Oh my god guys what in the world just happened so I’ve been playing catch-up on the Twitterverse about what was going on and there’s nothing clear and defined yet but YouTube has just been down for just over an hour at least and man that really kind of messed up my night not for uploading purposes and all but I’m.
Driving tonight doing a little travel for work had a two and a half hour drive ahead of myself and right now I’m about 20-25 minutes out and usually what I’ll do.
Is turn on live streams or you know create a playlist to videos that I want to catch up and sit there and listen to it but I for the majority of this trip and so while.
I’ve been here I’ve been dictating to my phone a little bit and doing a little research and normally something like this happens it’s pretty easy to figure out you know why things went down either Google or YouTube because you know Google now owns YouTube will go ahead and state that they’re having DNS issues or there is some sort of pipeline outage or something but.
Man there’s just nothing really going on it.
That tells us what happened you got a few hacking groups out.
There laying claim saying that they’re responsible for the outage but with a couple of them going at it they were either one working together or two they’re not.
Responsible for it and of course then it’s only a matter of time before we find out what happened but man I can’t remember the last time YouTube went down for any amount of.
Time and I think it’s fair to say like you know you think about as.
Big as Google is and as big as Yahoo is and as much revenue as they.
Make off of advertising and all their other services that if something can take them down for an hour they probably need to look at what the hell just happened and try to get it resolved in the few so that it doesn’t happen again in the future right I mean holy Carol they try to bring up my chat here I’m not gonna get too hung up in a.
Trying to read but just in case yeah so I’ll definitely be looking into this a little bit because it’s definitely interesting again it anytime something can take a service something with a back much infrastructure with as much redundancy in with as many fail-safes as YouTube and bring them offline right so if any of you guys well no kidding yeah I know it’s back up that’s why I’m just kind of throwing this out.
There while it was offline I was doing a little bit of research kind of hitting the Twitterverse and just kind of poking around to see if anybody could say definitively this is why it’s been down and I can’t find anything which is abnormal in and of itself you know but man it really messed up my Drive because usually when I’m driving for a trip which is what’s happening you.
Know I’ll listen to some live streams or load a playlist full of content that I want to catch up on and go to town and right.
Now I’ve been without my youtube for like an hour well a little more than an hour and I didn’t get to play catch-up on any of my normal stuff so if any of you guys have any insight whatsoever into what happened I would be more than happy to.
Call you out q did it that’s actually really good that’s probably the best suggestion that I’ve heard so far for why YouTube went down my only question is are we still in the same space-time continuum makes you wonder he just sent me a message Eric well it’s gonna take me a.
Minute to figure out what that message says but I’ll get to it did you see any reason take exit 298 for I 176 toward Pennsylvania.
Turn Morgantown yeah you got to forgive me I’m still on the road just taking the opportunity to kind.
Of touch base with you guys the whole reason I started this live stream was to see if I caught the attention of anybody that has been able to find any reason anything that really seems factual as to why Facebook Facebook oh my god as to why YouTube was down to be able to bring a service like YouTube down for over an hour internationally this was a global event I mean something big happened this is not normal I’ve.
Remember of course it’s been a while YouTube’s having outages but usually they’re localized meaning around.
A certain region or a certain area not this this was a global event whatever happened it was big fair to say that YouTube’s gonna have to up their game figure out what happened to make it so that that can’t happen again you know a lot of people depend on them for stuff what’s.
Going on Matt in half a mile take exit 298 for I 176 toward Pennsylvania 10 Morgantown yeah Eric I did that too because 4 doesn’t matter whether you are on iPhone or on Android but if you’re having application problems one of the things that you can do is to go into your app.
Data or your story which makes it to.
And all the data files for that program because sometimes when the updates come out on the app they break things because they expect data in a slightly different format sometimes it’s because there’s been a change on the server and while you.
Have those files sitting on your computer people laugh to stay on I 176 no they don’t um they don’t work with whatever updates the server has had published and so one way or another there’s an incompatibility anyway.
If you go into your app settings you can clear that as files a lot of times that fixes things but that was a no-go that was not working this John.
I 176 north for 11 miles oh thank god.
Right let’s see nipples yes definitely nipples fault no kidding server issues I can’t imagine you.
Know part of me wonders though Matt I mean it could be server issues but it also could have been an infrastructure issue the the interesting thing is that YouTube being the type of business they are because you guys.
Know YouTube is owned by Google now they don’t exist in one place they have farms full of servers all over the world and all of those farms kind of work together as live fail-safes as redundancy if one entire server or even one entire data center or even.
Those servers are able to keep things up and running for everybody due to replication whatever happened took everything out globally so this was not just a one datacenter problem this was not something that was.
