Blogger Authentication Problem

Google's authentication system seem's to be screwed up.I'm not able to login to blogger *at all*. Worse thing is even if I do manage to signin, I'm signing in as a different user.Once I signed in as "Nithya Pillai" and the other time as "m_a_n_a_s".Damn!

At first I thought this was a problem with Firefox's cache,so I cleared the cache and tried again.Still nothing! Then I thought it was because of Infy's proxy servers caching the blogger domain.I was all ready to start cribbing to CCD(The Infy Administration team) when I got an e-mail from Thejesh saying that he had successfully signed into Blogger under my id!

Damn! If I can get this blog entry posted I would be happy.

Update:Turns out the problem was due to Infosys's proxy server whose cache was poisoned.I'm currently using the Chennai proxy server and it's running fine.

hey topa was reading all your posts.
I have never known google to fail in any of its services at any time.

I guess the only every time u have an error page is when they are bouncing their servers for gmail. Have you ever had a problem with any of their other services

Don't worry you are right,Google never failed.The Infosys proxy failed,it picked up a worm and got it's cache poisoned and got it's session id's in a mix and this led to some confusion with wrong requests from the proxy.
People were even able to browse other employees Yahoo mail. :)
