If anyone's interested, I'm ljdaly on Dreamwidth.

I didn't have any problem with orogeny, but a few people said they couldn't pronounce it. I'd rather not be or-blah-blah to anyone. (Orogeny was a stopgap anyway, when I switched ISPs and my old ID wasn't available.)

How *do* you pronounce orogeny?

BTW, LJ must have way of letting you change your LJ User Id transparently. Not only is slushmaster is now douglascohen, but going to slushmaster will redirect you to douglascohen and he didn't lose any entries in the process. I don't know how one goes about that though.

Okay, what's the deal with the whole Dreamwidth thing? What is it? Are you migrating off of LJ?

A while back, when it started to look like LJ might go under, I started to hear all these Dreamwidth murmurings. (Maybe there was more to it than that, but that's all I was party to.) I don't want to lose track of the community, so I figured I'd get an account, at least to try it out for a while.

The good thing is that you can post just there, and it cross-posts to LJ. And also, you can import your entire LJ over there. So if one of them should happen to go under, the data are saved.

So far, it seems fine.
