Blogger is giving me fits today...

Several of the blogs I read hosted at Blogger are having trouble verifying my LiveJournal Open ID credentials as I post comments today.

On some of them, four tries before I was allowed to leave a comment.

I'm persistent. Comments were left.

But I was thinking of moving my everything else blog over to Blogger, and I wouldn't want other folks getting frustrated when they try to use Open ID to leave a comment, and just give up.

Anyone else going through multiple attempts for Open ID verification? If so, details please...

Maybe it's just a Blogger/LJ thing.

I've had a problem with Blogger and OpenID; I'd just forgotten about it, because it's been a while since I got a Blogger account and started using that instead. What it's done with me is, when I fill in all the required fields and try to post the comment, refresh and leave the log-in fields empty as though I hadn't filled them in yet. No error message, just --- poof, data gone. Comment still there, but open ID and word verification data vanished.

I was using an LJ openID, so who knows, maybe blogger and LJ don't get along?

(And ironically, my browser lost contact with the LJ server the first time I tried to leave this comment.)

Yeah, I've noticed several "mini outages" on LJ today.

Has Mercury gone retrograde???

No, but two major internet provides (Comcast and Verizon) have been having fits today, so bets the server farms are having problems somehow.
