i'm going to try and sleep again now because @home (my cable internet connection) has slowed to intolerable speeds. i did accomplish a few things, though: my inbox page now shows mail from the correct mail server (and I published the source), I cleaned a bunch of LJ code, and I added some dumb functionality to the userinfo page: a little thumbs-up icon next to paid-account users' user names. also, you can lookup users by their userid number now .... like, who was LiveJournal user 10,000? ... oh, look ... it's Gothic Chic. How nice.
