This LJ will now be mostly friends only ALMOST ALL posts are now locked.

I don't automatically friend people back who just randomly friend me. I'm a fairly private person and as well as the fandom rambling there's a lot of RL and other stuff here. So if you'd like to friend me and think we have stuff in common/would get along, leave a comment here and say hello please.

Thanks =)

Since LJ has decided to show location details for commenters for anyone with IP logging turned on, I have been through the communities I run to turn this option off.

So, on the privacy tab for each community I selected 'log IP addresses for nobody' - and it is STILL SHOWING THE DETAILS.

Help, anyone?

Is it just me whose LJ profile and viewing is a bit messed up? With the blue LJ header bar staying in place when you scroll down, so it obscures things at the top, and all the comments squished together? I don't like it.

example screencap. )

And is anyone else having problems with any LJ payments at all? It won't let me pay for anything.

I am disabling anonymous commenting on this journal, effective immediately.

If anyone wants to legitimately contact me, they can do so via the information on my profile page.
*blinks* )

And just out of curiosity... and if anyone is interested...

Who comments the most on this journal? )

Have a lovely day all =)

I suddenly remembered my additional userpics expire tomorrow and finally managed to get LJ to accept my card details. If I'd lost my emo Sammy icons, even for just one day, I'd have been pissed. *wonders if there's a LOM icon comm... goes to look for a Gene Hunt icon*

I've started using my very old personal stereo at work to drown out ... well, everything really, and it's amazing how chilled listening to cheesy 80's tunes, mullet rock, Nina Simone & ELO can make you ~ I think I even smiled at The Tosser this morning. He looked quite scared, which made me smile more :)

On the other hand, I seem to be so distracted that I'm working pretty hard and getting a lot done. Which I guess is a good thing. Though I'd rather be spamming with my geeky elf partner.

And on an even more random note, I need more Ianto userpics and I don't like what they did to the Edit Userpics page  :/

So I added a Ianto header made by [profile] nixxie_ and slightly adapted (enlarged) by [profile] _gater_and now I've started messing around with the layout and colours... which I hate doing as I can never make my mind up.

At the moment I've chosen one of the default settings (machine I think) as I don't have the patience to start changing the colours individually, so sorry it's dark but it suited my mood tonight.... actually took me ages just to chose between machine, greys and b/w & red and all of them were practically the same black!  Maybe black is the angsty Ianto mood theme for LJ ;)

LJ is being a little weird for me today ~ I've got email notifications for all comments made to a post I put on [community profile] manndecker last night, but no email notifications for the same post I put on my own LJ.   The only reason I know there were comments is because I saw them there.  Weird.   So is anyone else having this problem or is it just me ~ in which case I guess I need to work out how to sort it out.

So if you could just randomly comment to this post, then I can see if I get email notification or not ~ thanks  :)

Just in case you didn't know already:

Paid members reimbursement

Had a pretty messed up few days which have left me feeling meh, so apologies to those I owe emails and stuff to.   Feel free to throw happy thoughts my way.  Hopefully a few will smack me  :)
One thing which did make me smile this morning (which really shouldn't have) is a printout on my desk headed "Werder shocked by Dortmund" (obviously left by Mark, the guy who invited me to the football on Saturday) ~ silly boy seems to have forgotten that as I do the daily cover, it's me who decides what everyone does every day ... guess he's going to be doing stuff he hates for the next .... week?

LiveJournal is being an ass again today as I'm not getting email notification of any comments posted or replies to comments I've made.  Only realised when I got an email from someone, then checked my LJ to see that comments had actually been posted today.

I emailed them and told them, but looks like a lot of other people are telling them the same thing, so I guess I've just got to wait till they sort it out  :/

Have spent a lot of today gathering stuff together for my footie vids, but I'm not sure if my eyes can take much more so may have to take a break now   :)

I've had a very long day.  Up since just before 5am but didn't need to be, got very vocal in my team meeting (which is rare) and just stopped short of saying I quit (rarer still) and then went out with clients for the rest of the day which was just what I needed.  The details are boring, just know it all sucked except the bit with the clients, which was great.

