What the hell is going on with Google today?!

At first I thought it was just me having some WTF moments. I thought it could be my network… or my laptop… or a million other things… SURELY the great Google can’t be DOWN!!! Can it?
Apparently it seems that it can… at least from my perspective. As of about 8:30 EST this morning, I’ve been unable to reach www.google.com consistently and conducting any Google searches from the search toolbar has been spotty at best. Shoot, I can’t even do a Google search to see what the problem with Google might be! 😉 This is now the 2ndtime that I have personally experienced outages with Google’s services. The 1st time was when the Google IMAP Server Cloud went down in April. I don’t mean to criticize, but when your product is depended on by millions around the world, it MUST be dependable! That means ZERO outage… EVER!!!
LIVE TO THE RESCUE!!! Luckily, Microsoft’s Live (www.live.com) search is still fully functional! Don’t you just LOVE having choices? Google down… no problem, just use Live!
As Raiders own put it (if he were in my shoes right now)… just Live baby! 😉
