Gmail, Gdocs and Gdrive are Down

Proving that even the mightiest clouds around can leave you "hanging", don't panic when you find you are unable to check your email on Gmail, or access your files and documents on Google Drive and Google Docs.

The only thing you can do is to take a deep breath, do something else (hopefully something productive) and check Google's stauts page to see when things get back to working order. Try to face this as being yet another drill that will prepare us for the inevitable "collapse" that will surely happen someday, when someone finds out a major vulnerability that might compromise and entire system like Google, Faceboor, or others of its kind.

Truth be told, I do depend on Google's service to "work" online (Gmail, Google Docs, Blogger, and so on)... But the prospect of all those coming tumbling down is just so horrific that I don't even want to consider what I should should that day happen anytime soon. As they say: we should hope for the best but prepare for the worst. But in such a scenario... I don't think there are really ways to prepare for such eventuality.

... Maybe... turning off all electronic devices and read a good (paper) book?
