Google down then spread out

A couple weeks ago I could not log into gmail for a few hours on a Tuesday morning.  The service was temporarily unavailable.  Searching the internet for the error message revealed an oddity: some folks that had multiple gmail accounts were able to use one but not another.

I never heard what happened.  The best guess I read was that it involved a server switch to implement Google's new type of networking.
