Bloglines Down – Net Junkies Go Outside

It looks like “Bloglines”:http://www.bloglines.com/ had a major meltdown in their user log-on processes around 3:00AM EDT.
I’m reverse engineering this information from a “Technorati”:http://www.technorati.com/ search. At “about 7 hours ago” people are still commenting on what they read via Bloglines, then you start seeing posts with individuals apologizing for blogrolls not working or saying that they won’t be updating their sites because they can’t access their feeds. Interestingly, because this happened while much of the Americas slept, many of the posts are in Japanese, Spanish, German, French and Italian.
A bit later you see people cluing in to the fact that they are not alone and that the problem is Bloglines itself.
In the last hour or so posts have moved to the “Oh my God, when was the last time I downloaded my OPML file” kind of panic.
