I was shooting publicity shots today, for a house and gardens tour that benefits the local historical society. As anyone who's been round here a while has probably noticed, I'm not really a professional photographer--I can shoot well enough to illustrate an article, and that's about it. Fortunately, that's all that the tour's publicity needs call for, so I end up volunteering, when I'm able--my mother does their publicity, and it means that I get to see some really stunning houses and gardens.

These are a couple of welded sculptures that I thought were particularly nifty. You might be particularly interested, maybe, [livejournal.com profile] wsr?

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request a drabble or a sketch of any pairing/character (from one of my usual fandoms). In return, those ten people have to post this in their journals, regardless of their ability level.

It may be a couple of weeks before I can actually fulfill requests, I'm afraid.

ETA: For the purposes of this, let's say that my fandoms = Harry Potter, the Domination of the Draka (or at least silly versions thereof), Ranma, Neon Genesis Evangelion, or any of my original universes. I've never written in them, but I reckon I could manage LOTR, Narnia, Barsoom, or Diana Wynne Jones (Dark Lord of Derkholm-verse or Magid-verse) at a pinch. If there's something else you'd like, and you think there's a chance I'm acquainted with it, feel free to ask.

If you ask for Gor, you will receive something along the lines of:
"Once the dust settled, everyone agreed that Gor was a better place under the rule of Archon Kasumi Von Shrakenberg. The surviving Men of Gor quickly discovered that happy slave girls with safewords were a lot more fun to be around than terrorised frightened slave girls and that being dommed by cute genetically engineered posthuman girls made for a refreshing change of pace. And the Caste of Warriors were delighted to finally come out of the closet."

Just found this, clicking through links. Confirmation is here.

I'm not sure why it bothers me, really. I've not updated my Geocities site in a couple of years. I shouldn't really care. But... somehow it makes be a bit unhappy. Not deeply sad, but... unhappy.

Tá méarclár nua agamsa!

I've discovered that there's a Windows Keyboard editor thingy, so I've got my own custom keyboard setting, now. American double quote mark and @ sign positioning, but with the Irish setting where control + alt + a gets me á, etc. Which, for some strange reason, is the way I like it, so.

I used to accomplish the same thing in Word Perfect with a WP-specific keyboard; this is actually slightly better.

Hmm, I'm using this about a month now, and amn't sure what I think of it. I'm sure I like it better than Micro$oft Word, but I'm not finding it as useful for some things than the old Word Perfect (8.0, or something like that) that I used to use.

1) There doesn't seem to be a way to modify the keyboard to give me the fadas I need. I'm sure the insert menu is fine if all you need's a name or two, but when every third word has an acute it doesn't cut it. Calling up all the small vowels with fadas in Windows Character Map, pasting in and deleting the ones that aren't needed is easier, but not much.

2) The html it produces is much harder to decrapify for posting on LJ and things like that than WordPerfect's html, which I could clean up in notepad in a few minutes using search and replace.

Is anyone else using this software, and know of solutions for any of these problems?

Maybe I need to find the Word Perfect CD and install it, Windows 95 software on Vista or not.
