christinex1001: (Default) going on with the new home page? Has LJ gone mad?

I'm cranky because technology has been making me its bitch all afternoon. [grumble]

Tired, cranky, and bored. I hate being stuck back in this place in the afternoons just because of political bullshit. Someone needs to explain politely to the powers-that-be around here that graphic designers really don't do their best in a place that echoes with the cacophonous sounds of air hockey, pool, and sixty middle-schoolers screaming at one another. Not to mention all the rec leaders who look on this office as another hallway and not, you know, someone's office. I really don't want to quit, but if it's this bad now I can only imagine how bad it's going to be once the little darlings are out of school for the summer.

I just seriously find it hard to believe that there isn't one open desk someplace else in a city building where I could relocate.

On the other hand, I did see the awesome insult of "obviating fuckbucket" used in a LJ comm today, so it hasn't been all bad. :-P

I'm thinking I should change my LJ layout at some point. I am not abandoning the dear Professor, but considering I'm into all sorts of stuff, maybe it's time for something a bit more...generic. Well, maybe "generic" is the wrong word. Just something that reflects more of me and less of one fandom. Hmm. I've been immersed fairly heavily in HP for the past year or so, but now I'm getting the urge to write Star Wars again. Although I know I'd better update Quality of Mercy before I unleash a new SW fic, or I'm sure to have people after me with pitchforks, and at this point I'm pretty sure I don't have the energy to run that fast.

I have to say, though, that part of me isn't looking forward to wrestling with LJ's "new" supposed user-friendly way of manipulating layouts. It seems as if every time they make an upgrade (to use the term loosely), it's always more of a pain to deal with. Speaking of LJ and its occasional suckitude, you just gotta love how they tried to quietly take away the Basic account option (if you're brand new and try to sign up now, you only get a choice of an ad-riddled Plus account or a Paid account). I have a Paid account just because I wanted more options and didn't want to deal with the crappy-looking ads on a Plus account, but for a company that says it doesn't want to be MySpace, LJ (sorry, forgot the acronym for the Russkis who now own the company) isn't doing a very good job of differentiating itself. And lo! a new shitstorm has erupted. I haven't followed much of it, but let's just say the few bits I read this morning indicated that the average LJ user isn't very happy right about now.

It's always something, isn't it?

ETA: And the kerfluffle has already hit Fandom Wank. My gut instincts never let me down. :-P
