Blogger Outage

You should have been able to access the blog without incident, but I was unable to post or even access the back-end from the 11th clear through the 14th. I managed to get on long enough to post one thing that Friday, as Blogger was available early in the day but went down that afternoon. If you look at the post, you can see strange characters in the tags (which I am leaving for the purposes of illustration).

Blogger had scheduled maintenance for (IIRC) the 11th and things were fine for the next day or so. It was on the 13th that Blogger announced it was in read-only mode, which lasted well into the evening. I had company over the weekend and did not post, though I did check to moderate comments. I didn't notice the strange tags until yesterday.

According to information at the time (which appears to be missing now), the issue had to do with Popular Posts.

So far, I can post, but Blogger's still hosed. It's throwing-up old posts as drafts and what-not.

Going to have to go easy on posting for the next day or so because it's very confusing and time-consuming to sort through all of Blogger's mess.

Like using Google.
