Long time no see...

Castle--Castle/Kate
I realized I have not posted anything for a long time...

Very busy in RL now..have not even time to read so many of the big bang fics...just keep bookmarking them...

In the next 2 weeks, all my fav tv shows will start...but will miss White Collar though...Why can they just produce a full season with 22-24 episodes rather than do it in Summer/Winter between seasons...

'Go on' is interesting...will continue to watch it...but 'Baby Daddy' was a waste of time...they didnt even have the baby more than some seconds in each episode..

Love the new tag system of LJ...I always had problems selecting the tags in certain communities...

Long weekend

Castle--Castle/Kate
First long weekend of the year...so confusing! already spent 1 day just lounging around..have to do some work tomorrow

Started watching Rizzoli & Isles last weekend and now am up to date on it. Liking this show bit more than other crime/police shows am watching. Especially the characters. Gotta find more shows with female characters in good leading roles.

BAD Internet Laws Heading Your Way

Spread the word, even you're not a US citizen, it is important for everyone!! It easy to do and it can change everything. More info by clicking on the banner.

Website Blocking

The government can order service providers to block websites for infringing links posted by any users.

Risk of Jail for Ordinary Users

It becomes a felony with a potential 5 year sentence to stream a copyrighted work that would cost more than $2,500 to license, even if you are a totally noncommercial user, e.g. singing a pop song on Facebook.

Chaos for the Internet

Thousands of sites that are legal under the DMCA would face new legal threats. People trying to keep the internet more secure wouldn't be able to rely on the integrity of the DNS system.

Get on the phone and call your representative. Express your disapproval. Tell him or her exactly how you feel, and that you don't support this. Tell your friends to call their representatives, their Congressperson, and complain. Mention that you are a registered voter that takes your civic responsibility seriously and that you will use that vote to express your feelings about this.

“We support the bill’s stated goals — providing additional enforcement tools to combat foreign ‘rogue’ websites that are dedicated to copyright infringement or counterfeiting,” the Internet companies wrote in Tuesday’s letter. “Unfortunately, the bills as drafted would expose law-abiding U.S. Internet and technology companies to new uncertain liabilities, private rights of action and technology mandates that would require monitoring of websites.”  The chamber-led coalition in support of the bill includes Walmart, Eli Lilly & Co. and Netflix.

Google and other opponents of the legislation argue that restricting the Internet in the U.S. sets a bad international precedent and that the language defines infringing too broadly.

Why is it that I am able to read my Inbox, but not my Friends page...What's going on LJ??

And also able to post this...

bookmark trouble

Castle--Castle/Kate
Oh, I am so angry at the Yahoo and Google. (Don't believe the icon)

Since morning (8 ish) I have been working on my bookmarks. I had exported them to a html file. But I thought I will brush up the tags, delete some, change a couple and tag the untagged bookmarks. Just as I finished the last bookmark, I was going to export it again and they all just disappear!

Are they not supposed to warn us, before deleting all bookmarks? I can still see them on the Sidebar, but not on the Del website.

I tried Google bookmarks, I already had some 500 bookmarks (no fanfics), some 3 years old, in them . I had forgotten about them. They would not delete at all. Everything is going wrong today. I would check the boxes, press 'delete' and the boxes just un-check. I finally had to do a full delete on them, all together. And then I could not import the the html file. The toolbar has no option for importing bookmarks. I just removed the toolbar.

Now I am trying Diigo. I have pressed the 'import' and its saying it will take some time. Just hope it finishes by evening. Is it supposed to take such a long time to import?

I had just deleted all my story favourites from FF.net and bookmarked them last week. Also moved my LJ 'memories'. So all my fanfics were bookmarked on Delicious. Over a 1000.... :(

This just means I will have to save a bookmark twice in two different places from now on.

Moving back home. Have been away for more than three years with only one visit. Leaving UK. Cant believe I am going to miss the chips, fried chicken, cold and wet climate or cold and sunny climate.....

Soooo tiring to pack up 3 years of stuff....

Of course I will get back to 3 full home-cooked meals and TV and hot climate

And there will be slow internet...so less fanfiction to read
