"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Problems With Blogger Feeds

Several blogs aren't updating properly - pls go and see Ollie at The Red Rag for further info.


  1. GV Many thanks for this, sadly you blog appears to have joined the list of those not updating on Blogrolls. It appears Blogger are aware of the problem and are working on it. It is due to counter DOS attack measures.

  2. scratch that yours is working again. So is mine and GOTs still loads not though.

  3. I've had so many problems with Blogger - I checked out wordpress a few weeks ago so might go back and have another look.
    btw Ollie, when I asked Wikio to include my RSS feed (which I copied from view/page source) they emailed me back saying ok fine but when I clicked the RSS url nothing happened except a blank page. Do you have any ideas about what I'm doing wrong? This is the link I used:
    Should I have used this one:

  4. They use rss so try:

    I used http://the-red-rag.blogspot.com/rss.xml and it worked fine.

    If you can't get it working email Dan Levy at dan*wikio.com

    *I switched the @ to protect his email from the spambots.

  5. Thanks v much Ollie, I'll give it a try.

  6. Google just locked me out of blogger for a while claiming my computer was being used in DOS attack. Google Help suggested I do a scan - did - nothing. Now I'm back on???

  7. It happened to me too Scunnert - it was the same last week and it's happened to others too - they've got big problems, perhaps it's time to migrate the blog.

  8. Do the two of you have firewalls? ZoneAlarm has a good reputation - and it's free.

  9. Yes Fausty - I've got the lot. I should think everyone who uses a pc has a firewall by now and lots of people had the same problems last week. I think it's Blogger - Ollie says they're tweaking the system again after a DoS attack.
