I'm having trouble viewing blogs hosted on BlogSpot (including my own). Getting a 502 Server Error – anyone else seeing this?

Looks like Blogger's been completely dead since about 3pm (UK time).

From looking at the Blogger Google Group It's been in bad shape for about the last 12 hours, with lots of user reporting error codes when posting and logging in until the blackout at 3.

Last response from the group's resident Googler was 6hrs ago...

From the Blogger Google Group ([put at-character here]3:19p UK time):

"Hi all. Apologies for not being Jordan and able to post under a more
official account.

Blogger and Blog*Spot are currently down and unavailable. Engineers
are working to bring things back up, and should have everything
working again in the next few minutes.

Sorry for the outage.

At this moment, here in Brazil, the products Blogger and BlogSpot Server are showing the message Server Error... somebody report this message too?

Now on trying to access anything Blogger related you get this:

"Blogger and Blog*Spot are unavailable
Blogger and Blog*Spot are unavailable right now. We apologise for this interruption in service.

Details
Blogger is undergoing brief maintenance and will return in a few minutes."

So far a few minutes has lasted just over an hour...

Not quite. They're reporting 'all is well' but their own Buzz blog (http://buzz.blogger.com/) is returning:

"We're sorry, but we were unable to complete your request.

When reporting this error to Blogger Support or on the Blogger Help Group, please:

Describe what you were doing when you got this error.
Provide the following error code and additional information.

Blogger Buzz
(http://buzz.blogger.com/)
works fine from Finland now.

Hint: Reto, when you put URL's to brackets it's recommended to use space when typing the address ;) an example included ;)
With nnnn.com) these URL's generate 404's.

It's up again, but now it has decided to give me some of my interface elements in German!

Roger, that was happening to me a few days ago and then it looked like they'd fixed it... but it's doing again now.
