I just dropped a sick amount of money on a new bed and a new television. This thing is scary — it has two tuners for two channel picture in picture, two normal A/V inputs, an S-Video input and a component input. There’s even an A/V out to simplify my VCR issues. 32 inches. Wow. Damned expensive, though.
MediaMiner’s admin got back from vacation, and handled things just as I was hoping — withdrawl of material, a swift apology and high professionalism. That’s all it takes to reduce me from ‘Ready to slit your throat’ to ‘Okay, fine’. I don’t think they handled contacting the authors very well at all, however; the fact that my contact information is out there in nothing less than shiny blinking neon letters and I never heard this is proof. I won’t be dealing with them in the future, needless to say. I still recommend that if you’ve ever posted to RAAC, you check to see if your stuff is on there and ask for removal if you’d like it removed.
I’m heavy into transition time here. Apartment’s being set up. Shopping is being done. Stuff is happening. Creative projects are on hold until I can breathe. But it’s not as harrowing or agonizing as I had dreaded, just mildly annoying and very hectic. I-and-I’s cool.
