Travelling the backway to Google

Yes, they do appear to be somewhat backlevel, but that address (among a
few others) is what (among a few others) resolves to right
now - even when doing a manual lookup starting at the gtld servers.

Right now they're coming out with a short 10 minute ttl, but my local
nameservers still have cached (to those "old" servers) with
more than 24 hours left on the ttl. I don't think Google has fully left
emergency mode yet. And even if they have, the recovery measures they
took will not age out for hours.
