DW authentication

Hello,

Sorry if my question is offtopic in this community, but it doesn't seem like your dev question thread is very active, so I'll take my chances and ask here. I'm trying to programmatically download DW posts from my journal and have troubles accessing friends-only and private posts. Suppose I have the following request:

GET https://ari-linn.dreamwidth.org/545896.html?format=light&expand_all=1 HTTP/1.1
Host: ari-linn.dreamwidth.org


It results in an error page: "You need to be logged in to see this content." Read further about my trials and tribulations )

Is there any way I can programmatically login to DW to access private posts?

Dreamwidth Development AMA for June

One of the things I want to start doing on a semi-regular basis is encouraging people to come to me with any questions they have about Dreamwidth development, large or small. I want to do this in two ways: for people who prefer real time chat, I have started holding IRC office hours, and for people who prefer threaded comment discussions, use this post as a springboard!

You can ask me absolutely anything related to Dreamwidth and I will answer to the best of my ability. Don't be shy! This is slightly different from the existing monthly question threads in that I will take responsibility for giving at least an initial answer, which others can then expound upon or contradict as they see fit.

If you would like to take advantage of my office hours, http://karzilla.dreamwidth.org/tag/devchat is where to find information about my schedule and how to sign up.

Chrome on Android's font boost

There are certain pages that are unreadable in parts in Chrome on Android, including anything in format=light or more importantly site style. Mobile Chrome has a "feature" called font boost, where any paragraph over a certain length gets enlarged, leaving the rest of the site too small to read. This frequently applies, for example, to a journal post with comments. This is a problem. It applies both to any link from www.dreamwidth.org/mobile/read, and also to following a link from an email notification to a journal post where someone has chosen to display journal entries in site style, which is something I like to do quite often on my phone.

Is there any good way to improve this? Stackoverflow has various hacky CSS fixes, like setting the max-height for the page to something large, but ideally we'd want to limit it to Chrome on Android rather having unintended effects in other browsers.

Is this a valid bug to log, since it makes Dreamwidth pages unreadable on Chrome on Android, or should it go via suggestions since it's mitigating for Google's broken system?
