marcmagus: Me playing cribbage in regency attire (Default)
Thursday, February 11th, 2010 10:30 am

[Written 2010-02-04, but delayed due to difficulty with jlj; sorry for the resulting late warning.]

I have two events that are important to me on the same weekend. I hate when that happens. This year:

NonCon is 2010-02-19/2010-02-21.

The Regency Tea Dance in Boston is 2010-02-21. [Note the new location convenient to the red line]

I haven't decided what I'm going to do about this, although I think I'm leaning toward the dance.

In any case, consider this a reminder to those of you interested in either event that they'll be occurring.

It turns out there's a bug in jlj, the program I use to compose messages in my favorite editor and submit them to LiveJournal and DreamWidth. I've finally tracked it down and written a quick fix. I feel slightly dirty, but the proper fix requires ripping out the existing band-aid on a band-aid and going back and fixing the underlying problem, which is a bit more effort than I want to go to for someone else's code at this time, as there could well be unexpected consequences.

The problem was that if you had written a post to go to a server other than LiveJournal, and you had it in your queue but it failed to post for some reason, then when you ran jlj -f to flush the queue it would attempt to log in to LiveJournal using the credentials for whatever site you had intended to post to. The symptom looked something like this:

[magus@cabinet ~]$ jlj -f
