Weird. I've read that LJ has laid off several staffers and that it's going through hard times, and a bunch of people are nervously trying to download or back up their journals. Only thing is, most of the protocols don't appear to be working all that smoothly, and none of them are easy on a Mac. I don't even have a PC anymore -- or at least, I do, but it's mothballed in my furnace room.

I just scanned quickly through some old entries to see what I have here, and I realized that you know what? I don't think I'd miss any of these entries if the whole thing went up in smoke. I used to have quite a strong attachment to the words I wrote in here, but I'm not so sure I'd be that broken up about it if they were all deleted.

I would, however, miss the connections with all the people on here that I've made. Although in that respect too, most of the friends I made earlier in my LJ times (2000-2003 was when I was the most active, I think) are either gone from LJ or have drastically decreased their participation such as I have.

Could anyone who's reading this post who knows me or feels a connection to me from the past please comment here and/or send me an e-mail (iamom at livejournal dot com) with your contact info? I'd love to stay in touch after the fact, and God knows what's really going to happen to this fantastic forum. In the meantime, if I have time and the inclination, I'll try to download my journal for posterity's sake. 1,628 journal entries dating back to June, 2000. Wow. This could be the end of an era.

According to this, there was a week-long membership extension offered to paid members as a result of the power outage awhile ago. How did I miss that notification? Did anyone else catch it? It's over now, the bastards. I didn't see anything!

(Edit: I see now that it was issued the day before Max was born. I guess that's why I missed it.)

The default display for my LJ tags appears to be a simple alphabetical list:

I would rather, however, see them displayed in descending order by usage, if not more ideally as a cloud (examples: brad | wickenden on del.icio.us).

Does anyone know how to do this? Changing the order on my tags management page doesn't translate to my LJ. [livejournal.com profile] bridgetester? LJ's FAQs on tags don't seem to address this. Is it perhaps not currently a feature on LJ?
