If it's a scam, it needs to become true

New Star Wars merchandising... - link from silverthoughts

Ditto for this : 14 days of paid time offered by LJ in compensation for the Power Failure, to all paid accounts. Oh, squee.

You know, ever since I've been on LJ, I think I got a full month and a lil' more of "free" paid time due to little commercial gestures like that. Sure, it means there ARE problems to make up for every once in a while, but what service hasn't? And how many services offer you something for your troubles without a lot of hassle?

I think LJ is the only one I've seen that does it.


In other news...
- found and finished the 2nd proofread of "Wipe Out"
- which means I'll be able to put it on FF.net gradually, and on my website too
- booked a ticket
- am in the way of getting rid of a few other "things to do"
Yaye! Being productive rules.

I was reading about the LJ black out on Slashdot today. Basically they said that they didn't like how LJ posted updates on the situation because it was worded unprofessionally as compared to Six Apart where it gave a very standard professional update.

I would much rather see LJ's form of updating problems because it shows they were doing something. As opposed to the Six Apart site where it states that there is a power outage. And it hasn't been updated since.

Yeah, I want to get some clues of what's going on. "Being professional" is, if I judge from most companies, ignoring problems when they occur and not communicating on them in case possible customers would hear about them and avoid their services in the future...
Current customers? They don't care, these ones are already paying, no market to "win".
