Friendless

I don't know if this is a general problem, or not. My friends page won't load. Actually, it loads, but only with the message that I have no friends defined. Checking LJ Status, I find only a cryptic message from Evan; "I'm looking into it, and the proper people have been notified." So, I don't know if that has anything to do with this situation, or not. Hmm. Never a dull day.

UPDATE: 17:44
I went off line, closed my browser, came back on line, still no friends page. I can see other people's friends pages, so it probably isn't a general problem. I've put in a support request, because I sure can't figure out what it is myself. Could it just be LJ's way of telling me to write more and read less?
Feh. Stupid computers.

Feng Mengbo

I usually don't post links to things I haven't seen myself, but this is a special case. Chinese artist Feng Mengbo has three short animated films called Phantom Dreams at this web site. They require Macromedia Flash and downloads of 5-7 megabites. Since I have such a slow connection, and flash tends to crash my feeble computer, I haven't gone to see them. But I have seen a still from one of the films, and it looks a lot like anime, only perhaps a bit darker. So, I decided to post about it, just in case anyone with better equipment or better access than I've got would be interested. If anyone checks it out, let me know how it is.
