mikel.org still using the blo.gs update service? Since Yahoo! took over I have noticed some strange problems, and I wonder if anyone else has noticed them.

Also, and more importantly, I see a lot of “ghost” updates, by which I mean a site listed that has not really updated. I know that it happens spontaneously, because it lists my site as having been updated when nothing has changed.
Can anyone shed any light on what’s going on?
