AKICILJ? [May. 22nd, 2008|08:41 pm]

Out of curiousity, can any LJ-gurus tell me how (and with which styles) one can make LJ display its tags (or categories) in an indented list, like the tags page for torch_wood or the sidebar on hp_essays?

Thanks.

LJ == Lame Jokes? [Feb. 23rd, 2008|10:25 am]
Cheshyre
According to the_lj_herald (link), LJ has added several new virtual gifts: "Ban Me" Sign, "De-Friend Me" Sign, "Kick Me" Sign and "Troll Me" Sign
I suspect these are intended for April Fool's Day, but given the site's penchant for drama they could also potentially turn nasty -- particularly since v-gifts can be sent anonymously.

You can disable receipt of virtual gifts on your settings page.

Icon loading issues? [Dec. 19th, 2007|10:05 pm]

Anybody else experiencing problems with LJ where no userpics load?

Or is it just something with my settings?

Just realized while filling this out that I created my LJ 6 years and 3 days ago. How time flies...

Unfortunately, I don't watch Supernatural, so am unlikely to write fic about it.
autographedcat, is there anything you wanted to tell me? :)

LJ Herald - Sponsored Content Change [Aug. 5th, 2007|07:15 pm]
Cheshyre
BTW, are you reading the_lj_herald? It posts regular digests with information compiled from news, lj_biz along with other announcements and updates. One-stop-summation for the latest info about LJ.

At any rate, I thought you paid & permanent users would appreciate being informed of this:
Sponsored 'content', which used to be assimilated to advertising, no longer is. Consequently, it is and will be shown to all users, including Paid and Permanent users. (Source)
Further explanations in the comments:
According to LiveJournal officials, "Sponsorship is different from ads. [...] Paid users may see sponsored mood themes, journal themes or other content if they're viewing the journal of a user who has chosen to use one of the sponsored features."
and

If they choose to do so, users can use Diet Pepsi MAX sponsored styles and a Diet Pepsi MAX sponsored mood theme. LiveJournal used to say that "sponsored 'whatever' [were] ads". Now they seem to think that "sponsorship is different from ads". So, if a Paid or a Permanent user has a friend who has chosen to use the Diet Pepsi MAX mood theme, they will see Diet Pepsi MAX mood icons on their friends page or on this person's layout. If they go to the journal of a user who is using a Diet Pepsi MAX layout, they will see the Diet Pepsi MAX layout just like any other user would.

Can somebody explain this meme to me?

{img alt="Mojo" src="http://ljmojo.whitehat.net.nz/graphs/8f92ec47feb12f8f3d11c37f3389eae38ba2a7fb/7958.png" height="306" width="291" />
Find my LJ Mojo!

All it asked was who on my flist I have dated, and it returned the following stats:

friendly: 100%
promiscuous: 9%
random: 44%
wise: 100%
cool: 100%
hard to get: 0%

Presumably, promiscuous is based on the number of people on my flist I've dated.
There's probably something based on how many of those I've dated are mutual friends (in my case, all of them). But what the heck are the rest supposed to mean?

Four Questions? (third year) [Mar. 13th, 2007|10:35 am]
Cheshyre

crossposted from riba_rambles

Two years ago I had an idea...

My First Four Questions bib

Part of the Passover ritual involves the youngest person at the seder asking Four Questions, which is supposed to instigate the retelling of the Passover story. [For more information on this, see JewFaq.]

In too many families, the actual youngest participant is too young to actually recite the Questions. Usually, in these situations, the onus falls upon the youngest child actually articulate, but what if there were another way?

With this in mind, I've created a bib with the words written upon it. When it's the baby's turn in the spotlight, somebody can just hold the kid up for everybody to read!

Problem solved! And here's my CafePress shop!!!

Baby bibs for everyone!

And, since it's no more trouble for me, I've created infant/toddler t-shirts and one-pieces, although given it's really only for two days of the year and kids grow so fast, the bib is probably the most practical.

Since last year, CafePress has added colors, so the shirts and onesies are available in pink, blue, or yellow, for those who prefer pastels.

Anyways, if you know anybody expecting a small child at the seder, send 'em my way.

Help planning an April Fools prank [Feb. 28th, 2007|12:58 pm]
Cheshyre
I'm posting this here rather than riba_rambles to avoid cluing in coworkers or superiors.*

Over a year ago, my department moved into a new building.
The walls are rather bare.
There's been ongoing discussion about putting up some artwork, but so far nothing has come of it.

I had the brilliant idea that for April Fools' Day, I should just break the logjam and hang some art in the public areas: dogs playing poker, sad-eyed clowns, bullfighters, velvet Elvis, that kind of thing**...

Catch is, I would consider anything I buy for this purpose to be disposable.
I don't want to spend a lot of money on this

So, any suggestions of the cheapest possible means of getting this kind of 2D kitsch?
Figure I'm looking for at 3 - 6 posters, and would like to keep expenses under $20.


Thanks in advance.

_____
*I know at least one coworker reads this LJ. Please don't tell; I'd like to preserve the surprise. Though if you'd like to help, whether in putting up posters or with preservation advice to avoid getting in trouble, I'd appreciate it.
**Nothing offensive in any sense but aesthetically -- which means no cheesecake pinups. This is a place of business, and not one I'm anxious to leave.
