Hi — I’ll give you a news update soon, but if I could ask everyone a HUGE favor — please please please would you REMOVE the header script from your template. It looks something like this line — note, it might single or double quotes, and type “type” and “scr” parts might be reversed, the important thing is that it say “header.js” in it:

<script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://www.blenza.com/linkies/header.js”></script>

Just take it right out of there. It’s causing this terrible system load and I’ve promised our hosting service that I’d ask users to remove this, and that’s when they started the server back up. I’m taking steps to make sure the widgets will all work without it.

So, if you’d please please please do that, we’d all be wicked grateful. Thanks! ┬áNote, instructions are available for:

OK, and here’s the update I promised. Our server has been behaving badly of late. I’m sure you’re well aware of that, and that’s not news. I’ve been working on ways to make things run more smoothly, but something came to light today that has been a big part of the problem that I was not aware of. See above — the header script. It causes all kinds of work on the server, even when you page isn’t displaying a widget! So I’ve had to rework a bunch of stuff to make sure the widgets will work without it, and that’s why I’m asking you all to remove that tag from your pages. It will make everything run much faster on the blenza server and also on your own page, too.

Back later, I’ve got a couple hundred help desk tickets I need to point back here. I’m sorry to have to respond with just a quick link, but I want to make sure everybody gets updated as soon as possible.

My apologies for the inconvenience of today’s downtime, and I thank you for your patience and understanding as I work to get this thing working smoothly.
