Ugh, haven't been able to access my Gmail going on two days now.

This is the message I get when I try to log in -

Unusual Usage - Account Temporarily Locked Down

To keep our systems healthy, Google has temporarily disabled your account. This primarily occurs when we detect unusually high levels of activity on your account. In most cases, it should take one hour to regain access. In rare cases, it can take up to 24 hours for access to be reinstated.

2-factor login should prevent break-ins, but I'd get a new key and password just in case.

Oops. Nice job Yahoo.

Help give little Sam Lee the best year of his life.
Sam Lee is a like a lot of two-year-old boys...except that he's fighting a brain tumor and a rare skeletal disorder. Friends and family are rallying to give him the ultimate cross-country tour in the months he has left.
