Blog Maintenance: Prepare for an Outage

A quick FYI from management: This blog, and all blogs on the site, will undergo an upgrade from noon ET Tuesday till about 3 pm ET Wednesday. You may see a limited number of posts on some blogs in that time frame, but you will not be able to comment. Some blogs -- like this one -- will not have posts at all till tomorrow afternoon.

The upgrade will allow our staff to address some sorely needed technical issues.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and thanks for your patience.

Any suggestions for coping strategies?

I swear to god, if I have to work while I'm at work for the next 27 hours, I'm NEVER going to forgive Washington Post.

Are we back?

Posted by: P Diddy | August 6, 2008 5:36 PM

Oh, thank goodness.

The feeling of loss was palpable...

Posted by: Nate in the PDX | August 6, 2008 5:45 PM

Time for a new thread. No use crying over spilt milk.

Awesome. This is like a bastardized version of registration. If I don't remember to type in my name, I truly assigned the title "Anonymous."

It looks like the hijinks and tomfoolery of ids will continue.

(6:13 PM was me - as will be the next couple of test posts)

Bet you can't guess who this is???

Do not fret. This is not Nate but CBT.

Just testing to see if "registration" has really changed anything.

Posted by: Nate in the PDX | August 6, 2008 6:19 PM

Wow, just wow.

I also just learned that losable type is still lost, we just get scolded by WaPo IT department via another screen.

I don't think the transformation is yet complete, CBT. Stay tuned...

Does this mean I can look forward to another 24+ hour outage?

If so, Bonita, you might want to name that thread "Blog Maintenance: Prepare For The Outrage."

to blog or not to blog

Posted by: Alex35332 | August 6, 2008 10:18 PM

I'll post tomorrow and every single day after that for the rest of my life, so help me GOB.

Maybe not, but definitely tomorrow.

Does anyone have a stamp?

Posted by: P Diddy | August 7, 2008 11:16 AM



does that have something to do with "land line"?
