Hello GoogleGuy,
I have a somewhat related problem although I think it may just be on my end. I can't reach anything within the adsense directory with IE. I can with Opera. My wife, who is bewhind the same firewall can with IE. We are both on the same ISP. I have tried entering http:// as well as [....] I have run adaware and such. I haven't had any problems with any other Googles.
By the way, I don't know about the new Opera but the adsense page has limted functionality with 6.01.

Good find Chndru
Google enables users worldwide to immediately search an index of more than four billion Web documents to find the information they need.

Looks like they need to hire someone just to keep their homepage updated. (hint, hint, wink, wink)

I just wanted to say thanks to the person who sent us a traceroute. It got forwarded to a few engineers who will dig on it.

"a few engineers who will dig on it"

Conjures up some funny images in my head - maybe I need more sleep.

Good luck to them - it happened again yesterday and again I went elsewhere - but afterwards spent more time cleaning my computer... Nothing.

Another reason to use Opera - when 'the goog' is down, use another from their 'search toolbar'...

I agree. I use the Opera browser almost exclusively now. I don't know which server they query but I noticed back when Google did the monthly dance that searches from the Opera search bar delivered the updated results days before they showed up in IE results. I love the tabbed browser windows too. Everything in one app. Besides,Opera 7.x has a paste and go that lets me paste a url or login just by pasting the info in from the clipboard or the login button. It's stil a little buggy with rendering but cool otherwise. No, I don't work for Opera. It's just faster and more friendly than any other browser. I've used it since 3.0 and still love it.
