Google Drive outage made my presentation go the wrong way

Update: Drive is back up but too late.

Had embarrassing and frustrating moments when I had to screen a presentation off my Google Drive account and I saw the ridiculous error message with picture of a broken monkey with a wrench
"502, Thats an error The server encountered a temporary error and could not complete your request.. Please try again in 30 seconds, Thats all we know"

And their Apps Dashboard showing the following message, which scared my audience away from idea of using Google stuff for our business.

And a lot of people blowing off their steams at the wrong place,  Google Drive Forum

Lets see how this drama ends, but I am sure missing the deadline because of this outage. I wish I had downloaded updated copies of all my docs from the drive every night as a backup to my local drive.

Please be mindful of these imminent issues when choosing such kind of services for your business.
