Blotanical.com

So is there something going on with the Blotanical website that I don't know about? Is there site maintenance/site overhaul going on? Because I haven't been able to access it for 2 days. It just keeps saying 'Internet Explorer Cannot Display the Webpage'. I've tried going in the long way, just in case my bookmarked link was bad. No dice.

Has my membership been revoked? Have I been kicked unceremoniously to the curb? Is everyone else getting in just fine, and it's just me?

I think Blotanical (if it indeed still exists) needs to put me through a 12-step program... O_O

Comments would definitely be appreciated.

:)

Hahaha, I've been going through withdrawal for two days as well!

Kyna said...

I'm just glad I'm not the only person. Because I wouldn't have known how to fix it lol.

Hi Kyna,

It seems offline for everyone. I know that they had some sporadic outages over the past week. I hope they are back up soon :^)

Kyna said...

Thanks for the info Noelle! :D

Bangchik said...

Same thing everywhere... I heard its about changing to a new site and doing data migration. ~bangchik

Kyna said...

Yep, I just found all that out myself. There wasn't really anything about it when I left for work this morning, and now there's a ton of posts I wish I had looked at before I posted my own lol.

Thank you!

Hi Kyna,

Stuart says that the site is going to be down for a few days yet as they are sorting out some issues and migrating to a new server. He is on Twitter if want to keep up with whats happening http://twitter.com/bussogardener

We are all going though cold turkey I think!

RO xx

I was wondering how long it had been down. Didn't notice it yesterday, but today once I did notice it, I checked it an inordinate amount of times today. Garden crack.

Jan (Thanks For Today) said...

I had the same questions yesterday & today. Wonder if we'll even recognize it when we get back there. Stuart is doing some 'overhauls' of the site. I can't get there all that often anyway...it does get to be quite time consuming;-)

Amy said...

I am glad to hear we are all in the same boat. I was wondering if it was just me. :/

Kyna said...

Thank you, RO :D Now I just have to take up drinking until the site's back up. O_O :P

Jess: LOL. Is that wrong of us? Probably. But if it's wrong, I don't wanna be right! :D

Jan: Hehe, now that I know there are going to be overhauls, I can't wait to see it :D

Amy: You're not alone! We're all jonesing together :D

Sunny said...

I thought it was just me... :( Hope they fix it soon...now about that drink... lol

Meredith said...

LOL, Kyna, I was fearing I was some kind of addict; at least I know I'm not alone. I also had the paranoid thought that I'd broken some unspoken rule and been kicked out, and posted to spread the word this afternoon, hoping no one else would have to go through that on top of the other withdrawal symptoms. ;)

Kyna said...

Cheers, Sunny! *clinks glasses*

Meredith: An unspoken rule...like we're Masons or something LOL

Bernie said...

Whew! No need to panic then ... withdrawal symptoms under control now! I like so many other thought I'd done something wrong!

Thanks so much for clearing up the misunderstanding ... I feel much better now.

Kyna said...

You're welcome Bernie lol. I'm glad for the whole 'following' feature of Blogspot, so that I'm in touch with people outside of Blotanical lol.

Jayne said...

Even though I signed up with Blotanical, I now cannot remember my password and when I click on the "forgot password?" link to have a new password sent to me, the email never arrives. I like the following feature in blogger too, that's how I keep up with people.

Kyna said...

I'm sure there will be a way to do it once the 'new and improved' Blotanical is up? Maybe? Hopefully? lol. I hate having to remember all of my different passwords. I know it's for my protection, but still...:P

Jim Groble said...

i've been jonesin since friday. i got the shacks. I got so used to just going to Blotanical to look at all my faves that I got lazy about my blog list. I hope it's just maintanence.

Wow, 8 inches of snow. Are the schools closed and the stores out of milk and bread?

Nice pics as always. jim

Kyna said...

Haha, yeah. My husband went to the grocery store to buy dinner that day, and he said the shelves were cleaned out of everything. Bread milk, cigarettes and beer lol. People gotta have the staples :P

Ian said...

Thanks Kyna for doing a post on this.
Amazing how you get used to going to a site and then when it is not there you miss it.
Have a great weekend
cheers Ian

Kyna said...

You're welcome :D Yeah, I've been checking for days now...I know they said it would take a few to move to a new server. But I'm impatient lol.

Rothschild Orchid said...

It's back, but not quite on both feet yet!

Carol said...

It is quieter and a bit empty without being able to just see all of you out there at blotanical. Addictive yes... it is our community... ;>) It still is not working full tilt. ;>( but then neither am I!

Kyna said...

Yep, I was disappointed to see it down again for another couple of days. I love that place, because it helps me find new blogs easily....
