I know many of you may already have Gmail, but does anyone want an invite to it?

It's the new e-mail service from Google. The advantage? You get 1Gb of free storage.

I've got 6 Invites left, so if anyone wants it, post here or PM me.

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!

Not quite! You get 1000 mb of storage! I wonder why they never added in the extra 24 mb to make it exactly 1 Gb?

Because most people using computers don't know enough about them to realise it's 1024 I guess..dunno, not that bothered.

Yeah, it has lots of space, and it has some pretty cool features. I love the conversational layout of e-mails and the replies from them. You might as well try it out.

Have you been using it a lot? You may just be unlucky. I don't know how they work out who should have the ability to give invites out.

I didn't get my first 6 until like a week and a half after I signed up for it... and then they gave me another 6 after that. blink.gif tongue.gif

Supposedly, their launching a new browser soon. It's supposed to be called 'g-browser' which undoubtedly will be popular. The end of Microsoft? Maybe?

Perhaps the end of Microsoft... hmm maybe not.

Gmail has become increasingly popular, and i like the idea of having to apply to random people for ids.... got 14 to give away still and thats after 5 months of having an account...

I don't think people realise that Gmail is in it's Beta Stage of production, which if you look at the small print in the Gmail Forums, you'll see that it means, it checks all of your content and what you used your email for. I wouldn't trust it for sending topsecret information to you MI5 associate....
