Seems the official LJ app now allows me to read my friends list (yay!) But i still cant find comments to be able to unscreen them. Guess that will have to wait for a future update or whenever i get to my home computer, whichevef comes first.

I know a few of you here have TypePad blogs.  I'm thinking of switching.  I currently have self-hosted wordpress that is privately hosted with a blog friend in Australia, but she prefers to do all the updates to avoid anyone breaking the server, so things don't get updated.  I thought about just switching to another host, but I really don't have the time or inclination to learn how to do the constant back-end updating that needs to be done.  I just want to blog.

About a year or so ago, I thought about going back to Blogger, but they won't import blogs from other formats, only other blogger blogs, so I can't do that, and I don't want to individually move every single post and comment.  Has anyone used the import tool from WP to Typepad?  Also, the mid-priced plan allows full template customization.  Is it worth it?  How much will I be able to customize with only the $8.95 plan?  Is the extra $5/mo worth it?

OK, so the wait while the ads on LJ show themselves is frustrating, but at least when I go to read my friends page, I see everything. Facebook, on the other hand, is driving me to drink. An "algorithm" decides what I need to see in my live feed. I've tried adding people in through the "edit options" so I can see everything, and it still doesn't change it. Then I'll refresh, and as if by magic, everything is there. Another refresh and it disappears. I don't understand - I don't understand how to get to see everything I want, because it doesn't work when I follow the directions, I don't understand why FB feels the need to constantly fuck with things, and I don't understand why they aren't losing their user base left and right because of all this shit.

I give up for now. I need chocolate. And a drink, but I'm still at work.

I added a bunch of people from OS.  If I missed anyone who wants to read me, let me know.  Some people I didn't add because I can't figure out who is who and I didn't have my handy dandy cross-site handle cheat sheet with me, so let me know who you are if you want to be added.

It snowed here the other day, but not in the part of Las Vegas that I live or work in, because I'm on the valley floor - the lowest part of the valley.  Now it's snowing here at work, and home isn't that much lower an elevation so there's a good chance it's snowing there as well.

Does anyone know how to fix this issue I'm having?  It seems that on a semi-regular but not exactly scheduled basis, I get logged out of almost all the sites I'm logged into.  This affects message boards such as OS and a few others all the time, LJ some of the time, and Yahoo and Google rarely.  I've checked my settings and control panel and I can't see how to fix it at all.  I don't delete my cookies or clear personal data or any of that stuff, and this is a new issue since I got the Vista + Firefox 3 combo.  It never happened like this on my XP machine, and it never happened when I used the Vista laptop with FF2.  My inclination is to think it's a FF3 issue, but I don't know how to change it.  Can anyone help?

Your Existing Situation

    Sensitive and understanding but under some strain; needs to unwind in the company of someone close to him.

Your Stress Sources

    Delights in the tasteful, the gracious, and the sensitive, but maintains her attitude of critical appraisal and refuses to be swept off her feet unless genuineness and integrity can be absolutely vouched for. Therefore keeps a strict and watchful control on her emotional relationships as she must know exactly where she stands. Demands complete sincerity as a protection against her own tendency to be too trusting.

Your Restrained Characteristics

    Circumstances are such that she feels forced to compromise for the time being if she is to avoid being cut off from affection or from full participation.

    Wants to broaden her fields of activity and insists that her hopes and ideas are realistic. Distressed by the fear that she may be prevented from doing what she wants; needs both peaceful conditions and quiet reassurance to restore her confidence.

    Circumstances force her to compromise and to forgo some pleasures for the time being. Capable of achieving physical satisfaction through sexual activity.

Your Desired Objective

    Wants to make a favorable impression and be recognized. Needs to feel appreciated and admired. Sensitive and easily hurt if no notice is taken of her or if she is not given adequate acknowledgment.

Your Actual Problem

Works to strengthen her position and bolster her self-esteem by examining her own accomplishments (and those of others) with critical appraisal and scientific discrimination. Insists on having things clear-cut and unequivocal
