janie_tangerine: (firefly 2.0)
Hi, LJ, I hope you're back. Also please work properly for me, PLEASE.

Anyway: dearest hackers who decided to fuck with free speech in Russia, thanks for making me lose sleep I didn't need to lose/turn a thing that'd have taken twenty minutes at most into something that took... about ten hours? By the way, I'm so confused by this thing that I can't even.

The facts: yesterday was my day for posting my [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang story. And all right. I go to my computer at 10 AM, do my neat notebook files with the A/N and the header and shit, do the PDF and then try posting. I get 500 internal server errors. I try until lunch time. I keep getting server errors. I give up on LJ and try to use Semagic - it posted one of the side-posts, but nothing of the story. And it started giving me server errors too. At five PM I give it up and head out since I had a concert, figuring that five hours would be enough for LJ to fix itself, would they.

Cue to: I get back home at one AM. I keep getting internal server errors. At some point I switch from desktop to netbook and while LJ still didn't work, Semagic apparently did and I managed to post the story and cross-post it to the main comm. I'm done at two-something AM. Then I try to catch up on some comments, and half an hour later I get told that one of the parts doesn't work. I go there - it doesn't load. I go on edit entry - the entire chapter is actually THERE. I try to copy/paste it from the document and see if it works - guess what? Internal server error. I try to break it up in two and use Semagic both for doing a new entry and the two separate entries - nothing except the stupid 500 server error. At that point I try to see if I can edit the masterpost at least - turns out that I can. So I go and post the incriminated chapter on Dreamwidth and edit the links temporarily - and crash into bed at four-something AM. Today, after oversleeping like nothing else, I get back on LJ. Same thing, 500 errors included. I give it up and get lunch. Then I get back to the incriminated post now. IT ACTUALLY LOADS. With the entire content. But I had messed the html for the link to the epilogue and I had forgotten to close a tag, so I figure I can try to fix it since now it works, right?

I get internal server error. *facepalm* I guess I can ignore it a couple hours longer, but I was hoping not to have one fifth of a story on DW when the rest is all on LJ when crossposting. Also because you can't get on the DW link from part III (I can't edit that one either because of 500 errors) but only from the master post.

Really, I don't blame LJ a bit, but I'm about ready to give up on understanding what the hell is up. Though really, never been so happy that I have that back up DW account. *glares at hackers*

Brb trying to fix it again. And at least it isn't as long as last year's because otherwise it'd have meant more parts and I'd still be at stage one.

janie_tangerine: (wtf)
So, that server LJ crash basically killed the Rome server or whatever it was since it hasn't worked for a day since yesterday. Which means I have a day's worth of comments to answer and entries to reply, which means I will probably catch up tomorrow and spam you all tomorrow afternoon with all the stuff I couldn't post yesterday/today. Also because I think me and my friend managed to put some vacation together and next week I'll probably be off for five days even if I should have internet access. Anyway, I'll blather more about that tomorrow. For now, er, sorry for not answering comments until now. *kicks LJ and disables comments since I have too many already*
