Yay!

Yay again!

Now I'm really just watching to see how the Prop 8 stuff turns out. There was a set of four girls outside near a voting place just down the street from my block who were bouncing up and down, waving No to Prop 8 signs and getting people to honk their horns.

I wore my:

[√] GAY
[√] BISEXUAL
[√] TRANSGENDER
[√] STRAIGHT
[] OTHER
SPECIFY: IT'S ALL GOOD

shirt from illinois's LGBT group to support, although... I didn't wander around much on the streets, since we got lunch in the office (we were busy launching something).

Even so, McCain bluntly admits, "I don't e-mail. I've never felt the particular need to e-mail."

There will be a whole different "Day of Silence" this 26th of June, 2007.

Due to planned increase in royalty rates, many internet radio stations (or, streaming music stations... whatever you wish to call them), like DI.FM, Japan-a-radio (whee, streaming anime music and J-pop!) may get shut down.

To quote:
If the rates are left unchanged, virtually all independent webcasters will be bankrupted and most larger parent companies would logically shut down their Internet radio divisions through the end of the 2005-10 period.

First, via [livejournal.com profile] jaiwithani, this amusing bit of news.

AKRON, Ohio - If an Ohio lawmaker's proposal becomes state law, Republicans would be barred from being adoptive parents.

State Sen. Robert Hagan sent out e-mails to fellow lawmakers late Wednesday night, stating that he intends to "introduce legislation in the near future that would ban households with one or more Republican voters from adopting children or acting as foster parents." The e-mail ended with a request for co-sponsorship.

On Thursday, the Youngstown Democrat said he had not yet found a co-sponsor.

Hagan said his "tongue was planted firmly in cheek" when he drafted the proposed legislation. However, Hagan said that the point he is trying to make is nonetheless very serious.

Hagan said his legislation was written in response to a bill introduced in the Ohio House this month by state Rep. Ron Hood, R-Ashville, that is aimed at prohibiting gay adoption.

Google appears to be climbing a bit... and most of the news/panic over dropping prices seem to have gone away. There's more positiveness in media over Google's anti-government request-for-information although most of those echoes have quieted down, and all of the anti-Google&China stuff has gone away.

Don't think I'm going to buy, yet. Still counting me gold pieces after the rather spontaneous donation to Diane Duane...

More 'bout the donation; We, the readers/fans have apparently managed to clear the $1000 challenge (eh, sorta like a tit-for-tat donation system~ sponsor said he'll match up to $1000~ and as of right now, there's been a total of $1087.50 donated~. Within 36 hours of the announcement. W00t. I feel fuzzy inside. =^^=

Grah, and I'm way too careless when it comes to exams. Need to... quadruple-check my work. I think Iost at least 10, if not 15 points due to carelessness.

And I half-heartedly did my math exam today. Being that it was at 9AM, and my previous exam ended at 9 PM, the 12 hours between exams just wasn't enough to really study much. As a result, some answers were guessed. =.=

Now to study for ECE329.

Oh, and I got stopped by a police officer today while on my bike. Apparently it is a bad thing to cross the street while the "don't walk" sign is _blinking_.

WTF? It was just a warning, but seriously. I looked all four ways before going, no one was turning... Hell, there wasn't any moving cars at the intersection when I crossed. Safely is good and all, but if I was to sit at every stop light and wait for a walk signal, I'd double my travel time.

Hmm ...Need to observe other pedestrians.

Oh, right. I think this would be awesome to keep around. Either it shows how much you use your computer, or how skilled you are. :D
