Known Issues

I have received quite a number of emails from readers concerned about the ability to search through the Gazette for information they know is available, as well as the inability to reach the site if they locate it through Google’s search engine. I have, along with many others, made Blogger aware of the problems. Here is the current information they are providing:
A small percentage of Blogger users have experienced error messages this afternoon as the result of what appears to be an ongoing distributed denial of service attack aimed at multiple services across the web. Google has a variety of systems in place to help counteract these types of attacks, and we believe the majority of affected users can now access their blogs. We're continuing to work to minimize the impact to affected Blogger users. No other Google products have been affected.

Searching from the navbar is currently returning incomplete data for some users. We're investigating our search functionality and will hopefully have a fix out shortly. As a workaround, you can use search operators on Google.com to search for content specifically on your blog.

For those of you wishing to search for specific content, please use the following search parameters: site:www.mainstgazette.com KEYWORD

I will keep you updated on the status of the fixes, as I am given information, and I am sincerely sorry for any inconvenience.
