Big Brother has arrived

My new passport arrived last week which is good as we will probably head boatwards in November to make sure she's secure on her new pontoon for the winter. I was pleased to see that the passport office had added a month to the passport because the old one didn't expire until Nov 7th. What came as a surprise was the little radio transmitor on the reverse of the page bearing my photo. It seems that along with my biometric details being stored on a chip, the government can no

What happened to the good old days?

I've been experimenting with some new layouts and have to admit I'm very taken with Mixit's 'Default' and 'Nevermore'. But apart from giving us more choice with layouts, what's happened to the basics? Many on my flist have reported problems of some sort over the past couple of days.

And then there's what I used to call 'techie extras', those little things that help me keep track. Like the 'fans of....' facility that me keep an eye on who is friending and de-friending? How many of you get 'this page has been reset' when you click the link to the webpage?

It's been breeding again and there's a mound of ironing glowering at me in the utility room. Normally I'd grapple with it while watching TV but MWNN is watching 'Castaway' and I can't see the appeal.

I'm using Nevermore too. I love it
29th-Oct-2006 09:11 pm (UTC)
I'm using it for the Halloween period. It's cool. but I prefer my own banner.

29th-Oct-2006 09:12 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I suppose it's not really suitable for all the year round

I need a new banner for my LJ I think. Something multi-fandom

Oh, for the love of... I get the 'This page has been reset'-message as well.

They've closed the site. :(

I thought it originated from the depths of R&D at LJ?
29th-Oct-2006 09:35 pm (UTC)
Nope, just a user who made a nifty program that used LJ-generated data.
29th-Oct-2006 09:36 pm (UTC)
How come you know these things?

29th-Oct-2006 09:41 pm (UTC)
I have NO IDEA. I swear, my brain is like a butterfly net. The only problem is that it captures ephemera and trivia, and never things like "take the laundry out of the washer" or "remember to get the inspection sticker on your car renewed."

janedavitt thinks they may just be changing server - I hope so.
29th-Oct-2006 10:55 pm (UTC)
So I understand from Voodoo's comment below.

Have you seen the Midwinter Challenge over at writerconuk?
29th-Oct-2006 11:19 pm (UTC)
I am not good at challenges - but I will think about it. At the minute I have 2 chapters of the follow-up to Ten Years After written ready to post, and the plot outline in my head for the rest of it, so it might be difficult to do something else. On the other hand it might spark me into action!

We have Castaway on too, because we got the time wrong for Torchwood.

I love my laptop.

"pinkstuff, the server which hosts marnanel.org, is down. That means no more joule until it comes back up. It also means I'm not getting any email except CVS checkins, because pinkstuff is my primary MX, so if anyone has emailed me to say I'm dashing, sexy, and they want to pay me a million pounds because my code is so awesome, I haven't seen it. I haven't even seen email from this universe. If you want to know more about when it's back up, watch [info]pinkstuffpeople. It is in the capable hands of [info]shadowphiar and [info]fizaratan. Meanwhile, I welcome email at marnanel at gmail."

He's alive Frodo!

So there's no need for me to keep a tally stick then?
29th-Oct-2006 09:53 pm (UTC)
Hopefully not!!
29th-Oct-2006 10:56 pm (UTC)
This is what I love about my flist... you all know everything! I'd been worried that the site was down for good... nice to know it looks to be a temporary thing!

Testing, testing (just wanted to see whether anything was happening with your LJ yet)
2nd-Nov-2006 04:52 pm (UTC)
I can get in now. Perhaps the traffic was very heavy earlier on. Thanks for the testing.
