Laying down on the job?

Like the macaws, blogger / blogspot is laying down on the job. It appears that IPBiz was inaccessible from about 7pm through about 11pm on Saturday, Oct. 21, 2006.

Separately, Google indexing of IPBiz is woefully incomplete. For example, posts on how an article was plagiarized are no where to be found:

IPBiz is not expecting Google's faulty indexing to improve:

Meanwhile, in the Ohio University plagiarism business, AP reports that two Ohio University doctoral students accused of plagiarizing their master's theses must rewrite their papers [MS theses]. Three cases of 37 have been decided; the remaining cases have yet to be decided, said OU Provost Kathy Krendl.

that appears on the ezine, and you are "unable" to publish
on the ezine the fact of the plagiarism?

You have got to be kidding!
