The move is imminent.
I have left this alone for a long time because as irritating as LiveJournal can be, it kept working and if it's not broken, why fix it? The comments section there was always a bit of a pain but useable.
Now the comments section isn't sending notifications any more. I'm getting told about new comments anything up to two days after they've been posted. So I have to troll my own blog to look for new comments, which is bizarre.
It's driving me to drink, I tell you. Oh wait, I was already there. It's driving me away from drink then. That's even worse.
So it's time to fiddle with this new blog format, try not to break it, and then move. It will make life easier in the long run although I'll have to be careful because another incarnation uses Blogspot and he's not tolerant of competition. There might be occasional deleted comments if I accidentally post as another me.
The longer LiveJournal's comments are delayed, the more likely it'll be that I'll make the move before I give up and carve 'HTML is evil' into the dust-laden casing of my stone age computer.
I need a good 'reaper' graphic first. That shouldn't be hard to find.
The badges, I'll probably leave on the old blog. It would be wrong to put them on a blog that hasn't earned them yet.
I wonder, is it possible to download an entire blog, or should I have been keeping copies all along?
Ah well, time to play at HTML amateur. I hope I don't break it, but it was free so what the hell.
