It looks like the week long Orkut outage for Opera Mini users is over. jbpseudo just left a comment saying it was working again. I just tried and got right into Orkut. This should make a lot of folks happy, especially in Brazil and India where most of Orkut's traffic comes from. As jbpseudo said; thank you, Google, Opera Mini and especially ManneS, the Opera Mini forum moderator and user advocate who I suspect played a big role in escalating this issue to Google's Orkut team.
