I fixed my Treo. While singing along with Wagner. It was pretty easy once I used my brain and stopped being all emo about it. Story of my life, really. I also replaced the battery, since two years of Angyl-use is enough to destroy just about any battery.

Now I'm good to wait until the 3G Jesusphone this summer.

[EDIT: OH HEY that silly strike thing is tomorrow huh. DEAR STRIKERS: If you really mean it, move to vox. As in delete your old journal and MOVE. Nobody cares if you hold back your wanky emo poetry for one day. Oh and, you fandom kids? You can stay right here.]

*heh* It's funny that LJ is known for the emo/goth/teen thing still. It isn't something I ever encountered, quite possibly because I never went looking for it in any way.

What I DID find on LJ were interesting people often posting the various travails of adulthood, two of the folks from The Venture Brothers have accounts here, the incredibly wonderful Thrift Store Horrors group, an active Butt-Numb-A-Thon community (Ok, I started that community, no fair there, but the people were here), and in general a somewhat geekier crowd of tech type thinkers largely due to LJ's more obscure nature of use.

The only weird thing about Vox I have found is that a friend of mine pointed out that it seems to attract a sort of mid-western Christian conservative crowd through no fault of its own really but that they are there. I admit, I really do like Vox's setup, but I also don't like the clutter and I wish I could find a theme that was all simple lines and colors.

More funny is that there's a "strike" of some sort you've mentioned that... I don't really get. I'm too old to get strikes for anything that don't involve a paycheck or a political action. :)

Well, I mean, I'm not on LJ for the emo kids, but that's really the main demographic, and it was never even marketed as anything else. Vox was marketed as "LJ for adults" for awhile, but (or therefore?) it's barely a blip on the blog radar, so you don't have the community dynamics thing. I sometimes think vox was an attempt to siphon off the older (and more likely to have money therefore be a more valuable segment) community from LJ while 6A had it. Even the x-posting to LJ bit feels like it was intended to ease the transition. For my part, I've been dropping the vox as an alternative primarily because of the friends/family privacy features and comment systems, because they're the closest to those standout aspects of LJ that I don't see many other places. (I must admit, thought, I do like the 100+ icons thing ;) I'm definitely slowly unrooting from LJ and diversifying my netspace... stuff like FriendFeed are some of google's stuff are making me hope that maybe it won't be painfully long before social networking starts peeling open and we'll all be more portable across website lines.

Also, srsly. Someone probably has a post somewhere detailing why it's technically incorrect to call it a strike, cuz it sure seems like it's a misuse of the term.

Ditto. I have a catalog of all the web services I use going right now in a Google Doc. In fact, this reminds me I need to add the Google Share to that.

I am trying to find some way to collate all of those together into a single web page point for myself, so I am looking at different ways to do that using smallerdemon.com's front page.

*heh* I am always still head shaking in befuddlement that LJ was marketed to the indie/emo crowd. See, I thought that was what Dead Journal was for. To siphon those kids away from LiveJournal. :)

I agree with you that ultimately all of these services will necessarily need to be crossing over into each other. The notion of proprietary services is fading faster than a fall sunset.

Naw. I have a love/hate relationship with fandom that's currently over on the 'hate' side.
