We're about to pull the lever on tonight's code push! Many of the changes we are making to the site are under-the-hood improvements, but these are the ones you are more likely to notice:

  • New account setting option for RP accounts, for future feature development.
  • Many more sites upgraded to use HTTPS links instead of relying on our SSL proxy.
  • Moved the Manage Icons page to /manage/icons and modernized the underlying code.
  • Increased the size limit for icon descriptions from 120 to 300 characters.
  • Various requested fixes for the image upload/management pages.
  • Improved processing of emailed entries for changes to entry security.
  • Improved processing of emailed comments for removal of quoted text.
  • Reading page with date filter now has previous / next day links.
  • Banned users hidden by default on the Manage Circle page.
  • Most importer failure messages will now include the name of the journal being imported, for the benefit of users running multiple imports.
  • People who read the RSS/Atom feed of your journal will see correct entry links and embedded content.
  • Whitelist embeds from: coub.com, airtable.com, mixcloud.com
  • New <user> tag sites: medium.com, imzy.com, facebook.com, instagram.com
  • New "other site" fields on user profiles: Imzy, Instagram

Once the code push starts, you may notice that the site is slow to respond, but it should remain available to use unless something goes badly wrong.

I'll update this post when the code push is finished. Stay tuned!

Update: All done! Let us know if anything seems more wrong than usual!

Spring Evening on Blind Mountain
by Louise Erdrich

I won’t drink wine tonight
I want to hear what is going on
not in my own head
but all around me.
I sit for hours
outside our house on Blind Mountain.
Below this scrap of yard
across the ragged old pasture,
two horses move
pulling grass into their mouths, tearing up
wildflowers by the roots.
They graze shoulder to shoulder.
Every night they lean together in sleep.
Up here, there is no one
for me to fail.
You are gone.
Our children are sleeping.
I don’t even have to write this down.

I meant to post this this morning, but then there were dishes to do, and then I worked on (well, brainstormed, anyway) my fledgling idea for Night on Fic Mountain, and then I went out for an Ingress walk in the gross swampy heat, and look it's almost 7pm. /o\

If you were around here on More Joy Day 2017, you'll probably have already seen this, but!:

([personal profile] movies_michelle gave me Gunnar/Sinbad and the prompt "sleep", and then I dunno what happened, there was a giant magic snake and stuff. :D )

The Sound of a Train
by Faith Shearin

Even now, I hear one and I long to leave
without a suitcase or a plan; I want to step
onto the platform and reach for
the porter’s hand and buy a ticket
to some other life; I want to sit
in the big seats and watch fields
turn into rivers or cities. I want to eat
cake on the dining car’s
unsteady tablecloths, to sleep
while whole seasons
slip by. I want to be a passenger
again: a person who hears the name
of a place and stands up, a person
who steps into the steam of arrival.

A whooole bunch of people have subscribed here recently, and preliminary research suggests everybody may be leaving LJ and deleting their journals. Is that the deal? Something about servers moving to Russia? Am I supposed to delete my LJ now in protest? Because I will.

The whole reason I haven't posted a lot since my return to posting is that right after I returned to posting, half the voting American public decided hey, let's give stupid and evil a try! So now I'm trying to make sure I play ALL the video games before the inevitable fiery apocalypse.

So what's the deal? And hi, you new people!

Humble Bundle is running a Bloom County bundle! Pay what you want, as little as US$1, for vols. 1-4 of the complete Bloom County digital library; paying more will get you more, but you can get all thirteen books (vols. 1-9 of BC, plus four more books of related Berkeley Breathed comics) for as little as US$15.

I really didn't have to think long about what icon to use for this post...

1. It is warm today. I am wearing a sleeveless shirt and right now I am barefoot. This makes me happy.

2. Relatedly, I did my biannual closet swap -- moved the winter stuff into storage more or less, or at least out of the way, and moved the warm-weather stuff back into rotation. Now that I have done this we will probably get two weeks of cold-and-rainy, or something, but it still feels good to have shifted the closet over.

3. The flowers we planted in a box on our wee mirpesset last weekend are blooming and they are lovely.

4. I ran into someone at the co-op today who saw me doing my job recently and wanted to tell me that she's rooting for me to get the permanent position. \o/

5. Someone nearby has hung a beautiful wind chime, and I like the way it peals.

Shabbat shalom to all who celebrate.

Fetch
by Tony Hoagland

Who knew that the sweetest pleasure of my fifty-eighth year
would turn out to be my friendship with the dog?

That his trembling, bowlegged bliss at seeing me stand there with the leash
would give me a feeling I had sought throughout my life?

Now I understand those old ladies walking
their Chihuahuas in the dusk, plastic bag wrapped around one hand,

content with a companionship that, whatever
else you think of it, is totally reliable.

And in the evening, at cocktail hour,
I think tenderly of them

in all of those apartments on the fourteenth floor
holding out a little hotdog on a toothpick

to bestow a luxury on a friend
who knows more about uncomplicated pleasure

than any famous lobbyist for the mortal condition.
These barricades and bulwarks against human loneliness,

they used to fill me with disdain,
but that was before I found out my metaphysical needs
                                        could be so easily met

by the wet gaze of a brown-and-white retriever
with a slight infection of the outer ear
                             and a tail like a windshield wiper.

I did not guess that love would be returned to me
as simply as a stick returned when it was thrown

again and again and again—
in fact, I still don’t exactly comprehend.

What could that possibly have to teach me
about being human?

1. Today I was good at my job and that felt good.

2. I am making roasted stuffed peppers right now and they are making my kitchen fragrant.

3. I am rich in friends, and there are a lot of people whom I love, and I am fiercely grateful for this, even when my heart aches because some of those beloveds are suffering.

4. The implausible chartreuse of early spring's first leaves, which I adore, every year.

5. The fact that even when life is not easy, I can feel in my bones that I am in a better place than I was a year ago.

Code push scheduled for Sunday night

We are planning to do a code push late this weekend, at approximately 8pm PDT / 11pm EDT / 3am UTC on Sunday, Apr 30 (or May 1 for you transatlantic types.).

I don't have a list of changes for you yet, but most will fall into the following categories: things users have complained about to support volunteers, things support volunteers have complained about to developers, things [staff profile] denise has complained about not working the way she expects them to (and as we all know, The Boss is Always Right), and things that were printing warnings over and over in the production server logs, making it hard to spot when less frequent, more urgent errors were being printed. Oh, and also all the unused code I ripped out at the roots, which if you notice that, I did it wrong.

To sum up: we are rolling out a bunch of requested changes, so thank you all for your feedback!

If you're new to Dreamwidth and interested in tracking our development process, our commit logs are published to [site community profile] changelog and [community profile] changelog_digest, and every month or so, one of our volunteers will translate those often-cryptic entries into witty, informative code tours! The most recent one was published on April 1, so we're about due for a new one. Hint, hint.

We'll update here again to let you know when the code push is imminent!

Everything Happens Twice
by Eve Robillard

That bird sitting dazed on the railing
has flown into your window before.

The dead-end street you’ve turned onto-
You did that just last month. The boss

calling you into his office
has nothing new to say.

There are only so many scripts.
Everything happens twice.

The friend who borrows your raincoat
will borrow your raincoat tomorrow. The parent

who never loved you enough
is doing it from the grave. You are writing

the very same poem
over & over again they are playing

that old, old song but it’s never
the very last dance. So smile at the guy

who drinks too much-
the one with forget-me-not eyes. Sleep

with the one who calls you
by another woman’s name.
