"why are you wearing clothes?"
(via 2gayvirgos) I probably say this too often to be healthy.
Virgin Media has not yet said where it will first offer the 100Mbps service,...– Virgin bringing 100-Mbps to UK homes - International Business Times - I do not have anything even close to this speed. Dear Sir Richard: please include Canada. We’re very close to the UK in many ways.

On a sun dappled summer day a science expedition propels two children toward an enigmatic encounter at the edge of their known world. Arriving on an isolated beach, they stumble upon the shipwreck of a robotic squid submarine. The secret it holds within changes their lives forever. This is my friend Matthew’s short film’s website. Another friend did the graphic design and layout. I...

VANCOUVER — Everything from strollers to Frisbees, umbrellas, laser pointers and flags from non-participating countries are banned from Olympic venues, Vancouver 2010 officials announced this week. Officials told a Monday news conference that spectators should expect airport-style security, complete with x-ray machines and magnetometer screenings, when the Games begin on Feb. 12. ...

People who spend a lot of time surfing the internet are more likely to show signs of depression, British scientists said on Wednesday. Well duh!
crabbyalissa: If I internet-painted you a picture, you’d probably think I hated you. My Paint skills are horrifying at best. TDGS has got mad skillz, though. She’s like the Van Gogh of MSPaint, without the ear incident. If you paint me a picture, I’ll photograph something for you.
crabby-cakess asked: Tumblr catch up tells me I've missed your birthday! I hope it was a great one!
Oh no! Follower down.

Happy Birthday TDGS
Twenty-seven was a pretty sucky year for me. 28 was much much better. I met Mr. Love-and-Radiation that year and went back to school (and eventually finished an undergrad degree). I hope it works out even better for you.

love-and-radiation: But they failed to mention when he confirmed on Friday that the rink would be open tonight that the rink is not actually open because they’re doing rehearsals for the stupid Olympic mascot unveiling (Quatchi or whatever its name is can lick my crotch-i). And then we were going to go to the art gallery because someone was under the impression it was open and free—it wasn’t....
Happy birthday @ubermichael!
moreisnotenough: I kinda want to go ice-skating, too! Ice-skating would have been fun, but pitchers of beer with friends at a sketchy diner were also fun.
Someone who needs them has two messages from me.
thedisgruntledgradstudent: I think you know who you are. So you should check. Is it me? I hope it is, because I have two messages from you. AND NO MESSAGES FROM ANYONE ELSE.
So, the plan was to go skating.
The ice skating surface at Robson Square has been closed for five years. GE paid a gob of money to re-do it. It has been open to the public for free (skate rentals $3, if you don’t have your own) for a few months. Except tonight. Tonight the ice skating has been commandeered by VANOC for rehearsals for the offical unveiling of the mascots. I went to Robson Square in the rain on Friday to...

It should just be a matter of restarting the rails server that runs the code. I suspect that mongrel was using file descriptors to access the necessary directory and files. I know that few (maybe even none) of the people reading the email will know what a file descriptor actually is.
