Friends aren't people who don't piss you off. They're people who are worth forgiving over and over.

    Happy Wormhole X-Treme! Xmas

    Happy Christmas, everypony!

    I'll admit that I fell off the writing wagon a bit after I exhausted my buffer of completed chapters for Stargate Tail. I'm planning to post Chapter 9 soon, though, so that's a Christmas present from me to all of you. :twilightsmile:

    Antacids and Nightmares

    Whoops! I forgot to post chapter eight this afternoon, sorry for being late! :twilightblush:

    While I've got you here, I'll let you know that chapter eight marks the end of my buffer of already-complete chapters that allowed me to post a new chapter every week. While chapter nine is partially written, I can't guarantee I'll finish it by next Friday.

    Writing storm!

    I'm currently on vacation, so I've got extra time to write this week. I'm on chapter 8 right now, and I'm hoping to extend my buffer a bit so that I can keep the 1/week updates going on longer.

    Of course, I've also got Labor Day off work. :scootangel:

Stupid Windows · 9:44pm Jul 15th, 2013

As part of a job application, I've been instructed to create a program that automates an action using the WatiN library, which works with both Internet Explorer and Firefox. Using Firefox isn't required for the assignment, but I'm going the extra mile and detecting whether FFX is the user's default browser, and launching that if so.

Of course, I need to test with both browsers, and FFX is my default, so I figured I'd start with that. It turns out in order to use WatiN with FFX you need a specific extension to FFX, so I put it off and started testing with IE. I started getting errors, and I scratched my head.

Then I realized that eons ago I'd uninstalled Internet Explorer from my computer. :facehoof:

Stupid Windows. grumble grumble grumble.

Hah, now that's unlucky.

But best of luck to you, hopefully you get the job.

Speaking of facepalm-worthy realizations, I only just realized that your avatar is a ponified Magic card. :facehoof:

In any case, good luck with the application!

Actually, it was a belated birthday gift from a friend: a ponified version of me, playing with some Magic cards. The original was hand-drawn with colored pencils, and I created a vector art version of it for my avatar.

I made a blog post about it. :moustache:

Edit: Also, I'm nearing the halfway mark on the romp through the Final Retreat in chapter 17 of MLE. Go me.
