LJ is now on Russian Soil

December 30th, 2016 (10:12 am)


If you are reading this from LiveJournal -- or if you have friends who are still on LJ, this is the time to pack your bags and seek a better place for yourself.

Briefly, SUP. the Russian group that owns LJ, has moved the physical servers that LJ information is on to Russia. Nobody who writes on LJ is now covered by the First Amendment, or any other US law governing freedom of expression. Your information -- all of it -- is under the direct supervision of the Russian government.

Info from Siderea here and here.

Why does this matter to us here?

Think about it. Putin hacked the elections; his interference contributed strongly to giving us Drumph. Now he's got access to private information on private citizens across the country, their interests, their views, their families. Do you really want that?

I closed my account last week; it seemed the time to do it. I suggest you do the same, delete your comments, delete everything. You are welcome to come to Dreamwidth, which is similar to work with, or to go to WordPress or any other journaling or blogging resource. Just don't stay where you are -- for all our sakes.

(Think of the kind of data scraping and analysis that happens on Facebook for the sake of ads. Now think of it in LJ, done by Russia for political means.)

Reading Sword Art Online: Progressive

Sword Art Online, for those who haven't heard of it, is a novel/anime/manga series in which the players are trapped in a videogame where if your character dies, you die in real life and they have to win the game to escape. The original story was told in one novel, which I always felt was a bit too short....

SAO :Progressive is a alternate take on the story, retelling it in expanded form and filling in gaps in the original story. The series focuses on Kirito, a beta tester for the game and determined to survive and level up, and Asuna, a relative 'noob' but possessed of great determination and natural talent.

What I think SAO Progressive is very good at is being s nice blend of serious and comedy. YES there's the life and death crisis, but the books manage a lot of humor. Poor Kirito is HORRIBLY bad at figuring out women in general, which makes for a lot of comedy in his interactions with Asuna and the information broker Argo.

Hero series by Jonathan Wood

October 1st, 2016 (05:39 am)

current mood: annoyed

Finished the first three books of this series. Liked book one, book two was ok but had plot holes and characters clutching the idiot ball, and book three was meh.

Book two, Yesterday's Hero, is probably the book that annoyed my the most. The author wanted to get his lead character someplace, and he COULD have done it via writing & plot. Instead he has the rest of the cast (Literally. EVERY OTHER MAIN CHARACTER.) suddenly clutch the Idiot Ball and disbelieve him and act OOC from the first book. Not gonna spoil it if you wanna read, but WOW is it weird.

So basically, they are a library read, don't buy 'em, pretty much.
