Blogger is bloggered, as usual :-(
Whenever I try to view my blog from Firefox, all I get is the Blogger dashboard. If, on the other hand, I view it from Konquerer (where I do not have a cookie logged in), I see my blog.
I'm not sure what the problem is here. If I view a mirror of the blog published to my own web site, I see my blog. If I view another blog that I have posting priviliges to, I see the blog. So it's not a content problem with the template. It's something on their web server reacting to the user cookie. I'm just irritated that I have to fire up a different browser to see my very own blog.
I could, of course, relocate my blog to my own domain. But I do not have the bandwidth at my current ISP and thus would need to host a server with a hosting company. And frankly I lack the interest in managing my own server, I design Linux distributions for a living and don't wish to do so as a hobby too.
Anyhow, if things seem to be going oddly here, now you know why: I been Bloggered!

John at AmericaBlog posted about the situation with FireFox. Said they had been alerted and were working on a solution.

I am having the same problem with Firefox too. I contacted blogger about it as well. Sheesh.

OK. I can read it in firefox or konqueror, but I can't get to the comment form in either. IE 6 running on wine is successful in getting to the comment page. This is ridiculous.

Thanks for posting on this - because I thought maybe it was just me. HOW IRRITATING!

TBogg apparently had the same problem. He said clearing the cache seemed to do the trick.
Tools> Options> Cache> Clear.

I went to make a comment on this last night, and Blogger claimed to be down for a half hour of maintennance... which it claimed to be doing for the next 2 hours.
You get what you pay for, sadly.
