morgandawn: (Lavender Field Here Now)
This is an journal for and by adults dealing with sexual and political as well as personal issues. If you are under the age of 18, please get the appropriate consent before proceeding.

Fan:
I am a multi-media fan, love sci-fi and fantasy and have been involved in reading and writing fan fiction for the past 12 years. I am in my 40s (to give you a rough age and experience range). My fan fiction can be found here. Fiction with adult ratings or adult subject matter will be labeled and cut-tagged. Please read responsibly. My fan vids can be found in streaming format here

Person:
My other interest is a rare genetic condition called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) that I have been diagnosed with.   I also ask that you take time to read this before posting or commenting about EDS.  Please note that comments on typos, grammar and formatting will be deleted. LJ formatting problems may or may not be able to be fixed - do not feel offended if I am unable to respond to your request. Hopefully after reading about EDS, you will understand why it is difficult to type and participate online.

WARNING: If you a
re looking for more info about EDS please header over to the volunteer EDS Alert blog here. This is a private journal and EDS is not the main topic of discussion. Please do not give out the link to my private journal (unless you are interested in fannish things, vidding or disussions about slash and sexuality). If you're only interested in EDS, I tag my EDS posts here.

LJ Info:
I really don't have a friending policy. In fact I am somewhat haphazard about it. If you are adding me to your journal reading list and want to be added back, it does help to drop me a note who you are and what are your interests. I have extensive filters and try to keep up with people that way. My blog contains a wide range of topics: personal, political, financial, legal. fannish, and medical. I can be silly and serious. cranky and goofy -often in the same post. I have a very twisted sense of humor - if you think something is funny, more likely than not I am intending it to be funny. And sometimes I am intending it to be so even when you don't think it is funny. My humor requires a great deal of ....humour. And last if you are reading this journal or if you've asked to be added to my friends list to read locked posts - you are agreeing to this. Read it. And then if you want to be added to my friends list, drop me a comment with some info on who you are, what topics you are interested in and that you've read and agreed to the things I need in order for me to feel comfortable inviting you into the more private areas of my 'home.'

In the year 2525
If man is still alive
If woman can survive
They may find.....

Are we there yet? And where are the flying cars?
PS. Nothing posted on my blog or in any of my comments is legal advice. From time to time this journal will provide background on legal issues; it does not provide legal advice. Legal advice is tailored to the facts of your particular situation. If you need legal advice, consult an attorney.

Fiction with adult ratings or adult subject matter will be labeled as adult.  My writing involves adult themes that focus on  controversial subject matters and often contains both violence and/or sex, including character deaths and non-consensual acts.  Please read responsibly.

Most of my fan fiction was written years ago and has been previously published in fanzines. The posting date in this journal or any other site does not represent the actual publication date.

Update: April 15, 2013: The bulk of the fanzine information has been moved to Fanlore, the fan run wiki. You can access Fanlore's home page here.
_____________________________________
If you're looking for a list of fanzines by fandom, this is what I have so far:

Place of Honor:  Starsky & Hutch. Pepper has compiled the most amazing and complete fanzine listing. Mahvelous. Go here

1. Alphabetical listing
A-Team - list here (last updated in 1997) and here
Beauty & the Beast here and here
Buffy and Angel
Blake's 7  - Judith has an extensive list here
Dr Who - partial lists available here and here and here
Due South -Ray Vecchio Fanzines and  Ray Kowalski Fanzines
Inspector Morse here
The Magnificent 7 here
The Man From U.N.C.L.E - slash fanzines here, gen and slash fanzines here
The Professionals -The Hatstand  and Palely Loitering (with their own LJ here)
Quantum Leap - old list, needs updating
Rat Patrol - Excel spreadsheet here
Real Ghostbusters - here (defunct, last updated 2002). A more current list is here
Robin of Sherwood here
Seaquest here and here
The Sentinel - Loft Library -Slash Zines and Gen Zines
Smallville here
Shadow Chasers here (old archive)
Sherlock Holmes here
Stargate SG1 - old list here
Starsky & Hutch - Pepper's Amazing List With Every Possible Combination Except Pepperoni
Star Trek   - K/S Slash Zines and Star Trek Zinedex (gen/het/slash). An index of stories published in fanzines by title and author can be downloaded from the KirkSpockCentral mailing list (membership required).
Star Wars - Star Wars Collector's Bible (older list archived here)
Supernatural - here
Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea here
Xena/Hercules - partial list here

2. Multi-Fandom Lists

Ming's Fanzine Archives (Star Trek, Star Wars & other Fandoms - click on the pdfs for the list)
Fandom Wikis - FanLore and Fan History

3. What To Do With That Aging Fanzine Collection?  If you don't  want to sell your fanzines on eBay or at a convention, the  Fan Culture Preservation Project  will help fans find homes for their fanzine collections - either at the University of Iowa or  via fellow fans.  More here and  here.

