Hopping on the meme bandwagon (seen with azhure):
What do you want from me in 2006?

In other news: Tragic tidings from WV - 12 of 13 miners found dead.
Edit, 09:55 CST - An interesting phenomenon: I happened to be awake from 0400 CST, when I first noticed the reversal, to 0630, when I went to sleep, and reloaded the 3000-4000 Google News articles. It was interesting to watch them go from 75% "all but one alive" to 75% "all but one dead". When I went to bed there were still 25% that hadn't retracted, and of course a lot of the print ones had already gone to press.

I wonder when it becomes too late to stop the presses: exactly what point during printing, percentagewise, and what time of AM that is for a morning paper, given modern printing technology.

Edit, 10:00 CST - In any case, it's definitely much easier to retract and correct online publications. I posted the above one-liner and link to CNN hoping it would alert some, but people still check their print media first as often as they trust an aggregator such as Google News - which, as we see above, is only consensus reporting.

The Indy Star actually posted this explanation.

The Chicago Tribune story was the most detailed and complete I had read as of 06:00.

Edit, 10:10 CST - Cross-posted to infojunkies, the primary LJ news aggregator community.

Eleventh Day of Christmas, following my personal LJ tradition (started in 2003):
"God, We've Known Such Grief and Anger"
Words: Carolyn W. Gillette (2002)
Music: "In Babilon" (c. 1710), arranged by Julius Röntgen (1906)

Re: Wot kinda fanfic?

Any kind of fanfic. I don't know if I've ever seen you write any. It could be long, short, a vignette, or something about Archer and his dog. Heeeeee.

Seriously, write something...that's not serious. Write a funny fic. :D

Re: Coming soon: The Tale of Wurfrufr
:-P :-P

Now *I* want to write a story totally from Porthos' POV... *facepalm*

Pets of the stars
Let's do an anthology!

Porthos, Hedwig, etc.

All done from their points of view...

Re: Pets of the stars
Oh gosh...

Except, Hedwig isn't in a space fandom.
Jan. 4th, 2006 09:42 pm (UTC)
Hedwig Potter and the Voyage of the Starship Enterprise
Well, yeah - I couldn't think of another space fandom pet off the top of my head. :-P

Oh, there's Spot, Data's cat on ST:TNG.
Did Naomi Wildman on Voyager have a pet?
How about Will Robinson from Lost in Space?
Phlox on Enterprise has a ton, I know, but I don't think their names are given.
I suppose Clark Kent's Krypto should count, and there are other extraterrestrial supers.

Jan. 4th, 2006 09:55 pm (UTC)
ignore the last one
Gah I hit reply too fast!

Heeee Spot.
(paraphrasing, sadly)
Data: "And you must feed him this supplement twice a day, and give him water."
Worf: *does not look happy*
Data: "And you must pet him. And tell him he is a good cat, a nice cat--"
Worf: "I will *feed* him."
Data: *backs off slowly*

Don't think Naomi did; don't think anyone on Voyager did.

Noooo idea about Will Robinson... Dude, Phlox's are more like... lab subjects...except he doesn't use them for experiments. Sort of.

Dude, Clark named his retriever Krypto??? Or is that someone else's dog?

You don't mean that
I have a P5-133 with 64Mb RAM that works fine, but I wouldn't "use it to hit a dog", as we say in Chinese.

Re: You don't mean that
You underestimate my laptop hunger. What I *want* is wireless networking. But what I'll *take* is anything I can put ubuntu on. If its free / under $100 / $200 / $300 / $400, I can't be picky.
