Odds and Ends: Naps, emails, error messages
javabeans: So, another week has flown by and it’s time for another edition of Odds & Ends. What was this week like, you ask? Hold on, I’m going to need to grab a drink first.
girlfiday: Already ahead of you.
javabeans: I don’t know why things suddenly got so hectic around here, but this week was a killer. It could have been the hundreds of emails in our inbox we had to reply to. Or maybe the minion boot camp we had to devise for prospective new recappers. Or maybe all the time-travelers in dramaland have actually been stealing our time in order to increase their own, damn those beautiful bastards.
girlfiday: What, that’s not fair.
javabeans: In which case, they owe us big time. And yes, I will take my payment in kisses.
girlfiday: And piggyback rides, and home-cooked meals in non-snack-bar-shapes. Basically, everything Sung Joon is doing in I Need Romance 3, with a side of Do Min-joon for whimsy. I think in general we were underprepared for the amount of work it would be to read everyone’s minion applications and respond to everyone.
javabeans: …which we’re still working on. If you haven’t heard from us, we promise you will! Soon! Ish!
girlfiday: That also means we’ll be seeing a few new names cropping up on Dramabeans to add to recaps and the occasional news post.
javabeans: As a whole, though, we aren’t changing much about Dramabeans and we’ll still be recapping and writing like madwomen, so this doesn’t signal big changes. We’re just trying to sneak in a few extra naps is all.
girlfiday: Oh yeah, we’re not going anywhere! And by the way, that nap thing she just said is a LIE.
javabeans: Well if you just worked harder and faster, maybe you would deserve more sleep. (Thus saith the Laws of Dramaland. I didn’t invent these rules!)
girlfiday: No, but we continue to live by them!
javabeans: *hollow voice* It’s the only way I know how to live.
girlfiday: But based on those rules, we should be getting more in the way of rewards. Is it because we’re not working six part-time jobs, having regular nosebleeds, and dressing like men during the day?
javabeans: If I were living a drama, I’m pretty sure I’d be the evil mastermind. Or maybe the bitchy mother-in-law, but without the children. (Sometimes these are one and the same.)
girlfiday: So… you just want to be the rich bitch, is what you’re saying.
javabeans: You say that like it’s a bad thing. ANYWAY, back to the real world. I’ve noticed a few comments here and there about site glitches, and while we have certainly weathered our fair share of them (more than that!), those should all be at an end after a server and host move, some tweaks, and maybe some voodoo magic.
girlfiday: There was some praying involved. Server moves are nerve-racking.
javabeans: So if you’re still seeing problems, please let us know what they are, but only if they happened very recently. If you’re thinking of an incident that took place more than a few days or weeks ago, we’re crossing our fingers that the problem is a thing of the past.
girlfiday: Yes. Death to Error Establishing Connection to Database!
javabeans: Don’t say that! Just reading those words gives me an eye twitch!
girlfiday: I should’ve printed one out so we could burn it in effigy. Cyberspace is so…not tactile.
javabeans: Yes, hugging your computer screen set to Gong Yoo’s abs just doesn’t have that punch, does it?
girlfiday: Have you been spying on me again?
javabeans: Oh look, a UFO!
girlfiday: Where?! Do Min-joooooooooon! Don’t goooooooooo!
javabeans: Also, don’t dieeeeeee!
