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

I was a little pissed that none of my sites were working...and when I heard it was to shut one person up I became sort of mystified. I hear that LJ is working for some people, though. Early yesterday morning I could get it to load a few times out of sheer determination and two of my friends had no problem with it...

Except some of us are still blocked! I had lj back briefly on Thursday night, but it was gone again on Friday morning. The difference was that this time down for everyone or just me? claimed that it *was* just me. Someone on my flist had the same problem and fixed it after resetting his router and IP address (I tried the same thing and not only failed to fix the problem, but also screwed up my secured network -- oops). A few other people responded to one of his lj/dw cross-posts that they too can't get on LJ. Did some of us get selectively blocked?? So weird! I don't even live in the same country as the guy on my flist. I've been Googling, but it seems that no one out there is talking about this...

Livejournal has been back up for me since around 9 PM EST. I'm hoping that it's back for good, lets see.
