My layout seems normal, but everything else on lj is a mess. Especially the posting/commenting process, which keeps timing out on me. :(

I hope it will just come back by itself. All sorts of weird stuff is happening.

A friend of mine hat this happen. There are more requests with the same questions.

Thank you for your report, and I apologize for the inconvenience caused by this problem. You appear to have experienced a very old bug in which LiveJournal's internal caches become corrupted in some form, causing your journal layout to revert to a default setting. However, your style's information is still saved in our databases, and you should be able to restore your previous customizations at this time by following these instructions:

1) Go to the Your Styles page here [http://www.livejournal.com/customize/advanced/styles.bml]
2) Click the "Use" button next to the name of the style you were previously using. This step will re-activate this style for your journal.

Once you have completed these steps, your original customization settings should be restored. You may need to perform a "hard refresh" or clear your browser's cache before seeing changes to your journal. If you are still unable to see your previous customizations after following these steps and clearing your browser's cache, please reply and we will investigate the problem.

Check them out (like http://www.livejournal.com/support/see_request.bml?id=1283676
or http://www.livejournal.com/support/see_request.bml?id=1277118)
or open a request yourself.

Hope this helps.

It might be as a result of the DDoS attacks? (Which are not LJ's fault - for once they're actually fighting the good fight.)

Hope you get your pretty layout back soon, though. Have you let LJ know?

I am so sorry to hear that.
