Trouble In Paradise

Blogger Beta rocks - at least, its feature set and functionality is way better than Blogger Alpha. That doesn't mean that it doesn't have any problems though.

Any time you test a beta version of a product, you have to expect problems. So my bud, Bob in Thailand, converted his blog Roberto's Retreat to Beta. And it looked pretty good, for the first day. But now you can't see it at all. Or at least neither he or I can see it. We can edit the content, but we can't view it in any way.

We're sorry, but we were unable to complete your request.

Needless to say, this sucks. I had briefly considered moving PChuck's Network to Beta - it is badly in need of a face lift (and maybe more), and this would be a great way to start.

But not now.

And yes, I asked Bob
Did you report the problem? And did you reply to the botmail?
And he answered
So now, we wait.

(Edit 8/18 15:15): Bob, take heart. You are not alone. Now, maybe a visit from Blogger Employee.
