if you’ve noticed blogger being down, the reason would be, it’s been hacked. i got an email for someone googling for ‘blogger security’, who reports:
when I placed the request to have the password sent, I received a message telling me the password would be mailed to someone else:
*sigh* that is so mean. i mean really. blogger? i could see hacking, say, well, something less nice. but blogger? again?

important update, from Lisa: They say the database was compromised so anyone using blogger needs to change their ftp password to their webserver – again.
that would be urgent — until FTP passwords are changed, theoretically the hacker could be all up in your server, doing hacky things. bad news. (only applies if you use blogger and publish to your own webspace, not blogspot)
