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.

Little things that irritate me.

Things that irritate me but aren't actually important:

* Saggy pants. PULL YOUR FUCKING PANTS UP, GODDAMN IT! NOBODY WANTS TO SEE YOUR FUCKING UNDERWEAR! There's this wonderful invention, called a belt, that will help you keep your pants up. And if regular pants are too tight for you, WEAR A KILT! Get a kilt from Utilikilts, or one of the several companies that makes Goth kilts, and nobody will dare think you less a man.

* Adults and older teenagers riding bikes made for 1st graders. GET A GODDAMN BIKE MADE FOR SOMEONE YOUR OWN SIZE, YOU FUCKTARDS! DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW IDIOTIC YOU LOOK!?!?

* People riding bikes on sidewalks when there are bike lanes on the roads. YOU'RE GONNA RUN SOMEONE OVER IF YOU DON'T GET OFF THE DAMN SIDEWALK! AND IF IT'S ME YOU RUN OVER, I WILL SUE! (Actually, it should be illegal to ride a bike on a sidewalk when there's a bike lane on the street.)

* People riding bikes without helmets; people riding bikes AT NIGHT without headlights and blinky lights. SHOULD BE ILLEGAL IF IT'S NOT ALREADY. Fine them $100 for this, every time they do it.

And people yelling at their kids in public for no good reason make me tempted to tell them to stop or I'll report them for child abuse.

MY HEAD HURTS SO I AM GRUMPY AND I CAN'T TAKE PAIN RELIEVER AGAIN, IT'S TOO SOON. Damn morning headaches.
