Been a while! Sorry. (207.4)

iJournal, the LiveJournal client for Mac I've been using for years and years, hasn't been updated in a long time. The developer did a small fix a few years ago to make it work despite a Mac OS X update breaking the client, but hasn't had time to make it work for Mavericks or Yosemite, the two latest Mac versions.

So, a few weeks ago, when the IT office that's responsible for our department upgraded my work Mac to Mavericks without warning, iJournal stopped working. I've posted a couple of random things with the web interface, but I don't really enjoy doing so. Is there a big difference? Not really. It's just not what I'm used to.

asLJ seems to work, though, and I'm going to try to get back in the habit of posting regularly. It doesn't let me change the userpic from the default, but I'm sure I can easily change that once an entry is posted.

Watching the Army-Navy game! Are you? I've watched a couple of those on the campus of USMA at West Point, and part of one on the campus of USNA in Annapolis, but mostly I watch in my living room. I know some friends care about the game way more than I do, but I do find it an enjoyable college football game. I also don't really care who wins, though I have a light allegiance to Navy for several reasons, including several friends who served, not to mention my week at USNA for a seminar I was invited to years ago. #GoNavy #BeatArmy

Right now both dogs are curled up on the couch, though Rex keeps wandering off. He's much more restless than Penny in general. He's only with us for another couple of weeks; his person is coming back to the US from Scotland for the holidays, and will be here late this month or early January to collect him.
