  • [personal profile] charmian: more notifications problems at LJ?
    Currently there's a notifications problem at LJ, which apparently has something to do with a third party [EDIT: possibly Spamhaus]. People are getting fairly upset about it in the comments of the news post (well, also because of the banner color scheme).

    Also, LJ is currently blacklisted with Spamhaus.
  • [personal profile] azurelunatic: Spamhaus and LJ
    LJ has been listed by Spamhaus, which has likely got a decent amount to do with the notifications some people aren't getting. I propose a plan of action for users to help the Abuse Prevention Team squish as many spammerbots as humanly possible.

    sofiaviolet: fancy goldfish (fishie!)


    Ask Me Anything is still open for questions.


    Tuesday, I came home early because my uterus attacked. After some tylenol, I was fine for a night out with friends: TOMB! Me, Ellie, Mark, Spider, Jordan, James, Gillis, Liam, and Tommy Toxic, with Cid as our guide. Lots of fun. :)

    We tried to get dinner afterwards, but apparently everything near Fenway Park that serves booze becomes 21+ during Red Sox games or something? IDEK. We went to Vic's instead, which I personally consider a much better choice.


    • Feministe: Where There's Smoke
      Privilege is like smoke. When we’re living with it, you don’t notice it. It’s in the air. It’s all around us, invisible, ubiquitous. We don’t notice the privilege we share with others; we only notice what surprises our senses and our brains – the way I could smell pot smoke on someone, even when I was living with my cigarette-smoking parents.
    • Geek Feminism: Nominate guests posts for Geek Feminism
      We’re primarily interested in cross-posts from smaller blogs, in order to introduce our readers to sites they don’t know of yet, and to introduce writers to a larger readership. But if the author of a piece on a widely read website wants it to appear here, we’ll certainly consider it.

    Yeah, I know. But getting used to the full-time job has been really rough this time around. IDK.

    Work was fun today. In that special way where my eyes aren't used to contacts yet and I spent the whole day using a computer, and also in the way where one of the door alarms was going off pretty much all day because it was broken.

    I was supposed to go to a concert tonight, but I just could not manage it. :( I napped instead. After I write this post, I'm going to go back to bed.

    Retail Therapy

    I ordered some stuff from Fire Mountain Gems over the weekend, and it shipped today. \o/ So that'll be here next Monday, approximately. Unfortunately, I can't bring my travel jewelry kit to Grand Forks. I don't think the TSA would approve of my pliers. :( :( :( Plus I am only bringing a carry-on. DNW to pay stupid fee for checked bag.

    sofiaviolet: crafty-style letters spell out "make something" (make something)
    In my enthusiasm for this whole enterprise, I'll be continuing the daily link roundups. I never thought I'd be that kind of blogger, but I seem to have developed the habit, even before I was doing a specific kind of link-gathering. But while link-collecting is a useful service, I also want to be making other posts, especially in the context of [community profile] three_weeks_for_dw.

    One thing I'd like to do is provide a new song every day!

    Daily Song (right-click): Hole - Celebrity Skin
    Within the first week this song was on my ipod, it went straight to the top of the most-played list. It remains in the number one spot, with almost three times as many plays as the next song down.

    [personal profile] blnchflr has asked me to write about unreliable narrators, although this will take a few days. (I shake my fist at the end of the semester.) I am still accepting prompts, questions, et cetera, via comment/pm/email/carrier pigeon.

    sofiaviolet: loose tweets sink fleets (this is my twitter icon)
    So my parents read my DW and I just friended my dad on facebook. But if I want them to see my tweets, how would you recommend I do that? (Keeping in mind that they do not want twitter accounts and my mom doesn't understand RSS at all.)
