Oh man, I had Pokemon Go running while I was down in Indiana, and I scored an Up-Grade from one of the two pokestops between the train station and the Dunes. Apparently the only thing the Up-Grade works on is a Porygon, but I only have one Porygon and I don’t know if I want to evolve it…

DECISIONS. Spark guide my hand. 

(Spark says “You have three Porygon candy. If you’re gonna upgrade it you’re gonna have to walk like a billion miles first. Just FYI.”)

Eames loses Arthur sometimes. He drops off the face of the planet for weeks at the time, no whisper of a job, no tales of his location. No one knows where he goes, including Eames.

Coming back from an extended beer run to Marin County (you know where to look at evidence) I'm popping in just to note that the Supergirl showrunners totally read my fanfiction:

The scene, incidentally spoilery for the beginning of 2x18 ''Ace Reporter'' )

Sure, I'm the only person to notice...but still filled with the warm glow of knowing that my Karacterization was on point there.

Because I missed this when it was first going around. For all its problems, if not for lj, I wouldn't have you guys. Plus, wow, that's a lot of posts! :)

Happy Belated Birthday, LJ!

impoverished blueberry farmers

I had a dream with a flashback in it!

It starts out on a train, and Diego Luna comes up to me (I know right) and he says, "You're so pretty. Were you in the Christmas play?" And I ask, "What was the name of it?" And he tells me, and I say no. And he's all, "Are you sure?" And he's playful and sweet and he reaches out a finger like he might teasingly poke me in the stomach, and I push his hand away and say, "I'm not interested."

A few seats ahead of me, my mother turns around, ready to disapprove of my lack of interest in romantic pursuits or whatever it is mothers are concerned about, and I say, "I said no."

Turning Diego Luna away made no sense to me, the dreamer, because Diego Luna being cute! But in real life, nothing will make me suspicious faster than calling me pretty, so I felt like maybe I understood at least part of it.

Then there was some stuff with a law enforcement officer tied to a pole in the middle of a dusty compound populated with girls wearing bikinis and diaphanous wraps. And I was there to witness his sacrifice or something?? And there I met a tall, heavy-set Hispanic or Native American girl—not in a bikini—who would only look like me if you'd recently been struck on the head, and I asked her if she'd been in the Christmas play. I guess I was trying to find whoever it was Diego Luna thought I was.

Then the flashback!

Diego Luna and I came from the same small town! Where we grew blueberries! But the crops had died, and the blueberry bushes were growing back in straggly vines with thick, black, chitinous bark, and that was no good because the berries couldn't sprout through the bark.

I touched one of the plants, and the few berries that were there were bruised and deformed, and my hands turned dark with their juice. Diego Luna showed up at the end of the row, and I went to him and hugged him, the way you do when your hands are dirty, wrapping my arms around him and pressing the back of my hands to his shoulders, my fingers curled inward, and I told him, "We'll figure this out."

And then I left. To figure things out at college maybe? And he stayed there, to figure things out on the ground. And I can only assume it created a rift between us, and that's why I pretended not to know him on the train.

And that's my impoverished blueberry farmer dream, starring Diego Luna.

Hey, guys, if anyone had problems accessing the mp4 file to download it the last few minutes, I apologize. That was totally my fault.

I wasn't happy with the resolution of either of the files I uploaded earlier but, at the time, that was the highest resolution avi or mp4 files I could find on any of the download sites. I haven't been able to find a better copy of the avi file but I was able to find a nicer copy of the mp4 so I swapped it out with the earlier file just a bit ago. It has a much cleaner, sharper picture than the earlier mp4 file so you might want to re-download it.

Still no luck on a nicer avi file so I've added a 720p mkv copy to the download list. It's a pretty, high res version of the new episode so it's there if you'd like to have it.

I know that this is me being picky but I always want to share the nicest copies of the weekly episodes with you that I can. Here's the links to the files:

Click me! )

Anyway, enjoy and I'll, hopefully, see you guys tomorrow. :)

*hugs*

It really didn't warrant its own post, but post-swim I made some tiny blue corn masa griddle cakes (somewhere between tortillas and unfilled gorditas or tlacoyos) sprinkled sea salt across them; roasted fresh rockfish with ancho chili and lemon in the same pan; ground two carrots into a fresh salad...and gobbled it all up. I love twenty-minute meals.

So the Supergirl showrunners did remember this series is about Kara Danvers aka Kara Zor-El, her beliefs and values! Yay. Supergirl 2x18  )

Code push scheduled for Sunday night

  • Apr. 27th, 2017 at 3:03 PM
We are planning to do a code push late this weekend, at approximately 8pm PDT / 11pm EDT / 3am UTC on Sunday, Apr 30 (or May 1 for you transatlantic types.).

I don't have a list of changes for you yet, but most will fall into the following categories: things users have complained about to support volunteers, things support volunteers have complained about to developers, things [staff profile] denise has complained about not working the way she expects them to (and as we all know, The Boss is Always Right), and things that were printing warnings over and over in the production server logs, making it hard to spot when less frequent, more urgent errors were being printed. Oh, and also all the unused code I ripped out at the roots, which if you notice that, I did it wrong.

To sum up: we are rolling out a bunch of requested changes, so thank you all for your feedback!

If you're new to Dreamwidth and interested in tracking our development process, our commit logs are published to [site community profile] changelog and [community profile] changelog_digest, and every month or so, one of our volunteers will translate those often-cryptic entries into witty, informative code tours! The most recent one was published on April 1, so we're about due for a new one. Hint, hint.

We'll update here again to let you know when the code push is imminent!

Cookbook experience

Science and History

monanotlisa: (richter abstract - duh)
So last Saturday was a good one: We joined the San Francisco March for Science, only one of several Bay Area Marches for Science reported about in the San Jose Mercury News article linked here -- the paper's count seems off, though. Based on the aerial drone shots and mathematical calculations per the official Facebook page, it was closer to 50,000 in SF alone.

If you are interested in images rather than text, check out the three shots I posted on Instagram -- #1 (fannishly relevant to all fans of the true Captain America), #2 (that captures members of our Berkeley scientist group), and #3 (the most heartening one in many ways, also nerdy).

At night, then, we made it to HAMILTON: second time for me, thanks to an invitation from my wife's family to both the musical and the dinner before. My in-laws are the sweetest and most generous...as well as representative; most of the audience of this musical cast only with actors of color were wealthy White-looking people. (Sally has written a HAMILTON review, plus her tag has more entries.)
