Sorry for throwing this entry up here, but I have been dealing with an ongoing problem, and I am trying to connect with others who have also been dealing with this same problem in the hope of getting to the root cause. I have been having problems with temporary outages to all Google services (search, GMail, Blogspot, etc.) via my DSL connection from Qwest. I am still able to access other sites when this problem occurs, it is only Google services that are affected.
So far the outages have occurred on the following days:
- Tuesday, May 12, 2009 from Noon to 1:00 PM PST
- Thursday, May 14, 2009 from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM PST
- Note: My location is in Seattle, WA. and because I am expecting more outages I will update this list as they occur.
If you live in the Seattle area and are a Qwest customer, and you have been having trouble accessing Google, please leave a comment or send me an email. I have been trying to find out what has been going on, but Qwest hasn't been very helpful. One manager even went so far as to tell me to call Google at 650-253-0000 which was useless, since Google doesn't offer tech support. By the way, if you work for either Qwest or Google, and you know what is going on feel free to leave an anonymous comment.
Thanks ~ Jim
