LIVEJOURNAL IS DOWN

LIVEJOURNAL IS DOWN NOW. NO. NO. NO. NOW ABOUT A THIRD OF MY ENTRIES ON DW ARE GOING TO BE MESSED UP FOREVER!!!!


...okay, so it MIGHT just be a temporary outage, but the fact that I can't get on LJ from either IE or Chrome right now is making me panic anyway.

EDIT: It's back. I think.

Things like that are normal. They aren't forever. Again, if LJ were to shut down, they wouldn't do it overnight. They would have to give advance warning to paid users and they would have an end date sometime in the future given. So when an outage happens, relax.

I found myself looking up how to get rid of that error message. Five minutes later, I discovered that it did not work! Since I wanted to go out and get something anyway, I did that. THANK GOODNESS LJ WAS BACK WHEN I GOT HOME AN HOUR AGO!

Yeah, things like this are just TERRIFYING to me. Especially since this happened the day after I discovered that something very similar happened on YouTube last week. (read the comments) Which apparently lasted for less than an hour, but that was still long enough to make EVERYONE freak out about it. I'm surprised I didn't notice it at all... did I even try to get on YouTube that day?

I can't trust ANY website to not suddenly go down with no warning now!

At least this is finally giving me more motivation to work on fixing my LJ and DW entries. Which I am STILL only up to 2013 on after over a year. WHY IS THIS TAKING SO LONG???



And now I had to type this whole comment twice because LJ wouldn't let me post it the first time...

Yeah, Youtube was down for about an hour or so last week ALL OVER THE WORLD! I had to content myself with the postgame show after the hockey game! (which is fine, but even I can only listen to so much bitching from Tweets and radio callers...)

No, I wouldn't trust websites to never have this kind of thing happening, but this is the first that I've noticed out of Youtube, anyway. So there's hope!

I call it "real life getting in the way," which happens too much to me. :P

I'm wondering just exactly how it happened that I didn't notice YouTube going down that day at ALL and only knew about it from those comments on that video... I guess I just must not have gotten on YouTube that day but I get on there fairly often, so...

It's scary that it happened to YouTube, and then it happened to LiveJournal... Will it happen to any other website? Or YouTube or LJ again?

I use Youtube as background music all the time, so I was pretty much in the loop myself. Not that it's a bad thing you weren't, of course. :)

I cannot tell you the answer to that, my friend.

I use YouTube as background music a lot, too - I guess the day YouTube went down just happened to be one of the few days I didn't get on YouTube? *shrug*

That definitely could happen! Sometimes life gets way too busy!

Lj usually comes back shortly.  I dont know why it does that.

Yeah, it came back for me too. It's never been down for me for that long without warning before... or at least I don't remember it happening...

I'm depressed. Because the world is ending and there has not been ANY proof that things will ever get better. I'm unable to think about anything except the fact that the world is ending, no matter how hard I try

I hate, hate, hate, HATE the term "social distancing". And being reminded of the coronavirus in any other way.

That's my entire personality now. And it will be until our world is back to normal.

Please read this entry before you comment on ANY entry in my journal about the coronavirus: https://matt1993.livejournal.com/373852.html

    They probably won't be mandatory forever, but you still have to wear them.

    I thought I told you that I DO wear a mask whenever I am required to or am told to. Why are you acting like I don't?…

    Looking back at the Spanish Flu pandemic, it obviously wasn't like that forever. I don't know if people had problems with being able to adjust.

    They probably won't be mandatory forever, but you…

    well before the pandemic, youre supposed to wash your hands before you eat, and after youve been to the toilet. Or if youve got something on your hands. Thats all.

    With the pandemic, its an add on…

    Even before this pandemic I've tried to wash my hands whenever I needed to - but I've never been sure if I'm doing so well enough or often enough. :(

    but this is now our new normal.

    As I said to arcadia30 above, I'm tired of hearing "new normal" because it implies that it will be like this forever and/or that I'm a bad person for being unable to…
