Writer's Block: Bah Humbug Day!  
[Error: unknown template qotd]

Let's start with Livejournal and their new release. Now don't get me wrong, there are things I like about this change! However, a few good changes (that are implemented fairly poorly) don't outweigh the plenty of bad changes that have been made.

Subject lines aren't frivolous trappings. They're at the heart of a lot of things in how LJ is used by a lot of people. Comment pages that are so clunky that some people can't even load pages to say anything!

The shortcut keys are nice. I like ctrl left and ctrl right to go through pages! It's handy! I like the icon browsing too, but it should be optional. Loading 100+ full sized icon is a killer for people with slower connections or older computers. Sure mine can handle it, but there are those that can't.

And to top it all off? Those stupid brothers of mine at all the frosted animal cookies that mum bought for me special, because we'd been talking about them the other day. :( Their excuse was the bag was "already half empty", but even little kids know those bags are always half full of air when you buy them!

Combine this with the fact that I could be stuck with this dying piece of junk laptop for several more months and I just want to break down and cry. I hate crying, but between my hormones and everything else it's so hard not to right now. :(

Oh right. Importing my personal stuff over to DW. I just want a backup if nothing else. http://uninvited.dreamwidth.org/

Orz, I am really not feeling the changes made to LJ. :/ And I'm sorry to hear about your computer! I hope it will be okay for all of the time that you need it for. ♥

I have to figure out which DW account I want to use, but when I do, I'll let you know and add ♥

I hear you on the comment-box changes. It's really frustrating - I mean, it's not so bad in personal journals, because then I see the custom styles which aren't affected yet, but in communities? Argh.

I hope your laptop manages to last you.
