You're right... That's a good next step.

I don't think you can do that anymore.

What accounting fraud?
We are totally in line in the accounting area. That is why I am doing it and not Brad.
Sell LJ like you did FreeVote. Maybe it'll become bastardized. Maybe it'll become better. Who knows.
But ... you're just a man. You can't do everything. You're gonna get so many E-Mail comments from this post (unless you disabled them... heh, as soon as I saw that option, I thought of you).
Sell LJ. Make a bit of money. Then work on your new project. Development is what you love, not administration. So, develop. Once developed, move on. Fresh soil to plant seed. Or something.
We all love you dearly. You know that.
although I hate saying "sell LJ" (if the new owners fuck this site up like they did freevote... ugh... i'd be... upset)...
but he's right.
and we do love you.
Heh. But you're right, FreeVote is fucked. Mainly because it makes no money because there are no advertisements, and the cost of colo and a sysadmin exceeds it's intake.
dude... i don't want him to sell LJ... I just want brad to be happy...
I hate popups and popbehinds...
I try to ignore them (with Adsubtract and a PopUpStopper).. But, they *still* annoy me.. Just knowing that one of them *TRIED* to open up on my computer.. maybe I'm hypersensitive, and just can't stand any forms of advertisements anymore..
I have the solution to your deadlocking problem, and its only one word "Mutex"

I think that starting another project will just give you another responsibility that'll get to 80% and then be filled with people bugging you.

Or... you could stop crying like a little girl, work on livejournal, keep revenue coming in, and avoid giving your house back to the bank ;-p
damn you bitch a lot.
I'll help you interview people... you can ask all your technical questions and I'll find out if they are stupid enough to think batman would win in a fight against superman ;-)... It will be fun.
Batman would smack Superman so hard he'd land on the pages of Marvel.
Most of the time there are no easy answers in life, but you knew that :)
Btw. Aren't people mostly bugging you about LJ because you are the only one deciding what gets changed and what doesn't?
There must be a way to split up that responsability and relieve you of all this pressure.
I guess this would also mean you wouldn't be able to aprove and 'know' about all changes as they happen, but that wouldn't be necessary since there'd be a team of 'Bradmins' instead of one.
Hope you'll be able to find a satisfactory answer.
You should start your new program completely anonymously.
Either that, or get someone else to act like it's theirs and then just work "for them" but secretly mastermind it... hehe.
In a word, since I know you like it short and sweet, delegate. It works best that way.
Ok, here's the solution to all your problems... listen up. Get a bunch of newly born monkeys (squirrels would be easier to get, but they aren't as good at typing), train them to program and maintain LJ. Just put them in the spare bedroom, throw some bananas in there periodically, maybe train one of the monkeys as a house cleaner instead of a program and your set. I don't see any flaws in that plan... oh yeah, and hot chicks too... yeah, that'd be sweet...
