a small reason why the UN is so important.

kofi annan can go to bahda aceh. bush can only go to thailand. kofi annan can walk among the refugees. bush can only do a flyover.

i'm not saying bush should do what annan is doing, only that he can't. it's sad that he can't, though.

time will tell.

i trust brad, even though i don't know him, but he is no longer in control.

this was inevitable, and it seems like brad took some pains to make sure he found someone he was comfortable with and someone who understands what makes lj the kind of forum it is.

i think it is more likely that sixapart's other platforms will become more like lj than the other way around. lj is better, after all :)

i doubt we will see popup ads any time soon, and if we do, it will be on the free journals, and i have a damn good popup stopper.

somebody, somewhere is developing a tool to migrate my entire journal to another site if i ever want to.

brad deserves all the success and monetary reward he is getting out of this deal. he has enriched all of our lives.

after reading both his and sixapart's posts on the matter, i feel much more (if not completely) comfortable with the merger.

some bored teenagers decided to tag my fence:





so i decided to beat them at their own game. i went out and bought some spraypaint and masking tape:





more to come!

ok, maybe i'm worrying too much too soon, but i emailed the buyer of the painting (who isn't from lj) right after the auction, and still haven't heard anything. they have a good rating...

anyway, i just sent an official invoice. i guess if they welch, pitamakin gets it :)
