I noticed it since normally every new page I put on line is in Google
within 24 hours. So pages not appearing for days made me wonder :-D.
Unless Google has changed the blog thingy I am convinced it can be
reproduced. I doubt it was just a glitch.

Ah, well, even established news sources now and then publish a canard. I
mean, canard, there is even a word for it :-D (

Agreed. Another reason why I renamed my blog to MexIT is that most blogs
I have seen are just 8 lines of text and a link to an article someone
else has written.
I try to make my "blog" a bit more than that (hence why I am again
almost one week behind). The best reward is other sites linking to old
"blog" entries (or being blogged yourself :-) ).
The main blog page has now a PR of 6, and the site itself (index.html) a
PR of 7 so I don't complain :-D. (OTOH my other site dropped to 6 :-( )
