Welcome to the New Year

We start with a couple questions to my friends and associates who've been playing in the LJ world longer than I have. Do things suddenly rearrange themselves on New Year's Day? Does Frank the Goat wander through the ethereal place and adjust things to suit his sense of humor?

I some how managed to leave the Box on overnight, with an LJ window open, from New Year's Eve through afternoon on New Year's Day, so even though I disconnected from the Internet LJ figured I was still logged in when I re-connected. But yesterday afternoon I logged off the 'Net and then shut down the box. Spent time on the 'Net after that, but primarily to let SWMBO new PC download the plethora of Microshaft Updates it needs to patch the holes found since the version of W2K on it was released. When I dialed up and logged in today, LJ thinks I'm still logged in (shouldn't be, it's supposed to log-off when I close the browser window), and my LJ appearance is one of the default ones.

"Curiouser and curiouser," said Alice.

I've found that periodically LJ "forgets" to log me off when I close the browser, sometimes for several days at a time. I don't know what causes this, but it doesn't really distress me; of course, my computer is also in a secure environment where I don't have to worry about unauthorized people getting into my journal.

Not distressed; definitely curious. I'll keep an eye on it and see. I think mostly what caught my eye is that I'd done some playing with the appearance of things, and as I mentioned it's taken on one of the default settings as well. Seemed reasonable to blame it on Frank the Goat.

Right now the Box (or the Calf, which is what my sister calls my Gateway Laptop) is in a secure environment (home). When I travel, I usually reset things to require a login.

It's all magic, after all.

I have no idea. I've never done that.
