It looks like LJ is back up and running. They may have even been up before I finished typing up my previous post! In addition, pornish_pixies (ADULTS ONLY) has been reinstated. (ETA1: As of 3:48 PM lolita07 has also been reinstated.) This makes me beyond happy.
Just goes to show, "the squeaky wheel gets the grease". Now all I'm waiting for is for LJ News to tell me what the blackout/whiteout/"boom" was all about. ETA2: They updated sometime between between 3:50 PM and 4:02 PM (EST). BTW, I totally can't get over this: first LJ crashed, eveyone heads to GJ. Then GJ slows like crazy and LJ gets back up. Fabulous. Seems the two are never ment to co-exisist through tragedy.
ETA3: Oh my gosh, this Pepto-Bismol ad is fantastic.
