Signal Boost: Return of the DDoS

For those wanting to know more about the recent DDoS attacks, yes, it looks like it was the Russian government trying to shut down the dissidents again.

As I said last time, while it's frustrating not to have access, LJ is a lot more than a social network platform. From the article:

"LiveJournal isn’t just a social network. It’s also a platform for organizing civic action. Dozens of network projects and groups mobilize people to solve specific problems — from defending the rights of political prisoners to saving endangered historic architecture in Moscow."

So while I know many are considering the move over to Dreamwidth and other such sites, supporting LJ is a way we can help support those who use it for more than a writing/roleplaying/social venue.


Also, as a FYI, LJ is giving paid users effected by the outage two weeks of paid time as compensation.

Well, Frell Me Dead

I'm going to the final Farscape Con in November.

*makes guppy like faces*

Holy crap!

Now to plan my ass-kissing schedule for mom for the weeks preceding the con to make up for the 12 hour drive (3 hours each way) she'll have to do in order to get me to the nearest airport and then picking me up after the con. Though I think it may be better to attempt to convince her to let me use the pick-up and drive myself and keep it in the long term parking over the weekend.

OMG!OMG! I get to go to the Farscape con! Chair Dance
