I'm WAY behind on LJ - I fell behind when I was sick, and since I'm really just getting back to 100% I stayed behind all last week and still haven't spent the time catching up on everything. I just kind of skimmed a couple of weeks' worth of entries to try to catch any key items.

In an effort to organize a bit more, tonight I cleaned up my friends list a bit - I unsubscribed from a number of communities I found I wasn't really paying attention to. So I left all my Ani DiFranco communities. (I still love her music, but I find I like her fandom less and less. Or at least I find it less and less relevant to anything - repeated discussions of favorite songs, questions about her personal life, gushing about how hot/sexy/etc she is, etc, etc. Yeah, like I didn't have enough of that when i ran her email lists.) I also dropped of the Boston communities since most of the traffic was meaningless to me anyway, and they were high volume.

I also cleaned up my groups a bit and created some new ones to help me catch up on things - including a few I've made public for anyone to check out:
Space Probes - this is for all of the personified space probe LJs I've found, which is quite a few actually. And if you know of any I've missed, please let me know - I find them highly amusing, and sometimes informative.

Comics - the comics I read via LJ. There are a few. I'll entertain suggestions for others I should be reading. :-)

Anime, Etc. - the various anime, convention, etc, journals I read. If I'm missing some, let me know and I'll check them out.

Also, while I'm at it, remember I have a request only group for my work related posts. So if you're on my friends list and want to read my work related postings, let me know and I'll add you. I haven't posted much there in a while, but I probably will soon.

I could not keep up with your friends list if I tried and I have about ten times as much free time as you do (yes, still).

I was somewhat surprised that you kept me; I saw the mindmap. I thought that would presage the fringe people you intended to drop. Perhaps this falls under the category where silence can mean anything from technical failure, to busy, to annoyed.

I didn't drop any people, just groups.

How do you do the "groups to read" thing, like putting all the personified space probes together?

The groups are the same as those you use to limit visibility of your own posts. Both Logjam and Semagic have friends group editing features, or you can do it via the LJ web interface under Manage -> Friends -> Edit Custom Friends Groups.

Then to read a specific group you use the Friends Filter, from the same screen - or just put the group name after the standard friends URL.

If you want to allow other people to use your groupings this way, you make the group 'Public'. I did that on the three I posted.

I didn't see gravity_probe_b on your "Space Probes" list; it appears to be rather new.
