LJ custom colors for S1 style; Gmail weirdness; Google workarounds

The colors for old-style journals with custom colors (S1 styles) were broken after the latest LJ release. Now they are fixed, but if you are affected, it is very likely that you need to set them manually again.Collapse )

There were some mild Gmail delays yesterday, and it turned out that Gmail violated the fundamental paradigm that mail is handled as a stack in the order of arrival. Instead the mail was inserted in the order it was time-stamped by the sender, so sometimes new unread messages were inserted deeper than already read messages.

That's pretty bad, because this creates risk that some delayed messages would never be noticed, if they are inserted deep enough. It seems that Google has problems with quality control recently. Collapse )
