Work was okay. I'm too tired to even talk about it though. I started getting a headache right around the time I was supposed to leave so that kind of sucked but at least I didn't have it all day. I'm not feeling very well though. Something is wrong with my body again. And between that and LJ still being fucked up, I'm just more stressed and depressed than before. I went from being in a good mood to worrying about what should be my happy place. I'm in the queue to have my LJ imported to Dreamwidth and instead of relaxing, I'm going to start going through my memories and scrapbook and download/save what I can before I have to go to sleep. I hate that I even have to think like that, but LJ is more than just casual to me and I don't know what I'd do if I lost everything.

I still have 11 DW invites so if you need one, just let me know! PM me your email and I'll send one your way :) Also, if you have a Dreamwidth account, can you link it to me? Or just come find me there. I'm Spacemonkeyluvn over there as well. I'm also Spacemonkeyluvn over on Twitter. And Warpedinside over at Tumblr.

I should figure out how to do the import thing.

That... statement has a lot of things wrong with it. LJ themselves stopped the Amazon link thing after the code got buggered up & people found out what they were doing & complained.

The DDos attack is huge and ongoing because LJ is such a big site -- it's like the Russian version of Facebook. See this article.

For the importing, once you're logged on to DW, go to and then you basically just follow the instructions and pick what you want imported.

I'll take a look at the link. I'm hearing things all over the place with conflicting information and from what I hear, the LJ staff isn't the most reliable anymore. I'm not planning on leaving LJ, but I am getting more and more nervous about its future. I figure a backup isn't a bad idea either way. I just have so much stuff saved that I don't even know where to start. I'd like to save fic to my computer, something I used to do but for some reason stopped doing.

I think I figured it out, thanks!

Pfffffft, the LJ staff was NEVER reliable. That just doesn't have any bearing on this situation, IMO.

I do not believe things said by "a friend of a friend" or a "friend of a friend's husband."

DDOS attacks cannot be stopped in two hours. If this guy knows how to stop them, let him offer his expertise to all the other sites that are attacked and brought down. In the past few months it's happened to Facebook and Twitter as well.

Monster is a computer systems professional. I told him what people have been saying about how LJ should be back up by now, and he laughed. He was like, "Yeah, in what fairy tale land is a site as big as LJ back up instantly during an ongoing DDOS attack?" Remember, this isn't just "one attack, and it's over." This is ongoing.

Backing up anything, including LJ and Facebook and Dreamwidth, is always a good idea, but I wouldn't be losing sleep over a rumour spread by someone who works for nameless companies and is a friend of a friend of someone I've never met and is probably just bragging to make himself look good.

Fair enough. And honestly, I don't know anything about this stuff. All I know is that more and more I'm getting uncomfortable with how things seem to be done around here. I'm not planning on leaving just yet. I've been here for few years and I've built a home here, so to speak. But if nothing else, it'll be good to have a back up of my journal.

I'm sorry you're feeling cruddy, again. *hugs* Hopefully, tomorrow will be a brighter, better day. Good luck!

I'd be interested in one of the Dreamwidth invites. I dunno, I've been paranoid about LJ just completely going to crap...and I need a place to bitch about things and post pictures and geek out. I'll probably use the same name over there, too.

I know what you mean. LJ is my place to vent, to geek out, talk to people I'd hopefully be friends with in RL if we lived anywhere near each other =)
