Why is Livejournal trying to become a second-rate Facebook?

Games? Really? If I wanted to use Facebook, I'd be using Facebook. If I wanted to visit armorgames or handdrawngames or any of the 8 gazillion other variants of that on the web, I know where they are.

It occurs to me that when other people split their blogs I tend to stop following both forks... and I've split my blog. The open source hobbyist stuff stays back at, the work stuff here, and any other topics sort of wandering between the two. Not exactly ideal.

The advantage of my notes.html file is it's really easy for me to update, so I do so. It's an html file I edit with vi. Downside: no comments (people just email me), and I started sticking span tags in it _years_ ago but haven't done anything with them yet so it's not really good at fielding multiple topics. One big post per day.

I was pondering moving more stuff here and using tags to distinguish it, but people have been predicting Livejournal Going Away for years now and backing it up is a serious pain. (I'm aware of three solutions, all of which are way too many steps for me to have actually bothered yet, let alone doing it regularly.) So committing more to livejournal... unlikely.

Fade's talked about moving her journal to dreamhost or some such. How do I really know this would be an improvement?

(Yeah, still sick. Not entirely coherent just now. Fade says this is a flu, not a cold. Wheee.)
