  • What was that issue 4084, back in June 2014? Back in June 2014 (this month, when writing this post) Google improved their Drive web hosting service, with some unintended side effects, that we suffered for about two days.We learnt an important lesson: even a giant like Google can create some "unintended side effects", but when you are ridding his wave, you can trust in a prompt solution, we are not alone.I have copied below all the notes and updates we publish at that time, just for any future reference.Temporary Issue Note (as June 12, 2014) updated Jun.16 | Jun.17 | Jun.18 FIXED !!- There is a new and hopefully temporary problem on Google side, while loading a web page and resources (javascript, css, etc) hosted on ...
