I just got back from a business trip, so I’ll be back to regular blogging in moment.
Regular visitors will notice that the blogrolls have returned to the front page. During the wave of visitors looking for the Nick Berg video Wizbang (and several other blogs) were loading several hundreds of thousands of page views each day. The strain on Blogrolling.com (and other centralized services) was noticeable. This presented a dilemma for customers of centralized services like Blogrolling.com – leave the code on their page and risk having their own page load extremely slow or removing the code. Most chose to move or remove their blogrolls.
Lloyd Hannesson will have the final version of the script at Dasme.org that you can upload to your server to start running your Blorolling.com blogrolls locally. As soon as he’s certain that there are no errors in the script he’ll make it available.
