July?!

I honest to god don’t mean to update only once a month. The months just go by so fast.

I haven’t been working on my Civilization mod for awhile, mostly because I’m trying to become better at the Warlords difficulty setting. Not that I have been playing all too much either recently.

I have begun my WOT reread. It’s not going too fast, or as fast as usual, but that might be because a) I’m not reading every day and b) when I do read I’m doing a more close-reading a là college cramming. The other problem might be out of the whole series New Spring and Eye of the World are books I’ve read more than the others.

Changed hosts. My new host uses DirectAdmin instead of cPanel, which might take some getting used to, but so far it is fine. One thing I really like is that each domain gets its own folder. With cPanel you needed WHM to do that, which usually cost more than regular cPanel. Even so, I still need to have a moiraine.meandraine.net subdomain for now, otherwise my redirect rule via .htaccess won’t work: it’ll just show an error page.

For some reason my vBulletin database is larger on this host than the last one. Don’t know why. Also, my disk usage meter has close to 40mb of data I can’t account for. I’ve waited a couple of days before sending in a ticket to ask about that. My other tickets (one for sales, others for transfer) have gotten answered nice and fast, so hopefully the same will be true here. So far, I am very happy with new host. 🙂

Also, MW forums aren’t down every 30 minutes. This is a nice change.

I’m kind of rambling here….

I need to find boxers for Elnore for two reasons: 1) It’s a part of her character, and 2) They’ll help keep her pants up. Caraline needs a new wig, and there is one girl who makes fur wigs that I like, but of course she is closed!

I want to go to Europe. 🙁

  1. Niklas gets a folder for each domain eventhough he’s cpaneling…

    You should try a WOT audio book *nods* They go by quickly, especially if you focus on something else.

    Europe is lovely! We walk around naked and have sex in the streets and everyone is happy.

    Finally, I’m not pleased Kate’s tag is larger than Vertex’. And to make it even worse, even Kat’s dolls is larger than vertex. Not pleased at all!

  2. You must have the WHM version of it then. Lucky.

    The problem I have with audiobooks is that the person reads them slower than I do. I guess I could speed them up, but then they’d sound like a mouse!

    Oh that reminds me! I was suppose to change a setting so the tags weren’t all different sizes. 😛

  3. *folds arms and looks at Niklas*

    *looks at him*

    *….looks at him!* 🙂 I have nothing to add about WHM.

    I thought you liked the skull boxers, but they did look a little bulky.

  4. Hi !!!

    Well I have no idea what WHM is, but I do hope you’re enjoying a nice 4th of July today, Marie… any fireworks there ?

    I have many American friends, and that reminds me that I have to write to Ayla right away 🙂

    Good luck with your hosts and websites !!!

    I’m also re-reading, by the way, my Lash story again, since I *casually* decided to modify the name of a very important character and change the last name of the very star of the series 😛

    You -and any other speed reader- would have great difficulty reading my stories, as they are highly concentrated and feature so many places, events, feelings and descriptions in a number of pages that is surprisingly low when compared to other Fantasy works

    They are like a pure and concentrated orange juice, instead of a juice mixed with large amounts of water…

    Well, Ciao !!!

  5. I don’t know, I’ve only seen speed readers on TV infomercials. Well, I do read a little fast, I guess, but real speed readers put me to shame.

  6. You know Marie, I’m quite skeptical about speed reading… I think that reading a good story at such a high speed would be like going to the theatre and watching a 2-hour movie in five minutes, or like gulping down a nice wine instead of enjoying it slowly 😛

    My friend Ignacio is a speed reader, used to pick up huge bricks and finish them in two days, but he had great trouble with my 64000 words Lash novel (said it forced him to read slowly to get it) and then, whenever I ask him anything about my characters, or the powers or the events, he says “What? What part are you talking about?”

    So I don’t know…

    Do you really get all the details and the feeling of the narrative ???
