48 hours offline at home- no tv, phone, or Internet! Thankfully it was an equipment failure, easily remedied, and took less than 15 minutes to get us back and running.

It was actually peaceful being offline in the evening and early mornings. I read a book (next post), watched some videos, including some Rescue Rangers episodes on DVD, and perused some old National Lampoons I had saved from archive.org a couple of years ago.

But I have some catch-up to do, now, then a book post.

I was surprised to see an "Equestria Girls" DVD come across the check-in desk at work today: I hadn't seen it and didn't know it was already on disc. I checked its status, and as it was available I checked it out and brought it home.

This movie is old news to most Bronies, so I'll keep this post simple-

Possible spoiler )

I liked it well enough.

I've got the weekend off from work, all three days! I don't intend to do very much, but it's nice not to deal with the public for a bit. I did some errands today, and even topped my tank in case things go wacky with O-bomb-a's nervous trigger finger.

plumI bought some Kahlua and some Bud at the local package store, a place I rarely step foot in. When did Kahlua decide to add 'rum' to their label? Apparently it was always made with 'rum' (sugar-cane spirits or some such language): this smacks of the re-packaging names game, like dried plums aren't really prunes... Rum is certainly more appealing than ~coffee liqueur~. Can you imagine Jack Sparrow sousing down a bottle of aperitif?

And I went swimming today, somewhat. I walked around the shallow end at least. It's been cold at night so the water temp is pretty chilly.

The rest of my day was spent either napping with the pooch or getting aggravated with freeware designed for making animated gifs. One of the conversion programs I downloaded (Any Video Converter)  was full of what I term malware, but it at least was honest enough to ask if I wanted to change my browser to some stupid AVG homepage and search screen. Another program I was downloading made me suspicious and when I checked the web I found it was not so upfront with changing your programs around: a lot of folks ragged on softpedia for their 'extras' included in downloads.

The results of my software hunt: I ended up using XnView to grab frames and then paste them one by one into my ancient JASC Animation Shop 1.0  until I gave up. There were 157 frames, and I just got bored after a dozen or so. This was the best I could do, I'm sorry to say: I miss my Pentium 1 with its capture card and primitive software that did these little animations so well.

That said, Happy Labor Day to those who celebrate it!

Animaniacs has returned to TV, on HUB of all places: this is from "Jockey for Position," the episode where Pinky falls in love with Pharfignewton <3



It took me forever to find the episode on YouTube, but my search was all wrong- I was looking for Pinky and the Brain instead of concentrating on Animaniacs. One site listed this as Season 1, episode 117, but the episode turned up as  #27.
