Google launches itself..again

Google seems to be back up and running after a few problems with a new version of the MyDoom virus yesterday. Google is one of several search engines used by MyDoom to find valid e-mail addresses on the net. Google recovers after virus hits
Look out for a flood of emails telling us we are spamming the world!

I must be one of the 'other internet users' as I never had any problems at all with Google.

We've done Technorati and Google - what free service will we whinge about next? :)

Thankfully, we seem to be leaving Blogger alone at the minute don't we?

YEah fingers crossed with Blogger!

As for Hotmail - they fscked up last week by telling new users they would get 2Gb of email storage. I nearly did a MSN launch GMail story but after checking it out a bit further it it seemed there was a bug that meant if you signed up with the version of MSN Explorer you got with XP it gave you the extra storage. MS spotted this and sent an email to all users saying it was an error and all they'd be getting was 250MB. Cheapskates.

It felt bad enough when i used to use MSN groups for my pictures. :)

HotMail just sounds a little too gay to me.
