Should I suddenly find myself in Anaheim (Los Angeles) this October, would any of you folks be in the area of a meet-up?:P
Also, I've decided to move my journal posting over to my LiveJournal. Sorry, but not posting in two places makes my life substantially easier. It allows me to post things as I happen on them instead of making large digests to minimize the pain of posting in two places. Slashdot is very sluggish these days.
If you don't like LiveJournal, your distaste is probably dated. The bad crowd of the late 90s has moved over to MySpace and FaceBook. The calibre of posts is high, at least in the crowd that I run in.
Regardless, you can just subscribe to the newsfeed.
