Freaking LJ now won't take you to you specific page for a post when you click the LJ cut but instead opens it up on my main LJ page. I don't want that. It fucks up the formatting of my main page as I mainly use cuts to post humongous pics. It also prevents from easy commenting right there. I found a work-around but it's a giant pain. Ugh, WTF is with LJ making unneeded changes. I am researching WordPress now, it's the last straw (I have a DW but that's mainly dead and my LJ is sorta like a blog anyway).

Ugh. WTF with changing things that work fine to start with?

I have no idea how and if I will be using it (maybe I will - I post enough caps. Or maybe it will be like DW, largely unused by me unless LJ is down) but we'll see.

Any of you have tumblrs I can follow?

Is it me, or has LJ been kinda dead lately? Is everyone off to tumblr? It's kinda sad, because even though I suppose I can always get my own tumblr, I loved the conversations that used to happen and tumblr isn't much on conversations - pretty caps and gifs, sure, meta, not so much. Boooo!

Surprisingly, the second ep of Big continued to be charming. And I definitely ship Kyung Joon in Young Jae's body with Lee Min Jung. I mean:





Also, this from preview:



Not related to either of the above, but The Proclaimers' "Im gonna be (500 miles)" always cheers me up:

I just want to give notice that in my Ouran post I have a two-line spoiler about the shippy outcome of the manga. I tried to put it in spoiler codes, but what with LJ screwing up and me being able to post only through email, it somehow didn't come through. I can't edit because post is too large and I get 500 or 503 Error. Apologies!

If you want to read it with spoiler code in place, go to http://dangermousie.dreamwidth.org because there it is blacked out.

via both dreamwidth and LJarchive and having problems with both (DW gives up after numerous attempts and LJArchive eventually gives me error). I take it this is because LJ is still being fixed. Anyone else having the same issues?

OK, livejournal won't let me post long entries. They are still working out bugs and long entries do not work yet.

So, if you want to read my impressions of the first episode of liveaction Ouran High School Host Club, go to my dreamwidth.

If you are a LJ member, you can comment there too (I have anon commenting enabled as well). I'll attempt to properly crosspost it later, but for now this is what I got.

Just a general notice: everything I post here is crossposted at http://dangermousie.dreamwidth.org

So if LJ is down or glitchy or slow, you can go there to hang out with moi :P

ETA: I can post long posts if I use Safari and mobile version of LJ through email, it seems.

Argh!

That is what I get for signing up for a service which hosts a number of prominent Russian political bloggers. Ugh!

(It's not that it's owned by a Russian company because whoever owned it, this would happen and be successful as long as it has Russian political bloggers).

Look, I am originally from Russia so I am not Russia-hating or anything.

But.

But I sure as fuck wish I knew this would be an issue and I would have picked a differing blogging/posting platform. Only, back in 2005 and for many years after it wasn't, so I didn't. Ugh. Wish I had foresight on this because now all my posts are on LJ (great, I will need to back them all up again once LJ is finally up, fun) and most of my flisties are LJ-only and some fun anons hang out there on my LJ etc.

Look, post about politics or don't, I don't care. They have every right to. But what I want is a blogging platform that works reliably and lets me access it as needed. That's all. And LJ does not have that lately at all. I don't care if it's for a bad reason such as lack of maintenance or good reason because they host political protest. Frankly, I don't give a fuck either way. I just want it to work as it is supposed to and it can't. I don't want to pay for glitchy, unreliable service. Clearly, my money on a permanent account was wasted.

Obviously, I am going to be using DW from now on (and cross-posting in hopes of LJ working that day, in case someone can only comment there - but with notes everywhere I use DW so hopefully they'll decide to come over). Also, is there a good blogging platform anyone recommends, e.g. blogher or wordpress?

Oh, and no, I don't care that mass exodus from LJ may be what the hackers want so it'd shut down the political bloggers. Frankly, I have a right to expect and receive reliable service and to continue to be devoted to unusable, flaky one for the sake some political point that does not concern me is really nuts.

Are they ever going to fix it? Look, I am all for freedom and dissidents and commenting on corruption. And the Russian LJers have as much right as anyone else to post whatever they want, even if it may result in pissing off un- or authorized hackers.

But ultimately, and as a practical matter, I need a blogging platform I can reliably use. I want to be able to post when I want, I want to read others' posts when I want, and I want to be able to reliably make and reply to comments.

If I can't have that, I am simply going to move to another platform (so far, I am going with dreamwidth but am researching blogs proper. If all my flist moved to dreamwidth, I'd probably never come back to lj, but since they haven't, I am trying to wait it out for longer). I am not blaming or annoyed at either LJ itself or the supposed protest blogs which caused this. LJ isn't losing any money from me, as I have a permanent account and already shelled out all I ever will. Principles are great but practicality is important - and a working blogging platform is basically the sine qua non of what you want and expect from any on-line posting site.
