 Wow, it's been three-quarters of a year since I've written anything here. Well, it's not like I don't have so many other blogs. Anyway, here is my new (current) plan: make the twitter thing my base, and blog/post/write wherever I want, and use twitter to link. So much better I think than being confined to one website to write in. You don't have just one book in your house or outfit in your closet, right? Right?

Anyway, re Doctor Who: just can't work up the enthusiasm. I really wish Matt Smith would do more non-Who work but I guess filming that takes up too much time. I'm getting the urge to watch old classic eps, though, even ones I've seen before, and I've seen most of them now. Just need to watch some of the 6th and 7th Doctor serials (well, I don't really need to, but I'm a completist), and also the 1st Doctor ones they've finally released to dvd, and maybe I'll force myself to watch that 2nd Doctor one that had part of it redone as a cartoon because they lost the master tapes. Urk.

Okay! It looks like whatever was slowing down the site yesterday is over with, for now. Maybe it was something to do with LiveJournal's DDOS problems. A lot of people use this site as backup for their LJs, so maybe there was a sudden surge in cross-posting. Whatever, I'm not going to crosspost to my defunct LiveJournal site. I've also decided not to move the old entries over here. I've got them saved on a flash drive, for what that's worth.

More later.

Update: ah ha, no, the site slowdowns have something to do with a memory leak or some other arcane webserver thing I don't understand. Look, my first link!

Okay, I've changed the theme to this purplish one with a photo of mountains at sunset for the header. It's pretty and easy to read and loads fast -- well, as fast as Dreamwidth loads which today isn't all that fast. I wonder if it has something to do with the DDOS attack on LiveJournal. Oh well.

I've changed my mind (for now) about moving all my old journal entries from the LJ one to here. For one thing, I've saved them on a flash drive anyway. For another, they are mostly quite old -- the oldest are ten years old! And there aren't that many of them, and a few of the more recent ones are crossposted to other sites of mine. And I've decided this site is going to be a fresh new site, sort of. I don't know what the focus will be yet. Maybe Doctor Who. I have the Tumblr site, but I've been getting bored with Tumblr; some of the "improvements" they have are not improvements if you ask me. Tumblr is great for reblogging or showing photos, but for discussion it sucks. I have a serious website elsewhere, but I'm not sure I want to link to it, or to my Tumblr site, or any of my sites. I kind of want this site to be separate from all that.

I'm not sure that I like the kind of semi-closed community system of sites like Dreamwidth and LiveJournal, but they do have their charms. I just know that I've been bored with writing on blogs for a while but I need to do something -- I'm not going to give up blogging and let the marketers and shills have it all.
