PU It Stinks: NEW Google Blogger is BUGGY!!!


First off, let's start by saying that the gang here at Pittsburgh Underground does love Google. They've got great appications (many of them free) for users to express themselves, find information, and to do all those techno-babble things that most of us modern mortals can't seem to live without.

One of these great applications is Google Blogger (yes, you're using it now by reading this article). Free to everyone and a great way to publish information, entertainment, and everything in between.

On July 7th, Google Blogger updated it's dashboard interface, streamlining it in an attempt to make it more user friendly to those who create with it. It is an improvement - a great improvement, if it wasn't for ALL THE BUGS...

That's right kids, BUGS. The new Google Blogger is bugger than a baitshop - we've experienced more 'Service Unavailable' messages merely by trying to access the dashboard, post, or preview since it launched last week. In a nutshell - IRRITATING, not to mention inconvenient to both us and you, our fair readers.

Granted, this is a free service of Google, BUT purchasing our new URL wasn't - making this a bitter pill to snort. When something ain't broke, why try and fix it. The old Google Blogger could be problematic at moments (our most recent issue being our new URL wouldn't work with the old website), but it always posted our articles and we never had problems accessing it's mechanics.

So where do we go from here? Patience young padawans. We aren't the only group experiencing the bite of Google Blogger-bugs so we do have faith that Google is addressing the problems. Sadly, in a world of instant gratification, all we can do is wait and hope that the problems can be addressed sooner rather than later.

Until then, all we can all do is grin, bear it, and stay tuned...
