Atom / RSS Feeds Are Empty - Again

Once again, we have several reports from bloggers who publish blogs to external servers, using FTP.
Tha file at http://www.blogger.com/feeds/8073700612434047107/posts/default is ok. But the files in my FTP (http://www.afnews.info/public/afnews/rss.xml and atom.xml) are at 0.
and
I noticed on my server that although Blogger is writing the postings to the correct path and archives on my server, and although the progress screen says it is writing to the files atom.xml and rss.xml on that server, in fact these files are remaining at 0 bytes.


This problem, first seen a couple weeks ago, and fixed shortly after it was seen, has returned.

(Update 13:00): Blogger has declared this issue fixed.
Update: This has been fixed.
As with the previous occasion, I suggest that you republish your blog.

Yes, it looks like I'm having the problem again this time as well.

One of my blogs was last published yesterday AM and appears to be fine. A second blog of mine was updated this morning and the atom/rss files are 0.

Eric,

This problem was declared fixed, several weeks ago. If you're still seeing this problem, you need to post details in GBH: How Do I?, or in Nitecruzr Dot Net - Blogging. Peer support is a much better way to explore this.

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.
