Google App Engine Error: Over Quota

After reading a couple of intro pages I suddenly get this error message at 7:20 am Pacific:

App Engine Error

Over Quota
This Google App Engine application is temporarily over its serving quota. Please try again later.

I have not even created an application yet. Actually I am glad I did not: I would have blamed myself for this. Probably would have panicked, thinking that my application would have caused all sorts of trouble.

I wonder how many applications will be built based on this offering. It is tempting to have all those resources. But being 100% depending on one vendor is a strange feeling. No matter what the legal stuff says, you always are depending on Google. Who else would be able to build a competing infrastructure?
