Google movin' like a snail

Postby Artie » Sat Sep 08, 2007 5:49 pm

I don't know if it's just me or not, but Google has been extremely slow all day today since I woke up. And certain subdomains and affiliates of Google are the same way too, such as googlesyndication and other x.google.com domains. Normally I would just think that Google was just doing maintenance, but something tells me it's something else. With a smaller site, I would expect it, but not with Google. A lot of sites, including Slyck, don't fully load for me now because it gets stuck on the Google ads. I know I could easily block the ads within the Hosts file, but the ads never bothered me. And I don't think it would be a DDoS since Google is too smart for such attacks.

Anybody else experiencing Google grinding to a halt, or is it just me? I'm sure it can't be just me.

Slyck has adverts? :lol:

Been as quick today as usual for me.
I'd guess there's a blockage in the pipe somewhere between your computer and Google.



(Nice topic title BTW..... MrFred will likely pop in later to tear you a new one)

google is evil.. google is not your friend. Just like people praise Apple for saturating the market with crap that design groups thought up for them, Apple is NOT your friend.

I bet you're fun to be around at a party. How do girls react when you appoach them with such banter?

Right barrel of laughs, aint ya?

Google has created great innovations that benefit everyone. Apple has brought the market great products. (bar you, it would seem. Freak)

Ok, there. I changed it. Happy? :)

Maybe I'll go through a couple proxies tomorrow and see if it still happens. It could be true that it's just my pipeline as mentioned above, but too tired right now to test it. Frankly, I don't see why it would even be happening in the first place. All other sites work like normal.

The storm network is hitting several dozen sites around the world.

Many parts of the net will be slow until it stops.
