I received a flurry of e-mails regarding the "lock-down" of the Blog last night and this morning. From 4:30pm PST last night till this morning, the Blog has been mostly down and inaccesible because this Blog is located on a series of bad File Servers at Blogger.
It was rather frustrating for me as well because there was information that I wanted to look up, but I was unable to access my own site.
For now, the Blog is up, buy may go down again.
Various error messages such as "unauthorized access", "access forbidden", "you do not have permission to access this site", and "404 http errors" were reported.
Here are the blogger status messages:

The filer that we have been having trouble with in the last few days failed again. Those blogs that are stored on the bad filer are temporarily not available for publishing and viewing. We are working on replacing the filer and restoring access to the blogs affected.
Update (7 am, March 17): we are still in the process migrating data off of the bad filer. We sincerely apologize for the continuing problems.

Currently photo uploading is not working for FTP users. We are aware of the problem and should have a fix within a few hours. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Update (4:10pm) : This has been fixed. Thank you for your patience.

Unfortunately, we have to do some maintenance on one of our filers today from 9 am to 9:40 am PST. Some blogs will be inaccessible while this is going on. Everyone is able to publish, however, regardless of whether or not the blog is down for maintenance.
We apologize to those blog owners who are affected by this.
