I just got home and got online and when I went open my Gmail, I found Gmail home page looking like this:

I usually just type www.gmail.com in IE, which I was using at time the screenshot was taken, about 10 minutes ago.

Anybody seeing this, with weird spelling?

EDITED: OK< I looked at the page again...I see now there is a " no vowel" thing going on....

Gmail said:
At 6:01 am Pacific Time, during routine maintenance at one of our datacenters, the frontend web servers in that particular datacenter started failing to render the letter 'a' for a subset of users. As error rates escalated, the strain spread to other datacenters. We worked quickly to avoid a cascading failure of the entire alphabet by implementing a stopgap solution that limited the damage to the letters 'a,' 'e,' 'i,' 'o,' and 'u.' As a result, we're experiencing Gmail&#8217;s first temporary vowel outage. (We&#8217;re still investigating whether the letter 'y' is impacted and will post an update here shortly.)
Maybe an April Fool thing.....
