It's been really hot here. Way beyond my normal tolerance, as the temperatures are usually in the 70s F/ 20s C. Yesterday it was 91 F / 32.8 C! Today 89/ 31.6. I know that's normal summer for lots of people (even 10 miles inland or south), but we're wusses. Berkeley has eight to twelve really hot days a year, so we don't have air conditioning, even a swamp cooler, and our house just gets hot and stays hot. So please forgive me when I sound a bit addled and/or do not comment on something.

I'm checking out dreamwidth, and have msilverstar over (t)here. Not that I don't think about changing to a username that is slightly less hippy-fantasy and/or is easier to abbreviate (m? msil? just doesn't work), but, nahhh, I'll just keep it.

On DWO, you can subscribe to accounts via OpenID, and read, comment, see locked posts, etc. etc. But I won't sub back because those OpenID accounts can't post anything, so it bothers my sense of logic.

The thing I dislike most about the fracturing of journals is that comments are scattered and some conversations that might have happened just never connect. C'est la vie.

Also the Dreamwidth folks promise basic accounts with no ads, so I may well move some of my community accounts there. I hate knowing there are people coming to one of my journals and seeing banner ads, Not even google-type text ads, but big colorful flashing banners. This is is basic users, plus users, and anyone not logged in to LJ, -- paid logged-in users are supposed to never see the ads. So it's a shock to log out and see the junk everywhere.

I'll be cross-posting for the foreseeable future, I couldn't leave my peeps at LJ/JF/IJ! *clutches you all*

Good news = you've had several of this year's hot days already. Rest of the summer should be cake. (Join me in ignoring the possibility that this will be an ugly anomalous year!)

I'm so hoping that's the case. It was so lovely today, cool but still sunny. *clings to good weather*

Well if all of you are wusses then I'm one with you. This are is terminally hot in the summer and I have no idea why I've lived here for so long. Give me 70s max for summer heat and I'd be happy. April should be in the 50s, maybe 60s on a warm day. I'm afraid we're going to be in the 80s all weekend and that will not make me happy.
