Just a pre-emptory strike… because the LJ system is so painfully clunky and tedious, I’ve shifted my blog reading to Google Reader.  Please don’t become upset if my friend’s list looks sparse, I assure you I’m still hanging on every typed syllable, just in a system far easier to manage.  However, if you have an uber-secret, triple DNA encoded journal, my uptake might be a bit slower (LJ doesn’t seem to support secure RSS feeds).
