The end of the branch

Not without regret because of all the friends and connections here, I am nonetheless forced to declare this journal inactive. After nearly six years and 60,000 comments given and received, I have reached the end of my tolerance for the obnoxious antics of today's LiveJournal management. (AffiliateGate is the last straw.)

For the past year, I have been posting in parallel at This morning I triggered the process that will copy all of my LJ posts from 2004 forward, and all of your comments as well, over to that site. It may take a day or so for the dust to settle, but I'm assured that it works.

You are welcome to follow my posts over there, should you choose to do so. The URL is, and you will find that you can log in there using OpenID and comment if you choose. The software is still the LJ you know, so there's little more you need to learn beyond the OpenID login. Or you can create a free account there if you prefer that. All of you have already been authorized as my friends there, and can comment via OpenID now.

I will no longer be double-posting here.

To borrow a well-turned phrase from the late Douglas Adams, "So long, and thanks for all the fish." Really. Thanks. I hope I'll still be seeing you all.
