Blogger Is All Fracked Up, Back Up Soon —Theoretically

Wondering what happened to that Chaplin movie I posted yesterday morning? And all the comments you (and I) have left here since Wednesday night?

Well, according to the Google, while performing routine maintenance on Wednesday evening, Blogger began experiencing some sort of technical problem that required them to—well, something. According to Blogger Buzz:

Here’s what happened: during scheduled maintenance work Wednesday night, we experienced some data corruption that impacted Blogger’s behavior. Since then, bloggers and readers may have experienced a variety of anomalies including intermittent outages, disappearing posts, and arriving at unintended blogs or error pages. A small subset of Blogger users (we estimate 0.16%) may have encountered additional problems specific to their accounts. Yesterday we returned Blogger to a pre-maintenance state and placed the service in read-only mode while we worked on restoring all content: that’s why you haven’t been able to publish. We rolled back to a version of Blogger as of Wednesday May 11th, so your posts since then were temporarily removed. Those are the posts that we’re in the progress of restoring.

I'll take their word for it—it's all jibber-jabber to my untrained ear.

Hopefully everything will be back to normal later today.
