Ubuhduh? But.. WHY?

So, a power outage at work has seen me bail from the dark boring dungeon and come home. Thus, there will be no War and Peace today. Yes, I hear that collective sigh of relief. So, in lieu of that, I bring you:

Everyone at my place of work has their own coffee mug. Due to the nature of the place, mugs disappear periodically, and it's become traditional to have a mug that is individual, easily recognised and uniquely you. How do you think I'm doing?

It was a gift from my colleague for the Secret Santa thing last year. And it occurred to me that while junyr's post asking for photos of people was a cool idea, I know what most of you look like. So, if you want to, have the wherewithal, and the time, and can be bothered, please to be taking a pic of your mug and posting it for me, so I can see what it looks like. Does your mug match your personality? Who has the weirdest? SHOW MEEEE!!

I like this idea (courtesy of misslynx). A potential way of file sharing while still making sure artists get paid, and cutting out the record labels. I'd sign up. I also particularly like the quote from Trent Reznor. I'm adding him to my list of people I'd like to have dinner with.

Finally, it seems that the Kiwiburn Wikipedia page has been flagged for deletion. "No big deal," I hear you say. Except, well, it seems that the same guy has flagged the pages of 8 other Burning Man regional events as well, including Recycled Rainbow, InterFuse, AfterBurn, Ignition, NuTopia, EmoTAZ, Recompression and Critical Massive. It would appear that Realkyhick has a beef with BM regionals, and is attempting to take the pages down en masse. If you care, know Wikipedia well enough to do it, and have some time, please would you go look and see if there's anything you can do to help keep these pages up? The regionals don't generally advertise due to a principle of non-commercialism in the BM ethos, so references on Wikipedia and other network-type sites are important for them to gain traction internationally. Nobody had heard of Kiwiburn till people started talking about us on the internet. Please, help if you can.

Other than that, have an awesome day. I'll be 'working from home' - except for that bit where in order to do that I have to send work home from my work computer, which wasn't going as of when I left. Oh well.
