It's time for another question thread!

The rules:

- You may ask any dev-related question you have in a comment. (It doesn't even need to be about Dreamwidth, although if it involves a language/library/framework/database Dreamwidth doesn't use, you will probably get answers pointing that out and suggesting a better place to ask.)
- You may also answer any question, using the guidelines given in To Answer, Or Not To Answer and in this comment thread.

rydra_wong: Peanuts. Lucy has just pulled away the football and Charlie Brown has crashed onto his back. "And a time to pull away the football," she says. (football -- time)
So [personal profile] rachelmanija is trying to start a campaign to pull the nuclear football away from Trump's grip.

I Google, and found Charlie Brown's Greatest Misses: Every 'Peanuts' Football Gag Comic. Some of the panels seemed ... strangely apposite.

rydra_wong: The display board of a train reads "this train is fucked". (this train is fucked)
I've mentioned the Restricting First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act before. This is the bill that would prevent the US President from launching a pre-emptive nuclear strike without a congressional declaration of war.

But there have been some recent news stories that make it particularly clear why this is important:

NYT: Mr. Trump Alone Can Order a Nuclear Strike. Congress Can Change That.

RawStory: GOP official imagines Kelly and Mattis discussed tackling Trump in the event he ‘lunges for the nuclear football’: report

TPM: Houston, We Have a Problem. LA, Chicago, STL, ATL, NYC, You Guys Too

[personal profile] rachelmanija has a post with everything: explanation, who to contact, scripts, a hashtag and an aspiration to go viral:

[personal profile] rachelmanija: Pull The Football - Save the World

Look, I grew up in the late '70s and '80s and I was a very anxious child who (like so many) read Raymond Briggs' When The Wind Blows way too early because a lot of adults didn't realize it wasn't a children's book, and also a book on how to prepare for all possible disasters (nuclear war included) which I found in my grandmother's house because anxiety is severely over-determined in my family. I still remember about building a lean-to from doors and whitewashing your windows, okay?

(And yes, I know that the UK is unlikely to be a direct target unless things spread and more countries get pulled in, whereas the South Koreans are absolutely fucked, but I can't even start getting into that kind of calculation before my brain shorts out because it's horrific to even be at the point of thinking about that.)

I am not interested in panicking or freaking out because I know that I can't live at that pitch of terror, and I have to secure the blast doors on my brain and not think about certain shit.

But if we do what we can do, we might be able to make the world substantially safer on this one front.

If you're in the US, contact your representatives and signal-boost on social media. If you're not in the US (like me), signal-boost for those who are. Take what action you can, then return to going lalalalait'llneverhappen because that's how we get through our fucking days, okay?

Let's give this one a shot, and may Stanislav Petrov's spirit watch over and bless us.

rydra_wong: the illuminated Sarajevo haggadah (sarajevo haggadah)
I know we're all up to our eyeballs dealing with the clusterfucks in our respective countries (and the whole "maybe imminent nuclear war" thing), but this is also happening:

NYT: In Grim Camps, Rohingya Suffer on ‘Scale That We Couldn’t Imagine’

NYT: Rohingya Recount Atrocities: ‘They Threw My Baby Into a Fire’

Content notes for gang-rape, massacre, and all the things predictably involved in what the UN rights chief calls a "textbook example of ethnic cleansing."

Some analysis:

Washington Post: Why Aung San Suu Kyi isn’t protecting the Rohingya in Burma

I don't know what people in other countries can do, but here are reputable and reliable organizations raising money to help the more than half a million refugees who've fled already:

ActionAid: Emergency appeal for people fleeing Myanmar

Oxfam Emergency Appeal: Rohingya

I'm sure there are other groups on the ground (please comment with links if you know); these are just two I know are solid.

