Hi everyone,

Sorry for the confusion. When you sign out of your Google Account, we want to make sure we sign you out of all your Google services. We are now checking to make sure you get signed out of YouTube.

Your domain admin can whitelist, which will stop you from seeing the error while allowing your network to continue blocking videos.

A news off topic to this blog. Soon after Nehra hitting the winning shot, Earthquake of 7.4 magnitudes on Richter scale shatters Northern India around 2.00 am Jan 19, 2011. The epicenter of the earthquake was 65 kilometer North West of the Kharan, Balochistan. Balochistan is in the South Western part of Pakistan. Back in India, those who were awake and/or were watching India-South Africa one day match,including me left their buildings and run for a safer ground. Rajasthan's Jaisalmer had the most of the share of the quake as it share its border with South West Pakistan. People started Twitting and Google is showing their recent tweets regarding the quake in its realtime search results. Hopes so there are no loss to lives either in India or Pakistan.
