Mic Check's what's been up:
Wednesday, March 15, 2006
We’re doing some maintenance on one of our
Blog*Spot servers. Some blogs will be inaccessible while this is going on.
Everyone is able to publish, however, regardless of whether or not the blog is
down for maintenance.We apologize to those blog owners who are affected by this.
This partial outage is necessary to fix some of the transient Blog*Spot problems
that have popped up recently.Update: The maintenance is complete.

The filer that we have been having trouble with in the last
few days failed again. Those blogs that are stored on the bad filer are
temporarily not available for publishing and viewing. We are working on
replacing the filer and restoring access to the blogs affected.Update (10:40 am,
March 17): The filer has been restored. All affected blogs are available for
publishing and reading.

A clarification about the filer we restored yesterday: This
machine is indeed up and functioning again, so the affected blogs are no longer
entirely inaccessible. However, it is still not in great shape and we are in the
process of moving all the data off of it and on to better machines. So over the
next few days there may still be lingering and intermittent problems for some
blogs. This includes the "forbidden" errors we're all getting tired of, as well
as occasional publishing errors, or incompletely published pages. If you get an
error viewing a blog, refreshing the page once or twice should clear it. For
publishing problems, simply wait a few minutes and republish, and that should
take care of it. Thanks for your patience while we work on clearing all this up.
