moodid bug

A bunch of people have been complaining about a moodid bug. I can reproduce it, but now I'm trying to think of how I can track it down, and this is the best I can do for now.

From my informal testing, it appears that in the login response, mood_50_name (which should be "groggy") is coming back blank intermittently... something like 30% of the time.

So are some of the servers corrupted somehow? I retrieved the HTTP headers, too, but they don't include which web slave is handling my requests. I can't think of what else is causing this intermittance. Worse, once a client retrieves the mood list and caches it, if they don't get groggy on their first request they'll never get it at all (because in the future they'll think they already have the full mood list).

< lj invite="......." > suggestion

I've bought +/- 1 gazillion LJ accounts over the last chronoperiod for me and friends; as a result i have tons of invite codes, which i periodically donate to the tender masses. But it's very hard to keep track of which ones have been used from which accounts.

So it would be nice if there was a code like
    <lj invite="4r56taaa5tf8">
that would expand to
    4r56taaa5tf8 used

Anyone agree and want to do it, thereby saving me from actually having to think and suchlike?
