So, despite not having £80 spare, I bought a permanent account. It'll save me subscriptions in the long run, anyway.
Expect a new layout soon. Not that you'll see it - you only read this thing on your friends page, right?
EDIT: An unexpected bonus to paying for my account - my font appears to have automatically become smaller, making both my journal and friends page more pleasant for me to read.
[DISCLAIMER: I never said it would look better - I like my VDU-burn colour scheme!]
