I cannot get my mail from GMAIL

Yes, since almost 40 minutes ago I've been trying to get my mail and read it at GMAIL.

Google's Gmail has once again plummeted out of the cloud and the company is scurrying to fix the problem nearly an hour after it went titsup.

Well I'm gonna follow refreshing the page with F5 until get it.

Update: from Google's blog:

The outage itself lasted approximately two and a half hours from 9.30am GMT. We know that for many of you this disrupted your working day. We’re really sorry about this, and we did do everything to restore access as soon as we could. Our priority was to get you back up and running. Our engineers are still investigating the root cause of the problem.

Update 2: A phishing attack appeared during the Gmail outage, scaming Gtalk users to give username and passwords. From WSJ's blog:
A phishing attack is quickly spreading through instant-messaging sessions, including Google Chat, and directing victims to a Web site called “ViddyHo.”
