April 11th, 2010 - Doodle-A-Day.com — LiveJournal
Scribbles from the Ballpoint Pen of Stan!
20100410


I started this doodle with just a general pencil-top eraser shape and no real idea where I was going beyond that. It turns out that eraser turned into a fish guy.

On a different note, I wasn't sure I was going to be able to post a doodle today. Livejournal has apparently been doing some upgrades to their servers ... which is good, but are causing insane problems in accessing the scrapbook and managing pictures (and sometimes just loading pages) ... which is bad. I don't know if anyone noticed, but there was no doodle on Friday simply because I couldn't get the site to load properly during the morning or afternoon ... and then I forgot to try again in the evening. (Not 100% LJ's fault ... but I'm still sticking them with the lion's share of the blame.)

If this continues during the coming week, I wouldn't be surprised if there was another skipped day somewhere along the line.

I'm torn in my thoughts on the matter. On the one hand, it seems as though Livejournal is trying to improve their service to make everything easier and quicker. On the other hand, all of this came out of left field and I needed a friend to tell me WHY the problems were happening. LJ never gave me any advanced warning or made it EASY for me to figure out what was happening.

If I wasn't so busy with other work, I think I'd have spent the day exploring ways to migrate my journaling activities to another site without losing all my past content. (It would make me VERY sad if I had to lose the 3+ years of doodle archives.)

Now we'll just have to wait and see how things pan out in the wake of the server improvements.
