Yesterday's Google Failure

Official Google Blog: This is your pilot speaking. Now, about that holding pattern...

The problem affected my sites, although not catastrophically. I have code for Google Adsense and for Google Analytics on This caused the browser to never finish loading the page. Because Google was reachable but extremely slow, the situation was actually worse. The browser did not terminate the attempt to connect and just kep loading forever.

Main content on my site loaded properly, but users may have been confused and thought my server was sluggish. Also, pages could not be printed without forcing the browser to stop loading the page.
