thedivinegoat: A pencil sketch style picture of my Glitch, Ama Gafr (Glitch - Ama Gafr)
So half an hour before the announcement, I was hanging out in the UK Glitches, chatting about how I was disappointed that three/four weeks I was unable to get on Glitch there hadn't been any big changes. But hopefully it means they're working on some cool stuff that will be revealed shortly.

Then Blanky posts to the forum and everyone's pointing their fingers at me going - your fault, your fault. ;-)

I'm actually pretty excited about it. I can live with a reset if that happens, (although I am glad it's unlikely) but I'm really looking forward to the housing chages.

Also, I'm pretty happy about what it says about Tiny Speck as a company, I've said to other people that there many similarities between Dreamwidth and Tiny Speck, (given to differences in their actual businesses), and their commitment to transparency is one of them.

Plus double the credits means a total spending spree in the wardrobe!

I love Dreamwidth.

(Of course the main reason I love Dreamwidth is you guys)

So my DW account is one year old today. *\o/*

I love DW so much. I love the community here, I love the meta here, I love the policies and diversity statement, and the stupid fisting jokes in IRC and that you can put a reason why you're editing a comment, and I love the people and my reading list and the kink memes and the friending memes and the news posts and the latest things page and and dreamwidth points and accessibility and privilege checks and comment length and the standing up to trolls & payment processors and ...

I just love it here. ♥

Firstly, 'cos I haven't done this for ages and LJ seems to be slightly broken at the moment, I have invite codes. If you want one, take one, (but let me know so I can strike it out).


Secondly, have I said lately have much I hate Frankie Boyle? He's the main reason I gave up on Mock the Week, despite having Hugh Denise and Howard thingymabob, (the cute one from Somerset), because I couldn't take the constant rape jokes and generally sexist, racist, ableist, homophobic and transphobic humour that constantly fell out of FB's mouth. Well, he's at it again, only this time, when actually confronted by a couple who he'd really, massively upset, he totally failed to see what a shit he'd been and continued to be an offensive fuckhead.

Have spent sometime today with my friend and her son Harry, who I've know since he was born, and he's now two and gorgeous and such a cheeky monkey, (seriously, watching him head towards an open door, looking back at his mum, 'cos he knows full well he's not meant to be heading there, but hee! hee! look mummy I am! is the funniest thing ever) and has Downs Syndrome, this upset even more than it normally would, and I would really like someone to punch FB in the balls. Or where ever else it takes to get him to start emphasising with people.

(I think it's particularly touching the way they are now implying that [personal profile] synecdochic was "misleading" people, and they are not back-pedalling at all, no siree, not us.)

As always I have DW codes to give away.

Castle! I think that was my favourite episode so far. There were so many bits that set me a-squeeing with their awesomeness.

One thing I didn't catch til my second viewing* was that the fact that the victim was bisexual wasn't commented on, wasn't made a joke of and wasn't the reason he was murdered. It was just there. NCIS? Take notes please.

And onto the fanservice )

And briefly in non-Castle related news -

I've just got an app for my iPhone called Best Camera‡, and have been playing around with it. The camera is the one part I don't like about the iPhone - it's shit, especially as my phone before had a 5 megapixel camera with a Carl Ziess(sp?) lens. But I quite like some of the effects you can get with this app. You can see some of the results I got with it at my Best Camera Gallery. My favourite I've taken so far is this picture of the Second Severn Crossing.

We watched the first episode of Little Mosque on the Prairie. And apart from the fact I have huge difficulties spelling Prairie, I loved it. So painfully funny. I'm going to leave off talking more about it until I watched more, but can someone point me towards the fic?

Dreamwidth now allows email posting for all account types and have up'd icon limits across the board...

...whilst LJ fails in it's news post.

Lastly, who's on GoogleWave? I need more people to talk to.

* OK so I've watched it three times since Tuesday. Shut up, I was clipping. ;-)
† I really like Doctor Holloway, can he come back?
‡ The best camera is the one you have with you.

Today's DW news post. Today's LJ news post.

*Snuggles DW hard.*

Also GIP because I love these two new icons so much

Happy Amita is Happy

I love the faces Kate pulls

(As always I have DW invite codes if anyone wants one)

I've been thinking a bit about how I'm going to run my DW & LJ accounts, now I actually have a DW account, and the crossposter is working, (albeit in alpha form).

One thing I've been wondering about, is the whole commenting thing. The crossposter allows you turn off comments at LJ, and redirect people to DW. (The theory being, that if you've got an account at LJ you can comment at DW with your openid).

Having seen some of the wank going down in the last few days I have to ask - if you read my journal, but are not yet on DW, and have no plans to be, would being directed to DW be a deterent to commenting? (I say this as if I write loads of interesting posts that people are falling over themselves to post on. ;-) )

If it is a deterent, why?

I may have committed a Leverage/Dreamwidth crossover.

And it's not even the first...
