G-Mail Outage

Over the Halloween weekend, and even continuing into early this week, G MAIL users’ have been unable to access their web mail.  This incident is no where near as bad as the September 1st outage, but users’ have every right to complain.  Google’s support forums were blasted over the weekend with hundreds of upset users.

Apparently users were experiencing a 502 error when attempting to log in from the web interface.  To make matters even worse, even the customers who pay for 24/7 phone support could not get through to anyone, despite paying $50 per year.  Google stated that about 0.001% of G Mail users world-wide are effected, and they should have this issue resolved late Monday afternoon.
