Dude, Where's My Gmail?

Have you checked your Gmail lately? Better go check if you haven't in a while, because there's been some kind of "reset" at Google that's resulted in missing emails, labels, folders and themes.

Google has officially acknowledged the issue, which was first reported over at the Huffington Post earlier today. The issue, while harrowing for those it affects, has touched only .29% of Gmail users, according to Google.


The most recent update from the Google App Status blog reads thusly:

"Our team is continuing to investigate this issue. We will provide an update by February 27, 2011 7:44:00 PM UTC-5 with more information about this problem. Thank you for your patience. For those Gmail users reporting missing messages, our engineers are working to restore them as soon as possible."


Are any of the Gizmodo faithful in that .29%? Are you going to be OK? [Huffington Post]

Every time I see an airline crash I immediately say "that is why I should never fly on an airplane", much like when I see Google has an incident every few years that might effect less than a third of a percent of their customers I will say "that is why I never store anything in the cloud". Good thing I do not understand statistics or I might draw a different conclusion.
