And I’ve found another one to add to my list of Google Account Service Names...
- Service name: LH2
- Code name: lh2
- NewAccount: Redirects
- EditUserServiceData: User has not signed up for the service.
- Login: OK
- ServiceLogin: OK
When I tried to login to this service, I was redirected to the same URL as the ‘NewAccount’ link above – i.e. http://lh2.google.com/lh/invitationRequired.
So, we can guess that LH2 requires an invitation of sorts. Apart from that, I know nothing else about it. Does anyone have any ideas?

As it turns out, ‘LH2’ was nothing to do with Liquid Hydrogen rockets being sent to the moon! Instead, it was the code name for Picasa Web Albums.
Trying the ServiceLogin link now takes you to the Picasa Web Albums login screen whilst the NewAccount link now redirects to http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/invitationRequired. (The Login link, however, still displays a login for the ‘LH2’ service.)
Ever heard of LightHouse?
Yes indeed. I didn't really make the connection between LightHouse and LH2 until Philipp Lenssen pointed it out over on the Google Blogoscoped forum though.
