Just to mention, it looks like the deadline is postponed till Tuesday 11:00 PDT (but this is not confirmed, since SoC 2006 faq/schedule page is not changed correction: the SoC website was updated).

Hmm, I really fail to understand the kind of problems Google has with server load. Major DDOS? But what is the purpose?.. Anyway in my area people do not seem to have troubles browsing the site.

I've noticed something funny about Google. Sometimes, it seems, that the english portion of google is down (logging in, email etc) and other languages (German in particular) work just fine. I had a similar problem before with my girlfriend's account while mine worked perfectly fine.
