Down for everyone or just me?

I spent a good part of yesterday morning freaking out because gmail wasn't working for me. I kept getting an error message, and I literally restarted my computer AND cleaned out my cookies/files a bunch of times, all to satiate my appetite for checking my email. (Btw, when I finally did get through, important/interesting emails: 1.5, spam: 12. So...yeah.)

Instead of being ashamed that I'm apparently super addicted to email, I sought out ways of finding out if I was the only one not being able to get through. Here is where this handy site comes in.

But you can take comfort in the fact that sometimes, it's not you, it's them.
