My reminder woke me up at 2 about the appointment I'd cancelled. I still need to reschedule the orthotics fitting appointment. I'll do it when I have braincells.

Last night I ended up finally cutting the silver ring off my finger because it had been causing some nerve impingement for quite some time, making the fibro/tendonitis in my right hand worse. I wasn't thrilled, but I couldn't get the ring off otherwise. There will likely be a dent in my finger for a few weeks until things repair themselves.

I was hoping to get a little done on the upcoming Samhain ritual, but just didn't have the wherewithal. I didn't go to bed this morning until nearly 8:30. I didn't get out this evening to the AFK because I was just too tired. The day was largely taken up with doing some dishes and spudifying in front of the computer reading fanfic, because I couldn't find the brain cells to do anything else.

Tomorrow Qi from the steampunk group is coming by for tea and to see some of my photos from Europe. [ profile] gra_is_stor informs me that she's done some recording of the Gaelic prayers from Circle of Stones and hopes to do some more tomorrow evening at some point. As soon as the sound files are available, I'll let people know. C in Arizona updated my Preserving Shrine website yesterday with info about Fireflies at Absolute Zero so, for the moment, it's got everything up to date. I'll update again when the sound files are available.

My arms hurt. I need to work on the Samhain ritual. I got a nice, supportive note from one of the folks from the schmooze about my departure. This pleased me. We'll probably get together at Travelers from time to time after my VA appointments - we used to see one another at the CapHill Travelers when it was still open.

I'm very tired. Off to bed. I may read a little bit before I sleep, but it's definitely time to crawl off between the sheets.

I didn't write today, but it wasn't a complete fail. I did get some advice on working on my Preserving Shrine webpage from the person who said she'd help me out, and did update it myself now that I have a clue what I'm supposed to look for. I still have some work to do there, but I've fixed the broken link for my ogam book, removed the calendar item that has gone past, and redirected links to my publications page over to my Searching for Imbas publications page. I have a lot of other work to do, but those were the major things that desperately needed dealing with Right Now. I think I still need to add a link for the ebook edition of my ogam book; I can't remember if I did already. Brain holds stuff like a steel sieve. I know what I did was work, but it feels like I didn't accomplish much.

I just got back from a trip over to the grocery store -- I have guests coming this weekend and need to be able to feed them something. I didn't get everything I needed but I at least got enough that we'll have a reasonable choice for what to do. I got a call from mom today but the phone didn't ring. Sometimes the reception here is spotty and calls don't come through. Sorry mom! I'll try calling you tomorrow.

The person I had the discussion with about ebooks yesterday came over to my LJ and started to reply to people, then deleted his comments and his account. He declared elsenet that he'd deleted his LJ because he wasn't "an emo teen or a Russian." He had declared in his conversation with me yesterday that if I asked anybody, at least 90% of everyone would agree with him that ebooks should be free if you buy a print copy. Strangely, zero percent of the people who actually responded to my post thought ebooks should be free if you bought a print copy. Unsurprisingly, the people responding are pretty much all artists, musicians, journalists, and writers. You know, the folks who are most affected by theft of electronic media. Funny how that works. I still maintain that just because you can find files of stuff out there for free doesn't mean you should steal other people's work.

Anyway, I had no creative energy at all today. I watched a dvd of Russian animation, but dealing with CSS and HTML for several hours was enough to burn everything else out of my brain. I'd say I'll try to write tomorrow, but that's kind of unlikely. Maybe I will get some reading and research done. If I do, I'll count it as good for the moment. In the evening I'll be heading out for dinner with steampunks then picking up [ profile] gra_is_stor. Sunday, Geordie's coming down from Vancouver on the 2:15 into Everett and we'll pick him up down at the depot. Monday is the CR schmooze.

I put up a page on my Searching For Imbas blog that contains all my books and anthology contributions and current links for them. Where books are out of print or more difficult to find, I included links to ABE book searches for that title or edition. Most links will go directly to a publisher's website if it's available, particularly for Bibliotheca Alexandrina and Megalithica publications.

The link to this page is also on the sidebar of my LJ here, in place of most of the individual links for particular books with my work in them.

I intend to continue updating this page as new publications come out, as soon as links and cover images become available.

My webguru has now reformatted and added the Samhain Feast ritual link back to the front page of The Preserving Shrine. Please drop by and take a look!

With the release of my new book and the upcoming release of the CR FAQ as a hardcopy book, I'm pleased to announce that my web page has had a serious restructuring. Thanks to the generosity of [ profile] cruitire333, the front page of The Preserving Shrine is now entirely different in appearance and content.

This is the first stage of a much larger site renovation that will eventually be moved to a different domain. The articles, with the exception of the materials on ogam, will remain available on the inisglas website. Once the site is moved to a new domain and the pages are updated to reflect the look of the front page, the inisglas site will redirect all previous links to the new version of the page. If you have a link to any of the articles on the current version of the webpage, the links will still work -- this is particularly important for things like the Cauldron of Poesy article, the ethics article, and the article on Airmid, but it applies to the rest of the material as well.

I'll be sure to keep people posted as changes occur and to let you know when and if you need to change links from your own pages. Please let [ profile] cruitire333 know what a fabulous job he's doing. I've been frustrating the poor guy to death due to the inevitable IM-based miscommunications about exactly what it is we're doing and he's been incredibly patient with me. Thanks dude!

Yep, I've finally bit the bullet and updated at least the front page of the website with information about the ogam booklet Not Your Mama's Tree Ogam and buttons for ordering that and online ogam readings via Yahoo Instant Messenger. All you have to do is click on the button and your order will be emailed to me. If you're wanting an ogam reading, I'll email you to set an appointment. If you're ordering the PDF booklet, I'll email it to you right away.

I've also included a link to the CR FAQ, finally. I feel vaguely accomplished now.

Off to work on the ogam book.
