Where’s Blog@Newsarama?

I knew of two ways to get to Newsarama’s blog: Go to Newsarama’s site and click the “Blog” tab, or visit blog.newsarama.com. Now both are sending me to the Space.com “community”. Going to newsarama.com/blog gives a 403 – You don’t have permission to access message. Has Blog@Newsarama gone defunct? Or did someone just misconfigure something badly?

I mean, I quit reading it after the first crew quit and became Robot 6, so it doesn’t affect me, but I found the disappearance very curious.

Update: The site is back. One of its contributers commented that the temporary absence was due to “server updates”.

    Yup, the RSS feed seems to have gone dead as well. Mind you, with the quality of the Newsarama site generally, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if it was just another piece of dodgy site design.

    Looks like it’s now blog.newsarama.com…granted, it’s still just as awful.

    We’re back now. Server updates.

    So thanks for the constructive criticism, Ray.

    Er, if you quit reading Blog@Newsarama three months ago, why were you trying to visit it exactly, Johanna? Do you just like to look at the pictures, or…?

  5. Johanna Says:

    I was trying to visit it because I was checking out the report that it was missing. Would you rather I’d have posted something without verifying it, just based on secondhand info? :)

    Heh. No, it just struck me as an odd thing to mention: I am now going to report something I consider important enough to blog about but which, by the way, I don’t actually personally care about at all, you know?

  7. Johanna Says:

    Oh, the “I don’t read it” was my way of covering in case there’d been a post on Monday saying “we’re going to be down for half a day Tuesday for maintenance” or something similar.

    […] off right, but I completely forgot that the new crew at Blog@Newsarama was still functioning until Johanna made comment of their momentary disappearance. But I also spend about 1/5th of the time on Newsarama that Idid […]
