There Is No System Wide Failure

...with Blogger / Blogspot right now, 10 June 2006, 11:30 PDT. I created this post, at 11:00, and have been adding to it and others in this blog since then.

Neither

  • Blogger - the infrastructure / system to build websites.
  • Blogspot - the infrastructure / system to display the websites.

is down. I just wrote this post, and you are looking at it right now.

There are two known open issues right now. These issues affect specific people, not everybody, and neither are part of a systemwide failure. If either of these issues affects you, saying "Blogger is down", indiscriminantly, won't get you help.

Both cases might be easier solved, by more people providing input. You need to provide your input in the proper manner, though.

So, what do you want to do?

  • Gripe about the problem.
    • You are doing fine - just keep at it.

  • Solve the problem.


Now, if you want peer help, you should be able to find it - at Google Blogger Help - Broken, Google Blogger Help - Publishing, and / or Blogger Forum. Registration, and assistance, at any of the three is free (you do have to register), and generally polite. But you do need to provide some thought, when asking for help.

Here are some interesting posts, in Google Blogger Help. What do you say to folks like these? Their attitude is understandable - it's called shock. Shock brought upon by Blogger NoSupport.

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):

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