GMail is 704ing me

The idea with switching to GMail was to have rock-solid email, but nobody’s perfect I guess. I’ve been getting 704 errors for about 10 minutes this morning.

Are we spoiled yet?

    Heh – the logo at the top still says ‘beta’ ;-)

    What’s a 704?? I figured it was an HTTP response code but I can’t seem to find it in the RFC (http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616.html) ?

  3. The way it was displayed in may browser (by GMail’s javascript code IIUC) made me believe that it is an HTTP result code (non-standard then?). I didn’t check at the protocol level though.

    Switching to the plain HTML view gave me a page saying “GMail is currently unavailable” but no HTTP error code.

    Heh.
    I’ve spent all of last night trying to export my email from gmail into my Mail.app.
    I’m up to 24,800 messages (and it’s only up to Jan2006)

    704 means that they are making some changes to the code. sometimes it appears a new feature just after the 704, sometimes the feature remains hidden until it’s activated the google with a new change that will cause its 704. So you can be happy of them.

    704:
    “Server Error

    Gmail is temporarily unavailable. Cross your fingers and try again in a few minutes. We’re sorry for the inconvenience.”
