Google is forcing me to transferring my Blogs to their servers

I have until May 1st to migrate my Blogs from my server to Google's.  Google has provided a migration tool to help the effort, but I've been unable to get it to work because Google's servers are too busy!@?*&!!


One of the most challenging things about managing a web presence is one's vulnerability to third parties.  Companies go out of business or drop products and services; which leaves businesses in a lurch trying to find alternatives.


I've been hosting my Blogger Blogs on my website for years:  http://aalbc.com/blog and http://aalbc.com/aalbcreviews 


I HAVE to get this done.  My http://aalbc.com/aalbcreviews blog drives an XML feed which services my IPhone Application.  Of course I'm sure Google does not consider all of the down-line dependencies of the services they provide: Broken links, XML feeds, applications, etc, when they eliminate services.


But I can't complain too much, Blogger is "free" and Google more than makes of for it as far as I'm concerned with Adsense.


Wish me luck!
