wtf

Finally! (?)

I have had my LJ for over 5 years. 5½ to be exact. LJ/SixApart have FINALLY given us things that we have been asking for in suggestions for at least that long (well, definitely the first one - and perhaps two - in this news post):

Comment Editing and Private Messaging!!! Finally!!!

ETA: I have already had to use comment editing in my first reply below!

BUT: You can only edit a comment until someone replies to it. I can see why they do this (so that you can't say "I didn't say that - look!") but all other forums online allow editing always or not at all - none of this half-arsed maybe/maybe-not crap... :(((

My comment on paidmembers.

I now return you to your previously scheduled livejournal, natf and 'friends' page...

[nablopomo] Fame?

I put natalief into my browser address bar and hit enter by mistake without auto-completing my livejournal URL first. Firefox does a google search if what you type is not a .com and I got this:
Nearly all of the first page are, at time of typing, ME! Okay, not the blogger or NatsWiki ones.

I must admit that I have been natalief for about 13 or 14 years now, online and natalieford or nataliesford for seven. I have always tried to grab natalief as a username but, when that was already taken, I would try natalieford, ford.natalie (where '.' was allowed) and then nataliesford in that order.

I was Fricker before I was Ford and so my initials did not change when I got married!

This is a short entry today. I am not feeling too great (cold/cough and, as I always get with any illness, attendant gastrointestinal upsets) and have made at least one other livejournal related post already (as well as my loudtwitter automatic post)...
