I need your help testing a new blog I have set up on blog.BolesUniversity.com — hosted by Blogger — for a special, super-secret, project I am working on and I hope I can share the details with you soon.

Blog @BolesUniversity.com

Please let me know your experience on that blog both here and there so you can directly report your comparative experiences.

    Thanks for the feedback. Can you hit it now? I just checked and the blog is there and I have new comments this morning.
    Perhaps this is a propagation issue? I was shocked to see the CNAME change immediately take effect here. We might not be so lucky across the world…

  2. UPDATE:
    Ha! I was just “talking to Chris” in comments on the blog @BU and this page loaded over there:

    Server Error
    The server encountered a temporary error and could not complete your request.
    Please try again in 30 seconds.

    We’re going on 5 minutes and I still can’t get back in…

  3. Hi David,
    Sometimes Blogger doesn’t work properly. Always save a draft if the article doesn’t publish properly.

  4. Excellent advice, Chris! I always copy and save EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE, Chris — even right here on WP.com just to be safe.
    I’m from the old CP/M Kaypro days where you better save everything all the time or you lose everything in a power surge.
    There are some people who are having trouble hitting the new blog website address. I guess some parts of the world are still propagating the CNAME change…

  5. Very strange, fruey!
    What happens when you try to go here:
    Does it load or not or resolve to blog.bolesuniversity.com?
    I have a friend in California who could not hit the blog yesterday, but on Sunday we had access from Jersey City, Indiana, North Dakota and the UK just to name a few.
    How often does your ISP refresh their DNS tables?

    Forget DNSstuff.com! None of my CNAME forwards show up there correctly:
    All come up dead and they all work just fine — but if you do domain search on those subdomains here:
    You’ll see everything is set up and WHOIS-able. I guess Google doesn’t like DNSstuff.com, eh?
    So are you able to hit the blog or not?
