Livejournal  
Livejournal has been under a DDoS Attack again on tuesday night. Thank god I'm not feeling it that much this time. I missed checking back here. I missed you guys.

Anyways, since none of us know what will happen, maybe it's not a bad thing to have a journal backup. So if any of you guys need dreamwidth invites, I have 11 invite codes.

LiveJournal, Russia's blogging platform of choice, is sustaining biggest cyberattack attack in its history. Bloggers say the Kremlin wants to crack down on political discussion.


"LiveJournal, Russia’s most popular blogging platform, has been under a massive DDoS attack for the past few days. The attack has effectively wiped out Russia’s main refuge for unbridled political discussion, a hugely lively and extensive domain frequented by politicians, opposition activists and social commentators alike...


“The reason for attack is more than clear in this case — someone wants LiveJournal to disappear as a platform,” Ilya Dronov, development director at SUP, wrote in a post on his LiveJournal blog earlier this week. He said the hackers were hoping to push bloggers from LJ to social networks where “it's easier to fight individual users.”"

I've never considered Dreamwidth before, but I'd like an invite now, if that's okay? Just in case.
[identity profile] elli.livejournal.com on April 8th, 2011 09:25 am (UTC)
Give me your email adress please :)
[identity profile] book232.livejournal.com on April 8th, 2011 09:33 am (UTC)
Oops, sorry, forgot. Just send it to my username at livejournal dot com. :D
[identity profile] elli.livejournal.com on April 8th, 2011 10:21 am (UTC)
sent :) And I didn't not it, so you could not know to give me your mail adress.
[identity profile] book232.livejournal.com on April 8th, 2011 10:28 am (UTC)
Got it, thank you! :)
[identity profile] elli.livejournal.com on April 8th, 2011 11:00 am (UTC)
You are welcome!

If you wouldn't mind, that'd be great. I tried DW at the very beginning and didn't like it, but if this is going to continue, then a backup would be great.

I sent the invite. I'm not so happy with it myself but I'm learning and tweaking the layout and stuff so hopefully I will be able to modify it to be the way I want it to be.

Sent the invite :)

Thank you! :D

Yeah, no, I think the problem was that I didn't really try very hard to adapt to it, as I already had LJ and so it was more of a "well I'll see what everyone is talking about" kind of thing, rather than "this might come in handy one day so I should probably learn my way around properly".
[identity profile] elli.livejournal.com on April 8th, 2011 11:21 am (UTC)
:)

I think it was the same for me. I never really bothered to do much with it. I don't like the layout a lot and tweaking the styles was so much harder and then most people are still here :D

My backup is at insanejournal and has been for years (I have a permanent account there). :)
[identity profile] elli.livejournal.com on April 8th, 2011 03:21 pm (UTC)
You know..I might be having an account there as well. I relly have no idea!

It seems like everytime I want to check LJ and have the time to do that, LJ is down again so it's been definitely annoying. With everything that's going on I just hope that it gets better soon. Even though I don't want to leave LJ, your post did make me realize that I should check out my DW account and luckily it still works. It never hurts to have a backup. Did you also transfer all your posts there or is it completely new and clean?
[identity profile] elli.livejournal.com on April 8th, 2011 03:22 pm (UTC)
I hope it gets better soon too. I haveb't been able to import my journal. But then we are supposed to wait so that lj servers don't suffer more. I will try again in a week or so.

You have a dw account?
[identity profile] fly-meaway.livejournal.com on April 8th, 2011 03:41 pm (UTC)
That is a good point you make there, we don't want the LJ servers to suffer even more. I just hope that things calm down from now on, that would be way more ideal.

Yes, I have a DW account. Same name as my LJ account. I didn't do anything with the account though, but I claimed my LJ name there back then as I wanted the same name just in case.
[identity profile] elli.livejournal.com on April 11th, 2011 01:34 pm (UTC)
Exactly. I think they stopped the whole import cue now. Very smart.

And I added you :D
