gmail problems on 05-15-08?

last night from about 8-10pm EST i was unable to access my gmail. i did some reading and found that google reported a problem around 4p PST but they stated it only lasted 30 minutes (this from CNet).

i tried from multiple computers and was getting my mail through my iPhone via IMAP and the gmail web version – but desktop web was NOT happy!

this issue gave me another reason to pause. i was trying to send out some paperwork to a client and was trying to think of another way i could do it! gmail has become such a part of my life i was stuck!

i could have done something else, but at the time, nothing made sense. it made me realize how much information i have tied into google and online. loosing an laptop is ALMOST as bad as loosing internet access these days – what to do?
