LJ downtime  
I'm resisting the urge to write a huge ranting post about the outage and the [fact/perception] that Six Apart brought its other services (i.e. TypePad) back online before it even began working on bringing back LJ.

ETA: See the comments in the news post to see what I'm talking about. This thread is of particular interest, if only because that's where I threw in my 2 cents.

As I said over at WWDN, what this shows is that the Six Apart takeover of LJ does have its downside. They told us that things would only get better under SA, and here is some concrete proof that that's not necessarily the case.

Instead of being the sole service at LJ headquarters (and therefore priority #1 by default), Livejournal is now a low priority service at SA headquarters.

That's not to say that things would have been better under the old regime (maybe with fewer staff working on the problem, it might actually have been a longer delay), but the perception of favouritism now lingers, and SA now have to scurry (once again) to repair another PR blunder.
