02:50 pm - To my hostees...

There's some sort of problem going on at Dreamhost that's affecting everything running off of magatsu.net at the moment. They're aware of it and are working on it; that's all I know. With luck, it'll be resolved soon. :) You can still FTP into your accounts, you just can't see the webserver.

I'm going to my grandparents' house this weekend, so I may not be reachable too easily, but I'll be back by Monday.

03:31 pm

I'm not going to be leaving Livejournal for the forseeable future - the same sort of thing that's going on here will inevitably go on at other journal sites eventually, and the vast majority of my f-list isn't decamping, anyway.

I've got an InsaneJournal (as telophase, natch) that I'm going to be using to store an online backup of my LJ - I'd use my Journalfen account for that, but JF has that over-18 rule and I know that at least some of my readers are under 18. I'll probably archive art over there or something. Or just continue to use it for nothing but commenting on the wank communities. At any rate, I also have an LJArchive archive that's got all the posts and comments from my LJ archived on my FTP server, because if you don't have at least two different backups stored in two different places, you don't have a backup.

Not on GreatestJournal because some bastard took the name telophase over there and never used the account, so its deleted and the GJ admins don't clear them out and don't want you asking to clear them out. I thought said bastard might have been me, reserving the name and forgetting the password, but using the Lost Password function produces no mail in any of my inboxes, so I suppose it's some other bastard.

P.S. If you do happen to want to decamp to Journalfen, as a paid user over there (name: telophase) I can request that a journal be made for someone. I can't abuse the privilege, though, so not too many at once. :) If you want one, give me the name you want, an email address, and a solemn pledge that you are (a) at least 18 years old and (b) not an asshat.
