Poor Mercurial. It got a (virtual) shoe thrown at it in a fit of frustration while I was trying to generate a patch. thwarted by version control! )

Also in this week: first-times in a couple of things!

1. I ordered books online for the first time! hooray for free shipping! )

2. I submitted my first Dreamwidth patch! hooray for new layouts! )

misc )

That's it!

. . . It actually worked! \o/

I have managed to convert a style to s2 (yay) and now it is up on my Dreamhack as an "official" style. \o/ I was pretty sure I was going to have to hassle both #dw_styles and #dw_kindergarten to make things work, but I didn't have to, and I'm kinda staring at this whole thing feeling stunned.

Once the conversion was done, I ended up trying to puzzle things in the wiki. Halfway through I got confused which version was "production" and which was "live" and what actually was being updated where. Which is kind of ironic. I used to do configuration management, once upon a time ago, and one of the things I had to take care of was -- guess -- version control. (I still think rather ruefully about the Old Job when things like this come up.)

It is late and my shoulder hurts. I'm going to bed. Tomorrow I'll have another look at the Customize page -- some of the property descriptions read oddly -- and I'm waiting for some feedback from the layout author . . . and that's it! And a lot of testing, I guess. Lots of it.

Hullo! I am back from internet-less lands! Not that anyone had noticed that I was gone, I suppose, XD. I was at my grandma's for three days, and while internet is accessible using my mobile phone, the phone itself is somewhere at the lower end of the phone spectrum and it is not much fun trying to view even pages made for mobile view using that thing.

But! I am back! And currently on leave, and will only be back at work on Monday.

What I am up to right now: searching for bills and paying for them before someone comes and cuts off the electricity, etc. Which wouldn't be a good thing, considering the whole family is here and everyone will give me disapproving looks if that happens.

Once that is done I'll have to update my Dreamhack and, uh, do stuff. Poor 'hack, left alone for such a long time. Hopefully this time I'll get things done and not lose momentum after a bit. Among things I think I would be able to help with is converting stuff in [site community profile] dreamscapes to S2, but I haven't really attempted that yet, so we'll see how it goes!

Speaking of [site community profile] dreamscapes, I've posted a layout there for comment, but there hasn't been any response -- either it's good enough or no one really wants to bother with it. XD Admittedly it's much easier (and fun, I bet) to check out new colour schemes to existing layouts that go through that hassle of installing and testing a new layout. But, if you're interested, the relevant post is here, and I'm willing to help if you get stuck trying to use it. Both layout and theme layers are public, layerids are 77089 (layout) and 77090 (theme). [personal profile] yati is using the same layout with a different theme, which I haven't submitted.

Aaaand speaking of Dreamwidth, I still have invite codes. (Though I suppose everyone who really wants an account probably already has one.) Ask if you need/want a code!

What I also need to do: compare book prices and get The Unicorn Hunt. The ending of Scales of Gold made me go asffdfghlhl;hh;;khg WHAT? I should have known that was going to happen. Both the ending and me going WHAT? That's Dorothy Dunnett for you. (Seriously, if I had found her books earlier, I bet I would've been more interested in history in general and the Renaissance in particular and would've wanted to get more grounding in the classics than what I had in school. I can't believe I'm looking things up for this lady.)

Maybe a reaction post later. I have notes for this book. Notes.
