Google Calendar Dropping Events

Many users are experiencing problems with Google calendar today. The worst thing that could happen is that your calendar, the place you keep track of all your important daily events, is randomly wiped clean. This is exactly what many users are experiencing.

According to early reports from Google, less than 0.125% of their user base is affected. This number dropped to 0.001% a few hours later. Still, it must be quite distressing when you’re trying to seize the day it #riseandgrind only to find you schedule is blank.

We’re experiencing an issue affecting less than 0.001% of the Google Calendar user base. The affected users are able to access Google Calendar, but are seeing error messages and/or other unexpected behavior. We will provide an update by February 23, 2011 6:52:00 AM UTC-5 detailing when we expect to resolve the problem. Please note that this resolution time is an estimate and may change.

Affected users may be missing entries in their calendars.

Fortunately for those having the issue, your calendar events haven’t actually been deleted, there is just a problem with how they’re being displayed. This should be easier for Google to recover from if there is actually no data loss.
