A big giant "I'm sorry." to everyone on my friend's list who is annoyed by my big long string of posts, I had no other choice as will be explained in a minute when I give a...

...BIG GIANT FUCK YOU TO LIVEJOURNAL, who won't let me make a single post larger than about a paragraph, and not even a large paragraph which is why my account of Saturday is even split in two. It will accept one-word entries with ease, and even small paragraphs, but if the post gets anywhere near two paragraphs or more than several lines, it times out and refuses to post anything at all from both the win32 client and the web page. Congrats go to LiveJournal for making their site almost completely useless and annoying and extraneous to use otherwise!

Whoo! Lets give the site a big hand for being unusable for me for the last week or two! Whee! Yay!

I'd post another support request saying I checked status.*, lj_maintenance, etc. But I'd just get told to check them again, and then told to try again during a non-peak time, or in 5 minutes... just like last time. Whoo, that'll help not at all. These new servers that are "on the way" better improve things drastically or I'm really going to have a fit.

Currently there is nothing wrong with LiveJournal.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, the site is run by a team of comedians! I get it! :)))))

it works fine for meee... :o\ sorry you're getting frustrated about that;
just kick it in the head.

If only...

Sorry you're having problems. i have problems now and then during "peak times" but i've never had problems posting long posts. =(

Yeah, if that was all it was, I wouldn't so upset. But this has been going on for more than a week now, and during non-peak times as well. During any time even peak times, I can post short entries fine. During any time at all, it completely drops and refuses to post long entries.


I've been having a bunch of problems myself, its almost at the point where ill write or get a journal setup and just host it on my own site for my journal rather than here :(

Yeah, I was thinking that myself just now. At this point, it would actually be less work to manually edit an HTML doc in notepad and upload by FTP to add an entry than it is to post to LJ. It's insane.

Could just write or get an asp script that would act like LJ's web editor for it, ive seen quite a few around in the past.

Yeah, I would write a perl CGI... would be really easy actually. Make it a form like my sxc flipper (http://medlir.warped.com/sxc/portflip.cgi), put a comment tag in the target HTML doc as a marker, and have the script open the file, find the mark, and add the form submitted lines to the file immediately after the marker. COuld even automatically add the time and date, etc. Really simple. :P

I would do it but uh, i blow at webdesign and such.. so it would be really ugly and not worth it, but do it up dude probably be better for you :/

Okay, I'll make it just for fun as a project, but not necessarily to use. :P

You know you're gonna use it so shh.

I may just stop using my jorunal all together, i have like 5 friends on it *tear*, im not loved, anywho posting is a pain in the ass because it either times out or the servers down, for me atleast.

I have weird problems on my LJ when I try to use mozilla....my friends list seems to hate that browser on a mac. Otherwise, besides running a bit slow, it's not too bad.

Sorry about all the crap it's given you tho. :::/

Grey.. matter..

Look it up on the net.. and intall it on your site.. you'll not be sorry :)
