Since around 6pm yesterday I can't access LJ. This makes me a sad puppy.

No seriously, I know everything is running for everyone else. I checked in different browsers, I even quickly disabled my firewall and antivir, to see if they had blocked sth. I restarted my browser, my computer and flushed the cache.

Google tells me, there are others out there with the same problem, though not specific to LJ. Sadly nobody ever had a solution, at some point sites just start working again and that might take weeks.

So, yeah, if I'm not answering comments... this is why.

tell me what I missed in the past... 16 hours? (but remember, this isn't flocked)

This is my recast-spam for [livejournal.com profile] legendland and I went for the crack-route. Casting was fun, making this spam, not so much (except for one) and thus I didn't spend much time on it. Aaaanyway, it's so bad, that I won't even put it on [livejournal.com profile] stormfronticons.

crack )

And now you may tell me how horrified you are.

[livejournal.com profile] scifiland's second phase just started, so come and join the madness! And, if you wanna be cool, come and join Team Villain, cause we have bakeoffs. Or at least I decided we did. We have sharkicorns with lasereyes anyway.

I also made sth rather random today, and that is Photoshop-swatches with colours that remind me of iconmakers from my flist.

check all ten out here

quick pimp

Just a reminder, if anyone wants to bid on the icons I'm offering for gulf aid now, the voting ends at midnight PST today - so in about 7 1/2hours.

my thread is here

Currently the highest bid is 10$.
pinksocks: (Default)
Yes, it's time for a charity auction again.

I am offering 20 icons (or a picspam) here.

Please bid, it's for a good cause. And if you want 20 Karl Urban or Matthew Fox icons... well, that'd be doable. :D

[livejournal.com profile] lemonpunch is hosting an icon-fest at her LJ and it starts tonight/tomorrow. Go check it out!
pinksocks: (BBT - brainsplode)
As I said earlier there's a big bang alt challenge going on at [livejournal.com profile] jjverse and, while I'm gonna make a lot of icons for that, I also thought it'd be nice to make some picspams. So I made a picspam of the Star Trek XI cast.

You can find it here.

yes, I know, I technically never made those requests from... 2008. But, hey, this time I might... *cough*

So as part of [livejournal.com profile] jjverse's big bang alt challenge I wanna do a lot of icons (not 100, I shall do some picspams as well). And I thought I'd ask you for caps/pictures. So if you want an icon from LOST or Star Trek XI just link me to one or two screencaps (or stills), and I'll see what I can do. :)

No LOST spoilers, obviously.

Nearly a year with [livejournal.com profile] whedonland and now I'm finally getting into it. oh well.

I just joined Team Trek on [livejournal.com profile] jjverse and you should do the same!

Join [livejournal.com profile] jjverse!

Speaking of Trek-stuff... currently Karl Urban is losing in the pretty man poll... wth?

And Icy apparently needs some tiebreaking votes over at [livejournal.com profile] fs_lims, so please consider voting here

so, last night my computer was ok. and I did nothing but watch some vid with Kat and browse a bit and aaaargh. then we had nightmares and wanted to watch sth fluffy, so I tried to switch on my com again and.....



we tried every way to start the com, that was on offer. and nada. so then I tried to repair my win with my old XP CD (which is... erm... not that legal) but it asked me for some password, which I couldn't remember entering... and then we went to bed. and then I dreamed everything would be ok in the morning. but it wasn't... but at least I got the win-install to start. except it always shuts off after 50%. then I checked the CD and... yup.. totally scratched, amazed it did this much.

so now I am as fucked as one can be, without another person at hand. basically I'm hoping someone still has a cracked xp around. *lesigh* i actually checked into linux stuff here (am at uni) but i don't get it and installing something you don't get on a basically fucked pc... not such a good idea. not the worst idea i ever had but... nope. also i'd have to figure out how to get ps and everything working on that stuff and while googling it basically says copy stuff from the windows folder... errr... i doubt it. i am fuuuucked. (yes there is the option of a new pc with a new win and everything... do you want to buy it for me). hm, actually checked ubuntu and that looks nice. and better than the babble on the uni-site, which is clearly aimed at it-students and people too pretentious to have ever used windows. hm obviously i can't burn cds at uni. ugh. (yes, i actually brought one with me, just in case). shall at least try to dl it to my mp3played/usbstick. ttyl.


update: ok, so before I left for uni I had restarted the win-install, but this time not as a repair, but as a normal install (over the old windows, without any formatting). By then it was 2pm, and I knew the uni-it-center was only open until 3ish (turns out 3.30, but same same), so I just left that running, and checked everything I could there. meant to actually burn ubuntu, or at least dl it there, but that wasnt possibly at the terminals i was at (couldn't even put it on my usb, even though there were usb-slots... *sigh*).
but then i got home and tada - it was past those 50% and asking me for my serial. which i didn't have. but then i finally remembered, that there was probably a file with serial on the actual cd. for all the good that did me. anyway, so i then checked every corner for the old xp-home cd of my old computer, cause that serial was actuallly on the casing of said old pc. which i had thankfully not yet thrown away. while uncovering the serial, i also found out that a spider had made the move with me. i hope nobody heard the pathetic sound i made, when i discovered that. ^^

anyways, so i managed to install the old xp home (which doesn't like the new pc, and only allows me to use xp for 30days, which is why i didn't use it in the first place). anyway, that all worked out fine, and i now have the serials for both xp versions in red marker on the cds. while in xp hope i also dled ubuntu and managed to burn it to a cd. well done me, cause with all the servicepacks missing everything only worked in slomo.

then i thought to myself... you could install xp now, or just put ubuntu in. so i did the latter. but, even though during the install i was asked if i wanted to have ubuntu next to win on the drive, that all didn't really work. which isn't ideal. then i was told many many formatting options, that frankly scared me. so i hit stop.

now i'm running ubuntu from the cd, and it's all quite foreign, but shiny, and i'm mostly happy that i get online again.

shall test if sound works. yeah, no plugins. well, to be expected i suppose. oh well. suppose i better try to install normal xp again anyway. but, hey, at least i can get online.

So, [livejournal.com profile] zombres gave me a prompt for that 'cast your own TV-Show/movie' meme a long long looong time ago and I ended up doing some casting but never came up with a proper story. I still don't have one, but I felt in need of a picspam of pretty people, so I shall attempt to at least give you some hints to what it was supposed to be. Feel free to come up with your own stories.

to refresh you, the meme (and feel free to actually ask for a prompt, if you feel the need to)
1. Comment to this post with "I surrender!" and I'll assign you the basis of some tv show idea. (Science fiction show, medical drama, criminal procedure, etc...)
2. Create a cast of characters, including the actors who'd play them
3. Add in any actor photos, character bios and show synopsis that you want.
4. Post to your own journal.

The prompt was: Steampunk Magicians

aaaand so I landed at:

So, if you like land-coms or are just a fan of LotR, come join us at [livejournal.com profile] themiddleearth and join Team Lórien, cause I mod that one. (be afraid...)

If you don't know, yet, what a land-com is, it's simple. It's basically your ultimate fandom-challenge-community. You join one of four teams (ala Hogwarts-houses) (well, you join Team Lórien, because you love me) and then you try to score points for your team and have fun doing it! There are graphic challenges and writing challenges and luck games, if you're too exhausted to create sth of your own. And there's also lots of lovely people to meet, or there will be once there are more members than mods. ^^


oh, also, vote here please. It's the finale, and I'm still there (hard to believe, I know), woohoo!
