What if Google crashed

GMail and Google are being slow at the moment, and it made me think: imagine if Google went down for a whole day? I mean, it’s unlikely, what with them having four million redundant data centres or whatever their disaster recovery provisions are, but how much would it knock their status as darling of the internet if you spent a whole day trying to get there and couldn’t? The Yahoo people would do well out of it, that’s for sure. That’s why they’ve got four million data centres, mind; they’re well aware of this. Of course, it’s probably being slow at the moment because of my net connection. :)

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
