It seems that I’m not the only one experiencing some problems and weird things with Bloglines as even ProBlogger Darren Rowse has also noticed them in the last 24 hours. Lucky him, I’ve been noticing some problems and bugs in Bloglines since last week.
Folder would indicate there are items I haven’t checked out but when I do, they are empty. For the past three days, I thought everyone in my blogroll has taken a break from blogging all at the same time because Bloglines has not shown any updates from them. Curious enough, I directly accessed one of my daily reads and to my surprise, I’ve missed three posts already! The same goes for the rest of the blogs to which I subscribed with Bloglines.
Sure these problems are just minor bugs but since I’ve been bearing with them for almost a week now, it has started to disrupt my RSS reading rituals and my blogging cycle. What’s up with Bloglines nowadays anyway? I dumped my other RSS managers only to end up with these problems and bugs? Alas there is still hope for ProBlogger Darren Rowse has pointed me to this little message from the guys at Bloglines:
“We are aware that some users have been seeing inaccurate counts on their subscription lists. This is related to the maintanance we performed Wednesday, August 3rd which included upgrades to our databases. Unfortunately, due to the massive amount of data we store, many of the systems are taking a few days to catch up with work. There is no loss of data or functionality, but the sheer size of the synchronization is causing the inaccuracies in count to occur. We are working to speed up the synchronization and remove this bottleneck from the system in the future. In the meantime, we apologize for this inconvenience and disruption to your Bloglines reading rituals.”
