stupid user pics

Sep. 3rd, 2007 | 09:21 pm
mood: annoyed

When my account expired from paid today, all my extra user pics become inactive (even though I still had almost a year's worth of time paid for those). Some LJprogram decides which ones become inactive, and there was no way for me to alter that, even though I could see all of them. So I started deleting the ones it named as active that I knew I didn't want. It seemed to then simply add new active ones from the bottom of the list. Ugh! So I deleted every user pic I knew I didn't want. Only later did I discover that all those would have remained visible in posts and comments had I not deleted them; they just weren't useable. ARGG!
All it would take is a simple option, "make inactive". Buggers. Now I'm down to seven, just to get to the six I wanted. And I still would rather have the 7th rather than 6th. Screw it.

So Long LJ

Aug. 7th, 2007 | 12:27 am
mood: wistful

I just turned off my automatic payments.
I finally caught up on what's been happening on LJ lately and it sickens me. Thank you,springheel_jack, for posting so extensively on it.
I'm not sure where I'll go. I do love my friends list. But I can't support this company.

I do have a zaadz account, as yet unused, as it is a wee bit omphaloskepsistic. (Or, in a phrase Ron Rosenbaum recently used in reference to something else, "all-kumbaya all the time". Love that.)

Oops. An hour or so later, evidently blogger is my choice. Why'd I check it out? Because that's where John Rogers posts, and I've always adored him, his style, and his blog's simplicity & functionality. Months ago I found my new community here, where, although Toby Stephens has served as a sort of nucleation site around which we've clustered, the bonds formed are much solid than mere fandom for a film & theatre actor, no matter how dashing he might be. [Edited to add: to all the Google Alert-ers ]

So I guess this is goodbye, of a sorts. I didn't expect it to be, when I sat down here five hours ago. (Christ, I'm thirsty! And I haven't slept more than three hours in the past 48. Going off the SSRI to see if eliminates the vertigo is not working.) Where was I? Oh yes. I expect I will still be reading/commenting on my Flist for quite a while, at least until you all have feeds I can subscribe to elsewhere. I am sorry that this LJ community experiment didn't turn out the way it seemed so many of us hoped, even those of us who arrived late to the party. If anyone does find a good place for sustaining this kind of environment (without the Stasi), please do invite me. I make absolutely wonderful appetizers.

Growing pains

Aug. 6th, 2007 | 09:51 pm
mood: homesick at home

This makes it easier to think about leaving. Although the only real reason would be to be closer to the kids as they grow up. I hate being so far from them. I nearly wept this morning when I channel-surfed past to Mighty Machines. (Jacob's favourite show, not this episode, a better one, with DIGGERS!)

The newest xkcd is more disturbing than funny (not a complaint!), but this comment thread cracks me up.

Always suspicious of the accuracy of such tests, I can't help but try every one I come across. Strangely enough, they always have the same result.

As seen on zed_pm
When you see this post, quote from Doctor Who on your LJ.

The Doctor: Aw, I wanted to be ginger! I've never been ginger! And you, Rose Tyler! Fat lot of good you were! You gave up on me! [Rose looks annoyed] Ooh, that's rude... Is that the sort of man I am now? Am I rude? Rude and not ginger.
