So apparently LJ does not like something about Ascension 18 -- I have no idea what (html, text, and LJ code all post fine separately, and the post isn't even remotely over the post length limit -- but whenever I try to post it, I get a connection reset error, and no, it's not my internet connection). I've already wasted 15 minutes of my time trying to get it to work, and that's 14 minutes too many.
So I'm going to try posting it when LJ's cramps are over! Maybe tomorrow, maybe later in the week, with how often LJ's getting hit by DDoS attacks, I really can't promise anything.
Sorry if you care about timely updates, I care about them too, but I have the update; LJ just won't let me post it, and I am too pissed off to be remotely civil to Support.
