    The programmers at Site Meter must not realize that there are no weekends off when you provide a service to thousands, tens of thousands or more people around the world. Someone will have a lump in their throat once they know they have caused an issue effecting all of their java based users.

    i guess blogsdna was unaffected by this i haven’t seen any traffic drop (which might be coz my readers are mostly firefox one :P) and i am using old sitemeter script this might be due to newer sitemeter code.. need to check it.
