Maintenance Communication



Hi,

I'm the Bloglines Plumber. Bloglines is down for a little
fixer upper. We'll now be back at 3 Am Pacific Time.
Bloglines will be all better when I'm done with it.

Thanks,
The Bloglines Plumber

So bloglines.com is under maintenance (and so is the admin part of blogs.sun.com). The only difference is that bloglines had it planned and is not using a Java stacktrace to tell you there's a problem ;-). This has me both realize how much I rely on these two very good services as well as the importance of communicating any downtime, even once the problem has occured.
