Lost my marbles ...
First of all, here's my opinion on the recent LJ problems:



A German supermarket gives you a marble for every 15 Euros you spend there and if they expected me to go on a shopping spree they might be disappointed, because all but one of the marbles on the picture were given to me by a couple who didn't want theirs. I think it's a seriously silly way to try and make people buy more, but they DO represent my opinion quite well ;-)

Did someone die?
I mean, did someone important die?

Why I think that? Well, I didn't have time to read the LJ f-list this morning and when I tried to catch up now LJ was down. Yeah, not a big problem, I'll live. But then I went on twitter to bitch about it when I wanted to reply to friends bitching about it too Twitter went down too. And since I know how crazy things went when Michael Jackson died I do wonder what the reason for this problem could be.

Maybe I should switch on the news? Or maybe I should just get a book and an iced coffee and spend my unexpected free time in the garden. Yes, that sounds better.


Mmmh, I was just thinking, maybe Twitter was crashed by annoyed LJers, because, isn't it around the time when people in the USA, Canada, South America ... check their f-lists before going to work?


ETA: The problems are obviously caused by DoS attacks on the servers of several big social networking sites ... I wonder who could be interrested in these sites going down. I might have a few ideas and they don't involve bored teenagers.

Space, the final frontier ...
... these are the voyages of Captain Charon and Doctor Marco ... who boldly go where no man has gone before and tried to get in a Star Trek showing without pre-ordered tickets. Cause their bloody pre-order thingy was down.

*dramatic music*

And suceeded!!! Yiha! And it was totally worth it too. Loved the movie! :D

Ok, I think since there was a problem with the system no one was able to pre-order and some people probably didn't try to get the tickets directly at the counter instead. But still ... we had mentally planned a boring night at the pub already.



On other news:
Lost: Something bloody and final needs to happen to Kate. I'm so bored of her. Also, Ben's status of resident bad ass is in danger and I'm not sure if I approve of that.

I noticed last night that I haven't posted any icon sets this year. When did real life become too busy to make icons? I'm back in the mood now though ... although, I will never be able to watch Angels and Demons and keep a straight face, not after all the Spanish Inquisition quotes that came in my mind while working on my icons.

LJ: I'm probably just stupid, but ... did they change to comment setting? Because I used to get my comments mailed and that was it. Now they are aditionally showing up in my inbox and I can't find a way to get that back to normal. Comments mailed - yes, Comments in the inbox - No

DW: I has a Flexible Squares layout!!! Thanks to [personal profile] eumelkeks who was linked by someone to a link that linked to ... well, you get the idea ... *lol*
