--I'd be more pleased about having only 60-odd tabs open (..."only 60-odd" *sighs*) if it was because I'd actually gotten them dealt
with, but I'll settle for having made the OneTab add-on work. It's not nothin'.
--I meant to mention this back when I saw the Tori Amos concert a couple of weeks ago, but I forgot. *g* One hazard of the way I handle the acquisition of new albums: when I was at the merch table I looked at the deluxe edition CD of Unrepentant Geraldines
, with its sticker announcing that it contained the bonus track "Forest of Glass", and I frowned and thought, I'm sure I ordered the deluxe version, so why don't I know that song?
Answer: because I bought the album on CD and then torrented it so I didn't have to actually, you know, open
the CD packaging and rip it myself. So I've had that song for months without remembering to listen to it, one way or another. *facepalm*
--One of my random to-do list items for a while has been to actually make a list of my computer games, since I know I have a whole bunch that I haven't played. Yesterday I finally threw a basic spreadsheet together, and I have over 70. Of which I've played...fewer than ten, certainly in any real way. This is what comes of Steam sales and Humble Bundles, I tell you.
(Four of those ten-or-so are StarCraft: original, Brood War, and the two chunks of SCII that're out so far. And come to that, I haven't even finished SCII: Heart of the Swarm yet, for all my excitement about it. [I've played through most of it, but Casual Job went back in before I finished, and that was...a year and a half ago? O_o I enjoyed it, but not nearly as much as I enjoyed the Terran campaign of SCII in relation to the original game. The Zerg were changed more, I think.)
--On the games front, while I was away I was persuaded--not through conscious effort on anyone's part--to get a PS3. K and her family have one that they're using largely as a media server (we have
a media server here, in the form of my retired desktop system, but I really liked the interface), and Ginny has one, and the combo of "convenient media server interface, Blu-ray (which we didn't have at all), and above all, Netflix" sold me. Netflix is--or was, last I checked--such a pain in the ass to run under Linux that we never bothered, and scruloose
flatly refused to maintain a Windows partition solely for the purpose (and fair enough--he would indeed have been the one maintaining it). But inexpensive legal media! I am very much in favor of this. Yes.
(Plus I hear the thing allows one to "play games"...? ^_-)
--A link: Foster Dad John, who operates my favorite kitten!cam Livestream, adopted one of the kittens from his last litter (the first time he kept one, out of 42 litters of fosters). His own cats aren't allowed in with the fosters, but the other day while he was in with the current batch, Trillian--the recent adoptee--got in as he was leaving. And what an entrance! ^_^ Behold: "Suddenly, Trillian!"
, which includes a slow-motion replay. Hee!
