I was going to wait until I had time to go into Seventeen and get the textual backup for everything I'm saying, but I have gradually come to realize that if I wait until then it will never happen until possibly after Yuletide which isn't acceptable. Also I guess it would be even longer than it actually is. So. Here you go.

But it's pricey! The total cost was going to be near $2000, with a six-day-a-week commitment.

Then I realized I can just pay for the labs, which is the only part I really want anyway, and that's a third the price and a one-day-a-week commitment.

She said she'll consider it.

It's not necessary for her to take a Regents in August (fully nine months earlier than any of her peers...), I'd just like her to.

Also, finally figured out what cake I'll bake tomorrow for her birthday. How does rosewater and ginger sound? If I ever find my rosewater, I mean. It's because I read this article, but anyway, it's a good idea. I've been rocking the rosewater lassi lately that I get at the supermarket.

Have arrived in BrisVegas (as it is known by many) for eResearchAustralasia, and am staying at the pretty acceptable Spring Hill Mews. The first day's arrival was spoilt by illness, I suspect because some fucker sneezed on me on the plane on the way over. Still, by the end of the second day I was feeling better and arrived for the conference welcome reception and then joined a group for dinner at Mucho Mexicano. Whilst it is early days yet the conference itself has been so-so from the first few speakers. Leeanne Enoch gave a good introduction to the conference, especially for a politician, and David De Roure's presentation on Ada Lovelace and computer-generated music was quite enjoyable. I suspect for the rest of this afternoon I'll be staying in the Advancecd Computing stream.

Before leaving Melbourne, I did have the opportunity to run a session of Eclipse Phase finishing the Chain Reaction scenario, which will then be followed up with the subsequent related scenarios. In addition, Karl B., has assisted with the final editing of Papers & Paychecks although, alas, I still haven't managed to track down Tim Kask to do the foreword. On my return to Melbourne it looks like I'll finally get around to seeing Blade Runner 2049, given that I am "a bit" of a fan of the original.

Prior to departure I also managed to see Peter Hook and the Light, at their final Melbourne concert, performing Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures and Closer (after selling my previous tickets to [livejournal.com profile] fustian_. It was a great concert and in next couple of days I hope to have a review written for [personal profile] reddragdiva for Rocknerd, which I'm sure he's looking forward to. Should also mention that I'm half-way through writing an article about that strange alliance that's grown between the Democratic Socialists of America and the Juggalos.

Dear god, that street has a lot of cats in varying degrees of feralness. One house with a large lot has at least a dozen hanging out there at any given point of time. Another house with a small lot has its own colony, at least three adult queens and two litters of kittens at distinctly different ages. Somebody is feeding these cats, but they're not doing anything to reduce the surplus population.

I kinda want to TNR the lot of them. Or, rather, I want to T them, have a rescue organization handle the N, and then give them an address to R them back to. (Except the kittens, who'd get rehomed, not returned.) With good timing the whole process wouldn't take much longer than a few weeks. But there's the iffy issue of setting up traps on other people's property....

(Plus the other issues of not having the time or energy to do any of this, let alone the cash. Can't save 'em all.)

Maybe I can put in a call to a cat rescue organization that does TNRs anyway. They might be willing to wade in and handle this. If they're not overwhelmed. (LOL. Of course they're overwhelmed.)

Jenn referred to her being "home" the other day, meaning being on our porch.

We've got to get her moved, and fast. If we keep talking like that, she'll be our cat.

Now, last week she disappeared when it was time to grab her to go to the van. Next week, won't let her do that.

Also, Bookriot has a $500 sweepstakes to spend at whatever bookstore you like.

I've spent most of last week being the Glamorous Assistant on Ziggy's lucet stand at Alexandra Palace. I had numerous comments on my hair!!! Not a brilliantly successful show, and the news is that (thank goodness!) it's going back to four days next year, so we may do better. I'm booked in for Olympia in March, anyway. The rest of the details )

Technology is thwarting me: more details )

My lungs are also thwarting me - more wheezy details! )

Hurricane Ophelia has apparently picked up sub-Saharan dust, and the light outside is indeed very strange right now - the sun looks orange through the clouds, and the light is yellowish. It's breezy, but not too bad. So far.

This morning the postie brought my latest Loki t-shirt - this one is an 'official' Marvel one from Forbidden Planet, who I really, REALLY, should not have followed on twitter... Oh well.

In Knitting Knews, I'm halfway up the feet of a pair of purple merino socks, cast on for easy bus-knitting last week. I spoke to a woman at the show who was wearing a really rather nice shawl, made up of half-circle shapes of various sizes in lace and plain stocking stitch divided by garter-stitch 'ribs', but she told me it was a kit from an American company that she'd bought, and then used the yarn for something else & knitted the pattern in her own yarn, and she wasn't sure of the name. However, I've tracked it down through Ravelry ... only to find that it's only available in an e-book of three patterns for (eek!) $35.94. That's worse than the £20 for Laine Magazine (issue 1) for the Syv sock pattern. I mean, I've got enough topped up in paypal now that I could afford it, but I only want ONE of the patterns (Key of Life, from ArtYarns, by Iris Schreier), and almost £28 for one pattern is rather excessive.

Thanks to the lungs, I didn't feel up to going shopping this morning; I've done a load of washing (thank you Cough O'Doom ... not), and was also available (yay!) for the postie. I may or may not feel up to knitting this evening, and as for rehearsal on Sunday ... Well, I'll just have to see what happens tomorrow with this spirometry thing.

