I was locked out too. But I’m also savvy enough to check if the POP3 access is down. It wasn’t.
So I could send and receive Gmail by blowing off the cobwebs and booting Apple Mail. Gmail via. my BlackBerry also worked fine.
Anyway, even if you haven’t set-up Gmail in a mail-app, it’s not the end of the world, is it? So you haven’t got email. Boo-fucking-hoo.
Go out. See a movie. Call your grandma. Clean the twatting toilet. Do something other than sitting at your computer whining about the Great Gmail Fail of 2009.
Cloud computing not the perfect solution? Well fuck-me sidways.
Get a grip.
PS. Your loo is filthy, dweeb.
