If Google has problems (as it seems to have today) a zillion of webpages has problems too. Many pages try to load Ads or stats or what not, and – depending on your browser and settings – often you won’t see the page displayed (even if it might be loaded already) if the adserver is not responding.

Emergency treatment 101: turn off JavaScript in your browser (usually under Preferences).

(recursive sidenote: I tried to remove the code for Google Analytics from this blog (it runs on Blogger = Google), which means I need to change my template and republish the blog, but I was not able to change my template, because the site was calling Google Analytics, which was not responding)
