LJ has taken away the invite code for account creation, so if you want to create your own account, you can now do so without needing a special code.
All you have to do is go to the root directory (http://www.livejournal.com) and follow the directions.
I'm hoping some of you who I met out at Burning Man still read this thing. I haven't been keeping up nearly as well on the e-mail thing as I had intended, so I hope you create an account here, and add me as a friend. That way it'll be easier to know what you're up to. *hint*hint*
