I have no intention of leaving LiveJournal.



I have a lifetime account here.

I'm experimenting with Dreamwidth for two reasons:

  1. Some people on my regular Reading List have migrated, and I'd like to keep in touch iwth them with minimal fuss.
  2. If something happens to LJ, it would be nice to have my writings for the last decade or so easily available. DW's "Import Journal" function provides gives me a back-up function.


So, Don't Panic, 'k?

What's the first major news event that you remember hearing about as a child? Where did you learn about it? How did it impact your world view?

The Vietnam War wasn't really an event when I was a child: it was simply another fact of existence. It was always there, always part of adult conversation, always part of my father. I don't actually remember the period that my father was in Vietnam, or even when he came home, but for as long as I can remember, his time there has been one of the defining attributes of his personality.

The first event -- or series of events -- that I really remember as news stories would have to be the Apollo flights, and I learned about those by having my mother bundle me up in front of the TV and watch every single manned flight.


Let's see if LJ will recognize its own template if I cross-post from DW...

Your Obedient Serpent finally found out how to import the entirety of his LiveJournal into DreamWidth, where all the Cool Kids seem to be going.

It's the whole shebang, too: journal entries, comments, tags, filters, everything except my ridiculous gallery of icons (DW maxes out at 15, which really is plenty; LJ allows me 202, and I have 82. Time to pick and choose!)

LJ-specific templates like the Writer's Block questions didn't make it through; I don't know if polls did, either, since I don't use them enough to pick a poll-entry out without slogging through pages and pages of archives.

I don't know if I'm going to shift my primary posting habits over there, but now that I don't have to abandon eight years of archives, that's become feasible.

Of course, DreamWidth makes it much easier to cross-post, so it does make sense to make my posts from hereDW rather than over therelj.
