all a-Twitter

I got a Twitter account. Yup. Found out about it through InsaneJournal. (Found IJ through GreatestJournal… GJ through Livejournal… LJ through message boards and friends… EZBoard through C… Don’t know why I’m recounting references all of a sudden…)

I got it mostly to stick on my blog so I won’t go without updating my blog in some fashion, but won’t deluge my blog with short, fairly pointless entries.

I’m disappointed that I can’t tweak it more than it is now though. (Well, if I took out the ul navigation from the sidebar I could. Or if I bloated my CSS with specific styling for each, which I hate.)

I don’t understand how Shari (sharii.com) got hers the way she did. How’d she get her updates inserted into p tags?? And how’d she insert those special characters?? And how’d she get the updates to show up regularly in code instead of using Javascript and a blank ul??

:( I don’t like my Twitter code.

GJ iz LJ omg!

Fudge. There’s an update to the update for WordPress. >_> But it’s only to fix something with the feeds, trackbacks and pingbacks. (Or so they say.) Since I don’t use those (I think?), I won’t upgrade for a while. >b

I don’t understand something. On GreatestJournal, they’ve changed to the new update page that Livejournal put up a while ago. (Checked past news: September of last year.) I‘m happy, because I’ve been waiting for it for a while … I like seeing what icon and mood I’m going to use. But then other people are complaining because it’s too confusing, or it’s stupid, or it’s ugly, or it’s too big (that one I agree with, although on IE it’s not? weird), or it’s too much like LJ.

That last one I don’t understand. People keep commenting on that news update entry that GJ should stop copying LJ. Huh? Hasn’t it always copied LJ? (Well, not always, like with their tags…) Isn’t the whole system just based on LJ? *snerk*

I don’t remember what I first thought of the new update page. Maybe I wanted the old one back for a few days because of that “Paid Account options” box, and some other things they worked out, but I got used to it. I like the new update page … I wouldn’t want any other. So nice and neat and organized. Instead of a plain text list of options that you’d have to go to another page entirely for … Sometimes I’d get the options mixed up if I wasn’t paying attention. ^^;;

Some people said they liked GJ better because it wasn’t LJ. That just completely confused me. What’s wrong with LJ? Seriously, I don’t know. I don’t pay attention to what other people say about LJ much. The only stereotype/generalization I know of any LJ source code-based journal site is that LJ is teen-filled with all teh angstness and drama.

Oh well. Yes, I’m being “lamezorz” and talking about LJ and GJ on my WP-based blog. *snerk*

Bedtime now, yayayay … *hoppy* ‘Tis so hot though… (I don’t like WordPress changing my three dots into that one ASCII character, whatever it is … alt code 0133)
