S2 styles that support custom CSS for "easy" customization. Why list this? Because it took me a while to find one that I could do this to when customizing [livejournal.com profile] postrodent's journal for him.

Egypt Urnash (6:26 AM): I just gave up on something TOTALLY GEEK STUPID.
wolfienamedsarah (6:26 AM): Ooh?
Egypt Urnash (6:27 AM): I tried getting Livejournal up and running on my machine.
wolfienamedsarah (6:27 AM): XD
Egypt Urnash (6:27 AM): The tarballs they have of the source are terribly old. And the CVS checkout won't work. So, fuck it.
6:28 AM : After finding a bit of S2 code that did search-and-replace, and making my LJ style auto-replace <br /><br /> with <p> for much more Proper HTML, I had a mad urge to implement Markdown. As S2.
6:28 AM : Then I looked at Markdown's code and decided i don't want to write grep in s2.
6:29 AM : then i remembered that LJ is written entirely in Perl, as is Markdown. Should be simple to integrate! Right?
6:29 AM : <-- fucking insane



I also added a photo of myself to the bio page of my website and my info page on LJ, because, you know, I'm not afraid of people seeing me any more, and it's kinda fun to see what someone behind the words and images actually looks like, isn't it? I was going to do some silly scaling tricks with it on the LJ page, but LJ strips out embedded style in your bio. Suck.



Today's Unicode character is #9819, the Black Chess Queen.

Based on the lj interests lists of those who share my more unusual interests, the interests suggestion meme thinks I might be interested in ... )

So some people I know who have LJs don't really interact with them - they write in it, people watch and comment, and they don't participate in the discussion much. Others get in there and debate with the people who comment.

Ursula Vernon is pretty much the former kind of user. She's got a lot of people watching her for her entertainment value. And sometimes she touches a nerve and the comments blossom, because everyone just has to express their opinion on her subject.

This morning, she ranted about tampons. And got over a hundred comments on the things. All seem to be in agreement that it's a pretty unpleasant business, and that the whole marketing thing behind them makes them feel pretty unpleasant.

All in all, reading that entry and skimming its comments made me really, really glad I don't have a womb and never will.

bad idea

You might remember me playing around with friends graphs a few weeks ago.

Today, I decided to try and expand a little. I wanted to see my friends, and their friends, all related to each other. I grabbed the .dot file describing my own friends graph, then used that as reference to get the .dot files for people who I am involved in some sort of LJ friends relationship with - one-sided or covalent, I didn't care, I was just going down the list. After a few, I cut-and-pasted them end-to-end and ran it through the graph generator program.


It took a while. )
