What happened to [Bad username: precious stones]?

Oh joy, another place of brilliant writing that will disappear in my bookmarks and never be seen again. :(

Wonder if it'd be possible to make an lj-feed, like merry_smutmas did with smutmas_ij, hosting the fics on IJ to avoid LJ rules but giving people on LJ reminders and links via the feed. Because that'd be awesome. :)

jpegasus says there's a new home on IJ here.

So maybe not all hope is lost?

It's very possible to make an LJ feed of an IJ journal, but the problem that I've found in this whole crossover business is the friendslocking. Flists basically work as RSS feed aggregators, and thus the journal would be an rss feed...which would not pick up the flocked entries from the Bijou.

Simplest way is still to get an IJ account and check it periodically for updates. It's an imperfect system, but lacking an official mailing/update list, it's probably the easiest.

Aw. :(

Yeah, see, I'll probably get an ij account, bookmark it somewhere and swear to check it now and then, really, and then *foof* bookmark disappears in a folder somewhere and I forget the whole thing for a year or two. I mean, I have a bookmark for how far I've come in shoebox_project somewhere. I made it before I started my bachelor's degree. I have a degree and a job now, still haven't dug up that bookmark and continued reading, even if I loved it. I just never remember it when I actually want stuff to read.

I sympathize. The same thing kind of happens to me, though the advent of RSS feeds helps a lot for a bunch of things...unfortunately, not for flocked journals, though. o.o; For where RSS feeds don't work, I've found the bookmarks toolbar in Firefox to be really helpful. I dump a bunch of links that I want to check every so often into a folder, and then set up a routine: every Sunday while I eat breakfast, or every Saturday evening or something, hit "open all in tabs" from that folder, and see if anything's new. Since there's a bunch of things in there, it's more likely that SOMETHING will have updated and I won't feel like the exercise was in vain. ;P

Also, one thing RSSish you MIGHT want to try: http://www.michaelhanscom.com/eclecticism/2004/07/08/reading-protected-livejournal-entries-via-rss
I wasn't able to get this to work, nor could a few other folks, but a few people say that it DID work, so it might depend on browser/RSS reader. I'd only use this method in a private RSS reader, though, since it involves putting your password and username in the feed name. Good luck.

If you're using firefox, there's a very nice extension that usually works: http://ljlogin.e-space.gweep.net/ It sticks a little autologin to the bottom of the right hand screen and works for LJ and IJ and a few other *Js. It's very nice when one has multiple accounts, as well. Friendslists are just a clicky away.

I'll take a look at it, thanks! :D
