Typepad Problems

December 17, 2005 Written by Charles Cook

I wondered why I couldn't access some TypePad-based blogs yesterday. Via Brent Simmons' post I got to an update on the Six Apart site. Given that it is going to take several days to restore everything it must have been a pretty serious meltdown. They won't be having a very pleasant weekend. As a developer I agree with Brent that they deserve our moral support. If we haven't been somewhere similar at some point in our careers then we've probably been very lucky. As a non-tech customer I imagine I might be somewhat less forgiving.

UPDATE: Niall Kennedy has the transcript of an interview he did with Anil Dash of Six Apart, in which they discussed yesterday's problems.
