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!, that's done then

I completed one last import of posts and comments from LJ to Dreamwidth a few days ago. This morning I pressed the delete button for the LJ account. Everything that I had there should be here, so the records remain intact. All the same, it felt a little like losing an old friend. An old friend that I hadn't talked to in a couple of years, but still.

I'm going to try to check in here more often and maybe look for and jump into a couple more communities that fit my interests. I miss the longer-form posting and commenting that this sort of place allows. (Facebook just isn't the same.) Yet I'm not sure if I can reacquire the skills and habit.

Time will tell.

Boy meets boy. Boy moves in with boy. Boy invites boy to investigate crimes. Boy is kidnapped by boy's arch nemesis. Boy dates boy, and they run off into the night together. Boy cures boy's psychosomatic limp. Boy saves boy's life from a serial killer. Boy tells boy not to giggle at crime scene. Boy meets boy's brother (see 'arch nemesis'). Boys wander off for Chinese food and their new life together...

The importer has (mostly) caught up!

Our content importer has mostly caught up with its backlog; almost everything that's still listed as being "in the queue" are jobs that were tried, failed once or more with a temporary failure, and are waiting to try again. (The importer tries a few times, at successively longer intervals, when it gets a failure it thinks might be temporary/might correct itself later on.) This means that new imports scheduled now should complete in hours (or even minutes), not the "several days" it's been taking.

If you tried to schedule a second import while the first one was still running, at any time in the past 10 days or so, you may have confused the poor thing. If you think your import should be finished by now and it isn't, and you're seeing "Aborted" on the Importer Status part of the Importer page, feel free to open a support request in the Importer category and we'll look into it for you. (It may take a little bit before you get a response; those of us who have the access to look into importer problems have been really busy for the past two weeks or so, and I at least need a few days to catch my breath a bit before diving back into the fray! But we'll do what we can.)

I hope all y'all are continuing to settle in well to your new home!
