A bunch of people are down – I just went skipping around my blogroll and got ‘Server Error 500’ from Joe Irvin, GUYK, Justice Day, KeesKennis, Lemons and Lollipops, Unclaimed Territory, and WeeDram.
Slowly it dawned on me… Blogspot is down. Missed all you guys.
Scienceblogs and WordPress are both up, as are the independent servers of everyone else on the blogroll. Recently Terry at dailytroll.com (I see invisible people) had her hosting company go south on her so she was off the net for quite a while getting into a new host. She was able to restore most of her posts, though. Back up your database, folks!
While we’re at it, Gran’s OnBran has quit blogging. I enjoyed reading her personal stories and very British take on life. Guess I’ll sadly remove the link next time I tidy up the template.
On a positive note, Chris Clarke of Creek Running North is back up after assessing the threat to his elderly dog, Zeke. Noting that activists pets have been killed in the past, everlasting shame to anyone who would ever threaten someone’s pet. Glad it turned out OK this time.
