Long time no LJ

· bodega

I think my paid membership at LiveJournal may have lapsed, taking away some of the RSS features I was using to stay in touch with my old small friends community. I’d still like to port my LJ entries over to X-POLLEN or into some yet undetermined system like textpattern of ftrain. Need to simplify.

Paid LJ users can add my new blog as a friend

· bodega

markpasc set up a RSS channel at http://livejournal.com/users/xpollen/ that will mirror all my posts to my new blog. Now I just need to add the RSS feed for my friends page (if it exists) to my Radio Userland aggregator and I will continue to have the same circle of friends in my new technological wrapper.
The software shouldn’t matter so much. It shouldn’t be so political. Migrating should be easy. Data wants to be free (to move).

Lost our lease

· bodega

I’m afraid LiveJournal friends, that I’ll be vacating this little corner bodega sometime soon, having relocated the locus of my personal blogging to a MovableType-powered blog called X-POLLEN.
I will try to do a number of things:

  1. Import all my bodega entries into x-pollen (then i may go back and import still breathing and breathing room some day as well).
  2. Try to get this blog or a new one in LJ land to mirror the x-pollen blog or figure out how my friends can add the the RSS feed for x-pollen to their LJ friends lists. I don’t want to lose any friends by doing this—I’m already giving up threaded comments
  3. Make sure there is an easy way to get to x-pollen from this blog for old-time readers who may stop by to visit from time to time.

The move will probably take some time to complete, but I have already begun posting to the new blog, so I can’t promise there will be much more here besides probably news about the move and its progress.
In other xian blog news, I have moved Radio Free Blogistan from http://blogs.salon.com/0001111/ to http://radiofreeblogistan.com/ .
Lots of fun stuff going on in my little microcontent universe. Nanocontent?

veriSign / netsol evil

· bodega

this new two-tiered password scheme of netsol’s, surely it is designed primarily to once again entangle passive Internet domain holders into staying with verisign out of inertia or, short of that, stuck like flypaper to the new authentication scheme until the inevitable renewal deadline passes.
what is the easiest way to get all of my netsol domains transferred en masse to my preferred (or any other) domain-name registration provider?
