Summary: When Harley met Mark, sparks flew.


Okay, this one's been . . . jeez, over three years in the making!  For a reason I can't remember, the lovely faithinfire and I were discussing 'Taker's hat, and how on earth he worked out how to take it off in the ring just the right way.

I did a little experimenting with my own Akubra, and all of a sudden this chapter was "born"!  Been waiting what feels like forever (over three years, honestly!) to be get to this point in the story and be able to point at faithinfire and say in a loud, steady voice, "It's All. Her. Fault!" -snickelfritz!-

Thanks for reading and remember - feedback is always appreciated. I'm writing for the love of it, but I'm publishing to hear the opinions of others.

And since updating's a bit sporadic, and to save you trawling back through the archives (although I have helpfully tagged all the chapters!), you'll find links to all the earlier chapters

Another shoutout - this time to Charles Robinson (@CRobinsonWWERef) and John Cone (who apparently has since deleted his Twitter account, unfortunately!), hard-working WWE referees, who've shared some great behind the scenes info about the work of the crew via Twitter.

Things you need to know about ACTA

ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Essential ACTA Resources

  • Read more about ACTA here: ACTA Fact Sheet
  • Read the authentic version of the ACTA text as of 15 April 2011, as finalized by participating countries here: ACTA Finalized Text
  • Follow the history of the treaty’s formation here: ACTA history
  • Read letters from U.S. Senator Ron Wyden wherein he challenges the constitutionality of ACTA: Letter 1 | Letter 2 | Read the Administration’s Response to Wyden’s First Letter here: Response
  • Watch a short informative video on ACTA: ACTA Video
  • Watch a lulzy video on ACTA: Lulzy Video

Say NO to ACTA. It is essential to spread awareness and get the word out on ACTA.

Yes, another chapter - call it a New Year's present! Hoping to have more time to write this year, and therefore have more to post - we shall see how that goes.

Last call, my ass! ;-)

Well, okay, close to last call!

If you haven't already signed up for your free set of Kinzu steak knives with purchase super cool and groovy Christmas card from yours truly, then hop on over here, quick like a bunny and do so!

Christmas graphics have been trawled, printer's set up and ready to rock and roll and I got posting to do!

Once in a lifetime offer, never to be repeated at this price . . . -snickers-

Because nothing says "I love you!" like getting a card in the mail with a special surprise just for you! ;-)

Plus, this is keeping me busy while I can't do much else - help a sistah out here!

I can only hope LJ stays DDOS-free long enough for anyone to see this post . . .

BAD Internet Laws Heading Your Way

From the flist: 



Spread the word, even you're not a US citizen, it is important for everyone!! It easy to do and it can change everything. More info by clicking on the banner.

Website Blocking

The government can order service providers to block websites for infringing links posted by any users.

Risk of Jail for Ordinary Users

It becomes a felony with a potential 5 year sentence to stream a copyrighted work that would cost more than $2,500 to license, even if you are a totally noncommercial user, e.g. singing a pop song on Facebook.

Chaos for the Internet

Thousands of sites that are legal under the DMCA would face new legal threats. People trying to keep the internet more secure wouldn't be able to rely on the integrity of the DNS system.


Read this analysis from boing-boing.net

Get on the phone and call your representative. Express your disapproval. Tell him or her exactly how you feel, and that you don't support this. Tell your friends to call their representatives, their Congressperson, and complain. Mention that you are a registered voter that takes your civic responsibility seriously and that you will use that vote to express your feelings about this.

http://www.rollcall.com/issues/57_60/Internet-Companies-Boost-Hill-Lobbying-210345-1.html?pos=olobh

“We support the bill’s stated goals — providing additional enforcement tools to combat foreign ‘rogue’ websites that are dedicated to copyright infringement or counterfeiting,” the Internet companies wrote in Tuesday’s letter. “Unfortunately, the bills as drafted would expose law-abiding U.S. Internet and technology companies to new uncertain liabilities, private rights of action and technology mandates that would require monitoring of websites.”  The chamber-led coalition in support of the bill includes Walmart, Eli Lilly & Co. and Netflix.

Google and other opponents of the legislation argue that restricting the Internet in the U.S. sets a bad international precedent and that the language defines infringing too broadly.

. . . which begs the question - where the bloody hell has this year gone?  ;-)

And yes, I probably should do an update but honestly, 2011 started out horribly and while there's been some good stuff, there's been a bunch of bad stuff that I don't want to bring people down with.  Far better to follow me on Twitter - it's hard to be down in 140 characters!

Anyway, seeing as how it's coming up to Christmas, and because lyndasty has posted hers already, this is my shout out for Christmas cards!

If you'd like a Christmas card - yes, a real old-fashioned snail mail one - with a lovingly hand-decorated envelope (well okay, it's clipart and my printer, shup, it's the thought that counts!  And the trawling for new Christmas graphics!) all the way from Australia, then leave me a comment!

Comments will of course be screened for privacy, so you can give me your snail mail address.  And your for-realz name, unless folks at your domicile will be un-phased by mail arriving addressed to your LiveJournal username! ;-)

Now, get to commenting!!

For those who wondered, no, it hasn't been abandoned. I've been writing away steadily (to the tune of at least one notebook filled, thanks!) on this, and also my other stories. I've just not been posting.

Still seeing how posting this goes.
