The Google Blog was unavailable for a short time tonight. We quickly learned from our initial investigation that there was no systemwide vulnerability for Blogger. We’ll let you know more about what did happen once we finish looking into it.

Update: We’ve determined the cause of tonight’s outage. The blog was mistakenly deleted by us (d’oh!) which allowed the blog address to be temporarily claimed by another user. This was not a hack, and nobody guessed our password. Our bad.

and DRS3 [swissgerman youth radio station specialising in blog-dissing] hold your horses, you can’t quote this as a sign that blogs are dead. they are back!

[oh gosh, how do you even mistakingly delete a blog?]
here’s a little prayer: dear uhm whoever it is i pray to [probably still the flying spaghetti monster], please help me that i never mistakingly delete my blog. or that i at least made a backup of my database recently. amen.
