Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

java.blogs - nice crippling update

I like how java.blogs updated their site the night before last. The changes seem to be cosmetic for the most part, with a cleaner look n' feel and some language features as well. Seeing these updates is good, and based on the update last week (where they forgot to find.replace ${} with "java.blogs"), it looks like Atlassian might be releasing the software behind java.blogs.

However, there's one thing they screwed up in their most recent update: the software ceases to function.

Ever since they updated, no new feed entries have shown up on the first page. You can tell because the last entries added are experiencing record hit numbers. WTF Atlassian? Did you update the software and forget to test that it works? ;-)

java.blogs' lack of updates

In reality, I can't be too upset. This lack of updates is boosting my productivity.

Haha - I just visited and noticed the same thing. And I thought "I should write a blog entry about that". Then I thought "but since javablogs isn't getting any updates, no one will see my blog entry about javablogs not working until javablogs starts working again!"

I wouldn't call that look nice. What is up with those popup menus? The old one was strong and stylish and this one look really amateurish.

That explains the empty daily update mail I got, I guess.

It looks like they fixed it - I read your entry here because it got posted on javablogs. Oh, the ironing...

I had volunteered to take over the site but they had already hired someone to fix it up. I guess QA is not their strong point...

I think this is the second time this has happened in a couple of weeks. As you say though, keeps productivity up!
