So, I’m back. I’m afraid it looks as if my LiveJournal account will not be returning. I suggest you make sure you have a full backup of your journal in case they decide to pull the same shit with you.
Fortunately, I was prescient enough to have just converted my entire journal backlog (or at least, all the good stuff) to blosxom format, so I can redeploy the whole lot on any web host which provides CGI. So I have.
No nifty discussion forum features here. I’m pondering what to do about that; I may just set up a mailing list for interested (and interesting) people who want to discuss anything I post about, or otherwise interact with me.
