[loudtwitter] Microblogging

Sometimes this is the only blogging I manage to do. Feel free to skip it as is your choice and prerogative but then you may not find out about what I did yesterday and/or how I was feeling (health, mood, etc.) as well as any links I have made a note of for my own and your interest and the odd haiku that I post there …

Warning! Many incomming posts!

I am about to set ljmigrate off copying my posts from nsf_writing to natf. I have no idea if it will leave the dates and times as they are over there or add them all to today/now and so flood your friends pages, RS or atom feeds. I hope it is the former and not the latter! I also have no idea whether it will preserve the security levels of posts - I have at least one private post that I hope will remain private! It is a pity that the documentation for ljmigrate is so minimal...

12:20 Hmmmm - change of plan. I have decided to test this out using one of my empty nameholder free LJ accounts first. That way I will at least know whether it backdates the posts or not!

12:59 Good news! It does preserve the date and time of the original entry when it has copied them!

Bad news, it does not copy f-locked posts, but that might be because the journal I am copying them to is not on the FL of the journal I am copying them from. More testing needed!

Ah - oops - it did copy them but this account was not in the destination account's FL! ;-p

All I need to do now is to remove them from the dummy LJ and copy them to this one.

By the way, I am almost definitely (99% likelihood) going to move all of my secondary LJs' content into this one because this one is a permanent account. I will use tags and maybe filters (if I need to but most likely not) including the tags that are the same as the journal name that they came from (e.g. "nsf_writing"). I know at least one of you did not want me to copy stuff into this account (I am not too sure why) but this is what I have decided to do. I am confused, however, why someone thought that I should not add a tip/donate button to my photo posts - are they not good enough? I am going to do it anyway. My LJ, my prerogative! I thank you all for your help in brainstorming my decisions but am going to close the poll now, once I work out how to!

P.S. Edited to add: This is the thread where I find a bug in ljmigrate and discuss it with the developer. Trust me (the medically retired but still able to do a bit pedantic software and website functionality and usability tester/QA from HECK!!!!) to be able to break something without trying too hard! Anytime you need something tested... ;-p This means that I will not be able to finish the migration until the bug is fixed.

I would really like to do this

Just Walk and Just Bike charity fundraising events - sponsored walk, sponsored cycle ride. UK
Saturday 9th May

One of the charities is the MSRC (MS Resource Centre) whose email informed me about this event, and the other two main UK MS charities are also listed - the Multiple Sclerosis Trust and the MS Society. I would really like to do this (the 10K).

So, does anyone want to walk 10K with me?
