Google Apologizes for Blogger Outages

Anyone using Blogger has had an eventful time this week with outages occurring 5 days out of the last 7. The funny Catch-22 is that Google engineer's were locked out of their own status blog so they couldn't even tell anyone what was happening (now that they've migrated to Blogger beta that won't be a problem). While I've been worried about Blogger's stability and reliability, it looks like new, more scalable hardware is being brought in so outages should be less frequent in the future.

I did get a laugh out of this "excerpt" from the Blogger Outages (a novel):
It was a dark and stormy night. The air was quiet. Too quiet. Yet stormy. Suddenly, a beep rang out from a bedside pager. The engineer woke up, grabbing a soda to sharpen his senses. Blogger was down. He needed to bring it back up
