Around 2:50pm this afternoon, reports started surfacing from Twitter users unable to access Google Drive/Docs. The outage appears relegated to the desktop client, meaning the documents are still accessible via mobile.
Direct links to documents, which can be found via most mobile interfaces, will allow you to load your documents. A friendly Friday reminder of just how dependent we are on the cloud.
Google has not yet returned a request for comment.
Google's status dashboard has not been update to reflect the outage:
Update: The Google Drive server error appears to be fixed and Docs are back up and running as of about 3:15pm.
