Please ignore that last post (deleted now). It was supposed to be posted to a comm, not my journals :S
paraka: Rodney with the caption "*headdesk* (SGA-M-*head desk*)
This morning I got up and dragged myself out of bed and off to work, only to get there and find the parking lot empty. After a moment of confusion I realized it was not, in fact, Tuesday but instead Stat Holiday Monday.

Wow, do I feel stupid.

I guess, instead, I will spend the day podficcing. I have to rerecord a section of [personal profile] orbedrowned before I can post the next part (but I have about 15 minutes edited) and I also got distracted by [personal profile] house_of_lantis' Undercover, which is now about half recorded, and another non-fandom related editing project.

Ok, this is probably a stupid question and I'm just blind but does anyone know how to allow anonymous commenting for communities? I just set up a new community (well two, one on LJ and one on DW) up and it automatically sets it to no anonymous comments and I can't figure out what I have to do to change that.

So you know how I made that post last night about having a write in today? Well this morning when I got up, I got my computer all ready for tonight (closed all internet windows but that of fic in Google Docs so there'd be no distractions) and then left for work without it!


And because I was planning on typing, I didn't even bring my notebook with me. God.

On a more serious note, I haven't talked about the situation in Iran yet on my journal. Mostly because I've spent the last little while living in a media bubble (there have been H1N1 deaths in Canada, what!?) just catching the news sound bites on the radio. I knew it was going on but didn't really have a lot of information until about 2 days ago when I went on an information frenzy. Thank you so much for those on my flist providing helpful links. And to help spread the word:

i realize now i do not fear death... i fear my daughter will not be free when i die

Help please from any of the vidders on my flist. What's that program where you can write a little script and have that edit your source material? I know it exists, I've had it on my computer before even. I remember that the tutorial had you write a sript that made colour bars, I just can't remember what the program was called :(
Importing my clips with audio is making *huge* rendered files and I don't have time to get rid of audio in some of the other ways (VirtualDub would take forever, I may as well re-rip them all :S)

So, I went to the first OTW chat, and really thought it was great. I was sad that the next two were at times when I was at work, so I had to miss them, but the Asian/Australian time zone one was on the weekend, so I didn't have to worry about it.

So. I got up this morning at 5:30 to go to the chat, only to find out it had been canceled since no one said they could make it. :(

In other news, we all had a huge panic attack yesterday since my pregnant sister and her husband got into a car accident yesterday. They're both ok, but they're missing a large part of the front-right side of the car. But they were able to drive it the rest of the way here. It's crazy, they live in Toronto, and drive on the 401 all the time, but they get into an accident on the 15 at 10 at night when it was statistically improbable that there would even be another car on the road! Which is actually kind of why there was the accident, since the other guy was trying to turn onto the road like there weren't any other cars on it (he was charged for failing to yield). Still, it's really going to suck trying to make the 5 hour trip home in their wrecked car.

Now, onto fandom stuff. I had done this meme a couple times before, but then the website that you had to do it through was taken down. But [livejournal.com profile] mercury973 just posted a new version of it, so I jumped all over it: Who comments the most on this journal? )

A couple things I find interesting about the results:
-Ah [livejournal.com profile] carr0ts1979, you're still my top commenter, even though we've hardly talked in years. I still miss you a whole lot, and you should be online more. You're totally awesome ([livejournal.com profile] itsjustkristen too, I miss you guys so much!).
-I was kind of surprised to see all the QaF people on this list. I suppose it only makes sense, since I was far more active in that fandom than I am in SGA, but it just seems so long ago for me (and I guess in my head this meme should only start from the last time I did it :P)
-I'm totally *not* surprised that the SGA people that made it into my top ten ([livejournal.com profile] maekala, you need to join [livejournal.com profile] paradise_city and I in one of our long ramble-y comment threads sometime :)
-It makes me kind of nostalgic, to see all the people I used to talk with all the time, but we've drifted apart. Sometimes because they've left LJ, sometimes since we've moved into different fandoms.
-I'm a bit amazed at the number of people on this list who I just have *no* idea who they are. I don't so much worry about the people who only left one comment (I'm a vidder, and have done a couple posts that have brought people from all over to comment), but some of the ones who have posted more than once (like 3 people in my top 50 who, I just don't remember).
-It also makes me a bit sad to see some of the people who gave me my fear of [livejournal.com profile] metafandom higher up on the list.

So, while we're talking about comments, I'd like to apologize for being a crappy commenter lately. I'm going to try harder (yeah, we'll see how long that lasts! *has no willpower*), so if I'm suddenly commenting more, it's because I've always wanted to, but have been to lazy in the past. *nods*

Also, *is excited* I'm going to a game tonight! *points to icon* With my brother-in-law, so I might actually be able to understand what's going on without the commentator's telling me! (Does that make me a bad fan?)
