0 Admin Update: Service Fail

If you've been reading this site and noticed that more recent posts have disappeared, you're not alone.

Blogger has been having maintenance and service problems since earlier this week, and for the past two days I have not been able to access to my own blogspot account to post, comment, or design any aspect of the site - along with thousands of other bloggers have been locked out of their own sites.

The missing posts and comments are supposed to get restored. If not, I will have to try reposting the Daily Kos entry that has been lost, and rewrite and repost an entry on new tests for neuroborreliosis which has been lost.

I do a periodic backup of all my site posts - but hadn't just before this recent maintenance snafu. My apologies to my readers whose comments were lost - I don't know if those will get restored, even if entries are.

Edited to Update:

FYI - I just found this from the Blogger Buzz web site posted around 10:30 AM PST:

What a frustrating day. We’re very sorry that you’ve been unable to publish to Blogger for the past 20.5 hours. We’re nearly back to normal — you can publish again, and in the coming hours posts and comments that were temporarily removed should be restored.  Thank you for your patience while we fix this situation.  We use Blogger for our own blogs, so we’ve also felt your pain. 
Here’s what happened: during scheduled maintenance work Wednesday night, we experienced some data corruption that impacted Blogger’s behavior. Since then, bloggers and readers may have experienced a variety of anomalies including intermittent outages, disappearing posts, and arriving at unintended blogs or error pages. A small subset of Blogger users (we estimate 0.16%) may have encountered additional problems specific to their accounts. Yesterday we returned Blogger to a pre-maintenance state and placed the service in read-only mode while we worked on restoring all content: that’s why you haven’t been able to publish.  We rolled back to a version of Blogger as of Wednesday May 11th, so your posts since then were temporarily removed. Those are the posts that we’re in the progress of restoring. 
Again, we are very sorry for the impact to our authors and readers.  We try hard to ensure Blogger is always available for you to share your thoughts and opinions with the world, and we’ll do our best to prevent this from happening again.
