We're off to see the Renn Faire (Part II)

Alright, alright. I thought about just blowing this crap off and lying in bed and reading a book or just going to bed if I could doze off but I figured i might as well get it over with. It's too bad that I can't just blog through telepathy. There are plenty of times where I'm off somewhere and thinking interesting streams of consciousness but when it comes time to actually find a computer and tap it out, it's just too much effort and planning. That's why I tend to just repost interesting news articles and crap I find. That requires almost no thought and just a little bit of color commentary. Not to mention that I really find most of it pretty darn interesting.

Anyway, enough dawdling. Here are the rest of the Renn Faire pictures. I'm sorta glad I didn't take my camera to ubercon or anything. Not that there was actually anything to take pictures of other than the people I know or met, but it means that I don't have yet something else to have to caption and post here.

God damn spamguard

I haven't been receiving email notification of LJ comments for quite a while now and I wasn't sure whether it was a problem with LJ or with yahoo blocking the messages. I assumed it was simply LJ that had crapped up because, quite frankly, I get craploads of spam a day that makes it through the spam filter. Still, what ends up in the spam filter is also excessively large and it's not possible to search its contents. That means it's almost impossible to find a specific email even if you KNOW it's in there somewhere.

For example, I just cleared the buffer around 12 hours ago and in that amount of time my spam mail folder had 167 messages. Luckily Jirel had commented to the previous entry within that time and I only had to search through a few pages of messages before I found that yahoo was indeed sending them to the spam graveyard. Bleh. I flagged the message as 'not spam' but I have no clue if it's really going to keep them coming through. I had also toggled that HTML email option around for a bit thinking that maybe that was the culprit, so it's even possible that it was a LJ problem all along, or at least one with HTML emails.

All of this makes me wonder if maybe I shouldn't just shift my email address. It's a collasal pain in the ass but a person shouldn't get over 300 stinking spam messages within a day. Even if it's caught in the bulk folder it's still a pain in the ass.

Rehersal and Wedding Sneak Peek

So I think on my list of 'to do' entries on catchup, the next should be gencon now that I've gotten the renn faire out of the way. That should be a pretty speeding post and caption for pretty obvious reasons. Actually, I'm not even sure if it is obvious or if I mentioned much of anything about gencon this year before now. Anyway, before I get to that I had all the rehersal and wedding pictures downloaded from the camera and I figured I'd pop up a picture of me from each. I think in general I'm going to just pass on putting up most of the pictures other than a sample or two. I mean, none of you know any of the people and I've always found looking at someone else's vacation or wedding photos to be a collasal bore.
