I think I've now been through all of the notifications of people adding me over the last few days, and added them back. If I haven't subscribed to you and granted you access then let me know!

As a note, I don't have access to Dreamwidth at work, so replies will be a little sparser than usual. I don't like typing long things on my phone, so anything more than a sentence or two will have to wait for me to get home for a reply.

On which note, can anyone recommend a small bluetooth keyboard I could pair with my phone, in case I _did_ want to write a longer post on it?

And finally, for those playing along on FB, hopefully this post will appear there as a link to the DW post rather than the LJ one. Let's see how prompt IFTTT is!

I have the "Amazon Basics" Bluetooth keyboard and find it a nice compromise between size and portability. also, cheap.

I like this one for use with my phone. It's not too small, and I'm a sucker for a folding keyboard.

The backlit one (the other option from the page) is full laptop sized; I use it with an iPad mini and a small stand so I've got a writing platform that fits in my back pocket.

If you have access to email at work: you can reply to comments by just replying to the comment notification!

Oh, ugh. Mutter mutter mutter work filters mutter.

You don't have to reply from the address the email was sent to, but you do have to tell Dreamwidth about the address you're replying from before you reply. It runs off the same list of email addresses as the post-entries-by-email option, and you can add more addresses on the mobile tab of Account Settings.

Heh. When I worked for a Very Large Insurance And Financial Company back in the mid-to-late 90s to early 00s, they had a draconian web filter, plus they logged all URLs that everyone visited (by your login ID) and regularly audited them, so people would regularly have their manager come in and say "what was the business purpose for you looking at such-and-such a site" even if the site itself wasn't blocked.

However, their filter only worked on HTTP/HTTPS requests (and even then, only on ports 80 and 443). Nobody blocked or monitored outgoing SSH. I would come in for my shift, pop in the floppy I had downloaded PuTTY onto, and log into my server at home, from which I could do anything I wanted...

Nope! The thing that processes emailed-in clients has the most hackish regular expressions in the world to try to identify and strip quoted text. :)

HA. Yeah, those auto-appended "if you received this email in error, please do us the courtesy of taking yourself around back and shooting yourself" signatures are things we can't strip, but we do strip everything after a "-- " (space important) in hopes of catching most of them. Looks like your company doesn't put the signature separator before the boilerplate, but I wonder if you could set up something in your client to do it automatically...

I use FB and wordpress more than this, but I have always kept my private persona on LJ. Moving it here was only after necessity. That said, I am enjoying dreamwidth, and its forcing me to look for active profiles so my feed isn't GRRM, you, and largely dead air.
