Can't connect to even the front page... Does this signal a big update or just screwed up right now?

Been down for awhile on the U.S. East Coast. Also, cannot connect to Google Talk or GMail. It looks like the Google might be human after all.

I am in Boston and finally got through to a customer service representative. Of course she tried to 'minimize' the size of the outage saying that they've heard some people are having issues. They also won't tell you how long this issue has been ongoing. Why don't companies ever admit the true depth of problems?

Adwords and Adsense are both down. We are in South Carolina, been down for hours, now 6:43pm EST.

I bet when they come back up, they are going to have the debit card in placed. The two are tied together with the debit card. It is overdue for launch.

Not only that their stock is slipping on the AOL account loss announcement, and YPN sent out a new wave of invitaions today, to those of us who put ourselves on the list back in the summer. Looks like Yahoo is going to kick em when they are down. Some Google hunkering down is going to be seen, no doubt.

We were one contacted today by YPN. We have YPN on one site already, and so far are very impressed. It is early though to pass judgement. But, initial earnings are beyond expectations.

I just got an email from Google apologizing and saying that the outage was related to Y2K.

While the problem does not seem to be ongoing, I have a small tip if there is a future problem. When adwords.google.com is down, I have always been able to log into either adwords.google.co.uk or adwords.google.it

It wasn't actually that adwords.google.com was down (or any of the other services that were affected), it was the login script that was timing out.

I suspect the problem was related to the recent integration of Google Accounts into all the services.

Thank you so much for pointing this out, whoisgregg. I'll admit it makes me grit my teeth a tiny bit to see reports that "AdWords is down", when it is actually running as normal apart from a login issue.

This is not to undervalue in any way the pain that you all feel when there are login issues - and for that pain and frustration you have my apology.

I am also sorry that I wasn't around to report on progress in getting things resolved. I haven't been able to read or post on WebmasterWorld for the better part of two days, and this may continue for a while. Technical issues (and no, not related in any way with the login problem!) are beind my absence.
