I've been getting
Please republish your blog in 10 minutes.

For the last 2 hours.

I get this too sometimes but when it happens it's because my connection is very slow at this times. We have high speed cable connection but for some unbeknown reason it sometimes slows down, allmost to a grinding hold.

A few times I could not log into blogger, an error message would come up saying "this blog does not exist" but it had to do with the connection being slow at that time.

In this cases I usually hit the refresh button and will do the trick. At least that's how it works for me.

I have nothing useful to add except that when this subject showed up in a New Posts search, I thought it said Blogger Scheduled Outrage--and I thought, "Well, yeah."

I don't know if Blogger is having issues or doing server work tonight, but I've had some trouble posting comments (and on one blog it just hung there not taking me to the comments page at all).

Blogger was having major problems yesterday. I'm inching more and more to thinking I need to suck it up and figure out how to install WordPress and just move mine.

Is it just me, or has Blogger had more problems than usual lately...?

Is it just me, or has Blogger had more problems than usual lately...?

A few weeks ago, Blogger was giving me so many problems and I got no response from tech help except a reference to their FAQs, which was completely irrelevant to the problems I was having, so I ditched blogger and moved my blogs to LiveJournal.

Dawno
04-14-2006, 07:55 PM
I'm hanging in with Blogger for a while longer - their connection with Google, the way I get some traffic from their "next blog" feature and the time I've invested in the current template all motivate me to stick with it.

That said, I've really not noticed it being any worse than usual. But it can be frustrating when it's not available when I want it to be.

Blogger.com will be down on April 24 2006 from 4 pm PDT to 4:45 pm PDT due to planned maintenance. We’re sorry about the one-two unplanned/planned outage punch today, but we need to do some database maintenance. You will still be able to view your blogs during the outage. Be assured that when Blogger.com comes back, it will be shinier and happier than ever.

I have been trying for a couple of days to 'republish' my index with some changes I made to some broken links. It hasn't been successful yet. Hope later tonite it will. I have new duckie pictures :) The boy duckie is now walking around with the girl in our back yard. He's a noisy one.

I can open a few, but most are slow. My food blog opens fine, but the writing one is giving me trouble for nearly 12 hours now. I hope it gets sorted out soon.

According to BoingBoing, the Indian government is requiring ISPs to block blogspot.com (Blogger) and typepad.com blogs.

Explaination and update from SAJA.

From: A.R.Ghanashyam
Subject: Blog Issue in India

July 19, 2006

Reference our discussions and correspondence on the issue of blocking of blogs in India, we had taken up the matter with the authorities concerned in the Department of Telecommunications in the Government of India and the facts are as under:

A two-page write up containing extremely derogatory references to Islam and the holy prophet which had the potential to inflame religious sensitivities in India and create serious law and order problems in the country appeared in a blog facilitated by well known search engines. The matter was immediately taken note of by our CERT (Computer Emergency Response Team) and the Department of Telecommunications (DOT) was informed of it. The DOT took up the matter forthwith with the search engines and instructions were also issued to all Internet providers to block the two impertinent pages. Because of a technological error, the Internet providers went beyond what was expected of them which in turn resulted in the unfortunate blocking of all blogs.

Department of Telecommunications have now clarified the issue and the error is being rectified and it is expected that normalcy in respect of blogs will soon be restored.

For some reason, I don't quite buy this. It seems pretty unlikely that more than one ISP would accidentally block the entire blogspot.com and typepad.com domains when they were supposed to be only blocking two pages. I hope this announcement means that the block has been removed.

I tend to agree with you. The block is still in place, but reports suggest it will be lifted in the next 48 hours. (http://in.rediff.com/news/2006/jul/19blogs.htm)

I hope that is true. I feel handicapped. :cry:
