Static Fling - A Blogger Outage
Is Blogger the sixth most popular internet sight? That was a rumor I heard while searching the news about Blogger's over 20 hour hiccup that began yesterday and ran through today. Data corruption was the reason that Blogger reports led to its take down of all posts since Wednesday, May 11th., 2011. At first, access was read-only, and users weren't able to log in to their blogs. As I write this post, Blogger has returned my posts since Wednesday. Who posted corrupt code at Blogger? Inquiring minds want to know.
Personally, I did notice some bad behavior by my blog leading up to the outage. Blogger posted my comments, incorrectly, as CaseyBooks, and adding a video on my sidebar that belonged in the posts.
The Colorist has been posting daily since May 3rd., and so the impact on my plans has been noticeable. I want the posts to show an uninterrupted daily listing. It is a goal I keep once a year, and the rest of the year I like to post once, twice or three times a week.
