I wasn't planning on doing this just yet, but the lure of the new shiny is just too strong for me.
I'm moving over to Dreamwidth. I'm rho over there too.
Or rather, I'm stopping writing entries on LiveJournal and starting writing them on Dreamwidth instead. I'll still be using my LJ account for reading my friends page and for commenting on other people here, since my LJ friends are awesome and I'm not giving you all up. I'll also still be using Scrapbook for image hosting, since DW doesn't have any image hosting (yet).
If you want to keep up with my entries, I've set up an account to syndicate them onto LJ at rho_dw. Don't leave comments on there though, because I won't see them. If you want to leave comments, your best bet for now is to make an OpenID account on DW and comment with that. (Yes, I did just write that FAQ earlier just so I could link it here now.) Alternatively, wait until mid-April (or thereabouts) when we go into open beta, and I'll probably be able to throw an invite code for a proper account at you.
Like I said, I'd not meant to move over until accounts were available to the general public, but I changed my mind. For a long time, I've been in the situation where I'm thinking of lots of things I could write as LJ entries but no motivation to actually write them. The thought of writing things on LJ is still failing to fill me with enthusiasm, but writing stuff on Dreamwidth is exciting again, so I might actually start updating more than once a fortnight again. Stranger things have happened!
And just to reiterate again, I'm nto going anywhere as ar as reading/commenting is concerned.
Just keep on trying till you run out of cake
