"Just the ghost, the ghost of a smile."

Sunny today, and it's currently 40˚F, with the windchill at 31˚F.

Today, Elizabeth would have turned 46.

I need to get clean again, starting today.

Sirenia Digest #131 went out to subscribers this morning, so if you're on the list, it ought to be in your inbox. Yesterday was spent proofreading the two stories for this issue, then pulling the layout together. And working on an Alice in Wonderland puzzle we're doing.

I'm very much hoping that the sanctions against Russia don't mean the demise of LiveJournal. I've had a home here since 2004. But it's best to assume the worst and then prepare for it. So, I'll be backing everything up to Dreamwidth again, maybe with a new account. I don't like Dreamwdith, but there aren't a lot of choices.

Last night, I made spaghetti for dinner. I got Nellis Rose Snow to Level 28. And I read "Osteology and affinities of Dollo's goniopholidid (Mesoeucrocodylia) from the Early Cretaceous of Bernissart, Belgium" and "Sabinosuchus coahuilensis, a new dyrosaurid crocodyliform from the Escondido Formation (Maastrichtian) of Coahuila, Mexico." Whee.

TTFN,
Aunt Beast

I can't remember when I last backed up my LiveJournal. Not looking forward to it but guess I should make time.

That's a wonderful puzzle.

It sounds a complicated thing to do, this backing up. Can you do such a thing for literally everything here?

Pretty much, yes. Dreamwidth does it. My LJ is also backed up by the Wayback Machine at Internet Archive.

I think any Lewis Carroll puzzle would be bowtie

Crap. I had not thought of the sanctions meaning anything to LJ...

Definitely time to prepare in case something happens sooner rather than later. I'd been enjoying how LJ was coming back to life some as more ppl are disenchanted w. FB and want more substance.

Please, anyone on Caitlin's friends list reading this, could someone please help me w. backing up LJ? How is it done w.out moving each entry one by one?

If you make a Dreamwidth account, you can import your LJ directly into Dreamwidth, complete with comments, icons, tags, and everything. But it takes a lot of time.

Thank you. I have a Dreamwidth acct but don't know how to import entries from LJ.

I think the situation with Russia is going to get a lot weirder or worse before it gets better and I suppose I shouldn't spare time worrying about Live Journal. But I really would miss it, I hope it endures somehow. Nice looking puzzle.

On the one hand, yes. On the other hand, I have almost 5,000 entries covering most of twelve years, I can't lose that.

Can you let us know what your name on DW will be, so we can follow you over there? I'm on DW now. I've been using it for several years.
