bowl_of_glow: (Sherlock | England would fall)
Read Part I


Part II


“We have a client,” Sherlock announced a few weeks later. John looked up from his laptop as Sherlock, who had been standing in front of the window playing a melancholy piece on his violin, sprang away and went to put his violin in its case.

“A client?” John repeated dumbly, just as their doorbell rang. Sherlock grinned at him excitedly.

“Mrs Hudson is out” Sherlock said. “Let her in, please.”

It was a very good thing that a client had turned up on their doorstep, because Sherlock had been moaning about the lack of interesting cases for almost two weeks now. Of course, John still had to hope this case would prove interesting enough for Sherlock to accept, since Sherlock didn’t seem familiar with the saying about beggars and choosers and, even when extremely bored, had turned away clients he didn’t think worthy of his attention.

The client waiting on the pavement in front of 221 was a red-haired woman in her thirties. John invited her in, and she smiled shyly when he introduced himself. “Oh, yes,” she told John. “I read your blog.”

Summary: There were werewolves in London. John had no idea how many, but he knew they were there. People walked past them during the day, utterly oblivious. Perhaps some of them were living in his very building, and he didn’t know.

She's watched him fuck her like this dozens of times. Sometimes sitting back with a glass of wine, and merely watching, other times berating Sherlock for his technique and threatening him with the riding crop.

So, after nearly a decade at this site, LJ finally does something that makes me actually rage. No popcorn and laughing as the masses storm to news posts complaining, this time I'm actually worried.

A while back I was invited to help out with BETA testing new LJ services (I got this invite via [livejournal.com profile] lj_releases).

They have just announced BETA testing of a new friendslist.

LJ is planning on redoing everyone's friendslists in the style of the new comment page and update page. They want to copy tumblr and make your friendslist into a dashboard-like system page (infinite scrolling and all). It's also been renamed to "feed" (this I don't mind too much, though). In fact the whole dashboard idea with infinite scrolling wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for the fact that everyone will be locked to one specific layout. The system style comment pages are bad enough, but now I'll have to strain my eyes reading my flist? That defeats the purpose of this entire site. The font, use of whitespace, oversized boxes and UI elements ... all contribute to making the page difficult to read, on a site where all you do is read. Aaaah. Even just the possibility of adjusting the font (style and size) would make this suggestion easier to swallow, but it's still not something I'd want for my journal. It would not improve my LJ experience in any way (in fact it would most likely make my daily LJ activities more time consuming).

Now, I wasn't able to make the BETA page display my own friendslist, so I apologise to the random users who are featured in the screenshot, but to give everyone an idea, the below image shows you what your friendslist probably will look like in a couple of months.


(Click for big)


I never switched over from Dystopia, so that adds to the weirdness. You're going to have to picture this with the standard LiveJournal drop down navigation + no blue sidebar to the left. Click the screenshots for bigger versions.

Top of page with links to journal, archive, profile


Example of text heavy post as displayed on friendslist


New buttons to the right replace the navigation strip. One tab for filters


One tab for Archive/Calendar, you can filter your feed to display posts from one specific date. These buttons follow along as you scroll down the page (infinite scrolling).



All friendslists will look the same.

Snippet from the locked post at [livejournal.com profile] lj_releases:
The friends page has been redesigned as a system page for all users, and is now available for Beta testers. There is a link at the top of your friends page allowing you to switch between the new and old versions, and will later go into public beta testing. You can switch back and forth between both versions throughout beta testing.

PUBLIC POST AT [livejournal.com profile] lj_releases ABOUT THE NEW FRIENDSLIST: http://lj-releases.livejournal.com/79480.html.

You can also see the proposed changes for yourself by enabling the BETA on your own journal (instructions from [livejournal.com profile] ruljautonews):
It's trivially easy to test beta features.
1) Go to [livejournal.com profile] lj_ru_beta and request to join.
2) Wait to get confirmation that you've been accepted into the community (this could take a few hours.)
3) Go to this page and choose Go To under Beta.
4) That's it, you're now testing the beta release. All site-scheme pages should now display a big "BETA BETA BETA BETA BETA BETA" in yellow letters across the top.
5) You could make comments in the [livejournal.com profile] lj_ru_beta post, but if you do please keep this in mind: the majority of commenters there don't speak English and if they do it's not their primary language. Machine translation of Russian is lousy. "My hovercraft is full of eels" lousy. While you can engage in basic dialogue and get a feel for what the other person is saying, don't get too hung up on anyone's phrasing.

You can easily switch back to the old version.

Make sure you let LJ know what you think of these proposed changes, I can't be the only one who thinks this is a horrible idea.

ETA: It's nice to see that I'm not the only one worried about the proposed changes, but please direct your feedback through the proper channels. This is a private journal, I have no affiliation with LJ. Please also be respectful when addressing the LJ staff. They are just doing their jobs. Thanks!

bowl_of_glow: (BBC Sherlock - Sally)
Pairing: Joan Watson/Sherlock Holmes
Genre: Genderswap, femslash
Length: 5118 words - Complete.

Summary: Sherlock isn’t very good at relationships, she has never even tried. She’s always assumed she’d never be the kind of woman to tie herself to another person – certainly never a lover, she barely has any friends. Her opinion doesn’t change when she meets Joan, which only goes to show that one can be an excellent consulting detective and still miss a few clues.

Author's Note: English isn't my first language, feel free to point out typos and mistakes.

So I have an exam tomorrow, and I haven't studied much these days.
But I unlocked four new levels of Angry Birds and I'm somewhat proud of myself.

And no, I really have nothing better to do tonight.

(Also, Dress to Kill is brilliant and awesome and you should watch it if you haven't).

...is YouTube activly trying to block downloads or something?
Because seriously, I've tried like 8 different sites and nothing works, and it's too suspicious to be a coincidence.

ETA - WAIT DID THEY DISABLE THE OLD EMBED CODE?

ETA(AGAIN) - Oh, apparently not. Just the one video I wanted to embed. Fine.
