2. New author wordwitch has tried her hand at fanfic with a pair of clever and fun The Sentinel slash stories I just adore: Detecting Sandburg (Jim's POV) and Observing Sandburg (Blair's POV). It's been awhile since I've read a really good TS fic (pheral's panther-ficlet notwithstanding! *eg*), so check 'em out. They're worth it.
3. dknightshade is stepping up to the plate with a proposal to run a Knight Rider Ficathon at the_kittchen. It's a marvelous idea, but is going to take the whole community's cooperation to pull off -- not least because the very concept of a ficathon is new to most KR fans. But if we all pull together on this, we can not only make it work, we'll have an absolute blast doing it! :P
In other news... After waiting two weeks sans-PC to get my monitor fixed (because, of course, it had a rare never-seen-this-before programming error), I finally get it back only to find there is now something wrong with my computer itself. What's wrong? I really have no idea. It's slow as molasses trying to do anything, but especially internet-related tasks. I've run scans for viruses, ad-aware, and spybots. I've shut down and rebooted. But, inevitably, the problem reappears.
Since it seems to me to be originating with Internet Explorer, I cursed Bill Gates to the fiery pits of Hell and downloaded Mozilla's Firefox. (Any of you on my Flist -- redwolf -- who get points for converting others, feel free to check yourself another one.) I'm typing this entry using Firefox now, as a matter of fact. Assuming it doesn't suffer performance anxiety like IE, we'll see what I think of it after I use it for a bit.
