happy st. patrick's day everyone!
okay now that that is out of the way, perhaps this post is not quite appropriate for school, but sometimes i look at fbs as therapy. LOL!
the last few days, blogger completely whacked out. a few days ago, it was down for about 45 minutes, and i was like, "okay, no big deal." plus, it was planned, i.e. they put a notice up on the "status" page saying it would be down. like i said, no big deal, because um, i guess i could find something else to do with my time (but what?!?! just kidding, i had to take a shower or something right?)
last night, blogger wonked out BIG TIME.
~ about 8:30PM - someone emailed me and said - "i can't access your site."
~ i went to my site. and received a 403 error. i thought, "not a big thing, they have done this before - must be maintenance"
~ i got a few more emails and IMs
~ FOUR HOURS LATER, the site was still down.
~ i woke up this morning, i had three emails, one even as late as 7 am saying they couldn't access my site
~ the blogger "status" page says something about a filer and replacing it. still. this is almost 12 hours later
i can't tell you what this did to my traffic, which i know will be fine once the site is back up.
but i will tell you that i didn't know how insanely addicted i was to blogging. when the site was down for the first hour, it was an irritiation, but i remained calm. after two hours, i was sort of nervous. i was constantly refreshing my site's page (ever 20 seconds?) like i had a nervous tick. after more time, i couldn't take it. i got up and paced around my apartment, drank some water, and started muttering to myself, and i'm sure i was using very nasty language when referring to the evil dark overlord called "blogger." i opened up ms word to just simply write. i couldn't. i kept clicking over to the internet to check. every time, i got the error message, and every time, i swore and wanted to punch my laptop, pull my hair out, scream, etc. i think...it might be a problem. i mean, those are withdrawal symptoms, right?
sorry for the rant-ish post. i think i just needed to get that out, and you know, see if anyone had the same thing happen, and if they were psychologically scarred like me after that. lol!
