For those wanting to know more about the recent DDoS attacks, yes, it looks like it was the Russian government trying to shut down the dissidents again.

As I said last time, while it's frustrating not to have access, LJ is a lot more than a social network platform. From the article:

"LiveJournal isn’t just a social network. It’s also a platform for organizing civic action. Dozens of network projects and groups mobilize people to solve specific problems — from defending the rights of political prisoners to saving endangered historic architecture in Moscow."

So while I know many are considering the move over to Dreamwidth and other such sites, supporting LJ is a way we can help support those who use it for more than a writing/roleplaying/social venue.


Also, as a FYI, LJ is giving paid users effected by the outage two weeks of paid time as compensation.

First: If you've been tagged, write your answers in your own LJ and replace any question that you dislike with a new question.

Second: Tag eight people. Don't refuse to do that (unless you have absolutely no friends to tag!).

In memory of family and friends who have lost the battle with cancer; and in support of the ones who continue to conquer it! Re-post this in your LJ if you know someone who has, had or has been affected by cancer.

93% won't even take the time to copy and paste this. Will you?

In memory and in honor of my father, grandfather, aunts, uncles, friends and the countless number of people who I have met through working with the American Cancer Society. You have inspired me to continue the fight!

Always in my heart and always on my mind.

What a day this has been. First the loss of Farrah Fawcett and then to learn of Michael Jackson's passing as well.

As a child of the 70's and 80's, both were a huge part of my childhood and growing up years. I remember watching Charlie's Angels, running around with my pretend gun in my hands and wishing I had Farrah's fantastic hair with the angel-like wings and listening to my brother and his friends go on and on about her famous bathing suit poster. Who would have thought that one of Charlie's Angels would be consumed by the the same disease that took my father from me. Such a tragedy, but in the face of adversity, she gave others hope, by showing her struggle and by fighting the good fight. God bless you Farrah, rest in peace.

I remember dancing in my room to "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough", "Blame It On The Boogie" among others and just being enthralled with Michael Jackson and his dance moves. I always tried to emulate them, but could never do them justice. People will remember Michael for a lot of things, his music, his dancing, his one glove, his philanthropy, his quirkiness and his private and personal struggles. What I'll remember the most, is his passion for making great music and for entertaining people. Taken so young and so suddenly. God bless you Michael, now you can sing with the angels.

Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's out there in LJ land, and even if you're not a mom, I hope you have a wonderful day.

Even though my mom and I are thousands of miles apart we managed to make today special. We had a long telephone conversation and while I wish that I was able to be back home with her to celebrate her awesomeness, she reassured me that just being able to talk to me brightened her day. My mom ROCKS!

Pretty soon Leslie and I will be off to Casa De Pico for lunch with her Grandma and her mom, Bonnie. Yummy! Last night was pizza and poker, where I lost my shirt. Bonnie joked that I was like the Federal Reserve because I had to borrow from the "money bucket" more than once. LOL

Good times this Mother's Day weekend.
