Weather Geekery with a side of snigger [10 Aug 2007|10:17am]
Um. Oops! Y'know, that Y2K bug keeps popping up in the damnedest places...

Apparently 1998 is no longer the hottest year on record...

(Warning, the comments on this article are swinging into wank re: pro- and anti-global warming crap, and the OP has a bit of an anti-global warming stance, but still, the news is amusing/interesting.)

Just a quickie for now [10 Aug 2007|10:23am]
Doesn't look like there's too much new news, probably courtesy of LJ not saying any frakking thing and the commenters having said just about everything they possibly can that's reasoned and polite.

But, there is this from the middle of the not-quite-yet maxxed out [info]lj_biz post preceeding the one that asked for our feedback: which is excerpted from this.

[info]twocorpses has made a community for Scribblit ([info]scribblit) which is a place for people who want to help out with the project but didn't get in on the beta testing, people who are interested in knowing what's happening, and people who want to send suggestions. She will still be posting updates on her LJ, but I'd suggest if you're truly interested in the project to join the new comm, too.

Aaaand once again... [10 Aug 2007|02:33pm]
There's an interesting article in the New York Times about online obscenity...

Wonderful comments in the [info]lj_biz post here and continued below it because of length. If they would just listen to people who have such reasoned and helpful suggestions, they'd be doing so much better...

43 pages on the second to last [info]lj_biz post, because the initial one where they asked for our feedback filled up um... the day after it was posted. (Posted 6:44pm (Pacific time) on August 7; last comment 1:52pm (Eastern time) on August 8 (I know this was the last one, because I tried to comment after it and it said it had maxxed out). There are a few after that but that's because someone was going around deleting comments and that freed up some slots for additional ones. The second post has 4362 comments at the moment, and I think the only reason it isn't maxxed out, too, is that we're trying to avoid things like cat macros and other frivolity and post serious comments, and most of the serious comments have already been said at this point. All that's left is waiting for someone to actually address them. *sigh*

[info]oulangi has a good post on Journalfen Concerns with what is probably the best quote regarding LJ/6A since that Slashdot article: "At this point I think LJ bought all the surplus stupid they could lay their hands on and are planning the IPO in order to raise funds and run out to buy more stupid."

And: BBB complaint )
