Also this week: More DDOS attacks on LJ, which make me all the more determined to stay. My jaw is set. Despite the politically-motivated annoyance, there were some fun things posted on summer_of_giles this week. Today is the free-for-all day, so we should see even more fun stuff. One thing I've been loving all month has been the season-by-season icons by harmony033.
I wandered away from my real-life Google Plus account in complete boredom. I did the same with Facebook so there's something about the medium that doesn't work for me. Twitter, on the other hand, remains my favorite lightweight social networking service.
I posted "Arms and the Man" to my fic archive, to FF.net, and to AO3. By far the easiest posting experience was to my own site, and that was the one that didn't involve pasting text into a web form. Edit a text file, run a script, run rsync to push static files to my host. Second was FF.net, which I made more complex than it had to be by breaking the story into chapters. (It seemed to suit the ff.net reading experience better than all in one file; ff.net affords multi-chapter epics really well.) Last was AO3, where I was once again baffled by the tagging experience. Usually I just bail and don't use tags at all there. This time I made an attempt then deleted a bunch of them.
And now it's time to do the newsletter! Assuming LJ's attackers will let me.
