I just heard on NPR that LiveJournal was taken over (apparently some time ago) by Russian pornographers. Is that true?

Just a note to remind readers that the vast majority of posts here from now on will be friends-only. If you're not a nut or a stalker and want to be added to my flist, drop me a line or comment here.

I wrote six reviews on Yelp of places that we went to in Boothbay. I'm going to post copies of those reviews here. Is this going to be a problem for anyone? Should I make them private, or post them behind an opt-in filter, or something like that?

Private

Sixteen of my last twenty posts are private, viewable only by me. I've discovered that I write far more, and far more freely, when I know that nobody but me (and maybe someday Sebastian) will read what I write. That's quite interesting and unexpected.

The down-side is of course that nobody can read or comment on those posts, but that's a relatively rare occurrance anyway.

I'm actually very surprised at how much more I'm writing now. I even started a new poem this morning! I considered making the whole journal private, but that seems excessive. I'll just play it by ear and see if I can work out some sort of balance between private and non-private posts, I guess. 75% private is probably a little excessive.

It would be interesting to generate some numbers showing the ratio of private, friends-only, filtered, and public posts in a journal. I wonder if there's an online tool that can do that? Or I could just add it all up by hand. But that would be tedious.

I've noticed a problem viewing old posts using tags. For example, I have a tag for posts about my son (http://bobquasit.livejournal.com/tag/sebastian). These date back to 2003. But when I'm viewing them and try to go back ("Previous 20 entries") past http://bobquasit.livejournal.com/?skip=380&tag=sebastian (which is March 2005), I end up at a single entry for March 2, 2005 - and there is no "Previous 20 entries" link.

The same thing happens when I just try to view old posts in aggregate, rather than individually. It's impossible to "skip" more than 380 posts. Is this how it should be?

Since the tone of politics seems to be changing in the USA, and since my political posts are likely to become less popular (or more annoying; your pick) under the new regime, most or quite possibly all of my political posts going forward will be made under my Politics filter. It seems a bit strange that I am feeling forced to climb inside a virtual bunker under these circumstances, but I can't deny the reality of what is going on; dissent is clearly going to be far less "acceptable" from now on. I don't want to have to worry about being flamed or having flist issues every time I make a political post, so I'm going under the filter.

This will eliminate my future political posts from search engines and the public view. Yes, this bothers me. No, I don't see a practical alternative.

If you want to be on the Politics filter, let me know. Unlike most of my other filters, however, I will not be automatically adding anyone who asks to be on it. Sorry, but if I feel that I'll have to worry about pissing you off, that would defeat the purpose of the filter in the first place.

Twelve or thirteen people are currently on that filter, by the way. I'll probably do a post on it later today; if you see it, you're in the filter.

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.

Ever wonder why someone has de-friended you? And then realized that you'll almost certainly never know?

We arrived in Disney World on Sunday morning. We left for the Disney Cruise on Thursday morning. I recorded three video blog entries in my camera on the cruise. Unfortunately I was very hoarse, because I got a bad case of something that turned into bronchitis.

I'd almost rather not post these, because I'm so fat. It weirds me out to see myself looking like this. I don't think of myself this way.

I got cut off in the middle of the entry, so it's a two-parter. I recorded it in our stateroom, on Sebastian's bed.



Here's the rest of the entry:

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
