Gmail Down?

Is it just me or is anyone else having issues logging into Gmail? It was driving me nuts in the morning because I thought my Gmail Manager plugin was broken. But it turns out that gmail server is simply slower than slow. It’s very odd because the rest of Google is working just fine.

Gcal and writely are lightning fast, but Gmail page just keeps on loading forever. Very odd. It’s almost as if it was DDOS’ed or something. But I always figured that to DDOS a server belonging to the almighty Google you would have to have a botnet of the size of a small nation and plenty of luck.

Anyone has a clue what is going on?

It came back to life! I just noticed that my Gmail extension in Firefox turned from red exclamation mark to a blue envelope with a big 20 on it (crap, I have 20 unread messages).
