Greetings and Salutations!

I just noticed a bunch of people have added me as LJ friends in the who-knows-how-long timeframe. I don't know why LJ doesn't inform me of that event. (Ok, the new "My LJ" page might have some indicator, but I never use it) I don't have time to actively poll my user profile page (or the Edit Friends page). I should write a script to do it nightly or something.

I mention this mostly in case any of you were curious (perturbed?) as to why I hadn't reciprocated.

In any case, greetings. Very, very few of my posts are filtered (except the Motivate filter, something I intend to resuscitate after last night (more later)) and fewer of those are really of interest to anyone but me. Trust me.)

"Brought to you here on the Sub-Etha waveband, broadcasting around the galaxy, around the clock. And we'll be saying a big 'hello' to all intelligent life-forms everywhere. And to everyone else out there, the secret is to bang the rocks together, guys."

(The astute among you will point out that I just tweaked one of my own major pet-peeves: public posts directed at one reader (or a very small subset of the readership). Your complaint has been noted.)
