And now, a glitch very similar to the one I freaked out about earlier is happening - I can't access any page on LJ that begins with www.livejournal.com now. So individual journals and profiles work (except certain stylesheets are missing so they look different), but not my inbox or things like that.

I'm very scared right now. I'm pretty sure LJ is going to go down forever at any moment. :O

...wait, it works now. But still, I'm getting scared now. :O

Well, I meant URLs that don't have a journal name or "community" at the beginning.

If all the URLs are becoming without www now, I hope that doesn't mean there's going to be even MORE broken images and links in my journal soon O_O

I actually use Internet Explorer most of the time (cue people hating me for that...), but I use Chrome for things that don't work properly in IE. That's the current state of affairs, anyway - every so often I switch back and forth between default browsers. At one point I used Firefox a lot (but it's not even on my current computer) and at one point I used Chrome a lot.

Its probably lj being a picky booger again.

It's been doing that more often than usual lately, though... or maybe I've just had bad luck and happened to be on the site the two times it happened recently.

LJ is not going anywhere, glitches happen. Don't worry. :)

Over the past couple years the internet has been changing quite a bit. One of the technical changes is in the web addresses, like how http is being weeded out for https. Along with this, a good number of websites are ditching the www. at the beginning entirely. It makes for a slightly shorter and cleaner looking web address, but functionality is the same. If LJ is weeding it out as well, bumps in the road are likely as file paths change. Some browsers also play nicer with this than others, which could also explain the inconsistencies you mentioned.

Deep breaths, friend :)

The glitches I had may not have had to do with the www thing, though, seeing as there was one instance before this entry when I was unable to access any URL beginning with matt1993.livejournal.com but anything beginning with www.livejournal.com, pathvain-aelien.livejournal.com, community.livejournal.com, etc. worked fine.

(Though I know what you mean. The https thing is what finally motivated me back in September 2017 to start fixing that and everything else I'd wanted to fix all of my entries, even though the https glitch itself was finally fixed three weeks later.)

Deep breaths, friend :)

Thanks :)

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…
