What's up?

Anybody know what's up with Blogspot?

I haven't got comment email updates in two days or so. And for a day before that it was intermittent. Strangely, whenever I make a comment to one of my posts, I get an email notification. Odd, that.

Guess I'll have to go fish around on their support page.

One of the reasons I use Blogspot instead of running my own site, is that I don't have to fool with all of the tech issues. I can, I just don't want to. Usually they're right on the ball, so this is a tad out of character. Of course, I'm not paying for the site, at the moment, soooooo I guess I shouldn't complain. And I won't, I'm just curious. Everything else seems to be working fine.


New post up on Deep Thunder.

Update: And now, strangely, comment email notification does seem to be working. Okay. It's a mystery.


  1. I've not gotten any comment emails whatsoever since Tuesday, not even mine.

    And yeah. This is the first time that Blogspot has been at all problematic (not counting the whole upgrade mess they had a while back when Google first acquired it).

  2. I just thought I was being boring. I guess I'll have to check the blog again (having finally slain the alligators of the day, they were up to the armpits today).

  3. Google's just ahead of themselves. They're trying to send your comments over the 700Mhz spectrum. Presumptuous of them to think they'll win for sure, but still, I can't fault their confidence.

    Maybe they should provide all blogspot users with a phone preloaded with Android to receive the 700Mhz comment updates? I'd move my site...

  4. Yeah, that must be it. See I had my receiver set for spread spectrum pseudo-random freq-hopping in the 500Mhz band...

  5. I've been having that problem too. It's been intermittent for me. Weirdness.

  6. Just got caught up on Deep Thunder. I love the guys who dress up like sci-fi soldiers and paint themselves green. Hee!

  7. Glad you're enjoying it, Anne.

    I try to throw in a nod to my favorite writes every other post or so. Clarke and Niven were called out by name. The green guys are an obvious poke at Scalzi. There are others.
