I write publicly on Words' End, which posts around here as [livejournal.com profile] w0rds3nd. I write here too, but almost exclusively under lock and key. If you want to read my stuff here, please leave a comment and say hi! This is postdated so it'll always be on top, and comments are screened.

Gosh, but I have some updating of this journal to do. But this post isn't that update.

If you feel like giving me critical feedback, positive or negative, on the kind of person you see me as being and the kinds of work you see me as doing, I'd appreciate a constructive comment on this post. Anonymous comments are welcome, and I've turned off IP logging. I'll turn it back on in a week or so.

If I've wronged you and you have a suggestion on how I might make things right, I'd appreciate that too.

Thank you.

Making this public for re-sharing purposes, but really this is local-ish -- say, New England to New York.

I'm still looking to rehome my two cats, 8 and 9, ish (one walked off the street, the other was a shelter kitty, so their ages are approximate). I've had them since they were each 1 or so. My allergies got a lot worse after I had Nico, and it's now time. Ideally, they'd go to a rural place where they could be indoor-outdoor. But there are many other fine options, I'm sure.

They are loving and smart and playful and not too destructive if steered in the right direction (frex, toward a scratcher). They are neutered/spayed, and have claws. I'm looking for a place that will take both of them together and NOT declaw them.

Aki, the older white cat with David Bowie eyes: http://www.flickr.com/photos/wordsend/tags/aki/

Nochka, the younger tiny runty feisty loving black cat: http://www.flickr.com/photos/wordsend/tags/nochka/

They both love humans. They're both middle aged, and health issues are starting to creep in, but nothing serious yet that I know of. They're up to date on all their shots.

If you know anyone who might want to take them in, please let me know. If you have family or friends somewhere rural who could ask around, that would be amazing. If you know of any services that could help me find a good home without handing them over to a shelter, please also let me know. If I find them a great home whose only problem is being able to afford their care, I'd kick in up to $50/mo toward it.

Yeah, this is heart-rending.

Thanks.

I should be writing about my life, which I haven't done in a while, but instead I'm asking a question.

I have a file structure as follows:

item_000
  FileOne.pdf
  dublin_core.xml
  contents
item_001
  FileTwo.pdf
  dublin_core.xml
  contents
item_002
...

The "contents" files are plain-text files without an extension. They're all in UTF-8, but they need to be in UTF-8, no BOM. What's a good way to do that?

Somehow, in transferring my iPhone to sync with another computer's library, I lost all my contact records. Did I have your info? Would you like me to? If yes to either or both, please leave a screened comment here.

Please feel free to link awesome people to this post.

Something Something, being a two-family house with folks who know and like each other, are seeking housemates.

Applicable to the entire house: queer, trans, POC, poly and kink friendly. The driveway parking is currently full-up, but there's always plenty of street-permit parking. The financial terms of the rooms will vary based on when the room is filled, and who-all is living in the whole house but would never (unless the rent is increased from the landlord) be higher than $660 and never be lower than $412. That is before utilities. But in good news on utilities, we share one internet connection across the two households. Men/women/both/neither are welcome.

Details! )

Another rare post: besides the feed for my personal journal, [livejournal.com profile] words_end, there's now a feed for another blog [livejournal.com profile] mindlace and I are running together: [livejournal.com profile] okno_feed. The actual blog site is here; and here is the first post, which explains its purpose.

If you decide to comment, remember to do that on the original site and not on LJ. That is: to comment, clicky on the link at the beginning of the post, that leads out of LJ, as opposed to the "post a comment" link.

If you are reading Words' End through its syndicated feed on Livejournal and want to comment, please comment through the link to Words' End, not through LiveJournal. This involves clicking on the link at the beginning of each post, and not the "comment on this" link.

If you do comment through LiveJournal, there's a good chance I won't see it; as there doesn't seem to be a way for me to get automatically notified of comments on a syn.
