SWEET SMELL OF ADDICTION
I couldn't get on to LJ all day and had to...gasp...WORK. Oh, the humanity! I can't figure out why I couldn't get on...I didn't have any trouble with any other websites, and it's working just fine at home and I'm pretty sure they didn't block it because they always have a firewall page when they do, so wtf?

Life without LJ is so...dull.

heh

Well, I still can't post, tells me that the server in my location is doing maintenance or some such crap, but I can't believe that MY location and YOUR location are that much different.


but I can't believe that MY location and YOUR location are that much different.

In fact, it's quite likely -- Livejournal is made up of several clusters which in turn is made up of several servers -- with over a 3 million accounts and over half of those active, they've built a very distributed system and the fact that you're both physically in Sweden has no bearing on which server/cluster you're each a part of. See also: http://www.livejournal.com/misc/whereami.bml

Anyhow, the root of all this slowness, etc is that Livejournal has been under a Denial of Service attack -- http://status.livejournal.org/ (ORG not COM) is a completely different site set up so when this happens (as it does periodically) they post there to let folks know what's going on.

Hopefully things will be returning back to normal SOON :)

LJ difficulties

The last few days I've been pretty hurried when checking LJ ... and wouldn't ya know it! It's been real slow and acting weird.. difficult to post, etc..
Sometimes it won't let me see a conversation/other's comment, etc..

Re: LJ difficulties

ohmigod, did you see thqt! you're under qttqck by the Q's! They qre still working on the tqkeover of the qlphqbet, I see. Qmqzing how persistent those little buggers qre!

It hasn't worked for me today either untill now.


http://status.livejournal.org/ is your friend :)

Basically, LJ has been under DOS attack :(

Thanks! I actually tried to get to that site earlier today after finding it on Google, but all I could access was an older cached version of it. :(

Well, there was a time when even status.livejournal.org was down, but it wasn't down nearly as much as livejournal.com itself was.

Isn't it though? Now you now how I felt the other day. I wish I could do it at work but I don't want to get fired for it.

NO, that would be bad. :) I'm careful when I'm at work :)
