    Gmail & Adsense down over here

    This is the error message I received from Gmail:

    Server Error

    Gmail is temporarily unavailable. Cross your fingers and try again in a few minutes. We're sorry for the inconvenience.

    I've seen that error before. I don't think it's cool to be cute like that when people can't access their emails.

    It's like when you get kicked in the stones and someone points and laughs at you.

    Gmail is working fine for me... just tried now.

    Oh yeah... like you don't laugh when it happens to someone else... :D

    It's like somebody stubbing their toe, or smacking their head on something, or falling down the stairs... you can't HELP laughing... and then you say, "Sorry... I'm not laughing AT you... I'm laughing WITH you... no wait... never mind.. are you hurt? can I get you a bandaid? or another banana peel?"

    Yeah, but you get pissed when you're the guy rolling around on the ground not able to breath because your nads feel like they're crushed.

    It's funny...just not when you're the guy with the bashed in balls. Or in this case, the guy who can't access his email.

    Or if you're writhing on the floor with crushed nads and can't make it to your keyboard to see if Gmail is back up yet? :eek:

    They were down for a few hours. I forward all of my email to my gmail account. They are down once in a while but overall their quality makes it a small price to pay. :)

    Working fine for me too... how are you trying to access it? POP or webmail?

    That said, I think it's risky to use any free webmail service as your primary business email address. It also gives the impression of a fly-by-night or amateur operation, IMO.

    Also, are you aware that you can now access your gmail account with a regular POP3 client like Outlook or Outlook Express?

    For non business emails I really like the gmail interface ;)

    And I'm out and about alot so a good webmail interface is important.

    I access it through http://gmail.google.com/gmail/
