Importitude Success!

Apparently it worked. So I'm here now. Just need to give LJ a dead-end email address.

Well, the import failed

Not that I'm surprised. This sort of thing never works for me. However, I'll archive my LJ so I have it and move on from here.

Well...

Attempting to import from LJ to here, after which that journal goes on the shitter.

I suppose you can't expect much for nothing, although we had a good thing going for a couple of decades.

Here's what I saw in the new TOS ....

"The Administration may send to User information related to the Service as well as third-party advertising using the email address provided by User."

"May"? The company "may" start emailing me ads? Gee, I'm sure that will NEVER happen.

Pardon me while I change my email addresses.

I hate computers, I loathe computers, I despise computers

Any geeks out there know of a good, simple (it doesn't have to be free) software that will allow me to share files between my two computers. I cannot network them together for some reason, no matter what I try (although they used to be networked together - Windows 10 eliminated that).

I don't want cloud, I don't want remote control - I just want to share files between them.

Anyone who has a program that does this, please advise.


God almighty. Why is this so difficult in 2017?

Dang it, people (that is, writers):

Please archive your stuff. Think of the readers.


Just sayin'. I know some folks don't want to, but when I think of the good stories that fade away not because the authors don't want them out there, but because they forget or whatever, it makes me sad.

Such as it is. :-)

The (grammar) bitch is back ...

I'm reading quite a bit of fanfic right now and although I am enjoying it, I've got to gripe:

The noun is exhalation or inhalation. Exhale and inhale are verbs. For fuck's sake, don't they teach kids anything in school any more? Is this like "That was a hard ask," which I keep seeing in formerly legitimate newspapers where people who are not illiterate would have written "That was a hard question"?

Sam Waterston did a Calvin and Hobbes about "verbing" language, but I thought it was a joke.

OK. I feel better. Thank you for listening (assuming someone is). As ever, anyone who wants to post a pet grammar peeve here is welcome to do so - I always find them interesting.

A thought that could also be a question for other writers

Given the upsurge in readership post-movie, I find it feels really odd to me to think of people reading my stories and picturing the movie-verse guys in them. I can't even imagine it - not having seen the film I can't see those actors/characters at all, let alone in my stories - but considering the possibility is really weird.

Am I the only one who thinks about that?

Merry Christmas!

Since I'm awake (thanks, menopause :-/).

Happy holidays to all who celebrate (and, heck, happy days to those who don't) and wishes for a good 2016.

Hmmmm

Sudden "rush" of readers for my stuff on AO3. Curious to think I'd be benefiting, so to speak, from the new movie, but I have to assume that's what it is. Anyone else seeing an increase in readership action?

Am I the only one ...

... who just hates "Cowboy"?

Not least because the Napoleon I'm familiar with isn't one.

Oh well.
