Not sure I'd agree with that one. If there was an actual networking issue 
and you couldn't reach Google, I'd buy that it is at least in the right 
ballpark of on-topic for nanog (though if past history is any guide, it 
would just be 20 "me too" posts with no useful information about WHY it 
was broken or how to go about fixing it). But if you can get the website 
to load, and Google's servers just don't want to run that particular 
application, I can't see how it possibly has any bearing to NANOG.

Layers people. :)
