I broke metachat. I'm sorry. I'm trying to make it better.
It's like minimalist art.

Wow. It's more broken than I thought! Is that an avatar box???

Oh fuck, bugger, bollocks, shit.

Hey! Looking pretty good!

I thought that you had erased the entire DB...

Nah - Just some weirdness with my FTP Client. I was trying to remove some changes I'd been making locally and managed to delete the source code on the server.

There were backups, but you'll notice I lost the current cover art.

There may be a couple of other gotchas floating round the system. I'll firefight as they come up.

Also. There should be a proper backup somewhere I'll try and find it.

The only gotcha that I can see now is that the form-box we type in, is smaller than it used to be (as in not as wide).

The text box is shifted to the right also.

The textbox is smaller for me too. (Then again, the internet, which unfortunately controls all the databases we use at work, including the one that sends/processes requests HAS BEEN SHITTING OUT EVERY 5 MINUTES ALL GODDAMN DAY here at work.)

Yeah - It's smaller. Not sure what I've done. I need to get my trashed local version up and running again, then I can see what I've done.

Not sure if it would be any help at all, but google's cache seems to be in tact (as of this moment).

awww seanyboy, can only imagine the anxiety you must have been going through.

I like the new look. really.

It looks the same to me!

The mouseover tags on the photos just made me laugh.

So did i.
Like a flood, all washed away
and i wondered, would we start all over?
Damn, what about all the stuff i had here i never saved or copied anywhere else?
If we could start all over, what--

Then the phone rang. Then the Bees knocked a box of seedlings and wet dirt everywhere. Then i had to deal with people.

The text box is still small for me.

I miss all the fun.

Lets see if this works.
posted by seanyboy 05 October | 18:02
Looks same as before.
i kinda liked the shift, besides the potential trauma.
Who did the pattern that was on the right?
posted by ethylene 05 October | 18:31
taz did the pattern that was to the right.

We use it for some of the sidebar projects (e.g. emcee)

See Citrus Moon for more.

Oh, huh. I stopped paying for my typepad account a million moons ago, but it still comes up. I did not know that.

It looks like the links here (pattern gallery on typepad) still work, though these are really only a fraction of all the patterns I made when I was making patterns. If anyone finds that they really want all of them (like... close to 2,000 of them?), I can look for the zip I made for stavrosthewonderchicken.

I love these patterns.

If you run across that zip file, I'd love to have a copy.
