This morning frostyw sent an AIM message to my Sidekick, informing me that masem had found a patch for Trillian to handle the fine job AOL did of messing up the client AIM protocol now that they've released AOL 8.0. I love the games they try to play with the Cerulean folks. When will AOL just admit they're outclassed and quit being so damn squirrely about other clients connecting to their network?
Work was work. I won't comment on that right now, except to say that little tiny minds only understand little tiny things.
On a more pleasant topic not related to work: there was Yet More Good News About Art tonight. I won an auction on FurBid that I've been eyeballing for the last four or five days since it was brought to my attention. I'm really excited at the chance to finally get a particular image I've had kicking around in the back of my mind for almost a year now out of my head and into the hands of an artist who I believe will do a kick-ass job of bringing it to life. A select few people know what the idea is, and all of us agree that there are maybe three artists in the entire furry fandom who would do well with the piece. But when push comes to shove we all concur that the person I won the auction with is the absolute ideal and will do the most justice for the piece. I will release more details in the future. Yes, I am being a bit secretive... I don't want to spoil the surprise. *vibrates a little with anticipation*
Two very cool commissions -- both long-anticipated -- are finally coming together. It's about damn time something went right this year!
He said come on, I said what for, he said I'll show you why
