||Ask not for whom the ban falls...
Posted on February 17th, 2012
|Wow. Today was a bit of a shocker online. There was a bad fight over on UF that resulted in several temporary bans and one of the core members getting perma-banned. Add to that many protested by silencing their voice on the board today. Quite a shock coming from that group.
I basically came to this after we'd spent the morning running some errands we didn't finish yesterday. I was already in a mood to just lose myself in my thoughts, and this cemented it.
Aside from the errands, the only productive thing I did today was update the category info for the new programming project (ie, the one that the Notebook is about) on Sourceforge.
Most of the day was spent sort of numb; the news from UF kinda put a black cloud over the day. I idled the day away playing old games like Jigsaws Galore or The Cube while thinking about different things (mostly pony related things).
I did manage a very pleasant surprise: I've been randomly checking Hasbro's store to see if they will ever restock the blind bag set and the figures I can't find locally. Today I checked and they were all in stock! $75 down the drain, but that's not bad considering it would probably have cost close to $90 or so to buy them locally. That's 24 blind bag ponies and the three figures I was looking for. Naturally I also alerted EqD about this.
AFTER placing my order.
Most of the last hour was spent attempting to locate a specific MLP fic I read last summer. In the end I found two *similar* fics, but not it.
The link for the day is a simple short video of a dancing cat.
