Right, I've kind of solved the no notifications problem. Well, not really. I'm getting no e-mails, but comments on my blog are going in my messages inbox on LJ. No replies to things I've posted on friends blogs or communities though, but if yours is doing the same thing, you can change that here if you visit this link and choose the "notifications" tab. Still no e-mails, but at least you can check via the site without having to visit every single post you've ever commented on! I might still be slower in responding though.
Rubbish day today, but I'm nearly finished with a short fic I started yesterday, so if I decide I;m happy with it, I might post it.
