Updates of late

For those who were wondering, my previous entries that cross-posted from my Twitter account were my updates from my trip to New Orleans to see my friends Neil and Hunter get hitched. I've been using Hootsuite lately to update my Facebook accounts, but it doesn't have a direct LJ interface; however, I linked my Twitter here, so I use that instead, knowing it'll end up here eventually. I know, way too convoluted for such a jacked-in information age such as the one we live in, but there it is. :P

Welcome back!
Glad you had a good trip! I'd be curious to see New Orleans one of these years.

Yeah, it's really annoying that there's no good solution to simul-posting to FB/LJ/Twitter, and there's no chance I can convince my friends to adopt one platform.

TweetDeck has let me post to FB/Twitter simultaneously, and LJ rips my Twitter feed, so that's alright, but Tweetdeck is being discontinued and I believe their API is being fragged also because Twitter believes most of their Android users use the regular Twitter app. Dorks.

The other irritating thing is that FB used to let you set-up your friends' status update page as an RSS feed that I could drop into LJ and read while reading LJ updates...then they broke that.

Re: Welcome back!
I am *not* happy with the FB/LJ interface, especially considering I have two FBs (Joshua and Alan) and don't want to connect either to my LJ. Twitter, at least, is something I use very infrequently (basically Pennsic, and a few trips here and there).

Hootsuite acquired Seebo, which had acquired Ping.fm, which supposedly was able to update your LJ status remotely, but I'm not finding anything on Hootsuite that tells me how to use it (I think it was a recent aquisition so they probably don't have it all integrated yet). Still, one place to update all my statuses would make me a happy user. :)

I know. And I post more thoughtful/verbose stuff here, but who reads it but us weird hangers-on? ;)
