Well, that freaked me out. I wish we'd been told in advance that LJ was going to be down for four hours today while they moved their servers to Montana! As it was, I had to go a little crazy to find the information, and was actually forced to spend a little time on - ick - Facebook.

I know a lot of people on my flist have sent stuff or done stuff or zombie-pirate-bit-hugged me or asked me to do stuff with them on Facebook. I have to say, though, that I don't UNDERSTAND Facebook. And I don't visit that site more than once every three months. So please don't be offended if I don't bite your pirate zombie cat for peace or whatever, because I don't know what I'm doing over there.

Anyway, I'm now going to get back to getting serious about backing up ALL my LJ posts. Because the realization that they could simply disappear forever one day, and that I'm totally at the mercy of a Russian company that I don't trust is very scary to me.

They did warn us.
Putting the time in some strange non-UTC timezone and leaving us to guess what the local nickname for it meant insteadt of giving the UTC offset was pretty silly, but the warning was there.

They did tell us. They posted it in the News community, posted it in the logon screen stuff and sent it out in the email newsletter. I'm not sure how you didn't hear that it was going to be down, really.

Facebook - not worth it. End of story.

Maybe I opted out of the newsletter. I'll have to check that.
