It's not just you. Both Twitter and Facebook down.

This is so annoying. How can I effectively waste my time all morning, if both Twitter and Facebook are down?

PC Magazine writes:
The popular microblogging site, Twitter, went down early Thursday morning, with the site's operators confirming the outage on a status blog.

Twitter offered no explanation for the outage, adding a characteristically pithy post on its Status blog titled, simply, "Site is Down." "We are determining the cause and will provide an update shortly," the post read.

PCMag.com staffers also noted problems with Facebook at about the same time, with the site failing to load briefly. The status site, downforeveryoneorjustme.com, also reported both Twitter and Facebook being down at about 9:45 AM Eastern time. Facebook was accessible shortly thereafter, although PCMag.com staffers reported a few glitches, such as problems with posting status updates and internal links.

At press time, it was not clear why either site had suffered problems. However, sites operated by Gawker Media crashed on Monday, later believed to be the result of a DDoS attack against The Consumerist blog, which is owned by Consumers Union, but whose content is hosted by Gawker Media.

My name is Charlie. These are my Angels.

Goofy photo from the G20
Cheesiest photo of world leaders ever? Obama poses with Berlusconi, Medvedev, and Hu Jintao, but it just looks like a corny corporate retreat photo to me. ^_^

Longtime "fan"???

I love fan mail. Especially from hot guys.
Hello DJ!!

I'm not going to lie. This email is going to sound a little on the stalker side, but bear with me.

I first saw you back in 2000 when I came across DJParis.com. I was totally excited about cute guys on webcam. You know, the usual 18 y.o. thing. I even had a few chats with you on your site's chat room. My screen name there was "mr. big". I can't believe I remember that, I'll be even more surprised if you do.

Anyways, I popped into your site a couple times a week for the past few years now, just to see what's new in your life. Last year I was shocked to learn about your musical talents. But then again, I don't really know you in person. haha.

Congrats on all of your success!! I would love to see you perform. That is, if I can get away from school and work long enough to actually enjoy a life.

I friend requested you if you didn't already check that out. Hopefully you added me, if not, well, I can't say that I blame you. Weird stalker guy from Ohio. LOL.

Good luck on all of your future and current ventures!

Much love and respect,
Kevin