What I like about the Fan Culture Project is that the University will pay for shipping and loading of the zines.  I have several friends whose health has declined, don't want to sell their collection, but want to find their fanzines a good home.

Other places to buy/sell your fanzines: the Zinelist Announcements List, its sister discussion mailing list  Zinelist or the SlashSwap mailing list. You can offer your fanzines on LJ at Fandom Swap.     Jim and Melody Rondeau will also agent your fanzines online and at conventions for a small commission. As a last resort head over to eBay but beware you may be charged 2-3x more than you would buying from fannish sources.

For new zines/in print zines only:  The Zine listing communities - one here on Dreamwidth and the mirror here on LJ. Melody Clark has started MediaFen, a fanzine listing blog. The RSS feed for LJ users is here. The direct blog link is here.

If you're trying to track down a fanzine producer whose website has moved or gone away, try using the Wayback Machine.  Ex:  The Zine Zone (last updated in 2003) is archived here.

4. Any other lists? Drop a note. And feel free to link here, as I'll update it.

Looking for Fanzine lists:
Star Trek - gen/het
Buffy/Angel - some zines listed on Fanlore
Highlander - some zines listed on Fanlore
Farscape
Firefly
Supernatural
X-Files - some zines listed on Fanlore

Due Date: May 26, 2017

Leave comments to protect national parks that are under threat. Do this before May 26, 2017. Only 7,000 comments have been submitted.

Some suggestions on what to say are herehttps://modernhiker.com/how-to-comment-on-trumps-national-monument-review

Where to go to leave comments (look for the comment button on the upper right: https://www.regulations.gov/document?D=DOI-2017-0002-0001

“The most contested of these Monuments have always seemed to be Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante, both of which – along with nearby Canyon of the Ancients – have fossil fuels beneath them. While those two Monuments have received the majority of headline coverage, California’s Carrizo Plain also sits near oil deposits and some oil companies maintain mineral rights below the protected lands in the Monument, and the Mojave Trails National Monument is under threat from the controversial Cadiz Water Project, which aims to drain an aquifer in the Mojave desert to water urban lawns in Orange County. “

I’ve put CA first, but the full list is below:

California
Berryessa Snow Mountain
Carrizo Plain
Giant Sequoia (REDWOODS!!!!!)
Mojave Trails
Sand to Snow
San Gabriel Mountains

Arizona
Grand Canyon-Parashant  (GRAND CAYON!!!)
Ironwood Forest
Sonoran Desert
Vermillion Cliffs

Colorado
Canyons of the Ancients

Idaho
Craters of the Moon

Maine
Katahadin Woods and Waters

Montana
Upper Missouri River Breaks

Nevada
Basin and Range
Gold Butte

New Mexico
Organ Mountains – Desert Peaks
Rio Grande del Norte

Oregon
Cascade Siskiyou

Utah
Bears Ears (NATIVE AMERICAN DRAWINGS!!!)
Grand Staircase-Escalante

Washington
Hanford Reach

In addition to the 22 land-based National Monuments, five marine National Monuments are being “reviewed” in accordance with the “Implementing an America-First Offshore Energy Strategy” executive order:

Marianas Trench
Northeast Canyons and Seamounts
Pacific Remote Islands
Papahanaumokuakea

The Museum of the Weird has been a place spoken of only in rumors for decades, but it wasn’t until Maxwell Keep wrote of his family’s connection to and adventures in the depository of paranormal artifacts that we had any first-person account of its existence.

Disney imaginer Rolly Crump seems to have had knowledge of this unique and frightening place, as he drew various elements of it during the design phase of the Haunted Mansion attraction. Whether Crump had first-hand knowledge of the museum or he was just somehow incredibly intuitive and/or channeling information from another dimension is unknown.

If This Is Wrong: A Film About Fandom from Franzeska Dickson on Vimeo.


It's a film about queer slash fangirls.  It is part of Franzeska's film school thesis. Part of the program is learning how to take a film from conception to the end - including learning how to fundraise to cover costs.
 

