well isn't that just peachy...

library is opening late today because some of the lighting is being repaired on the entry level and since there's no natural light it's a health and safety violation to let people in to work on that floor. I'm the floor above that so it's not a problem for my work area, but the thing is, and I get that it was probably the only thing they could do but, they didn't tell staff about this until 4.30 yesterday evening. With flexi time a lot of staff leave at 4, I had an appointment and had actually left just before 3, so everyone who wasn't here at 4.30 is what... just expected to work in the dark? What if lending staff (the issue desk is on the entry level) don't know about this and come in to work at nine? Where are they going to work until the place is open? (And we'll ignore the fact that my department is hideously short staffed right now because that's so not the point.) The people in charge here couldn't organise a piss up in a brewery. It's as simple as that. okay so it looks like it's all fixed now and it's not 9am yet. I'll forgive them. This time.

*sigh*

And dammit! I just saw charmax's latest vid listed on spnnewsletter - I downloaded it yesterday and haven't watched it yet! I love everything charmax does whether I'm involved in the particular fandom or not so I kinda already know I'm going to love this, but I wanna watch it now!

Okay then, I'm going to try to figure out just why this office feels like the Antartic temperature wise and then get some writing on OFWI2 done. I think it's safe to say that I am not going to get my Dark!Xander fic done, it just refuses to be written so I'm not going to stress over it. If something comes up I might just manage it but right now... nada.

(Randomly I just went to check my in tray to see if anything had been put in there since I left yesterday and the damn cleaner has lined it up with the edge of my desk. I have it an angle for a reason - so that I can reach it! Yes my desk isn't the tidiest in the world but I have everything where I need it - please, Maureen, don't move anything! (especially since she hasn't actually *cleaned* the desk, she's just lined everything up *neatly* around the dust bunnies...)

Oh!Oh! ETA I have a vidding question that I was going to email thedothatgirl about (as well as about the site, sorry I flaked on that!) but knowing me I'll forget until 6:55 tomorrow morning again. I have Premiere Pro which is what I like using, but it's on my laptop which is currently not at my house, so I was going to use WMM to pull something together in a draft format to see if the song/clips will work together (and then do it again on Premiere) but... when I try to import the .avi it tells me the codec can't be found so the file can't be imported. Now, I've played the file on the computer, multiple times actually, so does WMM need additional codecs than are required to view the file? Should I change my default programme for viewing .avi files from BSPlayer to something else? Anyone got any advice? (WMM is opening .wmv files fine, it's just .avi's it's refusing point blank to open). And... possibly connected to it, I can't open that file in ImageReady either, something about the QuickTime plugin not being available. Help?

and another edit, because my brain doesn't function right, you know this already A while ago I made this icon and others like it with similar colouring. I don't know how I did it... I do know that the original screencap was really dark and it was before I started using colour burn layers (or Overlay layers) so much, I love that colouring and want to replicate it, and it annoys the hell out of me that it's one I made and I've forgotten what I did. Anyone have any ideas?
