I thought Patterico.com had an interesting post today about copyright law in the internet age, and the irony of how the law currently applies to the works of George Orwell. Go read it.

In other news, Ernesto is coming to visit, and I have the day off work tomorrow. I hope it's stormy enough that TPTB don't feel dumb for putting life on hold for a day, but not stormy enough to do any real damage.

It's amazing how quickly it went from dark skies, pouring rain, and howling winds to a bright, sunshiney day.

Anyway, the storm (Hurricane Wilma) has passed, and we only got the edge of it anyway. So it's all good. :)

To the original ORX:

Happy belated birthday, [livejournal.com profile] firoza!!!

I have a good excuse for my lateness: Hurricane Dennis ate my internet connection. I'm getting my fix at a friend's house right now. Comcast has NO IDEA when our connection will be working again. *cries* Of all weeks to have internet issues. So anyway, if you are missing my online presence, you'll know why.

I hope the OCers are enjoying the 50th thread. I may not get a chance to post on it, but I enjoyed reading the scavenger hunt answers that I had seen before I lost my connection. I probably won't get around to posting scores until after HBP comes out, but since we are all likely to have other things on our minds soon anyway (new canon!!!), I hope that can be overlooked.

I also still owe my HBP predictions. I will get them up before the book comes out. Um, tomorrow night, I hope. *prays for Comcast to get their act together*

One more announcement: I have decided to place myself firmly in the spoiler virgin category for HBP. When, a few days ago, the truly spoilery spoilers started to surface, I made up my mind that since there are so few days to go, I might as well save myself for the real thing. I did see some of the very light spoilers from the likes of Jim Dale and Arthur Levine that we got previously, but otherwise, I am pure, and intend to remain pure. I ask my friends list to to do what you can reasonbly be expected to do to help me in that endeavor. Thanks. :)

Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] garybeary!!!

In other news, hurricane Dennis is headed for the Gulf Coast not too far west of Tallahassee. It's close enough that we're getting some pretty nasty storms, but it's far enough that I don't think we're in any real danger. Pensacola, however, where a few folks I care about live, is probably in for a beating, and they are still weakened by damage from Ivan, so...those who are so inclined, please be praying. I will be.
