I was going to ask, "Why is it pink?!" until I read the description, he he he.  Pretty cool!

I suspect that they were previously blocked by adblock and perhaps something changed before the list updated or something.  Then again, I don't really look at Twitter much!

Instructions for FireFox users:

Browse to your profiles directory.  If you are using Windows 7, it will be located similar to the following (replacing Virmir with your username):


(Or, if you use Pale Moon like me, C:\Users\Virmir\AppData\Roaming\Moonchild Productions\Pale Moon\Profiles)

You'll probably only have one folder in here, unless you mess around with profiles.  If you have more than one, the one with the most recent modified date is probably your current one and the one you want. 

In here, create the directory "chrome" if it doesn't already exist.  If it already exists, that's fine.

Inside the chrome directory, create a new text file, then rename it "userContent.css".  (Make sure you have extensions visible in windows, so you don't accidentally name it userContent.css.txt or something stupid instead.) If the file already exists, that's fine.

Open userContent.css in Notepad or your text editor of choice and pop in the following code.

@-moz-document domain( {
.is-promoted {
display: none !important;

Restart your browser and promoted tweets should no longer be visible!

Instructions for Chrome and IE users:

I dunno, just use FireFox or something.  Trees.

Remember, kids, death to all solicitors.  The halls shall run crimson with the blood of the church of the political door-to-door vacuum cleaner salesman telemarketer society.  No mercy!  No relent!

Looks like a good start!  I think your writing style has improved since last time.  Not familiar with the source material, but still get the gist of what's going on.  You don't need the lines saying you're switching point of view-- just add a line or something indicating a scene break.  (And that is third person, not second. Gray Fox Wink)

That's correct.  Priority one is going to be getting CF back up and running, then after building a large buffer and everything is good I will probably do some request topics, and if everything is still good from there will finally reopen commissions.

That's only a measure I've been trying with my right hand since using the middle finger for anything at all irritates it.  Pretty sure the way I hold pens normally is standard.

Might still be too early to say because there are definite ups and downs, however I think both arms have done slightly better in March compared to February.  I'm starting to very slowly increase the amount of exercises done with the right arm, for example actually moving the fingers a little without complications.

I'm going to continue with my current routine throughout April except I'm going to try allowing myself a second 1 hour-ish drawing session with the left hand only every week.  So that would bring the total drawing allotment up to about 2 hours per week (plus 5 minute scribble sessions at the end of my strict every other day exercise sessions).  Will check in in a month to report how it goes!

I considered trying one of those, however they treat the pain and not the actual problem itself.  So I'm afraid that if it does reduce the pain, I might get overconfident and end up injuring myself further because I'm not feeling as much pain which tells me to stop.

I am glad to hear that it does work, though!  This is an item I may consider in the future if I need to move to Plan D, that is I decide one or both arms definitely are not getting better and it's time to gauge how much I can do with what I have (which is a possibility with the right arm, however that decision is at the very least a few more months off).

Thanks for the recommendation!

I'll post my monthly update soon.

Yes, Dragon Warrior 7 took me some eight months to complete, and is the longest game I've ever played by far.  That's the main game only.  I'm not sure how much extra there is in terms of side quests, but I don't think a whole lot.  I didn't bother, he he he.  8 is decent sized and nowhere near as long.

I actually played through most of FF3 years ago and it is quite excellent, indeed!  I intend to go through it again and beat it soon.  I was aware of the infamy of FF2 and that is one of the reasons I wanted to check it out, he he he.  I'm actually enjoying it in a primitive piece of history sort of way.  It is definitely a very broken game, at least towards the beginning.  My party is actually way overpowered, he he he.

The NES Castlevanias are high on my list when I get my arms back!

Having just finished it, Dragon Warrior 3 was definitely my favorite in the series so far (having played 1, 3, 7, and 8 ).

Next on the no-arms disability list is Final Fantasy 2 on the NES.  Playing a fan translation on my flash cartridge.  Never played this one before!

I was taking anti-inflammatories for a few months but I stopped since they don't seem to be doing any good.

Amusing little short!  Definitely interested in reading more about this fellow!

Well, that's what you get for messing with that musical ice stuff!  TREES.

In all honesty, it was kind of depressing (even though you obviously deserved it).  I would think a constant battle between summer and winter with the losing side rejuvenating and then defeating the other to symbolize the changing of seasons all in the guise of a family dispute would be interesting though.

Post more stuff!

Right arm--no real improvement.  Although on the plus side I have been slowly increasing the exercises I've been doing from physical therapy (I had stopped completely for a few months to see if they were actually causing pain, but that was a mistake as the arm got incredibly weak during that time) and apart from squeezing the ball (which still causes significant pain if done more than just marginally), the arm is a little stronger now and not getting worse.

Left arm--perhaps some slight improvement, although really only the past week and there continue to be ups and downs, so too early to see.

The current plan is to continue as I've been doing throughout March except I'm going to start scheduling 30 to 60 minute drawing sessions for each arm once per week because it's not good to go too long without drawing and I don't think such short sessions spaced out like that will affect healing time much.

Actually when I do my exercise sessions every other day, at the end I've been slapping on a strict 5 minute drawing session with my left hand only (the right is not ready yet).  During the past two months I've almost got page 337 sketched!
