Laptop #2

Plugged Hilary in to the LAN and ran the Network Configuration Wizard. Didn't work of course - failed to ask the required questions - but it did find Jessica. Was able to copy Netscape, OpenOffice and the LiveJournal .NET Client and a couple of gigabytes of data across. After about an hour of copying, shut Jessica down and tried the Network Configuration Wizard again. This time it created a "Network Bridge" instead of a "Local Area Network". Still wrong but I could finally key in what it needed. Now I am posting from Hilary.

Will someone please remind me (a) why we use LiveJournal instead of simply pasting up our own web pages (b) how in Hell you configure your own page. I created a new "style" but could not get the "use" button to work and therefore could not switch to it. Surely there must be an easier way than mucking around with these styles and layouts (I mean other than the Old Way).

In regards to your question (a), I've been looking into WordPress for my website. I've downloaded it....now just have to install it ;)

It can run on different servers as long as the server supports PHP and MySQL.

As for the LJ styles, it's been about a year since I mucked around with styles. So sorry, can't help. But good luck ;)

Why use livejournal?
Because it's easy to find where my friends are and what they are doing. If I had to visit loads of different web pages, I wouldn't bother.

LJ gives me easy control over how much I read and what I read. The friends filters alone make it worthwhile for me.

I don't bother with fancy configurations. Other people's fancy layouts often look terrible to my browser.
