Links for you + NEW: LJ FIX!!

First, Sam posted her recap of Sherlock Holmes last night on HDJM, and if you're wondering if you should read it, I'll help you: yes. You loved her Captain America and Thor recaps, so you'll love this one, too.

ION, yesterday, I drove 40 miles into town to go shopping with my sister and knock off the last of my x-mas purchases. And guess who has two thumbs, a sinus infection and no wallet? THIS GAL. Awesome. Truly a spectacular moment in my life. DERP. We still had lunch, so that was nice. Also, she bought it for me, which is extra nice. HEY I ARE YER BIG SIS THAT IS DUM FANKS. I this many *splay hand*

The Mr. and all of his male family members left this morning for a hunting trip (read: poking sticks into a fire and drinking scotch) until Friday so it's a perfect time to do nothing and let my leg hairs grow. I MEAN GET EVERYTHING READY FOR THE HOLIDAYS.

(You know that really just means watching movies and doing nothing, right? Right.) Jeez, I need breakfast. Come over and make me eggs, pls. I'll repay you in booze and smiles.

ETA OMG, I hate the new comment look. HAAATE. Also, I lost my default of Dystopian, and it wasn't showing up in journal options, and my comments were in my fancy journal look, not the basic Dystopian white background, nice comment titles. SO HERE'S HOW I FIXED IT:

1.) Go here: http://www.livejournal.com/manage/settings/?cat=display ADD TO THE URL: &usescheme=dystopia HIT SAVE AT THE BOTTOM LEFT.

2.) Click on JOURNAL STYLE at the top of your screen.

3.) Click on CUSTOMIZE YOUR THEME

4.) Scroll to "Disable custom comment pages" and select YES. SAVE CHANGES.

Worked for me, I have no idea if it will for you, but it's worth a shot. ETA 2: Now I've lost the ability to have "parent" to threads! So...I can have nice, huge open threads on white, or I can hit parent. FFFFFFUUUUUUUU. I just made a dreamwidth. I'm Stoney1. JUST IN CASE. (Tell me who you are, if you're over there, even if you think I should already know.)

I like booze.
Smiles too.
I'm sorry about your earlier misfortune but a big fat YAY for getting to let the hairs grow.

Don't forget to eat as many Candy Cane Hershey's Kisses as possible...hey, they are only out for a LIMITED TIME, people!

ZOMG they are heaven in foil! White chocolate mint kisses with little crunchy red and white nonpareils in them. Run to the store and stock up now...every ounce I gain over they holidays is their fault.

I am on Dreamwidth as well, but I haven't really done much with it, as I am not tech proficient and no one else seems to post over there much. My username over there is luvxander, obvs! and I have already done the adding thing on you.

I don't want to have to make a NEW PLACE. Pah. I think I can cross post? So that I don't have to change things? I think I can add DW to my eamagic client so then I really don't have to do much extra, because I am lazy as all hale.

Dec. 21st, 2011 06:20 pm (UTC)
LOL!! I know the feeling. That's another reason I don't really do much over there. I go over every once in a blue moon and import my LJ to it. I haven't figured out the crossposting thing yet.

I don't really want a new place either for I am old and set in my ways. GET OFF MY LAWN, YOU DAMN WHIPPERSNAPPERS!!!!!!

Not to mention the fact that I have like, 3 or 4 RL friends and everyone else I know and like/tolerate are all on LJ!

P.S. I need icons...where do you get your nifty and purdy icons?
stoney321
Dec. 21st, 2011 06:49 pm (UTC)
If you check out my user icons, I keep the journals that I got them in the descriptions of every one, like [by iconominon] etc.

*shakes cane*

I don't understaaaaaaaaaaaaand the LJ changes. I just don't. I don't know why when I'm here in your LJ I can have my nice scrolling list of icons, but my default is now ugly, impossible to use on my phone, and beyond impossible to pick an icon when sorted by picture based on upload date.

I think I'm going to have to change my LJ style if they don't reverse some of these changes.

I do have a DW (flaming_muse, I believe), but I'd be more likely to leave fandom than leave LJ.
stoney321
Dec. 21st, 2011 06:48 pm (UTC)
And you can't pick icons if you reply to an anon comment, which is cruddy, and no more subject headings for comments? Talk about messing up people's RPG journals!!

I would be wary of changing your styles - I had to dig around to find how to get Dystopia back (for when I'm commenting) but ugh.

I can't ever see me leaving LJ, but cross posting might be an option if people bug out over there. I've been here too long and am permanent, in every sense of the word. =/

Part of the reason I picked the style that I did for my LJ on its last redesign is that I could force it not to use the style on my entries, because it makes reading them so much more difficult because of how narrow it is. Yours is very readable for me, but mine is not. So if the default page is unusable for me then I have to change styles entirely.

