Dock at sunset on White Sands Island in the Maldives (under sample backgrounds for Windows Vista). It's one of my favourites.

Quit work on the spot first and maybe buy a house and/or car. ;)

Brought to my attention by [livejournal.com profile] frelling_tralk; the cast and crew of DW messing about to the tune of I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) as David Tennant ended his run as 10. :D

I still remember where I was and roughly the time when I found out like it was yesterday. I was a wee bit late to English class (last one of the day) and I got into the classroom at about 3.05pm (I'm in Belfast, NI, so we are a few hours ahead). I can distinctly recall wondering why the tv on the wall was on & why were the class watching it and a friend came up to me saying that a plane had crashed into the WTC (I thought that it was probably a private plane or something and that it was some accident). Then we all saw the second plane slam into the south tower live and I think someone said something to the equivalent of "there's another one away in..." Shortly after that, we were all sitting with our mouths hanging open as the south tower collapsed on itself; it was like something straight out of Die Hard but we knew that we'd just witnessed hundreds of people die. :(

I visited Ground Zero in February 2007 and as our tour bus was coming up to the stop around the back of the buildings opposite and I caught a glimpse of that big empty space, I got a sudden feeling like I was about to start bawling.

I love what Google have done for what would have been Freddie Mercury's 65th birthday. ♥

Is it possible or is there anyway to have messages in your LJ inbox sent by friends only, ie. that other users cannot contact you via LJ messaging? I only ask as some idiot asshole douchebag (whom I don't know and have no idea how they found my journal since they aren't on any of the same communities as myself) literally just sent me a charming email to which I unfortunately cannot reply and do not want them emailing me again. :|

TIA. :)

No, not really as there are still a scarily large number of men who think it's okay to treat women as nothing more than a piece of meat. There are also a lot of eastern countries that imo need to be dragged into the 21st century and stop treating their women like the scum of the earth. There's no call for misogynism (if such a term exists). And although a lot of women now are freer than they would have been a century ago, why then are a lot of us still being paid less than men in some workplaces and still having to put up with a lot of shit from men? Hmmmm... change that for a start

There's quite a few things I like to do alone but mainly sleep. :)

For those wanting to know more about the recent DDoS attacks, yes, it looks like it was the Russian government trying to shut down the dissidents again.

As I said last time, while it's frustrating not to have access, LJ is a lot more than a social network platform. From the article:

"LiveJournal isn’t just a social network. It’s also a platform for organizing civic action. Dozens of network projects and groups mobilize people to solve specific problems — from defending the rights of political prisoners to saving endangered historic architecture in Moscow."

So while I know many are considering the move over to Dreamwidth and other such sites, supporting LJ is a way we can help support those who use it for more than a writing/roleplaying/social venue.

Also, as a FYI, LJ is giving paid users effected by the outage two weeks of paid time as compensation.
