Google Broken (again?)
09:23 BST This doesn't feel right at all. http://www.google.com/ is resolving, but impossible--or just very, very slow, but I haven't succeeded yet--to get to. Anyone having any better luck? No one I know in the UK can get to them yet.
09:27 BST Ah. There are other search engines. This list of Google links. http://news.google.com seems to be working, as do URLs like http://www.google.com/press/. Matt says he can do a GET request fine from the commandline...
09:32 BST Some people say that the localised Googles are working: http://www.google.co.uk/, http://www.google.ca/, http://www.google.com.au/, but I can't get them to work.
09:50 BST Yay! http://www.google.com/

Always bloody complaining! Google's fine, it's just you, now go away and feel paranoid.

Don't make me have to go and send you lots of empty packages through Parcelforce...

I couldn't get to Google.com last night at all (and survey said I was the only one then for whom this was a problem). I ended up using Google.ca.

I used to have a news script on my website that did an HTTP GET of news.google.com - but it's been banned now.

They probably want you to use the web APIs now...