3. Klingons torturing people are the worst Klingons, with or without implied rape.

4. Yay, gays!

Both House and Senate have bills to prevent the President from launching a pre-emptive nuclear strike without a congressional declaration of war. They're both called the Restricting First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act of 2017. (S. 200 - Senate, HR 669 - House.) Passing those bills may literally save the world.

How to save the world:

1. Contact your representatives in Congress. Ask them to co-sponsor the bill NOW, before it's too late.

2. Contact EVERYONE in Congress who might want to prevent a nuclear war. Usually people only speak to their own representatives. But with the fate of the entire world is at stake, it's worth contacting everyone who might listen.

3. Promote the Pull The Football campaign on social media. Trump isn't the only one who can use Twitter. Get on it and start tweeting #PullTheFootball.

They were over $100 for six doses. That was about a year ago, and comparable with cat flea meds. Last time I looked, a week ago they were around $20 for the same number. Sticker shock, but in the good way!

Finally got an answer for this - they came off patent! Well, hallelujah! Doggies hopefully will stop scratching soon, and I'll corral the cats soon. I'm making a mark of the day - it's entirely possible the real problem is that I wasn't keeping a strict enough regimen of when they were dosed. Fingers crossed, anyway.

Update on Mum

Oct. 14th, 2017 03:38 pm

[personal profile] eoforyth
I'm sorry I haven't gotten round to replying to people individually, but thank you for your thoughts.

I recently phoned the hospital to find out how mum was following the surgery, only to be informed that she's moved to a high dependancy unit. Having phoned the new ward it turns out it isn't anything too dangerous, but more a precaution.

Mum's had the surgery; the blockage has been cleared and she's not having the same issue with water any longer. However, I believe, she had a minor infection, and her blood was a little off (low pulse, blood glucose wasn't quite right) so they've moved her to the HDU just to keep an eye on her. Inspite of this, the woman I was talking to was pretty happy about how mum was doing; apparently she's already woken up and spoken to the staff for a little while, but she's also spent a lot of time sleeping. Ultimately though she seems to be stable.

They think she's probably going to be in hospital for a week, and they think it'll be a good idea if I speak to a doctor, so I'm going to try to get in on Monday. P and J and staying with the same family friends who helped us out when dad went into hospital so they're ok. I'm keeping in contact with them and letting them know what happens. I'm also keeping in contact with dad to make sure he doesn't worry, but healthwise he seems to be doing better. I'll try to get in to see him on Tuesday before my week-long bus ticket runs out.

I'm not doing too badly. I haven't been as productive today as I wanted on account of me sleeping through my alarm, so I'll try and get on with some more stuff once I've eaten, but make a better push tomorrow.

Important news about Dawn's health

[personal profile] eoforyth
Last night around 11:30-ish mum's pain levels spiked really badly in different areas to normal and she was also struggling to keep down any water. By around 4:30am it got too much and she had to phone for an ambulance. She's been taken to Winchester hospital, where she spent at least 5 hours in A&E, but they did do an x-ray and a CT scan whilst she was there.

They believe that she has a blockage in/around her kidney which, whilst not ideal, is not as bad as it could be. She is currently in a ward, attempting to eat a salad, and has been given enough medication that her pain levels are almost back to usual, but apparently at a level she can cope with. She's also been seen by an anaesthetist as they want to try and get her into surgery first thing tomorrow morning. Mum wasn't told completely what they plan on doing as they still need to do a little more investigating, but she's thinks they're most likely just going to put in a stent.

As far as mum's concerned everything is going ahead fine and doesn't want people to worry, but I felt it pertinent to at least let her friends know. I won't know anything more until tomorrow, but I will try to keep here updated when I do.

(Also, sorry about any bad grammar/spelling - I'm very very tired)

Gaming Updates and HPC Conferences

Oct. 13th, 2017 10:49 pm

[personal profile] tcpip
Much of this week has been spent finishing the last several thousand words to Papers & Paychecks with a plan to send to printers next week, although I can't seem to contact Tim Kask, whom I would like to write the foreword (which I discovered many months ago, he wanted to do). It has also been a week of multiple gaming sessions with a new RuneQuest game with new GM on Sunday set in Questworld and incorporating the somewhat maligned Eldarad supplement, and then a committee meeting for the RPG Cooperative (we'll be off to see Blade Runner 2049 soon. It was followed up with an session of Elric! on Wednesday night, where we've started using and rebuilding The Tower of Yrkath Florn. Tonight was a session of Eclipse Phase which was based at an academic psychology conference.

This has rather curious parallels of course, as on Monday I attended the Victorian Directors of IT conference. Much of it was rather vague and high level, but there were a few good sessions, and the education-based keynote by Professor Liz Johnson was excellent. Liz has been kind enough to review the co-authored presentation I am giving at eResearchAustralasia in Brisbane next week. After that I'll be back home for a few days before going to the IEEE eScience conference in Auckland. I would actually like to spend several days at home in succession, and it all hasn't been helped by the fact that I have worked a little on the late side a few days at work, part of which included completing the PRACE HPC course.

There is a curious paradox at play; most occupational health research suggests that people (and especially men) should ease themselves into retirement - drop down to four days at 40, three days at 50, two at 60, and then one, then zero. However as you get older you also become more skilled especially in particular niche - and if you have any work ethic whatsoever, there is a motivation to work longer hours despite the negatie socio-economic effects this has, not to mention the toll on personal health. Indeed, it requires a significant degree of personal willpower these days to drag oneself away at the nominal close of business. I have significant doubts that this is part of my disposition.
