And We're Back

Looks like Blogger is back up.

For those of you who don't follow along on Facebook: Blogger, which is the platform Stonekettle Station rides on top of, has been down for a couple of days due to a software upgrade that went bad.  The outage has affected various blogs in a number of different ways depending on how they are hosted.  Some blogs went offline completely, some lost data. Stonekettle Station is hosted on its own domain and remained up and readable, but with new posts and commenting disabled.

So, if you tried to make a comment over the last two or three days and were rejected, it's not you, it's me (OK, that's not true, it's really you, you, you and all you).

According to the Blogger website, the system is now mostly restored and stable. Stonekettle Station appears no worse for wear, posting and commenting are again operational.

I'm going to wait a bit before posting anything significant, just to make sure. If things remain stable, there will be a new post up later this evening on recently declared Republican presidential candidate, Newt Gingrich.

See you in a bit.


  1. But the Bullwinkle post still seems to have a bunch of erroneous links to it, instead of to the right post.

    Oh well...

  2. I would expect a bit of weirdness for a while. However, if past experience is any guide, Blogger will get it all sorted out eventually and it'll be even better than it was.

  3. Take your time in the Gingrich thing. I really don't need to know anything more about that Grifter and the latest BS to spew forth from his pie hole.

  4. I think Newt will make a perfect ringmaster for the upcoming republican presidential circus.

  5. I'm always pulling up the rear, late for the party and/or the crisis. Whichever, it's over before I arrive or notice.

  6. Oh goody. You're going to focus on that scumbag, Newt. Looking forward to it.

  7. I kept hearing about something going wrong with blogger a few days back, but you're the first person to explain the trouble folks were having.

    I have been out of the loop for a few days, so probably was not affected...

    Anyway, thanks for this and I look froward to the Newt post... which I am about to go read!
