Yes, a much better "feel" to traffic today...if that sounds odd, it is. I'm still under the impression that many of the issues reported are not related to Google at all, but instead constantly changing pattens evolving in the very fabric and connectivity of the billions of end points that make up the internet as a whole. It doesn't sound very scientific, but sometimes to understand something, you have to observe it from a completely different point of view. If I tell you my traffic is better today, will you believe me because I told you so or because you are experiencing the same and I just verified your observation? While that might be true, a mere two observation points or even a dozen or a hundred or a thousand can in no way predict the operational behavior of a machine with billions of points and all the permutations thereof. Enjoy the problems we are not seeing today, because they are guaranteed to swirl around like so much weather and be back tomorrow, or the next day. Just remember, our planet was designed, bought and paid for by mice, and the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything is 42. Now wasn't that fun?
