A Good Week

This past weenk was quite goond. I got my TEUNC CD, replete with TEUNCs singing and being crazy, and it was great good fun. The Federation of Wibbletrask grew into a large nation in NationStates (and TEUNC found a gnu haven for our trade and war games [1]). I got me a G4, as I mentioned on Friday. And now we are on Fall Break (through next Wednesday). Whee!

Ooo, executing spammers! BwahaHAHAHA!


[1] As this is an internal TEUNC thing [2], I shan't say more about it, but you can find the Balrog Cuttings region easily enough in Jennifer Government: NationStates. [3]
[2] We are also thinking about writing a simulator of our own (not necessarily a "plug-in" per se, but conceptually compatible with Max Barry's original idea. I think there are many directions to go with it - geopolitics, economics, Sims and SimCity-type games, etc.
[3] I'm thinking about buying the electronic version of the book. I will advise you all and review it here if I do.

Bana, do you save up your entries before posting? Cos I keep seeing them in bunches of days all posted together. Did you change you LJ client, or are you just faking the dates so it looks like you wrote every day on your entries page (but it looks weird via a friends, especially when you say "as I mentioned on friday" and the entry only appeared in today)

Yee, I've been kindasorta cheating a bit acos I was totally swamped with sutff the last coupla weenks. I'll get to updetting a little more regularly now (atleast, there won't be bax-to-bax comments in most Friends pages).

Why are you so bothered about making it look like you wrote them on different days? That's what confused me.

Oh, that - sorry:

1. Convenience, acos I like being able to page bax and froth through my archive without hitting "there is no entry on this day", (which throws me orf). Also, I export XML in case I ever decide to embed my LJ elsewere.

As erebrandir says, some weblogs are blogs and some are journals. Mine's a little of both, but as you can see from my archive style, I do think of it as a journal first.

Convenience is aslo one reason I don't have Friends-Only entries; the "you don't have permission to view this protected entry" stops the page-browser deead in its tracks. (Hrm, maybe a "skip" feature could be an LJ wish-list item.)

2. Force of habit (read: mild obsessive-compulsiveness) - this is actually a secondary consideration in this case. :-)

That's not descibing convenience, but a personal quirk. It takes the same effort to click two entry day, no entry day, one entry day as it does to click past only one entry a days.

???? Friends only are marked, or not shown, when looking through the archive. (I can't rember how memories deals with them though)

I read it as habit or quirk.

Whatever you say. I only asked the question so you'd think about it :)

Well, yes, it's the same effort, but you know how procrastination-prone I am. If I skipped a day, I'd easily skip a week or two, and then it really might be a nuisance to click over a lot of no-entry days.

As for convenience, you might have seen how I prefer to cite:
http://www.livejournal.com/users/banazir/2003/10/12
instead of:
http://www.livejournal.com/users/banazir/58192.html

This is because I can't remember 58192, but I can remember 12 Oct 2003. Multiple entries trask this scheme, is lal.

Oh, and I like the aesthetic control of being able to set the archive scheme. I never bothered to look up whether one can do it in Reply mode. I think I have seen mrowe and erebrandir do it... maybe it's a paid users feature, in which case I'll look into it when I subscribe. (I've been putting it off just acos I haven't the time to fiddle endlessly with the look the way I know I would.)

It is a quirk, I'm sure, but those are my reasons.

2. Force of habit (read: mild obsessive-compulsiveness)
I read it as habit or quirk.
Well, yes - to clarify, it's personally preferable for me to have one entry per day, but it doesn't bother me a whit if my friends have them.

this is actually a secondary consideration in this case. :-)

Sure. I lawaz appreciate yer making me think; it's teuncy. :o)

Sorry, I meant "reply mode" (also used by Memories). That definitely halts on Friends-Only posts and you have to go all the way back to the calendar and jump to the previous day. The biggest problem with this is if a friend has:

Public - FO - Public

in one day, acos there's no way to get at the public ones in archive OR reply mode at all; you HAVE to go to the calendar and look at the whole day, and then you can't see the thread.

I like to have the whole thread in front of me when replying late to a psot (or just when there have been many replies already).

Ooha, Balrog Cuttings is getting a bit big for me... I'm OK with NS stuff, but I don't understand [sranje] in Teuncnation, and just looking at those elaborate posts makes me feel weak. I have a feeling that another of my valiant attempts at anything RPGy will go down in flames. Ah well...


Hugs,

Oh, dknot give up taht easily, Haxie! It takes lal kinds to make NS (or rather, TEUNC's own special brand of it) fnu.

F'rinstance, Morgil is turning the current thread into a mini-Murdertext, or at least a Shire Post-style fanfic with a little James Bond, Mission: Impossible, and Charlie's Angels thrown in. Earlier, we crossed NS with Pearl Harbor, PoTC, and a dash of Venetian plotics! Wot can I say... it's TEUNC. But we can each find our corner of the playground, yernow? Chacun a son teunce.

That said, Teuncnation isn't fro everybuddy. Some (Magenta, Prad, me, DF) play both, some (Yoj, Gondhir) play NS but not TN yet, others (Dranreb) have elected knot to subscribe, and still others (MOM, Arwen) don't play either.

sranje == merde?

Re: The Wide World
Merde! Ooh la la! Oui oui! :D

Yeah, you're right. NS I'm fine with but TN isn't my thing. I'll stick with the BC messageboard. :)

Btw, what's so terrible about faking dates? I mean, who pays constant attention to when something happened? I read TEUNC LiveJournals now & then to know what you peeps are up to, and I'd think most people do the same. That said, I'm not an LJ user so maybe there's something about its inner workings, or there's an unspoken code among the initiated... ;)

Nahh, it's just mildly anozzling (I imagine) when one's Friends List gets a flood of consecutive psots that are bax dated and out of order with the others. I thry knot to do this too much, but sometimes I get 1-2 wee huors free to psot and that's it.
