Gmail is down. Don't panic.

We're seeing reports of sporadic Gmail outages, and in some cases they're spreading to other Google services.

Before you do anything else, sit down, take a deep breath and realize that the Apocalypse is not upon us. The world won't end just because you can't read the latest missive from that Nigerian prince who's been courting you since time immemorial. Maybe it's a sign from the universe that we should add another layer or two and take a walk.

Later, folks.

If you're that freaked out about it, check these resources (but please don't tweet me, as I'll be out with the dog):
Update: 4:57 - Aaaand we're back. Google says they've resolved the issue and service is returning to normal.

I panicked so much I didn't even notice!


On the other hand...these are some serious overnight lows (relative to this locale, of course) for a lot of days in a row. I don't see any of the Muscovy Ducks anymore.

Sometimes the calm of no emails is to be enjoyed.
