Guess I Won’t Be Around Anymore (as if I ever really was)

Someone awesome, and near and dear to me, bought me a permanent account. (See?)

That pretty much sealed the deal that I’m not going to use anything else unless LiveJournal does something really stupid. And in their 8(?) years of existence, that really stupid thing has been continuing to exist in a data center that gives you a solid 24+ hours of downtime once a year. :P
But they have rectified that this year!

The last paragraph was very anecdotal and tongue-in-cheek and I didn’t really mean it. Every service makes mistakes, no one is safe.

I think the biggest reason why I’m leaving is the fact that WordPress is a great publishing platform, but it’s seriously lacking in the “community” aspect. Sure, WP has the tag surfer, site-wide logins, multiple authors per blog, but that’s just scratching the surface.

Sure I can roll my own aggregator, but, I dunno. I’ve never really done anything with this blog anyways, so it’s not really that big of a deal to me. :)

6 years and about $275 (not necessarily all paid by me), LiveJournal is my now-permanent home. I love your progression WordPress, but I’ll be next door. Thanks for all the work, keep it up.

YAIPA! (Yet another iPhone App) or Not Quite Yatta!

Hello, from WordPress for the iPhone!

I’d like to welcome you to yet another iPhone app that is text entry heavy, yet it doesn’t support landscape orientation for entry.

Sigh.

AniMix AMV Project – Tracklist

Animix was an hour long AMV of various Anime Clips, timed to a “Deep Dance” compilation from years ago. The result is a beautiful combination of wacky (and not so wacky) anime clips, and a great continual megamix of popular dance music.

PhoneFactor | Home

A two-factor authentication service. First spotted via MyOpenID’s use thereof. PhoneFactor advocates online banking security via Two Factor authentication, Phone Call/SMS Code/etc. are some of many ways to do that.
(But it’d be freaking nice if they all supported my PayPal OTP too.)
