8126 - lj shakeup

GeotargetCool Icon of the moment - if you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate

Worked Late both Tuesday and Wednesday...I'm hoping that I can but out a bit early today or ideally tomorrow, maybe to give me time to pick up big brain if it's all better by then.

Well, this might calm down some holier than thou Mozilla preachers out there (don't get me wrong, I surely prefer firefox over MSIE - but anytime somethinggets a new feature, some clown will find a way to clog the pipes.) Problematic enough that Livejournal is reformatting how page URLs are laid out. Added Kudos to LJ_maint for being about as vague as possible regarding this issue in the meantime. [update - news clarifies things a bit better here. ]

My suspicions about Lost seem to be coming to light -
From Damon Lindelof (one of the creators of the show) - "If you're watching the show because you're waiting for the big answers to come, you have to understand that by the nature of what it is -- it's not a movie, it's not a series of movies, it's not a trilogy, it's not a miniseries -- it's going to be on the air for as long as ABC wants to keep it on the air...how can you ever possibly think that Lost will end in a satisfying way? Carlton (the other co creator) and I can almost guarantee you that it will not."
That said, I still dug the Mr. Eko/Charlie/Island Monster Episode enough to follow along. I just won't plan for it all to come together in any good way when the show ends... I'll just toss it in the box with X-files, Twin Peaks, and the rest. Like those, when it turns to poop, I'll stop watching, until someone recommends a particular episode. Heck, I'd already resigned myself to that anyhow.
