Hey, I went to see a movie. Looks like I missed about 50 posts about 64 vs. 216. :) Here's what things look like from my perspective. We have our own internal names for data centers, and I know the data center that has the latest changes. When I ping that data center, it has an IP of 64.233.161.x. So I'm reasonably confident that 64 is what people will be seeing by around Monday or so. Personally, I'd take tomorrow off, spend the weekend with your sweetie, and not sweat data center differences right now. When someone visits www.google.com, they can hit a different data center based on (for example) DNS rotation, so different people will see different results from different data centers this weekend.
Frankly, I don't even know what data center 216 is. I'll drop an email to someone to ask about it and see who I can catch tomorra. Is good, yah?

For the people who are a little newer to WebmasterWorld: I do work at Google. I try to stop by, answer questions, and dispel misconceptions. Normally I can give pretty good answers or at least find the right person to ask. But I just speak for myself personally. I'm not some spokesperson or anything like that, but I try to do the best I can to help out with questions.

Has anyone seen Lost in Tranlation? Not too shabby of a movie. Pretty good music, I thought..
