Greetings and welcome to Tuesday, Feb 24th.

A number of our readers have written in to report issues accessing GMail.   According to the "Status Update" section of their support site (https://mail.google.com/support), the operators have acknowledged that there was indeed a problem accessing Gmail today, and that the problem has been corrected.  There is no mention made of what the problem specifically was.

We sincerely thank our readers for the submissions regarding situations like this!
