not really had to use it.  I just logged into my admin portal and called the
following phone number: 800-598-3901.  Within a minute I had a capable human

with their support.   He says that  all business apps are online as of about
10 minutes ago.

status of services and look into any issue.  Looks like they have one issue
reported on the 9th so they do maintain it.  Anyway I am satisfied with the

Thanks for the conversation... motivated me to get all the support
information jotted down in case I do run into something.
