WTH?

Efffffffffffing Hell!

Well, that's 3 and a half hours of my life I won't get back. *sigh*

Got online tonight, opened my usual browser (Opera) and pretty soon, my GPU is running hot and the fans are loud. WTH??? I see this Opera Helper is using a lot of CPU. Weird. I try another browser - same thing. Either there's a Helper file using a lot of CPU or the browser itself is using a lot. What the eff???

I'm frantically searching online for whatever this problem is. Is it malware? I start doing a scan with my Avast software. But it's constantly monitoring me, so the system should be clean. What about that new download of PhotoScape I just got the other night? But that was from the Apple Store. It should be clean, right?

I couldn't figure it out. I tried a few suggested fixes. No change.
I could only stay with one browser open for a while and then I'd shut it down so my fans would get a break.
Then I started closing that Helper file process - that cooled things down, but when I re-opened the browser it would just run the CPU hot again. *sigh*

Eventually, I noticed something...in a couple of the browsers the site only2clicks.com (a visual bookmarking site) was shutting down with a white screen that said it had run out of memory. WTH??? Weird.

Then I opened Google Chrome and made sure only2clicks DIDN'T open with the browser's start.
I closed, then re-opened the browser...no more high CPU usage!!!!

I opened Opera again and instantly closed the tab for only2clicks and everything was fine.

So the problem is with that website, only2clicks.com! Geez!
Which sucks, because I use that site for all of my bookmarks, have for years now. It's had it's issues, but never anything like this! Crazy. So it looks like I'll be avoiding only2clicks for a little while. Hopefully, it gets fixed soon. Gah!

/ Returns you all back to your day/evening. :P

VanCon 2017: J2 Panel Animation

Was going through my VanCon photos a couple of weeks ago and came across this great moment (and much photographed one) from the main J2 panel. I realized I had a sequence of photos and they would totally work for an animation!

I apologize for the huge size, but I had fun making this all the same. Jensen giving Jared the finger, Jared bumping Jensen's shoulder, and Jensen acting like it hurt, and then Jared's reaction! Silly, silly boys! :P
