It's Time to Change

Well my subject line says it all. I've been with LJ for several years, and
most of that time has been as a permanent member. Sadly, over the last
several months, LiveJournal has shown time after time that their users, and
the stability of their site doesn't matter. They've had more Denial of
Service attacks than I can count, and every indication is that they're doing
nothing to try to prevent things like this from happening in the future.
Also, if you follow the LiveJournal account on Twitter, you'll see a very
high emphasis on their contests and things rather than on site stability.
I've defended LJ in the past, and given them the benefit of the doubt many
times. I just can't do it anymore. If I saw that there was a noticeable
effort being made to improve things that'd be different. Unfortunately, to
me, this just isn't the case.

So, as of this morning, I've decided to make the move over to the new and
growing Dreamwidth Studios site. At the
moment, to join this community you do need to provide an invite code, and I
don't have any of them currently. However, many of the features that LJ
currently requires you to pay for are free with Dreamwidth. And? Best of
all? No annoying advertisements on the pages if you choose to have a free
account! So, all my entries and pictures have been imported to Dreamwidth,
and you can bookmark this page
to continue following my not so frequent entries.

I've really had a good time here on LiveJournal, and I've met so many truly
fabulous people here, but the time has come for a change. I hope to see
people over on Dreamwidth in the very near future.

Testing, Testing ...

I've been using the Twitterfeed
service to post my public LiveJournal posts to Twitter and Facebook for
quite some time now. Unfortunately, I'm really not satisfied with them
anymore. More often than not, my entries are one day out, if they even get
posted at all. So, I'm now trying a new service called If then, Then That. I've seen it in action,
and have been very happy with what I've seen. So, if all goes well, this
entry should be posted today, (that'd be Tuesday), within 15 minutes or less
after I send this email. Here goes nothing. Oh yeah, this will also depend
on how flaky LiveJournal is, and at the moment, that's pretty flaky.

Trivia for Monday

I'm trying something new today, and I'll be curious to see how it works. I'm doing Trivia completely from my iPhone, including this LJ post. So, let's see if I successfully copied the link. 8/10 for me today. I second-guessed myself and missed one of the questions because of that. Here are the questions, maybe.
