  1. So i went to my LJ home view to see any announcements …
    True thing I saw when I went to my LJ home view:
    In Spotlight This Week: P
    * abandonedplaces
    Ramshackle old barns, burnt-out warehouses, moss-covered cemeteries—there’s a lot of beauty lurking in abandoned places. This community is dedicated to exploring and documenting the poetry of ruin and decay.

  3. This is exactly why I run my own server. The content is always under my control. I don’t trust LJ or Blogger or any other blog publisher.

  5. sez:
    Sources via The Independent (who have recently gone into partnership with LJ) advise me that they’re probably just shunting as much of the operation as possible to Moscow. Which, as they’re Russian owned, makes sense. So I’ve stopped my pathetic attempts to back up 6 years worth of data via ljbook.com (which is as slow as f*ck, which in turn indicates that I’m not the only one) and just ignoring the rumour mill. For the moment.

  7. I suspect they’ll just move the lot to Russia. LJ is huge there, and the non-Russian part of it has just been an appendage for the past few years.
    I hope they don’t lose it; it’s the only one that does social network-based authentication with any decent level of granularity.
