Difficult solution for a simple location problem?

Stuff stuff stuff:

#!/usr/bin/perl - the location of perl in all LJ code files

#!/usr/local/bin/perl - sometimes required for people, for various reasons. Requires changing the top line in a ton of code files.

Are there any clean ways for handling these differences? It's really hackish to just write a script to run and change every one of the magic lines after each cvs update.

looking at faq 103 i noticed that permanent accounts get "shortchanged" initially. perhaps that should be changed? give them the std base + 5/month?

secondly, should communities be able to generate invitation codes? what about shared journals?

-- update:

also noted... the "expiration" for permanent codes needs to be checked to make sure that it applies only to the ones generated for the permanent account reasson, not the rest.

furthermore, it should be checked and verified that it isnt invalidly generating invitation codes (which it actually is doing) for situations in which a user had a paid account and transferred it to someone else (after getting a permanent account or whatever).

lastly, there should be an option to generate a specified number of codes instead of all of them at once. i now have 53 invitation codes, all to invite 1 person. phooey.

livejournal site under ie6

various pages on the site are not displaying the look that was intended (or previously present) when viewed under ie6. this was mentioned in the journal style templates... but affects the rest of the site as well.

an example... (after logging in of course).

etc etc.

also as an aside, i noticed that has author links for most (if not all of the clients) with the exception of the windows client. brad and i should be linked there with version information stated.. brad 1.3.8 and prior, visions 1.3.9 and latter.

The privacy page asserts that LJ never gives out your gender. There's one small exception: if you allow yourself to be texted, you get the message "Text X on his mobile", where "his" reads "her" or "their" depending on what the "gender" field reads. The wording needs to be updated here.
