Blogspot Down?

I hope this isn’t just me: I’ve been unable to access any Blogspot-based weblog (i.e. whose URL ends in “blogspot.com”) for at least this entire weekend (22/23 November), and maybe even before.  But I haven’t seen anything on the Net about any such problem.  Anybody know what is going on?

Then again, I hope that it <I>is</I> just me: that would be a scandalous denial of service to the many thousands (at least) of bloggers out there who count on Blogspot to present their work on the Net 24/7 – including (for what it’s worth) Howard Dean’s campaign weblog and other related ones.  (Including also “ScottyMac’s” weblog, down over there to the left on my blogroll; go ahead, give the link a try yourself.)  The company that runs Blogspot (Blogger, or alternatively Pyra) you’ll recall was the blogging hoster bought by Google towards the beginning of this year.

[Update: Monday morning, Central European Time, 24 November, and everything is accessible on the Net and back to normal again.  Still, it was anything <I>but</I> that over the weekend – if I’m correct, and not just some lone, raving lunatic about this – and that reflects poorly on Pyra/Blogger.”>
