... and - perhaps for the 1st time ever - I don't think I'm going to manage to catch up with LJ.

If you said anything interesting, or if you said anything at all about Baitcon, let me know?

I'll screen. Tell me if you mind if I unscreen.

[Poll #1546705]

The last entry was Artist: Track - Album and that felt weird.

This is Ar: Al - Tr - though it's too long to fit, so I've taken out all the extra spaces and still can't fit it all.

There are people out there I was talking about this recently... http://languageoffood.blogspot.com/ (On LJ as [livejournal.com profile] language_of_foo) and, more particularly, the current top story on Ceviche and Fish & Chips:
http://languageoffood.blogspot.com/2009/11/ceviche-and-fish-chips.html

Good stuff.

Repeatedly I've pulled up my LJ client and then failed to post anything, though I initially had things I wanted to say.

This is mainly because I keep forgetting more than just a fragment of what I was going to say. More than once I've started a post and been unable to figure out how to make it say what I wanted.

This is all annoying.

So in lieu of real content, I give you a piece of music that I'm convinced that Tech Squares should be dancing to, esp. given our caller's musical proclivities.

Some reasonable number of people expressed Ooh!-ness on hearing that it existed... for them, and for all linguistically-interested folks, I point you at: [livejournal.com profile] ozarque.

... or at least the installations of such that I've come across...

With LJ, comments are a (more-or-less) useful way to have a conversation... they're threaded, you can (when things are working) get notifications of new replies to comments you've left, and so on.

With the other blogs that I've come across - MT, whatever powers blogspot (Blogger and Haloscan, it seems), and others - leaving a comment and reading comments are almost exactly the same as each other - a small (too small) window pops up with all the comments that've already been left, all left justified, one after the other, no indication of who's replying to who. When you want to leave a comment, most require an email address. Do they DO anything with this information? No. Do they send you mail saying "someone's left a new comment [they can't say "in reply to something you said", as there's no threading] on a post you showed enough interest in to contribute a comment to"? No.

In short, is there any way to see if someone's replied to (or near) you? No.

Pain in the ass crapular design.

LJ has its issues, yes. For the reasons above, though, it continues to be MUCH more usable for me.

It's also free and open-source... I gather some of the others are moving away from that?

So, LJ has a 'user'/account called status - [livejournal.com profile] status.

If you all friended this account, you'd have seen this post and you'd have felt no need to post about the back comments that were coming in to your mailbox over the last day or so.

There are many other useful things that you can learn by reading [livejournal.com profile] status.

I recommend it very highly.
