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!

Yesterday I went to Mog on the Tyne again. I love that place so much, and really enjoy time chilling with the cats. We booked the first slot of the day and for the first half hour we were the only people there, so had undivided cat time. After that we had a wander around the main centre of Newcastle and had dinner at Smash Burger, which was very nice, and not a bad price for the meal deal -- something I always take into account because I still leave lots.

Before going we knew a dog cafe was going to open close to Mog, but getting there it seems it's actually right next door. Talking to staff they're not so happy about that, worried about barking disturbing the cats. Plus, worried about trade too, because I imagine it'll take some of their custom. I can see their points, but have to admit, once it opens I'm sure we'll be checking it out.

Today we booked theatre tickets. First to go and see Grease next week. The seats for that aren't that good as the show is so soon, but also tickets for Wicked. We've been thinking about getting those for a while, but the show isn't on until September next year and it felt really weird buying something so far in advance. But we asked about availability and they had great middle aisle stall seats about half way back, and for not a bad price for such a big production. So we got them. It'll be the first big staging I'll have seen, but people seem to like it, so fingers crossed we will too.

After that we walked -- and in James' case, got pushed -- into Sunderland town centre. We only intended to browse the shops, but somehow I walked into Yours and came out with a camouflage jacket. One minute I was looking at stuff, the next I'd seen this jacket and on a whim decided to try it on. Getting it off the hanger the material had no give, and I was sure it would be too small, but I tried it on, looked in the mirror and the assistant close-by said, that looks fantastic on you, but it's far too big. It turns out I needed a 22, which, the hell? How did that even happen?

I know I said no more buying clothes, but this is going to be perfect for the spring, it's lightweight and comfortable and should last for a good few months yet. Also, that assistant was amazing. We were talking and she was telling me how she'd lost loads of weight herself -- and still had a lot to go -- so totally understood about the body issues that come with dropping weight.

So yeah, a spendy morning, but I walked past Lush at least, I had some control. Just not a lot /o\

Tomorrow it's Guardians Day! And yes, it actually is tomorrow, my dates are right this time. It's also my FiLs birthday, so it's movie time at 12:30, then off to the in-laws.

1. Day off tomorrow! We're doing stuff (probably) but not until the afternoon, so I can still sleep in and relax in the morning.

2. I played a little Zelda tonight and found three shrines, two stables, and Hebra tower. That leaves only the two Gerudo areas that I don't have the towers for yet. I'm actually kind of sad to have so much of the map filled in. I remember when I first got off the great plateau and realized how huge the world is, it was so exciting, and now it's like, aww, I only have a little bit left to explore. ;_;

3. Somehow I don't have any new pics of kitties, but luckily I have plenty of backstock to choose from. Here's an explorer Jasper from a week or so ago.

Title: Defence, Pretence, Offence - Chapter 45/70 - Show the Truth
Author: Beren (aka Tasha)
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Disclaimer: This story is based on characters and situations created and owned by JK Rowling, various publishers including but not limited to Bloomsbury Books, Scholastic Books and Raincoast Books, and Warner Bros., Inc. No money is being made and no copyright or trademark infringement is intended.
Warnings: This story is canon compliant until the end of Order of the Phoenix and then goes AU. None of the HBP or Deathly Hallows plot will be used, or the Horcruxes for that matter since this story was planned before we knew the details about those things, and hence has it's own fanon. This includes birthdays and other information that have since been revealed on Pottermore and in further productions.
Summary: The threat of open war in on the horizon. The Order and the Ministry are of one accord and both know that where Harry Potter is, Voldemort will eventually be. Preparations are being made and this time the side of the light will not be caught unawares.
Summer classes, sabotage, revelations about Draco's father, teaching and the final showdown with Voldemort all await Harry and Draco in this exciting sequel to Gold Tinted Spectacles (LJ | AO3 | Wattpad).
Author's Notes: This is the second story in the Hecatemae universe. It starts up just after the end of the first instalment and I advice reading that one first so you understand the premise. Thanks go to my sister Sophie for the beta reading.
It has taken me 12 years to finally get around to finishing this, I very much hope everyone enjoys it.

1. Since my one meeting was yesterday instead of today, I didn't have to get going until a little after noon, and was able to sleep in and just relax this morning, which was nice.

