and while I'm on the subject, my 2¢ on the "who's your livejournal ancestor" meme:
I'm self-made. I'd been keeping my own journal (which was mostly show reviews) for some time on my web page, by hand... was glancing through freshmeat to see what was new, and discovered loserjabber 0.1. and that's how I became livejournal user #1142.
I've been saying (for 4 years) that I was going to backdate all those old manual entries into lj, but have never gotten around to it. since we're all digging up ancient history, maybe I'll see if I can put my fingers on them.
