Blogging and hosting

As I write this, all Blogger blogs are returning a “500 Internal Server error” which means about a zillion blogs, including some quite large ones, are down. This makes me realize this stuff can happen to any web hosting service. Last night this blog (and about 210,000 others) were down because our host, BlueHost, had to move their router across the parking lot from one building to another.

So, there is much gnashing of teeth in Blogger-dom now. Let’s hope Google fixes the problem quickly.

The Net is like phone service, it’s a basic part of our lives.
