Completely Dependent: Caught like a deer in headlights

First of all, sorry about the sudden drop-off in blog postings this week. Between taxes (everything slows down in the United States in mid-April because all of us procrastinators have to scramble to turn in our income taxes), and actual, billable work (the kind that pays my mortgages), I've just been a busy little bee. Hopefully you'll forgive me.

Today, however, I have an excuse. I manage everything in my world through gmail. It's my email client, my task list, my archive/library, and, via email and chat functions, my primary networking tool.Gmail Down!

For the past half hour, I've been receiving the error displayed on the right.

Of course, there are things on my to-do list that I remember without having my inbox to guide me -- I have a site review to draft, some development work to do, etc. --  but I am nonetheless a fish out of water. I literally haven't been able to get my thoughts organized since getting this error message.

I think I'm just going to quit for the day and plan on working later tonight.

It's amazing how dependent we become on certain technological tools, isn't it?

Gmail definitely is the best mail.. EVER. I don't use it as for much as you do though, mainly because most things I do on the internet really aren't that important.

Hope the error really is temporary!

And thank you for stopping by my little site. :)
