Grrrrr!

Fanfiction Net is glitching again. I've been trying to log in for the past hour with no success. I have only another hour or so before the withdrawal pangs start.

It did that to me. It wouldn't let me join again or log in.

Live Journal was under some kind of cyber-attack yesterday, and I sometimes couldn't even get the pages to load. I wonder if it's FFN's turn?

At any rate, I hope this isn't like the infamous three-day glitch of a few months ago.

I think it still is, according to their latest announcement.

Ahhh! I know! I miss everyone so much and I can't reply to NiRi's PMs that she sent last night... I'm already under withdrawal pangs cause I was out all yesterday and couldn't talk to anyone... :(
It better load...

I, too, have several items of pressing business to which I must attend. I am currently moving from yellow to orange on the Antsy Scale (TM).

Angtsy scale? I like it, but how exactly do you measure that??

'Antsy' -- as in a variation of 'ants in the pants', nervous and edgy.

Little kids get antsy when they're bored or you need to feed them. And I, being deprived of my favorite toy, am antsy.

As am I... mom had real problems with me today and I couldn't tell her why.

Is it the items of business that have you changing colors? Or are you angsting due to withdrawal symptoms?

Both. Although, assuming one were posting a multi-chapter story one day at a time, being unable to post the next chapter would cause mucho frustration.

Yeah... and I'll send you a reply when I can. But I also need to speak to Oberon and I would love to defend myself before Bard thinks about the stuff that came out last night too much... It would be nice. :P

Er . . . what? Stuff came out last night? Why am I always the last to learn these things? LOL

I'd like to be able to issue a courteous welcome to Oberon myself.

Do you really want me to start ranting?? Just going to warn you before I do. :P NiRi's the only one you talk to who would know.
I'd like to squeeze her and then do a happy dance. Bard cant kick us ALL of her forum and all but one person has posted/ is lurking at your forum. :)

Feel free to rant, if you like. I took a quick peek at Bard's forum and found what I think you're talking about. Something about fanon and Oberon and 'burning hatred'. LOL

I'm interested in knowing what Oberon told this newbie. I spent my first year of fanfiction writing unlearning bad fanon I'd learned at the PPC and GAFF.

I noticed. :S Maybe they're installing some shiny new toy for us to play with?

I'm tired of the shiny toys. I just want a site that works. But I'm afraid it's more of the DDos.

That's what I'm afraid of. Why do people feel the need to make mischief like that?

Why would they attack lj? It's hardly crucial. FFN is probably less well-guarded than places like E-Bay and Amazon dot Com.

If this isn't an attack -- if it's just more farting around giving us an extra chart on our profiles -- I wish they'd quit. :(

This had better not be another 3 day down time! I have review replies to do! :(

I have more than that to do -- and I just learned I'll be away tomorrow. -__-

Hi, there! Yo know, we do so need a good forum site besides FFN where one could withdraw in such emergencies. :)

Maybe they are installing a new wonder-feature again, or maybe the site is under attack, now, that Facebook, LJ and Twitter are finally working again.

On another note: first day of my vacation, and I am soooooooo glad I won't have to work on Monday (I hope). ^^

Well, about the only really useful thing they've given us recently is our asterisks back. I could do without all the fancy charts about who's been visiting my forum and such.

I hope you got a chance to sleep nice and late.

Those are nice, though. But I would not want to pay for them with the site being three days down, again.

I hope you got a chance to sleep nice and late.

Absolutely! And I managed to choose a place to stay when I leave town, week after next week, and did a lot of neglected housework. And otherwise I did absolutely nothing, today. Which was pretty much needed. ^^

I had to get up early and place buckets (it rained again) and then mop. And then I haven't been able to do anything else, what with FFN down.

Aw, darn. :( I am so sorry to hear your roof is leaking again. Is there any chance to find out where it is coming from, and fix that point specifically? It may get worse once winter comes again. :(

And then I haven't been able to do anything else, what with FFN down.

It's a real addiction, isn't it? I wonder how I will manage that week I will be incommunicado (no forums, no e-mail, no Internet). I expect I will be suffering from severe withdrawal the first few days. ;)

The situation with our roof is so complicated, I can barely explain. Finding the leak will be very hard. I'm ready to headdesk.

I have things that need to be posted. *sigh*

Hu? On FFN? You mean a certain chapter you wish to post, or is there an ongoing Internet war I do not have noticed? Of course, in that case, the other side would be locked out, too, at the moment. -__-
