The End of the World?

February 24th, 2009 · 4 Comments · News

Coffee and Gmail, breakfast of Champions.

Gmail is Down.

Gfail – heh.

“LOL, where were you during the #Gfail of 2009?”

Dang it, do have to Twitter now too? Someone might owe me lunch for snagging the best user name.

6:54 AM – Hey, it’s kinda fun to be part of the worldwide disaster of epic proportions!

7:45 AM – Seeing reports that things are coming back up in the USA, but not yet here in NNY.

8:00 AM – Happy to report that I’m logged in. FF extensions still buggy, but that’s OK. Weird, I had to fill in a CAPTCHA after logging in, but before the Inbox. Never had that before.

Many of our users had difficulty accessing Gmail today. The problem is now resolved and users have had access restored. We know how important Gmail is to our users, so we take issues like this very seriously, and we apologize for the inconvenience. Gmail Help

    I quit Chrome after trying it for a bit. Can’t bother with learning another browser right now.

    Your suggestion about Chrome and Gmail is scary.

    I doubt they would make their apps only work in Chrome – until/unless they have a clear market-share. Then we might be screwed.

    On the other hand, if you’re running a Windows-less computer with a Google Operating system, you might not care or notice.

    Oh, this comment should have been over there, but CAPTCHA doesn’t load for me 🙂

    It’s making me hungry!
