New posts coming soon

It looks like the Google/Blogger folks have finally fixed the FTP uploading issue which has kept me - and many other people - from being able to post to my blogs since late last week. This is the second time this has happened for a multi-day stretch in about the past 7 or 8 months and it has prompted me to start looking at other options. I've installed WordPress on my server and I'm playing around with that now, so I might be moving to that blogging platform in the near future. Blogger is usually quite reliable and easy to use, but not being able to make any posts (or have any comments show) for nearly 4 days is really annoying.

Look for many new questions this afternoon or this evening. There have been a lot coming in, which made this a really bad time to not be able to publish!

Thank you for all your hard work on the site despite the problems. It's very enjoyable here.

Thanks kb!

Unfortunately it seems that things aren't really working that well, since nothing is publishing to the pages. But at least the comments are still posting... you just have to click on the comments link to see if there are any there. Since those are hosted on the "blogger" part, they are showing up just fine. Very strange...

Anyway, I spent my lunch hour getting started learning WordPress, so I'll probably be migrating over soon. I'd really like everything to publish correctly at least a few more times at Blogger so it will make the migration easier. Oh well!
