Spring is...here?

The daffodils seem to think it's Spring already. I took this outside the barnyard this morning. It was 68F today (although the high is supposed to be 35F tomorrow). I sure hope these little guys know what they're doing!


So the subject of apocafic came up the other day and it got me to thinking about angst in general. I know there's plenty of that to go around in the Holmes 'verse, but I don't remember specifically any apocafic. Can anyone recommend something? Or superangst in general? I know there's Alone on the Water from BBCSherlock, but what else?

Just please, nothing based on Elementary. I can't deal with that show. As always, my heart really belongs in 1895.

Is there anyone still in the Buffyverse on my flist? This is the one I dredged up from remote storage. It's a riff on Neville Shute's On the Beach - very well-written, angsty, and romantic. I was pleased to see that http://www.allaboutspike.com is still out there and available.

Here's the direct link to the fic: http://www.allaboutspike.com/fic.html?id=132 It's called The Last Summer and it's by Annie Sewell-Jennings.

LJ Servers moving to Russia - confirmed.

Well, I guess a lot of you have heard about this by now, but if you haven't, looks as if LJ servers, which had been located in CA are now located in Russia. Speculation is that the Russian company which owns LJ may decide to shut down the English operation. If you have a Dreamwidth account, better start mirroring your content over there. I do have a DW account as Tripleransom, which I will be working on setting up in the near future. Feel free to friend me over there if you want to.

ARGH. I've been on LJ since 2002. I have so many friends here whose accounts are no longer active, or only barely that will be gone. And there is so. much. fic. buried in journals or comms that will be lost if LJ goes away.

This is going to be worse than Geocities if it does come to pass.



The footsteps of a gigantic hound?

I don't think so. We have a leash law here and thankfully, no one lets their dogs run loose anyway.

Someone was talking on lj about seeing a coyote in the middle of the day while out walking their dog. This person lives in CA, but the coyotes seem to be around here more and more. I've not seen one myself, only footprints in the snow, but the other day, I found this out in the field. Note the rather large hoofprint next to it for size comparison.

Wow, I've been absent from LJ for ages! I got so fed up with all the HooHah about the presidential election that I kind of shut down, I guess. I'm back now, though, and never fear, I've been working on my WAdvent entry, I haven't forgotten!

Meanwhile back at the farm, the usual wackiness has been ensuing. I guess the horses got to running the other night and Trip must have forgotten that the gate between the two fields was shut (as it always is for the winter). Anyway, he ran right into it, full tilt. I came out in the morning and saw the gate, then examined the horses one by one, expecting to see somebody all torn up, but all he had was a scrape or two on his legs. The gate however, is toast.

How he managed to do that without killing himself I don't know. Geez!
alek_morse referenced this in his lj, so I'm reposting the link here, since I'm guessing not many of you on my f-list read Russian (just to be clear, I don't either), but the review itself is in English.

The Curious-Incident of the Russian Sherlock Holmes is a very insightful review of the "old" Russian Series with Livanov and Solomin. If you haven't seen this series, you should. It's widely available on DVD and although it's subtitled and the subtitles are occasionally a bit odd, you already know what the actors are saying anyhow, so don't let that put you off.


I've talked about this on Facebook, but I'll post it here also. The JeremyBrett.info website is going away. I've decided not to renew it, because 1) I don't own the domain name and the woman who does won't even answer my emails, so I have no guarantee that we can continue anyway and 2) the database crashed and it would take nearly a thousand dollars to reprogram and migrate to another site.

Fortunately, the Wayback Machine has a number of copies and almost all of the content will continue to be available there, although of course, it can no longer be updated.
It can be accessed here: https://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.jeremybrett.info/


Radar is growing up! Look what a big boy he is now. He's very self-confident, very high energy, and very, very sweet. I think we won the kitten lottery with him.


Sacrilege Website

Hey, anybody know what happened to the Sacrilege website? (hwslash.net) I get a "failure to connect to webserver" error message.

It's been down for a while now. Is it gone for good? Did whoever owned it let it expire?
