The Day When Gmail Was Caught Nude In Public

Oh yes, there’s proof!

It all happened when Firefox was on it’s way to display my Gmail Inbox, but instead of displaying the usual Gmail inbox page, the browser landed in Gmail’s FTP directory. I found it interesting to peep in a little bit, because not only is this unusual, it was also fascinating enough to give me an adrenaline rush!

What’s surprising is that Gmail was in this state for a long 10 – 12 minutes and generally, this could happen due to a couple of technical reasons. Oh and did you see the third screen shot? I wonder what were those for.
