Please repost this? I have never begged for one of my posts to be boosted. I am just so worried for my friends and want you to know.

According to this article, dated March 15, 2012:
http://www.digitaltrends.com/webnews/major-isps-turn-into-copyright-police-by-july-says-riaa/

"File-sharers, beware: By July 12, major US Internet service providers (ISPs) will voluntarily begin serving as copyright police for the entertainment industry, according to Cary Sherman, chief executive of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The so-called “six-strikes” plan is said to be one of the most effective anti-piracy efforts ever established in the US."

The article goes on to give details. After six notices, internet providers will decide to throttle a person's internet speed, or cut it off altogether. I don't know if they will crack down on torrents only, or if it is up to the internet provider. I get the sense it is up to the internet provider. So some people could get away with downloading non torrents, while others might get their internet service cut off. I urge you to click it and read, as we all know people who download.

No more downloading eps of your favorite shows for vidding, gifs, or fanfiction art. No more downloading screencaps possibly. I'm so sorry my friends. I don't even know if BT Guard will work to protect you, but I would google it if I were you. It is a professional service that supposedly can protect you from the invasive eyes of your internet provider.

Just, my friends, please make each other aware. Please be aware of the date JULY 12TH. Mark your calendar and double check with your internet provider by then. If you start receiving notices of downloaded activity, this is why. And your internet service could be throttled or cut off.

Fox news confirms this:

By which I mean, Darrin and I are looking at a house on Saturday morning and Dad sounded like he was having a ;_; moment on the other end of the phone when I mentioned that as part of my weekend schedule. XD He is a dork.

Got my release notes done today, except for whatever comes in tomorrow, which is awesome. What is not awesome is that I may have to get them out on Monday, which is a public holiday... but hey, it's not like I haven't been working my last three weekends!

Weekend plan is to go see this house bright and early in the morning, hunt for clothing for my cousin's wedding for Darrin (and possibly new boots for me), then head to Dad's place for dinner on Saturday night, since I haven't seen him in approximately eighteen billion years. The rest of the long weekend is entirely up to the gods, and my product manager, although I'll probably spend some time getting some more of the repos back where they belong.

Booked in for an appointment with a cognitive therapist in a week or so to help me get sort the depression/stress (so naturally I've been doing pretty well for a few days). I've been doing a lot better since my work life stopped looking like such a shitfight. Haven't really spoken to the boss about this that much, so I should probably do that when I get back from my holidays and am feeling in a better frame of mind. At present all he really knows is that sometimes I will need to work from home purely to let myself overcome anxiety attacks. (Aaand there I go again. Yay, problems I can't solve!) Mum suggests I start from the very beginning with the cognitive therapist and work out all the kinks in my entire life. My answer to that is simultaneously, that seems a little childish, and, you honestly think I can remember? o_o But whatever. We'll see how that goes.

I'm actually kind of enthusiastic to start planning the next product to come out, but I think if I start doing that at home someone will actually cut off my hands to stop me working. XD Off to play video games! Or something! My right wrist hurts already so that might not be the best plan ever.

(Also: boyfriend possibly interested in borrowing saucy novels = best idea or worst idea? XD I really cannot tell. ♥)

..........and then I started looking for Watchmen slash and found the following in a subject line and had to share how hard it BROKE MY BRAIN.

Crossover slash: Adrian Veidt/Tony Stark/Bruce Wayne.

ME: What
ME: WHAT
ME: how would you even
ME: kdjsfksdkfasd
ME: ......................
ME: This I gotta see.

(And then regretted it immediately because the paragraphs, they are too long for comic book fic! Don't ask me how this works.)

FUCK YEAH!

Have a great Christmas season and New Year!

Your aaNet team





OH, AANET. I LOVE YOU, TOO.

(Home from work. Sleep nao.)

[EDIT] Oh. And I went to organise my new phone today. Didn't get through all the paperwork, told the guy to call me at work if there any details to clear up.

Josh told me he called and asked for my number. (They drink together.)

*facemash* Just because I make polite with you does not mean I want to go out with you.

