How is Gmail being down affecting your life, your workplace, your school?

Vent or be philosophical here.

its affecting both my gwmail account and my regular gmail account -- i wonder how large this outage is

Sarah said...

It's affecting everyone I know, and there is massive panic. Weeping, wailing, gnashing of teeth, dogs and cats living together!

Seriously, though, I think it was fairly widespread, and most people I talked to were irritated. (Here's the weird part -- even while Gmail was down, I could still gchat with people!)

I hit refresh over and over and over and over thinking it would only be a thirty second thing. Pitiful!

Not to detract from the online community's panic attack, but I didn't realize gmail was down til I saw this thread :).

Now if this happens again 6 months from now... then we'll have problems.

ehh...I'm okay with it being down. Not much to look at right now and it keeps me from checking it too much expecting that something important will be in there...like for instance, when do we find out our GPS people? Anyway, I don't like Gmail or Cmail...so the switch just made me mad that I had to go through my past emails on the other account.

FUCK GWMAIL
FUCK GWMAIL
FUCK GWMAIL

It was a fucking bad decision to start it, it's gonna be bad throughout.

Now, service outages.
Next, e-mails will be missing.
Then, security leaks.
Finally, GWmail will kill the firstborn males of every family in DC. Nice one ISS. Good fuckin job
