I think my favorite was the guy who blamed the Googlebot for deleting his website and emailed the help center asking Google to please return his html coded pages to him since we scraped them before deleting them

So the way that happened was because of a mistake he make on every one of his pages

He was running a small scale focused kind of wikipedia clone and every page was an editable form users could modify

But the "delete the page" button (yes there was such a button) was a GET instead of a POST

Since the Googlebot follows all the GET links on a page...

Anyway it turns out the Googlebot did actually delete his pages, but he was a co-conspirator. So we returned his content with the advice that he fix that.

So we may have murphed the surprise in the proposal, but hopefully not the marriage execution. 

Man Blames Google For Ruining His Marriage Proposal

A man named Alex Denny posted a complaint to Google in the Google Web Search Help forums stating that Google has ruined his marriage proposal.He said that he let his girlfriend use his laptop several

So my name is not on the SigComm 2015 paper being presented in London Aug 17 - 21, but they did use one of my saturn architecture diagrams

To be fair, it's hard to list 150+ engineers on the byline...

I joined Google in 2007, so the Firehose 1.0 and CR native topologies were before my time, but Firehose 1.1, Watchtower, Pluto, Saturn, and Jupiter were a chunk of the projects I worked on for 8 years in Google Platforms.

Or if you prefer a video presentation of basically the same material:

I count 17 folks who came to my farewell to Platforms get together at MTV-50 (Sports Page)

Also Nozar and Horace came by later and Hitha cut out before this picture

So ~20 Devs, QA, PMs, and Hardware engineers came by to wish me well in the future

Hassan said I should write a book

"Platforms according to rhay"

Which I could only publish internally but would be an interesting read
