According to most members, this affects only blogs and not the administration section. This is a relief as we can still create an entry without much trouble.
There has been no responce from BD regarding the issue, the person in charge could be working hard fixing the problem as of this moment or he is asleep and will get to it soon. (It just means human needs sleep)
Since there's not been an explanation, we can only make assumptions of what might be causing this uneasiness:
Server overloaded would be the most likely explanation. It's could be fixed pretty soon.
BlogDrive could be upgrading server, hence we get a temporary outage. In the past, there has always been a notice about server upgrade but currently we get nothing after . There was even a homepoll surveying what members message members prefers but the BD admin must have decided to obmit it. To be honest, I would rather have the server upgrade message than nothing.
Exceeded monthly bandwidth. Sounds stupid but it is one of the possibilities.
Could be a DoS attack. DoS attack is an attack on a computer system or network that causes a loss of service to users, typically the loss of network connectivity and services by consuming the bandwidth of the victim network or overloading the computational resources of the victim system. Let's all hope this is not the case.
It could be something else, if you have any suggestion you can post a comment. Let's hope it's just temporary.
*Update: there's word on the main tagboard from the admin, about some new software updation. Let's keep our finger's crossed as this disaster comes to past. Helpee » I'm going out to the data center again. Things will be bichen soon. Been updating some new software. - There you have it.
As we've long been aware of the kind of dodgy service that iwebtunes or iwebmusic offers, it's just about time they are taken out of business.
Here's the news: The US Federal Trade Commission reported yesterday that a court had shut down three Internet companies on charges of distributing spyware without users' consent. Enternet Media, Inc. and Conspy & Co. Inc, based in California, and Iwebtunes, based in Ohio, had their assets frozen.
Rejoice, everyone! We've won one battle against spyware. Sadly, there are still more to fight on.
Another BlogDrive user's complaint, Allison writes for wabimysabi and has been featured on the main BlogDrive page as a featured subscribers before. Read it here.
She talks about her overall opinion with BlogDrive which both involves good and bad points, stressing on the "Page cannot be displayed"
error issue which has been annoying me and (I'm pretty sure) many
others as well. However, I think it can't be entirely blamed on BD
because it may just be the connection problem on individuals, or the
host server that BD is using. Nevertheless, it's really annoying.
Here are some interesting stuff she touch on:
not sure what's going on behind the scenes of BlogDrive at the
moment. If they were upgrading servers, or tweaking the
features... surely it would be in their best interest to post a notice
to that effect on the main page.
The Forum. What
to say about the forum, except that one has to have an enormous set of
balls and a bag of bravado to go and ask for assistance or feedback
there. It scares me.
HAHA, ain't that true?
But now since Christine and Andy is gone, everything is calm
and peace. I assure you that you do not have to be afraid to post in
has better features than Blogger or LiveJournal, but frankly, if they
had a tagboard on the main page, I wouldn't have signed up for their
services back in the day, particularly if it were the apparent
focal point of the page. In short, I think BD needs a bit of slick,
detached professionalism to kick up it's image a notch or two. Am I
nervous? A little bit. I want BlogDrive to succeed. I
want BlogDrive to eventually kick Blogger's dauber into the dirt.
I also don't want to lose all this pointless garbage I've written and
become so attached to.
For the record, I am willing to
help out BlogDrive in any way possible, and that includes not only
renewing my account, but upgrading it as well. It still beats
anybody else's blogging service hands down.
I feel you, I'm sure most people do but this is up to the Administrator of BlogDrive to make it happen.
