Dipping my toe into moving

This is my new home away from home, so to speak.

Like subgeek, I don't know if I'll move there permanently, but I just might.

In particular I like the fact I can play with the design. :-)

And I went ahead and created a home for everyone else.

The beachhead has been established. You have your orders.

I just went to start inviting the random people who have mentioned this so far (as nizo505; my nick has been snarfed already dambit), but having to pick between "Friend" and "Online Buddy" just stressed me out. Besides, "Worthy Adversary" might be more appropriate in some cases :-)

Yeah, and where's "Fuck Buddy" under relationship? Because that's what most of my MySpace contacts are and it'll import MySpace contacts.

As with any classification system, there are bound to be omissions here and there, or places someone or other would have drawn the line differently.

Use “life partner.”

Re:Hmm (1)

TechnoLust (528463) | more than 7 years ago | (#17915964)

That would imply that she's the ONLY fuck buddy. I'll just put Friend, and the With Benefits part will be in my head.

Re:Hmm (1)

BandwidthHog (257320) | more than 7 years ago | (#17916200)

Not in the slightest. I see nothing to indicate that one could not have seventy three concurrent life partners.

(well, nothing other than the obvious, of course.)

I hadn’t looked into that yet, but good. The engine seems decent, but the interface, gah, it makes the typographer in me want to scoop my eyes out with a scale miniature of Frederic Goudy’s headstone.

Can't make it that pretty. Plus, I'm not original. I'll make an account because you and Sam insist....

Ethel... Now really, I'm currently working on a project called "Escaepe" and I made exactly that icon for it during the holidays because I was bored. (Okay, differs slightly, but it's the same thing. Is it even international? Do our friends over the pond understand?)

I'm sure people can figure it out. :-)

Certainly those who've been in continental Europe will recognize it and know what it means.

Cheers,

Ethelred

I like it here. :-)

stoolpigeon (454276) | more than 7 years ago | (#17912416)

i made an i.d. over there - so i could have stoolpigeon if this thing gathers enough steam - but i can't lie, i'm hoping things stay put here. i'm not big on change and i think there is a lot of good about slashdot still -- but i'm gonna just hunker down and see what happens.

That interface just sucks.

I'd much rather have a nice scoop site.

Perhaps we can invade kuro5hin, doesn't seem like anyone uses that site anymore ;-)

In any case I'm all for the idea, but lets pick a better interface.

For that matter if someone will donate a place to host it we can run pretty much anything we want.

you just directly associated yourself with me.

How the hell does one join http://circularrefuge.multiply.com/ [multiply.com]

Re:Ummmm (1)

Ethelred Unraed (32954) | more than 7 years ago | (#17918328)

I set it up invitation-only, to stop party-crashers like we had when we tried to go to Orkut. However, I set it up so any member can invite people.

So beg. Crawl. Plead. ;-)

Cheers,

Ethelred

On moving (1)

Alioth (221270) | more than 7 years ago | (#17946956)

Hm. I've contemplated moving (mainly thinking of LiveJournal) on several occasions. Mainly LJ because of the user groups features - I'm sure not everyone really wants to read TMI about my fetishes. But I just can't be bothered really, Slashdot works for me, and many of my journal entries are technical in nature so I'm guessing this is the right audience.

Although I do need to write a script to mirror my [Z80] entries on my project web page.

So let me get this straight... (1)

MonTemplar (174120) | more than 7 years ago | (#18005270)

It's a social networking site, except you're not stuck with crap layout, and you can choose who to associate with?

Hmm...

Trouble is, I'm on about a half-dozen sites already (more if you include the ones I don't actually use) - Slashdot, dA, LJ (lurking), Digg, StumbleUpon and MySpace (yes, really!) Do I really need to have another one? As it is, I'm now using Thunderbird to pull in the RSS feeds from all the friends I have on the above sites, so I'm still fairly in-touch with what's going on... just rarely have the time to comment. *shrug*

You're going to have to sell this one to me a bit harder, Eth!
