1. The previous post, about my first CD being available on Bandcamp, has drawn at least twenty spam comments. You haven’t seen these, because they’ve all been caught and quarantined, and then I went and
stomped them mercilessly deleted them with a simple click. I hadn’t noticed any spam comments in quite a long time. I hope it’s not because of the link in the post.
2. LJ has redesigned the friends feed, user profile, and (so I see now) the post new entry page. I guess it looks nice and everything works as it should. But it triggered my knee-jerk ire over gratuitous change. Oh, maybe there are some behind-the-scenes things that work better. I’m just seeing so many websites changing their user interface so it’s all kleen and has cute little icons that you have to figure out what they do, and you have to find features that are hidden now though you used to use them all the time. I’m still unhappy over the changes Flickr implemented a few weeks ago. At least the LJ changes aren’t that user-unfriendly. I just wish web developers could let things be for a while, that’s all.
OK, enough of my grouchiness. There’s a trip to write about; I’ll try to get that up soon.
