So let's see....

* HPfGU - OTChatter has exploded into a multidirectional flamefest on slash, sexy stories, homophobia, childrearing, and freedom of speech (and this has nothing to do with RestrictedSection.org's C&D letter).

* Henneth-Annun went from a variant on the dreaded "Was Tolkien Sexist?" discussion (Don't let the Rohirrim catch you abusing a horse's corpse like that!) to rush of hissing about whether or not it's OK to pre-emptively pre-flame those who are not so great with research and logic.

* WIKTT, of all lists, had a flareup about, of all things, morality and pre-marital sex. (Is the Hermione of Anna's "Travelogue" a "slut" for having had sexual relationships with three men over the course of two-and-counting novel-length fics? Hell no - how twisted is that accusation? But somebody thought so.)

Where is Fandom_Wank when you really need it?

Me, I'm just anticipating this upcoming trip - Kitty-Boy and I going to the folks' house in the mountains, via Amtrak. (It's about a 16-hour trip, with gorgeous scenery in the last leg - isolated, roadless, ghost-townned West Virginia landscape visible from neither plane nor highway). We'll be there for a week and it will be great except....

I have four days to find and buy a used laptop. I cannot stand to be cut off, I cannot stand to be one of four people fighting over a computer that I never get to use in any privacy. My parents' house late at night is the best place in the world to write (that is, after all, where I learned how) - provided one has something to write on. I've been needing a newish computer for a while anyhow. I do love my big clunky Mac desktop. No matter that it's older than some prominent HP fanwriters - it runs great. It's like a Toyota of computers that way. I will NOT throw it away or get rid of it or even move it off the desk. But I need something faster, with more memory, and powerful. I don't need something I can download whole movies on or anything like that....just a good little Internet/word processing machine. Wish me luck in the hunt.
