This is the funniest fucking thing I have ever seen:



I better hear shoutbacks from all my Lovecraftian/asteroid-obsessed apocalypse junkies, yo. Where my peeps at?!

Seriously..."Pluto" is just a stray moon, people. Even the Mi-Go acknowledge that. And believe me, if anyone would know that, they would: they knocked the little bitch out of orbit around Neptune in order to emplace it conveniently at the edge of the Kuiper Belt, where most of their trans-stellar outposts (like Sedna, which is actually called A'qgwoth, and Quaoar, which is...well, even the Mi-Go called it Quaoar, 'cause that's a wicked cool name) are located.

OK, this is just weird. For well over a year now, I've taken to using my Gmail and Hotmail (and, to a lesser degree, my Yahoo! mail) accounts as my primary email accounts because I've had MUCH less troble accessing them than I have my various "traditional" POP3 accounts on Pegritz.com, hpl-laboratories.com, and so forth. But I keep checking those accounts anyway, because I do use them for a variety of purposes.

For the last year or so, I've been using Mozilla Thunderbird to read these accounts. However, since I installed the Office 2007 beta 2 on my desktop, I've decided to begin using Outlook 2007 as my mail reader just so that I can centralize calendaring, contact management, etc. since Waynesburg uses Outlook for shared calendars and the like. Anyway, last night, I tried to set up my various POP3 accounts in Outlook and...none of them worked.

In fact, for the last few weeks, even Thunderbird hasn't been able to read my POP3 accounts.

I went through all manner of testing and whatnot to see if there were problems with Outlook, with my mail server, and even my 'net connection. Everything checked out. So why the hell wasn't I able to access any of my accounts via Outlook or even Thunderbird? I could get into them via 1and1's webmail with NO problem, yet any local app simply couldn't connect. I don't get it.

However, on a lark, I changed the access protocols for the accounts from POP to IMAP. That was the one thing I hadn't tried.

And it works just fine. Using IMAP, I can access my accounts via Outlook and Thunderbird with no problems whatsoever.

I guess 1and1's POP server is nuked or something. Doesn't matter--the situation is fully resolved on my end, so I'm not complaining. :) Nonetheless, this is my first experience with IMAP, so as long as I can get my mail and read it, I'm straight.

Allright--STOP! Collaborate and listen:

I'm actually going out to Ceremony tomorrow night! [livejournal.com profile] aidinslevel and I are gonna be on deck, rockin' it, rollin' it, and just generally whoopin' it up since this is my last weekend before the semester starts and I have to be a Good Xtian College Professor. :)

I doubt I'll be getting Pegritz Drunk, though. My last Major Bender was two weeks ago at the Poison show and after, and my body still hasn't quite recovered--but that's okay. The Newscastle and the Heineken will treat me right.

Just for gods' sake: if I even mention the words "Irish Car Bomb", just look at me and say NO.
