I now know why my new mouse was only $7. The mouse itself is excellent. Perfect size for my tiny hands, centre click that actually works, and isn't very jittery at all.

The USB connection, however, utter shit. It's way too big. Sticks out awkwardly, and rather gets in the way if you're using a laptop on a surface other than a table, ie your LAP. Also, my cats like to make out with it, and I'm fairly sure that it's already got a short, after less than a fortnight.

I may break down and get a proper laptop mouse with a proper USB connection that hardly sticks out at all. Best Buy had some good Logitech mice. I just didn't feel like spending money on Logitech last time, because they are a bit expensive. But I think it will probably be worth it.

Someone please explain this pairing to me, because I do not understand it.

Do you know what would be awesome? AO3 really needs a sense of community. Attach a journal feature, or turn the collections into communities and give them small message boards or something. It's great as an archive -- the best out there, by far -- but I don't really find much of a reason to just hang out there the way I do on LJ or dA.

And I think that's exactly why I've been on dA since the beginning of time. I can upload my stuff there, but I can also go faff about and meet and get to know people. LJ's the same. Not totally well-suited for fic/art uploads and archival, but it has the social aspect down perfectly.


AO3 is great. It really is, and they're always coming out with new little tweaks and changes. I'd just really like to see a few big changes over there as well.

Only me

I'm up to a naked shower scene in the latest instalment of Sex is Boring. One in which I would have to describe John's shoulder scar.

Based off of what I already know about such things, I realised I'd have to do a bit of research into it, since his scar is always described quite inaccurately in fic (standard description tends to be that of an exit wound from a very large round that had required extensive skin grafting, which would be fine and dandy if not for the fact that this description tends to be coupled with memories/deductions of the bullet being dug out, thereby leaving no exit wound).

After looking at countless photographs and reading accounts of surgeons, physio therapists, and victims dealing with GSW to the shoulder, I found that I had been put off writing the shower scene. Well, put off isn't quite accurate. I'm bored by the shower scene now, and found the photographs and blog entries far more interesting than the reason I needed to do the research in the first place.

Whoops?

I've had an influx of people watching whose names I recognise from around the Sherlock fandom, so I'll start doing updates for any major fic posts over here. So, on that note...

Part three of Sex is Boring is up.
