I've had it with Blogger

I've been having problems for about 2 years now - blogger seems to find it very hard coping with Firefox on Linux. I had just written about 1000 words on an important subject and Firefox crashed, losing all the info. This has happened before when I was using early versions of Firefox. Since I seem to have no problems accessing other blog sites I'm going to assume the problem is with blogger.

So at some point in the future I am going to migrate to another blog type.

Any suggestions of where to go? Wordpress? Typepad?

I like Livejournal - I don't post much, more often leaving comments on other blogs, and I like the fact that comments are threaded, and it notifies me of replies to my comments - but not to all replies to the original post. Also that I can respond from within the email that sends the notification. These features presumably helps to create the more active conversations and community that I observe there...

Plus there's some interesting people in the development field who blog there and I like the fact that I can keep track of them all easily with my "friends" page. Okay, there's plenty of interesting people elsewhere, but keeping track of them isn't as convenient.

"I love blogger.
I loved blogger before I even knew it was called blogger.
I love blogger so much you HATE blogger compared to how much I love blogger".

Blogger works!

Just save as a draft more, and if that fails, write in OpenOffice and then save, adding links last.

It works Neil.

I have linked to your economics and peak oil articles all over cyberspace. Don't do it.

Have a Tim Tam Slam, and relax for a day. You'll eventually come back to that piece you were writing with a clear mind.

Nothing is crash-proof. Nothing. Just use slightly more careful systems and you'll be OK.

This is your home.
You know this.
Nothing is crash-proof.
You'd regret moving.

Stay!
