For those of you who can read this webpage, congratulations. Fortunately, since I'm lazy about this newfangled blarghing thing, I didn't actually post. Yeah, I know, All of you applauded that strategic decision. I'm sorry to disappoint all of you for returning. Anyway, it appears that LJ had outgrown its britches, and also suffered a DDoS attack. Well, to make up for it, they're offering free time to people who paid, thus hoping for a level of service they were unable to deliver. That is very nice of them, since like most of the software industry, they sell this service as is (which seems to let those like Microsoft off the hook when introducing new features that can compromise your system). They appear to also be offering two months free to those who buy now.
