  1. Introverts, how is your day?

    But how was that tiny lamb able to deal with knee-deep snow?

    So -- tell us about it?

    That's what it looks like to me -- crossed with a Pegasus.
  5. How can I get my computer (or phone) to...?

    I finally got up the courage to open one of those notifications, and when I closed that tab the notification was no longer in the list. Thus encouraged, I boldly opened each of the rest, and that cleared the entire line. Now all I need is a way to keep them from sending more!

    Care to give us a (mercifully brief) sample from those few pages?

    There's a discussion over in the Side Effects thread.
  8. I agree with both of you, and suspect that even though the interview was nominally about the TJLC phenomenon, Mr. Freeman is also well aware of the "Freebatchers," to which he has every right to react on a personal basis. Nobody likes being called something that they most definitely are not, regardless of whether it's OK to be that. (Back before I was a vegetarian, people used to assume I was one -- no idea why -- and that assumption would bug the heck out of me.) While the TJLCers claim that anyone who disagrees with them is homophobic (and even if there's a bit if truth to that), I think the main thing people are objecting to is the "entitlement" attitude, something that, as far as I can see, is totally missing from other ships, both gay and straight. The Sherlolly crowd seems very earnest, but they also seem hopeful or wistful rather than demanding. Instead of demanding that Moftiss write the show to their specifications, they quietly write their fan fiction. At this point I should say that I believe most Johnlockers are also content with their fan fiction. It's the ones who've turned it into a political movement that I'm talking about.

    As Tobe just said on another thread, I can see why people could have had those expectations, and the Moftisses shouldn't be surprised that many of those people didn't believe their denials, considering that they lied about other things in order to "surprise" us. But blaming the actors? Hardly seems either fair or lgical.

    Are they the same old rants?

    Nope, not me. Thanks!
  13. How can I get my computer (or phone) to...?

    I've been happily using my Android phone for a year or two, and recently downloaded a couple of game apps, Solitaire and Sudoku. Well, to be honest, Alex the IT Guy did it for me. Those were great, so I asked him to download Tetris and Spell Tower for me too, and that's when a minor problem arose. I keep getting notifications -- same sort of thing that happens when I get a text message, except that I keep getting these things, apparently ads for new revs and such. At least the text notifications go away when I read the message. These new things just keep building up. The whole top line of the screen is full of the little icons. I don't want the notifications in the first place, and I have no idea how to get rid of them. Help!!!

    Do you know for certain that they don't choose their own outfits?

    I generally figure that the driver is not only doing the driving, they're also paying for the wear and tear on their car, so I'll pay for the gas. Most cars nowadays get around 30 miles to the gallon at 60 mph on highways. In city traffic they don't go as fast, but they use more gas per mile, so I figure two gallons (8 liters?) per hour, regardless. And if there are other passengers, we can split the cost. I rarely wash my car either, but we lived for a couple of years in southern California, where it does not rain from April to October. We drove out there in late December, and by the time we got through the desert to LA, it looked like we had a brown car. Fortunately, we had given our old house one last quick cleaning after the moving van left, so I had a bucket and some rags in the car, and was able to get the poor thing looking presentable even before we moved out of the motel and into an apartment.
