    I can't get to www.google.com.  Maybe it died.  My connection seems okay.

    Can't wait to see their stock take a dive.  [6]

    These outages make me feel better when I crash something.  The big guys screw up too.

    EDIT: After a few minutes it's back again.  Too bad they lost out on millions of advertisement clicks in those few minutes.

    I have been having connection issues with it over the past hour. The search appears to be back up however other services such as Gmail and Blogger are still down. When I did a traceroute (from Australia) I noticed that the packets went from Australia -> Los Angeles(Level3) -> Chicago(Level3) Why would Google traffic be heading off to Chicago when their servers are in California? Perhaps there was some sort of failure and Google has switched to a backup datacentre, which would explain why search is up even though Gmail is still down.

    Yeah...everyone was googleing for Windows Live Messenger, Windows Live Mail, Windows Live Favorites, Windows Live Security, Windows Live Office, Windows Live etc...

    I guess Google can't handle it...

    BTW: Live Messenger has already been hacked and patched so it's not only for internals or specific beta people *sigh*

    What's up with all these people who freak out and post messages to a forum somewhere every time a particular website goes down for a few minutes???

    Jeez.  Take a break and go do something else for a while.

    If Google is down for more than a week, then you've got something to talk about.

    Maybe they were working on their Library Project:

    Internet behemoth Google, plans to launch their Library project in November. It plans to scan the entire contents of the Stanford, Harvard and University of Michigan libraries and make what it calls "snippets" of the works available online, for free.
