We have tickets to see an open air performance of the Carmina Burana in an hour. 10 minutes ago, it went dark outside, 5 minutes ago the storm started and I could hear thunder. One minute ago, the storm turned into something worse.

The hail is predicted to reach 3 centimeters in diameter...

Guess we're staying inside?

38 degrees Celsius outside today. Wow. That, like, never happens in these regions of Germany.

I am so glad we moved to the house in spring. Being able to lie in the shade in my own garden is so much better than sweating in the apartment under the roof for the last five summers. I also did some gardening and grocery shopping, but mostly today was just relaxing and trying to enjoy the sun.

I want to start using this journal again, but I can't continue from where I left off. Too much has changed. The original title of this journal was "Kareila's Bugzilla" and most of the information was directly related to tracking my progress with a ticketing system that we haven't used in over a year.

I considered deleting or hiding all the old entries, but there are some that I think might still provide useful information to other developers or help me refresh my memory about certain ongoing projects. I've only removed the ones that were just me celebrating achievements or venting frustration with code that in most cases I didn't even remember writing.

I still love Dreamwidth and enjoy working on it, although I can't work on it hour after hour, day after day, like I did the first two years I was here. The pace I kept would burn out anyone, and in retrospect, I certainly think that's the best description for what happened to me for a while there. But when I look back at where we started and see how far we've come and how much we've accomplished, I feel like I have a lot to be proud of, both on my own behalf and on behalf of the community.

We struggled when we moved from Mercurial to Git. We struggled again when we lost Bugzilla. I'm sure we'll face more challenges in the future. But I am optimistic, and thankful.

At the end of the day, one thing is the same: I am Karzilla, Destroyer of Bugs. I fight for the users, and my code machete is always close at hand.

I’ve not been about much this month. My apologies for not keeping up with responding to comments and posts. This is because the past few weeks have been a whirlwind of activity. For one thing, we finally got our act together and began work on the house. The first big job that needed doing was the roof.

The roof was a cheap and nasty MDF slate affair. The original tiles that covered the cottage, which would have matched the neighbouring cottages and houses, were lost. The roof had not weathered the years well. Repairs had been bodge jobs, and it leaked, so the walls on the first floor suffered from damp. This meant that we couldn’t plaster or paint them, because they’d be ruined in six months by water damage.

We decided to replace the cheap pseudoslates with the real thing, and to have the front porch and bay window fitted with proper mini-roofs as well. (I think of the bay window roof as a hat.)

The scaffolders arrived at 8 AM on a Monday morning.


The old roof, from the back, post-scaffolding and pre-roofing.

+12 images showing the transformation )

Now that all this is is (almost) done, we can feel confident about redecorating and repairing the interior of the house, as well as repainting the exterior. And once we’ve recovered from paying the bill (yowch), we can think about Phase 2: Converting the conservatory into a livable room.

In conclusion, responsible home ownership is ruddy exhausting. Also, expensive. Also also, why was it so exhausting even though all I did was organising the contractors, make a lot of coffee and answer questions about what I wanted?

At least it looks nice! I think? Reassurance would be most welcome.

Harry Potter reread

In an effort to start reading again, I am once again rereading the Harry Potter series. This must be at least my fifth, maybe even my sixth or seventh time reading them, and I am currently up to Prisoner of Azkaban.

And for the first time, I think, the first few books really annoy me. Not all the time, then I wouldn't continue reading. But still, some of the character decisions that are needed to advance the plot (like Harry not telling the teachers about what Draco said after the first incident in CoS, or not telling Remus about the Grim) rub me wrong. Also, this time it's really obvious to me, more so than usual, just how dangerous things at Hogwarts are without anyone caring about it (the first Quidditch match in PoA taking place in a thunderstorm, only the Prefects guarding the Great Hall later, students having detention in the Forbidden Forrest, etc.). Or, how sometimes, because something needs to be shown, the PoV just changes. There's no way Harry could have heard what Hermione and Ron were talking about during the first Quidditch match in PS, for example. It happens rarely, but it throws me off.

Anyway, looking forward to reading the books I like most afterwards. Because I am one of those (apparently) Rare people whose favorite isn't PoA or CoS. Instead, mine is Half-Blood Prince. If I had to put them into order, mine would be something like :

Half-Blood Prince
Order of the Phoenix
Deathly Hallows
Goblet of Fire
Chamber of Secrets
Prisoner of Azkaban
Philosopher's Stone

Basically, I like the main characters a lot more when they are older, and the one thing putting CoS above PoA is that I really love Harry interacting with Tom Riddle. And there are days I'd probably rank Deathly Hallows above them all. Yes, despite the camping.

How do you rank the Harry Potter books?

Edit : here, have a poll :-)

Summary:

John isn’t scared of Sherlock or of the adults around them. But he is scared of this Message. He is scared he’ll be there, in two years, right next to Sherlock, watching and unable to do a damn thing when he dies.

Because the true Message was, “Don’t expect to make a career out of this interpreter thing. I’ll die in two years.”

For the first time in his life, John wishes he’d never taken the Cassandra Tests.

I've been wanting to do a Dana story for a while now, and lately I've been in a very Night Vale mood. I also wanted to complete something in one day to remind myself I could. So this story was perfect.

Feedback and constructive criticism: better than staving off spiderwolves.

The us supreme court decision on marriage! omg. omg. I've only read snippets but the ones I've seen have made me tear up with how strong and definite they are. No wishy-washy "well there's technically no legal reason we couldn't..." but just outright saying that this is the right way to treat people. Empathy? Love? Fuck yeah.

I've seen so much happiness today, feel warm and mushy.

The ones where it's like "two 80-year-olds who have been together x years" make me tear up the most because asdfhfhfh to have been denied that for so long but then to have it within their lifetimes. I don't understand being able to look at them and still deny that they love one another and have made a life together. They've already made the lifetime commitment; being able to go to the courthouse to have the government formally acknowledge that doesn't change anything within their relationship, but it changes so much everywhere else. (And I wish it could have come sooner, but I'm glad that it happened *now*).

(I am so looking forward to SF Pride parade this Sunday. First time I'm able to attend; seems like a good year to go! My brother is all "wave a flag for me" :D)

Author's Summary: Sergei’s first love was a disaster. His first relationship isn’t turning out to be much better. But maybe, through all the confusion and helplessness, there’s a way to find hope.

Podficcer Notes: Recorded as a contribution toward the fandomaid fundraising efforts toward the Nepal earthquake this past April.  Thanks so much, alley_skywalker for your contribution!  I enjoyed spending time with this story, and it was a neat challenge to record a story where the personalities of the characters were based only on the context the story gave them instead of bringing all the baggage of the fandom itself into it.  :)

Archivists:  I'm tagging this with the usual not-archived tag, but I'm not sure how the archive feels about original fic podfics?  If y'all decide it's not within the scope of the archive to host this, no problem.  :)
