I just realised how second nature the Google toolbar is - even though I know Google's down I keep typing queries whenever a thought pops in my head.

it's the end of the world. almost four hours and still the same.... ;)

forget the mydoom stuff, actually i have proof this is a conspiracy on part of yahoo, msn and such to bring down the share price tag so they can sweep it off and get their hands on G. What? oh wait, the funny guy with the tentacles just told me i'm not supposed to tell this things he reads of people's minds..... :D

I can confirm that Google is still crawling sites in the US.

Everything seems to be working properly from the Netherlands: Opera, toolbar and IE. Checked with some friends too, same results.

I'm only loosing AdSense ads directly after a revisit of the Mediabot. Could be the same problem or another one though.

I had yet to see the error, but the error was reproduced for me by searching for an email address.

Seems like for the first time ever that "Google actually is broken".

Google.com not working here in the Canary Islands.
Yahoo! seems to be okay from here though.

AdSense appears to be working fine, albeit slow. The JS takes a few seconds to load, and the last request in my logs was at 1:20pm:

[ip] - - [26/Jul/2004:13:21:53 -0400] "GET [url] HTTP/1.1" 200 5245 "-" "Mediapartners-Google/2.1"

System failures could harm our business.

Our systems are vulnerable to damage or interruption from earthquakes, terrorist attacks, floods, fires, power loss, telecommunications failures, computer viruses, computer denial of service attacks or other attempts to harm our system, and similar events.[...]


[sec.gov...]

Looks like there are people out there that want to prove it.

We have experienced system failures in the past and may in the future. For example, in November 2003 we failed to provide web search results for approximately 20% of our traffic for a period of about 30 minutes. Any unscheduled interruption in our service puts a burden on our entire organization and would result in an immediate loss of revenue. If we experience frequent or persistent system failures on our web sites, our reputation and brand could be permanently harmed. The steps we have taken to increase the reliability and redundancy of our systems are expensive, reduce our operating margin and may not be successful in reducing the frequency or duration of unscheduled downtime.

[sec.gov...]

Seems to be not enough.

Odd. I've been in and out of google.com over the last three hours and never encountered any problem from Nevada. Yahoo has been its normal sluggish self.

Wonder how much money that article, linked from the CNN homepage will cost Google for their IPO. If even major, non-tech news sites report it.

This makes one realize how much commerce flows through Google. Think of all the businesses that are hurting today over this. How long before the Justice Department starts looking at anti-trust? Not long after the IPO is my guess for no other reason than Google controls such a huge amount of commerce. They may not find it, but the feds just don't like one company with this much control.

Wait a minute... if Google posted a profit of $79.1 million last quarter, that's $878,888.89 per day or $36,620.37 per hour. Based on that they've lost about $109,861.11 from the past three hours.

How's that for statistics! :)

It does not mean you have a virus. What they are saying is that there is a virus on some peoples comupters that is causing problems with G's servers not your computer. If a light poll gets knocked down by lightning it does not mean that the lights are off at your house because lightning hit your house.

Interesting that it's reported on BBC News Sci/Tech

[news.bbc.co.uk...]

but not on Google News Sci/Tech

[news.google.com...]

Some kind of block on Google stories or just waiting for Google to catch up?
