Issues

Well, as you can clearly see, I am making some progress. However, Blogger has gone down several times the past couple days, which is unusual. In the 2+ years I have been using the service, I have never known the servers to get overloaded and it has happened at least 4-5 times since yesterday.

Of course, much of what I am doing requires me to go through, opening old posts and changing a few tags, then republishing them. Since it sometimes takes 3-4 minutes or longer for it to publish via FTP, I kept putting it off. I moved the blog back onto the BlogSpot servers to circumvent that. I hope I am not the one breaking Blogger, but if I am... you know. Screw 'em.

God knows I have sat around for days on-end, waiting for posts to go through FTP! Besides, Google is the online Microsoft and that drives me nuts - it isn't like they're hurting for money, for fuck's sake! If you offer a free service like Blogger, then you should have your ducks in a row! Don't tell me Google can't afford servers!

Maybe if they cleared out all the search histories they keep, we wouldn't be experiencing outages? Just a thought.

Anyway, still working on the tags. I'm about 3/4 of the way through them. After that, it's back to the design itself. I will republish the blog to the site tonight, but you may still be redirected to BlogSpot occasionally over the next few weeks, as I continue to tweak things. All I am doing with the tags right now is streamlining them; once the list is down to a manageable size, I will eventually go back through and work on assigning them properly so that it is easier to find things.
