Friday, February 03, 2006 is now back from a 45 minute outage. Two outages in one night. I feel like Dante from Clerks: “I’m not even supposed to be carrying the pager today!”

We’re really sorry about this spate of random downtime. As Jason mentioned, I mentioned that Monday’s fixup will lessen these types of outages in the future. The Blogger and Google engineers and ops folks are not just sitting around waiting for the next failure; we’re actively improving our infrastructure to lessen both the planned and unplanned Blogger outages.
