Bad Cloud! Bad, Bad Cloud!

Talk about timing.

Right around the time I decided to move a lot of my stuff online, Gmail went out:

(via Gmail blog)
We feel your pain, and we're sorry

"Many of you had trouble accessing Gmail for a couple of hours this afternoon, and we're really sorry. The issue was caused by a temporary outage in our contacts system that was preventing Gmail from loading properly."
Mind you, it was only for a couple of hours but this doesn't bode well for my confidence. I still think I'm going to be using "the cloud" as a back up, but I certainly won't be depending on it in the immediate future.

Anyway, more at Lifehaker. Nice to see I'm not the only one with reservations.

Do you trust the cloud?
