slasha, baby!

Slashababy 2010 fics are up! 30 gift fics, authors not yet revealed, please read and comment on all of them!

This year, I revamped the web site: it's not spiffy but it's clean. It's nice not to be entirely dependent on LJ. I'll be poking at it, filling in the missing years, but it's a nice feeling to have it finally working.

random shit

abundantlyqueer is posting fic again! She's done more of the Elijah/Orlando "Dragon Slayer" AU, lots of plot and character tension, still in suspense. And a fantastic Green Street Hooligans fic, Matt (Elijah's character) / Pete (Charlie Hunnum), dialect written so well I could hear his voice: Kick Off.

funny things, free Mac thing, that word doesn't mean... )

More seriously: LiveJournal is purging old journals, the old suspended ones (kicked off for cause), and possibly some deleted by the users. And they're doing it now. Which means that familiar names may show up but are not the same people as they were before. Be careful before friending, k?

off to bed

trying this again

Dreamwidth invites - I have a couple left ETA none left evening of May 1st, but I should get more eventually. So, if you want them, please comment and I'll do what I can. There are already nifty new features (like comment preview, whee!) and bugs fixed daily: it's pretty exciting to be around.

DWO stuff - for interested parties only )

Happy May Day in any case!

(this is a repost of a cross-post because my first one failed. It's been a week like that.)

journaling and stuff

thefourthvine says: Sometimes you may say to yourself: all these people have me friended. And yet I posted a story (or a link, or four extremely compelling pictures of my cat, including one where she almost had a ribbon on her head) and many of them have not commented! You may wonder why. You may even be downcast in your wonderment and confusion.

She has been doing some careful research on this very topic, and she has all the answers. WHAT a relief to have it put in perspective that way ;-) If you are a lurker, that's OK with me. But just so you know, even short comments on any of my posts are precious. I am always greedy for more.

Plus: GIP. That there my icon is me, in my Big Chair, all blurry but that disguises all my chins. That is my laptop with my old-style rainbow apple sticker. I use the other one too much in my work persona.

This text is supposed to follow a test cut tag. It wasn't working on crossposting from DWO yesterday. Let's see if it does today. And some more Dreamwidth stuff:

+ zarah's post on Dreamwidth for Dummies

+ zvi's excellent post on How to follow someone who has moved to Dreamwidth (or most any other journaling /blogging system).

PS I have no invite codes, but probably will on April 30. Just tell me if you want one.

I am wilted

It's been really hot here. Way beyond my normal tolerance, as the temperatures are usually in the 70s F/ 20s C. Yesterday it was 91 F / 32.8 C! Today 89/ 31.6. I know that's normal summer for lots of people (even 10 miles inland or south), but we're wusses. Berkeley has eight to twelve really hot days a year, so we don't have air conditioning, even a swamp cooler, and our house just gets hot and stays hot. So please forgive me when I sound a bit addled and/or do not comment on something.

ack, cut didn't work )

I'll be cross-posting for the foreseeable future, I couldn't leave my peeps at LJ/JF/IJ! *clutches you all*

argh, insanejournal not sending comments

If I seemed to blow you off in the last four months, I am really sorry. I didn't get many of those comments, and didn't know I wasn't getting them!  Sigh.

I found out because golly, InsaneJournal does have a Message Center. However, I can't get the buttons to delete messages or even mark them as read. I do plan to file a support ticket on that.

alcohol issues comm over here

As IJ ramps up in fits and starts, it's hard to find things. So when my friend Jack told me about the [info]sobriety community, I offered to pimp it here. If you should (god forbid!) feel in need:

Barak's gone from LJ

Semi-unlinkable and definitely uncommentable announcement

Press release

Wordpress founder Mena Trott's blog entry

New CEO's statement (full of hot air & signifying nothing). Somehow I doubt he'll get fandom and LiveJournal.

(ETA: nicer formatting)

fixing the too-big feeds problem

There's a problem with making feeds (syndicated journals) on LJ and clones -- mainly important for communities. If the feed is too big, the receiving journaling system can't handle it and shows an error message that it's too big in the feed user info. This happens when the first 25 posts have a content greater than 300kb. If you are the maintainer of a community, please read this!

brown_betty has a solution: )

ETA: I thought I posted this over here on IJ, but it seems to have been set private, wtf? Anyway, am reposting with improved instructions, especially for communities.
