The latest BS from

Nov 2nd Sun

How come so quiet? Thanks to everyone for their patience while we sort this mess out.

The short story is that Blogrolling 1.0 is still mostly offline for security reasons. Serving blogrolls, pinging and a couple of other minor functions are back, but you still can’t edit your blogroll, create new blogrolls, that sort of thing.

This is killing us as much as you.

The service will continue to run in sub-standard mode while we work through the code re-write that I talked about last week. I’ve asked my team to see if we can bring back editing and adding to blogrolls while we work on Blogrolling 2.0, but it doesn’t look good at this point.

Sorry that I don’t have better or more detailed news at this point. I will post more about Blogrolling 2.0 once we get closer to the beta in a few weeks.

Thanks again for your patience and support.


How come we’re so quiet?? I hate bad grammar, but that was too good to pass up! Why should we say anything and waste our time writing an email or posting a thought when the people at simply don’t give a damn? These guys are full of CRAP! The rolls are showing, but that’s it, they are not pinging, not in ANY way. They are NOT updated, they won’t update, and we can’t do a thing about it.

They’re going to post MORE as Blogrolling 2.0 Beta gets closer in a few weeks?? I am NOT so sure that there are going to be any interested parties by then!

Sure, it’s a FREE service, and you get what you pay for, right? Let me remind y’all, these are the same people that were NOT free a while back, and they took a lot of folks money for renewal fees, and then announced that they would no longer be charging for their services. And they NEVER offered to refund so much as one penny!

I have a Fred’s Faves page, and many of you are already on it, if you’re not, and would like to be, let me know, because I am seriously considering dumping completely. As I said, it’s FREE, you can’t expect too much for that price but NO service is NO service, I don’t care how you cut it!

    Howdy Fred, Just thought I would drop by on the eve of the most important decision the American people will take in history of your great Nation.

    Don’t worry to much about the Blog Rolls buddy I know you will sort that out eventually, we all have bigger fish to fry.

    I have just posted this great pro McCain You Tube add on my site but I am worried that far to many Americans and also dumb Europeans want Obama in the White House, I am praying for a McCain victory and my thoughts are with you all at this grave time,

    God Bless America & Great Britain.

    Rogue Gunner, thank you SO much for those great thoughts and well wishes…

    Ya know, there’s some stupid people in this world, and it’s going to kick their teeth in when that pandering SOB gets in office and they realize that he can’t do even HALF of the things he has promised…

    And THAT is when the REAL trouble starts, when the TRUTH finally soaks in…

    And you know, it’s not like the morons weren’t warned in advance..

    No matter what happens tomorrow we are going to have two years of hell. The democraps will still hold the puse strings and they can’t wait to waste our hard earned money.
