As of last night, raids are now available to players 25 and up, and at a "wide variety of gyms" throughout the world. I've got two gyms in map-sight of home; one of them has a level one raid this hour, and the other has a level four raid coming up in a bit over an hour. Hopefully an achievable raid comes soon to a gym near you!

*edit* ha, and the third gym that's just slightly out of sight has.a level three raid in an hour and a half.

It's challenge time!

Comment with Just One Thing you've accomplished in the last 24 hours or so. It doesn't have to be a hard thing, or even a thing that you think is particularly awesome. Just a thing that you did.

Feel free to share more than one thing if you're feeling particularly accomplished!

Extra credit: find someone in the comments and give them props for what they achieved!

Nothing is too big, too small, too strange or too cryptic. And in case you'd rather do this in private, anonymous comments are screened. I will only unscreen if you ask me to.

Go!

I’m finally getting back to working on a new gateway/router server and I’m basically setting up this old-school sort of DMZ, with the rest of our servers hanging off one card, and our internal LAN/DHCP/NAT side hanging off the other. (Using ISC, which Debian seems to like.) And all of that seems to be right from the new server’s perspective, which is yay!

Except there’s no packet forwarding from the DHCP side even though it’s enabled and I’m sure I enabled it and yes the kernel thinks its enabled but it isn’t happening.

Any ideas where to start?

Please call your senators. Please. Some people are going to get really, really screwed, and there's only so much kindness to go around for all of us needing to directly help keep everyone else out of medical bankruptcy, let alone death. I wish it didn't sound this overbearing but sometimes the stakes are the stakes.

We're about to find out how much everyone really cares about other people. How far do you to go to find out about this?

I'm off to Columbus, Ohio, for ASEE for a few days. Small chalkboard comics to follow in the meantime. Might be able to meet-up with any interested readers - send me an email if you want me to set something up.

Title: You And Me
Author: [personal profile] bixgirl1
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 28,000 Approx.
Summary: When Harry sits down with Malfoy, he's really only looking for a reprieve from the constant stares and whispers. (Mostly.) What he gets instead are a series of strange events that lead to a friendship that is something else, questions that nobody knows how to answer, and the realisation that the person that Harry doesn't know how to hate, anymore, seems to be the person who knows exactly what he needs. // A story in which everything is complicated. And yet, somehow, none of it is.
Content/Warning(s): D/s, under-negotiated kink, implied subspace, Veritaserum, life debts

This story is fantastic! If you haven't read it yet, GOoo! :D

It's an 8th Year fic, in which Harry's tired of all the attention he's been getting, plus he's been watching Draco, and in an unplanned move, this one day he goes to sit with Draco in the library.

Little by little this happens more and more often. But god, it's so much more than that. You see, there's something happening between Harry and Draco, there's this amazing sexual tension, but on top, there's the Life Debt between them and Harry's afraid that Draco is. . . receptive to his. . . advances because of the Life Debt, and they are sort of terrible to communicate properly, you see?

But still, they can't help themselves, even though their relationships is confusing and so intense, they just want each other. And god, it's just delicious. The way Draco reacts when Harry asks him to do something, the way he clearly feels when that happens and about Harry, and the way that makes Harry feel, it's so so good.

I believe I'm making a mess of this rec, but truly, you should read it now because it's fantastic and intense and super sexy. You're not going to regret it, mark my words! :D
