TypePad Blogging Service Eats a Weekend’s Worth of Posts

We were going to follow up post about something we wrote about a few days ago, but it would have involved linking to a Typepad blog. Too bad for us, then, because Typepad is seriously bloopsed at the moment. Not only is service not working—and hasn’t been for at least eight hours, we’ve been told—but posts made since Friday have been eaten by the system.

Downtime is quite bad. Losing bloggers’ posts is a crime against writing, like bloggers’ posts.

    It was as if millions of angsty voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced.

  2. Mark Smith, an employee of 6A (but not on the TypePad team itself), said that no posts have been lost.

    He said to me in IRC, “I have been following the situation, I know what’s up, and I know that the posts are safe in the database, they just might need republishing”.

    So any TypePad bloggers out there with ‘missing’ posts, republish!
