Heard the Word of Blog?

Wednesday, September 08, 2004

Downtime finally explained.

I had been trying to post yesterday's post last night, and continued to have problems this morning. There was nothing on the Blogger status page about it, but apparently my blog and a whole lot of other people's blogs went down yesterday and only now went back up.

Here's what I was finally told, via email:

Hi there,

We apologize for the problems you have been experiencing with Blogger. We
had a simultaneous failure across multiple machines responsible for the
publishing of Blog*Spot blogs, but this issue has now been fixed. To
prevent this type of outage in the future, we are performing a full system
audit to ensure that proper redundancies are in place.

Blogger Support

OK, simultaneous failure across multiple machines, for a little less than a day. Certainly this was a noticeable thing that could have been reported on the Blogger status page. But there was nary a peep that something systemic was wrong until now. Not good form, guys. Not good form.