Localized to a single server this was something big well I won’t say I depend on it but boy it sure is good for me filling the time you know being able to listen to live streams while I’m driving or being able to download a playlist of content and play it on my phone on the plane just to catch up.
On things solar flare if that’s.
The case I would think it would affect more than YouTube but yeah so it definitely.
Impacted my evening cuz I haven’t caught up on any of the stuff that was going on and then as soon as it did come back online I thought I want to start a live stream and tell everybody that it was offline as if they wouldn’t know duh right but to see what kind of information I could um dig up ya.
Leper quad I know I had to focus on the road a little bit more even this is a little less pervasive than having to.
Read all the time I know it’ll be really interesting to see what comes of that gonna be doing the between tonight when I go to bed and the next couple days to see what’s released because they’re obviously going to be a gun this was not something small this was not something they can just play down.
And ignore because any type of media is what just happened I would be.
Surprised if MSNBC or CNN or some news network didn’t already have a story up and going that YouTube was down for over an hour around the world right so I’ll be pulling up.
To the hotel in the next like 15.
Minutes and then I’ll be looking into that so anyway how’s everybody’s night going.
These guys that you know anybody who follows me knows that I travel for work and usually when I say that it implies going to the airport and a lot of driving and everything else this.
Week I’m working local which means that it’s are within driveability holy crap it’s.
Freaking snowing in PA Wow alright anyway nothing it’s hard to see but it’s doing it anyway yeah I’m working local which means somewhere drivable right somewhere inside a like 300 350 miles and so I had to head from Dover Delaware just south of Dover up to Reading PA.
For just a couple days tomorrow in the following day and then I’ll drive home and so it’s been kind of nice being home it’s also my birthday week so on the 18th.
In two days I turn 39 it’ll be the last year that I can’t claim that I’m old cuz.
You know everybody knows after you turn 50 you’re holy crap I count good after you turn 40 year old right thanks Ben so I’ll be able to share some cake with the wife and kids and it’s good you know it’s kind of nice to be home once in a while.
Young buck listen to this guy oh okay I got you yep.
You’re old oh I’m sorry leper quad today that that name is rolling right off the tongue leopard leopard quad usually I can’t say that was sounded like I’ve got dick in my mouth.
Oh God did he just say that holy balls YouTube so yeah it’s been cool catching up with some of you cats finally got a video up on the FPV noob tube from when I went down to see Ben and those guys down in Fort Worth so if any.
Of you guys aren’t keen to that make sure you head over to the FPV new tube youtube channel and check that out it was a good time not a lot of storytelling you’re talking kind.
Of the visuals tell the story that there is text in the description and but the long and short of it is when I got there you know I’ve been on a plane all morning been driving a little bit.
Tired but you know that passes but I’m around all these people that I.
Seen in a while or some new people and to top it off I’m in a new spot that I don’t know the flow I don’t know the holes I don’t know and I was just nervous right I can’t.
Do sometimes I don’t get nervous and other times I do and I was really nervous so it took me a little while to kind of shake off the icky sticks and so that video and you can just see everything was real herky-jerky real twitchy it wasn’t fluent but you can see that it got a little bit better.
And then for the last part of the video after the song changed so yes it’s a long video not 15 minutes long but.
7 minutes long man I just found my flow part of it was kind of changing a spot where we had less people coming around part of it was just giving him for the nerves to go away it was just that’s when.
It really came together for me.
Thoroughly enjoyed myself and let me tell you guys if you haven’t if you’re anywhere in the Fort Worth area or you’re ever passing through do not hesitate to look up Ben leper quad or.
Cody seals who’s Top Gun fpv or Regan Jobe outcasts fpv look up any of those guys and let them know you’re in town and let them know you want to fly doesn’t matter if you’ve ever if you’ve never met them.
Doesn’t matter if you don’t think that you’re a good enough pilot true Drudge Report says it’s cute that’s awesome well let’s take this pitch to warp 9.9 keep an eye on the engines yeah definitely look those guys up man there’s some really cool spots to fly around Fort Worth and it’s not a huge town it’s easy enough to.
Get around so I had a blast hanging with those guys that video is really just the first day I spent two more days there two more nights flying one night I just spent with been flying in the parking lot of a gaming place the other day I.
Spent flying with just Cody back at that same spot use the left lane.
To take exit 11 be 122 west.
Toward reading shut up my TPS is talking I’m not sure if you can hear it anyway spent the day just flying with Cody and kind.
Of pushing myself jumping through some gaps and things like that I’ll have to do another short.
One just kind of showing some of that it wasn’t real great and flowy but it was there’s a lot of progress for things that I haven’t done before so good stuff alright guys well I’m gonna go ahead and shut this thing down nobody still seems to know what was going on with YouTube so this effort.
Netted a whole lot as far as that goes as I see anything I might just update you guys and.
Remember to just be happy right fly safe and happy crash.
