PATCH: cannot call method quote

This is a quick patch to help the "cannot call method quote" when loading a user page. It does two things: Try connecting to the db four times before marking the server dead, waiting a quarter second between each and specifically checks for the db handle before using it in the make_journal sub and sends a friendlier message if there's a problem.

I think the first item alone should cut down on a lot of the errors without causing much trouble. Now this doesn't address the larger problem of checking for db connections, but it should cut down on the number of errors users get and bug reports for when they do get errors.

This will also keep the process from dying which will help performance overall and I believe should return the message in the context of the site, which is nicer of course.

Any thoughts on this?

Dont know exactly who to address this to, and I'd be more than happy to help on the project if given the opportunity.... but...

Can we please add a function to search for users by location?

I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting people in my neighborhood (Tallahassee) through livejournal, but finding them is an exhausting, google-aided search

This has been driving me nuts for a while
There seems to be a bug with the support system when it sends out the emails.
Is this normal, or is it just me? if its me, how would i go about fixing it?
