Blog*Spot DNS Related Outage In Indonesia

Various blogger customers in or near Indonesia are reporting inability to access Blogger blogs.

We have a Problem Rollup question in Blogger Help Forum, where the epidemiology of the problem is being explored.

If you are experiencing this problem, please state your country and city, and name of ISP.

Really thanks for your information, I'm a blogger from indonesia and your information is very helpful. Personally, I usually open my blog account via blogger, the reason is because I have to re-log in for my adsense account if i use blog*spot, but with blogger, goggle will only shown a click-able words: "take me to my account" instead. but so far, I don't know the difference between blogger and blog*spot.

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.
