“Shit Happens” & so does human error…

Google’s official explanation here:

Unfortunately (and here’s the human error), the URL of ‘/’ was mistakenly checked in as a value to the file and ‘/’ expands to all URLs.”

Most people could only see this message for 40 minutes max apparently!

So, to those out there on their high horses – step off. Sure, this effected millions of people – from retailers to the consumers, but hey, human error DOES HAPPEN. Afterall, we ARE all human, right?
