Just my luck that during the lj fiasco the last two days my keyboard decided to fizz out on me and my computer decided to turn psycho, although that might be a good thing seeing as it saved me from being tempted to write rant after rant (instead I hogged my roomie's computer). Actually the keyboard's my fault, accidentally spilled water on it ^^;; So I'll have to go to Best Buy tomorrow to get a new one (
stealing borrowing my roomie's right now...again). I'm really impressed we managed to squeeze an apology out of lj and even getting them to backtrack and unsuspend the innocent journals and communities.
Anyway, another week finished, next three days I get to relax and hopefully catch up on some anime that I haven't been able to since the last two days I've been glued to lj, isn't it nice when people get together to cooperate? Too bad it only happens when there's a crisis.
[EDIT]: Going to post a list of links in commemoration of this event:

Scan your computer.
Word going around LJ is that the Warriors for Innocence site is FULL of spyware. So if you went to there site scan your computer right away.
Ah yeah, my computer conked out yesterday (actually my keyboard did after I spilled water on it, and then my comp went screwy) so I did a system recovery this morning and haven't set foot near their site since, so if I did get anything from them the first time I checked their blog it should be all gone by now...now I just need to buy a new keyboard XD
OH YAY thanks for the links to the icon posts. That's mostly what I wanted to stare at. XD
There were a few more LJ comms like reasoned_speech
, but I never went to them so I don't know much about them. People have also created comms like moved_away07
to keep track of LJers who have moved to GJ/JF or who have at least gotten new accounts.
