If you wish to read beyond this point, you must do two things.

1. Have a DreamWidth user account. If you don't have one, you can either create one for as little as US$3, or find an existing user who would be willing to give you an invitation code. I only have a limited number of these codes, and reserve them for distribution to friends and family members.

2. Leave a comment on this entry requesting to be added to my Access List, which will then unlock the entries for you to see. I reserve the right to not honor your request, regardless of whether or not I have a reason to do so.

Power is back on at the apartment and in the office.

Fred and I are going to the store today to replace the entire contents of our refrigerator and freezer. After that will be a thorough house cleaning, and then I think things will finally be back to normal.

I can't say it enough; thanks to everyone who's sent good wishes and thoughts our way. We really appreciate it.

After this entry, this LJ will revert back to its previous Friends-Only status. If you wish to read beyond this point, please comment here or on the first post on http://driley1.livejournal.com to be added.

Cincinnati has been hit with a very nasty wind storm which has caused widespread power outages. I may be without power for the rest of this week. This journal will become public during this time to allow everyone, including non-friends to view status updates from me via phone post. The journal will return to Friends Only status once my power and internet service has been restored.


AIM stuff

Have decided to go with a friends-only approach to AIM after getting one too many spambots. The one that broke the camel's back--


Er. O.o; No thanks, already have one.

Anyway, the point of this post is that there are some of you that I don't have your names on my list, so either leave them in a comment here or email them to me.

So, tags.

So, tags. A very nifty idea which, if integrated with friend groups, could be really awesome.

(and this is a gratuitous tag-test post).

Well, welcome back to the land of the living, Dusty. I took some sinus medicine which succeeded in clearing out the ick, but laid me out COLD for a few hours. @.@

Well, so much for cleaning the room... Ah well..

Speaking of cleaning - Dear roommates: Please clean dishes before they start smelling like fish and mutating, kthx. XP

Those of you also on Xanga: I'm going to try mirroring for all my friends over there. There's more over there than previously thought.

DustinRiley.com has been updated.

Revised bio page, re-constructed Music page and added Music of the Month for May/June combined.

If you do that language meme, you might want to put it behind a cut, or double check the HTML you copy from the site, for the simple reason is that it's breaking not only my friends page, but several other journals I read, as well. ^_^;;;;

Problem with my journal is fixed, as I changed the layout. It turns out that previous sickly green layout doesn't look good at all in Safart Safari. >_< (typo left in because it's teh funi)

Got a notice in the mail that my check card might possibly be being use fraudulently. O.o;;; WTF? So switching to PNC ASAP.

Updated DustinRiley.com again, this time adding a Biography and Contact page.

Watched the latest sbemail. Comic gold right there, let me tell you.

Music page updated with April's Music of the Month. Check it out at DustinRiley.com.

brief PSA

I did some very small spring flist cleaning. 10 journals were cut, for myriad reasons. Think of it more as pruning dead branches than attacking a hedge sculpture while wearing a hockey mask, weilding a chainsaw and laughing maniacally. More journals may or may not be cut later. If you have concerns regarding as to why you were/were not cut, please reply here or send me an email at driley1@livejournal.com.

I want to also make clear that not in a very long time would I ever think of any of you exploiting things that are not meant to be exploited. The possibilities granted by this new site are just simply too significant to NOT say anything about it. I think I'm to the point where even if I do prune my flist, it's usually 5 people or less out of more than 150. Because you're all so awesome, I can't bear to part with you.

You all have brought some great points to my attention -- circumventing friends-only security is nowhere near a new concept; Frienditto just makes it too easy to be comfortable with. Also, remember that LJ has merged with SixApart, meaning there are real lawyers who can lay a very good legal smackdown should the need arise.

But for the meantime, in this time of uncertainty, please excuse my paranoia.

There's a site out there called Frienditto (and no, I'm not linking to it). It's undermining the security of LJ.

Quoth [livejournal.com profile] bzarcher, with permission:

It's a service that's being billed as a way to download any entry that you might have access to on livejournal. You give them your account info and the url of any user's entry, and it goes, gets the content, strips headers, and puts it on a page for you. And if it's friends only or private, the only way to make the entry friends-only in Frienditto is if you pay for it.

(Including friends-only or filtered entries. See why I'm more than a little worried about this? In fact, in a very roundabout sense, it reeks of FUCKING BLACKMAIL.)

Not to mention the webmaster sounds like he's about fifteen years old, and says (and I quote the site): "... please do not bother me with frivolous lawsuit banter."

Let me say this right here and right now:

  1. Per Creative Commons license, any information in public entries is free to be redistrubted, given that the information remains intact, and my name is mentioned as the source of the material.
  2. Any information in Friends-Only or Filtered entries is completely copyrighted to me. ALL rights reserved, including the right to redistribute the information without my written/expressed consent.
  3. If ANY of you are members of Frienditto, let me know now so that I can adjust my filters accordingly. If you don't and I find that you've taken any of my f-locked posts from any journal I own and posted them on that site, I'm treating it as if you've lied to me (well, mainly because you have; I gave the opportunity for you to come clean and you didn't, therefore, your fault.) -- I lose all trust in you, not to mention you can be damn sure (a) I'm not on speaking terms with you from that point on and (b) If anyone asks me about you, they'll soon find out about how you undermined my trust. This applies across the board to every single person/account on my friends list, no matter how close I am to you, how long I've known you, etc.

If that doesn't make it 100% crystal clear, I URGE you to tell me now so I can clarify this.
