And I thought Blogger was conspiring against my blog. :P

I can open a few, but most are slow. My food blog opens fine, but the writing one is giving me trouble for nearly 12 hours now. I hope it gets sorted out soon.

I can't open any of the Blogger blogs. More than 12 hours now. Anyone else having problems?

I can access my dashboard fine and even posted an entry just now, but I can't view the blog.

It's about an hour after you posted that and I'm not having any trouble seeing mine or your writing blog (something to do with soccer and provocations?).

Sury, you are in India, right?

According to BoingBoing, the Indian government is requiring ISPs to block blogspot.com (Blogger) and typepad.com blogs.

thanks for that article Peggy. That would really stink as alot of my blogspot (http://everythingindian.blogspot.com/) traffic comes from India - considering it's theme of course.

Thanks a lot, Peggy. I had no idea something like that was the reason I couldn't view my blog. I am kind of shocked.

It seems totally ridiculous to me. I hope that the Indian government reconsiders.

If your ISP has not restricted access to blogspot site, you should see something like this:

If you are running a Mac with OSX, open the Terminal (Applications->Utilities->Terminal) and type in ping blogspot.blogger.com at the prompt. Ctrl-C will cancel.

Explaination and update from SAJA.

From: A.R.Ghanashyam
Subject: Blog Issue in India

July 19, 2006

Reference our discussions and correspondence on the issue of blocking of blogs in India, we had taken up the matter with the authorities concerned in the Department of Telecommunications in the Government of India and the facts are as under:

A two-page write up containing extremely derogatory references to Islam and the holy prophet which had the potential to inflame religious sensitivities in India and create serious law and order problems in the country appeared in a blog facilitated by well known search engines. The matter was immediately taken note of by our CERT (Computer Emergency Response Team) and the Department of Telecommunications (DOT) was informed of it. The DOT took up the matter forthwith with the search engines and instructions were also issued to all Internet providers to block the two impertinent pages. Because of a technological error, the Internet providers went beyond what was expected of them which in turn resulted in the unfortunate blocking of all blogs.

Department of Telecommunications have now clarified the issue and the error is being rectified and it is expected that normalcy in respect of blogs will soon be restored.

For some reason, I don't quite buy this. It seems pretty unlikely that more than one ISP would accidentally block the entire blogspot.com and typepad.com domains when they were supposed to be only blocking two pages. I hope this announcement means that the block has been removed.

I tend to agree with you. The block is still in place, but reports suggest it will be lifted in the next 48 hours.

I hope that is true. I feel handicapped.
