LJ Bug? [Jul. 14th, 2004|03:43 pm]
Here's an odd thing. I posted this entry early this morning, just after my LJ cluster bacame available after being read-only for several hours. The entry now appears in my journal, and in one on my filters, but does not show up on the default view of my friends page. I checked a couple of the friends pages of people who have me listed, and it isn't there either. Also, my user info page says that my journal was updated one day ago, rather than ten hours ago. If anybody clicks on that link and does not see the entry, or gets an error message, could you let me know? I'm going to report the error to support, in case it is the result of something that needs fixed, rather than just one of those one-time LJ flukes.

Of course, I'm assuming that somebody is going to see this entry. Ever the optimist.

Update: The earlier post finally showed up on my friends page the next time I logged in after making this post. I suppose it was just a temporary glitch, maybe the result of the timing of the post, which may have been made just as the cluster was being returned to its fully operational mode.

i remember seeing the post in question when i glanced at my friendslist earlier this morning, and this would have been within an hour after you posted (based on the post's time stamp)

as a seeming variation of this theme, in the past i have on a couple of occasions observed where i'll post an entry that won't immediately appear in my journal, but will in the friendslist of other accounts, and then at some future point lj magically resynchronizes itself and all is good.

it's probably a bug that's difficult to reproduce (and thus difficult to fix), but it wouldn't hurt to report it anyway...and the ex-sw tester has spoken from the grave, haha.

Re: curious

A couple of times in the past there have been posts by friends which I could read in their journals, but which didn't show up on my friends page. I guess the aggregator is a pretty complex bunch of code, and bound to produce the ocasional glitch. In fact, I'm still amazed that it ever works at all. In any case, the missing post has at last appeared in its proper place on my frineds page, and all the other places I've looked. The wheels of LiveJournal grind slowly, sometimes, but they usually get things sorted out in the end.

the entry is there on my friends reading page. I don't recall this morning, but today's been a wild ride in this neighborhood, maybe I saw it earlier, maybe I didn't.

The post has at last come home to roost on my friends page. It was a weird glitch though- especially the fact that the "Most Recent Update" on my user info page didn't acknowledge the post, even though it appeared in my journal and on one of my filters. Computers confuse me. I'm glad I don't have to run this web site.

Weird things have been happening on lj more than usual I think. I saw your post but it was later in the morning after I thought I had read everything that was there. Strange how they show up. :)
