Has anyone else been getting spammed on old posts?

End of an Era

I've allowed my LJ paid account to expire. Why? I'm not really sure. Mainly because I use it significantly less than I use to. But then, almost everyone I know uses their LJ significantly less than we use to. Twitter and Facebook have become the champions of the interwebs.

I just can't get behind Twitter though. 140 characters? If I want to microblog, I'll update my Facebook status. I don't need constant reminders on my phone, even if I could figure it out, about what my friends are doing at any given moment. OH, I have an account, if only to prevent people from using my name as a Twitter account, but I never use it.

I'm on Facebook a lot more these days. I know some people who use Facebook for everything, even to the extent of not checking their personal email any more. I'm not quite that extreme, but I do use it for various uses.

The thing is, I just don't have the kind of time I used to. Five or six LJ entries a day? I can barely manage five or six a month now. I thought my life was busy before dating and moving in with a woman with three kids. But I can't exactly blame her and the kids for that, because I made LJ entries when I was in California in 2005, and I was living with a woman with FOUR kids then. But that was entirely different from this.

Still, on the whole, it didn't make a whole lot of sense to keep paying for something I wasn't using nearly as much as I used to. So thanks LJ, you served a fantastic purpose, and I'm happy to keep using you, but I won't be paying for the privilege any more.

New LJ Subtitle

Because "My Geek Fu is Strong" worked for so many years now, but I felt it was time for a change.

New subtitle courtesy of the ever-amazing Captain Kitchen!

Quick Question...

Why did you friend me?

(Obviously this isn't a question for people whom I've been IRL friends with for years. This is directed at people I've never met, or only know professionally, or what have you...)

Aftermath on Finite Earths Announcement

In order to keep my brain sane, and to get me actually working on this, Aftermath on Finite Earths has a new home! If you're interested, friend finite_earths and expect updates!

Hooray for writing!

Despite my best efforts, I couldn't find the "hundred words fanfic crossover" post I did last year or maybe the year before, mainly because last year my tags sucked hard, but at least were better than the year before, when they didn't exist at all.

I suspect I'll be tagging more specifically from now on, and likely at some point slog through the archives and tag them, too.

... aside from going Friends-Only, is there a way to block another LJ user from commenting on your account?

Only for the grotesquely and persistently clueless, you understand.

Anyone know how to add tags to archived entries?

Anyone else notice Shaun's LJ has been deleted? What's up with that?
