Google down?!?

Tuesday, February 6th, 2007

WTF…first time I experienced this;

Google appears to be down, at least, most of their web-based services!!

I first noticed it with Gmail, Google Reader and Google Calendar (the apps I usually have open continuously), started loosing connection around 16:20h GMT.

First I thought it was related to my own internet-feed, but guess what? Other sites are loading perfectly, and I found also to be down hard! (isn't it funny how you start searching the source for a problem at your own end before finding out it is actually located on the other end?!)…wow, it perfectly shows me how much I start to rely (and depend!) on the always available online services, oof!

New email address active

I enabled Google Apps for Your Domain earlier for my domain and configured email. Last weekend I finally found the time to integrate this into my regular gmail-account and am now ready to start using it!

A milestone, right? So, the first one to email me on raymond (at) raymondpoort (dot) com will be rewarded, I decide what & how! 🙂
