NOTICE: my GMail account is down

Just FYI, Google has mysteriously locked my personal GMail account, around 8pm last night (Friday) for no apparent reason. I’ve already sent in the “please reactivate” form, as well as asked a few Googlers to investigate.

No, I have no reason to believe there’s a password compromise, and no, I wasn’t doing anything naughty with that account, so one presumes it’s an odd bug with Google’s security procedures.

Drat – I wish I could see the IP login list for my account. I’m pretty stable at where I login from, so any theoretical hack attempts would be pretty obvious if they didn’t disguise IP. But I really have no idea why I’d be a hack target.
