[A Gentle/Good perseverence shiny Bulbasaur.]
SPEAKING OF WHICH. Since I seem to be ending up with fandom/80s and 90s animation names (other than Luke, 2003 rebel that he is), I am thinking Fudoh? His hidden power is Ground, too. Sadly his stats are crap as he did not take after his Ditto parent…but I still need something with with some decent defenses for my failed shiny Pokemon battle tower attempts. When you like a lot of fire and flying types, bad things happen whenever rock types show up.
(Does anybody need a Bulbasaur with Power Whip? Female starters are rare so I’ve been putting the spare girl ones on the GTS, but I still have too many and feel bad just releasing them all. Or Eevees with Wish/Protect, likely to have max attack and possibly other stats.)

That was a…fun adventure to get working. Say hi to the internet, Snuggles!
(Just backing up saves, I’m not going to edit them. That’d take all the fun out of my shiny egg quests ;p. Does anyone have tips for getting Desmume to not lag all over the place? I only want to take screenshots with it, but it’s frustrating. I’ve tried the different framerate things, no dice.)
I got the image uploads to work and go in a custom directory! I’d missed one of the things that needed to be owned by web before.
I used to do fancy things to all my photos, but as evidenced by the fact these were taken with old!camera and its complete failure at anything nighttime, that leads to me sitting around on them forever. I still have unuploaded pictures back to 2004…
I can find a ton of crossposting plugins (not what I want for this).
I can find a number of “display latest Tumblr posts in widget” plugins (closer, but not quite there).
I can find a ton of Twitter plugins that will display only tweets tagged [tags of choice] (right idea, wrong service).
So why can’t I find a plugin that will show the latest [number] Tumblr posts I’ve made tagged [tags of choice]…?
THERE’S GOT TO BE ONE SOMEWHERE. Maybe if I weren’t, you know, incompetent with PHP I could mod one of the almost ones.
(Not looking for importing, either, I’m looking for displays latest posts without actually putting them on Wordpress. Ideally, it’d be just an excerpt and then a link to the post…)
Gmail, why are you formatting
my messages on really short
lines with hard linebreaks? That’s
really quite hard to read
Ah. Apparently it does this automatically with anything plain text because standards, which isn’t Gmail’s fault…except for the part where I can’t turn on rich text and stop that happening without using the (utterly unusable to me) regular mail interface instead of the HTML version.
Is there a way around this that I’m missing…?
I JUST WANTED TO WATCH TV
Dear people talking about disability: Stop framing success in terms of how normal you can make us look.
What about how we feel about how we’re doing, regardless of whether that’s by means that look different or weird?
Extra cranky for parents who bend over backwards to hide the idea of disability from their children. Yeah, you mean well, but the real end result of that sort of “if we don’t talk about it, they’ll not feel bad about it” approach is that when they are dealing with something they can clearly tell is not quote-unquote normal and they do need help…well. For one, they’re probably not going to feel they can come to you.
For two, they’re left without words for it (other than things people will have called them, or things like “broken” or “there’s something wrong with me”—or, alternatively, they’ve been taught that having labels is a Bad Thing and feel ashamed to claim one) or shared community for it (“there’s something wrong with me and I’m the only one”) or any experience in articulating what assistance they need.
Zoids that look unexpectedly nice together:
Fire Fox and Siegdober. Zeekdober. Whatever. (Somewhere, German is sad.)
They’re not even the same red (Siegdober’s is more glossy and the tiniest bit more orange), and Fire Fox has dark brown, not black, but…somehow they look like they should be friends despite being very differing sorts of Empire. They’re definitely up to something.

Finding very 90s fansites full of stuff from zines is really awesome.
Except now I’m all nostalgic for some aspects of older fandom (good lord do I miss proper discussion groups/forums and things being less…splintered than they are now), and sad I mostly missed out on zines—they don’t seem to be as much of a Thing any more, and there’s certainly not enough fandom for most things I like for one anyway.
yes yes I’ll get that Zoids anthology template done and uploaded soon
I HAVEN’T FORGOTTEN
I’m just lost in the 90s and other animation right now.

Not sure if friends…or trying to eat Van.
