Yeah, so, Google can do nothing if you delete a calendar. Its gone forever. There are no backups.

However, my lovely and wonderful iPhone appointment book app automatically creates a locally stored backup before every sync with any outside source! (and by 'a backup' I mean '10 most recent syncs')

And you can not only restore (repeatedly) from any one of these backups, you can also email them to yourself in file format.


My digital life has been (literally) saved, and my calendars have been resurrected - I could even choose a backup from before things started having duplication issues, and that was before a couple hours of futzing and many syncs.

Hurray! :)

(Thanks to all for the various forms of advice and condolences.)
lawbard: (Tea!)
...well I was trying to get my calendar app in my phone to update with my google calendar, because the app's last upgrade completely redesigned it.

In the process, I kept getting duplicates on both devices - so rather than have "Madrigal Weekend" or "Dentist Appointment" listed 2-4 times everyplace and have to manually delete them one at a time, I tried to purge one entirely to then update it.

But apparently the order of operations was a bit backwards.

I have completely deleted my entire life of appointments and functions from 2009 to 2013 and there is no way in the world to retrieve it.


It'll be a pain in the ass to re-create things for the future. It'll be annoying to risk missing appointments in the present.

But the past - the treasured past of what I did and when - its gone. Eating by the fucking memory hole of user error.

This is why we can't have nice things. And if you've scheduled something with me - let me know what and when it was.

And on top of that, I've got a splitting hunger headache and managed to hurt the feelings of someone who is very special to me today.

Today isn't just fired. Today is pepper sprayed in the face for endangering officer safety by being unarmed while sitting motionless on the pavement.

Shamelessly stolen from [ profile] bakeneko

1. Pick four of your characters. PCs/NPCs/Wevs
2. Wander around until you find 5 tropes that fit each character
3. Post 'em

Ok, I only did 2, but then I'm only running 2 PCs at the moment. And I don't want to give away info about my reoccuring 7V NPCs.

But here they are - Trelaine from Madrigal, and Loralon from MM:

Nice hat
Squishy Wizard
Cultured Badass
Ideal Hero
The Dandy

Above Good and Evil
Moral Event Horizon
Well Intentioned Extremist
The Sacred Darkness
Leave No Survivors

Time successfully wasted!

...which is where we expect the other side of the gate will come out.

We are now in Evil Opposite World. Evil Valentine and Evil Trelaine go on a Saturday Stroll through Mhurkiel to walk their Shoathri. (Yes, on the chain leashes the Xerelotians on a String often wear.)

Evil Valentine, of course, walks Lona.

The question is - who does Evil Trelaine walk?

Leave your votes/suggestions in the comments!

I blame [ profile] rowan_syngwyn. For the meme - not the result, of course. That's about as surprising as finding feathers on a crow.

You are The Fool

The Fool is the card of infinite possibilities. The bag on the staff indicates that he has all he need to do or be anything he wants, he has only to stop and unpack. He is on his way to a brand new beginning. But the card carries a little bark of warning as well. Stop daydreaming and fantasising and watch your step, lest you fall and end up looking the fool.

Reposted from many sources. My own thoughts under the cut at the end.

"Originally posted by [ profile] gabrielleabelle at Mississippi Personhood Amendment
Okay, so I don't usually do this, but this is an issue near and dear to me and this is getting very little no attention in the mainstream media.

Mississippi is voting on November 8th on whether to pass Amendment 26, the "Personhood Amendment". This amendment would grant fertilized eggs and fetuses personhood status.

Putting aside the contentious issue of abortion, this would effectively outlaw birth control and criminalize women who have miscarriages. This is not a good thing.

Jackson Women's Health Organization is the only place women can get abortions in the entire state, and they are trying to launch a grassroots movement against this amendment. This doesn't just apply to Mississippi, though, as Personhood USA, the group that introduced this amendment, is trying to introduce identical amendments in all 50 states.

What's more, in Mississippi, this amendment is expected to pass. It even has Mississippi Democrats, including the Attorney General, Jim Hood, backing it.

The reason I'm posting this here is because I made a meager donation to the Jackson Women's Health Organization this morning, and I received a personal email back hours later - on a Sunday - thanking me and noting that I'm one of the first "outside" people to contribute.

So if you sometimes pass on political action because you figure that enough other people will do something to make a difference, make an exception on this one. My RSS reader is near silent on this amendment. I only found out about it through a feminist blog. The mainstream media is not reporting on it.

If there is ever a time to donate or send a letter in protest, this would be it.

What to do?

- Read up on it. Wake Up, Mississippi is the home of the grassroots effort to fight this amendment. Daily Kos also has a thorough story on it.

- If you can afford it, you can donate at the site's link.

- You can contact the Democratic National Committee to see why more of our representatives aren't speaking out against this.

- Like this Facebook page to help spread awareness."

lawbard: (Study) now done. The last event was yesterday, and it was all kinds of viking fur clad axe wielding awesome.

FIRE BREATHING DRAGON. Well, ice breathing undead dragon. Seriously. 3 person operated rig, two massive claws and a head with glowing eyes, removable scales, and a glowing heart underneath - that BREATHED STEAM at people. Well, it was a fire extinguisher's CO2 blast. But wow. Stand in front of that and know what a breath weapon hits like. Or stand in front of it with a shield and you're in a scene right out of the original D&D handbook.

It was even more awesome than the Kraken from Pirates.

I'm going to miss it - partially because it was fun, but mostly because a number of the people who ran it - well I don't see them often. Some may be done with larping all together. Means I need to find another way to get together, and thats harder the older one gets it seems. Meh!

But one thing at a time. Next up, 7V then MM.

This weekend was a lot of stuff at once - Mirror Mirror *and* GrumCo.

I had a lovely time, getting to see some of the VA contingent, as well as others I haven't been able to see in a long time. Also, ze baby is very cute. All of this on top of weekend larpy-mania, which was great fun - though the humidity really just crushed everyone.

I'm home now, and seconds from falling flat on my face. So I leave you with this final feline, for [ profile] rowan_syngwyn!

You know you crave it. Deep down inside, you do. The sound of screaming players running away from you. Or even at you. The resounding thud and smack of plumbing supplies hitting costuming or other sets of plumbing supplies. The birdseed flying through the air.

But wait! Endgame's cancelled? Well, you DO have an alternative.

Valhalla! Not cancelled. One day only. Axes, beards, round shields and furs. Also known as "fight practice". Come NPC! You know you want to. Deep down, you won't let some theoretical bad weather stop you. Not days before the event. No, you'll go until the on-site conditions get untenable. But in this case, you don't have to worry about pitching tents, keeping food, or overnight incidents. Because its one day!

The Halls of Valhalla...where the brave shall live forever!

(As long as they have brave death stories in the book. They need your help dying to keep living. So get cracking!)

Lets remember what is important here folks. Being able to perform doesn't make you a good person or excuse your criminal conduct. So don't pretend your idol is somehow magically not guilty of what they have done, ok?
