Custom Domain Blogs - October 1, 2008

Like many Blogger blogs that publish to a Google Custom Domain, all blogs in Nitecruzr Dot Net were off the network last night.

The good news is that Blogger Employee Dana, proactively, published an announcement at 23:46 September 30.
Some users are seeing their custom domain blogs forwarding to www.google.com

We are aware of this problem and are working to resolve this issue immediately.
This is a major improvement from malfunctions of this magnitude, and as the problem apparently started around 23:00, this is particularly significant.

The following morning, during the process of re establishing all aliases in the domain, I encountered a couple of old (yes) friends (not)
Another blog is already hosted at this address
and
404 Server Not Found


Some custom domain blogs came back with no problems - others didn't. If you have a blog that didn't, you'll likely see one of the above symptoms.

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):
