I do believe I had this EXACT SAME conversation the other day with someone who claimed they were making a sequel to District 9
, and that they'd made sequels to Aliens
and Jurassic Park
I am - horror of horrors - actually updating LJ from the update journal page right now, for a number of reasons, which boil down to one reason. I'm on Eddeee the tinyputer as I try to sort out working from home, and I haven't installed SeMagic. I'm not even sure I'm going to: the update journal page is much better than it was when I first started using LJ.
It's not that I've fallen out with SeMagic, so much as not wanting to install a lot of software very quickly on my new computer. I'm still tweaking Firefox to be as I want it and I haven't even bothered downloading Thundrbird of configuring Outlook. I'm also tweaking my email usage so I can restrict myself to two Gmail accounts for my two "identities" - which arent' all that separate, come to think of it. As far as balancing on and offline personas, I'm much more Green Arrow than Batman. Expect a post when I've figured that one oout, as it'll knock my current mutliple-gmail usage out of the water, I'm sure.
I'm also technically
updating using Shareaholic
, because part of my 'tweaking' involves finding a tool that will help me use internet sharing the way I want to. For a while a few weeks back I was using Yoono
, which has an excellent sharing tool for Twitter and Facebook. Trouble is, Yoono is a massive memory hog, and so not my friend. Instead, thanks to Lesley, I've found myself falling for Digsby
as a messaging and social network tool. If it had multi user chat support, it'd nearly be perfect for that - it doesn't, so I'm back to Trillian
on my desktop, which is a great chat client but its social networking interface is unusable, for me: when I'm at that computer I just don't follow Twitter.
Yoono's sharing tool is great because:
- it can post to both places with one click, or to either.
- it allows a choice between posting a link to the page, or posting an object (picture, video, &c) to wherever you're posting
- it moved objects (pictures and video) to facebook or yoono.com, thus avoiding hotlink issues.
I would have liked Delicious support (and LOVED Livejournal support), but sadly, the memory issues of Yoono, and the fact that it doesn't support Facebook chat or multi user conferencing, make it unusable for the most part.
On the other hand, Shareaholic has support for a much wider range of sites, includin LJ and Delicious, but you can only post one at a time - meaning that Nemi cartoon will probably only make my facebook and twitter feed when the LJ updates to both of them and if people can be bothered to click (hi, people on Facebook and Twitter!)
What tools/applications/extensions do you use for sharing? Am I askin to much to be able to post to everywhere on one click?
And SHOULD I have typed this all into my Dreamwidth update page to update both at the same time? So many questions.
