Google :-(

For past few days (days!!!) I’m not able to log into my account at Google (except GMail, thanks for that! – Voice/Blogger/Plus/Docs/… are all broken though). I’m either getting this message:

Sorry, there seems to be a problem. The service you're looking for is temporarily unavailable. We're working hard to restore your access as soon as possible. Please try again in a few hours. Thanks for your patience.
Sorry, there seems to be a problem.

Or I’m sent to infinite redirect loop. None of their self-help pages are useful or have this error mentioned.

Apparently if you get such message, you should read this message in opposite way:

“Sorry (or you should be sorry), there seems to be a problem. This service is looking for you and you seem to be temporarily unavailable. We’re not working on this at all, it may show up on some report at the end of the year though as lost revenue, sad, we see you spent few hundred dollars on our services, so you trust us, but of course we have enough money from everyone else. You may try again in few minutes, few hours or few days, it won’t help you though. Though we appreciate your patience, you should start researching and debugging this yourself instead, thank you.”

I cleared all Google cookies on my browser and it started working. Apparently this has happened to others too.

Update: again…

  1. I’ve heard of similar things happening to G+ users whom administrators suspected to be in violation of their terms of service…

  2. Get your Facebook friends to implement a XMPP gateway with voice/video support compatible with iChat and Google. Then the next thing missing would be Docs wich Microsoft can probably help with :-)

    Et voila. You wil be free from Google!
