Wide Awake Club

It's four in the morning
And all through the house,
Every creature was stirring,
Especially the spouse.

The vision of sugarplums danced such a jig,
Spouse snoring as loud as a flatulent pig.
Prod 2 in his room making all a clatter,
Last vestige of peace is now all of a shatter.

Ms Pye wants to give their ear holes a flick,
And vows next year to elope with Saint Nick.

LJ - The Plot Thickens

For a start, that is not my IP address - I entered both domain name and personal IP separately HERE and got two distinctly different addresses.  I did the same with my Dreamwidth account and found that it was still in the USA, primarily at Virginia and Wisconsin. Above is my LiveJournal domain, which in addition tells me where the servers have relocated to. It looks like they moved lock stock just over three weeks ago.  Thing is, in real terms, what does that mean for me?

Well, when it came to case-sensitive material, I haven't really logged anything - the days when the net was comparatively free of hackers has long gone. Not that they would be that interested in what essentially is just housekeeping. However, I do have a couple or so pieces of written work, which (let's face it) will not be up for the Man Booker prize anytime soon, but of which I want to retain my autonomous hold.  Thing is, these days (especially with the turn round of our political scene) who would you trust MORE? Our 'Russian Friends' or our 'American Friends' (though it must be said, Dreamwidth don't appear to have a decernable agenda and in theory, nor do SUP)?

But for the record, SUP - just what IS your game, exactly?

LJ/Dreamwidth Question

I am in the midst of importing LJ to Dreamwidth, think it's gonna be a tad busy for a while - anyone know how long this may take? I have 3,431 entries, 7,019 comments posted, 7,495 comments received.  I think we might be a tad overreacting, but I prefer to know where my files are if LJ's plug is suddenly pulled.
