make tea. not war. 1

Tea and insomnia.

So yeah.. Although I went to bed at midnight, it'd be a full two and a half hours later before I actually got some sleep. And I woke up at five something and haven't slept since, although a lot of the time was spent in bed trying to sleep.

Am going to be late, but I'll still be going to work today.

Aniki is going to Sweden this weekend, so there'll be no rolling of Katamari this time, but next weekend looks promising. Must remember to ask him to pick up some tea for me.

I found this lovely set of tea icons here, after seeing someone using one of them. I love people who credit in their icon comments.. makes it easy to find the source.

Six days until I have money again. Will have to conserve what little I have so I can pay the import fee on Kumo no mukou in case it arrives before next Wednesday, which is likely. Still no sign of a fansub of it. Starting to hope I get it first.

Stupid.. thing.


I'm annoyed at the tons of sites grabbing recent LJ images.. I'm not sure just how much, but they account for a sizable chunk of my bandwidth used..

So I tried to enable hotlink protection, allowing livejournal of course.

But it doesn't allow wildcards, so the images would only load if the viewer is reading from www.livejournal.com instead of (their username).livejournal.com..

It doesn't seem to have an option to block specific sites. Unless the IP deny manager does that.. I'd prefer to just block each offender as it appears on my referrers.

A fair solution is to put every image I post behind a cut; once it's clicked, the user is on a www page.
Another solution is to lock any post where I post an image, unlocking it later, once it's out of the age range these sites target. Bothersome.

Anyway, turning it off for now. My bandwidth usage so far this month has been 178 megs, my limit is 50000 MB. I'm not exactly worried. =P

Starting to feel the effects of sleep deprivation now. Wish it was friday. Going to take public transportation home. No way I'm walking for an hour and a half in this condition.
