Flowers: Primroses (Spring)

Damned ISPs

Yesterday my ISP failed to let me log on, or rather it logged on for about eight seconds and logged off again! And what's more my back-up ISP decided to come out in sympathy as apart from allowing me to download and send one small batch of email, it too decided that it didn't want to let me doing anything all day.

The one glimmer of light in this was that I did manage to get a story finished :-) So that was something at least, now I can get on with doing my edit on it. So I suppose the day wasn't a complete waste of time.

So now I just have to catch up on the email that didn't download and the various LJ posts and replies. Who knows I might even get back to 'normal' later today - but I'm not holding my breath.
Flowers: Primroses (Spring)


A couple of days ago I posted, or rather thought I had posted, this to my own LJ, only to discover today (after my day of absence due to my dear ISP) that I had somehow inadvertently posted it to a community ::sigh::

Anyway, I am reposting it (apologies to those of you on muncle who have seen it before) here, because ... Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time and my intention was to post it to my own journal :-)

There was a very interesting discussion on fanthropology about LoCs and reviews, which led me to decide to share my own thoughts :-)

Warning: the bit labelled 'LoCs' is a rant, and one which a few of you will have come across me making on more than one occasion in the past :-)
