That’s All, Folks

January 11, 2009

Well, I’ve decided I might as well just do this thing. I’ve created a wordpress blog for myself and after I finish this post I’m going to update the archive I made of my LJ (community posts that I want to grab will eventually follow) I won’t be posting new material to my LJ anymore. I’ll still check my flist periodically and may or may not add something to a comm here and there, but apart from that this is pretty much it for my LJ. I’m not planning on deleting my account, however. It’ll be around until LJ goes away, pretty much.

I first posted to this journal on 1/19/2005 with the rhetorical interrogatory, "Ooh, ain’t I angsty?" The four-year anniversary of that post is coming up in just over a week. I’ve enjoyed posting to my blog here and I’m glad of the friends and associations I’ve made here. I hope that at least some of them can continue after my departure.

Most of you either have my e-mail or chat handles, and some of you have my facebook. If you’re interested, you know where to find me. If you don’t have them, ask and ye shall receive. I  hope to see you on the other side.

Hello world!

January 9, 2009

I’ll leave that title alone, I think. It reminds me of programming class. Anyhow, so this is my new blog. I am using it to replace my venerable Livejournal. I shall add more to this blog later, but for now I’m in process of dealing with the archives of my old one. So that will be all for now.

Be safe, and I’ll see you soon.

Onoz! Teh Sky, It Is Falling!

Well, I may have somewhat overstated that. You can forgive me later, I am sure.

As almost everybody on LJ is likely aware now, there are guys running around with "the end is nigh!" sandwich boards due to the signs of the times (to wit: the firing of over 2/3 of LJ’s employees, likely an indication that LJ is going on life support before too much longer and getting the plug pulled entirely at some point).

While I’m not in a giant rush, I have decided that it might be wise to begin checking out some other blogging alternatives. I’ve got a social networking thing in facebook, but I want something that’s specifically for blogging so I can keep my social network and my blog at least somewhat separate. I’ll talk mostly about geeky stuff and odd news items etc as ever in the blog of course. Now to ponder on where to hop to. WordPress is a possibility, as is blogspot. I hear that it’s possible to import an LJ journal into wordpress as well, which is nice. I guess I’d best do some actual research on this pretty soon.

LJArchive‘s looking like a good thing, too.

Any suggestions? Are any folks on my flist heading off in any specific direction?
