youtube's fight for a soul

So does anyone know if youtube had some kind of religious experience? Several vids I had on my favorites that were taken down are now up again and acting like they never left. That's--odd.

Hands up--anyone else notice a revolution? Because seriously, this? Is odd.

ETA: giandujakiss says youtube is bringing them back due to negotations with the copyright holders. This is possibly the first and last time I will say this--well done, youtube.

And in case this didn't get across, you really really really need to watch Map of the Problematique by silverautumn, SGA. It's amazing. I would kill or at least beg really humiliatingly for a downloadable in HD, because there is nothing about this one that isn't awesome. She catches every damn beat and the cuts of the city coming up from the water are not to be missed. She also did my favorite Children of Dune vid, Hey Jude. Just--wow. I mean, seriously, wow.

so this will be my life for a while

So I started the task of adding my fic to An Archive of Our Own, which I also need to add two geocities-killed archives to. Which is--gah. I mean, not that it is not awesome here, trust me, it's just I went to check how many fic I am looking at adding.

My list is highly outdated. Like, I haven't updated it in a year and a half, and like, six or so fandoms. All but Merlin are formatted (two Merlin are formatted), but the thing is? I have to redo my graphics to add fandoms and I can't--I can't face that.

I also want a tag based program for my website so I don't have to deal with this. Indexes dynamically created! Manna from the sky! But I want to do the coding myself for the stories and the site, because yes, it's crazy, but two things zen me out besides writing--coding and recoding. And organizing my iTunes playlists down to grouping by whether or not I liked the song because it was in a vid first.

Today I don't want a pony. Today I want to magically understand complex Perl scripting so I can use it on my website.

Um, for the curious, my work is here. It's--not much. I'm importing my website in sets of ten--yeah, that's not going to take forever--and in between adding the fic that is LJ only. I just don't see how this won't end in me going insane, tbh.

*paws weakly at archive* It is shiny! SO SHINY. Except--like, three hundred and thirtish something stories. I do not know that I can face this.
