Blogger has eaten Radio Free Tooting

I am bummed out. This is the second time in six months that Blogger has taken my blog down. The last time was because they thought it was a spam blog. This time the blogspot site is just not there. I get a stripped down version of the dashboard instead. There are a few other people in the Help forums who seem to have had something similar happen to them. Unfortunately these outages have been occurring since 29-JAN and there doesn't seem to be anyone who has managed to get their site back yet. Cheers, APC

It looks like your blog is up now. Maybe this is a warning to motivate you to move your blog off of and to or some other blogging platform.

It was really an odd thing. After posting here I discovered I could see my stuff through the Blogger dashboard, and even view individual pages: it was just the domain url which was broken.

Like people have said, it's back now, so it obviously was just a quirk.

As for migrating to Wordpress is it really more reliable? Or is it just less stressed because it has a smaller userbase? Genuine question.

Cheers, APC .

Perhaps you could investigate Livejournal? I've used it for ages, it's got a large user base, and is fairly stable.
Comment by Joel Garry on February 17, 2008 at 6:03pm, which I've had my homepage on since the last century, also had a problem in the same time frame. Impossible to get any info out of them as to the cause. "Support" doesn't even know what it is. Since I can get zero information out of them, I can only speculate the vax died and it took them days to rotate the tires until it worked again (old DEC field tech joke). But if other random unrelated parts of the net went down, it must be a hacker conspiracy. Play spooky music now.

Recently, a performance issue occurs in a big detail report, where the original data volume in the two data tables as it involves has exceeded 3 million rows; the data volume that the report can retrieve after filtering remains at round 2 million rows. As we expected before, by using paged retrieve method, this report would present a much higher performance. However, for the fact that the user also needs to…
