D'oh! Google deletes its own Blog.

Yes, that is correct.  In the biggest bonehead move so far of 2006, and with literly hundreds of scientists, engineers & security experts on the payroll, Google thought someone hacked their own 'Official Google Blog'.  But after closer scrutiny, they realized that some dumbass at the Googleplex itself, in fact DELETED the Googleblog by mistake.   Some student from Texas who tried to access the site and found a 404 error decided to try to register the old name himself, and to his surprise it worked!  So for a short time, it was in fact owned by someone else.  I'm sure they will publicaly laugh it off as a funny mistake, but how funny would it be if that was your adsense account?

    I've got a bigger bone-head move for you: those of use who have migrated to "beta-blog" CANNOT comment on blogs that have not.

    Can you dig it? The only people in the entire world who cannot comment openly are the people with beta-blogs ... how stunned is that?!
