Hello, I know you say in this post that asking isn't necessary but I myself think adding people without asking first is really uncomfortable so :<
I'm a completely random person but you share some interests of mine and I would like to friend you! If you don't like to add random people, it's okay.

[identity profile] diplopod.livejournal.com 2010-03-01 04:38 pm (UTC)(link)
Haha, I understand. Of course you can friend me, go for it! /o/

But I'll warn you ahead of time, I'm really boring and post too much. Hope you don't mind.

I saw
your reaction to what happened on the meme this day, I mean
n somehow
don't know, it made me feel good
knowing you reacted that way, I mean. 's good.
Maybe it seems, okay, like I'm saying "congratulations, you're a decent human being"
but there's more to it than that, you ken? Sticky stuff.
'm sorry, I just wanted to say this
'n maybe I don't make no sense. I dunno'. m so tired.

Y...you saw that? Ahh, I'm so embarrassed now. /o\

I can't help it. I might be a wimp, but when people start picking on someone I care about it really sets me off. orz And my sister(maybe I should be calling her my brother, idk...) is transgender, so when they talk about it like that, I don't even...

You really need to go to bed earlier, man. You're going to make me worry more than I already do. :\

Heipä! I'm the non!Ardis from the meme, creeping over to your journal all stalker-y like because I really was obedient and went to bed before I got to read your last comment. BTW, don't ask why I started to write to you in two different mini threads. I have no idea.

Now! Since this already is creepy and stalker-y, isn't this just the perfect moment to speak about you getting naked? Yes, I thought so too. <- This is famous Finnish diplomacy, delicacy and discretion in work. You must feel very appreciated to experience it first hand like this.

Let me tell you some naked!stories: there's an old lady living in my neighbourhood. She goes to swim everyday as long as there's no ice. She gets to the beach, takes of her clothes, puts on the swimsuit, gets in the lake. Comes out, takes of the swimsuit, dries herself, puts on her clothes and goes merrily away. Notice how I don't mention any changing rooms... I think it's really sweet! My goal is to be just like her when I get old. Only with more cats and mumbling to myself.

And when the Google street view cars captured pictures of corpses or illicit lovers in other places, Finnish headlines were really indignant because they had taken pictures of some perfectly normal middle aged man who was sitting outside enjoying the peace of his own garden. Without no pants or underwear whatsoever. I like his life philosophy! If you can do it naked, why bother with clothes? You just end up taking them of eventually. Winter is the only reason Finns originally ever warmed up to the whole idea of clothes. Nakedness is such a wonderful thing, you should really overcome your sauna shyness and embrace your inner naked barbarian!

Mm, and when I wrote Mariehamn (or some random typo version of it... yeah, it was late. That's my excuse) I of course meant Åland. Failing at your own country's geography is a precious, precious thing indeed. It's just that when the boats arrive there they announce arrival in Mariehamn... Sorry Ålanders, one day I will learn that there's more to your island than the capital. But maybe I can make some amends by saying that I really love the capital! It's so idyllic, pure children's books material. Berwald and Tino may lack some upbringing skills but they sure give good genes to their kids. Unless Åland = Hanatamago/Blomsterägget/Kukkamuna. That could explain why it doesn't really wish to be independent and why it is demilitarized. The thought of a cute fluffy puppy leading the army is... interesting.

...Can you yet guess that I'm seriously procrastinating some work I should very badly do? Well - at least this time I managed to keep it all in one comment, thanks for the small mercies?

Hyvää jatkoa!

Hello! And no worries, I think you're being more cute than creepy/stalker-y if anything. o3ob

Going to be honest, I actually cringed more at the thought of someone swimming in what's most likely freezing cold water than changing in front of everyone on the beach. I can understand after warming up in the sauna, but... Brrr. And I heard something similar happened with the Google cars in Denmark! Well, nothing wrong with that. I have no problem with other people being naked, I'm just too easily embarrassed myself.

And I figured Åland was what you meant, and Google picked Mariehamn up pretty quick, spelling errors or not. S'all good! (And I can't even name/place all the states in the US, so we can fail at our own countries' geography together. orz) I actually haven't bothered to look into Åland much at all. But if Mariehamn is anything like you say, I guess I'll have to. Gamla Stad was beautiful too, so I trust your judgement. ♥ Haha, I do like the headcanon that Hanatamago is Åland. Then again, Hana isn't all that bratty and she seems to like Finland too much to be Åland. Oh well, it'd still be really cute.

This is so late, but get your work done! And talking in more than one comment is totally fine, especially when you're anon, 'cause you can't go back and edit or anything, so don't worry about it!

Speaking of editing, I hope you're not tracking this 'cause if you are, your inbox is going to get so spammed. Sorry! /o\ /edit edit edit

I wish we lived near one another. Then I could just lend you this novel when I'm done with it.

(Yeah, World War Z again. Still enjoying it, even though it's disturbing)

I keep trying to say more in this comment, but then I keep deleting it because it's sappy 'n dumb 'n mostly just stuff I think I've mentioned before, the whole, "I wish we could study together and mooch books off one another and have a geeky bromance" thing.

