pwned.




And by the way, I think Google Web accelerator sounds like a crappy idea. It takes little pieces of your everyday webbrowsing and share it with the community, so that pages may load faster. Spot the problem yet? It means it also shares information from pages that are accuired to log in to...

I'm fairly sure they'd only take the files in your cache, not your cookies, so that all of your private information would still be safe and sound.

On topic, I think they just had a DNS problem. At least, I hope so. Because Google's like the one relative constant in the internet. If it gets hacked, it'll turn the world wide web into talking fishes, green suns, and California-cheese moons.

According the big cheese, it was just a DNS error.

Right >.>

And I think that herminator spoke for everyone when he said pwned ;)

All the more reason not to put all your eggs in one basket (putting your faith in one website, program or company to run everything). ;P

I think it was. What caused the error is a different matter though...
