So I learned this morning from the blogosphere that WordPress.com and all their hosted blogs were down for at least an hour or so last night. From what I can tell, from about 7:30-8:00 local time here, until almost midnight, they were up and down—and pretty much just plain down for at least the first hour. I managed to be checking in intermittently on the blog throughout the period, and I never noticed. So…I guess I’m just that good. At missing everything that happens.
I will say, though, apparently, despite the fact that I’d guess 90+% of people on WordPress.com are freeloaders, the WordPress folks rushed to get the blogs back up before even their own pages and stats systems. So…go WordPress.
