We appreciate the note, but did have alerting in place to let us know there was an issue. If you visit the APIs console (https://code.google.com/apis/console
) and select a project with cloud storage enabled you should see an indicator on the right hand side of the overview page that indicates cloud storage status.
We are also working on a more official channel and process to communicate with Cloud Storage about any outage incidents that may occur in the future. Keep an eye on the gs-announce discussion list for updates on that.
