What is going on over at Grapevine?

By Pots 1 August 2012 7

Email at Grapevine has been down all afternoon and evening. I think the same thing happened just a couple of weeks ago and I feel like it’s been a pretty regular feature over the last couple of years (although with much shorter blackouts).

Anyone know what’s happening?

Should I give up and go to bed?

Does it matter – is facebook/skype/etc going to kill email anyway?

And now i guess grapevine has been bought by IINET, Is there any other local isp left ? Possibly Netspeed but the wait period on the phone is way too high !

Where are all the local isp of canberra gone !

The frosty nights are giving the grapevine in my backyard a hard time too. At the same time the bigpond out the front has frozen over.

Use some sort of webmail account. I access Gmail multiple times a day, and have done so daily for about the last 7 years. There has never been a time when I haven’t been able to access it when I’ve tried.

It also means you can change ISPs without losing your email address.

Social media and Skype serve a different purpose to email, it isn’t going anywhere any time soon.

Interesting you say that. I haven’t actually log into my hotmail or gmail through their web interfaces for years, both are set up in my phone…

No idea what’s going on at Grapevine … probably more of a whirlpool thing.
Yes, you should give up and go to bed.
No, social media and skype will not kill e-mail.
