So chocolateboxcomm went live on Tuesday and I received two great treats! Loved them both.
A Journey Long Overdue - Teen Wolf, Stiles/Derek - Glimpses into life after high school. Stiles's way to finding himself and how postcards as well as Derek play a big role in that. Highly enjoyable. Loved how Stiles came to rely on the postcards all the while becoming who he needed to be.
Catch Me (if You Can) - Flash/Supergirl, Barry/Kara - This whole superhero thing was even better when Kara had someone to share it with. - This gets exactly what I love about the idea of Barry and Kara as a couple. The ability to just be themselves completely.
Glad to have Monday off. I've got a bunch of things to do, including see the last of the Oscar-nominated movies. There are also the not-fun errands that I keep putting off. I forgot to place my ShopRite at Home order this week so I actually have to go grocery shopping. Ugh. I willingly pay that 5.99 fee for them to do the shopping and bring it to my car on the way home for work. I feel my time is worth at least that much...but I forgot to do it and now I must go pick stuff up.
Not much else to report at the moment. I'm behind on pretty much everything.
Behind the cut, a tour of some of the new stuff we've done in the last few months, plus a look at some older changes that could use more love:
* Image Hosting Frontend
* HTTPS Beta
* Create Entries Beta: progress report
* Selective comment screening
* Other alphabets in site search: fixed!
* Icon file size limit increased
* Dreamwidth: Did You Know?
* Team Dreamwidth

1) Do you try to see all the nominees for Best Picture each year before the Academy Awards show?
Yes, I do. It's a tradition I've had since I was a teenager and took my first film class in high school.
2) How many of this year’s nine Best Picture nominees have you seen so far?
So far I've seen five of them. I still need to see Moonlight, Lion, Fences and Hacksaw Ridge
3) Of those nominated films you’ve seen, which is your favorite?
Manchester by the Sea was really, really good, but really, really depressing. I really loved La, La Land and the Little Bit and I go around singing music from it a lot. That said, my favorite is Hidden Figures. It was so good. I loved every second of it and I think it deserves so much more recognition.
4) Is your favorite the same as the film you think is actually the “best picture”?
I think Hidden Figures is the best picture of the five movies that I've seen thus far. it's possible that will change when I see the rest. I don't know.
5) Which film do you think will win Best Picture?
Right now, I would say either Moonlight or La, La Land, depending on the mood of the Oscar voters. They're really weird sometimes.
Here's a partial list of changes that will go live with this push, apart from the usual minor tweaks and bugfixes:
- HTTPS Everywhere beta! Users can opt-in to have all Dreamwidth content automatically served over HTTPS. We'll post the instructions for this after the feature goes live.
- New and improved design for the file management pages, which we were hiding from you because we were so embarrassed about them before. Thanks to momijizukamori for making them prettier and more functional!
- Backend fixes to resolve problems using the aforementioned file management pages. (Did I already mention the embarrassment?)
- At long last, international character support for journal search! Our systems guru alierak finally cracked this long-standing bug.
- Support index page converted to Foundation styling, for your mobile viewing pleasure.
- For users of the Practicality style: color properties now sort properly in the customization wizard.
- For users of the Drifting style: the QuickReply box will now appear in the appropriate location, instead of wandering off somewhere unexpected.
- Improved handling of word break (<wbr>) elements in user entries.
- Allow embeds from: Facebook, CNN, 4shared.com, playmoss.com, onedrive.com, jsfiddle.net, scratch.mit.edu
We'll update again to let you know when the code push is in progress!
