Gmail offline

Has anyone suffered from the disrupted gmail last night? I did. For more info:

It's impressive how reliant we are on Gmail for news and information, at least I am! What about you?

Yes. I panicked -- felt I was floating into the dark outer space / universe :)

VIRTUAL PANIC!

it's SCARY how dependent we've become on technology. one of these days, i'll pack up my bags and move into the mountains.
where there will be no electricity - only thuraya.

I hardly use email, in comparison with other people...yet I felt it! It was like the world came to an end. The reliance on it for the simplest things (like retrieving forgotten passwords) made me realize I need to enable IMAP and start reading my email via a desktop client. Heaven help if that fails for a few hours!

I heard about this on the news. Fortunately for me by the time it had gone down, i was done and dusted with my gmailing for the day :O) muhahaha!

But it is amazing how just a few hours of no gmail can send us into panic, sadness, fear, anxiety! Madness really.
