Celtic ruins

I've had a hard time accessing LJ the last few months. Often it won't come up at all for me and after trying several times and waiting 5 minutes I give up. I wonder why.

Other things that are going on:
I am now a member of Through the Tollbooth (a group blog) and posted about a week ago (including a cool interview with a translator) so if you want to check out my posts, you can see one of them HERE and get to the others easily.

I also blog some on my more formal blog, Explorations. (I've posted more often there because LJ has not cooperated with me.)
If you want to see some photos of our hike up a mountain, Alt Konig, and Celtic ruins from 400 BC, it can be found here. (I've found it is much easier to upload photos to blogger, than LJ.)

Here is one photo.  Check out my longer post if you want to see others.



This is a section of one of the outer ring walls. Cities and farms can be seen in the distance.

We thought we were going to Roman ruins. There are many very close to where we live and to this mountain. It is odd to try to see Roman ruins and end up seeing Celtic (much older!) ruins or to try to see one castle, but then unknowingly take a wrong turn and find another, much better castle.
Life is fun.

The problems with LJ of late stem from their partnership with Russia. Apparently LJ is the only blogging platform available for its citizens, and it's being attack by those who wish to stifle free speech. So hang tough, please. For your friends (me!) who love seeing you in the neighborhood, and also on principle. (You can Google this for more information...some of the major publications, like TIME magazine, have covered it in more depth.)

Thanks for the info.
(I also couldn't access LJ when I was in my previous country . . . )
I'll keep posting and reading, and be patient when there are days I'm unable to get on and check anything.

LJ's been a mess for a lot of us, but I imagine it's worse in Europe right now :(

Cool pix :)

I had no idea there were issues.
The pictures--I had fun taking them. Thanks.

LJ has been the victim of a sustained DDoS attack, apparently politically motivated out of Russia. If you ever have difficulty reaching it, check http://status.livejournal.org/ for the current status (which at the moment is "extremely high traffic," which is shorthand for "under attack but mostly working").

Thanks for the info!
Now it makes sense that I've not been able to access it at all many days.

Wow, I had not idea. I haven't noticed a problem, but I have only been reading and not posting as of late.
