Life Without Google

july 26, 2004

So, I just tried to Google some information and was hit with a 503 error. Ah, life without Google is pretty difficult. Looks like a new variant of the MyDoom is causing quite a stir on the Internet since it goes out and uses different search engines to look up email addresses. Well, I guess I'll go see if Yahoo! is working, I have been trying to use them a bit more lately, this will give me a good excuse. Has Google gotten so big that virus and worm writers are targetting it? Not really, since it looks like the variant of MyDoom also uses other search engines. But, in any case, this may make people explore other search engines while Google is trying to sort through their problems.
