As many of you may already know, LiveJournal experienced about an hour of downtime on Thursday, August 6th due to a DDoS which affected LiveJournal and several other web service providers. In the days following that event some users may have noticed some site slowness or experienced connection problems as we worked on blocking "bad" traffic and making sure that all of you could access the site. We want to apologize for any inconvenience or frustration this caused.

Although the circumstances were out of our control, we greatly appreciate the patience and support you've shown us over the past week or two as we worked to mitigate the effects of this attack. For those of you who support us by owning a Paid Account, we'd like to express our appreciation by extending your Paid Time for a few days. Anyone who was an active Paid member as of any time Thursday, August 6, 2009 is eligible for a 3 day extension of Paid time. You can claim this extension anytime from now until 12:01 GMT on September 10th.

The extension isn't automatic so that people who weren't affected can have the option to choose whether or not they want an extension. You can choose to claim your extension by going to this page: http://www.livejournal.com/pay/claim.bml

Wow, that's awfully kind of you all. I won't be using it since I really didn't notice any issues with LJ that day. Twitter however...boy howdy was that a pain.

and so, basically, people with permanent accounts are screwed twice. first no LJ, then no recompense for not having LJ.

In one of the comments on the first page, buried and collapsed is an LJ mod who said they were working on something for perm users and should be available in a couple of months. The Russians really are taking better care of us than I thought they would
