I created [community profile] 10variations for Dreamwidth because it was an old concept from Livejournal that I used to love and many people felt inspired by, and I thought it would be nice to recreate it for a better, safer and cleaner platform like Dreamwidth :3

It's a community where you post a batch of 10 icons each time, made out of the same image but all different (according to a set of themes). It's best if you look at the profile to understand the concept! I hope you will like it and participate, I will participate also :3

EDIT: I am adding, the next day, that the owner of the shop has reached out to me, and offered an apology and to try to get to the bottom of what events unfolded outside the store that left me so upset. I will be speaking with him in the next few days and appreciate that they reached out.

Original vent / post:
West Somerville folks - I just had a terrible experience in Teele Square, bad enough that I would like to spread my rage at the proprietor of a local business, the Knight Moves Cafe on Broadway. Please stay far away from this business with kids. If you have any kids who walk to and from the west somerville school, please make sure they steer clear of the business as well.

The proprietor (edit: manager) of this business threatened to call the Somerville police and made my children cry, for the crime of disagreeing over what to get with a few bucks each at the conveience store, and the crime of waiting for me on the sidewalk rather than inside the dry cleaners on the same block, and then choosing to get into my unlocked car with the cold drinks they had bought at the convenience store, while my 5 min errand lasted 15 min because the folks at the dry cleaners were trying to repair a broken zipper for me on a coat I had cleaned out of my closet and intended to donate.

Seriously if you have any choice in ever doing business with them, and support the right of elementary school kids to have a little independence and learn from their disagreements on whether mom said they could get ice cream, I urge you steer clear.

I am FURIOUS at having been confronted for going to the dry cleaners and letting my kids go to the convenience store to enjoy their refreshing cold drinks. And I even like board games and was pleased when they came to town.

I am SURE that plenty of kids the age of mine walk home from WSNS through Teele Square every school day. Yes, even when it's hot out. But if your first grader has an argument with their big sibling in the vicinity of Teele you can expect the police to be called, next time.

I know that you can get free passes from the libraries that are good for a specific day, and I was wondering if anyone had more than they need for any days coming up soon. And I know that members get free passes as well. I would love to go, but can't afford the normal cost.

Thanks!

Over the past few days I was surprised to walk by these three businesses and find them closed. Anyone know when they closed, and why?
  • The Shawarma Place, in Cutter Square (EDIT: moved to 215 Highland Ave)
  • Aguacate Verde, in Wilson Square
  • Union Mart and Subway, in Union Square

THIS TELLS ME SO MUCH ABOUT WHY MY DANCE LESSONS IN THE 80'S AND 90'S WERE FUCKING WEIRD.



SERIOUSLY THIS LOOKS LIKE SOFTCORE PORN. WHAT'S WITH THE CONSTANT CAMERA SPIN?

Are there any realtors here?

Are there any realtors here? Commercial realtors even better.

I'd like to get a reality check (is that an inadvertent pun???) on the viability of doing a storefront "pop up" art gallery in and around Davis Sq and the environs. I have some questions about what to consider when approaching building owners and how to make my "pitch" more attractive and acceptable.

Please PM me

Are you a fan of NBC's Timeless?

Are you looking for a place to post your Timeless fanworks: your incredible icons, your fantastic fanart, your fanvids formidable, your fic, your podfic and meta?

Are you already thinking and/or obsessing about the next season even though it's over a year away? Are you longing for a place to discuss the past season's episodes, analyze the characters, and theorize about time travel?

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.

