google reader/friend connect isn't working

To those of you who managed to find me today, YAY!

Google Reader/Friend Connect is not working. Mine says I'm not following anyone. Ack! Where are my blogger pallies? I hope they resolve this soon. Here is what it says on the Blogger Help Known Issues Page:
Friend Connect is experiencing degraded performance this morning which is affecting many Blogger blogs. This results in several known issues:
  • Your Blogger dashboard will report you are not following any blogs.
  • Recently created blogs will see an error in their Followers gadget which indicates "Community not found".
  • Managing followers from your Blogger dashboard is currently not working.
  • Adding social gadgets to your site will generate an error when the gadget attempts to display a preview, and you will not be able to complete adding the gadget.
  • Following a site by entering the URL into your Blogger dashboard will not work.
The Friend Connect team is aware of the issues and is working on fixes. Your followed blogs will return to your dashboard when Friend Connect operation resumes. We apologize for the disruption.
You can also go to that page to report an outtage.

you popped up in my google reader, so that's good... I'm following you through blogger/google and it "knows". I've had many issues with google/blogger/feedburner recently.. Here's the page I would go to where you can just click "report" every day to make yourself feel better.. and they do eventually fix these things - it just can be quite the roller coaster! Good luck!

I am not having the problem, but some of the blogs I follow also mentioned this. Hope all is ok.

Ugh. I didn't even notice to be honest. I hope they fix it.

I'm also having problems with EC--I can't see any of the ads I bought so I just keep buying with no clue on what is running on what day. I asked for help over a week ago, haven't heard a thing.

My problem with Friend Connect is different. When installed, some people using Internet Explorer can't get on my site (including me!), so I had to remove it.

I wish they'd get it fixed!
