Settings For Google Personalized Homepage Disappear For Many

Philipp Lenssen reports that dozens if not hundreds of Google Personalized Home Page users have lost their personalized settings.

As of now, I currently see my customized and tailored Google home page but literally hundreds of people are commenting at Google Blogoscoped, and Google Groups about this exact issue.

Postscript: This appears to now be resolved. Users began reporting their personalized settings showing up again at about 4:30am (EST) this morning.

    I lost my personalizations and they have not come back yet. This happened about 9 am this morning. Hopefully if others are getting their personalized home pages back then maybe I will as well. (I do hope so, I spent hours and hours customizing it)
