The end of the world is nigh! That's right, YouTube went down with a 500 internal server error this morning for about five minutes. If you browsed to the site anywhere in the world, the site just responded with garbled text.
The outage lasted about five minutes, but was quickly fixed by the YouTube team. We can't remember the last time the site went down for a significant amount of time. So, where were you during the great apocalypse of 18-10-2012? We were right here, hitting F5.
