For the last couple of hours I haven't been able to access any spreadsheets on Google Docs & Spreadsheets, or save changes to new ones. Anyone else having this problem?

Still broken here, UK also. Weird, and annoying.

Are you using it for something real? (!)

Edit: By "real" I mean "important".

Sam: yes! That's weird too, I know. But I've been finding it very useful at work – we have a collaborative spreadsheet that everyone can access to log progress on projects.

Was just trying to upload our contacts database too . . . of course, a Google online database application, a version of Access, with programmable forms, would be great . . .

Thanks David: I'll try those. The error message I keep getting, by the way, is just "We're sorry, a server error occurred. Please wait a bit and try again." Writely docs work fine. It gets as far as connecting to a specific server (eg ov7.spreadsheets.google.com) but then just keeps trying to load before finally coming up with the error.
