Stupid Germs

weather: sunny
outside: 15°C
mood: germie

Dear Germs,

You got Husband Guy, but face it, your attempts at pioneering a settlement in my throat and sinus ARE NOT WORKING. About every other day in the last week, you have had something of a Boink Fest, but know that the weekend is coming up. I can get plenty of sleep on the weekend. I will smite each and every one of you with NeoCitron.

Thank you, die quickly.


Dear Universe,

Don't encourage them.

No LJ E-Mail Notification

weather: sunny
outside: 15°C
mood: blah

Hmmm... e-mail notification has been screwy for me in the last day or two. There's been nothing mentioned anywhere. I wonder if it's Hotmail being a pain... I've never had problems with LJ reply notifications even though I heard about Hotmail blocking LJ a long time ago. This started yesterday.

Has this been happening to anyone else lately?

Die, Annoying Ad Banners, Die

weather: cloudy
outside: 22°C
mood: amused

I haven't seen a pop-up window in ages - Mozilla so rules.

I haven't seen a third party ad banner in ages. I'm mapping as many ad banner sites as I can find to "127.0.0.1" in my /etc/hosts. I was given a really good list to start and I added ones that I found along the way. Then, I'm running a tiny personal web server (mem: 1.7M) on my machine to serve up a transparent image in the place of the ad banner image.

The Internet is very quiet.
