Google Hangouts outage brings chatting to a halt

All morning long my chat client has been connecting and reconnecting only to finally flatline. Was it my proxy? My peer blocker? Nope – Google’s just having a shitty Monday morning.

The chat service has been experiencing issues, and the good people in Mountain View have confirmed the “service disruption.” According to the Google Apps Status Dashboard, Google Talk and Sheets (spreadsheets) are having down time of their own. Mine’s not working.

I’m so glad I RELY on this service to stay in contact with family, coworkers (remote offices included) throughout the day.
