i fell asleep on my bed at 6:15 or so. woke up about 9:30 or so. i'm cranky that livejournal is going slow.... the thing is, the throughput's higher than ever. in other words, the server's getting more done right now than it ever has before, but divided by the number of people using it, it appears to be slow.|
the problem is all the new users. i'm thinking it'd be fun (and helpful) to just ban all new @aol.com users. they're nothin' but trouble anyway! ;-) or, to be even more elitist, i could also ban all @hotmail.com, and all other free email services. yup yup .... that'd be fun.
there'd probably be a group of people that'd be pissed off, ya think?
after i woke up I went to burger king and got dinner. tired still .... going to go to bed as soon as I finish my stupid physics homework. i skipped physics lab tonight... it was only a makeup one if you did crappy on a previous one.

Remember: AOL and Hotmail'ers are the only ones who click banners. ;-)
no banners on livejournal.
thus, no need for AOLers. ;-)

I thought you put banners on the unpaid accounts (which, as you might expect, are likely owned by AOL and Hotmail'ers)? Oh well.. you SHOULD do banners. Make MONEY.
banners don't make any money .... they just make people go away.
banners were gone on livejournal less than a week or so after they went up... too annoying.
You'd be amazed. Done right, those d*mned banners (and the REALLY annoying pop-up ads) DO make money. Otherwise, they wouldn't exist.
What I meant was that they don't make money in comparison with other methods... like paid accounts.
FreeVote.com is paid for by banner ads, which is how I make my salary, which is how LiveJournal is funded... so yes, I know banner ads can make money.
I use hotmail, but not because I'm a moron, but because I have my work computer, but not my own at home. I like being able to check my email anywhere I go - without having to pay for an ISP.
