LJ is still D-E-D dead.

I'm posting this from lynx on my goathack still, just because I'm that addicted to LJ that I need to have access.

Read http://status.livejournal.org/ . Basically, the site got hit by tons of computers trying to download way too much stuff, and it died. Right now, about 1/4th of the internet is blocked so that LJ doesn't die itself. So, if you can't get there, you don't need to keep trying, it won't help.

I don't know when it will be back up. Neither does anyone else. The new siteadmin for LJ says: [12:17:49] <rahaeli> lisa calls this the most crippling DDoS she's ever dealt with.

This is bad shit, and everyone who is working with it is trying their ass off to get things fixed. This is NOT LJ's fault, i repeat, NOTHING has been done wrong by the site. However, some very determined people are very upset, and this is making the whole situation suck.

Good luck to all of you. UIUC kids, just hang in there. the site will be back when it can be, and until that, just sit and wait.

And while you're waiting: http://peanut.sytes.net/whyLJisdead.txt is from Rah's LiveJournal, just in case you can't get there. It's hilarious :)
