You don't get your non-provisional LJ Programmer license until you've made a commit at 6AM, after having been awake for over 24 hours and/or
drunk, which seems like the best idea ever at the time, works fine in testing, and (when sent live on the site) promptly has one of the following widespread effects:

  • Reading along on your friends page, everything's great! everything's wonderful! Everyeixl akxm sunsiwec83/; qpxfa ecjlkp\]!
  • Doing anything on the site somehow causes your journal to be set to a journal style we don't even have.
  • Clicking on any lj user link causes you to come to (I am not making this one up. It really happened. Though not *quite* so widespread…)
