Good morning everyone, and welcome to Radio Free Monday!

Ways To Give:

Devyn was hit with a series of emergencies and medical bills in the last month, and is fundraising to help pay a large vet bill, her own MRI bill, and multiple urgent-care trips as well as a car repair. You can read more, see some cute kitty pictures, and support the YouCaring here.

[tumblr.com profile] silversouledcat is raising money to stay in college and still be able to feed herself; she depends on her status as a college student for her meds, and on her independence to keep her sanity and distance from her parents. You can read more, find her paypal email, and reblog her post here.

Buy Stuff, Help Out:

[tumblr.com profile] roguewrld linked to a Planned Parenthood fundraiser -- buy a nerdy Klingon shirt and support Planned Parenthood! I...don't actually know what the shirt says but I understand it's a form of play on MAGA. You can read more and buy a shirt here!

Help for Free:

Anon linked to a petition regarding fanfiction.net -- the Malaysian government has blocked FFN due to the "lewd and explicit nature of its erotic stories" and the petition is to unblock the site. If you guys aren't following this story, it's something everyone in fandom should be aware of; it looks to me like a test run before they go up against AO3 next. You can read and sign the petition here.

And this has been Radio Free Monday! Thank you for your time. You can post items for my attention at the Radio Free Monday submissions form. If you're not sure how to proceed, here is a little more about what I do and how you can help (or ask for help!). If you're new to fundraising, you may want to check out my guide to fundraising here.

Another good show gone

1) I finished watching Halt and Catch Fire and wow, is this show overlooked. I haven't seen something this good since S5 of Buffy Spoilers ahead! )

2) This story about a new type of theater experience struck me because it's all about trying to figure out what makes a fandom tick.

3) Netflix may start getting into merchandise licensing. I was interested by this chart of top licensing companies. Most are toy, movies or sports, PVH seems to be apparel branding, and Meredith seems to hold a variety of properties. But one can see why Disney started snapping up properties like The Muppets, Star Wars, and Marvel not just for their creative licenses but for the more immediate revenue stream of stuff. Also, speaking of streaming services, Verizon isn't giving up on its Go90 project: "Web-based TV is becoming “a crowded field,” but it’s “absolutely critical” for Verizon to introduce its own platform, in part as an advertising vehicle for its AOL and Yahoo units""

4) This article (headlined Even smart people are shockingly bad at analyzing sources online) points out why fact checkers are so much better at it than even academics.

5) Nabbed from Petzi last week – states and countries I've visited. I hope to finish up the first map and add more places to the second in the next decade. Read more... )

Optional: If you would like your secret's fandom to be noted in the main post along with the secret itself, please put it in the comment along with your secret. If your secret makes the fandom obvious, there's no need to do this. If your fandom is obscure, you should probably tell me what it is.

Optional #2: If you would like WARNINGS (such as spoilers or common triggers -- list of some common ones here) to be noted in the main post before the secret itself, please put it in the comment along with your secret.

Optional #3: If you would like a transcript to be posted along with your secret, put it along with the link in the comment!

yourlibrarian: Buffyverse Top5 Classic Recs pumpkins (OTH-Top5Pumpkins-eyesthatslay)
[personal profile] yourlibrarian posting in [community profile] summer_of_giles
Are thoughts of Halloween creeping up on you? It means Classic Recs is coming too!

Next week at midnight GMT on October 28 (6 PM EST in the U.S. on Oct 27) we’ll be holding our 11th annual Halloween celebration through all the time zones until midnight November 1. This means five days for you to bring your all-time favorite recs of fics, vids, graphics, anything and everything fandom has produced in all the Whedon fandoms! All time periods before 2017 are eligible for posting and, as always, crossover content is A-OK, so get those lists ready!

We also want to alert anyone already familiar with us that following the movement of many people to Dreamwidth, either primarily or exclusively, we are encouraging posts to the [community profile] buffyversetop5 account here. So we hope to see names old and new here soon! Let us know if you have any questions.

So, it used to be that we hadn’t upgraded to Windows 10 because our IT department hadn’t cleared it as “secure” enough (it’s not that it wasn’t secure, it just hadn’t gone through the security affirmation process). Now apparently it is, since they upgraded me to 10. I’ve never really had 10; I decided not to upgrade my personal laptop, though for a while the laptop I used for travel had it. 

I know this is just me getting older, but I am weirdly suspicious not of Windows 10 as a system but of the Windows 10 aesthetic. Everything is too smooth and square. Things that should be rounded are pointy and things that should be pointy are rounded. Everything is well-animated and in soothing pastel greys. 

I come from an era where computers weren’t even MEANT to be soothing, where it was just accepted that they would challenge you visually as well as implicitly. And I’m not saying we should go back to a Windows 3.0 aesthetic or anything, I don’t want computers to be difficult, I’m just saying. It’s…

It’s quiet. Too quiet.

Plugin Problems

My Journalpress plugin is no longer posting things to Dreamwidth. I've seen reports that this is due to a change Dreamwidth made in their site security or configuration, but I'm not sure.

I'll be looking for solutions, but in the meantime, you can always find everything on the website at http://www.jimchines.com/blog/
