www.livejournal.com will be unavailable from Thursday, October 30, 2008 at 03:30:00 UTC to Thursday, October 30, 2008 at 07:30:00 UTC.
Make sure you check status.livejournal.ORG for updates as they happen. That is a different web server on a different network which is why it will be up even when the rest of our web servers are being... maintained.
As a little note, even though you won't be able to post when we're offline, during that time you can *still* create entries that will be ready to be uploaded once we're back! How? Check out our Client downloads page if you haven't already! Clients, or little programs designed to work just with LiveJournal, are available for all sorts of computers including Windows, Macs, Linux, and handhelds. They're really cool and a lot of the clients also keep a local copy of your journal entry on your computer (just remember to save your work as you go along). That way you won't lose an entry if you accidentally close your browser or get disconnected from the internet *just* as you're posting. Don't ask me how I know about that. :(
Hope this tip helps and we'll see you back online at 07:30:00 UTC time.
