another open letter of sorts:

I'm back online but in a very reduced capacity. There are no broadband ports open in our area right now (Keep your fingers crossed for one to open up for yes, okay?), and so we're making due with Optus wifi which relies on a SIM card and a satellite to create a signal for connection.

The downside to this is two fold: firstly, we only get small increments of data at a time (and they are expensive) so I won't be on as often, and secondly, this connection degrades image quality something awful. Look at a jpg artefact sometime and then multiply that by about one hundred, and that's about what icons look to me right now. Screencaps have also fallen victim. So that means...no making icons, no saving icons, no commenting on icons, no leaving concrit on icons, etc. Pretty much my entire icon life is over until further notice. I'll be in the corner being sad.

Both of these issues also mean that Tumblr is off the table for me for right now. I think this mostly concerns tinebrella and a_fast_machine who I talk to the most often on there. And Grace? I know you've left me some Tumblr asks. I am so sorry that I haven't been able to get to them and reply. I am really excited about all your Will feels though. Those are a+ feels; get some tissues.

I am capable of running T-R (thank goodness), but it kind of looks like we won't have enough entries which is so terribly depressing for me right now. SO IF YOU ARE BORED, GO WHIP UP 12 ICONS REALLY FAST, OKAY? Awesome.

Anyway, I appreciate all the lovely comments I've seen on my last two entries. I miss you guys as well. Due to the high number of times I open my friends list to find uncut gifs and pictures of large sizes, I probably won't be venturing in there too often, but I do want to stay up to date with you guys so feel free to message me if you want to chat or what have you. Or I'll message you. It'll probably be creepy though. Ask rebel. ;)

And if I go missing for, like, a really long time and you can't get a message to me or whatever, chances are raiindust knows what's up because I'll have texted her frantically in the middle of the night. So you can ask her if need be. She's my emergency contact which I should probably okay with her in a message so I'mma go do that now.

To sign off, thank you all (again) for any support and/or awesome things you do for me between now and broadband. Your support means the world to me, and you are all priceless gems. Let no one convince you otherwise. ♥

This entry (like the past two) will be left public for the time being so that anyone who gets curious about where I've been/will be can see for themselves.

Hey guys,

Just checking in again to say that I'm not dead.

We have moved house though, and even though I've been on the phone with our new internet provider, our application process is moving along rather slowly. I am hoping to have internet again sometime this week, but there's no guarantee which means I'll be missing in action for a little while longer most likely.

Which couldn't have come at a worse time since I here Magic Awards is up and running right now. There are so many of you I want to nominate, but I won't have the time to do so this year. Major bummer. Anyway, good luck to everyone! <3

Now I've got to dash and take care of Turbo Rumble the best I can before I have to leave the library and their really lovely free wifi.

Samantha.

Hey guys, due to some...unfortunate personal circumstances, I will need to put most of my internet life on hiatus. My internet connection isn't stable right now, and I have no idea where and when I'll be able to connect to the internet. Right now I'm at the library using their wi-fi, but obviously, I can't stay at the library forever.

When I am on campus and when I can get to the library, I will. So I should be able to, every now and then, answer PMs and the like. So if you need me, I'll try and be there.

For now, Turbo Rumble will go ahead as planned, and I have my fingers crossed I can get things resolved by then. But I can't promise anything. Other than that, I am going to have to drop all my modding duties which pains me greatly.

If you are one of my co-mods for a community that is active right now, I'll be sending you a PM shortly.

Alright, live long and prosper everyone. ♥

Greetings to everyone I've added recently. As you might have gleaned from the fact that I didn't do a 'welcome' post like everyone else with manners did after adding everyone, I don't post a lot. And when I do, I like to be selfish so here's my thread at that meme that is going around. ;)

holiday love meme 2012


my thread here


I'll be going around and attempting to comment on all the threads that show up on my f'list. Y'all are awesome. ♥

(For the record, this was supposed to be up a little earlier, but there was a crisis involving a hand saw.) HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JESS! \o/ Wishing you all the best for today. It sounds like your High Tea is going to be the best. Eat lots of goodies and be twice as merry, bb! ♥

01. Hiya everyone! Guess what I did? Renamed my warlockedd account to absolutelybatty! It came to my attention that my attachment wasn't to the account, but rather to the name. So I probably should have simply done this to begin with. Anyway, it's going to help me with my community clean out anyway (and one of my icon resolutions to be less active in icon contests and 20in20s). It should also mean more time for my f'list since I'll...just be on this account all the time now. Also it means less confusion for most of you since you interact with me under this user name anyway. Win/win for everyone, am I right?

02. HI F'LIST. I AM SORRY I HAVE NEGLECTED YOU. I LOVE YOU DEARLY. I AM COMING BACK TO YOU. <3
