GMail outage

It almost makes me believe in magical thinking. Not long after I plugged Google to someone, GMail dies on me. It's been unavailable for 15 hours as I write this. If you're also experiencing this, you could try this section in GMail Help Discussion, or you could report the problem to Google.

The error message is:
Temporary Error (502)
We’re sorry, but your Gmail account is currently experiencing errors. You won’t be able to log in while these errors last, but don’t worry, your account data and messages are safe. Our engineers are working to resolve this issue.

Please try logging in to your account again in a few minutes.

Fifteen hours is certainly not temporary!

Well, my account is finally accessible. It came back some time during the night, which means it was down a minumum of 30 hours.

I'm gonna call this The Great Christmas Outage of 2007.
