State of the site

Okay, I have noticed some people have noticed that I have not been very active in updating the site and getting things up to date. I have to fess up to this. My mind has been elsewhere. Work has been getting hectic. I got my yearly review, and it didn't go so well. Last year I spent so much time in IJ, that I neglected my real job. So this year I have been pouring all of my attention into it. I have been working on a big project that is nearing completion. Once this is done, I will have more time to dedicate to this site.

There are a number of bugs that need to be fixed, and will be fixed with the next update from the LJ source tree. This is going to be a big update and will take me awhile to merge the code into the InsaneJournal tree. Once that is done, I really need a large number of users to help me test things. You need to find things that you know are currently broken and test them against the new code.

Also in this code update are some changes that help block the comment spam that we are getting. I am fighting it every day, thanks to the spam reports that you all are sending in, we have done a great job of slowing the amount that is able to get by. But some is still getting by.

I just really want you all to know, that I am not ignoring IJ, it's just that life outside of IJ has gotten in the way. I will be doing everything I can to get the activity on this site back up as soon as humanly possible.

Issue with "Opal" style

Okay everyone, I am aware of an issue with the "Opal (OSWD)" S2 style. It appears that the S2 system is ignorning the "Content Font Color" on the Reply Page. Looking into this, it appears that this problem is occouring over at LJ too. I just dont know if anyone has noticed or bothered to look into it. I am going to get in contact with the LJ guys and see if I can get their help in fixing it. Specifically if you choose black for your background of your style, then you click the "leave a comment" link and your text is not visible

What I need is someone to let me know if this is happening with other S2 styles, please comment to this entry and let me know.

Super one time only special

InsaneJournal is having a rough time right now. Accounts are not selling and ads are not paying for the site hosting. Normally this isn't a problem but with the holidays approaching, we are running rather thin. To help out InsaneJournal we are running a one time only promotion that will pay for this month's server bills.

The next 5 users who purchase a Permanently Insane account will get it for the low, one time only price of $20. The only stipulation is that to receive this low low price, you must use PayPal to pay for your order.

Have a community that you want a PI for? Have a friend you want to give a holiday present to? Just feel like supporting IJ?

Then go to and buy a Permanently Insane account as soon as possible.

Problem with friend's pages

We are currently aware that some users are unable to view their friend's pages. We are activly working to resolve this issue. As a temporary measure you can use the S2 Style System for your journal. This problem is isolated to the S1 style system.

Back in town

Just so everyone knows, I'm back in town. I'll post more about it later :)

Going out of town

All, I am going out of town for the next few days. The server is rather stable at the moment so I am not very worried about things. If someone needs to get ahold of me, my cell phone number is in a previous post. If you can find it, then you're on the list of those who can read it. If not .. then don't worry about it.

If you just need to send me a non-urgent note, use the IJ text messageing system to send me a text to my phone.

I'll be back Friday afternoon.

April Fools

If you didn't figure it out already. Happy April Fool's day. :-D

IJ is not going anywhere for a long long time.

Goodbye Everyone

Well, it's been an adventure, but we're giving up. InsaneJournal will be closing forever at the end of the day today. We will redirect over to LiveJournal so you can get a real journal. We've failed and that's all that I can say about it.

What Happened to IJ?

Okay here's my promised update of what I did to break InsaneJournal.

I've been having a consatant problem with perl (the language that most of this site is wriatten in) where certian features that should work, just don't work quite right. So I figured I woudl update perl on the server and I managed to break it, and I broke it allright .. really really badly.

It took me over 12 hours to first sort out what was wrong, figure out how to fix it, and then go about fixing it. Trust me IJ's downtime affected me personally more than anyone else out there, and I am eternally sorry for making it unavilable to all of you. This site has become a huge fixture in my life and hoepfully it will eventually get to the size where it can become my full time job ... now woudlnt that be nice.

Back to work

Well as most of you have probably noticed, I have been negleting IJ for the past 6 weeks. Thats because I had a side job developing another LJ based site (dont worry its not competition, they dont even offer "journals") but now thats done and I got a good chunk of money out of it.

So I'm going to be putting the latest LJ code on the test server over the next few days. So those of you who enjoy playing with the latest and greatest features, keep an eye on [info]codetesting for details of what will need to be tested (probably about everything).

Well Im done posting, lets get some activity in this community. I dont want it to be just about me posting whats going on with the site. Its for everyone to talk about the site.
