The sad part is, I would pay for an ad-free version of OpenDiary. Unfortunately, their pay service isn't the OpenDiary that I like. And with their agressive efforts to drive off their non-paying customers, they'va already annoyed away completely all but two of the people I read--one of whom switched to the pay service. And it's a pain in the neck to read her diary now. I have to go to the OD+ page, login on a seperate "Free OD" page, do a search for her diary, and then I can read it. I can't even bookmark her diary to circumvent these steps.
I don't expect anyone to jump through such hoops to read me. And I loathe the "you must be one of the privileged few who has an OD or OD+ diary in order to leave notes on OD+." Period. No input or requests from the diarist allowed.
I've ranted down this road too many times before. I will probably hang onto my OD account until my last friend leaves, and then I'll give up.
In other news, I am officially "on break" from running stuff on Sinai for the next week. Whee! I'll still be doing a Rasheeka log sometime next week, just because I like to and it's easy for me, but that's it. I haven't decided what I'll do with the sudden influx of free time I'l have. I could do all sorts of useful things, like cut the mat boards I bought last weekend to frame pictures. Or draw/paint some new pictures. Or write an outline for a book idea I have. Or work on various plotlines for Sinai and Mirari.
I'll probably sit in front of my computer web-browsing every night, then go to bed early, promising myself I'll be more productive tomorrow.
I think I will do some work on the Apagorevo continent, however. I have a bunch of ideas I want to get down on paper, and some others that I ought to revise. I did the basis for a calendar and mailed it off to Greywolf & Tufty, then decided afterwards that I didn't like it. So now I want to go back to my original version (which no one saw but me.) Heh. This is the advantage of deciding things before they show up on camera--it gives me time to realize, "What was I thinking? I don't want to do that!"
I might ramble more, but Lut wants to get out of the house. Bye!
