Mon, 12:45: Trying to sign up for @BT_uk's Call Protect service; but apparently I'm unable to change my plan features online. Something broken at BT?

 After a little experimentation and some annoyance with an over-zealous password manager, I now have cross-posting between LJ and DW set up. Comment at either, I have all comments set to arrive via email...

Crossposted from Dreamwidth. There are (image) comments there. Comment either site, I'll read them anyway.



DW/LJ

Thu, 05 Jan 2017 19:11:25 GMT

I'm keeping my LJ account alive for now: it's a permanent account I've had since 2002 or so, so it's costing them money...

But I'm also set up on DW, and will be crossposting between the two. Feel free to friend me on either. As always, I'm sbisson wherever I can be...
