HamSammy writes: "After a great uptime record since last year's outage, Google's mail service, Gmail, has been struck with a widespread vowel outage. The main symptom of the outage is an alphabet availability of 80.8%, caused by the widespread lack of the characters "a", "e", "i", "o", and "u" in text on the site, though the effect on "y" in still unknown.