It looks like the national discussion of climate issues may be stunted for a while. But that's all the more reason to get involved locally on making changes and influencing directions for our city. There's a meeting coming up to discuss this, details at the link.

https://sustainaville.wordpress.com/2017/06/12/get-involved-in-developing-somerville-climate-forward-somervilles-first-climate-change-plan/

Short version:

We are launching this project at the first Somerville Climate Forward Community Meeting on June 26th. Meeting details are as follows:
When: Monday, June 26, from 6 to 8 p.m.
Where: East Somerville Community School, 50 Cross Street, Somerville

MORAY BEACH

OPENING JUNE 15
Welcome to Moray Beach
Maybe you were having an ordinary day, doing ordinary things.
Or, maybe, your day was in fact extraordinary, and you're kind of busy and, really, don't have time for any nonsense.
Unfortunately, all of that is gone.
Welcome to Moray Beach. Welcome to your fresh start.
18+ | multigenre | multifandom


Moray Beach is a game set on a tropical island paradise populated entirely by displaced characters. Through some glitch of time and space, they have ended up here, and here they will stay for as long as the island wills it.

A game for mature and seasoned players, it follows basic tenants of fun, respect, and honesty. Player anonymity is protected without question, and abusive and dramatic behaviour will not be tolerated. The goal is low moderation, high activity, and a place for all of us to just, well, play.

Whether you're looking for serious plot, horror or thriller storylines, or even just slice-of-life hijinks, Moray Beach will accommodate you.

Hi, everyone. I've been meaning to ask this question for years: a long time ago [personal profile] foxfirefey gave me some code to have a "back to top" link with because Transmogrified didn't have one. Later on, she modified the code because it kept moving around on page re-sizing. Her mod solved that problem but possibly begat another: the jumplink doesn't clear short entries/pages with little content.

While this doesn't normally affect .page-tag, .page-icon, .page-archive, .page-recent, .page-read, or .page-network (but it could; the content on those views just happens to be long enough to clear the jumplink) it affects some .page-month views and short entries, reply views with short comments being replied to, reply views where the post and comment form combined won't clear the jumplink, and so on.

Here's an example of the problem in viewable action, seen in the month view.

In playing with the live HTML editor in Firefox the other night I realized I can make the jumplink clear - and stay in place - even with little page content present only if I put it in a pretty weird part of the HTML; it looks like I'd have to take it out of $this->print_body(); and move it to $this->print_module_section("two"); right before the <div style="clear:both"> that's there to clear the footer.

This is a screencap of where the jumplink would need to go, according to live HTML editing: https://marahmarie.dreamwidth.org/file/72191.png

My s2 layer is public and viewable here: my s2 layer.

That said, if anyone can think of a better spot for it in the s2, I'm open to any and all ideas! Fwiw, I've tried CSSing it into clearing but so far, without any luck.

I can't write original s2 nor modify s2 like this (only the simplest snippets of it; this unfortunately didn't qualify) so I'm curious if anyone knows how to move the jumplink without breaking other things (which I actually did three times before giving up the other night in live code: every time I went into our compiler and tried to move it where the HTML live editor seems to think it should go, my sidebar wound up resting in my content body, while my content got pushed clear off the top of the page, so whatever I was trying to do to get this right was not working).

Any help is gladly appreciated!

“Hardscaping” for Your Urban Garden

Somerville Garden Club members Dorothy Africa and Eleanor Ramsay will give presentations on the creative use of plantings and materials to mask unfortunate views or brighten up dark areas, in the small gardens typical of many Somerville and Cambridge neighborhoods. Dorothy Africa will present practical ideas for “hardscaping” -landscaping in a hard place – with inexpensive and creative materials. Eleanor Ramsay will present a slide show of how she turned her literal hardscape, an asphalt parking lot backyard, into a shady garden retreat.

Tickets for the Somerville Garden Tour will be on sale at the meeting. There will also be the usual Q and A and raffle. All Somerville Garden Club meetings are free and open to the public. 7-9pm. Meetings are held the at the Tufts Administration Building, (TAB), 167 Holland Street, second floor, wheelchair accessible. Parking is available, and the building is a ten-minute walk from the Davis Square MBTA stop.

Also, we hope you'll join us for our first Garden Tour since 2013

Arborist?

Can anyone recommend an arborist? I've got some trees that need cutting back and I want someone who won't kill the tree and won't fall off a ladder (both of which are things I could plausibly do by accident).
