I missed it but I'm reading everywhere that it was down today, now up again. Anyone know how long they were down for? A half hour? Seems adsense is having a lot of issues displaying as well.
Also a post over at wmw is saying they saw a hacked whois for goog.
MOUNTAIN VIEW -- Googling stopped for 15 minutes on Saturday. The world's leading internet search engine shut down from 6:45 to 7 p.m. eastern time, according to Google spokesman David Krane.
"It was not a hacking or a security issue," said Krane. He said the problem was related to the DNS, or Domain Name System, though Krane did not elaborate. The DNS translates domain names for computers.
"Google's global properties were unavailable for a short period of time," Krane said. "We've remedied the problem and access to Google has been restored worldwide."