Amnesty have a petition and are trying to get lobbying going on Twitter:

Rohingya: the deadly situation & what to do about it

Various MPs have sent a letter to our shithead Foreign Secretary, so you can see if yours is a signatory and thank them if they are, lobby them if they're not:

So my workplace gives us a chance twice a year to work on anything we want for a few days, work-related or otherwise, and I thought I'd use some of my time to actually get the new API into a state where we can make it live. With that in mind! What endpoints would you like to see implemented? We're making this Swagger/OpenAPI-compliant, so everything takes JSON as arguments and return JSON formatted data. Stuff already on the list to do or partially done:

/api/v1/users/{username} - GET, shows info about the user (specific info TBD; subset of profile, probably?)
/api/v1/users/{username}/icons - GET, lists icons
/api/v1/users/{username}/icons/{iconid} - GET, returns icon data
/api/v1/users/{username}/journals - GET, returns list of journals with write access.
-- for now, returns only user's primary journal
/api/v1/journals/{username}/accesslists - GET, list of access lists for journal
/api/v1/journals/{username}/tags - GET, list of tags for journal
/api/v1/journals/{username}/xpostaccounts - GET list of xpost accounts
/api/v1/moods - GET list of moods
/api/v1/commentsettings - GET list of allowed comment settings
/api/v1/journals/{username}/entries - POST new entry, GET list of recent entries
/api/v1/journals/{username}/entries/{id} - POST edit entry, GET specific entry
/api/v1/journals/{username}/files - POST new file
/api/v1/spec - GET, returns a description of the API

(Mark and D, as usual, get the final say - some stuff people want may end up being security/privacy risks in non-obvious ways)

[work in progress] I AM SO SORRY THIS IS SO LATE. I filled out my request on 30 minutes of wifi on a red eye after a stressful trip, got home, fell ill and didn't leave the house for days. I hope you're not too frustrated with the delay, I am very sorry if this messed up your schedule.

Here are all my past letters, my tastes have not changed all that much: https://laura47.livejournal.com/tag/dear%20yuletide%20author

Most important: I am very easy to please! I am quite excited that someone out there in the world is writing me a story. :)

General notes: Please no AUs, graphic violence, slavery, miscarriage (unless tagged, i just don't want to be surprised), or sexual assault.

The Martian



I have a problem, which is that I keep rereading The Martian and need something else like it in my life. :) I listen to the audiobook, so I can just kind of... do it a lot. I really don't mean to keep reading it, but I want to share it with someone I'm on a road trip with, or I'm driving while exhausted and I need something engaging and comforting that I won't put me to sleep but it's okay if I don't hear all the words... after I submitted my yuletide requests, I watched it on the plane, and cried a lot. Again.

I got a festivid for The Martian! http://fv-poster.livejournal.com/296096.html

Until I get something else like The Martian in my life, well, here we are!

Uprooted



I'm going to copy in what I wrote last year, it's not changed. :)

well, i unexpectedly fell hard for canon het (good job Naomi)? i would adore something there, of any rating. especially higher ratings. :)

If you're not interested in that, i loooove plotty gen (or any plotty stuff). so much! i got into fandom as a wee child who had zero interest in sex or romance, so that's actually where my roots are. Agnieszka's future, Kasia's adventures in her new life, Alosha past, future, or present, basically anything expanding on what we saw in the book.

I love time travel and intrigue! I love world building! I love detailed intimate relationship building! (Not necessarily sexual, but intimate.)

i'm really into the-importance-of-platonic-female-friendship in this book, like sobbing hysterically over it, so (oddly! very oddly!) i am not interested in romantic/sexual Agnieszka/Kasia. (Believe me, no one is more surprised than I am.)

I have never said this before, but I would totally be happy with babies! Or kids! Whether growing their own or acquiring kids in some other ways or adventures in babysititng. Also domesticity sounds fun. Hijinks, sitcom stuff, wacky misunderstandings, elaborate ruses, all great. Fairly serious stuff about dealing with the complexity of their relationship and their lives, also great! Or stuff around fertility. I'm not squicked by anything involving pregnancy and childbirth.

- sex is good! I've never really asked for sex (or babies!) in yuletide, so i guess i should list kinks I'm not super into? bodily fluid related kink is the main one, any kind of permament bodily modification, and maybe stay away from temporary stuff? (Magic stuff related to this is probably not going to set me off in the same way.) Magic sex is *great*. I adore the possibilities set up in the (small amount!) of sexual content we got in the book. :) Anything that is generally cosidered kind of light-to-middle-ground kink is probably fine. :) I beta read this fic last year and loved every bit of it: http://archiveofourown.org/works/5512190 This one wasn't sex but I also beta read it and loved it. :) http://archiveofourown.org/works/5482808 That's all I've read though - I see there's been a bunch more, but I'm not going to read that before this yuletide for sure. :)

Please no AUs, graphic violence, slavery, miscarriage (unless tagged, i just don't want to be surprised), or sexual assault.

