Technical difficulties -- please stand by

There appears to be some problems with Blogger, which powers this blog. Some of the messages I've been getting:

Blogger is currently unavailable

Blogger is unavailable right now. We apologize for this interruption in service.

Blogger will go into read-only mode Wednesday (5/11) 10:00PM PST for about an hour for maintenance. Posted by at 21:17 PDT

I've noticed that my last post or two is gone, at least temporarily. Presumably no one has been able to comment either. The very fact that I've been able to post this means they're clearly working on the problem. Please be patient!


  1. It looks like they are up and running again. They said they are "trying" to restore all lost posts and comments. I guess we shall see.

  2. The Smallest Minority (also on Blogger) lost a post for a while and has been having "issues" of late, so it seems that it is system wide.

    This doesn't mean that it is an attack on you.

    It doesn't mean that it isn't either... B-)
