So, er… hi. As you might notice from looking at my journal, I've moved. There is now hopefully nothing of mine of which LiveJournal holds the only copy. This makes me happy. :-) Reasons will be explained in a final post to LJ shortly. I've just friended a whole bunch of you whom I think I know from LJ. If any of you have filters you'd like me to be on, then as always, I'm happy to read anything you're happy for me to read.



Posts earlier than this point were migrated from LiveJournal; they have a few problems (such as no comments, usernames refer to IJ, no link to original entry, polls should be copied in static form, etc.) I will fix these at some point, using data I have already downloaded, in my copious free time.

I thought someone might ask. :-) I'm going to post about this soon, but the general idea is to use ljmigrate.py (a Python script) and, yes, it can migrate between any pair of sites that are based on LiveJournal (it produces an "entry correspondences map" that I hope to use to copy the additional data I mentioned above). I'll also be writing about how to create prettier feeds with userpics and stuff, like shortcipher_ij at LiveJournal (still some issues to fix with that and it's quite a lengthy, fiddly process).