Stranger Things



First off, please don't worry about Stranger Things 2 if you want to write before that! I am very happy to read post-season one fic that is not canon compliant!

I have not actually ready any other ST fic, so please don't be worried about fanon or things that feel repetitive to you if it's what strikes your fancy - it will be new to me!


Characters: I feel like pretty much everyone has something interesting to explore, except maybe Steve's shitty friends? :) I don't know how much I care about their inner lives ;-)

Because sometimes you (and by "you" I mean "I") need to remember that the world isn't a huge trash fire, here's a beautiful (and sometimes sad) article about the case declaring DOMA unconstitutional. Even though we're dealing with the backlash now (and there's always backlash, but we'll get through it together), I am still so glad and so relieved that we all in the United States have the ability to get married, regardless of gender.

(I've had a pretty horrific 2017, so this is not the post to leave pessimistic comments about how terrible things are now. If you feel the desire to be pessimistic, please be understanding of my needs for positivity and take it to your own space.)

Followed by one of the "E"s, apparently.

I think I may need to make an icon of the point at which the sign says "BUILDING A COUNTRY THAT WORKS OR EVERYON"; I think it speaks deeply to the state of British politics right now.

ETA: *points at icon*.

This is an actual thing that actually happened.
splash_the_cat: (Default)
So yesterday I had one of those parenting moments where I had to choke down my terrible rage and present a calm reasonable front.

Why? Because my seven year old, while getting changed at swim class, said, "My belly and thighs look fat to me."

Or the time a couple of weeks ago when he came home anxious and upset because someone at school told him chocolate milk was poison (a classmate), and that higher numbers on white milk made it fatter (an adult). He already thinks fat is bad and scary. At seven. He worries about what he eats, what other kids eat. That night we talked about those fears, that many people say terrible things about fatness, and fat people. I used myself as an example, that people have said cruel and mean things, that there are people who say that because they hate and fear my body, that my body is bad, because I'm fat.

He literally growled. He threatened to punch anyone who said that to me. Which derailed us into another conversation about bullying and physical force, and we never got back to fat. But I've thought about that conversation every day since it happened.

I find it extra hard to navigate these moments these days. Incandescent rage bubbles in my lungs every day, stealing my breath. It bubbles in my blood every day, right there in the veins under the thin skin of my wrists. It fills my throat until I am choking.

And yesterday I choked again. Choked down my rage and hugged him and told him, "Your body looks exactly like it needs to." We talked about how bodies are all different, everyone's body is their own business. What people eat is their own business. That food isn't inherently bad, and neither are anyone's bodies, and anyone who says otherwise... What I really wanted to do was find everyone who has said this like this to my kid and tell them they can shut the fuck up. But I choked that back to, and smiled and told him that everyone has lots of opinions about food and bodies, and what is considered "healthy", but we trust that people know their bodies and their needs, and we pay attention to our own. We know that food is important for our bodies, and he can trust that Mama and Dada will help him learn to make the best choices for him, learn how to trust his choices and his body, and that he doesn't need to listen to what other people tell him about what he eats and how he looks.

Next time we might talk about how people use "healthy" as a weapon. How people push "healthy" as a judgement. That people use "healthy" in a way that is often unattainable.

But really, those people can just shut the fuck up.

And it was a good conversation, a needed one, but my chest was tight when we were done, too full of anger, of anxiety, of the dread that all these words will in the end be useless. It was tight with exhaustion, knowing we will have this conversation again and again, because we've been having it increasingly since he was about five.

Five. The first time he told me he was fat. The first time he told me he learned in school that TV makes you sick and will kill you if you watch too much. The first time he told me that fat was bad, and when I asked him if he thought I was bad because I'm fat, and he bit his lip and nodded his head and looked like he was about to cry. I choked and choked down a volcano and hugged him and told him I loved him and felt a thundering burn under the thin skin of my wrists.

But some days it comes out a little more, steaming fissures cracked in my skin, burning in the tips of my fingers as I wonder how much of this is normal for anxiety for kids, or if I'm watching an eating disorder unfold in slow, terrifying motion right in front of me.


Some day I will forget to choke.
