    I thought I was hallucinating. Google down?

    Egads the world must be coming to an end.

    BTW, I checked .au and .ca and they're down, too.

    I can only see the main Google website, everything else is still down. Give that the main site is highly distributed, it could be that there is a major failure elsewhere.

    Wonder if that Web Accelerator thing has anything to do with it? Don't know how that stuff works, forgive the tech challenged.

    AdSense ads still not showing. news.google.co.uk down still, although google.co.uk and news.google.com up. Indeed, news.google.com is showing a few other reports of problems with Goog,e DNS I think.

    I would say if anyone has the resources to hunt down a hacker and make them suffer, it would be Google. Someone's gonna be in a LOT of trouble!!

    I tell you something we all posted about google being down so fast just shows how much we all use it. Funny no one seems to say they use it though.

    I'd read that elsewhere, but there was only one report of that. Probably someone's PC was infected with spyware.

    Google are claiming 15 mins of downtime, but clearly it was closer to an hour. They say it was a "DNS problem".
