No, not world news.
I'm referring to me and my blogs.
Google closed the place down and denied
me access to everything unless I agreed to
give them my phone number.
They said they detected unusual activity and
wanted me to prove my identity.
I waded through pages and pages of options
and forums and... stuff. Red tape loops.
They finally emailed a code that was supposed
to clear things up but, surprise, it didn't work.
I finally googled them and found a 'contact us' link
on their home page and sent an email saying I saw
no reason for them to have my phone number and that
the code they sent did not work so, please just release
Very early this morning I received a no-reply email
with an apology telling me everything should be fine now.
Seems to be so.
Thank you to those who checked in with me via other
channels to express concern.
It was nice to know I was missed.
