I’ve been trying to access my Feedburner feeds for about 12 hours with no luck. Could it be? No, please Buddha, no! Don’t tell me the Great Firewall of China has finally figured out we could still read blocked blogs via their feeds.

Ok, perhaps I’m over-reacting, and perhaps it’s just a localized outage or something. However, I try to access the Lost Laowai feed, and nadda. Then I try again with Tor on, and voila!

The site, www.feedburner.com, seems fine. I can sign into my account no problem and all that, but when I try to access any of the feeds at the sub-domain http://feeds.feedburner.com, it’s a no-go.

Please report if you’ve similar problems.

Added: Just moments after posting this, I saw Rick’s post at The Little Red Blog stating that it was just an overnight blockage. Perhaps the release hasn’t filtered down to my ISP here in Suzhou yet (please mamma pleaseeeeee let me play with the other kids).

Update 12:21 am, August 31st, 2007: Still down – Abandoning all hope. Sigh.

  2. Gemme, I have to admit, I’m going to be spending the next couple days considering other options. And as the redesign of Lost Laowai I’m about to roll out depends heavily on RSS – I hope others do as well.

    But damnit… that little feed counter is cool!
