      I just made about a hojillion mixes for my friend Key, so I figured I'd share them with you. Links are to Spotify, which is now shockingly not terrible for U.S. users.

      1. Cut the Kids in Half
      Anders grows up in the Ferelden Circle

      2. Escape Champion
      Anders runs away a lot'”literally and emotionally

      3. Awakening
      Anders joins the Wardens and Justice has an influence

      4. The Next Wrong Place
      Fleeing to Kirkwall and starting over

      5. Don't Fall in Love With Me Yet
      Anders thinks a relationship would be a mistake, especially after Karl; Hawke isn't taking that for an answer

      6. Goddamn the Light
      Fuck you, Chantry: love wins

      Anders treasures his time with Hawke, but he sees the last straw on the horizon

      Password Security

      1 year ago

      With the recent revelation of Heartbleed, I'm taking the opportunity to finally enact really solid password practices: not only using strong passwords, but ensuring that they're unique across all accounts.

      In case anybody else is interested in doing the same, here are the tools I'm using:

      Password Gorilla: A password management program available for Windows, MacOS, and Linux. Allows you to create databases of your passwords that are compatible with Password Safe (which means the DB files are compatible with some other password management programs). The program can generate unique, strong passwords for the logins stored in it. Because each DB is locked with a master password, you only have to remember one to access the rest.

      PasswdSafe: An Android port of the original Password Safe program. I plan to use this so that I can access my accounts while away from my computer (at work, on the phone itself, etc.).

      PasswdSafe Sync: Optional companion app that syncs the password databases on your phone via your choice of cloud applications.

      Setting up the original database is going to be a pain in the ass, since I have accounts all over the goddamn internet, but once it's done, I'm going to be a lot more comfortable, knowing that the loss of a single password will never put my other accounts at risk.

      BEHOLD!

      I'm back. Sorry I was gone so long'”somebody here said something deeply ignorant and offensive, and even just looking at the alert for responses to my response made me so angry I didn't even want to be here. And then the backlog just kept building up. Soooooooooooo today I just cleared most of it out. Let me know if I missed anything important.

      My big news since I've been gone is Star Trek Rewatch.

      My parents being huge nerds, I grew up on Star Trek TV shows. A few years ago, I bought the boxed set of Star Trek: The Next Generation DVDs and started watching the whole series straight through from the beginning. As often happens when I'm working my way through something longer, I stalled out midway through. The rewatch finally came off hiatus last summer, when I realized that the Star Trek shows are all on Netflix.

      There was just one problem... Sometimes, stupid shit happens in these shows. Really, really stupid shit. And I find it to be a lot easier to power through to the good bits if I can express my frustration with the bad ones.

      So I started sending texts to my friend WG while I watched. Sometimes he texted back his own additions or responses, but mostly he just provided a sympathetic ear for my cathartic mockery. And, along the way, he kept dropping suggestions that I should turn the whole conversation into a blog.

      In October, I finally transcribed the existing texts and made a blog to host them. Apparently strangers on the internet actually were interested, because we now have over 50 followers, the vast majority of them strangers. Not too shabby. We're currently in the middle of Deep Space Nine, which I think is what provided one of the biggest boosts, because there is some serious DS9 fandom on Tumblr.

      Long past time for another mix. Most of this is stuff from 2012; one song is from 2010, and two are from this year. Bonus: I finally figured out how to make a playlist with relative locations, so there's an M3U in there.

      This Is It
      Title to be read with your personal choice of inflection.
      [Sendspace][Filedropper][Mega]

      01. Nonagon - "The Swifts"
      02. Future of the Left - "I Am the Least of Your Problems"
      03. Victory and Associates - "Wildly Plausible"
      04. B. Hamilton - "Gold Tooth"
      05. The Mountain Goats - "Lakeside View Apartments Suite"
      06. Nervous Curtains - "Moody Photos"
      07. Minutes - "Sheriff of Morlock County"
      08. Tilts - "Ozark Bowtie"
      09. Like Like The The The Death - "Fight Fauna with Fauna"
      10. We Are Hex - "Birthplace of the Mystics"
      11. flaum adger - "Damned If You Do, Really Damned If You Do It a Lot"
      12. Body Futures - "Phantom Patterns Arson"
      13. HEAVY HAND - "Hey Guy"
      14. Thoughts Detecting Machines - "Machines (Take Good Care of the)"
      15. IfIHadAHiFi - "All Hail Magnets"

      As per usual, all of these are off of albums/EPs that I'd absolutely recommend. All of them should be very easy to find; most of the artists are on Bandcamp, and a lot of the source albums are available at least partially streaming. If you're having trouble finding anything, just holler.

      And, of course, to tide you over while you wait for the download, here's a video for a good song that's not in the mix.

    1.) No, I will not be your friend.
    2.) I locked your thread because it was stupid, not because I hate you on some kind of personal level.
    3.) I read every message and comment I get, but that doesn't mean I respond to all of them.

        When I came back a few months ago, I figured you had gone away since your MOD tag was missing at the time. Site's much better with you than without.

        And it's a good thing I delayed, or there are a couple of things that wouldn't have been included because I didn't have them yet (We Are Hex and Flaum Adger for sure).
