A Little Help Needed


[info]alafaye
A few events have decided to fall on the end of this month:
1) My sibling and I both need minutes for our phones
2) Our pets need food/shaving/litter
3) My regular Monday shift is now a vacation day; the store will be open, but my boss can't pay me time and a half, it being a holiday. So I now have the day off unasked for and just when I needed it.

The phone cards are $40 for both; the pet items are $45; the loss of the pay day amounts to $50 (this is 1/4 of my weekly pay as I only work part time; you can see how big a loss this is). If these hadn't fallen at the same time, I'd have been okay. But as per the rules of the universe, they did. I'm asking for only $90 -- about what I need to cover the phone cards and the loss to my pay check. If I get any beyond the $90, I'll put it aside for future pet food/supplies. I have a paypal which is the easiest and fastest way to get money to my bank account: tomeckoam@yahoo.com

Thank you for any help, even if it is just a signal boost.

"Saturn was the largest rocket in the world, the most complex and powerful ever to fly, and remains so to this day. The fact that it was developed for a peaceful purpose is an exception to every pattern of history, and this is one of the legacies of Apollo." -- Margaret Lazarus Dean, Leaving Orbit: Notes from the Last Days of American Spaceflight, 2015

Olde Liberty Fiber Faire


[info]wolfsilveroak
Due to extenuating circumstances, as of May 25, 2017, Mark and I are no longer associated with the Olde Liberty Fiber Faire, in any way.


Actions have been taken by other people without the consent and knowledge of the full committee, and as a result, created a negative atmosphere that I, Mark, and several others want no part of.


As a fiber artist who has not only participated in this faire as a vendor the last 2 years, but also was on the committee for the last year+, I cannot, in good conscience, any longer recommend this faire to other fiber related people as a place to be a vendor at.

I thank those vendors who participated in this year's faire. Maybe I'll see you at other events in the future.

Horror Fest Reveals!


[info]alisanne
The [livejournal.com profile] hp_darkarts Horror Fest Master List has been posted, which means I can now claim my submission.

I wrote Heart and Soul, a relatively short story featuring Ron/Gabrielle and a Veela mating gone terribly wrong. I'm not sure now horrible it was, but I tried for creepy. I plan to repost soon, so if you're in the mood for something different, give it a whirl and let me know what you think. If it's any consolation, no one dies. ;)

Also, this was my first time participating and it was definitely different (and kinda fun). I may even try it again next year. Thank you [personal profile] writcraft for being so lovely and encouraging.

Toying with the idea of a whoverse au where the free energy project (army of ghosts - fall of torchwood one) was actually a raging success and how that might affect the world. Considering entire industries would just collapse overnight... and Torchwood now has the ability to stripmine other dimensions. I feel like the doctor would not be amused.

Good news: the 2-3 day delivery was more like 24 hours. New modem!
Good news: successfully found out the account information for the internet.
Bad news: still not working. Flatmate's just gone to work and I cant find whether we have another wall jack to test. The router has power and it's hosting the wifi network, it just won't connect to the internet. It's not a modem problem or a cable problem, I switched all those out for new.

So I'll wait until flatmate's home again and see if we have another jack hiding behind some heavy furniture or something. Otherwise we might need some actual tech support because I'm about to hit my limit of helpfulness.

Update
Bad news: flatmate's sister doesn't know of another jack either.
Bad news: troubleshooting at a neighbour's house suggests the jack is not the problem, and also that I shouldn't be trusted to cross the road at night. (The streets here are not always generous with the lighting...)

Good news: apparently this error message means the modem is configured for vdsl instead of adsl
Bad news: configuring for adsl doesn’t actually fix it.

Most of you know this, but for those of you who don’t…

I have a small part on the first episode of MST3K’s first revival episode. Erin Gray and I get to deliver all the exposition about Jonah’s backstory. It’s pretty great, and this was a freaking dream come true for me.
