here is another entry about a specific layoff in the SUP offices. I only link to it because of the comments; there are a couple of links for automated journal archiving and mention of another project called Dreamwidth, which is still in development, but maybe with some support.. well, who knows. oh and I'm not eriktrips on facebook after all; I'm just plain Erik Schneider (yes that's me giving out identifying information freely on the web. at this point I'm very easy to find so it's not a big deal).

I wonder if our russian overlords are going to reassure us at any point. I wonder if they can. isn't it great how the global market allows the best ideas to flourish worldwide? (that's me thumping all the Ayn Rand fans on the head. not that I expect there are many among you.)

you made me download a program and archive my journal to my hd. I should have done that years ago, so thanks for the prodding.

You can add me on facebook. sixinchheels@gmail.com

There are something like four pages of Erik Schneiders on Facebook.

I know. that's another reason why I'm broadcasting my other web haunts, so if anyone wants to find me, they can. I doubt that it would be possible to re-create what we have here at LJ, but regrouping at various points is still possible.

I'm hoping that they are simple "reorganizing" and don't let it die. the social connections here have grown so complex that it is like a living organism in its uniqueness. something similar might follow, but it won't be the same.

Strange. Schneider is my mom's maiden name.

interesting. there are lots of us in the US--big germanic migration in the mid-1800s. lots of them went to Iowa and S.Dakota and homesteaded on Lakota and probably Fox land. my grandmother's family's property was sold back during the depression so I have no share I could give back. :(

so there is some german or swiss on your mother's side of the family?

Yes, German from south dakota.

interestinger and interestinger! I do not know the names of very many people on my paternal grandfather's side of the family, but they were a Schneider family somewhere near Redfield, S Dakota, I think. he married Elsie Brugger, whose grandfather Peter Brugger took land on the Marzahn homestead in Redfield. I know more about grandma Elsie's side of the family, but they homesteaded in Delaware County Iowa, near Colesburg I believe. Big German influx there.

Edit: that's grandma Elsie's mother's family, the Mertens, who homesteaded in Iowa.

if we're related I'm going to faint.

You know more than I do. My great grandfather died when my grandpa was two. He was in a dairy barn fire. I don't know much more than that.

My great grandma's name was elsie. She too married a schneider. Elsie Lipke but I'm not sure of the spelling of the last name. She was Mohawk and Onondaga. She is the one I wrote the LJ Idol entry about this week.

ah ok. I like the teacup story. I'm going to have to do some research now. I only know about my grandma Elsie's family because her mother put together a scrapbook all about her family from the time they immigrated through my father's generation. my grandfather's name was Milo Schneider and he met my grandma in S Dakota; beyond that I know very little about his family. grandma is still alive at 98. I need to get up to Seattle soon to see her.

I have no idea when or how my great grandfather Schneider died. there must have been a lot of them in the region, though. it is a common German name. grandma Elsie has unrelated Schneiders in her own ancestry--it gets complicated!

That scrap book sounds neat. I wish my family talked more about the history.
