Is anyone pretty comfortable with their knowledge of Fred Burkle? I've got a couple of questions, and I only watched most of Angel once.

I think I'm covered for now, thanks!

Has there been any good fic for [livejournal.com profile] spn_summergen that both a) features ladies and b) doesn't involve any canon after S8? Because if there are, I would like to read them.

Also, anybody have any SPNJ2BB recs? I haven't looked there at ALL yet. /o\

Sooo, one of my fannish resolutions for the year was to write more Saga fic, but especially in fandoms this small, it helps my motivation a LOT to write for a specific person (if for no other reason than because I'm likely to get at least one comment!). So if you follow me and are interested, I would like to write you a Saga fic!

FYI I find it easier to work with "What if" or "What happened when" scenarios, as opposed to prompts that are like, "Write something about The Stalk." Moods or settings can be helpful, too, though. And obviously if you have some particular fic you want, I would like to try and accommodate you.

Basically: PLEASE LEAVE ME SAGA PROMPTS. :D

So I am attempting to write this fic that has the Sochi Olympics smack in the middle of it, and I am having a heck of a time finding information about athlete experiences there. If anyone has any articles, blogs they followed, anything like that that went into specifics of how athletes got to Sochi (did the entire US men's hockey team fly to Russia together?) and what they did once they got there (how and when did they get their security passes?), I would be extremely appreciative.

What I'd really love is some first-hand accounts from athletes who competed, but I'm not finding anything like that; so far I've only been able to find spectator accounts.

Ugh, research. :P

So, I am getting my new laptop set up, and there is this image on the corner of my screen that I can't get rid. What is the arrow in the lower right corner??

EDIT: Turns out it was my number lock key. :P

Okay, my Tab Mix Plus, a plugin for Firefox, just updated, and now it refuses to open new tabs next to the current tab, even though that box is clicked, and it is driving me up the wall.

I don't actually know what help I am asking for, unless any of you have had the same exact problem and also managed to fix it.

It is time to get a new computer. My old reliable laptop, nearly five years old, is dying by inches.

So, question: what processor do I need to be able to stream in HD comfortably? The internet is not being very helpful in answering this. And does the kind of processor matter much? The price seems to vary by processor, even when the processing speed is the same, which confuses me.

Please note I'm not gaming or anything. The most taxing thing I am going to ask of this computer is let me watch hockey games and use ghcat at the same time. :)

I've been enjoying everyone else talking about various subjects through the month of December, and since January is a much more open month, I'd like to do it, too. Except I'm not starting until January 6, because that's when I'll for sure have access to high-speed internet.

RL topics will probably be locked. Too-personal topics may be shot down, but you're welcome to ask.

Days! )

I asked people for topic ideas back when I posted every day in November, none of which I wrote about, so I'll use those to fill in empty days. For the record, those topics are: general writing process for [livejournal.com profile] morbane; math in media and something about teaching, both for [livejournal.com profile] brutti_ma_buoni; Saga for [livejournal.com profile] zanthinegirl, general mpreg goodness for [livejournal.com profile] scarletscarlet.

Y'all, my friendslist has suddenly started looking very strange, as of about four days ago. When I view it in Firefix (version 12.0), almost the whole first page is made up of ugly stripes, like my layout gone wrong. The same thing is happening with my other LJ account, which also uses an Expressive layout (althoug a different one). I've tried just restarting Firefox, but that has no effect, and as far as I'm aware I haven't gotten Firefox updates recently. Everything looks fine on Internet Explorer, though.

Is anyone else having this problem? I don't know what to do about it.

EDIT: I figured out how to clear the cache, and that did the trick. Hurrah.

I recently received a PM from [livejournal.com profile] 3hours, who is new to LJ-land and to Buffydom and who wondered if I knew where she could find a beta for her Spuffy fic. She says she looked at the beta listings at some of the Spuffy archives and that they were pretty outdated.

You guys, I have no idea. Are there any updated lists around of people up for betaing BtVS fic? ([personal profile] slaymesoftly? I feel like you'd know this if anyone would.) Or, alternately, is anyone interested in beta-ing a Spuffy fic? If you would, then you could drop a comment here or PM [livejournal.com profile] 3hours directly.

[livejournal.com profile] 3hours also asked if I knew of a place online with a timeline of BtVS. I don't know of one - all I can think of is the Buffy Dialogue Database, which is not really that at all. Help?

Is there a relatively fuss-free way to take a bunch of data from, say, Excel and put it into a table or table-like format in html? (And by "a bunch" we're talking 10 rows, ~6 columns; if I have to retype it by hand I will be annoyed, but I can do it. And watch another Farscape ep in the meantime, mayhap.)

I ask because rather than doing any of the things I was supposed to be doing this morning, I have been faffing about with fic feedback statistics, and now I want to share.

EDIT: Some lovely soul on the web has created Tableizer, into which you can paste your spreadsheet data and get html code for a nice table. Yay, internet.

Frakked Up Beyond All Recognition, by [archiveofourown.org profile] thistlerose. Because who knows what kind of other experiments the Cylons are running.

Oh, hey! Now I can read ALL THE HELO/ATHENA FIC. And any other fic people might feel inclined to point me to. What should I read? Pointers to past recs posts you've made would be nifty, too.

In pursuit of academic excellence, I watched the ST:TOS episode "The Trouble with Tribbles" today. (Tribbles make excellent exponential function problems.)

And, uh. I was kind of charmed. It was so silly! It's been years and years since I've watched TOS, long before I developed any taste. All the ST I've seen in the last few years, mostly early TNG with clips of DS9 or Enterprise here and there, has been so dreadfully, laughably earnest. Whereas this knew precisely how silly it was and ran with it. I didn't even hate Kirk! Plus I have a weakness for 60s TV, with the over-bright sets and the stiff non-acting.

So I might be watching some more?

(In slightly related news, can anyone point me to a Firefly icon that incorporates Zoe's line, "We live in a spaceship, Dear"? I want a Joss-related explicitly SF-themed icon.

ETA: Check out the totally nifty icon [personal profile] next_to_normal made me! Isn't it spiffy?)

As usual Buffyverse Classic Recs is coming the end of October. Yay!

Now, I have a question for y'all: is there any particular sort of thing you'd be interested in seeing recced? I've gone through a lot of my favorite topics already for previous classic recs sessions, but if y'all have something you'd like to see recs of, I might could accommodate you. :)
