Signal Boost: Return of the DDoS

Originally posted by deathpixie at 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.

Phone a friend

So I just spent the past 2h53m on the phone with ratherastory and it was really amazing being able to talk meta with someone who knows what the hell I'm talking about.

YAY to le_maistre_e for introducing us.

Everything rawks! though my throat is now shot to hell.

not making much sense but really very tired and still haven't eaten my custard. Yes I made some for myself as well but didn't eat it. And I'm having it with trellis and lemon.

thank gods for lemon tea!

yay.. I makes a new friend.

BTW now up to 10 tabs.

All very cryptic, I know. deal.

An actual update... sorta

OK, this post is just a basic as to what this LJ is for me.

I have another LJ, kittyfinn and I use that one for the day to day. This LJ is friended to that one.

I have too many friends on either LJ to be able to keep track. If you have to check out who I am, then please check kittyfinn. This LJ won't give you much info besides what I like to read and who my flist is. I know it's a bit confusing, but it's the only way I can keep my head straight. :)

I am a huge slash addict and have been since forever. ;) Het doesn't do much for me (unless it's my SO *grins*). I love the pretty boys, and the things they do to my heart rate.

I started off with a lot of random, no fandom pr0n and then degenerated into this. HP, SG-1, Farscape (of which I haven't found much slash), SPN, and the list goes on. As you can tell I'm a bit of a fantasy whore. :) I do love my imagination to be totally pwned by it.

I'd love to beta as I don't have it in me to write, though I do have bunnies galore. I studied to be a proofer for books, so if you know of anyone looking for a beta or a PR'r, please let me know.

Starting over

So I'm starting this journal over.

I'm not gaining anything by trying to write in here, so I'll keep it for my pr0n friends and for keeping up with the pervy Joneses. :)

I so hope that I'll be able to get a few more entries in here than I have in the past year.

One never knows.
