So, the whole warriors of innocence thing.

I don't give a flying fuck about the instigating party, writing about incest and rape isn't cool. Hell, wanting to read about it isn't cool either. Fanfic in itself is benign, if lame. Slash is gross and lame. Rape fic is dangerous and indicative, and in my opinion good reason to have a free account shut down or a paid account re-secured to permanent friends only. Seriously, if I spent all my time obsessing over stories where Cthulhu puts it in Dagon's pooper against his will, wouldn't you be freaked out? Wouldn't you not want to see?

Summarily shutting down every account with 'incest' or 'rape' in their interests (probably via a script) was a dumb way to go about it, but I'm glad 6 Apart is actually shutting down blogs that promote that kind of thing. Maybe it's partly because I think fic people are irritatingly obsessive and foul up /friendsfriends with their Snape/Dumbledore icons, but there's a line you've got to draw where fantasy overrules your judgment.

Hey, at least it was me that Isabel would babble at for hours on end. :p

In general, I agree though.

That, and she was a little more creative than your standard "two characters I obsess over make out. Ooooh!"

Definitely make sure that your laptop has USB 2.0 or firewire before you buy an external card at all. If so, the Western Digital MyBooks are really good (get the "basic" package unless you want disk-to-disk backup software), as are the Seagate externals.

If you don't have USB 2.0 or firewire, look in to getting an eSATA card for your laptop. eSATA is going to be a lot faster than any peripheral bus, and there's a lot of eSATA enclosures on the market.
