Checking blogger status, I saw that they were having an outage. They had removed posts from Wednesday forward, and everything would be restored soon. Phew!
As the afternoon went on I found my blog restored -- incorrectly. One post was completely missing and another that was a work in progress for next week had been published prematurely. Yikes!
So I went about fixing things -- deleting and adding back what was lost. What I couldn't restore were comments. And I realized that this is what happens when you rely on cloud services. It's hard to complain, after all they are free.
Nevertheless, I apologize for any confusion, and the extra mailings for e-mail subscribers. Feel free to add your comments back to this week's posts.
