The thing is LJ seems to be dying. It's sad and I wish it wasn't so but that's the way it is. So I'll keep my account active by occasional posts like this one so I can comment here but otherwise come and see me at my blogs www.imaginemeatclarion.blogspot or http://wa-egoboo.blogspot.com and the KSP Minicon blog at www.kspminicon.blogspot.com (not that I'll be doing much on this one because I've handed running the Minicon over to others).

Come visit soon.

No lengthy posts - just my best wishes for a happy New Year for everyone - except for the idiot phone company that thinks putting an advert on a 'Post an Entry' page that obscures most of the tabs is a good idea. I don't know about you but for me that's a fail. Won't ever consider dealing with that company.
