Clusterf*cked [May. 16th, 2013|03:59 pm]
I've finally had to install the Semagic LJ client as a result of the Great LJ Clusterf*ck of 2013. I haven't been able to update with the usual online tool or the one on the LJ Portal, so there's nothing from yesterday. A comment on the maintenance post said that we could still update with Semagic, so here I am. I probably should have installed it ages ago anyway. Anybody know how to enlarge the font, though? It's tiny and I can barely see it, and can't find any instructions on how to make it bigger.

I've totally forgotten what I was going to write yesterday, but it probably wasn't very important anyway. I do remember that yesterday was much cooler, and around midnight we finally began to get a few sprinkles. Today is cooler still, and the air still feels damp though there hasn't been any rain since I woke up. The overcast is quite nice. I'd enjoy it more if I weren't feeling so muddleheaded this afternoon. My head seems muddled more and more frequently these days. Maybe I should try eating something.

Here goes. I hope this posts. I hope it says what I think it says, it being almost invisible and all.

Oh, I wondered what happened! Thought it might be another Russian DOS attack.

Turns out I'm in #7, Bratwurst. Figures.

I'm on Bratwurst, too, so I among the first to lose the the ability to post, on Wednesday afternoon. This official explanation of the event suggests that I could have lost the ability to load my friends page, too, but I never did. Apparently nobody posting anything to my friends page at the time was on cluster 7 or cluster 9. If LJ had still been as busy as it was a few years ago, I probably would have gotten 501 errors for my friends page as well as for my update page and journal pages.

There's still no explanation for how the clusters got corrupted to begin with, though. I hope it wasn't something that's going to recur.
