_SHAPE_TYPE, PRIM_PHYSICS_SHAPE_NONE]) and llSetLinkPrimitiveParamsFast(LINK_THIS, [PRIM_PHYSICS_SHAPE_TYPE, PRIM_PHYSICS_SHAPE_PRIM]). This allows a much more realistic simulation, letting me gracefully make a grand entrance into my writing room, where my typewriter, sitting on a desk, balefully inquires of me "And where have you been?"
  5. I’m a jurist for a monthly photo competition. I like how it’s run. The owner/organizer sends me a notecard once a month listing participants and things like theme, guidelines and rules for that month. I only know the organizer. I don’t know any of the entrants, any of the other jurists, and the entrants don’t know who any of the jurists are. Sometimes the number of entrants is high enough to make judging difficult.
  6. (… she said with an exclamation point) /me tickles you.
  7. I'm writing a story. I've gotten to around 19000 words. It seems I have a complicative habit of writing hooks into my story that can force me to get ever more creative the more deeply into it I get. I've decided to call it ambition. We'll see if it's a good thing. Another of my habits has been repeating, under my breath, something I'd just said. This happened most often when I'd talk to myself, which is still quite often. I've never really known why I did it. Perhaps I'd been somehow mentally editing myself for future conversations. I wonder if it helped. I don't notice it much anymore, either because I stopped doing it, or it's become so ingrained it's like breathing. In live, face to face conversations, I can probably seem occasionally impatient. When I'm talking with someone who has a lot of 'um' and 'ahh' in their speech, or simply pauses, searching for a word or considering sentence composition, I will sometimes feel impatient, especially if it's a conversation in which I am very interested. There is the urge to helpfully supply suggest a word; to which I frequently succumb. I want to be helpful, but I know I'm walking a fine line between that and just being annoying, or insulting, and I can feel a part of my mind playing self-moderator when I do this.
