#4521: Holy crap, it's WINTER

No one told me we'd have WINTER this year! WTF!!! How could it possibly snow in January like this? about how I expect they're talking about it on the news tonight. *sigh*

Woke up this morning to a winter wonderland, which continued the entire time I was at work. I was able to drive at the speed limit most of the way home but for side streets near the bunker, and idiots who couldn't comprehend the fact that the highway was merely wet.

Total accumulation: two inches.

Anyway, so we're still getting snow squalls, and the forecast says we might get as much as six inches tomorrow. Whee!

This is one reason to back up your freakin' data, people. It's a virus that encrypts your data, and it's not a crackable cypher, which means if you don't pay the $500 you might as well take your hard drive out and hit it with a hammer.

I don't have anything on my hard drive which is irreplacable, because I periodically back up my data. I probably do not back up as often as I should, but since the critical stuff doesn't change very often (a lot less often than it should considering I style myself a writer of fiction) that's probably not as bad as I like to think it is.

And yes, I run antivirus software, and I never open unsolicited attachments. And still expect that I'll get infections once in a while even while I fervently hope I do not.

A good AoSHQ thread on making soup stock.

This is the first I've heard of this shit. My werewolf name would be "Magic Beast" which really isn't all that cool, but at least I wouldn't be Moon Moon.

I can't believe we have Caramel Pecan Silk Supreme left more than a week after Christmas. Then again, we had that candy cane pie to get through....

    Seeing the title of Friday night's ST:TOS ep ("The Changeling") reminded me of one of my pet peeves. In DS9, Odo is the station security chief. He's…

    Last night I watched ST:TOS, ST:TNG, and ST:DS9 on H&I. I did it again tonight. DS9 in particular--they've gotten to the big war, to the time when…

    ...Mami must be destroyed. She's just plain evil. That's all there is to it. I don't think I have ever hated a character quite as much as I hate…
