    Official Gmail Invite thread.

    Since they keep springing up, I decided to start one thread where people could post invites.
    I'll start by offering 2 for the first two people to reply to this.

    I already have a Gmail, so don't offer me another (it's not fair if some people have more than 1 and others don't have any ).

    However I've done a similar thing at my blog, except I'll probably give it out to the person that sings my praises the most. j/k

    Anyway, where was I? Oh yeah, PLUG.

    It's an invitation to join Gmail. I can't believe you didn't know that, though

    Well, since Gmail is still beta, they increase users by giving existing users these things called invites. Existing Gmail users can email them to anyone they want. I think how many invites a user gets is random, though I may be wrong.

    Edit: Argh, Dan you beat me to it. Oh well, I made it up by spamming that link of yours.

    Well, Gmail is different from hotmail. 1000 megabytes of space, it sorts all your replies into coversations (unlike many free email clients), you don't have to delete emails cause of space, you can archive them, and use the google search engine to search through them. There's these things called labels. You can import contacts from yahoo, outlook, and ect, ect, ect...

    Yeah, I like it man, its my new email of choice. I've gotten but 1 invitation to give out, though. Oh well, I heard its random.

    Also, its only going to be invitational until Gmail goes public. Its fully operational, but in beta phase. When they work out all the kinks, it will be public.

    GMail is cooler than Hotmail, Sharkey. Bob brings up a lot of good points, but it's just VERY fast, very organized, and it lets me keep my e-mails after reading and replying. Also, the reply form is on the same page as the one which you read the e-mail on, which helps. And to top it off, you can feel special because it's invite only. (No invites to give yet, btw)

    God, him again? Oh, really? This is definately NOT a promo, is it? This is why I told the admins about the location field. It's all about wordwrap() !
