Since it has been quite a long time since we have been active, we are going to be Under Construction for a while - trying new fonts, designs, and updating our sidebar stuff. Hopefully we will get it how we like it soon so it won't change too much!

Also - Can someone tell me how to get rid of the giant gap below this notice - I cannot figure out how to do it - thanks!!

Problems with visiting and commenting

Hi all - just wanted to let you know that I have been trying to visit but have had problems with both blogger and reader - I am not sure what is up or if they are related. I get the Error 503 message sometimes trying to comment (hint for anyone else getting it - what I have started doing is typing the comment, copying it and that way if the error comes up I can just paste it - it usually will work on the second attempt if you refresh). Since I get all my blogs through Reader it is a pain - the feed is there but then I get an error, get a "that feed doesn't exist" and get kicked out. So seriously, I have been tryign to visit you all - I just can''t - I think there is a conspiracy or something - someone doesn't want me to get to visit all my friends for the past couple weeks!!

Anyway, I will keep trying but if you don't see me this is why - I will try to get a real cat post up later today!!

Ha, GMTA - we have had to resort to doing the same thing this week. Lots and lots of server errors popping up. We understand.

Just keep trying. We would miss you so much if you weren't posting and commenting.

I do know what you are referring to because I had the same issues in the past. I am beginning to think that Wordpress or Typepad is better than Blogger and I've been thinking of switching but I heard it is hard to do.
Have you had a problem trying to make comments on my blog...I hope not!
Do you have a good antivirus?

Ruh roh...hope it gets fixed soon.

Angel and Kirby said...

We have seen some problems like that, too!

Oh, we HATE blogger conspiracies! Everything has been A-OK on my end but lots of times, Blogger decides it just doesn't like us Wordpressers. I hope things get all cleared up soon!

We've been having the exact same problem. We try to remember to copy before we hit post, but don't always remember - and invariably, that is when we get the 503 error (and have to retype our comment)

We looked on blogger help but weren't able to find an answer - just that lots of people were having the same problem.

Old Kitty said...

I've been getting that error message a lot recently and yes like you have learnt to copy and paste!

hopefully it'll sort itself out soon!

Take care

We have been getting the Error 503 problem too for the last week or so and have been copy and pasting. Now google has decided not to put our posts in reader. We usually post at midnight for the coming day but today's post never made it to reader so we haven't had many visitors. Then to top it all, Blogger won't display our avatar in blogger embedded comments but will in all others. Blogger and Google are driving us mad!!!

I had that exact same problem 2 days ago (and I resorted to the copy and paste too). I kept thinking it was me as it was taking 3x as long to leave comments, but yesterday and today things have been ok...at least so far.


Au and Target said...

Eek and we thought it was only us! Hope everything clears up soon, so we can visit more often. Meow to the kitties.

503 times DITTO!!!!

We hate computer gremlins! There is nothing worse than typing a Great comment (usually a long one) and after hitting Publish, getting an error message that it did not go through. The copy-and-paste idea is a good one!

meowmeowmans said...

Oh no! We've gotten that message (only) a few times. Sorry you are getting so many of them. Hope you are doing well otherwise, sweet friends!

Cory said...

Our reader is empty!!! As Fin would say...What the Fluff? We are just trying to visit from our blog list our blog.
