Blogger is irritating me today

So lauren signed up for a blogger blog (which I’m hosting on my site) and she wants to customize it more. Yea — Not possible with the default blogs — They are a cross between CSS4.0 and XHTML12.0 (at least it seems that way), needless to say they are all very heavy on CSS and XHTML. Tried putting in a few 3rd party templates with an odd result — preview or actuall post would redirect me back to blogger.com. I ended up having to sniff the HTTP headers to find out that the profiles reference a bad picture, which blogger automatically gives a 302 (Resource has moved) back for. So instead of the picture just not showing up — the damn thing redirects the entire browser.

So I go to file a support request and I get the following back:

Error

We apologize for the inconvenience, but we are unable to process your request at this time. Our engineers have been notified of this problem and will work to resolve it.

Sigh.
