A mysterious U-M e-mail outage began at 10:30 AM; approximately thirty minutes ago, a resolution time of 8:00 PM was posted to the web mail splash page.

Time for an Arbor Update gmail invite exchange?



  1. GMail is a cult! Your invite can rot in my inbox with the others. :)

  2. fantastically witty headline Brian. In other news, I have 6 gmail invites left, first 6 to ask for one get one.

  3. I saw the 8pm message also – something about corrupted IMAP.

    However, it’s nearly midnight and it’s still not working.

  5. Umm… do we really need “shit” in the headline? I’m not offended or anything, but really.

  6. Brandon: No, we don’t need to cuss. I’m open to just about any ‘house style’ and would conform to it, if developed. Feel free to edit this article’s headline and/or propose some style guidelines on the arborupdate gaggle list.

    All best,

  7. Heh… I don’t know who changed it, but that asterisk is genius. I guess my interest is just in professionalism/image, but I don’t want to limit anyone’s creativity, either. Carry on.
