Gmail Outage: Share Your Memories

Were you there when they crucified our Lord?
For an hour or two today, Gmail was down. The entire world basically screeched to a halt. The economy crashed. A monkey in a coat wandered around an Ikea, in Toronto. And in offices everywhere, people were forced to talk to each other. Why did we ever think it was a good idea to trust our entire life to an Internet text-ad company that thought "Google+" was a good idea?

What did you do during the Great Mayan Apocalypse of December 10, 2012? Was it "fun," or did you keep trying to reload Gmail every thirty seconds, like a drug-addicted laboratory animal? Share your story of what it was like, a half hour ago, when the Earth stood still.

I made an AOL joke and then a Google Plus joke. Those were the only ones I could think of.

I don't remember, I completely blacked out. Woke up naked in a pile of AOL CDs

I had a panic blackout and woke up reading the Wikipedia page for Cats (the musical).

You were all laughing at me for using Hotmail. WHO'S LAUGHING NOW?!

I don't really see them making a comeback from a disaster like this.

Mine didn't go out, so I assume that the outage was New York centric.

My girlfriend sent me an e-mail about it from her work address:

Subject: gmail went down

Body: Did you lose it too? If so, you will not get this email.
