Until I sort out how to manage this LiveJournal without directly engaging with the site, I'll continue to make brief announcements here. Due to LiveJournal's Byzantine spam suppression policies, I am no longer posting primary content here. There is an existing LiveJournal RSS feed of my WordPress blog under another handle, [info]feedjaylake. wild_irises has also created a Dreamwidth feed called jlake-feed should you wish to follow me there.

If you leave comments on [info]feedjaylake, I will likely not see them, as I do not get notifications. Please feel free to leave comments here, or on my Facebook wall or on my WordPress blog.

For today's blogging, including Link Salad, Moment of Zen, my forthcoming blogging schedule, and an update on the fundraiser to help me afford my NIH trips, see jlake.com/blog.

As stated yesterday, I am done with LiveJournal, due to their Byzantine spam suppression policies making it impossible for me to build Link Salad posts here any more.

For today's blogging, including Link Salad, Moment of Zen, a detailed discussion of the LiveJournal spam suppression issue, and comments on today's visit to NIH, please see my WordPress blog at jlake.com/blog.

Once I am certain of the disposition of this LiveJournal, I will make an appropriate announcement. Meanwhile, if it is useful to you, there is an existing LiveJournal RSS feed of my WordPress blog under another handle, [info]feedjaylake.

Never mind. LiveJournal is giving me the world's most useless error message today:

LiveJournal Error Message

When I try to edit the entry, it then goes into some kind of lockout mode where I have to close the browser tab and start over. When I repost the code from scratch in a new entry, I get the same damned error message.

I've pretty much had it with LiveJournal weirdness. I am going to convert this blog to an RSS feed of my WordPress blog as soon as I can figure out how. In the mean time, you can read today's Link Salad here. I'm not going to try to make any other blog posts to LiveJournal this morning, so feel free to check out my other daily posts at http://www.jlake.com/blog/.

Travel yesterday was irksome but not dire. Both flights were delayed for a combination of weird, trivial and unannounced reasons. Because travel.

Dinner last night with my brother and his new spouse. Today we are laying low.

Monday, we begin two days of appointments at NIH in Bethesda. I find myself a little freaked out at the thought of some of the procedures, which is not particularly rational or typical of me.

Ah, stress.
