Has Cthulhu taken over blogger?

I know a few people are suffering problems with Blogger posts not appearing on blogrolls at the correct time. I'm finding it annoying and I don't have many readers, so I can only imagine the pain that some of you are feeling with the delays.

While I wait for Blogger to catch up with itself, I can kick back with the ipad as Modiphius released the Achtung! Cthulhu Investigator's Guide to the backers tonight. It's looking pretty, oh so pretty. Rather than write two separate books, they have separate character creation chapters for Savage Worlds and Call of Cthulhu which will save on duplicating content, but does lead to a little bit of confusion as it's not immediately clear (IMO) that they have done this when you first encounter these chapters. There look to be a few interesting challenges for the Hero Lab work when it comes to character careers, but hey. That's the fun of it, right?

From a brief flick through the pdf, it's got a good overview of the time period, covering important events leading up to and throughout the war. It also seems to cover more mundane things like best selling films and music of the period to add that extra bit of character.

  1. Yes. My posts look as if they are not posted for hours.

  2. I've noticed blogger is a bit cranky. I'm having to refresh my blogroll a couple of times just to see most of the posts in it.

  3. The blog rolls have always been moody. I use the www.blogger.com/home page to view the blogs I follow its all under the reading list button. Far more reliable than the blog roll.

    1. I've been having problems with that recently as well. It only seems to load about 60% of the time. Yesterday it was telling me that one of the blogs I followed had posted 5 minutes earlier, but reading the post showed it was 3 hours old.
