The stuff you find when you're not looking for it...

It's a beautiful day out today. The sun is shining and was warm here this morning. I've been sacking out and getting up earlier for the past couple of weeks. I got up around 4:30 I got here around 7:00 this morning. Since I didn't get to bed before 11:00 last night, I am a tad tired.

I've been Googling myself again. That's too much information, I know, but I admit it. Googling, is not just for perverts, anymore. You find out the damndest things doing a search on yourself. Just now, I found that my journal, and probably the journal of damned near everyone else on LJ is being extracted to a site somewhere in Russia. The site is called LJSucker, which probably refers to their practice of extracting data from LJ. My joural is there, as well as everyone else's, as far as I can tell.

It appears that the people who run this site have ported the LJ code as well, because you can comment to journals anonymously and there is a standard comment form which pops up when you hit the comment link, and it works. A word of warning to anyone reading this: DO NOT go log in there. I looked, and my doppleganger journal does not have any of the friends-only or private posts, so these guys have not breached LJ security. The only data they have is that which can be obtained publicly. This site may just be a set of test data for someone building LJ search tools or it might be the makings of a hoax site or some sort of trojan horse in the making. Don't give them your password by attempting to log on to "your" account.
