So, I have this habit, where if I come across fic on my flist that sounds like I might enjoy, I just open it in a new tab. I generally open more than I can read, so once I get too many I transfer the links to a "to read" list. I started transferring some yesterday, but got bored and stopped. I just checked to see how many tabs I have open (in one of my *5* windows) and I have *67* open. Wow, that's a bit extreme, even for me. I blame all the gift exchange comms.


So, I've spent most of the day reading up on what people are saying about the OTW are saying. Mostly from non-fandom people, and it's kind of making me want to shoot things, but I was wondering:

What do you think about the OTW? Would you like an archive? A written fannish history? A wiki (OMG, I can't tell you how much I'd like a wiki for fandom, although I can see it being vandalized a lot)? Do you think it's a good idea to have a legal defense fund? If the OTW were ever to go to court, would you support them?

I'm planning on making a post sometime about how I feel about it, but I'm really curious as to what other people on my flist think about it. I think so far only one person on my flist has really written about it, but I spent a couple months away so could have totally missed something.

Also, I am having a bitch of a time working on a mysql database, any one know enough about setting up eFiction to want to help?
