Hi. I guess I don't use this often enough. I probably say something like that every time I do, even.

Andrea was telling me that people are having hosting issues for their icons or other images, and that Photobucket is basically holding things hostage for high prices. Ah, commerce.

Anyway, you'll note she isn't having that problem on the [info]dreacons journal (shameless plug).

That's because I host them for her. I'm not using my space and bandwidth for too much these days, so I'm willing to help out a few others that could use a hand (basically, do I like and trust you?). Limited to a few people, because I can't just burn up space I'm paying for, but I do have this overwhelming sense of duty to try and help people who need a hand where I can.

Otherwise, if you're interested in knowing what I do or how I'm doing it, let me direct you to the place where I get my hosting from: http://www.amscomputer.com/hosting.php
I've been with them for probably 20 years now and I have no regrets - amazing and quick customer service and the prices are nearly impossible to beat for what you get.

Likewise, if you need/want the code I used to make this page (http://bajah.com/dreacons) to generate icon tables for you, I'm happy to share that as well. You essentially FTP in, upload your icons to a folder that's in the htmlroot, select how many columns you want, and it spits it all out pronto.

Feel free to share this info out to anyone else you think may benefit from it.

<3,
Matt

Dunmoody holds are open!

May. 12th, 2015

I've been real busy trying to get things ready, sorry if I've been quiet!

But I've decided that I'm going to open holds tomorrow, 10pm EST. That's 5/13, 10pm EST. Holds will be open, if you're interested in playing around in Dunmoody. No one's asked me questions, so I'm assuming it's all super clear!

Remember, that's http://dunmoddy.insanejournal.com - read the FAQ and start thinking about what you're interested in. I plan to have game launch on 6/1, but if I get in a significant amount of apps before then, I may launch a little early. Holds that are made tomorrow are good until game launch, fyi, beyond the standard week mentioned in the hold rules.

If you will not be around! Please get someone to make your hold for you, I will allow proxy holds, though I ask you to confirm that proxy within 24 hours.

Thanks! <3

So uh. Hay. Is this thing on? Do I still have people watching this?

I'm pretty horrible at even checking this thing, Facebook has kinda turned into my Place2Go.

Anyway. I've been feeling super creative lately. And I miss HP a little bit. But I also like the general idea of panfandoms. And I also had a ton of material that I built for New Salem that makes for a great skeleton.

Sooooo.. I'm starting a new game. BUT, it's not a huge omg plot game or intended to be the Next Big Thing. It's a timeline game. I'll run it for 6 months. I have no current plans to take it beyond that. If it goes well, maybe I'll do another one! But it's meant to be some summer fun, give people a shiny distraction for a little while, and basically be a NO DRAMA FUNZONE.

I'm hoping you'll like to join me. Do you have a bit of an HP itch too? How about HP with a slight panfandom twist? Check out the FAQ, you'll see what I mean.

Ask me questions here if you'd like. Interested? Let's talk. There's still a bit that's under construction, so I'm still working on it. But most of it's up now. I plan on launching it probably by/before the end of the month, maybe slightly sooner, but I'm opening up holds the week before, so that people can start getting characters in.

No obligations, friends! But feel free to do word of mouth if you want to lure in more people. Six month game! Let's make it happen!

You probably want a link, hm? Thanks for reading this far. Here you go!

In honor of the closing of my beloved [info]daysthatwere and in celebration of the opening of my new hotness [info]thedoorway, I am making this post.

Until I get tired of doing so, and at least through the holidays - I will be doing a video meme. Ask me something, request something, whatever! The only rules are try to limit yourself to one request at a time and no nudity. :)


Also, friends only! If I'm not your friend, add me. Then we'll talk!

Nov. 1st, 2012

This is the first time I've logged into my personal IJ journal in like 3 months. Time, where have you gone?

Apr. 20th, 2012

for [info]daysthatwere

Anyone have a dark-haired male sibling that finished Hogwarts around 1980 that I can name Barry?