That's dumb but I'm not going to delete it because it's less dumb than how I'd originally phrase it.

I should probably go to bed instead of being mushy all over your spampost.

[identity profile] diplopod.livejournal.com 2010-12-11 07:57 am (UTC)(link)
Mnngh, sorry I took so long to say something. Got bombarded with tags on the meme and I feel really bad if I make them wait. (But now I feel worse for making you wait, so lose-lose situation. /sob)

But ANYWAY, the feeling's mutual bro. Don't worry about being a sap, I'd say the same things and then some if I actually had y'know... guts. :|

But hey, maybe we'll run into each other someday and we can do some of those things! It wouldn't be the same as actually living nearby, but I guess that just means we'd have to make the most of it, eh? I wonder if you even remember this, but I still wouldn't mind playing with firecrackers and having a bonfire with yuu. It'd be fun. Studying and reading and being geeks all day, then being a couple of pyros at night. ♥ Okay, now I'm getting sappy.

And yes, yes you should. Not that I mind you being mushy all over my spam post, but you have work tomorrow and you're busy so you should get your rest so I don't have to worry about you. Even though you're probably already asleep because I'm dumb and took forever to reply to this. ANYWAY, I'm going to bed too. G'night, bro.

And sorry if I said anything weird it's like 3 am and I get a little loopy when I'm tired. orzzzzz

I just want to hug you right now. Is that weird? I'm sorry if it's weird.

Did your finals go okay?

(Why am I even commenting - you're probably in bed. Or should be, at any rate.)

[identity profile] diplopod.livejournal.com 2010-12-14 08:53 pm (UTC)(link)
Maybe? I don't think it's that weird. I dunno, depends on how much you know is going on with me, I guess. I don't mind random hugs though!

Well, two of them did, I think. And I've still got another Thursday.

(I was! Then I slept until 1:30 pm. /so tired)

/rolls by

Feeling not so good right now because of Certain Things I came across when catching up with, uh, Certain Places. I have people I could talk to about it, but I don't want to dump all my whangst on them because I don't want to be a bother. Do you ever feel that way?

... and here I am, sort of dumping it on you, which isn't any better, really. Um. I think I'll leave it at that. I just feel comfortable around you. I hope you don't mind.

Er, anyway, never mind all that. Ah. How are you? Been able to relax now that school is over, at all?

(Come to think of it, maybe you're asleep, it's a little bit late where you are)

(Wait, what am I talking about? You never seem to sleep.)

[identity profile] diplopod.livejournal.com 2010-12-23 05:23 am (UTC)(link)
Ahhhh, I was afraid you wouldn't have a very good reaction to that! I would have warned you, but I think you would have caught up anyway. Don't worry, I doubt that jackass actually felt that way. They probably just got a rise out of pissing everyone off. (And even though I really think that's all it was, they still got to me. I had to get offline I got so angry.)

ANYWAY, don't be afraid to dump on me! You can always talk to me! I don't mind at all. But I guess I can't blame you if you don't want to, I'm the same way. I'm always afraid I'm bothering people when I complain...

But yeah, I'm alright. Could be better if my relatives would stop being such a pain in the ass, but I'll manage. But you know how it is.

Okay, so I figured out a way to make Windows stop installing that thing that makes my computer not start. Figured you might want a hand since you've had the same problem.

Sorry if these instructions seem super dumbed down. I can't remember how computer literate you are. (I'm not overly much myself, so)

Okay, I think I might have isolated the issue.
I don't know what version of Windows you're using, but anyway. This is how you get it to stop downloading the update - the one I /think/ is causing the problem.

Control panel - windows update
Sidebar: "change settings"
In the drop-down, select "Download updates but let me choose whether to install them"
OK, then restart the computer if necessary.

Back in Windows Update again.
Under updates were installed, select "view update history". It should show you which ones were successful and which ones failed.
Now, one of the failed ones might be this:
Security Update for Windows Vista (KB2555917)
That's the one that is giving me trouble. If it's also the one giving you trouble, it will be listed as "failed". Some others might be listed as that too, but this is the problem one.

With the computer set so that you have to tell it which updates to do, you can stop it from auto-installing this fucked one that way. Now, if you want to install the other updates as well, do as follows:

Go back to Windows Update. Click "X important updates are available". You'll see probably a few different ones, including that one I listed above. De-select everything and install them one at a time by selecting one and installing it, then restarting, lather rinse repeat, except KB2555917. Things should be good after that, though you might have to turn off auto-installation again after everything is done.

Haven't figured out how to install that one update without it making my computer not start, but ehhh for now this is fine.

[identity profile] diplopod.livejournal.com 2011-07-15 06:52 pm (UTC)(link)
Aha, thanks! This helps a lot!

I found my way to the update history earlier, but only a couple were listed as failed, but they were mostly from 2010. And there were so many updates in the last few days that I just gave up trying to figure out which one was causing issues. orz But I had a KB2555917 for Windows 7, so I uninstalled that. We'll see if it helps any.

And if you have any firewalls or security programs running, they might be the ones interfering with it installing correctly? They used to get in the way of mine until I got fed up with them and just got rid of them all together, since I don't go to any particularly sketchy websites anyway.
