Arrrrrr!

Lifetime with caveats

Many moons ago, I became one of those LJ users who got a lifetime account.  This was a good thing, I thought, to have a permanent space that was floating out on the net, that I wouldn’t have to maintain any infrastructure for.  I made the switch to LJ in 2002, and, since then, have been a faithful user.


Unfortunately, recent events (mostly surrounding Sixapart’s handling to EDMD) have left me realizing that I’m tethered, rather than free.


There are still a lot of people here where LJ is my primary form of communication, or keeping up-to-date.  I am not leaving, but I am going to start crossposting.  I set up an actual blog on my website (which is a two year old project which dies today), which will sydicate here.  You can still comment here, if you want, but I set up openid so you don’t have to keep logging in after the first time, if you want to comment on my blog.


This, of course, presumes that there is something I say worth commenting on.  Supposing that is true, I’m working on making it as simple as possible.
