ISP FTW! My Interwebs purveyor has decided to increase the bandwidth limits on most of their ADSL2+ plans, meaning that I suddenly have an extra 10GB of quota and... 5 days to use it in.

So tell me, dear flist: in what universe is it fair for season 2 of Dead Like Me to be downloading faster than season 1? WHY DOES BITTORRENT HATE ME SO?


Spicks and Specks was, er, fun. And 5% The Princess Bride, which isn't too far from normal - especially when 'normal' includes things like Adam Hills impersonating Adam Ant and the Adam Hillsong.

For all the linkspam, though, the real reason I'm posting about Spicks and Specks is that Jason Byrne mentioned Lego - which, as you might expect, immediately made me think of this. And because I've now got the whole 'hot Lego' thing stuck in my head, you might as well too.

Links are safe for work, unless you're a professional Lego thief.


Ah, April. The first used to be so much more fun, but that one was mostly people all over the Internets trying to rickroll one another. This makes it essentially indistinguishable from the thirty-first of March, and the second of April, and the first of May, and the twenty-ninth of February, and...

Still, if the Internets suddenly go quiet on the eighth, we'll know why. Helpfully, you can usually identify the misleading links to Samara's video: they're often linked to as Never Gonna Give You Up.

o/ Never gonna give you up
Never gonna let you out
Unless you show all your friends and curse them too
Prob'ly gonna make you cry
Got a week to say goodbye
Gonna climb out of your TV just to kill you

Um... note that I don't actually suggest Samararolling people. I especially don't suggest Samararolling people and then ringing them up imediately after. Wherever you got that idea from, it was most certainly not me.

Links are safe for work unless you're part of the supporting cast in a Western remake of a Japanese movie based on a Japanese novel not Rick Astley, so what more could you possibly want? A charming little clip of Beaker, perhaps?


[ profile] laurenmitchell did this, so I'm going to turn it into a poll meme. Or a meme poll. A meme with a poll, a poll that's a meme, you get the point. So:

[Poll #1164584]

The links in the poll are all safe for work, and come from this Wikipedia article. It lists the Rilmani as true neutral exemplars, and links to a Rilmani article that doesn't even exist. This amuses me far too much - as does the factual accuracy of the Yugoloth article being disputed.

And that, good people of the Interwebs, is about all there is for now. Go forth and... um... do whatever it is you people do.

There are many reasons for this.

-Exposition uses up far more bandwidth. The space toilet alone is a gig, easy.

-More gravelings in S1= more bandwidth and greater trouble

-Daisy is thinner than Betty was. I do not refer merely to body weight.

-The interweb gods are used to Crystal staring at them by the time S2 rolls around.

I'm sure there are more, but hell, I never downloaded the thing when it was on.

When it was on, my Internet was a series of vastly smaller tubes - so we can see how the problem came to be. And yet, I still won't see Inigo Montoya as a reaper for another... 25 hours. Grr.

*tweaks episode priorities to make the early episodes arrive faster*

Your poll is missing an option.

I make a clear distinction between Cosmic Neutral (dedicated to balance, druids and all) and Neutral Selfish (aka fence-sitting). Even the PHB makes the distinction (though calls them both the same)

Maybe so, but it's as complete as it probably needs to be - unless you were planning to vote for either of them, I suppose.

It may also be that I learned D&D back in the days of 2nd, when unaligned-neutral wasn't a player-character alignment, insert generic WotC complaint here.

That. Is. Terrifying.

Which is precisely why I don't recommend it.

Examples of Lawful Neutral characters include a soldier who always follows orders, a judge or enforcer that adheres mercilessly to the word of the law, a disciplined monk, and the Dungeon Master of a D&D game.

Oh, that is harsh. *snickers*

Not quite; harsh, I think, would be calling the DM lawful evil.

Nah - lawful evil is too stereotyped to really cut.

(Of course, I'm fully of the opinion that it'll be soon cut for being clever nonencyclopedic.)
