This sounds like a good idea. Actually it's easy enough to set up a comm so we know we'll be able to go there in August if we have to.

I'm wondering if we ought to run naarmamo here too in August.

I'm a bit surprised it's taking so long to sort out. I can see my flist if I access it via Internet Explorer, but I can't post or comment; and if I go in via Firefox, I can't load any pages at all. I realise they had a data crash, but it's been partially functioning for several days now, and I thought they'd sort things out faster than that. And it's deeply frustrating watching conversation than only some people can join in with when I'm not one of them!

On the other hand, presumably it'sd a ort of one-off thing, and could just as easily happen to DW as to LJ.

It's another DDOS attack--LJ announced it on their facebook page this AM.
I'm back to getting most pages now but not all. I am definitely getting more work done.

I feel differently about DDOS attacks. They have my full support in that case (and I also understand now why it's so hard for them to restoree normal service).

However, I'm glad I've got DW as a back-up so I'm not COMPLETELY cut off from everybody.

We're near the end of this month's picowrimo, but for November, I think we should set up a DW option with the understanding that we all move over here if LJ becomes inaccessible again.

I wonder if there is a permanent fix for concentrated DDOS attacks--I suppose identifying the perpetrators would be a start.

We don't want you to feel lonely!

An option to move over if there's another attack in November would be sensible.

I haven't done any more work on the story anyway - I've had to use the writing time for the translation (if I ever get offered another musical, I won't charge double my usual rates, I'll charge five times as much. And if I'm ever offered a complete musical to do, as opposed to a few extra songs, kick me hard if I look like I'm going to accept). I know it counts as writing, but as the deadline's Monday, I'd have got it written even without Pico (and, in fact, I did).

I have been lonely though :-( *bats eyelashes for sympathy*

Awww. You know you'll say yes!

The writer's sad lot. :D

I see on their status page that they've finally admitted it's yet another denial of service attack, so it wouldn't happen on DW unless that Russian dissident move over there.

Maybe there won't be a naarmamo this year. Even if I set up a comm here, how could I tell people?

You're not stupid! It's a month of daily art I do in August, rather like picowrimo except that you're meant to do one piece a day. I doubt it will happen now. I might email the mod.

August
