Frequently Asked Questions (last updated September 24, 2013)

So I checked DA the other day, left it alone for about a half-hour, then came back to the website and proceeded to wonder if I'd entered the wrong URL by mistake.  Dagnabbit, DA did another site revamp.  I've heard people compare it to Tumblr, but since I don't frequent Tumblr much I think it looks more like Facebook at the moment.

I can understand that DA is trying to compete with both those websites, and trying to incorporate more social media into the site.  Still, I subscribe to the theory of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it," and I don't see what was so wrong with the old format that they felt the need to tweak it.  Or maybe that's just the stubborn part of me that whines "but I don't like change!" whenever a website I visit a lot makes changes to its layout.  I guess I'll get used to this new layout... right about the time DA decides to revamp the site again.  :XD:

In other Internet-related news... I turned on my laptop yesterday to make a quick check of my e-mail and messages... and proceeded to spend the next hour-and-a-half fighting with my computer.  Google Chrome has decided it no longer wants to work on Jazz, and will open for a few seconds, only to crash.  I tried every fix I could find online -- restarting the computer, checking my firewall, uninstalling and reinstalling the application, changing my user profile, even the "no-sandbox" trick.  No dice.  Blargh.  :rage:

Since my old version of IE was clunky and slow and Windows wanted me to install three different system updates before I could upgrade it, I ended up downloading Firefox instead.  It's similar enough to Chrome that I've had very little problem using it, and while, like the DA revamp, it'll take a bit of getting used to, I'm pretty pleased with it so far.

Just wish I knew why Chrome was deciding to throw fits, though... maybe I need to take Jazz to an expert and see what's up.

Still chugging away at Blue Moon and Black Night.  At this rate it doesn't look like I'll get it finished before TFCon, though I promise to have the whole thing posted before Halloween.  Wish me luck...

NaNoWriMo is coming up... and at this time I've decided to bow out of it for this year.  There's just too much else going on in November, and since I already participated in Camp NaNo in April (even if I didn't meet my word count), I figure I've made my contribution.  I feel bad for not participating this year, but at the same time, there's only so much one person can do.  And between work, the animals, TFCon, my sister's annual Thanksgiving visit, my other writing, and helping my brother get ready for his mission, I doubt I'll have time to do a regular NaNo count on top of it all.  Maybe next year...

Four more days until I fly out for TFCon... geez, time has whipped past.  I'm excited and yet nervous at the same time -- I've never been to Chicago or a TFCon, and I have no idea what to expect.  The fact that everyone who finds out I'm going to the Windy City promptly tells me to "be careful" isn't really helping either.  I know Chicago's a big city, but from the way some people talk about it you'd think that anyone who ventures outside in Chicago gets shot.  It's not like I'm planning on going on long walks alone at night or anything, I'm going to try to be careful... but at the same time I do want to see things besides the hotel while I'm there.  Why else would I plan on going a day early?

I do have a friend I'm meeting up with while I'm there, and since she knows the area I feel pretty safe in her company.  So there's that.  :)

If you're at TFCon Chicago this year, look for the weirdo in the kimono and Sky-Byte mask.  :giggle:  If you're lucky you may even get a haiki -- I plan on writing a couple to recite on request.

Okay, on to packing for my trip.  Just got to decide which book to take on the plane -- the steampunk adventure, the historical fantasy, or the post-apocalyptic sci-fi...

Random question: How does one hypothetically show that a character is at the mercy of an omnipotent being, say one trapped in a Clingy piece of Loyal Phlebotinum that forces the holder to move between locations on a semi-regular basis?
