Whew! My Google Personalized Home Page is back

Google fixes glitch in Personalized Home Page.

I got worried when I read early on Friday in this IDG News Service article about a glitch with some peoples' Google Personalized Home Pages.

Sure enough, when I went to the site, all my hard work creating a customized portal of news, blogs, quotes of the day, weather for San Francisco, alarm clock and Stephen Colbert video clips was gone and replaced by the old sparse, white page I used to have before last month.

I e-mailed Google to see what happened and was informed that a "relatively small group of users" were experiencing problems with their personalized home page. Lucky me!

Fortunately, the problem was resolved within a few hours, and I could get to the critical information I needed, like the Associated Press Odd News item about a bull ramming an 81-year-old woman's car in her garage in New York state.
