LiveJournal support group meeting

Marko: (Nervously walks up to the front of the group) Uh, my name is marko_the_rat.
Attendees: (chorus) Hi, Marko the, er, rat?
Marko: And I... have a problem.
Attendees: (Supportive applause)
Convener: Go on...
Marko: Yes, I'm addicted! The first thing I do when I wake up is get a fix. When I get home from work, the first I do is get another fix.
Attendees: (Nod knowingly)
Marko: Even if I wake up in the middle of the night, I have to go on to see if there have been any updates.
Attendees: (Murmur of confusion)
Marko: I just can't keep myself away from LiveJournal!
Convener: This Alcoholics Anonymous. I think you want the LiveJournal support group. They're down the hallway.
Marko: Oh. Sorry. (Scurries out the door)

Yep, it's official. I'm hooked, and I'm going to have to ween myself off a little just so I can get to work in a more timely manner. This will mean fewer comments from me, but I think you'll all get along without me. :P

Hey you have a PDA right, do you have Avantgo installed? I recently put a Livejournal Avantgo Client on my pocket pc, so now I can write entries from anywhere, then when I put it back in the cradle, it'll send them.. woohooo EVEN MORE JOURNAL ENTRIES MUHAHAHAHAHAHA.

My PDA runs Linux. No disrespect, but I'm not so far gone that I need something like Avantgo. Besides, I'm quite capable of writing LJ posts in a text editor and then putting it up myself. I guess Avantgo would have some benefits, but I'll make do without. There are lots of other cool stuff I can do with unix that I wouldn't be able to do with WinCE or PalmOS.

no worries marko, i was kidding. but you can get it for other os systems. my pocket pc runs both win mobile and palm os via software, its available for both :D Only reason i don't have unix on there is because im a complete airhead and don't know anything about it....other than its efficient :D

Also, it's a question of effective time management. Sure, with Avantgo I could post replies (albeit jerkily) while riding to work on the bus. But that's my reading time. When I can escape into other worlds, other realities. I won't let that be taken from me.
