So Gmail went belly up today for a bit. There was a fart in the cloud computer.
Did you reload inbox every 30 seconds? I bet that helped. Did you tweet about it? I did- pulled out a Don McClean:
I can’t remember if I cried
Reading tweets that Gmail fried,
But something tickled me deep inside-
The day the email died.
But instead of wailing, I made use of the time.
I’ve been noticing a few more ants than I prefer to see ambling across my kitchen counter. I did a thorough clean with clorox. then sprayed killer stuff down the crack behind the counter. Then I sealed the gap with new caulk.
Who needs email?
