For the record, nine out of 26 posts that I've made this month (not counting this one, and excluding one that's me-only) were either friends-only or private. So just over 1/3 of my posts are visible only to people on my flist and (in some cases) filters.

Apparently there's a good chance that LiveJournal will disappear, so here's my insanejournal. Please friend me there.

I'm not giving up on LJ, but I think I'm going to start parallel-posting. The problem is that I have NO friends on IJ right now, so all of my friends-only posts will be me-only there by default.

If you have an IJ, please let me know so I can add you to my flist. If you don't have an IJ...please consider getting one, just for safety's sake? They're free, after all, and it really does look as if LJ could close down at any moment.

I've said this before, I think, but just in case:

If I should die, please feel free to distribute or use anything I've written - here, or on my website, or on my other blogs, okay? Do what you like with it. I'd like to think that some of my writing might survive me, if only for a little while.

Um, unless I actually sell something that could make money for Teri and/or Sebastian after I'm gone, of course. I'll keep the copyright on that.

Unlikely though either prospect (death or being published) seems at the moment! :D

It just occurred to me that I've written a number of book reviews here that I could easily copy over to GoodReads. So I've been doing that today, a lot. If you follow me over there, you'll see a lot of stuff that you may have seen here in years gone by. Sorry about that!

I should be working on some new fiction...soon, I hope.

My journal has been somewhat different, lately.

For one thing, the percent of friends-only and filtered posts has increased to about 50% in the past few months. But an even bigger change is the relative decrease in political posts (unsurprising, I suppose, now that the election is over) and the recent surge of book reviews.

Is this a good thing? A bad thing? Neither, or both? Feel free to tell me what you think, if you want.

By the way, I also just put up a very large post over on my Charlie On The Commuter Rail blog. The outer stairway to the commuter rail platform at Ruggles station is crumbling. I took my camera in today, and got some pictures and video. The resulting blog entry is pretty huge, but maybe someone will pay attention and forestall a tragedy.

Seriously, who repairs stairs with rust-susceptible parts? And after two years of the stairs being closed for repairs, couldn't they have fixed them well enough so that they'd last for more than sixteen months? I think you'll be surprised by the images.

I just wanted to wish a happy Thanksgiving for everyone who celebrates it. And for those who don't, happy Thursday!\

We're heading out to my brother's place for dinner with the family. I anticipate extreme fullness. :D

It's late. Why am I still up? Because today I was daydreaming and I suddenly thought that maybe LJ Archive would work for me again. Perhaps because of the server change, or...well, who knows? So just before I was about to turn off the computer and go to bed, I fired up LJ Archive and gave it a shot.

And it worked.

You'd better believe that I immediately exported every entry, in several different formats, and made sure to secure a copy of the complete archive in a safe place!

Argh, I was catching up on comments and *&@!ing LiveJournal went down. Could the new servers be unreliable? Wouldn't surprise me.

I've done a lot of book reviews lately, haven't I?

Hmm. Maybe I have developed a new interest, and hadn't realized it!

LJ back up

Well, that freaked me out. I wish we'd been told in advance that LJ was going to be down for four hours today while they moved their servers to Montana! As it was, I had to go a little crazy to find the information, and was actually forced to spend a little time on - ick - Facebook.

I know a lot of people on my flist have sent stuff or done stuff or zombie-pirate-bit-hugged me or asked me to do stuff with them on Facebook. I have to say, though, that I don't UNDERSTAND Facebook. And I don't visit that site more than once every three months. So please don't be offended if I don't bite your pirate zombie cat for peace or whatever, because I don't know what I'm doing over there.

Anyway, I'm now going to get back to getting serious about backing up ALL my LJ posts. Because the realization that they could simply disappear forever one day, and that I'm totally at the mercy of a Russian company that I don't trust is very scary to me.
