Google Goes Dark?

At approx. 5pm today (US East Coast Time) all adwords ads dissapeared from Google. At least for me. Anybody else seeing this?

Im seeing it too, here in SoCal.... no adWords at all!

Using IE6 not firefox (so no scripts to remove ads)

OK, so it's not just me. If it's global I calculate it's costing Google $12,000 per minute in lost ad revenue! It's been down about 30 minutes so far.

Look like it's coming back now, after 30 minutes of downtime. Wow!
