The /.LJ effect
Well, LJMatch is pretty cute, a neat idea...but the problem with sites like this appears to be that enthusiastic LiveJournalers spreading a meme friend-to-friend appear to be more effective at bringdng a site to its knees than any intentional DOS.

Well, that and the charging you to use the services outside of the cute part. Threw themselves directly under the wheels of a catch 22. Crappy service, no paying customers, no paying customers, no new servers for better service.

Yep, though this morning logging in wasn't happening for me. Thank you for the, um.. what is that called? The thingy you wrote. It was SO sweet! I tried to log on today to catch up on all my stuff I needed to do, but it wouldn't let me. I will get to it soon, promise! :)
