All week, I’ve been fighting with LJ, willing it to work. By this morning, I was frustrated and had had enough.
Here’s some of the story behind what happened: http://www.time.com/time/world/article/0,8599,2063952,00.html I decided to import my LJ posts to a wordpress site. As I was at work, a friend volunteered to keep watch on LJ, and the moment it became accessible, take care of this for me.
So now there is another site where you can follow me: http://theofenraven.wordpress.com/
I love LJ, but this has not been a good year for the service. This is only the latest in a string of nasty attacks, though this was by far the worst. As I paid for this account, I plan to hang on to it. For now. I will post in both places, see how that goes. Eventually, unfortunately, I may move away from LJ altogether. Stability in a blogging site is important, and LJ has had a hell of a time with that this year.
I wish them well in their endeavors to strengthen security against DDoS attacks. In a perfect world, they wouldn’t happen. As we all know, this is not a perfect world.
