No Reader interface seems to work today (web, mobile, gadget).

Same for me, seems everyone is affected looking at the Reader Google group. If you have Firebug or similar installed you can see that the API requests Reader makes are getting 500 server errors, causing an exception in the Javascript, stopping the page from loading. So looks like their servers are having issues. Seems to have been no response from Google about this either, and it has been down for me all morning.

Reader's been dead for me for the past 6 hours or so.

Reto, are you talking about *Reader* or *Google*? ;-)

:) Whoops, sorry for the mistype – I mean no problem with *Reader*.

It *is* possible that my web traffic is being routed via New York (gotta love the corporate intranet).

Still no joy for me and I'm in the UK. Guess it must just be a particular cluster of servers.

doesn't work in Switzerland.

So Iit doesn't matter where you at, but on which server your Google Account is stored or needs access too.

That's the same thing with gmail updates: you get them server by server and at least one for reader seems to be down, but not all of them

About 5.46806649 yards. Don't you have meters in your country? :-P

Hmm, aren't you British Tony? Surely its a metre.

Tony Ruscoe [PersonRank 10]

Martin, it should be really. But I tend to dumb down my written language on the web so that more people can understand me... ;-)

Thanks James! You could thank Phillip for it. He was nice enough to spend time to make me that logo. I love it.

Hi all,

We're working on these issues and hope to have Reader back to normal
soon. Sorry for the trouble!

They're sweet, at Reader. It was OK for me all day, and I'm in London too.

That makes no sense unless Google is going to create an OpenSocial app for Google Reader, in which case, why did it affect the live version of Reader.

Avrohom, aren't you from Israel? :|

<<Avrohom, aren't you from Israel? :|>>

No. Actually I've never even been there. I'm dying to go there, but I don't have the time or money. (If I had the money, I'd find the time. So I guess it's just money.) I would've gone on a birthright program for free, but they changed the rules and I became ineligible. If you have any connections on how I could get there, I'd love to visit. The more time that goes on, the homing device inside of me beeps louder and louder.

It's funny you mentioned that today, because just this afternoon I was at the mechanic, and he was shocked that I couldn't speak a fluent Hebrew. He said to me "Well then how did you become Jewish?"

It hit home hard though. Funny when you see things from a different perspective.

David Hetfield [PersonRank 10]

I see. Now i understand why you didn't know what's a meter.
(Cause in Israel we use meters, not yards :P)

So wait, where are you from then?

Google Reader seems to be down again :-/
The same syntax errors as last time.

Martin Porcheron [PersonRank 10]

Reader is working for me – to an extend, the interface took about a minute to load, claimed I had 42 new items and then wouldn't let me read any of them.

TOMHTML [PersonRank 10]

12 years ago #

ok it works now. You're right it is really longer to load. You had 42 items, I had 250+ so it was longer :)
