Icons and Dreamwidth

I've been unable to import this journal to Dreamwidth because apparently I no longer know the password. (It had been saved in my browser all this time.) I'm going to need to do a password reset.

But after poking around I've realized that I probably will be posting from here to Dreamwidth instead of the other way around.

One of my favorite aspects of LJ has always been the user pics. I lovingly curated a collection of almost 200 when I was active. Dreamwidth charges $1 per extra icon slot! Not my idea of fun!

Back when I transitioned this journal from QoS to Queen_in_Autumn I went through and "retired" a lot of my userpics. It's very frustrating now as I'm going back through my archives to realize how many of them have reverted to my default Queen of Swords instead of whatever I had put there. I've actually re-uploaded a bunch of them, and since the keywords still match they show up again. I'm not fretting over it too much, but it is disappointing.

They were all saved in the original form back when I exported my account using the export/archive tool, but it hasn't been updated since Windows 7 and now I can't open those files.

    Oh my goodness. . . This will (likely) mean a change in my blogging habits! I haven't had LJ access at work for more than a decade.
