About the SQLblog Roller Outage

Over the past few days you might have noticed that the SQLblog external feeds roller had mysteriously vanished.  We had some technical difficulties on Tuesday, things appeared to have fixed themselves by Wednesday morning, and then the problems returned Wednesday evening.  So I decided to disable the feature.  Honestly, I didn't think anyone would even notice, but I received some e-mails from some concerned parties; apparently there are people out there who actually use the roller.

The bad news is that we have no idea why this issue cropped up, but the good news is that I've been watching it now for three days and it seems fine. I've just turned it back on, and as part of the process of cleaning up the mess I even added a few new blogs to the list. As always, I'm looking for more great blogs to add, so if you have any ideas leave a comment here.  Enjoy, and please let me know if you see any further issues.

Thanks for posting this Adam - I hadn't actually ever clicked on the Roller before now (guess that comes from reading the all blog feed in the feed reader). Nice to find some new bloggers to add to my own blog roll/feed reader. Thanks for all you guys do over here...
