YouTube is temporarily unavailable (updated)
YouTube temporarily stopped working, displaying an “error 500″ and noting that “a team of highly trained monkeys has been dispatched to deal with the situation.”
Some direct links to videos seem to be working without problems, however, go directly to YouTube.com impracticable. The Problem seems to extend worldwide.
This is a bad time for Google, which recently leaked its financial results for the third quarter by accident .
Update: YouTube seems to be back unharmed, after about 10 minutes of absence. We thank the team of monkeys here.
Update 2: Google noted that “some users encountered errors, or experience slower than normal on YouTube today. Our engineers worked quickly to address the problem and fixed it in minutes. We regret any inconvenience caused to our users. “Tags: error, Fall, Problem, YouTube
