Tangent OR - Entering Tangent

An FYI: Problems with the Xcolibur Site Scheme

I notice that more problems with this are slowly starting to show up in Support.

As of late yesterday morning/early yesterday afternoon, I became unable to access anything on the website that required use of the site scheme. I could post from a client, as well as read my journal, friends page and other people's journals, but I could not reply or read comments. I couldn't even reach any of the regular website.

Testing and a lot of work today revealed that it was the site scheme and we managed to work around and fix it. As soon as I changed it back to Dystopia, my problems stopped.

I just ran into a problem that I think might affect other people with an own LJ installation, so I think it's worth mentioning here.

The new MemCache stuff needs a perl module "MemCachedClient.pm", located in $LJHOME/src/memcached/api/perl. Since this path isn't mentioned anywhere, obviously the thing couldn't find it.

I solved the problem by adding the line
   use lib "$ENV{'LJHOME'}/src/memcached/api/perl";
just above
   use MemCachedClient;
near the top of $LJHOME/cgi-bin/LJ/MemCache.pm.

Brad: Might it be worth actually adding that in CVS? Or how else is it supposed to work?

Problem with BML

I think it's the change to the BML configuration system which is causing this problem for me:
[Error: _CODE block failed to execute by permission settings][Error: Undefined custom element 'PAGE']
I get that on every BML page. Any ideas, anyone?

Edit: Thanks for everyone who pondered this for me; in particular, thanks to supersat who helped me solve it on IRC. :)

Unable to edit an entry in a community

This is the URL of an entry I posted: http://www.livejournal.com/community/_dreamland_/28319.html

So I should be able to edit it at http://www.livejournal.com/editjournal_do.bml?journal=_dreamland_&itemid=28319 , right? But when I click the "edit" button, or manually create that URL, I get "Could not find selected journal entry". Has there been a change in the URL format for editing community entries? Editing entries in my own journal works just fine.

RSSifying the friends page

I just hooked up Feedreader to some livejournal RSS feeds, and I think it's great. But creating a new feed for each person I want to keep track of seems like overkill when the friends system is already in place. I've looked over create_view_rss, and creating a create_view_friends_rss should be a straightforward case of separating out the XML rendering code and filling it with the friends query instead of the userjournal query. Am I missing something? Has such a thing been suggested before? If no and no, I'd be more than happy to do it myself. Where would a patch be submitted to?
