Blogger News Rant

Before you make a new post with the blogger software you see a screen known as the "dashboard" that allows you to choose which of your several blogs to post in. Below it is a part of the screen entitled blogger news. Today, on in the middle of July in 2006 is read as follows:

Blogger News
The Buzz

Maintenance on Monday, November 14

We are planning a two hour outage this evening from 9p to 11p (PST). This is to complete the network maintenance we've been performing over the last several weeks.

Update: Completed.

Maintenance on Saturday

We will be upgrading our network access this weekend which will require downtime for both Blogger and Blog*Spot. The outage will occur at noon (PST) on Saturday and last for 2 hours. Thanks for your patience during this maintenance window.

Update: Completed.

I know that the folks over in blogger land are strapped, but would it kill them to take a minute to either keep their news feature updated, or to ditch it all together?

Not to mention the unplanned difficulties when Blogger Dashboard tries to eat your template.

It gets even worse when it has a screen asking for more barbeque sauce.
