I’m not going to say very much about the recent Livejournal purge save to say that the group that bugged LJ into locking all those accounts is yet another symptom of the crap that our society is allowing to float to the surface.
I’m pretty tolerant of other people’s beliefs, and just as intolerant of pedos, etc., but to have a single group contact them and then to have them panic and yank a buttload of accounts based on Google search words is beyond stupid. The apology for these actions was also pathetic.
However the people pressuring them into this are worse - much worse. Look up the links on their sites and so forth - I won’t post them here - and you’ll find some incredibly bigoted stuff. *sigh* We already have enough bigoted ignorant people in this world why are we letting them create more?
On a happier note I got my bike carbs synced last night. The gauges worked like a charm. Now all I have to do is adjust the mixtures properly and the bike will be done engine-wise. Well except for maintenance like oil changes and such. (I haven’t heard anything from the guy about the spin-on oil filter adapter for my bike yet. I need to keep on top of that.)
So since I’m home tomorrow I’ll try and colortune it then. I should be able to do that without too much trouble. Putting a fan in front of the bike worked perfectly to keep it cool at idle.
And that’s another thing - the bike runs a LOT cooler now that I synced the carbs. It performs significantly differently too.
The first lyrics to “Enohana Bathouse Blues” popped into my head this morning. I think once I set those down I’ll be able to write the rest fairly quickly. If I manage it it will be the first time that I write something that isn’t based off of anybody else’s music really. But then generic blues is pretty easy to run with in the first place...
Talked with my wife about getting a new laptop and her issue is that we have a lot of computers around already. It’s more of a space issue than anything so I can see where she’s coming from.
