I contacted the good folks at Live Journal yesterday, telling them about the sudden problem I'm having with the display of fonts on LJ. As expected, they replied promptly. I know some other people have encountered the squiffy font problem, so I thought I'd post their response here:

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The developers are aware & currently they are working on this. As a temporary solution, you may wish to use another browser.

Additionally, the lj_releases community will announce when this has been fixed.
You can view lj_releases here.

Thank you for your patience & sorry for the inconvenience.

I imagine running LJ is a bit like being a weatherman - when you get it right, nobody notices (or appears to appreciate it), but get it wrong and they never let you forget. 


Hopefully, it won't take too long to fix the problem. In the meantime, I'm looking at this as an opportunity to appreciate how smoothly my LJ runs most of the time (and keeping my fingers crossed that they sort it out soon ).

What browser did you have to switch away from? (Maybe you said in your last post and I wasn't reading carefully....)

I use Interenet Explorer (though I didn't mention that to LJ when I reported the problem). I haven't switched to anything wlse because I want to know when they fix the problem.

Is it affecting you too?

No; I use Safari, but I was just curious to see which browser it *was* affecting. I hope they get it sorted for you soon!

Hmmm.
Squiffy the Wonderfont.
Sounds like a story waiting to be written.

And it may be waiting a very long time.

See, what I want to know is, why is YOUR blog always the one that has these glitches. First the long-term problem of not getting post/comment notifications via email, now this.

I think you're being targeted, man! Better check your office for bugs.

I'm not exactly sure what that means, but it's good to get out of our comfort zone once in a while :)

I see they have maintenance scheduled for tonight. So thanks to you, they're shutting down LJ. Thanks a lot. ;) (P.S. I think my font is wonky too.)

Hehe, I wish I had that kind of influence, but I assure you, I don't :(