I hate redesigning my LJ. It's not that I do anything fancy, but how it looks is very important to me in terms of how I can read the damn thing.

Cross-posting is a good option for people who aren't me. ;)

Hopefully they'll do what they usually do, which is put it back after enough complaints have been lodged. I do NOT want to move anywhere else, UGH, too many social sites to keep up with as it is. Blah.

...Yeah, no me gusta the new comment layout, or the fact that I have to load all of my icons to pick one. I mean, easy peasy for those of us who only have six, but for the rest of y'all you PAY for your lj 'extras'? Yowza. *sulks*

I'm cuspofqueens at dee-double-ewe, you should see me pop up as one of the people already subscribing to you. <3

I wish I could come have Christmas at your house. I'm not atheist, but I'm not Christian either, this holiday really does nothing for me except give me a reason to be grumpy every year. *sulks some more*
stoney321
Dec. 21st, 2011 08:00 pm (UTC)
I'm not seeing the "load all my icons" things, I still have the drop down box with the names. maybe it's the layout I have? But that would SUCK. (Oh, or maybe it's because I have a permanent account?)

SWEET.

I just like fudge, pistachio cookies, big meals and twinkle lights. That's our holiday. And lots and lots of wine. YAY!

I'm batch three into a five batch holiday baking spree. We're going down to the Valley to visit my grandparents and every single extended family member living (joy. rapture.), and my plan is to shove cookies at them to take the pressure off of being social.

I love to bake, so there's that. There's also a couple of gallons of Maker's Mark coming down with us, if my mother expects me to be in any kind of a social mood at all this weekend. You keep the wine, I'll take the whiskey. *shameless*

You know you can import all of your entries and tags and everything to DW, right? Only cause I know you're saying you won't move if you don't have to - you can import everything and then if/when you start to crosspost it'll be easier to keep organized. Just saying.

I'm fish_with_feet over there, figured I might start thinking about switching things over if LJ continues to make me unhappy.

I'm contemplating posting at DW only and xposting to here from now on. I want to keep my DW updated in case there *is* a mass exodus when the 'fix' the S2 styles, as well.

Jayzus, lj, stop fucking up!

I'm tabaqui over there, too, so i'll go add you....:)

That's what I've been doing for ages - crossposting from DW. It's a doddle and I've only had problems on about a half dozen occasions usually when LJ is suffering a DDOS attack (understandably)! *G*

I feel safer having a presence on both sites - if one is down I can usually access the other. Tho' I admit this final LJ shennanigans does mean I'm lapsing back to a free account there and just paying for my DW one.

Dec. 21st, 2011 11:40 pm (UTC)
Yeah, the money thing is a consideration, too, but if all my comms aren't over at DW, then i'll still be over *here* a lot.......

I got really excited that it was the new Sherlock show but alas

Also the comment pages are fucking HIDEOUS

Ugh, all I know is on any comm/LJ in S1, I can't even comment or load my icons probably because I have so many script/cookie blockers on firefox. Which shouldn't hinder commenting, but well, the update sucks.
cdvla313
Dec. 22nd, 2011 05:36 am (UTC)
Oh, and I'm cdvla313 over on DW also, so if you see me there it's me, not a doppelganger.

Dec. 22nd, 2011 03:28 pm (UTC)
And I'm finding that comments are nesting in Google now, because the subject headers are gone. WTF LJ. UGH. It'll be fixed by hook or by crook, I imagine, but...

(And I am getting SO EXCITED for Sleep No More! I can't wait to do a big write up for HDJM, not that they need the publicity, they're the talk of the town, but that I'm just excited for it.)

Dec. 22nd, 2011 04:29 pm (UTC)
Hee, I'm excited for you to come see it! Remind me to give you the non-spoilery tutorial before you come. And we will always take free publicity. lol.
stoney321
Dec. 22nd, 2011 04:42 pm (UTC)
I will! I'm bringing a friend to the show with me, and we plan on hanging out at the bar afterward to have Deep Thoughts about how awesome it will be. :D

At first I didn't see any change and I was like either I'm blind or stupid and I'm generally not a blind person to website changes soo.. someone directed me to the "news" account and to read the comments and to try and comment in the post about the 88th update. Seriously.

What in the hell is LJ doing? Le sigh. I mean.. at least they're not mass shutting down accounts again, but jeez.
stoney321
Dec. 22nd, 2011 03:26 pm (UTC)
Isn't it STOOPID? I'm fairly sure they'll either revert it back like they've always done, or some smart tech-fangirl will great a fix and we'll all go on our merry way.

BAH.
coffeeanddarren
Dec. 22nd, 2011 10:09 pm (UTC)
I think we'll have to rely on that smart tech-fangirl idea before LJ switches it back.. they keep saying "we are seeing your comments and problems" but I doubt they'll do anything so quickly. meh. I'm not even sure what problem they THOUGHT they fixed lol

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
