It's when Google goes down like this you realise how complacent we as site owners have become.
The Google going down wasn't too bad, but I have various 3rd party scripts, including a Buzz button, and this was causing my pages not to load.
Looking at my site I have twitter, facebook, buzz, digg buttons, statcouner stats and maybe a couple more on some pages.
If any one of these services crashing can cause my pages not to load it makes me consider if it is even worth using these social networking buttons anymore.
