Like a Helpless Baby

That’s how I feel when GMail is down. It’s been HOURS. When it’s up and working fine. I LOVE it. It’s a web application I find a complete joy to use every day. When it’s down I HATE it. Years and years and years of email inaccessible, but worse, my inbox is basically my to-do list, and without that I feel helpless.

Yes, there is plenty of other stuff I can and should be doing. Yes, it’s my fault I don’t download all this email offline so this doesn’t happen.

I’m still pissed.
