(Break it down: you got a turn of phrase)

No, self, it wouldn't be a good and productive use of your time to filk Crazy Bitch by Buckcherry to make it about online RP. Why'd you gots to cause wank just 'cause there isn't any, huh?

I only recently finally joined twitter - because there's no point in updating LJ with one sentence posts when there's a site that does it special like, but primarily so I could import daily posts over to my LJ using LoudTwitter, just like matgb does. But, I've had LoudTwitter set up for a couple of days now, and have my twitterings been posted? Have they bollocks.

Not that my 'twitterings' are actually worth reading, but the idea was that posts happened here even when I can't get to a computer to update.

Uh, OK, NOW they work, just to confuse me.

But enough of my randomness. I have work to do. Instead, have a video of people doing Thriller on the tube:

And then everyone should go and leave valentines messages, yes.

(Hey, you're a crazy bitch, but you write so good I'm on top of it)

[I am actually considering leaving Milliways. Possibly FH as well]

You can, if you want also either send your twitters to Facebook as status at the same time or export your status from Facebook to Twitter, depending on prefs, I do the former mostly. I'm still not sure if it's worth it but it's a nice record of stuff and it uses the free texts.

I don't have free texts, but I might get one if this works.

I'll definitely look into the facebook thing, because I never keep my status up to date.

BTW, I think I only got Loudtwitter to work when I switched to email. Do you use Atom?

Yeah, Atom, never had a problem with it, only time I did was when I accidentally set it to email myself, I thought it was as well as not instead of.

They haven't got back to me re my idea of custom text at the top of an entry, all those LJ hacks we could put in to an email send. I get 350 texts a month, even in the month I spent not seeing Jennie and sending a lot of texts I don't use more than 100, that's why I first tried it. Still not using loads but it's at least a use.

Actually, there is custom text at the beginning of an entry, so there. But I set it to email and it works, albeit not at the time I set it to.

I just don't use my phone at all - so the odd one to LJ isn't going to make it worth getting a contract.

Now if I could be bothered to shop, I may find one that does free/discounted international calls/texts, I'd jump at it.

Guess I should read their blog more, they set that up in December after "much feedback from the LJ community" which means more than just me then.

Cool, will fix that later so it auto tags and selects the right icon. Excellent.

I've always had a contract, the free new handset every year makes it worth it on its own really, but it was mostly so my parents could keep track of me when I first went to Uni—I'd have been living above a pub with only a payphone in the flat, odds of me ringing them or being in to be rung in that sort of situation? Top pud as well, we got the flat because it hosted the games society meets.

So, is your atom set up to /atom/post (which is what loudtwitter says it is) or /atom (which is LJ's version)?

The post-by-email appears to have worked, so I don't see why I'm complaining, mind.

I had a contract when I was an undergraduate and my parents were paying for it, but it's not exactly cost effective anymore, considering that I pay less than £20 a month on calls, and I don't really want any of the current handsets.

Though maybe mobile shopping could be something I could ask the 'rents for for my birthday.

I have mine set to:

Direct copy paste from my settings field, haven't touched it for ages.

But I'll switch to post by email anyway as the atom interface doesn't accept the tricks to set your userpic and tag.

Aww. I think you should write that filk. :D? :D? :D?
1st-Feb-2008 11:52 am (UTC)
YOU would! :-P
1st-Feb-2008 11:57 am (UTC)
Dooooooo it. You can throw me to the wolves if there's wank.

I object to the title of this post. *READS IT*

Also, LJ Add-Ons is psychic. It uses an appropriate icon EVERY TIME.
