  • The site may occasionally be slow to respond or have trouble connecting as we tune servers and databases, or you may receive Gateway Timeout errors.

  • Comment notification emails may be delayed due to database load.

  • Inbound email (post-by-email and comment-by-email) may be delayed for a bit while your outgoing mail server catches up with the switch.

  • Email sent to your username@dreamwidth.org address may be more likely to be marked as spam, due to our mail server changing its IP address.

  • The site search database may be missing entries and comments and will catch up over the next few days, as database load allows. Entries and comments posted since the site came back up will be added to the index as they're posted.

  • Logging into other sites using your Dreamwidth OpenID is working again! Yay!

  • Loading embedded content over secure connections should be fixed!

  • There is a known problem with trying to rearrange elements on the Beta Update page because a script element isn't loading properly. We'll try to get that fixed today.


Let us know if you see anything else odd with the site that isn't listed here!

RECCER'S NOTES: This is poignat and heartbreaking and sweet. Love their interactions, and how Walt Disney reacts to the wizarding world. Love the celebrations of two kinds of magic.

We have now cut over to our new hardware! If you can see this, the site should be working for you.

Things you don't need to tell us about:

* The site may look a little weird or naked for a while as your computer/network/ISP/etc catches up with the switch.
* Comment notification emails should be going out properly, but inbound email (post-by-email and comment-by-email) may be delayed for a bit while your outgoing mail server catches up with the switch.
* The site search database is a few days out of date (missing entries from the past two days) and will catch up over the next few days. Entries and comments posted since the site came back up will be added to the index when they're posted.

Known issues:

* Accessing the site will be slow for a while as the caches warm back up, and you may receive Gateway Timeout errors.
* Due to the occasional database connection problem due to high load and site slowness earlier, some comments did not generate emailed notifications and those notifications can't be re-sent. New comments made since we resolved the DB problems are generating email notifications, but slowly (due to the general database slowness).
* Logging in to other sites using your Dreamwidth OpenID is broken (& we'll fix it as soon as we can!)

Let us know if you see anything else weird!

We are now within our maintenance window for today. The site will go into read-only mode when we're ready to begin the maintenance, and will be unavailable for at least most of the morning. Watch our Twitter status account for updates!

I'm sneaking this in as it's still Nov 30th somewhere on the planet! :)

Fandom: Game of Thrones
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Daenerys
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: digital painting
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: Mehdic on DA
Why this piece is awesome: A gorgeous portrait of Daenerys in regal finery, on the iron throne. The likeness is amazing and I love her complicated expression and that she looks so strong here, as many portraits just show her as pretty. She's very much a queen, here.

November update; December goals

Days written: 28/30
Words written: 9,963
Words to date in 2016: 101,395 (that's right -- I finally broke 100k)
Words of fic written: 5,702
Stories worked on: Three
Stories posted: One new, several crossposts

Charts are surprised we did this well, really )

Specific goals:

1. Write at least ten minutes every day. Almost. Considering the clusterfuck that was this November, I am reasonably proud that I only missed two days, and both were over Thanksgiving weekend.

2. Post publicly to DW every day. Success! (Or it will be, once I get this post finished.)

3. Finish and post Critical Role reverse bang story (due November 16th). Also a success.

4. Send Wardens of Ivalice 2 to beta. On Monday! \o/

5. Archive outstanding flashfic to AO3. For real this time. There were only three stories, all from a 15 characters meme I did over the summer. In case you missed it, they're all linked here.

Seriously, I feel lucky that I got even halfway to any of my goals, given November 2016. 2016, man. I know it's just a date on a calendar, and that there's no reason to think 2017 will be any better, but I'm still looking forward to turning that particular page. If you managed to win NaNo this year, I am seriously in awe.

Anyway, December goals:

1. Write at least six days per week except while traveling (the last week of the month). December is a busy month, not even counting my upcoming trip, so this is a little ambitious, but I'd like to try.

2. Finish and post Wardens of Ivalice Part 2 before I leave on 12/27.

3. Finish and submit story for Winter's Crest Gifts, also before 12/27 (due on 12/31).

4. Write and post at least two substantial articles for my journal and/or [community profile] ladybusiness.

Reminder: Downtime tomorrow

A reminder: the site will be down/in read-only mode tomorrow for server maintenance for at least a little while. (Some people may also have trouble accessing the site even after it comes back up, depending on your network/computer/ISP settings.) We're beginning the maintenance window at 10AM EST/7AM PST/11PM UTC, and to be on the safe side, we're setting a window of 8 hours for possible downtime. It probably won't take that long, but there's also a (very small) chance it may take longer! We'll keep you updated on any changes with our off-site status Twitter account.

Fandom: Harry Potter
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Luna Lovegood (Gen)
Content Notes/Warnings: None.
Medium: Digital drawing
Artist Website/Gallery: anastasiamantihora at deviantart
Why this piece is awesome: While I enjoy the delicate lines and hints of shading, it's the premise of this artwork that I like most. Luna's looking so calmly at the postal owls, wondering which one will take her letter. The owls are either refusing to look or looking horrified. The little "no no no" written in around the perches cracks me up every time.

As we prep for tomorrow's server maintenance, the site may look weird or 'naked' (no styling, images not loading, etc) on and off over the next hour or so. If you notice it, there's no need to report it: if it happens, we did it on purpose.

Alexandrite by searoth (SFW)

Fandom: Steven Universe
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Alexandrite
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: digital painting
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: searoth on DeviantArt

Why this piece is awesome: One of the commenters on DeviantArt said "this image is fearfully and wonderfully wrought," and that about sums it up. The perspective — looking straight into Alexandrite's fanged mouth, framed by her many hands — emphasizes the monstrous, unsettling qualities of this character. I also love the coloring, which is interestingly textured.
