Is it just me or is half the internet seem to be down? I can’t get to extremetech.com or parts of zdnet.com, and I just got a 500 error from blogger.com when trying to leave a comment on someone’s blog. What’s interesting was the message: “Please contact the server administrator, email@example.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.” Trakken.com redirects to Neotonic, which according to its meta tag, ” Neotonic Trakken is a powerful web-based Online Customer Support system.” The domain is registered by David Jeske who has an email at Chat.net, a PHP-Nuke site that hasn’t been updated in two years. David worked at eGroups and Yahoo and then started Neotonic which signed Google as its first customer in 2001. If you dig a little deeper you can see what Trakken really is. The obvious conclusion to be drawn from all this is that Blogger is just a highly customized PHP-Nuke installation and should be released under the GPL. Someone contact the FSF.
