Access your Gmail and Google Docs Even When the Cloud Cuts You Off

We love cloud computing, especially here in Hawaii.  We’ve become so dependent on cloud computing that in the rare occasions when some parts of the service go down, you are completely powerless to getting any work done.  Might as well turn off the power, hit the beach, and get a tan, right? Think again!
