Long time no post

I know, I've used that subject before.

Well, I finally got internet access at the ol' homestead, but it's really not full-on internet.
It's a MiFi from Verizon.
It's moderately fast, but it has limits, so I won't be posting any videos or streaming movies.

It does allow me to visit LJ, though. I've missed this place. I've missed keeping up with friends
here. Sadly, many of them have left.

I guess that Facebook thing really has sucked the life out of some of the older blog sites.

I still like longer-format entries, though. Yes, I have a facebook, but it's for short bursts of
information. Long, meandering thoughts still need a place to live, and livejournal is a great place
for that.

Although, I'm sure with facebook taking over all email and text communications in the near
future, it won't be long before they tack on a blog-o-matic feature, and that will be that.

The scary thing about facebook, though, is how darned much they follow you around the web,
spying on everything you're doing, and build your personal information into a dossier on you
that they can use to target you with eerily targeted advertising. It's Orwellian, and I don't
use that word lightly.

In other news, I continue to dream, write, pine -- all of those good and bad things.

And I hope to be here more often again. I'm low on friends, though, so I might have to
dig around for a few new ones. Gotta try to keep this LJ thing going strong!

My facebook is for family and people who want to share funny links, witty puns, news stories and to hear comments to know I'm still alive.

LJ is for people who I trust to hear what I'm *really* thinking and feeling.
