 My DW entry form keeps filling or something, even down to changing things BACK when I have edited them but go into a different field, including changing the date to 1st January 2015. I have turned of autofill forms in Chrome. THis is driving me nuts. I had to edit everything twice to get this one to work, and then the next one I did it was back again. This is going to be seriously unusable :-( It does it on Furefox as well, so not just a Chrome thing...

I am posting some of my diaryish entries from 750 words to Dreamwidth, in part to celebrate that i am here now and so there should be some relatively recent content. Some of the read a bit oddly though as they were written in about 20 minutes and are more or less stream of consciousness. I am not quite as mad as I sound in them. Probably.

Meanwhile I am debating whether to delete my LJ entirely or whether to keep it for reading the few things I still read there. I guess I have to keep it for a bit but am slowly deleting all the content especially any that links that journal to any other sites.

Also, does anyone know why the web update form here is keeping old tags and titles as default? It bugs me that it wants to post things as 'Project Controlled Descent' which was finished two years ago...

Geekhost seems to be down again, so if you need to mail me use the LJ address. I only read it in the evenings, though. If it's urgent you can always phone, though I doubt if anything will be.

I'm wasting my time clutching at straws

Yes, I'm bored enough to be doing that tagging thing. so for your elucidation: my use of tags:

beltane - and other Fire Society events
bizarro - creative writing, dreams, really strange links and other oddities
books - self explanatory
distressed - there's quite a lot of these, it's partly for my own sake so I can keep track of my depression
drumming - what it says
food - both food porn and healthy food/diet stuff
happy - just to offset the distressed tag
health - dieting, healthy living and any illnesses
knitting - which I expect to contain more extries in winter
link - only tagged for links I want to be able to find again
meme/survey - by which I mean meme and not quiz (meme's are the more interesting ones)
meta - like this one
music - there seem to be a lot of these
notes-and-queries - little geek advice requests and other questions asked of my flist
partying - including clubbing and party invites as well as reports
personal-history - stuff about my life before LJ, often in list form
plans - like schedule's but vaguer
poll - contains a poll
quiz - by which I mean quiz and not meme
rant/opinion - includes all politics and opinion
schedule - usually dedicated posts and not worth checking except the most recent one
travel - anywhere interesting I've been or am going
update - actual entries about what I've been doing
wishlist - so people can give me stuff

Update: Have also added films, lists and money

I seem to be more or less back, although I'm trying to read LJ less and I've trimmed my friends list a wee bit - hopefully without upsetting people. I've also made a default view which doesn't include most people from London, which is what I'll be reading in the day time. If you're not on this I will probably get round to reading your journal, but don't assume I've seen things you want me to see. If this makes you want to take me off any of your filters, fair enough (and when deciding what to filter me in on it's best to remember that I don't reply when comments are screened unless it's a quiz or something).

Phew. I hope that people still want to read me after all that.

like keep on acting out the same the way we act out

Just for you information, I never make a screened comment if I can help it. I sometimes make an exception for unhappy people asking for advice, but certainly not for a meme. If I accidently answer something and then see it will be screened I feel cheated and sometimes quite angry. I don't quite know why that is, and I don't want to blame people for screening comments, but does anyone else feel like this? Does it even make any sense?

This is me going off line. I won't have internet until late tomorrow at the earliest. Eeek!

It is all going to be all right. It is, it is.

My planet doesn't even go to the moon anymore

I'm going to try to stay off LJ today (ha!) because:

  1. I don't want to hear bad news from the US.
  2. I want to get my work done because things are insane at work and it's causing me stress-on-a-stick.
  3. When I get home I want to do more packing, organise getting this damn bed picked up, which is looking difficult and complicated, and attempt to relax.
  4. I also want to spend less time in front of the computer, because my back hurts all the time now.
  5. I will not be watching the news: I do not want to know.

I do get my comments in email, though, so nice reassuring remarks that are not about the US will be very welcome...

Just so that you know, Since I am not going to BiCon for the first time in 14 years I've unsubscribed from all the BiCon communities and won't be reading BiCon related cut-tags. I think it will be very good for me to have a year off and I don't resent you all going on about it, but if there's something you want me to see, don't hide it with BiCon stuff or I may not read it.

All this to say, what's it to you?

I feel depressed by the clique meme, and by the number of people on my flist that I don't know even a bit, so I'm having a bit of a tidy up, and I can't kid myself that I can just use a default view, because I have zero willpower. So my criteria go something like: do I know you? Am I likely to see you in the foreseeable future? Have you made sensible comments on my friends only entries or shown an interest in the stuff I put there? Do I like you? Please note that liking is only one of many reasons for keeping someone, you're welcome to let me know if you'd like to be added back, no gibbons were harmed in the making of this post, yadda yadda.

Maybe I'll get more work done at work now...

Yes, and now I'm posting by mail from my Treo while sitting in front of my computer at home. Does something strike you as wrong about this picture? (And yes, it is sunny outside)

Neat new feature

I just noticed that it's possible to mark some of your friends groups public, so now if you go to http://www.livejournal.com/users/purplerabbits/friends/individuals you can see all of my friends except communities and Jake the Rake even if you're not logged in as me. I don't know how much I'll use it, but it could be handy for people with a lot of communities in their friends list...

I'm now a bit happier with my journal colours, so all I have to do is wait till I get home and see what they look like under Windows. It now looks a bit like my bedroom, which is fine by me, but not to everyone's taste. And I even managed to do some useful work-type work...

Has anyone else noticed that the Web client now says, "Spell-check entry before posting (checker only supports US English)". Rar for some awareness that other languages exist! Sadly LJ has failed to provide a lot of entertainment today - are people all off doing actual work, or what?

I worked out that it costs me £9 a month to watch crap TV, and that's in a shared house. I don't know that it's worth it, but then, we're stuck with Telewest for a bit, and then Buffy comes back...

True colours

Bugger. My LJ now looks totally shite. That's what you get for dicking around with colours when you should be working and don't have enough neurons free to devote to the problem.

If anyone has any nice darkish or purplish colour schemes they'd like to share with me I'd be delighted - otherwise this may take some time. And hey, if you want to share your favourite overides while you're at it, do. I still don't understand any of this.
