Google Code’s jQuery hosting goes Down!

Friday, June 18th, 2010 | Business | 3 Comments

Web developers everywhere must be making double takes.  It’s not our code, it’s Google!

The 2nd time I’ve noticed this in the past 2 weeks, it makes it hard to consider Google Code a reliable host.  Not only do developer’s who did as Google recommended get calls from clients, some of our development time was wasted today trying to track this down (for me it was only a few minutes, but I’m sure other developers will spend hours).

From Google Code:

The AJAX Libraries API provides your applications with stable, reliable, high speed, globally available access to all of the most popular, open source JavaScript libraries. Your application can use our very flexible loader google.load() or direct, path based access to the scripts.

I like the “stable, reliable” part myself.

You can see the last time I complained about this problem.

We can only hope this is for some greater good, and not protecting against more evil.

Annoying.  Especially when I’m busy trying to get code done!

UPDATE: If you need to call jQuery code, use this:

<script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.4.2.min.js”></script>
