YouTube Down : Major Outage

For the past three hours or so, YouTube, Google's very popular video portal, has been down. It goes up here and there, but then goes back offline.

The error many people are seeing seems to be database related. Here is what I see:

There are reports of the outage at YouTube Help and Google Blogoscoped Forums. The first report I have seen was at 5am (EST).

I don't believe this is routine maintenance, but I do suspect it will be something Google is franticly fixing as we speak.

Still Down. You'd think Youtube would have got their act together by now.

Youtube's been acting up. Think it's a virus? Started suspecting that when I saw this message: "A team of highly trained monkeys have been dispatched to solve this problem."

Still Down. Apparently been down since early a.m. And quite frequently lately (major outages in March, May, June and now today. So far, this one's pretty bad.
