It’s been a while since I actu­al­ly signed in to slash­dot. I sub­scribe to the RSS feed on LJ and read any arti­cle whose head­line catch­es my fan­cy. I signed in today and noticed new stuff that did­n’t seem to be there when I orig­i­nal­ly set up my account long ago. There’s a jour­nal there? And a user pro­file? and you list friends, foes, and freaks? Odd.

And sim­ply know­ing that one is to list these things and that I don’t even know any­one else’s user ID (although I def­i­nite­ly know peo­ple who read /.), makes me feel sor­ta lone­ly hav­ing my pro­file sit­ting there all unlinked. Weird, huh? Neu­rot­ic? Prob­a­bly, at least a bit.

That’s one of the few places where I’m not Tech­nomom, but Cyn­Tech­nomom. My first account there was Tech­nomom, but appar­ent­ly I did­n’t sign in for so long that the account went inac­tive and I had to cre­ate a new account. I actu­al­ly man­aged to get the pass­word for who­ev­er has that account now by sim­ply send­ing in an email and ask­ing for it, then real­ized what had hap­pened and asked the site admins to con­tact her and have her change her pass­word so I would­n’t know it anymore—I’m rather attached to that user ID, but it would have been total­ly uneth­i­cal to try to take it back at this point. The old com­ments I’d made using that ID seem to have scrolled away, any­way. I’m sor­ta curi­ous about her, but all I know is that her name is JoAnn and she seems to be a programmer.