Although I will give him points for not just SMSing me out of the blue. Since, you know, HE HAD MY NUMBER ON THE COMPUTER IN FRONT OF HIM, being's I want to keep the same one. XD

(Oh, that was an amusing conversation.
JOSH: He asked for your number. *leer*
ME: But he has my numbe-- oh. D:)

HEEEEE

LOOK AT MY BABY HE IS SO BEAUTIFUL EEEEE. And Fujikujaku is all growed up now, too, as is Feucoronne, whose egg (if there is a god) should yield another male two-headed dragon or I will have to come up with uhhh magical feminine names for the thing I was planning to call some strange combination like Harrowgate Foxe. I may just call it Tabby Joline or something equally dashing. XD; UHHH.

THIS AFTERNOON I WROTE A THOUSAND WORDS OF STUFF AND I AM FEELING SO. MUCH. BETTER. OH, WORDS. OH, HOW I LOVE YOU, WORDS.

Stared a little bit at my NaNo beforehand before deciding that Rook and Thom were probably a better idea, all things being equal, because it is one thing to write gay porn when your father is on the other side of the room and quite another to write wild sexings of the inter-species variety, even if the species is technically lumped under 'FAE'.

Also, work tomorrow. :( Sob. (But then Twilight. LOLOLOLOL, MAYBE I SHOULD BRING A BOOK.)

[insanejournal.com profile] cheloya: ......oh, bloody hell.
[insanejournal.com profile] cheloya: Why did the genius tutor have to use my fucking essay topic as an EXAMPLE.
[insanejournal.com profile] kuchibue: ew
[insanejournal.com profile] cheloya: Agreed.
[insanejournal.com profile] cheloya: *plays with her thesis a little*
[insanejournal.com profile] cheloya: .....why does that sound like I'm masturbating?

Sleepy Rave is sleepy and could happily have slept until, oh, four in the afternoon, but AOL Live is helping with that because they have a complete Metallica archive on for the release of the new album.

In the interests of retaining sanity while writing this essay today, I think I'm going to take breaks to write for Porn Battle: Round Five.

[insanejournal.com profile] ignite, [insanejournal.com profile] howl_for_words, I'm going to assume the larger of the Squeefund transfers won't actually come out of my account until Monday, so I'll transfer again at that point.

In other news, this is the more horrifying meme EVER. D: There are certain things you never want to think about, and this is one of them.

I could survive for 60 seconds chained to a bunk bed with a velociraptor

This essay is not necessarily meant to be argumentative, buuuuuuuut the Chad Parkhill school of awesomeness in academic writing dictates that I must have an argument, not just an analysis of the books, so I'm considering looking at them both as examples of the author pushing the SNAG-ish middle ground of masculinity rather than either epic fail or epic win. That's exactly how I'm going to word it, too. Might write the whole thing as analytical and go from there re. reworking a proper argumentative thesis, just so I can narrow my focus as I go.

Oh, look, two more days until the Sirianni domain expires! XD XD XD Life is going to be HILARIOUS on Monday when that thing disappears.

[EDIT] Apparently it is International Talk-Like-A-Pirate Day. In the spirit of this, I believe I will also write an alternate version of my essay (on failed hegemonic heterosexual masculinity, lol) in pirate. XD

Also, Bleach 326 spoilers are kind of making Yumichika seem... really blindly concerned about Ikkaku's wellbeing. Which is kind of ridiculously cute.

Not all on the agenda for today, obviously, but necessary so that my brain comprehends just how much I have on my plate and therefore that procrastinating further is a bad idea. This would be a lot easier if my hands were not both dying/dead and my ovaries were not exerting their powers of pain over the rest of my abdomen.

On the bright side, had lunch with Rage and scared other food court patrons by flailing about Alec/Seregil. (Do not tell me it's not hilarious to chat about gay sex next to businesspeople. It will never stop being hilarious.)

[EDIT] The eternal question: How many Yuffie figures do you need?
And the answer: As many as they give you, baby.

I am a whore. I am a shameless, shameless whore and I should never be responsible for my own money, ever. (No, I haven't bought it. Yet. She's so fucking THIN, look at her! MY POOR LITTLE GIRL OFF STARVING IN THE WILDERNESS. T_T Yuffie is nobody's poor little girl. It's nice to know she's still in my head enough to pop me one for even thinking it. XD)
