Aghhhhh okay so I've been blocked on writing in my journal for a while now. I keep wanting to post stuff and linkspam, but I get stuck trying to decide whether to crosspost or not.

Mostly what's stopping me is the Driving Revenue stuff.

If you don't know what I'm talking about: Driving Revenue stuff (cut because most of you have heard this before) )

The more I think about it, the less I want to put up posts with any kind of links on LJ, and that's hard, because links are the backbone of the web. How will I show you guys COOL (and DISGUSTING) stuff if I can't link you?

So, there's this Three Weeks for Dreamwidth, a celebration of DW going into open beta, which is a content-fest where you post (select) entries to only your Dreamwidth journal and not repost it anywhere else for three weeks. So far there's been a lot of amazing and positive content. I'm not officially part of it, and the fest doesn't ask for all crossposting to stop, but I feel like I need to step away in order to get past this block. I'm turning off crossposting for the next three weeks; I haven't yet decided what I'm going to do long-term.

*deep breath* If you want to say something, I've turned on screening for anonymous comments on this entry for both LJ and DW. I've also disabled IP logging for comments on LJ.

I kinda got tired of having to worry about what bits of personal information Facebook is going to expose next (while being misleading about how to opt out). I don't use Facebook; I'd rather not have to spend any of my time constantly adjusting my settings and opt-outs on it!

If i were using it in any capacity, things might have been harder, but I don't, so now everyone/everything is gone. So, there. One less thing that needs to take up mental energy.

PS. I'm not sure what the difference between deactivate (accessible from editing your settings and delete (accessible via the helpful google-fu of my friends), but on the principle that the second is more hidden than the first, plus that deletion seems more permanent than deactivation, I did delete rather than deactivate.

PPS. I wish that facebook did not use the terminology of "friends". I removed people there because I got a bit twitchy about what can be datamined from network connections, but seriously, if you were my friends before facebook, then you are still my friends after facebook :-)

Oops, notifs

I appear to have done something that is now preventing me from being notified for any comments that were made to my LJ. Not sure if other kinds of notifications were affected -- I'm going to try to keep up in other ways but uhhh if I miss a reply to one of my entries or one of my comments, well,

IT'S NOT YOU, IT'S ME.

ETA:

Checked and unchecked checkboxes and I'm not sure what hit what, but I have LJ comment notifs back again :)

Giving out codes

I have a handful of codes to give out to anyone who's interested in Dreamwidth, currently closed beta \o/! Comment with your email address if you're interested, and will put you on the list for now and future codes. Will edit the entry when they're all gone.

All comments are screened.

(PS. I can be bribed with love :-))

EtA: All gone.

I've been thinking about this a bit, and I will be moving my main posting to DW, but continue lurking here to read my friends page. Ironically, I've started reading my friends page here more regularly, since I got my Dreamwidth account. Something about being so happy over there carries over to being more sociable over here, too.

I will continue archiving my Twitter entries on my LJ, but I will not be posting them to DW. I will also cross-post from DW to LJ, assuming I don't forget -- may be a slight lag between when I post there versus here, because I end up too lazy to open a second update window, but entries with substance length will make their way here eventually.

There will be a crossposter tool soon! Which will be awesome, and will make crossposting much easier, and give me no excuse not to post entries to here.

PS. feature for the day: Tags on Month page!

Implemented a couple of weeks ago, but got overlooked among all the other style system changse.

I was going through my list of script suggestions, trying to move them over to a more organized list, and I've realized I promised a *lot*, but given the way things stand, I won't be doing most of them.

It's probably not a big deal at this point, since most have been standing so long, they've been forgotten! But if there's anything you asked for before, and still haven't forgotten about/still do want, poke me so I can move it to a todo list I'm actively looking at, rather than let the idea molder (and die).

Thanks!

Quick note: I've gotten a mild uptick in anon spam, so I'm disabling anonymous comments until the bots have purged me from their database (it worked the last time!). If you have a legitimate reason for trying to contact me via an anonymous comment, I'm sorry about that!

POSS in Cebu

Forgot to tell everyone, but I'll be gone for the next three days, going to the Philippine Open Source Summit in Cebu. I'm pretty excited: it's only the second tech conference I've ever been to, and this is actually more in my line of interest than the first one (Sun Tech Days last week).

Also, I get to fly to another province! My Dad says Cebu is just another city like Manila, but still ;-)

Also, I get to be up at 4AM so I won't be late for my flight! Oh, wait... (But seriously, it's so going to be worth it).

Here is going to be how I'm going to spend the next two days: http://oss.ph/agenda.html

Except for Wednesday. Not sure what I'm going to be doing on Wednesday.

ETA:
If anyone really needs to tell me anything, I can be reached through my @lj email or, assuming Twitter starts sending me text notifs, I can be reached through that as well (but I've stopped hoping that it will ;-))
