I just left the following in an LJ support request:

Several elements of the new comment page design may not be compliant with the U.S. Access Board's Section 508 standards under the Americans With Disabilities Act. The excessive use of Flash items without corresponding text equivalents is problematic, as is the fact that the new style is unreadable for many people who are visually impaired without requiring an associated style sheet. The Flash-based navigation is not supported by most screen readers. In addition, multiple users have reported--and I have experienced--that the design appears to be a migraine trigger due to the animation and also the small font size.

Now, do I think they'll care? Given that they've got 57 pages of comments in the news post and no one official has commented on anything? I doubt it.

ETA: Apparently the navigation is Javascript, not Flash.

Not so much with the surgery.

Another surgery went longer than expected, so they couldn't do mine. After I started crying, I got them to replace my splint, and I talked to the doctor who said that the chief of the orthopedics department is going to do the surgery sometime this weekend.

So that's something. And I've had fishies and sake, so I'm feeling marginally better than I was earlier.

The doctor called a couple of hours ago. They're going to do the surgery this afternoon.

Meh.

I still don't have a surgery date. The rather snippy woman in surgery scheduling told me that they don't have any OR slots this week or next week. She didn't seem to get that I can't walk, and that this is kind of an issue. I'd also kind of like to know when I can go back to work, since, having no sick days left, I'm on "leave without pay". Fortunately, we have some savings, so we won't be completely broke, but overall, this is past annoying.

In an attempt to give myself something to do besides play Rift and CoX, I've signed up for NaNo. My project will be to compile the bits and pieces of Fenris and Julian's story arc up to the Fade Bar/Formspring era. I'm over a thousand words for yesterday, although not quite to my count.

Middle-Aged Woman Yells At Tree Root

you are so good to me eggplant mike
Thank you all SO MUCH for all of the virtual hugs and good wishes!

I went to see the podiatrist today, and he said, "Yup, it's ruptured, and you'll need surgery." Sometime within the next two weeks, I'll go in; I don't have a date yet. In the meantime, I'm going to rent one of those little knee carts so I can maybe go back to work. Poor Ruth will have to drive me in as long as I have the cast.

All things considered, it's annoying, but it could have been a lot worse. My right hand got scraped up when I tried and failed to catch myself. Had I succeeded, I'd probably be looking a broken wrist.

So more wait-and-see, though at least I'll be semi-mobile soon.

Well, that was fun....

...in the completely not at all fun way.

I tripped over a tree root in the dark and probably ruptured my Achilles tendon.

More after I decompress from the ER.

We've been without phone or DSL for over 24 hours now. The very nice people at AT&T customer support say it's a known outage in the area, with no ETR.

Dragon Age 2: Mark of the Assassin

I was hoping for more lore, and more Fenris dialogue that wasn't bugged which makes the baby Julian cry.

I got both of those, but in the end, it was nice and but not overwhelmingly awesome.
