News and Notes: Special Edition (part one)

As you may all know, Blogger has been having major issues this week and weekend. When it went down on Thurs, taking all posts and comments with it (deleted on purpose by Blogger to go back to before the mess happened) that were published after Wed morning May 11, 2011, we soon got word that those posts and comments would be back and "restored". Many have been, but not a one of the posts (8 in total from May 11 and May 12) or comments that disappeared from Skeptical Eye have been restored. Blogger has now gone on to restoring comments, leaving this blog and many others left wondering why we got bypassed and if the deleted posts will ever return.

Here is the latest from Blogger Buzz:

Update (5/14 5:37 PM PST): We're making progress restoring comments, some blogs with a lot of content are taking a little more time. Thanks for bearing with us.

Update (5/13 7:46PM PST): Nearly all posts since Wednesday are restored, now bringing back comments from last couple days. We expect the comments to be back this weekend or sooner.-Blogger Is Back

No new updates or word on whether we should still wait for our posts to be restored. I will therefore begin to attempt restoring the posts myself if it doesn't happen very soon.

Since I haven't written a News and Notes in a while, and have much more to say, for now, I'm calling this "part one". I'm optimistic that there will be a "part two", about as optimistic as I am that Blogger will ever restore our lost posts.

If the post you are commenting on is more than 30 days old, your comment will have to await approval before being published. Rest assured, however, that as long as it is not spam, it will be published in due time.