Otherwise I make something up. *nod*

This one's for Whit:

A distraction from training...

I'll join in!

PICK 1 OF MY RP CHARACTERS (PAST OR PRESENT!) & I WILL TELL YOU:
1. Why I played this character.
2. My favourite moment in canon for this character OR my favourite moment in the game for this character.
3. My favourite piece of headcanon for this character.
4. Something about this character which makes me laugh.
5. Something about this character which makes me cry. I've never been even close to tears, sorry, but I'll try to find something about them that makes me frowny face for them.
6. One of your characters that I think would get along well with them.

Stripping!

I posted this in the NS OOC comm, but I don't know how many people are still checking that since the game is officially closed as of tomorrow.

I should note this button will only work on character journals for [info]newsalem.

Since some of you may want to re-use your journals in future games, I thought maybe we could save you the trouble of having to go in and uncheck all those friend journals you had for NS. So here's a "Friend Stripper" that, as the name suggests, strips all the friends from your journal.

Figuratively. Not literally. Though I'm sure we can find naked pics of lots of these PBs....

Button Button Button )

Granted, it can work for journals that used to be in NS, but aren't anymore, too. haha

Jan. 27th, 2012

Maybe..

Maybe I'm easily amused today, but I just about lost my shit when I read this:

I seriously lol'd.

SWTOR Fun

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=cNDaG7YqaV4

(I'd embed it but I'm on a conference call at the moment and will hit it up later when I figure out the code for IJ)

Even if you haven't tried playing Star Wars: The Old Republic, this is still hilarious. The old school Starfox voiceover at the beginning is dead on, since I've already said in the past that the space battles reminded me of Starfox. hah

Movember!

So, Movember is half over!

My page is here, and I'm doing weekly pics to show the progress. Feel free to donate! You get a tax write-off receipt for charity (so you get it back, right? Not sure how that works), and it's for a good cause! Support your mens!

Plus I'm #3 on the team, that's gotta change.

ANYWAY! No pressure. I don't have anything I can offer as incentive to donate, without feeling like I'm holding something back from the people who really can't afford to donate. With Christmas around the corner and school loans and NEW BABIES and every other crazy expense out there, I totally get it if you're poor. Hell, I'm like that half the time myself. But I'll give you a great big hug if and when I see you next :)

Finally managed to get Pottermore to let me do more than login without crapping out on me. Collected a BUNCH of stuff and just got past the sorting ceremony.

Wand Info! )

And since my first and most played HPRPG character is Draco Malfoy, I suppose there's no surprise that I ended up in SLYTHERIN. And I don't even remember picking any options that said 'Slytherin' to me during the quiz, either.

Sorting )

Sep. 12th, 2011

Well, I was gonna come here and say HAY I FINALLY GOT INTO POTTERMORE...

But it looks like everyone else is finally in, too. Thunder has been stolen.

However, I haven't been able to really even log in due to dinner, cranky baby, trying to set up new computer, phone calls with Dell, phone call with mom, and just general site being down or too busy to let me log in.

I managed to read Moment 1! /flex


Edit: BladeWizard35's me!

Jul. 16th, 2011

All right. Laundry's started, dinner's made and ate, kid's in the bath, wife is successfully napped, now I can sit and record my thoughts.

I haven't read through anyone else's thoughts yet, so I may have some repeats - apologies if so, but that means we agree!

Spoilers, of course.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JAMIE aka [info]moonshoes!

May. 26th, 2011

Yeah!

Nothing like a Facebook Wall to make you feel popular. Take that, High School!

May. 18th, 2011

oh hay, notifications are down. We should start a betting pool, trying to guess what'll be down the next day.

May. 3rd, 2011

Wait, and Hope.

Thanks to the mods and the players of [info]waitandhope for a fun ride, a great experience, new friends, reuniting with old friends, and after 9 months of work, pain, sweat, and tears, the delivery was better than I could have ever suspected <3
