gmail down

Tuesday, February 24, 2009
gmail is down this morning ( I noticed the problem about 4:30am CST ). Twitter is going crazy with "End of the World As We Know It" tweets coming at about 100 per minute. Here's a link to a twitter search ( gmail );

What amazes me, is that this is a twitter event as large as the terrorist attack in Mumbai several months ago. How dependent are we on gmail, or email in general? I'm glad that I have twitter and other means to communicate.

Updates to follow....

6:13am CST, USA

gmail up and running again. While gmail was down, I clicked on 'all mail' and found a test post that I had sent from yahoo mail. Apparently the mail was being delivered, it just wasn't being displayed in the 'inbox'. Actually, nothing on the front page worked...

All's well that ends well, and twitter got a boost tonight.
