Google woes

Nothing book related, just griping.

 

This is day number two of Google and all its subsidiaries randomly going down and coming back for me. I have no clue what's up, since I seem to be the only one I know of having problems. I've contacted my ISP - no problems there. I've done a virus scan, tried different browsers, tried different devices (it affects my desktop computer and my tablet), and nothing helps. Trying to contact Google itself is an exercise in frustration. Every branch of the phone tree either leads to a dead end or instructions to visit a Google help site.

 

The things I miss the most: Google searching, Blogger, and YouTube. I hope this somehow magically fixes itself.
