Illuminati

Welcome

You can find more info on my userinfo page - but this is just here to say that I'm very happy to be friended by anyone that wants to read me. I rarely post friends-only, and that only tends to be about things that mention work, so if I don't friend you back you're not actually missing much...

If you do friend me, this would be a good place to leave a comment introducing yourself, and letting me know how you found me!

Additionally, I have lots of awesome friends - if you want to make a few more then take a look at here for Dreamwidth and here for Livejournal, add a few people, and leave comment so people can add you too.

The links posts come from my page at Delicious and are posted to DW and LJ via a web app which I wrote, and you can use yourself here.

A note to Facebook/Twitter users who are reading this journal:
You can easily leave comments/post in polls if you log in using your FB/Twitter account. Just go to the top of the main http://www.livejournal.com/ page and click on the FB/Twitter icon.

If you have your own blog then you can log in with it using OpenID and use that identity to leave comments.

A note on correcting people's grammar in the comments.

The Official Spoiler Policy.
