Ok, so I'm catching up on the comments in the lj_releases thread when I came across this post:

http://lj-releases.livejournal.com/79480.html?thread=10004856#t10004856

"Thank you for your inquiry.

There is no way to turn off the message regarding the beta version of the Friends page/feed. It will remain visible to all users during the beta period, after which point the new Friends page will become the only version available.


So there you go. LJ definitely wants to drive me away.

I was reading on the lj releases group and got to the end of page 12 (WHEW!), refreshed the page and in the time it took me to read page 12, it went up to 19 pages.  And I'm a pretty fast reader.  Not that I expect it will make any difference to them.  They are russian after all, and they are kind of used to the dictatorial model of government.

Also, I encourage all of you to get a Dreamwidth journal.  Apparently they are open to everyone now with no code needed.  You can easily import your journal entries from here, including tags AND security settings.

Stole this from a community on Journalfen. I am so mad. Y'all know I'm visually impaired so I read everything from my FL and have the gigantic font so I can see. Well, LJ is taking away our FL customization. Yep. You heard right. Our FLs are all going to look the same, and that same is unreadable when you are visually impaired.

Here's the Journalfen post:
What are they up to now?
How could they possibly fuck up their own site any worse than they already have?
Everyone's FriendsList will look the same. Styled in that migraine-inducing blinding white.
With infinite scrolling. (Note that [info]ruljautonews only translates Russian LJ news posts into English and has no actual affiliation with LJ or it's staff.)
Oh, and LJ's U.S. office is shutting down.

Hey Dreamwidth? Expect yet another flood of sign ups.

ETA: It's live now. It hasn't been forced yet, but there's an annoying bar tellingme to change to the new style.



Me again. I have just been to my FL. I have my prefs set to display place holders for pictures and video (saves sideways scrolling sometimes) and it's completely ignoring that and showing pictures, forcing me to scroll sideways. It's been great here on LJ all these years, but I think this will do it in for me. I just don't know if I can stick around with this mess. Scrolling sideways is a complete pain and I hate it, and it's stupid to have to have my LJ window full screen. Honestly, it's like they WANT LJ to go belly up.

I'm finding myself really stressed out lately, and I think it's because of politics, you know? I feel like the stakes are so great this time around and I'm panicking. So I'm going to pull a Scarlett O'Hara and think about that tomorrow. I'm going to start avoiding reading stuff that'll upset me and think about superficial things for a while.

My first item is that I'm SICK TO DEATH of "armpit bags". Why did purse designers suddenly start skimping on the shoulder strap? I see so many gorgeous bags except for the strap which will force the bag under my arm and cause the whole thing to be mashed. YUCK. I see women walking around smooshing their bags under their arms and probably getting pit stains on them too. WTF handbag makers? W.T.F?!?

I'm not going back into the _p post about the crazed thugs who attacked the American consulate, because my blood pressure just cannot take the strain from the people who are falling all over themselves to say "it's ok when muslims do it." No It's not. It's not ok when anyone does it. It's not ok to kill over media. Period. End of story. And it's almost funny because their own countrymen say it's not ok!

It's also pretty xenophobic (I'm not going to say racist because "muslim" isn't a race) to say that "those people can't help themselves" or "of course they'll riot, those people are like that!" or any of the other ethnocentric bullshit statement so-called liberals are flinging around over there.

So if anyone is here from there, I'm not even going to acknowledge that kind of crap, so I'm out.

Is this happening to anyone else? I can't open any comments at all. I even tried typing in the URL by hand and it's not working. Why can't they leave well enough alone? They keep making it worse and worse!

I have spent the day trying to do my stuff, and stupid Charter Communications, who is the only high speed ISP in our area, can't seem to keep us connected for more than 30 seconds at a time. This has been going on for more than a year. We've called and called and they keep sending technicians out who do NOTHING. I am SICK of them, and we are seriously thinking about moving just to get into an area where there's some other company.

I'm so mad I feel like throwing things and smashing things and swearing. I hate that company with the fire of a thousand suns. Now let's hope I can stay online long enough to actually post this.

I hate my sinuses so much. I am so stuffy today, and this has been going on for some time now. I know the pollen is awful this year but I am just ready to rip my sinuses out by the roots. (That is, if they weren't just empty spaces, although mine aren't empty they are blocked.) I don't even know what I'm saying now, I'm just babbling because I CAN'T BREATHE!

I'm tired of hearing idiots saying "a pant" rather than "a pair of pants." There's no such thing as "a pant" unless you're talking about a dog who breathed heavy one time.

I hate this forced change so much. I can't find any of the buttons. When I go to send an email I have to hunt around for 3 minutes or so to try to find the freaking SEND button. I don't know why they changed it to this crap. Google used to be a good company, but frankly, I think they have become evil like they said they wouldn't. :(

They just interrupted my (commercial free) music channel for an energizer battery commercial using the Emergency Alert System. Yes, you heard right, there was an emergency energizer battery commercial.

I hate McAfee software. It came with this computer and I've been using it for a while but today it "updated" the software and wouldn't work correctly after that. I tried everything their help page said but finally decided to just ditch the piece of crap and get Avast like I have on my other computer.

I downloaded and installed Avast, and then uninstalled McAfee. As, I guess, a sort of "fuck you for uninstalling us" McAfee DISABLED MY INTERNET CONNECTION! I didn't know if I was coincidentally having cable problems or what so I had to go boot up my other computer, and sure enough it connected just fine. That's when I checked my Network Connection settings to find out it was DISABLED! Bastards!

After so much devastation, of course Jim Cantore of the weather channel has to bring his ghoulish self over here to gloat over all the damage.  I hate him so much.  I hate the glee with which he greets the destruction of people's homes and lives.  Ugh.  What an asshole!  I wish the Weather Channel would get rid of that jerk!

Some of my husband's coworkers lost their houses in the tornado last night.  It's so horrible!  I'm glad that our house was ok, and my mom and nephew are also ok and had no damage, but I am very sorry for those who weren't so lucky.

I have a rant that seems pretty unimportant after all the tornado damage, but I'm going to do it anyway because even a minor irritation is irritating.  Google has messed up the Google toolbar.  I LOVE my Google toolbar, or at least I used to.  I use a couple of different computers so by using the toolbar, I was able to keep them mostly the same.  But now, despite the fact that I have vast tracts of space on that toolbar, Google decided that they would hide all my buttons.  I can bring them back by clicking the "more" button, but then they disappear again.  It is really super annoying!  GOOGLE! GIVE ME MY BUTTONS BACK!  *SHAKES FIST*

Checking around the internet, it seems like it annoys all the other Google toolbar users as well.  I hope they fix it.  It's not nearly as useful to me with all the clicking I have to do on it now when I used to just have to click my button, now I have to click "more" then the button, then the next thing.  It's ridiculous!
