So, Australians! I am organising a Collective For The Dispersal Of Ludicrous International Shipping Rates with regard to http://www.topshelfcomix.com, which is having an excellent sale until Friday. I've got two other people in so far, but a couple more would be perfect :) (shipping is like $50, whereas some of the individual items are marked down to $3 YOU CAN SEE HOW THIS IS SLIGHTLY RIDIC) so check it out and see if there's anything you want. (I am making use of it to remedy the sad absence on my bookshelf of Alan Moore related items.)

Also, I have written a thing for this zine and I could do with someone who knows anything about christian mythology and/or the punk scene to give it a quick once-over and make sure I haven't written anything egregiously dumb or unrealistic about either. I'm trying to pawn this task off on my boyfriend but he has like sixty books to read about lady anarchists in spain or something, so yep :P

IN CONCLUSION

...hey guys.

/o

So my inevitable long unanounced hiatus for this year is nearly over. I didn't want to post anything until I had time to do a long catch-up post, but surprise! One of my assignments for this semester involves writing a (long, LONG) blog post and submitting it with commentary. Nobody's specified where it should go, so I'm going to post it here and link my teacher to it, and I thought I should warn you guys before I do so. Uh, because it's due at 5pm today :P

Please only comment to that post with discussion on the topic, any welcomes back, ear-boxing, cat macros etc should go here or be saved for the catch-up post :)

PS I totally missed you \o/

...aaand I forgot why I made that post in the first place: I have some dreamwidth invites. Did anyone forget to validate their OpenID?

The shiny new DW feature I am least impressed with is the splitting of the friends list into give access/subscribe. I understand the reason for the division, but for me it is just awkward because I don't lock anything. If I don't want people to read about it, I don't put it on the internet. I tried doing the flock thing on LJ but I could never figure out what to lock and what not to, so *shrug*

I still feel bad when people subscribe/give me access and I don't tick the access ticky box though! But rest assured it makes no difference whatsoever. So I've decided not to "grant acces" to anyone, since everyone has access by default. If in the future I decide to post things that only certain people are allowed to read I'll go through and grant those people access, but since my RL need-to-know circle doesn't overlap that greatly with my online circles I rather think I'll be saying those things in a non-LJ context. Email! It's great! ...or I guess if I become a corporate tool I'll go through and lock my fic, at which point I'll just grant access to everyone who follows me.

Okay, so I imported my LJ to DW. This has created a duplicate of my last post, which was cross-posted pre-import - logical! - but also has inexplicably swapped around my embedded videos. Viz this entry which on livejournal had a video right at the end with dancing zombie and plant cartoons. As you can see, Dreamwidth has randomly replaced it with a cool guitar video I posted some time last year. Also this layout I'm trying out, which is much more legible than the default black one, sticks the page title up next to the journal subheading which seems confusing/redundant.

I am however impressed that all the code has been fiddled with so that lj-usernames still link to lj! Also, I seem to have missed out on the reported bug which shows up when you import your userpics later than your entries. The reason for my tardiness was that I had already uploaded six userpics before I found the import feature. Oh hey, it hasn't even duplicated the ones I had uploaded on both sites! It just merged the tags. Awesome! Ohh it's going to be such a pain working out which ones to delete once open beta starts and my account goes back down to the regular free-account icon-load. I had reached an equilibrium on LJ! I had fifteen icons that covered pretty much anything I had cause to post about! And then I went to upload icons to DW, and I didn't have all my LJ icons on this hard drive, so I just picked some from the folders I do have, and those are all good ones too! Argh. Okay, what do I use more often... I can merge some snark icons... *sweats*

Hey everybody, if I've done everything right this entry is currently visible on dreamwidth AND livejournal! Woo, exciting. Now, I've mostly resigned myself to having two separate flists at least for now, so I went off and added a bunch of feeds and stuff over here. Then I checked out my friends page and promptly told lifehacker feed to GTFO because it posts entirely too often and clutters everything up with like... polls about banning comic sans or something, WHATEVS.

Now to add everyone who's moving to dreamwidth! This could be problematic in that I don't want to read the same entry twice, so if somebody's going to be cross-posting I'm going to have to pick one. Now if somebody's going to crosspost SOMETIMES and other times post lj-specific or dw-specific stuff, then I'm sort of fucked :P

...ah, shit, now I'm going to have to sync up my icon tags, aren't I?

Holla if you're reading this!
