[Grief] LJ tweaks and update

Hello again to everyone,

Did a little more brainstorming on the LJ project today - I have made a few 
adjustments, all of which I now have up and explained on the user info 
account page.

Basically, the more I thought about it, I realized that the password sharing 
plan could result in some potential messes, or repetitions - so, instead of 
doing that, if somebody has an "advance" review ready, just send it directly 
to me, and I'll post in when we get to the disc in question.

I say "when" because this also means that if someone doesn't neessarily feel 
like waiting around to listen to a particular one, you can do it whenever 
you want, and it will be with me ready and waiting for when the time comes 
(as I would like to keep the site itself running in chronological order.) I 
will keep everything in a file, and post them in the order that I receive 

Sound good? Hope so. Any other comments and suggestions always welcome. (And 


PS to Andrew G. - maybe too soon to tell yet - but in the next few weeks, if 
things seem to be picking up a little steam, maybe a mention/link to it 
somewhere on the Brainwashed site? (Could also bring more contributors in,

>1a. To get back to the main journal page, just click the tglive link at the

>2. You (or anybody) can comment simply by clicking the "leave comment" link

>3. The "archive" link is rather self-explanatory. It'll show you when posts

>4. Basically, the reason you would need a password would be if you had a

>then you can go to town. I am committed to this idea/project, and would be

>things simple - but I'm not trying to hog all the action, or anything like 
>that. So - if you want a password, just e-mail me off list and let me know.

>5. On a similar note, if anybody else here has a LJ account and would like

>All I can think of at the moment. Hope everybody likes it, and again,

>PS. - I'll go ahead and start the Winchester (or Air Gallery, take your 
>picK) discussion sometime tomorrow or Sunday.
