Title: Coexistence Alpha (implemented as a CSS overlay for Neutral Good )
Credit to: [personal profile] timeasmymeasure (sourced original theme) and [personal profile] solarbird
Base style: Neutral Good
Type: Mobile-aware responsive theme, in alpha test.
Best resolution: Any.
Tested in: Mobile Safari, Safari (desktop), Firefox on MacOS/OS X.
Features: Fully responsive/mobile-aware theme in alpha test, intended to be the basis for a simple and clear base theme for new users. Intended to be applied to reading pages, other journals (view in your style), and so on. Avoids horizontal scrolling in as many cases as possible through compaction and rescaling of objects. Avoids iOS autozoom in comment forms. Addresses deep nesting in comment chains on mobile, and additional replies made by the reader therein. Intended to be aware of and respect user customisation, including user-chosen colours.

Navbar 2.0 is a cosmetic redressing of the Navbar for more modern appearance and some improvements in behaviour.

This is an Alpha release; I'm looking for testers. )

azurelunatic: A castle with rockets and fire cannons with the DW D on it. (Castle Dreamwidth)
[personal profile] azurelunatic posting in [site community profile] dw_dev
So we've got a code push coming up tomorrow! The code push will include stuff from mid-February until now. With one small exception, most of this is not yet live on the site. (The exception is the stuff that [staff profile] mark faithfully checked in, so the repository matches what's live in production.)

This tour covers April. It was a busy, busy month: 53 total issues resolved
Contributors: [ profile] NightFlyer, [ profile] afuna, [ profile] kaberett, [ profile] kareila, [ profile] rahaeli, [ profile] srukle, [ profile] zorkian

[staff profile] karzilla was doing something akin to NaNoWriMo for development, and it shows!

This is [ profile] NightFlyer's first contribution! Welcome!

And unless someone sneaks in some fixes under the wire, that's it for now!

I made the decision a while back (a few weeks) to Exercise Every Day. On days when I leave the house, it's not a problem; it's a half-mile walk to the bus stop, with a pretty steep slope for part of the distance, on top of whatever walking I'll be doing when I get off the bus, and then coming home. On days when I don't go somewhere, it's a bit more of a specific effort: our apartment complex has a gym that's down the hill from us, so I have to walk down to the gym (a nice walk, through some wild greenspace, and along a pond with ducks) and then exercise at the gym (which I do for 20 minutes, while listening to music which helps a lot), but it's not too onerous a chore.

Well, today I'm not going anywhere, but I am deliberately deciding not to exercise, because yesterday Spouse and I walked across what felt like half of Seattle, and I am SORE. I keep having to stand up and stretch, and I'm probably going to take a hot bath later. I might even walk down to the gym and make use of the hot tub down there, because OW MY MUSCLES.

This is the first day since I made my original decision when I've opted not to Do The Thing, and I do not feel at all guilty or conflicted about not Doing The Thing because OOOWWWWW.

I set a personal goal of resolving 30 issues and/or submitting 30 pull requests in the month of April.

Assuming everything I have in the queue right now is eventually accepted, I can take credit for closing 31 issues and merging 34 PRs, and I've still got 4 days left.

Honestly, if I hadn't been pacing myself, I probably would have done more but been more frazzled as a result. As it is, I'm thinking I could probably do it again in May, as long as my wrists hold up.

LFG: Hordie Needs Help

[personal profile] elynne
I want to play WoW again. I'd love to get into a guild. Finding a guild that matches my criteria has been vanishingly difficult. If you know of a guild that is:

1. Horde
2. on any US server (I'm willing to transfer my main! and start new alts! anywhere! I'd prefer not PVP but I'm even willing to try that!)
3. not Raid-Focused (raiding is fine, I'm just not into it, and I'm not interested in a guild that demands a 910+ gear score with Heroic Steam Vaults cleared or whatever the current bar is)
4. active (preferably more than like three people on at a time, and people who are willing to talk about stuff)
5. not a seething bag of dicks (you know what I mean here)

please, please, PLEASE let me know? I'm currently investigating a guild on Emerald Dream, which is an RP-PVP server, and PVP servers scare me, but I'm that desperate. If you know someone who you think once mentioned a guild like this, pass on a mention? I promise I'm a good guildie...

Don't get too excited yet. This is just to say that I may be posting here more often in the future. And to announce that I will NO LONGER BE CROSSPOSTING TO LJ, and in fact I'm finally going to get around to the great "delete every god damn thing off LJ" project I've been putting off for months, because NOPE. LJ's servers have officially burned down, fallen over, and sank into the swamp, as far as I'm concerned.

That's all here for now. Maybe more later? WE SHALL SEE... /dramatic music

As mentioned in my last post, I will be taking the Dreamhack server down for maintenance in 30 minutes! I'll edit this post once it starts and again when it's back up.

10:04am BST: I have restricted logins to admins and am beginning the maintenance now. This will involve a reboot and some diagnostics before opening it back up.

10:58am BST: The maintenance is done, and logins are unrestricted again!

It's been a stressful few days. Heather's father-in-law passed away late last week after a brief hospitalization, and the funeral was yesterday afternoon. And the day before that was Easter, with all the musical and family obligations that entails. Everything went well, though. I got to meet H's wonderful mother-in-law for the first time, and on Easter I got to see my favorite uncle for the first time in probably a year. (I was supposed to see him at Thanksgiving, but he was bedridden with stomach flu.)

We watched Harvey at my mom's house on Sunday afternoon, which is a classic black and white film starring Jimmy Stewart as an affable guy whose best friend happens to be a six foot tall invisible rabbit. So that was interesting. And Mom and I had planned to go this morning to a matinee of Going in Style, the new crime caper comedy with Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman. I'll probably still go, although right now I feel like I'd rather just curl up with an overdue library book.

The kids seemed to have a good holiday. In addition to the usual candy, Will got Math Fluxx and Connor got Exploding Kittens. We got another Lego Dimensions character, too, although I haven't found the time to play recently. Still pouring most of my available hours into Dreamwidth stuff.

Hi all,

I'm going to need to schedule some maintenance for the Dreamhack server as I've just discovered that the quota settings haven't taken effect. I'm therefore going to schedule maintenance for Wednesday 2017-04-19, 10am BST (5am EDT, 2am PDT) (about 36 hours from now) for up to 2 hours. (It shouldn't actually take that long, but I'm reserving it just in case.)

This maintenance will involve a reboot of the Dreamhack server. I will also be restricting logins until the maintenance is done, as the nature of the maintenance means that it will need as little data modification done as possible.

I'll post again once the maintenance starts, and edit that post when it ends.
