# Logging into the Chat site

I have not been able to log into the chat site for a few says now. All the tests that are done by the test thingie end up being ok, but... If I log out of all SE sites, then back into the math.SE site (using my Google ID) and then click onthe 'chat' link on top, I am taken to a page listing chat rooms but in which I am yet not logged in.

• If at this point I click on the 'Mathematics' room, I am taken there, still not logged in and the resulting page enters in an infinite loop, with the page reloading once and again.

• If instead I click on the 'log in' link at the top, I am taken to a page which tells me it is «Logging [me] in to the Stack Exchange chat…» but which after a few http requests just sits there. If I go to the «GlobalAuth test & help page», no problem is found. If I try to «log in via Stack Exchange Stack Exchange» then I am told that my Google OpenID is new to SE...

Ideas?