2. Today's meeting was long and pretty boring but we all went to dinner afterwards (paid for by the company) at a fancy restaurant and the food was good and I had a good time. And we were finished around nine, which meant that there was no traffic coming home, whereas if I'd come back right after the meeting, it would have been right smack in the middle of rush hour.

3. Look at this cutie Molly cat!

1. My meeting with the company president got changed to today instead of tomorrow, which sucks because it was my day off and I had to drive to Gardena and then the person who was scheduled before me ended up going way over, so I had to wait for an hour and a half! But my review went well, and I got my raise, and now it's done with. And at least that means tomorrow I can just go for the afternoon meeting and can have the whole morning off.

2. We went to McDonalds for lunch and they have a new burger. It looks like the sriracha one was discontinued and instead they have a sweet bbq bacon one. I got it with the crispy chicken instead of hamburger and it was soooo good. Honestly probably the best burger I've ever had at McDonalds. (Not a terribly high bar, but it really is good!)

3. I only played Zelda for a bit today, but I did do four more shrines.

4. I posted more manga!

5. I got some super cute pics of Chloe tonight. :)

Genre: Humor, Sports
Status in Japan: 1 volume, ongoing
Scanlator: Megchan's Scanlations + Anima Regia
Scanlation Status: Ongoing
More Info: Baka Updates

Summary: Hino is obsessed with playing sports in high school, but not because he loves sports (he doesn't), or is any good at them (he's really not). He's doing it because that's the way to get a girlfriend (or so he thinks). After getting kicked out of half his school's sports clubs, he's still convinced he just hasn't found the sport he's truly destined for. When he (literally) runs into Noborito Ayako, manager of the rubgy club, it's love at first sight (for him), but all she's looking for is another warm body for the struggling rugby club. Could this be the chance he's been waiting for?

Chapter Summary: Hino's first rugby practice is not what he was expecting.

I wrote this whole post that was basically me thinking about quitting my brain meds just to see what happened. I realize this is a bad idea, and am not doing it, but I was wondering about the fact that it's not something quantifiable, so how do you know if your body has done something to fix itself? Like, is there anything that your brain can do to repair the differences in the chemistry? Or is it something that you're always going to need? I don't know.

Not that going off meds is something I should be looking at, I don't think. I'm hardly sleeping, constantly exhausted, and currently in a lovely phase of completely numb. Pretty sure none of those things indicate great mental health. I'm not having any worrisome symptoms though, so maybe this is just who I am now. I don't know. I'm feeling very disconnected to everything, and I can't engage much in the real world, because I keep having panic attacks when I read/see the news. Good times, good times.

Still working on the same two stories. I'm at a naughty bit for both of them, but right now reading and writing of the porn is not happening. Blah.

I gave up caffeine three weeks ago. I'm not having any side effects, and I'm not missing it, so that's good. It's weird though. Also I've surpassed the "we are 98% water" threshold, I think, and am edging closer to 99%. Eventually I'll just float everywhere.

There was actually something I was going to post about, but I don't remember what it was, so instead you get this. :D?
turlough: Gerard Way in faux furcoat, onstage at the Roseland Ballroom, NYC, 3 December 2010 ((mcr) gerard way is my favourite diva)

But then her brother walks over from the stage, bleak as an undertaker in his suit. "Gee. C'mon."

She downs the last of her drink and puts the cigarette out in the glass, meeting Gabe's eyes again with a little smile and another shrug. "Hold your horses, Mikey. I'm coming."

Gabe takes a careful breath as they cross the floor and vanish backstage. Lost moments shouldn't bother him when they can't mean anything.

Besides, there's still another ritual, and he sets that up now, pouring a glass of whiskey neat and setting a new pack of cigarettes beside it, with a book of matches. The pack is unopened, and a different brand from the one in his pocket. The whiskey's the ordinary, cheap stuff, not top-shelf like the gin.

He has time to gather all the glassware and wipe down half the bar before another figure emerges from backstage and comes over to take the stool Gee vacated.

"Hey, Gabe." Gerard's voice is low and tired, a hint of a laugh in it that doesn't hold much humor. He's wearing shirtsleeves and suspenders, his hair scraped back off his face with Brylcreem, and he downs half of the whiskey in one long swallow before he breaks the seal on the pack of cigarettes. "Thanks."

"No problem," Gabe says, wiping another stretch of the bar. The light's not so good over here, but he can see a smudge of cold cream at the curve of Gerard's jaw, and a hint of deep red at the corner of his mouth where Mikey missed wiping it clean.
