Latest PSA wherein LJ messes with something else:

Livejournal Scrapbook is going away. Your 10GB of Paid Member space is now 2GB. If you care, there is an explanation in Russian on the Russian news page. There's also a user-submitted translation.

+ You will no longer have access to your Scrapbook once this goes live.
+ Your images will redirect, but the URL will be different.
+ Unable to tell what will happen to any photos you have that put you over the 2GB limit.
+ Back up your Scrapbook just in case.
+ If you want your photos transferred over now instead of waiting, let them know here.

There are some examples of navagation strip issues here. It seems some LJs are affected and some aren't (yet).

The War Against Women Is Never Over

When they marched for the women's right to vote 100 years ago, they were imprisoned, put into strait-jackets and force fed until they vomited blood. They fought for your right to own property, to have access to birth control and your right to an education. This video is fun and clever and hits on some hard truths. And it makes you ask yourself...what I am willing to do today to fight back and protect our rights as women and citizens?

Comment box issue

Just to put everyone's mind at rest; the comment box on my journal does still work.  The image that was used behind it has been taken down recently.  I am planning on fixing it as soon as possible and I'm sorry for any inconvenience the ugly 'tinypic default logo' background causes!

A-Z challenge

April Blogging - From A - Z

So after seeing this posted over at stargazer60 I've decided to enter myself into this challenge myself. I don't often try anything like this on here but I thought I might try this. To be honest I don't leave a very interesting life but most of the time I have something that I want to write about but never found a way to write it down. Maybe this will motivate me to do that.

So yeah, anyway, the challenge stands that everyday through out April I post about something to do with the corresponding letter to the alphabet. Everyday except the sundays that is. We'll see just how far I get.

Wish me luck!

Google Privacy Issues: Web History

If you are going to do this, you need to do it before March 1st. It has been said that users will not be able to do anything about this after that date.

With reference to Google's policy changes and how everything you do with your Google account will be tied together into their super-cauldron of information, you will probably want to clear your Google Web History out - if you turned that feature on - before month's end. After that, you won't be able to clear it, and everything you search for will be connected with your account.

To check settings and/or clear out your Web History:

1. Go to Google. If you aren't signed in already, do so.
2. In the top right-hand corner you'll find your email address or name, perhaps an icon if you have a Plus account, and a little downward facing arrow. Click on the arrow and a menu will pop up.
3. Click to 'Account Settings'. This will take you to a page called 'Accounts'. (If you have a Plus account, you might go via a Plus sign-in page.)
4. Scroll down to a section called 'Services'. Here you'll find an option called 'View, enable, or disable web history', which has a link next to it. Click on the link.
5. If you never turned web history on, you'll get a page asking if you want to turn this service on. Just click 'No Thanks' and all is good. If you did turn it on, you should have a list of your searches. At the top there is a button that says 'Remove All History'. Click this and follow the instructions which will remove all items from your Web History and pause the feature so nothing else will be added in future.

Also, you can completely remove Web History as a service from your account by clicking THIS LINK, checking the tick-box and confirming you want to remove Web History. To be safe, it is probably best to do the steps above first to remove any history that might have already been collected.

That one word thing

Taken from corpsebride05

I'm running a test to see who's reading my posts. So, if you read this, leave me a one-word comment about your day that starts with the third letter of your LJ USERNAME. Only one word please. Then repost so I can leave a word for you. Don't just post a word and not copy - that's not as much fun!
