This is what a Blogspot outage looks like
If you were trying to get to Respectful Insolence last night and couldn't, this is why. Blogspot appeared to be down for about three hours last night, as you can see from the graph. I made a cursory check last night, and it appeared that every Blogspot blog was down. Is it my imagination or selective memory, or Blogspot outages becoming more frequent?
In any case, I can't wait to make the move to ScienceBlogs now; I hope to "go live" soon. More information will be forthcoming when I have a firm date, but I'm hoping to pull this off by February 14 or 15 at the latest, and it might be a whole lot earlier than that.
