Last weekend was a bad time for many owners of blogs published to custom domains, with numerous blogs returning the well known "404 Not Found" error in various flavours. When attempting to repair the problem, the owners were greeted with two error codes - bX-f42977 and bX-e3i9af. My home page blog, Nitecruzr Dot Net was offline for several days with this problem.
During the weekend, Blogger Support developed and pushed a fix which eliminated this problem. The fix was effective in most cases, but possibly not all.
Today, several bloggers have reported that the problem has returned. Analysis of the DNS setups show standard Google Apps style configurations; yet when attempting to publish the blogs back to BlogSpot, or repeat the publish to the custom domain, these bloggers are greeted by the bX-e3i9af error.
