Gakked from everyone. And I do mean everyone.

Livejournal: The Russian Bear Slashes a Social Network which I read at first as "Slashing Bears" and got really, really worried about my flist (I don't want to slash bears. Is that the new thing? Slashing bears? What kind of bears? Can I pretend to slash bears who turn into humans? WTF are you people watching?). Very upsetting.

I mean, the slashing bears thing. This is too! But thank you all for not slashing bears because I love you, but oh my God, I don't think I can deal with that.

synecdochic talks (not about slashing bears!) here and is reassuring.

I feel we should all talk about our feelings, but most of mine are revolving around the fact I'm at work and apparently, I can't take off using the excuse MUST GO HOME AND BACK UP LJ NOW KTHX as that does not qualify as an emergency under current work rules. Yeah, no clue what's up with that kind of crazy. If this is not an internet emergency, I do not know what is.

Can I metaquotes that? Please?

But thank you all for not slashing bears because I love you, but oh my God, I don't think I can deal with that.

May I remind you about Care Bare gangbang story? Remember, there is nothing on the internets that have not been done before.

You hate me adn want me to cry.

I am blocking that from my memory.

*flashbacks*

*nods*

I went and immediately backed up my lj. I hope that this works out in a 'we get to keep lj' fashion.

God yes. Man, I wish we could all buy it, though that would take fandom to new and fascinating planes of fanwar, yes?

Heh, I doubt LJ is going to suddenly vanish between now and this evening, even with them firing a lot of their staff.

Just remember that GreatestJournal stopped all maintenance over a year ago and has been running on their backup database, and still the site has not vanished (though okay, it is slow, has no new signups and the icons don't work, but it loads and people still can post). So I think if they curtail their tendency to implement "improvement" they'll be probably able to run the site with fewer people without it breaking down, unless they suddenly decide to cut their losses completely.

There is that. I know intellectually it shouldn't collapse like, before I get home? But I will be itchy until I can get a new backup.

thanks for the heads up! *goes to backup ljs*

*ENVY YOUR BACKING UP*

I too have been backing up my entries over on IJ - not as religiously as I should have been but semi regularly, so I only had two weeks worth to plonk over there in a hurry. I'm going to do a .pdf back-up next which is (I believe) the only way to grab comments.

But damn this makes me uneasy. I mean LJ failed what, a week ago? What if we'd never come back from that white screen of doom? *shudder*




I am so doing my ljarchive when i get home.

So what are some good utilities to back up LJ stuff, aside from tedious copy'n'paste?

I back up LJ pretty often so not worried about that. I'm more concerned with how will I find everyone if we all have to move???

insanejournal has an lj-refuge, so that could be a meeting point, I think. And there'sa mailing list for lj refugees too.

So is now when I admit I have no idea how to back this thing up even though I would greatly prefer not to lose things?

Also: Give us a chance, I'm sure we could do Care Bear/Russian Bear slash if you really want it. *whistles innocently*

*under bed* Noooo slashing foreign bears.

For a second, I was all dawww, then I realized what this was. I do not care! I....

....IS THAT A BEAR THREESOME? OH MY GOD.

JohnBear watched RodneyBear wiggle his way out from under the rock slide, nothing look permanently injured, but his *tummy* was shading darker at the side, purple and blue and it lacked the sparkle that JohnBear liked to nag into brighter existance.

"A paw would be nice." RodneyBear grumped as he lost his footing.

JohnBear stopped staring and immediately tugged gently at RodneyBear's arms, helping him upright. He hissed in pain when JohnBear got him close to standing and without thought JohnBear reached out and touched the darkened park of his Tummy.

"Ow." RodneyBear said halfheartedly. "Also. Ow."

JohnBear let his nose rest lightly on RodneyBear's head and then bobbed him gently with it. "Shut up." With closed eyes and tight chest, JohnBear *sparkled*, letting it slide gently over to RodneyBear's injured side.

"Oh." RodneyBear whispered. "Oh."


*FLEES*

You did not just do that.

*under desk, shaking*

Is it wrong of me that I think of slashing bears as a non-problem, because I drop to the definition of "bear" that is gay to begin with?

See, I'd have been far less WTF if I'd just read it like that. Though again, I'd be wondering when did this fandom appear? How did so many people get into it so fast?

Also, on a purely prurient note: If the first picture is showing copulation and not cuddling/wrestling, OMG how long is that top bear's penis?! O_O *whistles innocently*

Eeee! I do not want to know.
