Unbelievable!

They updated Blogger Status!

They finally have a new entry Wednesday, March 15, 2006

We’re doing some maintenance on one of our Blog*Spot servers. Some blogs will be inaccessible while this is going on. Everyone is able to publish, however, regardless of whether or not the blog is down for maintenance.

We apologize to those blog owners who are affected by this. This partial outage is necessary to fix some of the transient Blog*Spot problems that have popped up recently.

Update: The maintenance is complete.

Again, posted after the work was done. Thanks, Pete.

So, the outage 3/10 - 3/13 was a transient Blog*Spot problem. That's real useful.

Knock 'em dead, and knock blogger. Their photo upload feature has been down for 48 hours and there is absolutely no way to get a real world answer from them or any status report, other than form emails and ancient status postings. I rely on photo uploads to update some newspaper blogs-- I am done with blogger and advising my company as we speak to move away from them

Several blogs including mine:

http://vikingpundit.blogspot.com

and Stolen Thunder and Betsy's Page are "NOT FOUND". Blogger, I'm sure, is doing nothing.

are you saying the upload to post images is fixed because mine is still not working??

From the BS note (Blogger Support = BS too).

If you continue to have trouble, please clear your browser's cache and cookies, then log in to Blogger again.

Has anyone tried this? I'm still having a problem with mine.
Chuck said…
Yes, of course.

Since the problem is so intermittent, though, it's impossible to say for sure whether the problem is solved by clearing cache & cookies, or just by retrying.

It's like the old phone company (you remember them) error message:
If you feel that you have reached this number in error, hang up and try again.

Again, Blogger Support = BS.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.

Help! I Can't See My Blog!

I just posted to my blog, so I know that it's there. I can tell others are looking at it. But I can't see it.

Well, the good news is you don't have a blog hijack or other calamity. Your blog is not gone.

Apparently, some ISPs are blocking *.blogspot.com, or maybe have network configuration or infrastructure problems. You can access Blogger.com or you can access Blogspot.com, but you can't access nitecruzr.blogspot.com, or bloggerstatusforreal.blogspot.com.

You can't access them directly, that is. If you can access any free, anonymous proxy servers, though, you may be able to access your blog.

Note: You can use PKBlogs with the URL pre packaged. Here is the address of this post (with gratuitous line breaks to prevent the old post sidebar alignment problem):
http://www.pkblogs.com/bloggerstatusforreal.blogspot.com/

And an additional URL, to provide to those suffering from this problem, would be the WordPress version of this post:
