I have...

Apr. 8th, 2008 11:24 pm
... a cold sore at the very back of my throat. Dr. Hanley isn't as loose with the script pad as Dr. Costa is, though, so I'm going to have to wait for it to heal (or go back next month: Heh, yeah, it's still there and still hurting...). Dr. Costa gave me an antiviral last year when this happened. Dr. Hanley, however, just gave me an antibiotic in case it's bacterial, and not viral.

It's viral. I know it is, because it's almost exactly the same as last year. But I'm taking the antibiotic anyway. I HATE it when doctors give me long courses of antibiotics. Because when I get a bladder infection, they give me these 15-day antibiotic courses, and I stop hurting after 5. When you have the attention span I do, it gets REALLY hard to remember to take that shit. I've had a low-grade bladder infection for MONTHS at a time, because it would get painful and bloody, and they'd give me 15 days of antibiotics, and I'd take 7 days worth, and the infection would hang around just below the surface- not really causing MUCH discomfort, but CERTAINLY letting me know that it's still there.

Well, I never finished the antibiotics from the bladder infection when I had gastritis in February. I sent Cal out to get me cranberry juice last night. Yes, I'm taking the Z-pack. It's FIVE DAYS. JUST the way I FUCKING like it.

And now... ugh. I want to stay up and do the paper that's already 2 days late, but you know what? I'm exhausted, my throat and ears hurt, and I want to go to bed.

Oh, and I have an Emerald on Treasure Trooper now. Woot woot! Doesn't do anything but look pretty, far as I can tell, though...

Cramps aren't as bad today, but my throat is KILLING ME. I have a fever and I can barely swallow. The pain's in my ear now, too.

People have such a sense of entitlement. Someone on Treasure Trooper is bitching because they reversed referral earnings because one of the referrals was caught giving fraudulent information. Even though TT's payment for those offers were reversed, this woman thinks it's bad business ethics to reverse HER "earnings" too, since she had nothing to do with it and it came from a "purchased" referral anyway.

First, if TT paid referral earning for fraudulent activity EVEN THOUGH they aren't getting paid for it themselves, it would probably bankrupt them in a month. The problem with GPT sites, I've discovered, aren't that the sites are scams, but that MANY users attempt to scam THEM.

Second, it's NOT bad business ethics. There is NO business ethic that says a company is obligated to violate their own terms of service for you. When you sign up, you agree that TT isn't obligated to pay you ANY referral "earnings".

Finally, when you "purchase" (IE earn the 8 pearls you need to be able to get two unrefereed members, which you get from bonus games ONLY) referrals, they are random people who signed up without a referral. TT doesn't register accounts and do offers to give you referral earnings and they can't be held responsible for the referral not doin' it right.

In other words, here's a tissue: cry moar. It's nice that you've gotten even $13 from pearl referrals; I have 12 pearl reffies and don't even have $3 from them. Stop whining about it. It's money you didn't have to do jack shit for.

All right, so I say I'm willing to give SUP the benefit of the doubt after Mr. Nosik's apology and claim that he was misrepresented. Yet the news outlet who did the interview has posted the audio of the interview and several people who claim that Russian is their native language (including some who, based on appearances, live in Russia) have said that they listened to the audio and he did indeed say everything the translations said he did.

On the rebuttal article on the news outlet, Mr. Nosik objects in the comments to the audio being released because, according to Yahoo Babelfish, he said things he wasn't prepared to say publically in it. (This was after the editor-in-chief posted a comment in his apology entry asking if he objected and got no response- at least not to that comment.) In response to a comment SOMEWHERE (there is only a screencap) he apparently answers, "Did you use the word "blackmail?" with, "No, the interview wasn't done in English."

The Days of Our Livejournals...

There are reports of anti-homosexuality ads popping up. This is, thusfar, hearsay. That is so, so drastically STUPID that I'm going to say "pics or it didn't happen" to this one. I'm also not going to let this one bug me, unless a statement is made that LJ chooses their ads, because a few months ago on Gaia, there was an ad that included malicious code and LJ had no fuckin' clue- the ad servers all denied that it was coming from them and refused to identify which ad it was. So that one might not be all LJ's fault. The fact that the filter was blatantly homophobic in some aspects is probably coincidental to this.

In other news, I just got $17.50 from Treasure Trooper for fuckin' free. Yes, I have to keep in mind that there's a fraud alert on my credit reports now, which will be a hassle if I want to apply for credit. But you know? $17.50 for a service that does all the credit protection work FOR me and right now, it's FREE? Seriously. It doesn't appear to be a free trial, either.

Nonetheless, I might contact them in a few weeks with concerns that it's not actually FREE free and if it's not, cancel then. Either way, I have the e-mail saying that the payments will be $0.

That offer also put me over the top for gold coins to start the treasure hunt. Now I have to get 20 moar. D: But I already have one of the objects needed for it, so that's all good.

I kinda wish this was the first one I tried, because it's FUCKING fun. But you know, I guess I wouldn't have gotten into these programs if I didn't do the horribly simple one first.

I'm gonna look into the tutorial on how to maximize earnings in a lil' bit. Gots me some homeworks.
