    I know that online trading sites were crashing the other day, but this is not about them… I want my Spotify, dammit!

    Google Down: YouTube, Spotify, Hulu and Search Engine Crash Across US, and Social Media Sounds Off – PopCulture

     

    <snip>

    Social media users are reporting that Google is down. Beginning mid-morning Thursday, tracking site DownDetector.com saw a surge in reports related to Google and associated apps and services, including the Google search engine, YouTube, Spotify, and Hulu. The reports mostly seem to be coming from those in the United States.

    The reported issues come as people across the world practice social distancing, many employers now having employees work from home and schools moving to online learning amid the coronavirus pandemic. As a result, some have voiced concerns over whether the influx of people using the internet would cause a strain.

    At this time, it remains unclear what has caused the apparent outage, and none of the companies have yet released statements, though social media is flooding with users expressing their concern.

    Free with limited ads, and I think a nice selection.  Dark Angel earlier; Hell’s Kitchen season 16 now —

    Though I’m not sure whether that was all Google’s fault or whether there was some glitch between the site & ublock origin in my browser.

    Since I also have adblocking at the router level, I disabled ublock origin, but unfortunately the network adblocking doesn’t do YouTube ads. So every time I click on a video there now I get some stupid ad for some Cheeto survey. Which is really lame, considering I’m NOT clicking on right wing content, where such ads would be expected.

    There’s a special place in Hell for people who put ads on the internet. And it ain’t air-conditioned.

    With all of his billions, that service should work flawlessly.

    Most of the time, as in daily, I’m on Discord. It’s working just fine.

    ‘Cause that's what it would be. "Tea and cake or death? Tea and cake or death? Tea and cake or death!" Students with beards, (mimes demonstrating with picket signs) "Tea and cake or death! Tea and cake or death! Little Red Cookbook! Little Red Cookbook!" ‘Cause, "Cake or death?" That's a pretty easy question. Anyone could answer that.
