Hell Week

Before I get completely swamped again because it's "hell week" for the theater production at school, lemme point you to a few things going on.

•Snarry-a-Thon is going strong over at [community profile] snape_potter. New entries posting today at noon or check out the Week One Wrap-Up here to get caught up on what you've missed.

[community profile] weasleyjumpers is collecting prompts for their first fest! If you've got any suggestions, head over to the prompting post at DW or LJ.

[community profile] hp_may_madness is back! *\o/* I am hoping this will help me get back into actually writing something again. I can't imagine I'll manage to post every day but we shall see.

Last, here's a sneak peek at Belle and Beast from yesterday's "tea party" event. They've all been working so very hard. I can't wait to see the show!

Beta-Reading Follow-up and Apology

Hi. About a week or so back, I made a request for beta readers, and a number of people responded. I'd like to thank those people, but due to various factors (brain-weasels, oncoming deadline, brain-weasels, etc) I've decided not to go ahead with the process of beta-reading. Thank you all for your generosity in offering your time and services, and I do apologise for not letting you know prior to this.

Why I Think Mind Uploading Is Not Likely To Happen Any Time Soon

Put simply? I don't think mind uploading, or the immanentizing of the eschaton or the storage of brains in computers or anything similar is likely to happen any time soon (or indeed within either my lifetime, or the lifetime of anyone alive at this period) because I'm mentally ill.

Stay with me, there is actually a connection between the two of these, and it isn't just "me being crazy not to believe in the chosen Rapture of the Nerds".
