Really, that’s all we can ask of us imperfect beings right? Based on a crazy turn of events this evening, I hereby recant (half of) my cynical life-motto: “If it seems like it can’t get any worse, it will.”
The sordid deets:
It’s 5pm and my friend A is demoing some software on my new idol-worship Macbook, and I log back into my Gmail account only to find this incomprehensible error message:
in Deutschland heißt unser E-Mail-Service Google Mail, nicht Gmail.
Sie können Ihre E-Mails in Deutschland direkt unter http://mail.google.com
But sit tight: the incredibly audacious thing is that (even more than the fact that “Lieber Nutzer” means “Dear User” and not, as A prefers, “Dear Nutcase”) this is…LEGIT!
My gmail was truly “rehubbed” and all I had to do was use mail.google.com vs. gmail.google.com
All on Google servers. All legit. All clean.
So in this case, things didn’t get worse than I expected…. they actually got BETTER! C-raz-y.
