Binary

(no subject)

Those of you who have started using this new tags thing LJ has, what is the advantage of this over memories? Is it pretty much the same thing? I've just recently started going back through my entries to put stuff in memories and so now I am wondering if i should do tags instead, or should I do both?

Also, in a bit of weirdness, I clicked on a Where Am I link and instead of Madcow I am now on the Roastbeef cluster. I'm guessing it is because of my account's status change. but I find it kind of disturbing to go from Madcow to Roastbeef, because you shouldn't turn mad cows into food! And also, I'm now curious to know if all their clusters have bovine names...

*edit* So, my curiousity got the better of me & I started trying to research LiveJournal cluster names. Apparently everyone switching clusters is a normal thing as they upgrade and add new equipment. When they get new equipment they transfer everyone off one of the older machines. Also, the clusters are all actually two machines, so madcow consists of the server Mad and the server Cow. They originally started with South Park names but for reasons unknown to me (i.e. I didn't find it in my google search) they switched to meat. They used to have Cartman, Kenny, Santa, etc. then for a brief while it was colors-blue, green, indigo, etc. So now it's meat-madcow, roastbeef, tenderloin, filetmignon, soybean (?meat for the vegetarians?), porkchop, etc. Not that this really means anything, I just found it interesting.

Alright, I'm considering using tags now instead of memories. Either way I have 3 years of posts to go through because I'd never gotten around to putting anything in memories. You can't use tags for marking other people's post like you can with memories though, can you? Also, iJournal allows a much longer subject line than the LJ interface so if I go into their edit page to add the tags, a lot of times I'll end up losing half my subject if I'm using a relatively long tv/movie quote. Ugh. I'm undecided on what to do. Also, iJournal theoretically supports tags now so I can tag right as I'm entering, but I downloaded what I thought was the latest version and there's no tags spot. If I can't tag as I'm entering I might as well stick with memories since I've gotten about a year back on those... *sigh* I'm just undecided girl here...

I haven't changed my journal layout for quite a while, so I think it is time! So, if you look at it in the near future & the colors suck or it just looks crappy... deal with it! It's a work in progress!
