Hello! This journal is semi-Flocked.


That means that once in a while I make friends-locked posts, but most of the time I don't. Feel free to friend me, and if your journal is to my liking, I might friend you back. The chances of my friending you back are greatly increased by you leaving a comment on this post, letting me know who you are and why you've friended me. I post rarely and haven't paid much attention to non-community posts on my flist for a while, now, so don't be offended if I've quickly unfriended you - that's just me keeping things tidy.

Follow me on tumblr @mizufae

Almost everything I do or am interested in, I post or talk about on my tumblr. Please follow me to see what I'm being nerdy about these days.

ETA: New Tumblr flavor is crapadoodle-do. I'll be making occasional posts and attempting to be a little active over here on DW as I see how the dust settles.

Tumblr is super duper ultra broken, can everybody come be on DW now and we can resume our regularly schedule fannish hoodlyhoo?

TUMBLR IS SLOW AND DEAD.

Things I would be interested in from people's DW's:

- Links to cool stuff!
- Fic recs and fandom discussion about any of my fandoms, of which my primary two at the moment seem to be Stargate Atlantis and Merlin? But like, all that other crap I love too, you know.
- YOU AND YOUR LIFE AND WHAT IS GOING ON WITH YOU. WE CAN BE FRIENDS LET'S BE FRIENDS
- Crafts and arts and all, particularly crochet and embroidery and collage and costuming and what y'all are getting up to in those arenas.

Kelly was all freaking out about me, like "BUT WHAT DO I WRITE, I CAN'T JUST WRITE A BABBLY TEXT POST ON DREAMWIDTH" and I am here to tell you: YES YOU CAN.

HERE IS A BABBLY TEXT POST ON DREAMWIDTH FROM ME TO YOU:

I think new tumblr is butts. It is slow and I can't reblog myself and it's slow and I can't fast-reblog things and DID I MENTION THAT IT IS SLOW and by the way did you READ that pretentious fappery of a news update about it? Jesus christ, that was some high grade opaque BULLSHAZZ.

MORE BLAH BLAH BLAH:

If you want to put an IMAGE in a DREAMWIDTH POST you gotta host the image SOMEWHERE ELSE. But GUESS WHAT?

YOU CAN HOST THAT IMAGE ON YOUR TUMBLR. EXAMPLE A:



Just post the image on your tumblr, or a SECRET LOCKED-DOWN TUMBLR THAT NOBODY KNOWS ABOUT, and then right-click on the image and select "View Image" Then copy and paste the url of the image into simple html. Just [img src=QUOTEurlQUOTE] (but replace the square brackets with angle brackets, and the words QUOTE with actual " marks.)

THAT IS ALL AND GOOD NIGHT

Oh Dreamwidth, you are a strange beast. I'm sure I'll get used to you... never. But if you get community importation up and running, then perhaps fandom can finally free itself from LJ once and for all? I know that people are going to IJ and DW and it's being kinda hinky all around, but really, fandom is a hobby like any other and I'm willing to drop a little cashmoney on it.

The thing is that I use LJ's Scrapbook for almost all of my image hosting needs. I need a replacement and I'm willing to pay money for it but nothing seems to actually have the functionality of scrapbook whatsoever. I'm at the point where I am seriously considering hosting my own server at home all the time. But for that I would then need to find custom gallery software????? I don't even freaking know, man.

I just want scrapbook, with maybe some updated, cleaner code, and not hosted on LJ. I will pay money for this. I need a place I can have ~5000 image files hosted. I need image galleries I can link to people that can be edited for ordering of images and hopefully a tagging system. I need a way to view fullsized images. I need hotlinking to be okay. And I need a way to leave some textual info alongside the images, like a description on the individual pictures in gallery view or a description of the gallery/folder itself.

I do not want a bunch of flash bullshit or drag&drop upload whatever or image editing software or auto resizing or anything like that. I want to give my money to someone for this. But who??? Where???
mizufae: (Default)
HAHAHAA oh my gosh, dreamwidth, what even ARE you, how I mine for fish???

ANYWAY in light of LJ going arse over elbow, here I am. I SUGGEST TUMBLR ALSO: http://mizufae.tumblr.com/ and possibly g-chat adventures??? I AM SO BORED AND DISTRAUGHT ABOUT UNRELATED THINGS, WHERE DO I FANDOM?
