Disimprovement engineering  
Livejournal is one of the many computerized operations in which the scariest word is "upgrade." There appears to have been a new one, and I am seeing complaints. Perhaps because I never went along with the Friends Page upyoursgrade, the only problem I have noticed is that lj no longer recognizes its own lj-user symbol if I post directly to it, so I am now originating my birthday posts on Dreamwidth, the way I do all my others. As always, when lj malfunctions, I blame unprotected contact with Facebook.

Are there any that aren't? As a general rule, for any program, I use the oldest version that still works.

I had no difficulty with the lj-user tag when I posted a couple of days ago.

Yeah, where are the emulators?

Oh me TOO.

But with all the interesting people of the later generation on it too. And all text.

Likewise, I'm sure.

Perhaps I am mellowing with age, but I would accept pictures if they didn't move or make sounds.
