Blogspot's new annoyance

This is what I am talking about (click for larger):

What the hell is that?!?

Whatever it is, it rotates. That is, it affects different blogs at different times. Yesterday I got one of those at Damian Penny's site; today I can read him just fine. I suspect it's some kind of upgrade thingy Blogger is doing.

The other fun thing is if you see that message, sometimes if you put a "www." in front of the address, the site will show up just fine.

I hate blogspot.

Trying hitting reload or refresh. That's worked when I've run into it. Today, my uploaded pictures have turned into little icons; the pictures come back when I right-click the icon and tell the menu to display picture.

Of course, this is not how to keep clients with TypePad looming up.

I ran into that last night with Volokh, so I'm glad I'm, or he's, not the only one. I guess I'm glad ...

It's hit me a couple of times. I've got a much higher tolerance than most people for Blogger's idiosyncracies but I'm getting close to my limit. If librarians got paid real money, I'd take my site someplace else tomorrow.

Several refreshes seems to always load the page when it gives this, but I'm not too pleased. What happened to Google improving things?

I think Google gave up after I migrated to MT.

At least, that's my theory when I forget my medication...
