Google's Blogger and GMail down

Well, apparently the great Google isn't immune to errors either. For the last hour or so, my blog was down - I was getting the 502 error. I've seen some people reporting the same errors with their GMail accounts and such.

This is by no means a complaint. Blogger.com is, in my opinion, the best free, hosted blogging platform. They let you park a domain, they let you add ads, they allow adult content if you're into this stuff - all this for free, and you don't have to worry about server costs, huge traffic spikes from Digg and such, etc.

As for the recent downtime and server error 502, I believe there should soon be a post on Blogger Status about this.

Come, join the debate I started

As I posted earlier, I'm a member of a cool social networking site called Squidoo. They already paid me more money than Agloco ever did (LOL). It's a great social network; I have fun creating lenses (as long as they don't crash, which regrettably happens as well). Recently they gave me this cool badge for getting my debate lens in top 50:

It's about the eternal question of who would win in a fight: a pirate or a ninja. Please join!
