Why did I never put it together that Figwit is Flight of the Concords guy? I mean, I knew he was in the movies, I just didn't know he was Figwit! Man, years late on that one, huh?

It's all good!

I can only take a bit of Flight of the Concords at a time, my embarrassment squick comes up during that. But it's very funny!

Hello, my dear. For some reason you were in my mind a lot today and I just wanted to tell you that I adore you and think the world of you. I miss you.

thanks, hana. I'm working hard and it takes me forever to get anything done, like walking through sludge.

Ha! I should you'd have better links about the DDoS attacks than I would.

I hope people take killabeez's advice (particularly about Ao3), but most of the lost of fic I've encountered is less from sites going down than from deletion and lock ups.

Never-the-less, Ao3, people!

Glad they were useful!

Backups everywhere would be good.
