[AusNOG] Big Air Outage

>From the Google blog - 

Imagine if you were trying to fly from New York to San Francisco, but
your plane was routed through an airport in Asia. And a bunch of other
planes were sent that way too, so your flight was backed up and your
journey took much longer than expected. That's basically what happened
to some of our users today for about an hour, starting at 7:48 am
Pacific time. 

An error in one of our systems caused us to direct some of our web
traffic through Asia, which created a traffic jam. As a result, about
14% of our users experienced slow services or even interruptions. We've
been working hard to make our services ultrafast and "always on," so
it's especially embarrassing when a glitch like this one happens. We're
very sorry that it happened, and you can be sure that we'll be working
even harder to make sure that a similar problem won't happen again. All
planes are back on schedule now.

I was just told they have their layer 3 services up, but the layer 2
stuff is still work in progress.
