Account Maintenance

Gmail has been giving me the following error page since Friday morning. On one hand it's frustrating that I can't check my e-mail. On the other, it's kinda nice having a couple of days off.

Gmail Error

My parents are in town and we've been cleaning gutters and raking leaves all day. It's a beautiful 69°F to make it all the more enjoyable.

Update: It's been almost 4 days and still no resolution. My account is still out of order and most e-mails to me are likely bouncing. My advice: don't depend on Gmail for your main mail account. Luckily I haven't, so [email protected] should still work - [email protected] seems to be gone indefinitely.

Update 2: I finally got access again on Tuesday afternoon - 4.5 days later. With 268 unread messages in my inbox, I think I'd like it turned off again. ;-)

Do you pop or imap gmail? Use google apps for your domain to host email? I do pop for my domains through google - which is just an extension of gmail - and haven't had a problem. Likewise, my generic gmail account is parsed to my page and its been available all weekend. Maybe you're being singled out for buying that escalade. They're pretty green over there!-)

I use the regular Gmail web interface, and I started using IMAP last week. The good news is I have [email protected] hosted through Google Apps, so I was able to to turn off forwarding and I'm now getting some mail. However, my [email protected] account is still under maintenance - 4 days later.

Indeed it is annoying when you depend on an free service and expect too much out of it. Much like It's only been a month since I last could log-in. Guess it's time to move to WordPress.

Worm 2 - your problem could be that you're logging issues against the Roller project, which doesn't have much to do with how JavaLobby uses it. JRoller is JavaLobby's free service that happens to use Roller. If they won't answer your support requests, there's not much the Roller Team can do to help that.

That's what I figured. JavaLobby doesn't seem to respond to any email requests...etcetera. There too busy putting things into production with out testing them first. meh. But the point is you can't really count on "free" services...Even if they are well coded and well intentioned.
