[Tune Currently Playin': |The Beatles' "Long And Winding Road" ('Let It Be....Naked')]

For those who are interested in more than just Python-related things that I have to say, I've decided to pause my Lisa's Memory Palace blog and take up a journal here. Don't let the layout scare you. I'll be talking about everything.

Feel free to pop over, check it out, reply, add me, etc.

Question? [Dec. 28th, 2003|07:29 pm]

Hope everyone had a great holiday filled with Python-goodness.

Does anyone know that other journal server? I know it looked just like LJ but it isn't and it's driving me crazy.

Does anyone who has "American Friends" have the ability to make screen grabs? Alfred Molina plays Oliver Syme, in that, and I need some pix for a site.

I was flipping through the digital cable's On-Demand section, looking at the videos that are always free, and then I went into the cable faves section and BBC and there's like "Monty Python 3 #2-8" listed, Parrot Sketch Not Included and both German episodes. I clicked on a couple and they're all free. I didn't have any idea that they were there, let alone free. Woo!

Videos [Dec. 7th, 2003|09:25 pm]

I made a friend some Python videos and she mentioned some stuff int hem, so I felt the need to watch, last night. I ended up watching the Secret Policeman's Ball and Pleasure At Her Majesty's. Fast forwarding through the non-Python stuff, except I watched the Billy Connolly, things cos he rules.

I adore the backstage stuff in PAHM and the part where Terry is getting ready for the pie sketch, and after the pie sketch when his hair is all wet and whatnot, and then Pete (r Cook) says he wants to get a photo while they're getting dressed, lol! And the Cheese Shop part when John yelled "PINGING FOR THE FYORDS?!" and made Mike laugh, haha! And how the Lumberjack song got totally screwed up, at the end.

But I think the sketch that wins (in my opinion) is the other video where they're doing the Yorkshiremen thing and Terry tries not to laugh (when it looks like he's about to start crying or something, lol!) and he looks away from John, who stares at him, and when he looks back up, he has to hide his face again cos he can't keep a straight face, lol! And I still think that rugby dude was hitting Terry too hard during that "Pick" sketch. Meanie.

I just ran into this. I love the mouse-overs! Terry with blue hair? Not a bad idea!

I was bored, last night, and surfing the depths of the web. FOund some stuff I've seen ages ago and some stuff I haven't. Figured I'd post them.

Cute Michael.

Yummy Michael.

Um, goofy Michael? LOL!

Small, but interesting, Terry page, haha!

Great Terry & John interview.

Same thing, different version.

Yeah, another one.... [Nov. 28th, 2003|11:11 pm]

It's come to my attention that the way I write fanfics isn't liked by some people. I'd rather get this sort of feedback on my own site/board and not have to read it online, but either way. I don't wanna offend people or put them off to fanfic. I write them because I don't get many contributed. It's been ages since the last one was submitted, and I wanted to keep the site a little fresh, so I was writing a few in my own style, which really doesn't have a large plot, or one at all, because I don't have the patience for long stories.

I was under the impression that most liked the stories I put up in the Terry section and I guess I didn't think they'd bother people. If you're under-age, you shouldn't read them, anyway, but if you're of age and just don't dig them, okay.

I'll leave the writing up to the real writers. Granted, I don't really prefer the super-long stories (although I've read some great ones). Maybe I hate staring at the computer reading them for so long. That's not to say I wouldn't read them, anyway.

If you had planned on submitting a story, let it be known that I read all of them. Don't feel like you have to have a really long story with a bunch of plots and stuff. I like the short steamy ones, and I'm sure a lot of other people do, too. But we'll never know unless we find reviews posted on the web, rather than on the site the stories came from, I guess.

*breathes a sigh of relief* At least I don't have to do any more writing. Woo!

A small rant.... [Nov. 28th, 2003|10:11 pm]

Apparently, someone thinks I'm too confrontational about wanting people not to waste my time. I have so many sites, and it NEVER fails that there has to be numerous people who write to me with really stupid, pointless requests/comments/questions and expect me to stop what I'm doing and reply. I don't like ignoring people, and if I do, it's most likely by mistake. Even when I get eMails from people asking something stupid like, "What year did Monty Python start?" I stop what I'm doing, go to Google.com and look it up for them. They can do it just as easily, but they'd rather have someone else do it for them.

So, when I'm sitting here ALL night updating my Python sites and I get these "waste of time" eMails, they add up and they get on my nerves because I have to stop coding my site and mess with the eMails. Worst case scenerio, my computer freezes while doing this and I lose what I was working on. And it's been several times that that's happened. But people don't care.

So, to save time, I put little comments on my sites. Things like, "If you haven't signed the guestbook and you expect me to send you a dozen video files, then don't even bother wasting my time." And if I have an eMail form for ERRORS only, I have to put a thing saying not to waste my time with silly questions and comments. Is that wrong? Is it wrong to think people will use the form just to hit "send" and let it show up in my in-box as a blank eMail? Is it wrong that I see "Error" in my subject heading and think I have an error to fix and it turns out to be something like, "Nice site" that could have been posted on the tagboard (since that's what it's there for)? It wastes my time. It's not MY fault some people can't read where it says "only use this form for errors" and they send other things.

This doesn't mean I expect everyone to leave me alone, not eMail me at all, never send me a message on AIM, etc. I'm not asking people to leave me alone and never talk to me! If I meant that, I would have said "NEVER contact me about anything!"

I don't know why people are so bent about following simple directions and then they act like I'm over-reacting when I try and make things more detailed so they know what to do. If YOU know how to fill out a form and how to ask a question in a normal manner without being a jerk about it, then yay! Way to go for being able to follow directions. But other people need more detailed instructions. Don't take them personally. If you don't need them, skip them. But I can't just keep my simple "eMail errors to me" instructions on dozens of sites because I get tons of mail that are NOT errors when they should be, and it adds up to a lot of wasted time.

If thigns like that scare you off, then so be it. But I make sites for other people to look at and I have the right not to waste time answering stupid questions and having to ban people from posting offending things on my tagboard, etc. I try to keep things working nicely so everyone is comfortable and I get criticized for trying to save myself from people who can't follow directions. Very nice.

This is the stuff that makes making websites NOT fun. And yes, I take things very personally, considering I'd do anything for anyone and people think I'm some rude stand-offish person. Ug.
