Outage downs Gmail

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/bits/20...-downs-gmail/1

An issue over at Google left Gmail unavailable for around two and a half hours yesterday - leaving many e-mail addicts to go cold turkey.

what outage? wow do these people have 1 email account or something.

you have 5-6 and redirect it to 1 for easy management.

and if one starts getting spam you can remove forwarding and stop using it

I was at work at that time, so it didn't effect me, besides, it's not the end of the world if you can't access your emails.

Why bother posting a news article about something that happened yesterday for a very short period of time and only affected the web client of some accounts.

Only in the UK & Germany, B1GBUD - elsewhere is still gmail, and you can still get a "@gmail" address if you sign up by proxy

Not overly concerned about the odd couple of hours. My first thought was "but then, if I was a big company, this might be more critical to me". Then I recalled how long it took Dell support to respond to my emails a little while back and thought "nah, screw 'em".

Arghhh! I just crawled out of my fall-out shelter to discover the world hadn't collapsed after all... Only to realize that my Wi-fi of course doesn't reach through the concrete and steel that the shelter is constructed from blocks all signals.

Or... whatever

Yeah, but most of us signed up to Gmail long before that happened, even then it's easy to circumvent.
