Our content importer has mostly caught up with its backlog; almost everything that's still listed as being "in the queue" are jobs that were tried, failed once or more with a temporary failure, and are waiting to try again. (The importer tries a few times, at successively longer intervals, when it gets a failure it thinks might be temporary/might correct itself later on.) This means that new imports scheduled now should complete in hours (or even minutes), not the "several days" it's been taking.

If you tried to schedule a second import while the first one was still running, at any time in the past 10 days or so, you may have confused the poor thing. If you think your import should be finished by now and it isn't, and you're seeing "Aborted" on the Importer Status part of the Importer page, feel free to open a support request in the Importer category and we'll look into it for you. (It may take a little bit before you get a response; those of us who have the access to look into importer problems have been really busy for the past two weeks or so, and I at least need a few days to catch my breath a bit before diving back into the fray! But we'll do what we can.)

I hope all y'all are continuing to settle in well to your new home!

So, I've vaguely noticed people talking about a show called Black Sails, which I gathered was about pirates. I finally saw a gif from it, did a double take, squinted closer, and...

...is that Toby Stephens?!?

IMDB confirms that, yes, the main character is indeed played by Toby Stephens. Aww! I'm so happy for him, getting his own show. By and large, he just gets cast as weaselly aristocratic villains. (Which he could be in Black Sails, for all I know.) Anyway, I'm pleased, and maybe I should watch it.

The Curse of Cash )The Shakespeare Riots )Nigel Cliff, The Shakespeare Riots: Late nineteenth-century Americans and Britons were pretty serious about their Shakespeare. Both claimed him as their inheritance, and most of the book is taken up describing the cultural role of Shakespearean actors and Shakespeare’s plays in the period; it ends in a big riot because of anti-British feeling in New York played out through the bodies of two actors in competing presentations and with competing acting styles, the more emotional and physical American versus the more thoughtful Briton.

These are ordinary stories from an oncology floor at a teaching hospital, with small victories, small losses, petty patients and graceful ones.
