Iron Maiden confirms it! They're going to be part of Ozzfest this year! The Anthrax rumors, unfortunately, seem to be false. Oh well.

Hey blackbytes, can I have off the last two tuesdays of July?

Needless to say, I'm quite excited.

So, there was an interesting discussion the other day at work. Not many of you may know this, but some appliances have a Sabbath mode, which has some interesting features to help Orthodox Jews. TiVo doesn't have a Sabbath mode, so where does it fall? Can you program it to record something on the sabbath, or is it ok if you get a ``season pass'' for a show that you end up taping on the sabbath? Resident Jewish scholar runstaverun suggested a Sabbath mode that merely schedules another program for the sabbath, that has top priority, always creating a conflict if you attempt to TiVo something then.

You ever check out a friend's friends page, and notice the color they picked for you? You wonder to yourself later why they picked that color combination? Am I the only one?

And why did you pick that color combination for kingfox, anyway?

Feeling: jubilant jubilant

DUDE. Last year Priest, this year Maiden. Nice. And, oddly enough, I have been in a big Rob Zombie mood lately, and have always rather liked Shadows Fall. I'm going.

Of the couple Shadows Fall songs I've heard, they're not bad, though I normally don't enjoy that genre of metal.

I listened to lots of White Zombie on the long drive back for wideathtrip. This should really rock.

I feel like Shadows Fall would be awesome if they could just improve the vocals. The guitars on their new album are just INSANE.

the Sabbath mode

TiVo is ok in either situation. As long as the person in question doesn't hit the record button on the sabbath he can set things to record all he wants.

Re: the Sabbath mode

Why is that? We checked a number of websites online, and couldn't find anything specific to support or reject that.

Re: the Sabbath mode

because the rule is that you can not work (and by work we mean create or destroy anything) on the sabbath, by setting the things on a different day you are not the one doing any creation or destruction or work for that matter. You are not allowed to use a timer for something you normally use a timer for but a TiVo is a timer program so its ok. I'll get the actual source for you if you want.

Color combo: everyone gets a black background, to match my page. Then, I just try to pick a text color for each new arrival to my list that I haven't picked in a while. Sometimes, if i'm feeling ambitious, or if I seriously can't decide which color to use, I'll make a new custom color in Semagic. But not usually.

Ozzfest/Maiden: Happen to know the rest of the lineup yet?

Holy schnikies! There haven't been that many bands I wanted to see in one Ozzfest line-up in years!

My kingfox color defaulted to that. The people on my flist get colors fairly randomly. I try to keep tem all different when I do because I can recognize the color combination for the journal when I'm quick scrolling.

That's how I do it, too.

I think all of my RSS feeds are just black and white, and everyone else is fairly random.

Certain people (graye gets gray, for instance) are minor exceptions.

True, some people demand certain colors. You're the only friend with pink. :)

??????


that's either mean or hilarious.

I think hilarious.

Your journal is pink an green.
Therefore:
YOU BROUGHT UPON YOURSELF!

well, true

but it's only like that because LJ ate my design one day, like 2 or 3 years ago, and I haven't been bothered to re-do it.

I remember that day

I spent that whole time period copying and pasting my S1 overrides to notepad on every computer I used, JUST IN CASE.

"Cause red on black is just too hard for 60-year-old eyes to read, especially today when the sunlight on the snow beyond the window is bright.

I was once told that my color combination was the first readable red on black that a person ever saw. But I think that was another youngun.

If you're using Firefox or Mozilla to browse the web, hit control and equals a few times. Many of the older faculty and staff I help at the university swear by that functionality.
quillter From: quillter Date: March 21st, 2005 11:18 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

Firefox etc

Umm, er, I just use what Bearcat sets up for me, but if I understand the question, I am using Konqueror as my browser. Thanks though!

I used to listen to JM in the AM, Jewish Music in the morning, where the host would go over some of the fascinating hair-splitting engendered by thousands of years of debate. If the program still exists there, and I can't even recall which station it was on, it might be a good place to ask. My memory is that it was active work that was prohibited though, not arrangements to later enjoy what was scheduled for a sabbath. Like dragging a chair, lest it make a line in the dirt that could be considered a furrow--but walking to services was fine, just not driving.

That was actually one of the first places I thought of to call...

They're still around.
