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...

2011 was awful. I just hope 2012 will be happy for me.
From the flist:
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.
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.

“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.

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.
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
Maybe i will try to see House Live stream, but others will have to wait till morning...:(
So so so excited....
Still 1 more week to go before other shows start.....had spent a lot of time between April to August watching many TV shows...will have to coordinate somehow when all start together next week....
Also spent the time reading lot of fanfics, so now have to wait for bigbang to be over...feels like have read all the good ones available......
- Current Mood: cold
will try to write something every now and then.....though will be mostly using to read Merlin fics.....
