...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.

At least it's back for me. :)

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.

Oct. 22nd, 2018 11:10 pm (UTC)
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...

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...

For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
