Annoyingly spelled words du jour:
See also in the lj_dev - possible changes in how the friends list works. Again, brad shows that he's not very good with social or communication skills, but it's easy enough to get the picture. A lot of people don't understand the function of what he said, and will get upset, even though it's not a big deal. I've always disliked the term friends for folks I read on LJ, because it's too emotionally charged a word for a lot of people. It's the cause of a lot of lj drama. I do think the ideas for change seem reasonable, all told, but I won't personally use many of them... I use filters now and again, for my essentials / comics page/ whatnot and that's about it. I agree with what flying_blind says here. While I'm nosy, and would like to know who reads my journal... I know full well that any public entry can be syndicated or bookmarked, or whatnot without my knowledge, and I'm fine with that. (plus, if you want to get tricky, you can always hide a sitemeter link in each of your entries, to see where hits come from on the net... maybe brad can implement usage statistics sometime, and make it that much simpler?)
Watched the Repo Men Show on TLC last night was interesting.. It may be another "Reality" one that I enjoy, like Cops or Animal Precinct. I prefer the stuff to be in the field, rather than bottled on an island or in a household.
I think I'll set up my VCR to record the next airing of the Ancient Egyptians shows. They're showing the whole series in a 4-hour block on Sunday the 14th, starting at 3pm, and running through 7pm. Makes it nice and easy to fit on a single tape.
