    Yep, the whole world has noticed: gmail - Twitter Search.

    I wonder how many schools rely on Google Apps for their email? This highlights the potential problems for centrally-managed IT services under BSF. Once you remove the essential services away from the school, you vastly increase the number of points-of-failure; from anywhere on the WAN right down to individual servers or network devices at the chosen data centre. But it won't just affect one school - it will affect all schools.

    Maybe this is a new 'feature' to cloud computing that we have not heard about......

    Just shows what a risky strategy it is trusting everything to a faceless entity somewhere out in the ether... it's a good reality check for some people getting far too carried away with the cloud model imo

    Looks like GMail's IMAP connection is working.

    I can get lot of the old emails as I have offline mode enabled
