It was my birthday on Sunday, so I have spent a delicious weekend celebrating. A day warm enough to spend on the beach is rare enough in the North East of England in the height of summer, but to spend the first of October drinking champagne by the sea and plodging is absolutely staggering! It was very happy-making.

While I was off enjoying myself, my fellow committee members on AD&T and Systems were working hard deploying new code to the AO3. This... did not go quite as smoothly as hoped. Various unexpected problems meant that they had to take the site down several times while they sorted things out, but because they are MADE OF AWESOME they worked like crazy until everything was fixed. Coming back after a weekend of relaxing to a chat transcript of people brainstorming fixes and working late into the night to restore fannish funtimes really underlined for me just how amazing the AO3 team is. One of the things I love about the OTW as a whole is that it represents not only a lot of fun (we wouldn't be in this project unless we liked it!) but also unbelievable levels of hard work and dedication. It's both amazing and wonderful to me that people are prepared to work late into the night to fix a server, or translate a news post, or answer one... last... support request.

♥ our awesome team. You are the best birthday present ever!
