anal retentive

So I’m totally anal retentive when it comes to organizing files and photos on my computer and yes, as sad as it is, on Flickr. Every time I think I find a good way to organize my Flickr photos, I change my mind.

How do you organize yours?

My first DMCA

Late last night, I finally sent my first ever official DMCA takedown notice to the host of a website who felt the need to copy, in whole, one of my entries from this site. I had to send this because there was never any way I could contact the website owner. They have no information on their site, not even a form to fill out, and the domain is protected with the information of the host instead. Heck, even though my entry appears in category “search engines,” their “about” page is still the default WordPress filler text. Commenting on a stolen entry gives the error that you must be logged in to comment. So a DMCA was the only route to go.

8 Things

So Elyse has tagged me once again and is forcing me to use my brain… or attempting to. So here we go…

Rules: Each person posts the rules before their list, then they list 8 things about themselves. At the end of the post, that person tags and links to 8 other people then visits those peoples sites and comments letting them know that they have been tagged, and to come read the post, so they know what they have to do.

1. I have a hard time coming up with lists about myself.

2. I’ve had this saved as a draft for a couple of weeks without adding anything to it because I couldn’t think of anything.

3. I’ve been really tired lately.

4. I’ve not been sleeping well at night for some reason.

5. Just can’t fall asleep then when I do am not allowed to sleep long enough or deep enough for a good sleep.

6. I haven’t been this tired in years.

7. I’m also completely uninspired when it comes to writing lately.

8. Though all of the above, I am still happy in life. So don’t get me wrong. Very happy, just extremely tired lately… hoping I am not getting sick, really…

stinking annoying

How annoying is it to get an email that tells you to fill out a form online or your message cannot be delivered to the recipient? How much more annoying is it to get one in response to a reply you sent to someone, not even a “new” email? The most recent one I’ve had to do was from ChoiceMail One and it required a first name, last name, reason for sending the email, and security code. The email instructing me to fill out that form also let me know that if I failed to fill this form out within four days, my email would automatically be discarded. Good thing I happened to get it within three days.

I’m sorry, but if you are that afraid of getting spam… get off the internet, it’s just too much for you.
