I realized that I even more belatedly did not signal boost this here! THE SHAME. You still have a day or two to do it =D

These surveys will help two great folks as they put together a panel on sexism in anime fandom. You can read a little more about the surveys at a post on Altair and Vega. They plan to keep the surveys running past the con, as data collection for possible future projects, but the deadline for data to be used in the Otakon 2012 panel is July 20.
Research Survey For Otakon Sexism Panel 2012: This one is for any of you who’ve attended a convention. We’re trying to get a sense of how people feel at events and how they connect to the community.

Sexism in Cosplay Survey for Otakon 2012: This one is for you cosplayers out there. If you’ve cosplayed or do so regularly, we’d love for you to take the time to fill it out.

Thanks!
First:

A kitty in California needs a new home (willing to drive 12 hours): Itai's new home: In which I beg for my best friend's life (another signal boost with summary )

OccupyEverywhere: Open Letter to Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi (from a faculty member concerning the use of pepper spray on students at UC Davis)


Announcement!

So. My host, dreamhost, has decided to shut down all dreamhost.com subdomains and keep all hosted stuff on dreamhosters.com subdomains instead. They haven't given out dreamhost.com subdomains in ages, so this affects a small number of people. But those people are their oldest and most loyal customers. And now, as far as I've been able to tell and their support department has been able to tell me, that's it. My long stay with them is rewarded by having all pointers to my art — of which there are in the area of a thousand spread across several sites — be dead on December 1. That's it. Not even a redirect after that date. Just gone. The files will still exist, but will only be FTP-accessible, not web accessible.

I am not best pleased. I'm trying to see if they can do anything better for me, at all. But for the foreseeable future:

All links/references to my art will break in about a week.

I'll be trying to go back and fix links as I can, or whatever other solution I come up with. But that could take a while and I am pretty low on energy just now. Some but not all of my art is available on deviantart under justira.deviantart.com — I haven't updated that in a while though. I'll be doing what I can; I the meantime, my apologies :(

(dear AO3: y u no host my art :( )


And now, because I need something nice after all of the above:
