I have staked a dreamwidth claim. I have not yet decided which site to use as the GHQ yet. That place can cross-post to this one; however, my standard posting software (XJournal) is home-cooked to work with LJ, and so would require code-changes and re-compile to work with DW (I've briefly tested Ecto with DW, and it has exactly the same Atom hiccups as it has with LJ: yay).

The "make a better XJournal" project might be worth considering. In the short term, it strikes me that it would be fairly trivial to make an XDream app that was basically an XJournal clone but that worked with DW as the service end-point. However, it's likely that in reality there are niggly details that differ between the site's posting APIs (for example; directing the "cross post this post" option?) that would render it a slightly-more-than-trivial exercise.

Also, ideally, it would be nice to have one app that managed accounts on both end-points. That, however, would likely involve some serious coding, and I'm not sure I'm up to that. It would almost certainly involve UI and probably workflow changes to the application.

Almost certainly, I'll stay here, and just keep the DW account warm to preserve it as a bolt-hole. But you never know; in my copious free time, I could try to cook up an XDream client and see how far I get. (Or perhaps there's some better qualified XJournal user out there who's already working on this issue.)

Spring is sprung, the grass is rizz, and so it's time for the annual revisit to the friends list.

Please note that I don't particularly object to LJ folks friending me, for whatever reason they might have (although I ruthlessly bounce spam-bot accounts). Also, to those unfriended, I don't intend any kind of personal insult by my action: it's just that I don't feel I really connect with your posts the way a regular reader should. If you perceive a similar lack of connection to mine, you can feel free to mutually unfriend, or not, as you see fit.