They're running their kickstarter right now! Lots of rewards, including a DVD of the movie and a paper zine.

Or, if you'd like to make a tax-deductible donation, you can do so through Franzeska's film school. There are instructions on their website.

New hard drive install and image restore went well. I was on my way by Monday. But even with all the software reinstalled I had to deal with


*corrupt outlook pst files
*multiple daily backups had to be tested and restored
*set up a weekly image backup - tested and restored
*fiddle with all the USB ports - matching USB 3.0 to USB 3.0 to make said backups faster
*order new USB hub, external hard drive and power strips
*buy a new vacuum cleaner (yes ours died) to have [personal profile] xlorp vacuum under the desk and behind the computer tower (dust!!)

then deal with (mainly driver problems)
*DVD player that won;t burn
*printers that won't print
*scanner that won't scan

all the while
*frantically testing DIY security cameras before the house next door gets torn down and rebuilt (with construction comes theft and break-ins).
*trying to create a front yard habitat for the feral cat living in a shed in the next door house about to be torn down. The shed protects her from coyotes at night and she will not enter our back yard due to another cat who has taken up residence


We're still not done with all of these so will continue to be elusive and non-resposnive

From Dreamwidth's recent post:

".... I'd like to take a moment and ask: if you're able to (and only if you're able!), please consider donating to the Russian LGBT Network/Российская ЛГБТ-сеть. They not only do excellent work across the Russian Federation, but are currently mobilizing to help evacuate LGBT people in Chechnya who are in danger of detention or death. (EDIT: If you're outside Russia, you can donate through All Out; the Russian LGBT Network website won't accept donations from outside Russia.)

To our friends in Russia who are LGBT and those who are against the mistreatment of anyone because of their sexual orientation: We stand with you. Please stay safe above all else, but if it would be safe for you to post that link, the LGBT Network is asking that as many people as possible publicly share the information that the LGBT Network is ready to help. (They also ask that you do not contact people in Chechnya directly to let them know, as there are reports the authorities are searching people's phones and computers for evidence of sexual orientation.)"

 My brain is mush. Restoring the hard drive and software is still underway. However, system images are the best backups - one stop backup of files and software.  I am using Macrium Reflect - the free version. Grab it folks and start making a weekly backup to an external hard drive and your fear of hard drive death will diminish.

My new hard drive is fucking with me however. After install, it failed the Short Drive test. Then passed. Then failed. Then passed.  The computer's extended service warranty expires in a few days, but the hard drive is warranted for another 30 days. So I will keep using Macrium Reflect to make system images.

The tech was helpful, also blew out 3 years worth of computer dust with my compressed air. To my horror, he gets rated on the entire service experience  - from the moment I made the call to the support center to him installing  the hard drive.  And if he gets anything less than a 9 out of 10, his supervisors will call me to find out why.  Since he did a good job I gave him 10, but the initial phone calls t the support center were not as good. 

Did I say my mind is mush.....

Dr Who started up again on BBC and I like the new companion.
morgandawn: (Deter Hire People With Hooks)
I backup a lot. I backup my backups. But one thing that is hard to backup are your installed software, profiles and configurations. Yes, there are system images but they can be tricky to re-install, especially when a hard drive is replaced and you have to decode whether to do a fresh OS install.

In any event, my hard drive failed the Short Disk Self Test so HP is sending me a new hard drive (with a human to arrive later in the week) to install it on Friday. My 3 year extended warranty dies in....7 days.   I ran  few of my own tests and found only 15 bad sectors on a 1.8 TB drive.  Which makes me worry it is a software corruption and not necessarily just a bad hard drive. Which makes the system images I am laboriously making a bit less attractive. But trying to reinstall years of software with license keys that may or may not work...if I can find them. And if I can find the older versions of the software that go along with them.

The other risk is that when the tech shows up they will crack open the case look at ait and say: Holy Fuck!! and take it all back and I will really be without any computer for weeks. I am not kind to my computers. I know I will one day have to answer to the Great Computer In The Sky for my misdeeds.

In the meantime, don't email me anything important. Expect that I will have forgotten any and all commitments by the time I re-emerge. Feel free to ping me again when I give the all clear sign.

turns out, that though we had a great time at Escapade that we came home with an unwanted guest: a nasty head cold. Both xlorp and and I are in bed coughing, sneezing, dripping and feebly moaning. Not a great way for xlorp to spend the last few days of vacation.
