jcollie719: (AFA Chapel)
Still no federal tax refund. I'm not worried at the moment because I don't have any major expenses due this week. My next payday will be on Friday.

I never thought I'd ever have to say this, but... R.I.P. Rocky Mountain Fur Con. I didn't realize problems with the con ran deeper than just fear/hatred of certain groups. It turns out MAAAC, the organization that ran RMFC, had lost its tax-exempt status years ago. Also, the head of MAAAC sent a Cease and Desist letter banning someone (who wasn't even going to attend RMFC) for bringing a gun threat to the staff's attention.

A group is now working on a replacement con for 2018. I've heard the names Mile High Furry Weekend, Mile High Furry Con and DenFur being proposed. Leaders of other cons are mentoring the group to get things started. I'm sad about the loss of RMFC as I've been attending since 2010, but I look forward to a new and (hopefully) better-run convention.

I might need to buy a new digital camera if I can't find a specific part for my current one. The tab holding the camera's battery in place broke about a month ago. Now the camera only works when it's in its charging dock. HP no longer supports the camera (a Photosmart R817,) so buying a new one might be better. I still have the waterproof camera I bought for my Grenada cruise as a backup.