I'm amused how many comments I got as to why no-one gave my FB on my vid, compared to how many comments I didn't get for the actual vid!  But thanks so much to all of you who took the time ~ and I'm actually a little surprised how few of my flist watch Supernatural.

This is the second night in a row that LJ has been a pain in the ass for me ~ "database unavailable" ~ meh.

 I've been awake since about 5.30am with a banging headache, and am due to go play tennis with Ella in about 20 minutes.  I think I will go anyway, in the hope that the running around and fresh air will help  :)  The Boy won't be up for at least an hour so I should be home in time for breakfast  ;)

Slightly stressful day yesterday ~ hence the headache, I think.  Got a little bit lost in the forest yesterday afternoon whilst out with clients ~ though I blame Jane, who always says she knows where she is going and this isn't the first time she's been lost.  We weren't lost for long, but you do have time constraints when out with clients as you have to be back by a certain time, plus you have to take into account the needs of the people with you and one of these chaps had high support needs/challenging behaviour, so we really didn't want to be lost for long.  When we got back, one of the clients in our team had taken ill and was being taken to hospital.  The Tosser (this is just todays name for him, will probably change) had not even informed any of the staff in our team (who know this client very well) that anything was wrong with her.  Jane and I decided that I was going to the hospital with her, which didn't go down well with The Tosser, who insisted he had found someone to go with her and I didn't need to go.  I ignored him and went anyway.  She was fine by time we got to the hospital, thankfully  :)   Then The Boy was an hour and a half late home from college which freaked me out a little and meant I had to sit outside his house waiting for him for over an hour.  So yeah, one of those days  :)

I've decided I now don't much like the colours of my new layout and will be changing them again this weekend ~ and I've still not sorted out the two banners on the userinfo page, but at least I'm now sure which one I prefer  ;)  Plus I cut about 20 userpics this morning and am on the lookout for pretty new ones  :)
If you're wondering why there are two "partly friends only" banners on my userinfo page (if you even noticed) it's because I can't decide between the two ~ pedantic as I am!

I like the first one because that was the first one [profile] anteka made for me and it's gorgeous  :)

Then .... I got all pedantic again and said maybe it would look better with a border, plus the only thing I didn't like about the original one was how big it was, and it pushed the userpics over to the side, so could I have it a little smaller.  Which she did (hugs [profile] anteka) .... but now I think it looks better without a border, plus I liked that you could see more of the picture in the first one.  ARGH!  Help me dcide please?

What do you think?
OK, time for me to look stupid (again!)  In order for me to keep THIS POST at the top of my journal I need to give it a future date, right?  Which, btw, I did, then things started going screwy  :/   Then if I do that, any future posts I make I have to click the backdate button when posting, yes?  Plus my calender then goes screwy (last time I dated the entry 2010 so that's what my calender shows) ~ any way round this, cos I'm sure I've seen it OK on other people's journals who've done this?  Is this all OK, or am I doing something wrong or missing something out?  For those of you that have done this, is this how you did it?

Also, anyone seen a SPN  "partly friends only" banner I could use yet?

I couldn't get onto LJ for hours today ~ kept getting an HTTP Error 403 - Forbidden page  :/   I tried everything suggested to me and nothing worked, but it eventually resolved itself, though I've no idea how or why ~ has anyone else had this problem before?

And I know it seems like all I've done today is thank people, but seriously, thanks to [profile] ms_3m[profile] delgaserasca and [personal profile] colej55 for stopping me from freaking out, suggesting stuff to try and contacting LJ for me ~ much appreciated, as always  :)  If anyone knows what it was I'd like to know  ;)

Hmmm .... I want a mostly friends only banner .... a SPN one woould be nice .... anyone seen one?
