Lj down again?

Anyone knows what's happening? LJ seems to be down again - I can't even reach the front page - and so is Hotmail/Outlook, for that matter. :(

Are we moving here for the time being?

Picowrimo Back up, June 2013, Day 12

Just in case LJ doesn't come back later today.

I should probably mention this site again in the daily post.

Back up, June 2013, Day 11

Back up post for snippets and checking in, in case LJ doesn't come back in the next couple of hours. I'm going out for a while and won't be able to check.

Please give LJ some time to right itself before you post here, we really don't want to duplicate effort.

24th June Livejournal on the Fritz AGAIN post

Though given everything is over on LJ, this is a bit irritating. Come on Vladimir, stop throwing tantrums!

Picowrimo June 23

 I haven't been able to access LJ all morning, so am putting up this post in case the problem is widespread and people wander by here to check in.

Please try posting at LJ first,  this is purely emergency back up.

Picowrimo Day 29

Good morning EDT time.

I can't get into LJ this morning. LJ's facebook page yesterday announced another DDOS attack. So just in case the problem is general, here is today's back up post for updates and comments. Please try to post at LJ first, we prefer to have everyone stay in the same place. I will try LJ again later today as well.

Picowrimo Day 11

Good morning EDT time. Here is the backup post for today's updates and comments for those of you who are having trouble with LJ. Please try to post at LJ first, ideally we can all stay in one place!

If we need to continue to add posts here, I'll be able to do them late night EDT which should give all time zones a full day of posting.

This is a back-up journal in case of outages for the LJ community PicoWriMo.
PicoWriMo started out as a place for people who wanted to participate in some of the madness and achievement of NaNoWriMo, but wanted a more realistic target - say 500 or 5000 words. 
We got together for November 2006. Members set their own goals for the month, and it was so successful that we decided to go again in November 2007. And again, and again, and again... In 2011 we had our first summer Pico, battling bravely through the great LJ outage. 
We have daily prompts during November for people to post about the progress they're making and to give encouragement to others to hit their writing targets. 
There are no goals other than those you set for yourself, and no compulsion beyond what you put upon yourself. There are no limits on genre, style, age, or experience, and both fiction and non-fiction are welcome.
Come and find us on LJ: PicoWriMo.
