Outage update - resolution

Update: 12/28, 9:30 PM The upgrades and changes to the server installation proved more daunting than originally planned.

There was one last issue, related to the display of high-ASCII characters (ex. Asian or Cyrillic characters, accented characters, curly quotes) that should now be resolved.

You may need to empty your browser’s cache and restart your browser if you still see any scrambled characters on your blog pages.

It seems that there is a bug in the Apache 2 web server software that we had to compensate for by adding a line to the httpd configuration file (detailed explanation).

I apologize that the high-ASCII character problem persisted for an entire week. If you should come across any other problems related to your weblog, please bring them to our attention by e-mailing blogs@princeton.edu.
