Re: Who likes living in a CLOUD?

With my luck these days I'm surprised it hasn't had me! I just logged into mine and all was well.. mind you I don't use gm as my main account which is with another large american based provider.. also error prone.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Yes, for the 0.02%  of Gmail users affected Gmail Blogspot reports that all will be restored sooner than later.
As for Plusnet email, I would not trust it to store important messages. Also it seems that the fuller the mailbox is, the slower Squirrelmail becomes.
BTW I do hope that the engineer did not lose his job - mistakes are part of the human condition and he/she will never make the mistake again.
