I seriously think 2011 is a bad year for Livejournal. I don’t know what’s going on with them and they’re still not updating their status anywhere. I see a lot of people on Twitter still complaining about the situation so I’d like to share what’s happening with me…
[+] I’m on a PC right now and regularly use Google Chrome. With Chrome, I can only access Livejournal’s front page (log in and then it gets me to Welcome Back, tomatoe18 page) but can’t open ANY of the pages, including my own LJ at the url http://tomatoe18.livejournal.com
And this is the latest message I get from it:
This webpage is not available.
The webpage at http://tomatoe18.livejournal.com/__setdomsess?dest=http%3A%2F%2Ftomatoe18.livejournal.com%2F&k=ljdomsess.tomatoe18&v=v1%3Au1348578%3As5280%3At1311678000%3Ag226008acfbfb315454ffe157c3496f06f8a9e924%2F%2FThanks%2520for%2520signing%2520in%2520%252F%2520LiveJournal%2520loves%2520you%2520a%2520lot%2520%252F%2520Here%2520have%2520a%2520cookie might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.
Error 324 (net::ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE): Unknown error.
The message is the same for all of the Livejournal pages I try to open using Chrome. I tried clearing the cache – still doesn’t work at all.
[+] On the same PC, I switched to Firefox and Internet Explorer. I logged in with Firefox – no problem; all pages work fine but kind of slow loading. I didn’t log in with IE but manage to open the pages but still slow loading.
[+] Then I switched computers to Macbook and used Safari. I didn’t log in but I can open all of the pages. It loads a teensy bit faster on Safari but then my page’s background picture is wonky, LIKE THIS.
Is this a problem with Scrapbook or with the coding? I’m not even sure where the problem is because it only does so in Safari.
[+] LJ needs an update from LJ maintenance. The Twitter page and the status page also need to be updated. I’m just really confused about what’s going on right now and I see on Twitter a lot of people are complaining that, although the site SEEMS to be back up, it’s still not working for MANY people.
[+] It took me FOREVER to submit this Troubleshooting inquiry to the Support Board. It has been taking me FOREVER to open the Support Board, too, so I ended up sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org where I got automated response.
[+] I forgot to say: my location is in Indonesia, South East Asia, and this post was made on 7.18 PM, Jakarta time. (Just in case someone is reading this and wants a time frame…)
What about you?
Livejournal did not let me post this, so I’m doing it on WordPress. What has the Internet become? Complaining about one blogging website on another…
