    What's up with Google?

    Seems like it has been very, very slow all day, both from my work computer and home computer, to the point where I've switched to another search engine as it wouldn't even show results or load a page. Anyone else having that issue?

    I just tried it and it took fractions of a second to load the page. Must just be you.

    Worked for me, too. I suspect PEBKAC.

    Strange that it did that on two separate computers. Maybe my thoughts are so far advanced at this point that Google has no answers for me?

    No big deal. Just thought the irony was amusing.

    Normally I'd say that having this occur with multiple machines could strengthen the PEBKAC diagnosis, but I'd say your explanation sounds better.

    Sadly, I had to google (or rather BING) pebkac, so now I am belatedly offended. Good work out of you, sir.

    They're all working for me now. Was searching from the search at the top of my browser. Possibly the problem?
