07:54 am - lj problems
The denial of service attack has more or less kept me off lj for a week. I managed to connect briefly once or twice in that time, to see that other people were apparently managing to post.

Anyway I can't believe that the whole wretched Russian state has decided to use its technical weight to wreck my harmless little playground. Bastards. They can get stuffed.

I have some free time today which I will spend looking into mirroring up on Dreamwidth, where I have an empty account. I won't stop posting to lj though, because I'm buggered if those gits are going to drive me out.

I logged in to DW in my other name just to see where everyone was, and have made some desultory efforts to set up a circle of friends and personalise my journal. But I really don't want to bother with it unless I absolutely have to. I'm well fed up with the Russian government.

I assume it's Putin's mob, anyway. Like you I hardly want to bother, I just want to wallow in my inertia. I've got enough to worry about without changing hosts.

My aim is to post on DW as I always do and to continue cross-posting to LJ, but I'm now determined to keep a paid account on LJ because it's the only way to help them combat the Russian government.

Just noting that that article is dated April, so it's probably talking about the last DDoS.

Agreed - I'll do a backup, just in case, but this has just made me LESS inclined to go anywhere else...

I'm not planning to abandon LJ, despite mostly cross-posting between LJ and DW these days. My latest posts weren't cross-posted and were on LJ only simply because LJ does photo-hosting, via Scrapbook, and DW doesn't, and I haven't sussed out other sites for that. I'll give it a week or so and probably import my full LJ to DW, just in case, and I think it's probably worth waiting a few days, as I expect there's probably a backlog of imports queued up, but I want to stay in the LJ playground, and I think rumours of its death are premature.

I'm glad LJ is back, and yeah, stuff the bastards who vandalised the playground.

I am very glad that you feel the same, and all of us do

Some years ago, when the pound was strong and the dollar wasn't (happy days), I splashed out on a permanent account, and I'm damned if I'm going to give it up before I've had my moneys worth!

That said, setting up my empty DW thingy seems prudent. Are you the same name over there?

Yes, and I am hoping everyone else is too. But I have been writing my iGCSE book today, and I haven't done anything about DW despite what I said.

My philosophy too.

Although Dreamwidth is my preferred place to post (because I like their search engine), I intend to renew my LJ account (as well as my DW account) as soon as I can afford to because I want them to be able to resist future DDOS attacks.

They seem to be back functioning at 100% now, thank goodness
