A Problem Resolved, Or A New Mystery Begun?

So today, Blogger Support, represented by Buzzie, reported in Blogger Help Group: Publishing Trouble 24 hours of no posting, no commenting, no nothing, at 11/4 12:00
We have fixed the problem. Again, sorry for the inconvenience. if you still have trouble don't forget to mention your blog url.

The above quote was in response to yet another report of
We're sorry, but we were unable to complete your request.

an often reported problem recently.

Slightly earlier, at 11/4 11:57 we see a similar message
We have fixed the problem. Again, sorry for the inconvenience. if you still have trouble don't forget to mention your blog url.

This for todays problem, after 12 hours of hell,
Your post was not saved due to a database error. An engineer has been notified.

So what happened here? Did they fix two problems in one day, or was one problem present for the past week, and got fixed in 30 minutes? Was this yet another 30 minute fix?

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.
