Oh LJ. Why so slow? And why so quiet, where have all the cool kids (ie my flist) gone.

Have you been seduced by the pretty wiles of tumblr? Or has everyone got sick of the slowdown and moved to DW? (I really ought to get one of those.)

because they can't be bothered to let you know you have to go and look it up yourself:

14th August 2008: The end of Basic Accounts as we know them. (original post about what they were planning to do with basic accounts)

Changes planned to the Suspend journal punishment

Forced changes to your profile - Due September (I think you can look at it and see how it affects your journal by going through modify journal or something. I can't remember off hand)

And then from this post
- search for users by their email addresses (you may want to be setting up LJ-only gmail accounts then)
- a LJ-toys like feature which will allow you to track who is reading your journal
- ability to search your journal (but only if you're a paid/permanent/early adopter account)

LJ are bringing back Basic Accounts. Only they're not. They're bringing us slightly less ad-covered free accounts. And by the looks of things if you have a basic account which is ad-free at the moment, it won't stay that way for long. I say by the looks of things, because it really isn't clear. Fail LJ.


Due to His Lordship being made of fail I won't be going to see The Dark Knight at the IMAX this weekend. This makes me very very sad.


I need to remember to book my car in for its £140 warranty service. I don't know where I'm going to find the money to pay for it :( I don't get paid for another fortnight.


Work is so made of fail it's not even funny.

Bless them.

This week: let everyone on your friends list see what custom filters you've put them in for fun and frollicks.

Not so wanktastic for me unless you are offended that I put you in a filter called 'friends' - but that may not be the case for you. Of course, even though there is a very definite feeling against it, LJ will go with it anyways regardless. eejits.

I've just spent two hours writing out all my Christmas Cards. I think my hand is broked. Woes. They'll be hitting the post on Saturday probably, so expect them in about a week (oh the post office, and the queue behind me are going to hate me and my 32 cards that are going all over the world.

[livejournal.com profile] rivrea, [livejournal.com profile] chicklet73 and [livejournal.com profile] ill_elle: mysterious amazon packages arrived for me today. I say mysterious because I only opened them enough to pull out the packing slips to see who they were from. :D They are now put away nice and high so that I cannot be tempted by them.

[livejournal.com profile] reiyakittie: I also got your package today too. Thanks so very much!

Now I'm going to spread some Christmas cheer.

So, 6Apart have finally had enough and dumped LiveJournal. Not surprising really, after all we’ve hardly treated them and their stupid ideas with the respect they think they deserved. And after all they did introduce a lot of crap features (Sponsored v-gifts, those rubbish snap previews, news posts that contain no news).
We’ve been bought by a Russian company called Sup (insert cat macros here) who apparently run a Russian LiveJournal server.
Useful links:
The News post announcing it
[livejournal.com profile] lj_2008: Sup’s new LJ community which lists the things they want to do including:
[x] Having a body made up of LiveJournal users so that the company can listen to the needs of the community at large (apparently Brad is already on board)
[x] Improving some of the functionality

But, like with all LJ announcements lately it doesn't cover a lot of queries such as:
[x] Does anyone have any background information on Sup, other than the website listed on the news page?
[x] What happens to our journals, will the servers be moving?
[x] How can they ensure the security of our personal information, especially for Paid Account users who have to give LJ their paypal/credit/debit card details?
[x] Which country's data protection laws will we be subject too?
[x] Will they be getting rid of the rubbish 6A introduced?
[x] What's going to happen with the much-mooted policy documents that after nearly 4 months LJ still haven't produced (and this is after [livejournal.com profile] marta said last week that they were going to be working on it over the weekend)
[x] Are the current LJ staffers going to be sacked and replaced? (or will they be staying with 6Apart?)
(If any of this stuff has already been covered, can you link me to the threads, I couldn't face wading through 19 pages of macros and "FIRST elventy!!" at half six this morning)

Is it time to start backing up our journals and sailing for sunnier climes?
LJ-Book turns your journal and all it’s comments and pictures into a lovely PDF file which you can them print out and turn into a book. (Beware though, it’s very busy at the moment, I think I lot of people are backing up.)
LJArchive also backs up your journal and its comments but with the added bonus of letting you import them into any other journaling service that uses the LJ Open Source. (Unfortunately it doesn’t copy over your comments)

Bilbo says: thank you aunty [livejournal.com profile] chicklet73 and Scooter for my brilliant new toy. I lov it so much I was playing with it on the bed at 4.30 this morning. BRILLIANT!

I also add my thanks too. Thank you! (not for the cat waking me up at 4.30 this morning but for all the other wonderful goodies. His Lordship has already nicked off with the spicy pecans)
