I, like everyone, despaired when I saw what was going to happen to my beloved comment function. There does appear to be hope on the horizon.

From Mark:

Note: The comment page redesign does not affect customized comment pages in S2, which can be enabled or disabled at http://www.livejournal.com/customize/options.bml. We are also planning to create a new S2 commenting style which will appear & function in the same way as the old site scheme commenting page to be included in the near future.

So, it sucks that they didn't decide to put the release back until they did this, but at least they've seen the need (finally) and are going to do something about it.

ETA: Oh, well. Hell.

Okay. For those of you who use multiple LJs (and there are few of you who'd be reading this who don't), take a gander at this little add-on.


CookiePie, which was recently updated to support the current version of Firefox, allows multiple cookie sessions within one browser. This means that it works so that you can have multiple gmail accounts open or multiple LJ logins open.

Yes, this works with LJLogin with one small bug: If you change usernames while in a tab with CookiePie turned on, it'll do funny things, but if you change usernames while in another tab, all of the active tabs will stay in their various usernames.

It also doesn't hold the sessions during a reboot with the Session Manager add-on, although it's possible other session managers might work.

Mainly, in TR, I can see this being useful during parties where there are handfuls of characters going to different people and dozens of threads in a short space of time.

See my computer.

See me put my computer into hibernate on my desk for the night.

See me wake up to my computer OUT of hibernate.

See me check the time when AIM logged on and find it popped out of hibernate about an hour after I went to bed.


...see me kill my computer.

So, I'm officially not going to have a computer until at least Tuesday, but more likely Wednesday. And that's providing that the parts they're sending are actually the parts that are broken. At the moment, I'm thinking that it's the motherboard. One of the last times we managed to get it to boot at all, there were graphical artifacts that were screwing up the screen.

That's what they told me was one of the potential symptoms of a dead motherboard. You know, the last time we got this replaced. What was it, a month ago?

So, for the time being, I'm only going to be at a computer when I can steal my desktop back or when I'm at school in between classes.


This makes me wish that I'd never lent out my desktop. I could just set it up in the sewing room and everything would be good.
zan: (Basic: Studying)
So, status on life:

2 tests down and I actually feel like I did okay on them. Both of them were Lit and I actually felt sort of prepared for them before going in. This is good.

1 test to go, in Psychology, and it's the test that I don't feel prepared AT ALL for, so I'm panicking a little and I'm going to be spending the next two days studying my ass off.

My computer has officially crapped out on me. Well, not the computer and everything inside, but the cover hinge has gone again, which means that I think I'm going to put in a call TONIGHT instead of tomorrow, just to make sure they can be here by Friday. I really, really want my laptop fixed and in working order before the holidays begin. Mostly because I know I won't have time once they're over because of school starting back up.

Uhh, tomorrow I'm going to be doing a rewrite of Kon's app to send in to Squot for a final beta and it should be out to the mods by the end of the weekend, I think. And then I crash and crash hard. The day after my tests end (Friday, unless I'm really lazy), expect to not see me around at all. I'm going to be hiding with the DS and library books and will just be taking a much needed sanity break.

So. I went to stretch out on my stomach on the bed and watch Crusoe. I had to move the screen a little because it was at the angle for sitting on the bed and not lying on the bed. Seems simple, right? Except when I moved the monitor, I heard this horrible soft cracking sound. I turn on the light and lo and behold....

I'm furious. I mean, really furious. Last time I could say for sure that it was my fault. Now? It's just cracking.

Needless to say, the next time I'm buying a computer, I'm not buying Dell. Sure, there support is great and the in-home service is really nice, but what's not nice is having them repair it every few months. At least it's an excuse to call them about the dead pixels in my screen.

I really, really am not getting another Dell.

Go there. Really. You want to. It's hilarious.

Why in the hell am I awake? My sleep schedule for most of the summer has be up until after sunrise. Nothing new there. I'm a night owl. But then, about a week ago, I think my body kicked over into 'school' mode, so it swapped, making me exhausted by about 7 and waking me up at 5am. Evil, but doable.

Tonight, I was up until a somewhat more reasonable hour of 10pm, sadly missing [livejournal.com profile] frogmajick come back from the store. And now? I am up at 2:30am.

What. The. Fuck.

In other news, my computer might have a problem with its fan. [livejournal.com profile] bugly42 and I have the same computer, but when I play Diablo 2 (or any game), the system gets really hot. I figured that the computer was just working overtime and that it was normal. Not so. [livejournal.com profile] bugly42's machine is significantly cooler than mine is, even when she's been playing the game longer.

Time for a call in to tech support tomorrow. Today. Whatever.

And now I attempt to go back to sleep.

ETA: And then I was woken up at 4:30 because I forgot to do the trash. And [livejournal.com profile] bugly42 hadn't done her half. What a great way to start the day. Of course, I didn't wake up for another hour after that, but...

Okay, seriously, this is getting ridiculous. The internet is down again. I'm at school. School that doesn't start for another week and a half. Because it has wireless. Seriously, this is not fair. I just want to stab my internet and make it work properly.

On the other hand, now I'm downloading Chuck at many times the speed I get at home, so there are at least some benefits.

I will, of course, be regretting that statement when I get home and there's still no internet, but at least I'll have something to watch when that happens.
zan: (Basic: Smash Computer)
So. This is ridiculous. Our internet died last night around 8:30. Came back around 1:30 or so in the morning. I remember this because I ended up screaming at [livejournal.com profile] frogmajick. It was fine after that. Or so I thought. It died again at 10am. It's now 5:30pm and it still isn't up. I'm at the local used bookstore. This is silly. I want internet

I owe tags.

I actually want to do those tags.

I want to download CHUCK, god damn it.

Really, is it too much to ask that I have internet during a plot?

Okay. So. I'm here in the computer lab at school because I have a lab to finish for Physics. I've been playing my iPod all morning (not at all different from normal). I looked at it before Physics class and notice that the charge is down dramatically from what I'm used to. That's the first clue that something's wrong.

Then, I get to the computer lab and plug my headphones in and play for a little while. Everything's fine. For about ten minutes. Then the sound dies. I think great. The thing's dead and I bring it out to check the charge. It's all the way down. Except for one small problem. The light won't go off.

ETA: And now there's an error message whenever I try to play my iPod. And this little symbol.

I really hope that it's just a minor issue and not anything serious. Although I may be in luck, because the warranty lasts another two months. Unless they need proof of purchase, in which case I need to hunt around and figure out what I did with it.

...can I say that I really, really want this drive? Seriously. It would take even me a while to fill it up.

Also, I'm having fun with this clipmarks thing.
