Summoning the ever mighty Bloglines Plumber: bloglines freedbacking.
Several days ago, I noticed the left pane in Bloglines –my favorite online feed reader– sometimes would fail without displaying any feeds. It would spew an error message:
FATAL: Could not load ‘dojo.profiler'; last tried ‘package.js’
I thought it was only a caching glitch which is very common with my current mediocre Internet connection. Sometimes a reload will fix the problem.
However, since yesterday I can no longer get my feeds no matter how many times I hit the reload button. And Bloglines News has this likely cause of the problem:
You might have noticed a few fancy little changes we’ve made to your feed tree on the left pane today. You’ll like them even more when you learn what’s behind the scenes!
- We no longer update the entire left pane when the unread or “kept as new” counts change. Now the counts update in place with a fading yellow indicator. The result is a faster, more pleasant way to cruise through your feeds, especially for those quick on the hotkeys.
- We’ve decreased the time between automatic updates to your unread counts so you don’t have to press the “r” hotkey quite so often.
Looks like their ‘few fancy little changes’ are now complete, and reloading won’t get me an old version of the left pane.
