Comments


Kirk Tuck has indicated that he will be on vacation until after the New Year. Once the site is back up, it is still worthwhile to check out his old posts but don't expect new ones until 2013.

Kirk's last post on Dec 19th was "Blog Note: We'll be on vacation until after the New Year. Hope you have a nice Holiday!!!!" so he wasn't intending to post much in the next few days.

I wonder if Blogger didn't like all of the photos he posted in that entry? Weird.

RSS of course is your friend (especially as he does full text in RSS). It's cached in my reader.

Awful timing, too---his latest post was about going on vacations for the rest of the year. I hope he can solve the situation soon, or at least push it out of his mind until the New Years so he can enjoy his vacations in peace.

Kirk announced yesterday that he would be taking some time off for the holidays and would not be adding new posts until after Jan 1. If there is such a thing as good time for a blog to perform a technical meltdown this would be it.

Blogger (and other Google products) can be infuriating with the lack of human service. I recently transferred all my posts to a Wordpress blog, which at least offers some support. But Blogger is actually easier to customize without having to delve into CSS and such. They give you a lot for free, but make you suffer for it if something goes wrong.

He did say yesterday that he was going on vacation until after New Years. I did think that the missing blog this morning was a little drastic though.

Maybe the Blogger automation system misinterpreted his notice to us readers.

Hmmm, why did I even look this morning if I knew he was going on vacation????

Thank you, nice of you to do this.

Humans at Google?
Really?
who'd have guessed...?

It's back (although Kirk is still on vacation) 4:45 p.m. Eastern

The old adage "you get what you pay for" rings more true on the Internet than almost anywhere else.

Kirk's blog pops up for me. I assume that means it's working again. But on TOP, everything following your disclaimer on the post suddenly drops into tiny agate type. I've noticed this before, but it seems to correct later. This has been happening for a few weeks as near as I can remember.

John,
I actually taught myself the rudiments of html by messing around with the Blogger template. I kinda miss that, actually.

Mike,

The site seems to be back up now - 7:15 PM.

"This is no doubt very temporary..."

Well, of course it is.
Tomorrow is 12/21/12.

IMHO the only daily fix for me is T.O.P.

Get yourself a Bluehost account and do a self hosted Wordpress website. I run several blogs and it's the only way to go and it's cheap!
