running, bomb tech

(attempting to test broken lj-cut in RTE)

So about that explosion thing. I had a half-drunk bottle of strawberry-pomegranate soda, and I'd left it on the floor of my room over-day, thinking I wouldn't need to chill it. (this is the kind that hcolleen  can't have.)

I show up to work, toting it. I get ready to start my day, and I loosen the lid.

Collapse )

Cap blows off in my hand. Stunned, I stare at the smoking bottle. There's no spray.

My co-workers laugh at me extensively.

I drink the soda anyway.

PSA: the broken lj-cut in rich text editor

One of my glorious fellow volunteers, daydreamer, was able to make the lj-cut break in just the way that a whole bunch of people have been experiencing. This means that developers were able to duplicate it.

:D

It involves an lj-cut and an lj user tag, and it's so very glorious a bastard freaky bug. :D I'm so happy that she found it.


I wouldn't know when there will be a fix to go live, but this one has been raising the stress level of support considerably, because when LJ breaks, ain't no one happy. We use LJ too.

In the last 24 hours, I posted the following to Twitter:
  • Monday, 0024: We have determined that the redhead will still be the redhead even after her hair goes all child-of-the-Rowan.
  • Monday, 0028: I trimmed the end of my braid tonight after realizing how fried the ends were. (Ends were not half so bad as years ago. Yay.)
  • Monday, 0030: Nail polish dried fast, and resisted most overt scuffing, even with laundry and general "wtf is on my floor" duties. May have a brand winner
  • Monday, 0651: WTF jellyfish. (Twitter is actually handy. And that means the opening act was yesterday, and the illusory relief was the day prior.)
  • Monday, 0733: Political humor: McCain bluescreen challenge = Barakrolled! Clever! http://tinyurl.com/56r36z
  • Monday, 0735: @semanticist I would say that you're married so you can take an explanation of this, but given E's biology, it's not within your experience.
  • Monday, 0753: Political: looks like voters in certain US states are being dropped: http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2008/9/8/0144/73374/148/589714

  • Monday, 0954: Have taken hColleen to bus stop, got more laundry started. What next.
  • Monday, 0955: Trying BPAL: Satyr even though it is not intended for a female. We shall see.
  • Monday, 1029: Nail polish still mostly intact. This is incredible.
  • Monday, 1037: @semanticist I am sure! If I haven't elected to reproduce within the next 5 years I may have the thing out.
  • Monday, 1112: Yesterday I was pretty sure I was sickening for something. Today I feel pretty much OK, just a little stuffy.
  • Monday, 1113: Back to one braid today, although I do have it sort of smashed into a bun shape with clever application of scrunchie.
  • Monday, 1430: Room has been roombaed. Next: my bed is full of woe and also rocks.
  • Monday, 1439: Politics: a fellow Alaskan weighs in; this sounds sane & like what I'd say: http://tinyurl.com/5fg6h6
  • Monday, 1453: @semanticist I'm glad you know better. Literal rocks. Semiprecious and polished, but literal rocks. :D
  • Monday, 1513: Rocking out to old-school Duran Duran
  • Monday, 1550: Oh yes I did just invoke his mom. :D
  • Monday, 1552: @mayerman @nudaydreamer OMG yes. Not burning microwave popcorn should be a part of a mandatory 1-semester home ec class in high school.
  • Monday, 1704: Best friend and I are having the sort of smartass conversation that would be geek flirtation if it weren't us. Cool but frustrating.
  • Monday, 1720: Bed has been made. Floor has been vacuumed. Rugs are washed. Laundry is done. Too tired to go Out & Vash is on 1/4 tank anyway.
  • Monday, 1840: Debating our mutually questionable pr0n habits with best friend, digging up the past and embarrassing each other. I think box in closet next
  • Monday, 1905: *furious blushing* Now he's citing file names.
  • Monday, 1910: @marcelle42 It was my former roommate's file in any case, questionable anime: "Secrets of the Necronomicon" (mine was eps of New Angels)
  • Monday, 1916: Oh, I am not going to stop blushing any time this *year*. (His prior arguments re: email? All valid, esp b/c he shared email addy w/parents)
  • Monday, 1920: ...possibly not next year either.
  • Monday, 1921: @semanticist Amazingly enough, I'd managed to clear the bed of socks on the previous sweep-through of room.
  • Monday, 2053: Called Dawn; generalized hilarity ensued when she called back and we proceeded to gossip for an hour.
