Tune up? WTF?

Friday, June 15, 2007 | 05:45 PM

Typead, the blogging software I use, was a disaster today. Total debacle. No other words for it.

First, when posting a new item, this appeared:


Quick tune up? WTF? We were down for hours. And, that post was lost -- gone completely.

If you are going to give me a "tune up," then how about:

1) Emailing me about it in advance;

2) Scheduling it for the middle of the night;

3) Understand what the definition of the word "quick" is.

Then, when attempting to post a comment explaining the problem to readers, there was this notice:Tune_up_2

Look, I've been very happy with Typepad for a few years now. Yes, they have had glitches, but they have been pretty straightforward and honorable about 'fessing up and fixing it.

Not today, though. Nothing more frustrating then being spoonfed a steaming pile of enzyme-free donkey fazoo. Whoever was in charge of today's clusterfuck better get their "fazoo" together -- and fast -- or they may see a mass migration.

Today was simply unacceptable. Look, I don't expect 24/7/365 service, but please, don't bullshit me about the outages.


Tune up? Puh-leeze . . .
