Hello,

I get a blank page saying
"Not Found
Error 404"
on docs.google.com/
What about you?

Me too, in Hungary. No matter what I try, can't reach the Google Docs page...

OK, it's here now. Strange.

Meanwhile I reached it but couldn't go on working as the data base connection did not work and no saving was possible.

I just got this error:

"The server encountered an error. Please try again later."

though it's very unlikely that Google would actually lose your data.

Still it highlights the fact that you can't trust others with keeping your important documents. Here it was just a draft for a blog post of mine, but nonetheless...

There were several reports of Google losing people's gmail data in the past...

Well, I have been using gDocs all day at school, no problems here...

I had the same error messages a couple of days before.
It turned out that the errors came only up when I was connected over my FON Wlan. When I connected my computer direct to the ADSL router the problem disappeared.

Seems to be a number of problems:

I am getting "Oops an error occured. Please try again in a few seconds." in Reader.

And "Unable to load user data. Please try again in a little while." in Notebook.

I saw 404 too.

Documents at Google Apps were working in read only mode at the same time: "We have problems. You can view the document, but cannot make changes too it." Something like that

Looks like App customers are getting special treatment. Or maybe just coincidence :-)

The whole breakage lasted for five minutes or so.

I had troubles with iGoogle as well today.
Clicking on any tab only refreshed the main tab content, it was impossible to activate the other tabs.
Seems to be OK now.

Or bad that they haven't gotten Google Gears integrated yet :)

Not even Google will be perfect; nor should they be expected to be. We, you, everyone, need(s) to be able to have better control of our data: share it, port it, and experience it.  We should not be locked into one mode of interaction, nor a single location for the storage for our data. 
 
And, as the next phase of the post-web 2.0 begins to evolve, more Modular Innovations will occur, that, I believe, can really empower us to control our own data and our own online experiences.

"We should not be locked into one mode of interaction, nor a single location for the storage for our data. "

But if Google wants companies to switch to Google Apps then they will have to provide a near perfect solution that will ultimately be stored in one location (granted Google has backups).

Well, Google Docs works for me. But it takes several minutes to load.

:/

Maybe some regular maintenance like Orkut , AdSense and AdWords gets every month?

(Just guessing..)

Check-out my post on

It's worth the read if you are interesting in Google's strategy.

Thanks, Chad.
