for those of you who don't know, an unknown person/group disliked A SINGLE USER so much that they attacked multiple websites yesterday. twitter, google, and facebook have recovered, but good ol' livejournal has not. this is both hilarious and annoying, obviously.

an in-depth look at the situation can be found here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/8189162.stm

Ooh, that reminds me... I have 4 invites available for whomever wants one!

I'm also finally back up on LJ, hopefully for good, but not by any intervention of my own. They did eventually update their off-site status page. I know they were probably still dealing with a lot of fallout from the attacks and busy with that, but having worked in an extremely high-paced and stressful customer service environment, I know just how quickly frustration can be dealt with by letting people know that you know they're having a problem and you're working on fixing it. Uncertainty and confusion just drives most people batty, and it can be a deceptively simple thing to deal with. /2cents
