Bloglines Scheduled Outages

Posted By Darren Rowse 19th of December 2005 Blogging Tools and Services 9

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.

It’s a pity they were not able to schedule this for a weekend when traffic is so much lighter.

  8. I’m a little suprised by the time of the move too.

  9. Bloglines Down – top ten things to do

    Bloglines had scheduled downtime tonight, and even with an advance warning I found myself surprised. I’ve come to rely on Bloglines as my information hub and without it, well, it’s just not the same. As any respectable Web 2.0 citizen who has lo…
