Status 503 - Servlet NewFrontend is currently unavailable

A few months ago, we would be getting Error 500. Now, it's Status 503.

HTTP Status 503 - Servlet NewFrontend is currently unavailable

Type: Status report

Message: Servlet NewFrontend is currently unavailable

Description: The requested service (Servlet NewFrontend is currently unavailable) is not currently available.


The solution is the same as previously - Clear your Blogger cookie.

At any time, the individual Blogger server, thru which you are accessing your blog, may become extremely busy, or may go off line for some, unexplained, reason. This is an unfortunate reality in the server world.

By clearing your Blogger cookies, you can force Blogger to "randomly" assign you to another server. Sometimes, you may get the same server back; other times, you may be assigned to yet another broken server. So you might have to try clearing your Blogger cookies repeatedly.

If the problem is with a cluster of servers, or if you're reassigned the same server as before, you may continue to get the same error. Keep trying, until you are "randomly" assigned a working server.

Patience and persistence.

Thank you, Chuck.

I am sometimes kind of stupid about computer things and it's good to know there's someone who knows the real fixes. Clearing the cookies (something I should probably do often anyway) fixed my inability to log in.). Cool.

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.

Free Domain Registration By "UNONIC" Is Fraudulent

Blogger blog owners, like everybody else, like to save money.

Some blog owners prefer to save money when registering a custom domain, for their blogs. We've seen several free domain registration services, providing what is claimed to be a two level Top Level Domain "co.xx" (where "xx" == various country codes).

The latest in this ongoing story appears to be "net.tf" - and 13 other "top level domains".There is also an additional free service offering third-level .tf domains, under the name United Names Organisation. They occupy 14 second-level domains, including .eu.tf, .us.tf, .net.tf, and .edu.tf. They are run by the same company as smartdots.com, and are given away as URL redirections.
