Bloglines Scheduled Outages

If you rely heavily upon Bloglines for your Blogging then you might like to schedule a lighter day today as they are having significant upgrades as they move to a new data center and are predicting outages.

    Doh! I just promoted Bloglines a few days ago on Qwertyrash

    But from an IT guy’s point of view – it’s nice to see them doing it at a humane time. Altho when it all goes belly up, the techs will be working all night anyway! Maybe that’s why they scheduled it then.
