No favourite film but I do have a favourite film activity. I like to watch a film on Boxing Day. I've done this since 1989 when I moved to Albany, Western Australia for work reasons. The best period for this was when they released the three Lord of the Ring films, each a year apart, around Christmas. The year after that ended I watched Narnia, but the sequel wasn't released in time for the year after.

ESTP - The Doers
The Doers are happiest with action-filled work which craves their full attention and focus. They might be very impulsive and more keen on starting something new than following it through. They might have a problem with sitting still or remaining inactive for any period of time.

|Your Psyche is Violet|
People trust you to rescue them from bad situations, and you usually come through.
While you are quite enlightened, you find that your path is very lonely.
When you are too violet: you can't connect to ordinary life or ordinary people
When you don't have enough violet: you lack wisdom and can't learn from the past
You're a Slytherdor! You are a natural leader and have the personality to back it up. Often people are hesitant to approach you because they feel that you will reject them. You have a bit of a temper but most of the time you're able to keep it in check; however when you are really pissed off, people better watch out. In your life you have a lot of things you want to accomplish, whether it's for yourself or another cause. You can be determined in trying to pursue this goal but your morals are too steady to allow you to be absolutely ruthless. You don't let many people know this, but you actually like the idea of chivalry (but you try to keep this buried) and you try to live your life with honor. You don't back away from tough decisions. Your weakness is that sometimes you can be arrogant, you forget about the 'lesser people' and this leads you to underestimate your opponents. With the charisma of a Gryffindor and the ambition of a Slytherin you can be great in life!

The other handy LJ thing that I use is SeMagic, an LJ client for your dedicated computer (rather than using the browser based posting system).
The advantage of the browser based method of posting is that you can do it at any computer that you're logged onto LJ with. The advantage of using a dedicated client (and it's the same with e-mail clients) is all the extra stuff that you can do with it. You can find a list of downloadable clients (for different platforms) at the LJ site.
In comparison with web interface, the client offers additional editing operations including WYSIWYG editing, macro shortcuts, autoreplace, spellchecking in different languages using either MS Word ( or OpenOffice) or internal spellchecker, saving and loading entries to/from files including preformatted drafts and autosave. Also the client can notify about friends’ birthdays, track changes of friends list and notify about updates at friends’ journals using checkfriends protocol.
I think I like it because I can fiddle with my entries so much, and I especially like the History function (see screenshot below) as I can easily search for old posts and get URLs for them.
You can also set up more than one account, and on more than one server (like LiveJournal and Insane Journal, see pic below) and also post to multiple logins/servers. For folk thinking of migrating from LJ, this is one way of still keeping the ones they left behind up to date.
So, do you use an LJ client too? If so, which and why?
Just in case you didn't know, LJArchive is a windows application that can back up an LJ type journal or community (you have to own the journal or be a member of the community though). It runs under Microsoft's .NET Framework (you have to have at least .NET 1.1 installed) and acts as a browser for downloaded and backed-up comments.
It backs up the text of the entries only, not any image or youtube files that might appear in those entries, though the coding is still intact and if either is still on the web it'll show them with the entry. You can also backup comments to entries as well.
The current version doesn't back up tags, but the search function (see screenshot above) works on a text basis and can quickly identify old posts if you can remember what you were talking about. There's also statistics and such like.
As a number of my LJ friends have either left LJ, or considering leaving leaving, I thought that this might be useful in backing up what you wrote, or read. So, Linux users (like rashelleym) want to post a comment with a link to a Linux equivalent?
